The first question everyone asks is… Where should our special day take place?

Should you wish to stand barefoot in the sand, gracefully ensconced in a tropical garden, or on the deck of your own privately chartered boat, As You Wish Weddings and Events can help you find the perfect location for your very special day.

As You Wish Weddings and Events designs ceremonies for people that can be celebrated at select Florida Keys locations including State Parks, beaches, aboard boats and at selected hotels and restaurants. We suggest going barefoot (a true Key West tradition), but a more dramatic affair can always be arranged.

Beach Ceremonies

One of the most popular reasons to come to Key West is to enjoy our white sand beaches and our spectacular sunsets. Imagine yourself standing barefoot beside your betrothed, surrounded by friends and family, as the sunsets into the beautiful azure waters of the Gulf of Mexico. If you really concentrate – you can even hear its sizzle as it hits the water.

Tropical breezes waft by as you look into each others eyes and vow to spend eternity together. You can stand barefoot in the surf, stroll along the beach or have a more private ceremony with a gazebo, awning or tent. During the day, or at sunset; with friends and family or as your own private getaway, it’s your day – you get to choose. Everything and anything is available through As You Wish Weddings and Events all to make your day perfect!

On The Water

For those who are more adventurous you may choose to have your ceremony offshore on a privately chartered yacht, either power or sail. While you cruise along the coast you can enjoy the smell of the salt sea air, the tropical winds and enjoy the warm sunshine the Florida Keys are so famous for.

You can relax on your own private sunset sail, as the skies vivid colors surround you while you exchange your vows, and you hold your on-board reception under the stars. It can all be there for you, As You Wish. Vessels from 36′ to 120′ are available for parties of up to 125.

In Historical Settings

Your special day will go down in history, so why not consider a venue with equal historical significance. Key West has many famous historical sites, most of which are available for your special day. You can choose from such diverse locations as The Lighthouse, Fort Zachary Taylor State Park, and many of the Key West’s cultural and historical museums.

And don’t overlook the more famous homes of Key West’s past and present residents, including the Truman summer White House, the Hemingway House, The Robert Frost Cottage and many others. All will welcome you for your day of celebration.
