    So naturally beautiful you don't have to do much!

    We recently got married at Sunset Beach Resort- you could not ask for a more beautiful venue on the beach!! It's quaint, gorgeous & so photogenic. All of my guests were blown away by the gardens & of course the view! We had a "micro-wedding" of 15 guests, the ceremony was on the beach in front of the resort, cocktails & drinks at the resort after. The unit we rented was also light, bright & beach-cottage chic which makes for the perfect getting ready photos. Chelly was fantastic, we were made to feel right at home and everything went smoothly. We could not have asked for a more perfect venue and day. Choosing a venue that's beautiful so that you don't have to work hard to make it beautiful is the way to go

    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!

    Sunset Beach Resort's reply:

    Caroline it was a pleasure working with you on your wedding and so happy to hear the wonderful things you said about us in your review. We hope we see you again soon! Maybe for your anniversary!!
