Botanical Bliss For Your Special Day
Experience the serenity and tranquility of Marie Selby Botanical Gardens for your special wedding day event. We encourage you to enjoy the breathtaking tropical plants and landscapes, historic Mansion, and stunning backdrop of our bayfront location. Whether you seek a simple garden wedding, a grand gala under the stars, an indoor nuptial, or a combination, you can find your perfect one-of-a-kind setting here. Selby Gardens offers the added value of its close proximity to downtown Sarasota.
Weddings may be held anywhere throughout the Gardens. The most popular locations are the Schimmel Wedding Lawn and Pavilion, the Gazebo, the Banyan Grove, and The Wedding Oak adjacent to the Christy Payne Mansion. Additional areas that lend themselves to nuptial celebrations are the Great Room by the Bay indoors or outdoors at the Christy Payne Mansion.
