Designed with you in mind
Opal Key Resort & Marina is fortunate to be able to offer you a variety of locations for your wedding including the off-site locations of Sunset Key, Fury, The Audubon House, and Truman’s Little White House. You have the ability to choose which location you would like to host your ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception.
It’s your choice if you would like to host all events in the same location or offer your guests a variety of Key West’s best features while celebrating your special day!
The sunset backdrop on the pier is what brings your décor to life. The open layout allows for you and your vendors to customize and create the atmosphere you want for your wedding. Dance under the stars as you peer through a clear top tent or watch the sun dip into the ocean with festival lights twinkling above you. Perfect for hotter months are tents with liners and chandeliers to provide shading for your guests while they enjoy the view.
Our pier is tiled in brick which will provide beautiful rustic accents in your pictures. Your guests will enjoy dancing the night away regardless of their shoe style without incurring the additional expense of a dance floor.
We can accommodate your ceremony, cocktail hour, and/or reception all for as few as 25 people or as many as 250. Enjoy the evening’s events on the pier or combine it with additional locations to create the wedding of your dreams and one your guests will never forget.
Welcome receptions and send off breakfasts can also be hosted on the pier.
Sunset Deck is elevated above the pier on a private roof top designed specifically for the elegant but fun reception. When your guests arrive to the deck after the ceremony, they will be greeted with unobstructed ocean views.
The built-in bar allows for guests to enjoy cocktail hour and after dinner drinks while not being separated from the fun. When adding festival lighting, you will bring the dance floor to life. Less is more when you have a location as perfect as this.
The Deck can accommodate receptions up to 80 people following your ceremony at one of our four location options. You can also host your welcome reception or send off breakfast for up to 100 people.
Our traditional ballroom can be used for any event or combination of events you would like to host. Whether we arrange for it to be used as a primary location or if it is simply used as back-up, you will have peace of mind knowing that your wedding will take place regardless of what mother nature has in mind for your special day. As an added service to our couples and guests, any event that the Opal Key Resort & Marina hosts or caters in a outdoor location, we will hold this indoor back-up space in case of inclement weather. Giving you peace of mind and a stress-free day.
Large enough to accommodate up to 250 people, the ballroom is decorated in earthy colors of browns and mild green. Our neutral decor, dimmed lights, and up lighting will complement the color scheme you have selected for your special night.
One of Key West’s most popular attractions is the crystal blue waters surrounding our island paradise. Sail the tropical waters of Key West on a spacious catamaran while hosting your ceremony, cocktail hour, or reception. The warm ocean breeze paired with the magnificent sunset backdrop is something you and your guests will talk about for years to come.
When using the catamaran as transportation to your Sunset Key ceremony your guests will be offered pre-wedding drinks. You can also use the catamaran as an unforgettable cocktail hour on the water and toast to your perfect day in paradise as you watch the sun slowly disappear beyond the horizon.
If not a part of your wedding day, invite your guests to join you for the welcome reception the night before the wedding while you sail the Atlantic Ocean. There is nothing better than starting your wedding weekend on the water celebrating with your family and friends.
The Audubon House and Tropical Gardens
Imagine your guests wandering through paved brick pathways among orchid-filled trees, the night lit with the soft glow of antique copper lanterns all while enjoying your wedding.
Audubon House and Tropical Gardens, in the heart of Old Town Key West, offers a breathtaking venue for weddings and is just across the street from the Opal Key Resort & Marina.
The gardens have been voted “The Best Outdoor Location” for private events in Key West.
We can accommodate ceremonies, cocktail hour, and receptions at this outdoor venue.
The back deck of the historic home provides a beautiful backdrop for a ceremony for up to 100 people. For reception only, the gardens can accommodate 130 people. The Audubon House and Tropical Gardens can be used for your evening’s events or in combination with our other locations.
For a truly unique experience, the elegant mid-19th century home is available for private tours during the event so your guests can explore the history of Key West and the art of John James Audubon.
Truman Little White House
The tree-canopied, manicured grounds of the Little White House offer a spacious, yet private venue for a wedding ceremony, cocktail hour, and/or reception. The three lawns surrounding Truman’s winter retreat can be used together, individually, or in combination with another location. The front lawn, with tall palms and enormous tropical almond trees forming a garden cathedral, is a favorite location for ceremonies. The side lawn, shaded by a variety of tropical shade trees, lends itself to receptions and dinners. The back lawn is an open spacious area that can be tented or left open to the stars.
The Truman Little White House is one of the largest wedding locations for ceremonies and receptions in Key West. We can comfortably accommodate 250 people but can set-up properly for a more intimate 50 person wedding without anyone feeling overwhelmed by the space. Whether you choose to host your entire wedding celebration or combine the gardens of the Little White House with other events, it is an ideal setting to make your perfect day. It is also a great location for your welcome reception.
Invite your wedding party to take a tour of the Little White House! The house is filled with original furnishings that were used by President Truman and reflects the decor of the 1940’s and early 1950’s. The presidential dining room table is perfect for an intimate wedding rehearsal dinner
