When it comes time for you to start planning your special day, you might notice that destination weddings are all the rage, and destination weddings in St. Augustine top the list of romantic places to hold a wedding! Our romantic town has a rich and colorful history that shows in the architecture and in the cobble-lined streets; when you add in our stunning white sand beaches that frame our crystal clear waters, well, there just aren’t too many other places that can offer such picturesque backdrops to your wedding pictures! The oldest city in the nation also offers a variety of things your guests can do during their stay with us – but only when they aren’t attending to important things like your wedding!
What’s Going to Be Your Wedding Backdrop?
Romantic, breathtaking and perfect – all words that can be used to describe the many wedding venues in St. Augustine. After you’ve planned your spa day (brides need pampering, and our spas are simply amazing) and you’ve chosen the horse drawn carriage that will take you to the alter and whisk you and your new husband away after the ceremony, how do you decide where the ceremony will be held? We will list a few spots here to get you started, but please, if you don’t see something that fits your idea of where your special event should be held, just give us a call at the Ocean Gallery Resort and we can help make your day as special and unique as you are!
A beach venue is the most popular of all Augustine wedding spots, and for a very good reason: there is no more beautiful backdrop than the white sand, blue waters and blue sky for your wedding pictures. Best done shoeless in simple white lace for the bride, and perhaps a crisp white madras shirt for the groom, a beach wedding at sunset promises to be an unforgettable way to spend your first moments as husband and wife.
Fountain of Youth
Did you know that the fountain of youth is located in St. Augustine? Ponce de Leon’s Fountain of Youth Archaeological Park is a unique place to say your I do’s! Get married in the new wedding pavilion on the grounds of this ancient park and who knows – maybe you will stay as young as you are at heart. Magical things happen in St. Augustine!
Going to the Chapel
Having a destination wedding doesn’t mean forgoing a church service; our quaint village offers a wide variety of churches and synagogues that guarantee you can have the religious ceremony of your dreams in the most beautiful location on earth.
