Ponte Vedra Beach Weddings
Ponte Vedra Beach is a community in St. Johns County, Florida. Located eighteen miles southeast of downtown Jacksonville and 26 miles north of St. Augustine, it is part of the Jacksonville Beaches area. It is an upmarket resort area best known for its association with golf. The Sawgrass development is the home of the ATP Tour, the PGA Tour, and The Players Championship, played at the TPC at Sawgrass. The beaches here are very residential and have limited access to the public. Wedding choices on Ponte Vedra consist of beaches behind vacation rentals, Mickler’s Landing, or GTM Research Reserve. The sand on Ponte Vedra beach is very unique and full of shells and sharks teeth. There are very few commercial buildings on the beach and the normal view consists of large beach estates. A truly beautiful spot for a beach wedding, vow renewal, or commitment ceremony.
GTM Research Reserve consists of 3 stunning natural beach access points just South of Mickler’s Landing and Ponte Vedra. Privacy is one of the main attractions to using the GTM Research Reserve as your destination wedding venue. Sharks teeth and shells litter the beach and provide the ideal entertainment for guests awaiting the happy couple.
