    My dream wedding venue!

    My husband and I have been traveling to Siesta Key a few years - and once we were engaged, we knew it was where we wanted to celebrate our wedding with our family & friends. I searched for a venue that would allow us to have a beach ceremony and outdoor reception on Siesta Key and Sunset Beach Resort immediately popped up! We went to tour the property, and signed within 5 minutes. I emailed back and forth with Chelly A LOT - and she was always so quick to respond and super helpful with all of my questions. She was very accommodating with all of the reservations and recommended a lot of vendors that we ended up working with! I planned the wedding from Michigan and working with Chelly always put me at ease. Once we were there, the staff kept the property nice and clean - and Shiela was amazing to work with on our reservations. The actual property is beautiful by itself - but once it was transformed into a ceremony and reception space, it was amazing! It allowed us to have the perfect party in the perfect FL weather. (PS. The staircase is to die for!). Highly highly recommend!

    First Choice, Last Choice, Best Choice!

    Sunset Beach Resort on Siesta Key was the first place we visited while shopping around for a venue. We never looked back. The place was immaculate and the natural beauty of the location necessitated very little for decoration. Chelly, Sheila and Billy were unbelievable hosts who also grew up in the home that has been converted to this amazing Resort on a private stretch of pristine white sand. They made sure that everything was perfect for our big day. I can鈥檛 speak highly enough about the immaculate rooms. Everything was so clean and fresh with the most beautiful decor. It played a large role in our photography. If you are looking for a destination wedding that is in paradise look no further. This place is amazing. We have already reserved for our anniversary next year! I can鈥檛 wait!
