Best Places for a Beach Wedding

Having a beach wedding is no doubt one of the more romantic settings you can choose to celebrate your special day. So which places are optimal for this event? Here are just a few places to whet your appetite.

Ogunquit, Maine

Ogunquit, which means “beautiful place by the sea”, offers a picturesque location for a beach wedding. Discovered by artists over a century ago, it was transformed into the breathtaking town it is today. It offers everything from seaside relaxation to intimate museums, art galleries and hikes in the mountains of Maine. You can host your wedding along the one and a quarter mile stretch of beach known as Marginal Way. They also offer a clambake cocktail hour and a feast of famous Maine lobster for dinner.

Kapalua Bay Beach, Maui, Hawaii

Hawaii is probably well known as the best place to go to for beach weddings. However, nothing beats Kapalua Bay with its reputation as being the best. Situated between two lava points which shapes the shore into a perfect crescent, it is an ideal setting for your wedding. The beach is well known for its tranquil surf and even though there are many sunbathers during the day, in the evening, the beach is usually cleared giving you that romantic setting needed for the perfect ceremony.

Makena Cove, Maui

This is rapidly becoming a favorite spot for many couples. With black lava rock, white-sand beach, turquoise water and fantastic views of Molokini and Kaho’olawe, Makena cove offers a beautiful backdrop for a beach wedding. Perfect at anytime of the day, it’s a great location for wonderful pictures and memories. However, parking is limited so make plans ahead of time before the big day.

Navarre Beach, Florida

This is Florida’s best kept secret! Located between Pensacola Beach and Destin, Navarre is a stretch of breathing and unspoiled beaches. It is more secluded than other beaches in Florida and can give you the privacy and romantic setting you’re looking for. Dazzling white sands and emerald green waters of the Gulf of Mexico and Santa Rosa Sound are your neighbors and don’t forget the great preservation areas that are excellent for hikes before or after the vows have been exchanged.

Vancouver Island – British Columbia

With so many wonderful beaches to choose from, it can be difficult selecting just one for your wedding. One such beach is Qualicum which spreads gently in front of a small pleasant town on the east side of the Island. There are numerable beachside pullouts and the air is filled with not just the tangy goodness of the salt from the sea, but the array of floral displays that makes it unique and special. If Qualicum is not your scene, you can always check out other beach sites like Spider Lake Provincial Park, Comox, Kye Bay, Seal Bay Regional Park, Campbell River, or one of the most popular beaches Long Beach. Whichever you decide, Vancouver offers a setting that is not only pleasing to the senses, but one that is sure to have you making a lot of memories that will last for a lifetime.
