As the summer approaches, romance blossoms…and Out By The Sea Bed & Breakfast specializes in small, intimate weddings on the beach. Couples delight in marrying with their toes in the sand, birds flying overhead and the waves gently breaking on the shore. Many marry as the day draws to an end and catch the splendid sunsets as nature provides the most beautiful array of colors.
At Out By The Sea, we receive many requests for beach weddings. A typical beach wedding consists of close family members and friends with less than 50 guests. Bridal attire varies from a traditional wedding gown to a sundress. Many times the bride and groom dress in matching beach attire and are almost always barefoot!
Families and friends enjoy helping decorate under the B&B with their special chosen colors and themes and the reception varies from catered dinners to casual dishes prepared by the guests.
Music is generally a DJ, or pre-recorded, and occasionally we have a live band. We are fortunate to have many local ministers, and our great Judge Pat, who will happily marry our couples on the beach or in our gardens.
Out By The Sea wedding packages are very affordable, with a weekend wedding and Honeymoon Suite for less than $1,000. The Honeymoon Suite has a very large, heart-shaped jacuzzi and a private deck overlooking the gulf. Breakfast is served in the room. And as a bonus, our golf cart is included in the package and is decorated accordingly.
As we continue to schedule more weddings, we will update our website with beach wedding pictures! Please call or come by Out By The Sea! We take pleasure in helping to make this special day a most treasured memory!
