Great Beach Wedding Location-Ft Lauderdale Beach

where to get married on fort lauderdale beach

Like every beach town some public entrances are better than others. Whether you’re having a wedding ceremony, vow renewal ceremony or commitment ceremony, sweet, romantic and intimate are attributes most of my clients seek.

Beach Wedding Locations

The primary entrances onto Fort Lauderdale beach is at the intersections of Las Olas and A1A and Sunrise and A1A. While both these locations have many great assets (walk to amenities convenience, parking options), the number of people on the beach may impact the quality you seek for your service.

A Little More North

I’ve found that if you continue traveling up A1A, north of Sunrise to the top end of Ft. Lauderdale Beach, you get a much better option. There are less people here and it is truly a spectacular location. Just past Hugh Taylor Birch park are some of the loveliest beach homes facing the ocean (contrasting to touristy beach retail locations at the other entrances I mention above.) The area I refer to spans from 14th to 18th. It’s more private and there is some excellent street parking along A1A. The street parking ends at 18th but the next light at 20th (19th doesn’t go through to the beach), there is a sneaky little park and indeed another beach entrance with plentiful parking.
