Re-planning An Awesome Wedding During A Global Pandemic

The Pandemic may have caused you to delay or change your wedding plans. If you, like so many couples are having to rebook your wedding, have you considered a beach wedding? Florida’s First Coast, Fernandina, Jacksonville and St. Augustine are most definitely worth a closer look.

“Sometimes in the waves of change we find our true direction.”

In Ponte Vedra Beach, a little north of St. Augustine you’ll find several classic, refined and stunning wedding venues. The spectacular Marriott at Sawgrass with a Championship Golf Course backdrop is a favorite for destination weddings as well as close to home weddings. The Marriott at Sawgrass is right next door to the famous “TPC Sawgrass” golf course and offers privileges to the PGA Golf courses. The Marriott’s “Cabana Beach Club” offers access to Ponte Vedra’s magical beach which is close by.



The Ponte Vedra Inn and Ponte Vedra Lodge are both excellent choices for on-the-beach or overlooking the beach weddings. With gorgeous surrounding, miles of unspoiled beaches Ponte Vedra is the place for truly romantic beachside weddings.

Thinking about the Atlantic, have you considered a Sunrise Wedding? What a magical way to say “I Do” and celebrate new beginnings as the Sun climbs above the horizon on your special day.
Jacksonville Beach offers lots of choices that include the Spanish/Mediterranean style of the charming Casa Marina Hotel only footsteps from the waves. The intimate, yet breathtaking Coastal Occasions at Casa Bella Village. The beachy bungalow style Fig Room and 6th Avenue North that holds up to 200 guests are also very popular First Coast Wedding Venues.
