Have Your Wedding in A Historic City
St. Augustine is one of the most unique places in the United States and perfect for a beach wedding. Hosting your beach wedding in the oldest city adds culture that just can not be replicated elsewhere.
St. Augustine — Your Beach Wedding Destination
There are multiple beach stretches that are an ideal fit for your upcoming beach wedding or ceremony. St. Augustine has beaches that are owned by the state, the county of St. John’s, and also the city itself. No worries — we know how to handle each and who owns what! Anastasia State Park is a popular choice for a beach wedding and is the closest beach to the historic district. This state owned beach is very natural and is absent of buildings. With plenty of parking and a view of the lighthouse, this is a perfect fit for a large amount of our clients.
St. Augustine Has a Lot To Offer
When planning a destination beach wedding, you want to select a city that will offer an overall abundance of activities to entertain both you and your guests. Choosing St. Augustine for your beach wedding destination will not disappoint.
The oldest fort in the United States, built by the Spanish in the 1500’s, is just one of the landmarks and beautiful landscapes of St. Augustine. Visit the many local restaurants and pubs including the Columbia and Harry’s. Both great choices for a rehearsal or wedding dinner. Take a romantic horse and carriage ride down the brick roads that line the city’s paths. Let your guests spend time exploring the historic district and walking St. George street. What better place to have your beach wedding, vow renewal, or commitment ceremony than right here in the oldest city!
The Oldest City Presents a Historic Backdrop
Photography is another huge benefit when you select St. Augustine for your beach wedding destination. Many of our couples will have their wedding on one of the various beach locations we recommend, and then add on an additional photo session downtown. The historic district of St. Augustine offers a couple and their photographer a truly diverse canvas to work with. European architecture, cobblestone walkways, historic buildings, and the beautiful Bridge of Lions are just a few of the countless backdrops offered in the city. Your wedding photography is such an important part of your special day and makes your St. Augustine beach wedding unique.
When to Get Married in St. Augustine
Having your wedding, elopement, or vow renewal in St. Augustine is beautiful all year-round. However, here are a few things to consider for each season:
- Spring Beach Weddings: Spring in St. Augustine presents a nice balance of weather that’s not too hot or cold, allowing you to enjoy the beach and St. Augustine’s historic downtown area.
- Summer Beach Weddings: While summer temperatures in St. Augustine are warmer, the summer also allows you to combine your wedding with an ideal beach summer vacation. And, in summer and spring, longer days mean more opportunities for capturing photos before sunset.
- Fall Beach Weddings: Weather in the fall is balmy and beautiful, and the beaches are typically less crowded with tourists as summer vacation has come to an end.
- Winter Beach Weddings: Winter beach weddings have cooler temperatures and earlier sunsets, but provide less crowded beaches and off-season discounts for hotels.
