Cape Coral Weddings - One of the best wedding locations in beautiful and sunny Southwest Florida is the Cape Coral Westin!
One of my daughters recently got married. She had wanted her wedding to be outside on the water but not at the beach.
Well, I couldn't think of a better place than the Westin, Cape Coral's premier luxury waterfront resort and one of the chain's most highly rated hotels worldwide.
It is gorgeous ....... and the perfect spot for ceremony, reception and honeymoon. The staff was awesome ...... from event coordinators, to servers, concierge, and housekeeping. I had only 2 months to prepare and they helped me pull off our amazing wedding!
We were able to have the ceremony outside on the water and for the reception, use the private party room attached to the resort's Marker 92 restaurant, known as the Mariner Room, since we only had about 40 guests. There are also several ballrooms for larger wedding parties.
If you honeymoon at the resort, you'll love the convenience of getting ready before the wedding in your room or suite.
There are so many beautiful spots for photographs, including outdoor terraces with lush plantings of flowers, the boats and yachts at the marina ....... and indoors, a dramatic fountain in the middle of a spiral staircase in the lobby.
Just before the ceremony, groomsmen can wait downstairs, while the bridal party waits in a seating area on the second floor at the top of the spiral stairs.
When it was time to get married, my daughter walked down the staircase, through the lobby, then outdoors through a gazebo, and down steps where our guests were seated, to meet up with her groom on a terrace in front of the water.
Despite the heat, we were comfortable because we had shade and breezes off the river ..... it was truly a lovely spot for the ceremony.
A grassy area next to the terrace was the perfect place to take wedding photos.
After taking photographs, we headed over to the reception to celebrate, enjoy a delicious dinner, dance, and cut the cake.
What was nice about renting the Mariner Room was that we could step outside and dance to live music being played at the Nauti Mermaid, the Westin's outdoor bar and grill.
Not only do I highly recommend the Westin for Cape Coral weddings, but I also recommend:
Here's a cool idea for the ceremony part of a small wedding ........ you can arrange to have the hotel's boat taken out to sea and have a captain marry you right out on the water!

The Westin is our top choice for a wedding, but if that doesn't work out for you, Brew Babies, a fine dining restaurant that looks like an Italian villa, would be a fine second choice.
