The small barrier island off Fort Myers—once only accessible by boat—hosts intimate weddings throughout the year and a special vow renewal ceremony every Valentine’s Day for up to 120 couples.

Imagine a lobster bake on private white sand at the edge of the Atlantic, dancing in the modern oceanfront Dunes Ballroom, drinks on the inviting waterfront open-air terrace alongside the Yacht Club, or vows around the lushly landscaped outdoor pool terrace of the Spa Palazzo (inspired by the Alhambra Palace). The in-house planner, Boca by Design, takes care of all the ceremony and reception flowers and decor. Wedding menus created by the hotel's culinary team are customized, whether that means rack of lamb and a gourmet macaroni and cheese station, or a Key lime wedding cake and chic all-white dessert bar.
The Henderson, Destin
Consistently voted as one of the most romantic places to stay in Florida, The Henderson feels like a hidden treasure, thanks to its 1.3 miles of private beach and the state park next door. The Henderson works with couples to plan ceremonies right on the sugar-sand beaches of the Gulf, or on any one of the manicured green spaces like the grand lawn or beachside green, both of which are adjacent to the beach and state park. For the reception, take your pick of one of two magnificent ballrooms, the poolside patio, or on the rooftop terrace, which features panoramic views of the shore and city.
