Imagine exchanging your vows on a private beach, under the warm Florida sun, with the azure sea as your backdrop. Sounds dreamy, doesn’t it? This is the enchanting reality of getting married at Sunset Key and Little Palm Island in Key West – two of Florida’s most romantic wedding destinations.

Sunset Key: A Tropical Paradise

Sunset Key is a 27-acre luxury island located just off the coast of Key West. Known for its picturesque views and intimate setting, Sunset Key Cottages offers several enchanting options for couples, including secluded beach ceremonies and sunset receptions out on a catamaran.

The island’s tropical ambiance, complete with lush palm trees and serene beaches, creates a magical setting for a wedding. The cottages are designed to blend seamlessly into the landscape, offering a sense of privacy and tranquility that adds an extra touch of romance to your special day.

Little Palm Island: An Intimate Oasis

Just a little further off the coast, you’ll find Little Palm Island. Accessible only by seaplane or boat, this private island resort specializes in intimate weddings. Whether it’s just the bride and groom alone or a small gathering of up to 10 adult guests, Little Palm Island ensures your day will be an unforgettable one.

Their Steal Away Package includes the ceremony, accommodation, and a gourmet dinner for two. Each detail of the wedding is thoughtfully curated to reflect the couple’s unique love story, from the tropical flower arrangements to the candlelit beachfront dinner.
