Located on the southern shores of the Gulf of Mexico, Naples, Marco Island and the Everglades make up what’s known as Florida’s Paradise Coast. The area offers shopping, art, outstanding restaurants, powdery white sand beaches, golf courses, water sports galore and palatial residences. The natural beauty of this beachside paradise makes it the perfect location for a destination wedding, honeymoon or romantic escape.

The Paradise Coast offers a myriad of activities for your guests to enjoy. From the Naples Zoo to guided boat tours and a wide array of fishing excursions, any one of your loved ones will find endless ways to spend their days.
As for places to embark on oceanfront fun, Barefoot Beach Preserve, just north of Naples, regularly appears in the top 

ten for its expanse of white sand and wealth of activities within close proximity.

Warm weather year-round allows for weddings to take place virtually any time and the wide array of choices from beach-front ceremonies to hotel gardens and gazebos, give couples the flexibility to have their event almost anywhere.

Couples will want to stick around after the wedding is through to enjoy their honeymoon on the Paradise Coast. Romantic accommodations and awe-inspiring sunsets create the perfect ambiance for intimacy and connection.

Area restaurants such as Olio on the Bay, Snook Inn, Café de Marco, Naples Tomato and Kurrents offer scrumptious menus and ideal environments to kick back and relax.

As for the places to rest your head or say your vows, LaPlaya Beach and Golf Resort, The Ritz-Carlton, Naples and even the Old Marco Island Inn & Suites (dating back to 1883) are just a few of the gorgeous accommodations you can find.

When you are considering where to celebrate your seaside destination wedding, consider this little slice of heaven, consider the Paradise Coast.
