We started this journey years ago with the creation of the Anna Maria Island Love Wedding Show. As a board member of the Anna Maria Island Chamber of Commerce, Official Wedding Planner and Certified Visit Florida Destination Weddings Specialist, we saw a need to showcase the beauty of our Island for weddings.
We kept the show small and only invited vendors that we would use personally. We formed partnerships with the best of the island, but we kept finding one missing piece- no local Anna Maria Island company specialized in destination beach weddings. Companies from surrounding areas were charging travel fees to coordinate on the island. Often, the out-of-town companies were not up to date on parking and permit regulations, which vary from city to city on Anna Maria.
We saw that couples needed a simple, one-stop solution to beach weddings.
Anna Maria Island Beach Weddings was born.
