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.

Everything we could have asked for and more!!

I was honored to be asked to plan my niece's beach wedding but it was a daunting task from 900 miles away. Vicky and Sun and Sea made it such an easy process for me and my family. They were absolute professionals and patiently answered each and every question with great guidance resulting in a beautiful wedding and incredible reception. Thank you Sun and Sea and Vicky!

Very happy bride!

I cannot say enough great things about Sun and Sea Beach weddings! My ceremony and reception were absolutely beautiful. My wedding coordinator, Vicky, kept me on track the entire evening and didn’t miss a beat when it came to my guests. She paid attention to all the little details, made sure there was food and drinks waiting for us after returning from photos, and was flexible with any last-minute changes. We all had an incredible time! They are professional, personable, accommodating and excellent at what they do. Vicky was simply amazing from the décor and set up, to the last song of the night. I couldn’t be happier with my wedding and highly recommend them!

Easy planning and a beautiful ceremony

You cannot find a more dedicated group of people than those at Sun and Sea Beach Weddings! Nick and Michelle played vital roles in ensuring our day was the absolute best. We had a very short timeline for our destination wedding but we enjoyed every second of the planning process with them. They handled everything with ease while taking care of every small detail. Whether you are planning from near or far the team is timely and extremely reliable through phone, text, email, or even face to face at their new studio. It helped making planning our event easy and convenient. The design team created the most beautiful arbor, flower arrangements, and ceremony setup. We cannot thank them enough for helping make our day so special!
