The Beach Ceremony is held on the white sandy beach at The Point, a beautiful setting protected by a sea wall of rocks on one side and a beach gazebo with lush tropical greenery on the other. As the sandy path curves with the island to The Point, you will make your grand ceremony entrance with blue water of the Atlantic as your background and soft, white sand under your feet. Our beach can host Key West weddings from 15 to 32 guests.
Garden Ceremony or Cocktail Hour
The Garden at Sunset Key is a lush oasis filled with tall palm trees, blooming flowers, and green grass. The brick paved pathway leads the way to the garden, which is surrounded by cottages and a white picket fence creating a romantic private location. This is an ideal location for ceremonies as well as cocktail receptions. Adding a few cocktail and cabaret tables is all that is needed to bring this area to life. Our tropical garden can host Key West weddings from 15 to 32 guests.
Paradise Cottage Reception
The Paradise Cottage reception includes a private oceanfront cottage for the happy couple, cocktail hour on the patio, plus dinner and dancing under a beautiful flowing white illuminated tent. Receptions with plated dinners requires a minimum of 15 guests, while the buffet requires a minimum of 25 guests, and the individual station set up requires a minimum of 40 guests. All three options can accommodate up to 80 guests.
The most intimate reception setting following the beach ceremony is the Latitudes Dinner option, an indoor semi-private seating at the resort’s award-winning Latitudes restaurant for up to 20 guests. This is recommended as the best option for vow renewals and commitment ceremonies, although all the options listed are available.
Chartered Catamaran Reception
For those seeking variety, there’s the Sunset Key ceremony followed by a cocktail hour on a chartered catamaran with limited open bar and choice of three butler-passed hors d’oeuvres, culminating in a reception at the Pier with choice of a plated, buffet, stations, family-style dinner or heavy hors d’oeuvres served reception style. This option can accommodate up to 127 guests.
