Selby Gardens Weddings
Marie Selby Botanical Gardens, located in downtown Sarasota, is a beautiful waterfront setting for a wedding. It is a one-of-a-kind with its beautiful live oaks, banyans, bamboo, palms, and serene sunsets over Sarasota Bay.
The decision as to where to hold a wedding at Selby Gardens can be overwhelming.
Wedding ceremonies may be held anywhere on the grounds, from the open and beautiful Schimmel Wedding Lawn and Pavilion, under the lush foliage of the banyan trees, or the serene and breathtaking area beside Sarasota Bay.
If you want to be indoors Michael’s on the Bay, is fabulous with its glass windows facing Sarasota Bay and its spectacular sunset views.
A perfect spot for your cocktail reception is the Rainforest Garden. This elevated outdoor garden simulates a tropical rainforest and includes banyan trees and a 12-foot waterfall. It is also ideal rehearsal dinners.
Dinner can be, open air, under the banyan trees or inside a tent.
Lighting is important as it creates the magical ambience that brings the gardens to life
