Are you looking for the perfect venue for your upcoming destination wedding in the Florida Keys? If you’ve already narrowed down your search to the string of jewels that are the Keys, then bravo — you’re already on the right track for the celebration of a lifetime. If, however, you aren’t sure whether to hold your event at a hotel or another venue, look no further than Mangrove Marina. As far as Florida Keys weddings are concerned, you would be hard-pressed to find a more magnificent setting anywhere.
Get Married at a Marina?
Now you might be asking: Why a marina instead of a hotel? Well, as it turns out, our venue offers several advantages over a hotel wedding. For starters, oceanfront hotels can be prohibitively expensive, especially if you rent the entire property. Mangrove Marina is literally right on the water — guests can find an ocean view without even trying. The setting is also decidedly less formal than a hotel, giving you the perfect canvas to create exactly the wedding you desire. With an oceanfront pool, Tiki hut area, and BBQ spots, all the amenities are in place for an unforgettable party. The spot is also protected by a ring of mangrove trees (hence the name), which means your event is less likely to suffer setbacks due to inclement weather — even during hurricane season.
Best of all, thanks to our array of houseboats available for rent, the bride and groom can enjoy the comfort and convenience of a fully equipped honeymoon suite without ever leaving the venue. As if that weren’t enough, the houseboats themselves are stunning, featuring outdoor patio seating, galley kitchens, full bathrooms, and cable TV with WiFi. You couldn’t ask for a more beautiful and luxurious setting for your wedding night.
Another benefit that you won’t find at most hotels: Mangrove Marina is dog- and pet-friendly. If you have your heart set on making your furry friend a part of your wedding celebration, then you won’t have to worry — he or she will be as welcome as any two-legged family member. The realities of traveling with a pet can often be a hassle for those planning a destination wedding. With Mangrove Marina, a large portion of that weight is lifted from your shoulders before you’ve even left home.
Plenty to See and Do
A common roadblock when it comes to destination weddings: the visiting guests are often left with a lot of free time on their hands. Our convenient location will ensure that your loved ones are never left wanting for something exciting to do. In the unlikely event that anyone is able to tear themselves away from the natural beauty of the marina, there are bike rentals, shopping outlets, a beauty salon, and a movie theater all located within a quarter-mile.
Unforgettable Florida Keys Experience
With all these benefits and more to enjoy, your guests will never wonder why you didn’t choose a hotel wedding. If anything, they’ll praise your ingenuity and seek out a similar waterfront setting for their next event. When it comes to Florida Keys weddings, Mangrove Marina provides a uniquely unforgettable experience.
