Beach Front Weddings on Anna Maria Island

 

 

 

Our waterfront venue is one of Anna Maria Island’s most appealing sites for wedding celebrations. Located at the South end of the island, Gulf Drive Café overlooks sugar-white sand, the Gulf of Mexico’s turquoise-emerald waters and multi-colored horizon during sunset. Our team of experts will work with you on creating your perfect tropical dream wedding.

For your ceremony, the Gulf waves and setting sun provide a picturesque backdrop when saying, “I Do.”  Only steps away from your reception, you can tie the knot near the coastline on a romantic sandy walkway of multi-colored rose petals. You may also choose to have the ceremony performed at the Seastar Sands, our private beach complete with seven miniature tiki huts.

The Sunset and Seaside Tikis

Our rustic Sunset Tiki is a reception space perfectly suited for groups up to 150 guests.  Spacious and open-aired, our staff will create an elegant layout, based on your choices, with white padded chairs and tables around the dance floor.  The wedding party and guests are also welcome to dance barefoot in the sand at the Seastar Sands. Smaller groups of fewer than thirty guests may also choose to have the reception at our smaller Seaside Tiki. Here you can enjoy your dinner at our custom 20-foot wood banquet table and dine alfresco with your toes in the sand.
