Three Venues, Three Unique Experiences For Your Special Celebration 

Experience Anna Maria Island Venues’ Trifecta – it’s possible & it’s perfect, we promise. 

Planning that special celebration becomes the top priority post-engagement announcements and this often brings on many overwhelming and crucial decisions for couples. From the dress to the wedding party, guest list, menu, and location, couples often face many tough decisions. The Anna Maria Island Venues event team can simplify the planning process, become that trusted resource in your corner, and offer up some fresh ideas that even you haven’t thought of!  After all, we’ve planned and flawlessly executed thousands of weddings at our top waterfront destinations here in Florida. 

The hardest decision that couples share with us is often tied to the venue. The big decision of where to host your rehearsal dinner, wedding & reception, and farewell brunch can make for many restless nights. The good news is, it doesn’t have to. The trifecta is a product offering that allows our customers the best of all waterfront Anna Maria Island Venue locations, including The Grand Pavilion at the Sandbar, The Sunset Deck at the BeachHouse, and Buttonwood Bay at MarVista.

Hop in your golf cart and follow us down the path of your perfect wedding weekend in paradise here on the west coast of Florida… 

The journey begins at The Sunset Deck At The Beach House where family, close friends, and of course, the crucial wedding party will gather for your rehearsal dinner. You may have just arrived but one sunset from the deck will make you never want to leave. 

There is no better place to thank these loved ones for their support during the wedding preparation process. With gulf views and the largest waterfront deck on the west coast of Florida, this location has it all. Hear the soothing rhythmic murmur of the waves in the background while your parents share that joke about you from your pre-teen days with the group. Sit back, relax, and enjoy one of our signature cocktails as you and your college friends laugh about the good old days!  Enjoy a great meal featuring the finest fresh catch seafood and field to table cuisine on the island. With drinks, a diverse menu, plenty of space, and white sand yards away, The Sunset Deck At The Beach House sets the tone for a weekend that others only dream about. 

‘Not only is this a gorgeous venue, but the service was also outstanding, and the food was super delicious!’ 

The next stop is the most important one of all, your wedding day! So buckle up and scoot on down the street to The Grand Pavilion at the Sandbar!

Tucked among the sea oats and native grasses, the Sandbar Pavilion is your very own private piece of heaven! Dressed in twinkle lights, candles, flowing chiffon draped from the ceiling, and the best sunsets on the island, it’s the perfect place for a romantic wedding ceremony and reception.

 Follow the short path from the Pavilion and discover the wide expanse of sugar-white beaches where you’ll greet the love of your life to celebrate your commitment together.  Standing beneath a beautifully decorated arbor with the Gulf of Mexico as your backdrop, you can begin your life as one in an awe-inspiring way.

‘The Sandbar provided the most wonderful and beautiful setting for our wedding! The food and drink were delicious and all the guests commented how good it was. The setting is gorgeous and the white sand and blue sea provided the best backdrop to the ceremony and reception!’ 

Now that you’ve made it official and the festivities are winding down for your guests (and just getting started for you) it’s time to reflect. So hop back in your golf cart for the final stop, brunch at Buttonwood Bay At MarVista!

Set in the quaint village of Longboat, Buttonwood Bay at MarVista is old Florida charm and an unforgettable experience!  Relax under the age-old Buttonwood trees overlooking peaceful Sarasota Bay and watch the boats pass by with a mimosa and tasty dishes prepared by Chef Rich.  Laugh and cry with your family and friends as you share special memories from the day before and the weekend of your life. 

‘Delicious food, beautiful views, attentive service. The vibe is great at Mar Vista. Outdoor dining right on the water under the funky lighted trees. The servers are not only attentive but smart. Our food was wonderful.’
