Vilano Beach Weddings

Vilano Beach lies just North of St. Augustine and offers the same travel time into the historic district.  Vilano is a heavily residential area that offers a few amazing beach wedding locations.  The team of Sun and Sea love the photography options at Vilano due to the shallow water color and rock formations.  The water being more shallow gives us great opportunity to capture amazing blues and aquas that you might not get in other areas.

Vilano is an ideal choice for a relaxing vacation. Local restaurants such as Cap’s on the Water and Aunt Kate’s are amazing choices for dinner or reception spots. The sand on the Vilano Beach is a coquina sand mixture which truly shows the essence of St. Augustine. There is free parking off the beach so there’s no need to pay to get in and then from there, you’re only a short walk away from enjoying the beach.

Another huge benefit for beach wedding couples on Vilano is the number of vacation rentals.  Many of our couples looking to rent a house for the week and turn their destination wedding into a vacation go in this direction.  Our team even own’s a house on the beach here.  View Castlegate for more information regarding our property.
