About

The Back Yard of Love is a beautiful and intimate setting for your special day. Situated on the grounds of Hibiscus Coffee & Guesthouse, under a canopy of old, majestic oaks and strung lights, this magical setting is the perfect backdrop for an event you will never forget. Simple and comfortable. Elegant yet casual.

We can host your wedding or if you prefer, you can hold your ceremony just down the street on the sugar-white sands of one of America's most beautiful beaches, then you and your party can migrate to our romantic garden setting for the reception. Rehearsal dinner, bridal brunch, reunion or private party, we can host up to 75 guests in a relaxed atmosphere for an occasion you'll remember for a lifetime.

Adirondacks, highboys, white tables and chairs, there is an eclectic mix of seating. For music, there is a stage for live performances and we offer a sound system, suitable for our venue and a sound engineer.

The Back Yard of Love is tucked away behind Caf茅 Hibiscus. We do have partnership wth Grayton Beach Catering. They can be found at graytonbeachcatering.com. We also have a vendor list to reference for all wedding categories.

We have 13 distinctly different accommodations available for you and your guests, all furnished and decorated with a vintage, Old Florida feel. Our rooms all have a mini or full-sized refrigerator, microwave oven, coffee pot, iron and ironing board, private bath and WiFi. Three of our accommodations are one bedroom apartments with full kitchen and two others share a kitchen and spacious common area. You and your guests will also enjoy a wonderful breakfast every morning in the Caf茅, and we are within walking distance of a variety of local eateries.

    A big thank you to Kurt and Warren for doing their part to make our weekend wedding such a perfect event. The Back Yard of Love was a beautiful setting and a perfect size for our wedding and ceremony (70 guests). And to have family and close friends stay there on-site was so nice and intimate. Thank you to everyone at Hibiscus!

    The Hibiscus Backyard of Love was the perfect venue for our wedding reception after our destination beach wedding on Grayton Beach. After searching for the perfect place and looking at numerous resorts, my heart literally skipped a beat when I walked onto the Hibiscus property for the first time. I knew immediately this was the place I wanted to make memories at with my family and friends. If you are looking for something enchanting, quaint and memorable, then look no further than the Hibiscus BYOL. My guests really enjoyed the atmosphere and I know they will remember our time there for years and years to come. Special thanks to Emery and Warren and the rest of the Hibiscus staff for providing such great service!
