Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life. On the beautiful beach of Fort Zachary Taylor State Park you'll create memories to cherish for a lifetime. Known around the world as Key West's best beach, Fort Zachary Taylor is a 54 acre park offering 5 reservable sites for a wedding ceremony by the water, on the beach, or in the historic Fortress and 2 exclusive private options for receptions. Couples have the choice of hosting their wedding ceremony, within 2 hour time blocks throughout the day. Ceremony sites are roped off and reserved signs put in place for the duration of the chosen time block.
R1- The Driftwood is located on the west side of the park on the Key West Shipping Channel. A great place during the day with shade under the Chikee Hut and a wonderful place to watch the sunset
R2- The Point Among locals referred to as “The Point”, this spot is located on the west side of the Park where the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico combine. R2 offers fabulous sunset views year round. Located at the entry of the Key West Shipping channel R2 is always an active site with sunset boats sailing by, fishing boats coming and going and an occasional cruise ship passing, it is a breathtaking experience.
R3-The Beachfront is situated on the Southwest part of the beach. A great place to wiggle your toes in the sand and say "I do."
R4- Also referred to as “The East Beach,” R4 is nestled on white sand and tropical vegetation on the east side of the Park. The R4 site is in the midst of Jamaican palms and lush sea grapes, which creates a secluded atmosphere for small or large groups. If you are looking to host both a ceremony and reception we have the perfect location!
All receptions start at sunset and our agreements are based on 4 hours (plus 2 hour ceremony). Host your ceremony with your toes in the sand right before the sun goes down. After the ceremony everyone can walk down the beach for your private reception. The Park officially closes to the public at sunset, at that time the venue becomes exclusive to your party. The deck is the perfect spot for cocktail hour and dancing. Your dinner tables will be set up in the sand in the midst of beautiful vegetation. To create the perfect ambiance with tiki torches to lead the way a fire pit is set up on the main beach area beyond your dinner tables. Imagine.... dancing under a canopy of stars on the beach in Key West surrounded by only your friends and family!
