The beach end at Eighth Avenue South often called the Wedding Beach or Wedding Park, has always been a popular location for a wedding. Reconstruction of the park several years ago took this into account, and the park was designed with space for seating, lush, picturesque landscaping and the appropriate backdrop of sand, sky and setting sun (at least if the sun is setting at the time of your wedding).
Quick Beach Ceremony
Nothing stops you from walking onto the beach and having a simple small quick ceremony for under six people, no reservations or fees involved. You must find proper parking of course, and use a legal beach access point (there are many in Naples) to get to the beach, but no other requirements are involved. For ceremonies of six or more you must contact Community Services at 239-213- 7120.
Wedding on the Water
If you want to take the beach wedding experience to the next level, consider a wedding on a yacht. There are a variety of boats available for private charter.
