From small weddings and elopements to romantic vow renewals, discover the ultimate venue for your intimate ceremony in the “heart of the Florida Keys.” At Tranquility Bay Resort, our inspiring sanctuary is easy to find yet hard to leave, making you and your guests feel a million miles away. Feel the sand sift through your sun-kissed toes as you stroll along a palm-lined paradise towards the Oceanfront Gazebo. Here, your love will take center stage in front of up to 25 of your closest companions in the great outdoors.

Timed to perfection with Mother Nature, your private ceremony will unfold surrounded by stunning scenery before the sun starts to set. Then, capture the moment in the blissful light as you gaze at the golden sunset from the gazebo and make memories that last a lifetime. Our team of dedicated staff will help you create your dream day with a charming, personal feel. Please contact sales@tranquilitybay.com.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What time should my ceremony start?
    Most photographers recommend 1.5 hours prior to official sunset time. This allows for good lighting still available for post-ceremony photos. You can visit www.sunrisesunset.com/calendar. All outdoor events end by 8pm.
     
  • Where does the sun set?
    The sun sets on the Florida Bay (west) side of the island and the specific area changes based on the season. Our Gazebo directly overlooks the Bay.
     
  • Where will the restrooms be for my guests if we are outside?
    There are restrooms located in the Lobby. We also recommend that you reserve a unit in one of Beachfront or Waterfront buildings near the Gazebo.
     
  • Can we rent a golf cart?
    We do not have golf carts on property.
     
  • Where do I get ready on my wedding day?
    Brides typically get ready in their beach house, or in the beach house of a family member. We recommend the Beachfront 3-Bedroom unit directly overlooking the Gazebo. This creates a natural entrance.
