Castillo de San Marcos Weddings
Looking for a unique space for your upcoming wedding? Castillo De San Marcos is the oldest masonry fort in North America. The fort was built over 340 years ago by the Spanish to protect the waterways around St. Augustine. The age and timeless beauty of the fort adds depth and drama to any event.
For years Sun and Sea has performed weddings and events at the Fort. It is one of our favorite spots to both decorate and photo. After dinners and entertainment are logistically easy with the fort being located right in the heart of the historic district. A horse and carriage ride can also be reserved to carry the couple to the destination post ceremony.
