Description:

The Grand Pavilion at The Sandbar is a slice of paradise on world-famous Anna Maria Island, Florida. This beachfront venue is an idyllic spot for a waterside wedding, complete with Gulf of Mexico views and the sugar sands for which Florida’s west coast is famous. The open-air, canopied space can hold 180 guests comfortably, allowing you to invite all the friends and family on your list while maintaining an intimate atmosphere.

 

Facilities and Capacity

We offer a variety of luxe locations, giving couples flexibility in their planning. Prior to the ceremony, the bridal party can relax in a plush getting-ready area in The Sandbar Restaurant. A beach ceremony on Florida’s sugar sands can be held in front of the restaurant, complete with an aisle, an arbor, and chairs. Host your reception in the open-air pavilion’s covered event space. With room for 180 guests, this restaurant-adjacent space is a perfect way to enjoy the elements while also staying protected from them. Should inclement weather arise, The Sandbar offers a rain plan that maintains the beauty of a beach wedding, including weather screens to shield your guests while allowing them to remain beachside.

 

Services Offered

The team here is dedicated to making each wedding a memorable one. Onsite planners offer a complimentary consultation to get you started on your journey to the aisle. This team of professionals will be by your side from start to finish, coordinating every detail for your big day. The venue also offers a signature gift: a sand ceremony with a glass heart filled with some of the same white sand on which you’ve just said your vows. Beach ceremonies also include an hour of photography, as well as an officiant and day-of coordinator. Chairs for up to 20 guests will be provided, with more available upon request. The space is also available for birthday parties, corporate events, family reunions, holiday parties, and other special events.

 

Cuisine

We offer fresh ingredients and second-to-none service. From farm-to-fork products to freshly-caught seafood, The Sandbar is committed to serving the highest quality foods in stellar presentations. During cocktail hour, there are four varieties of hors d’oeuvres to set the stage for an extensive buffet selection that couples can personalize to their own tastes. The Sandbar’s friendly bar staff will keep the cocktails flowing for up to four hours, and celebratory champagne or non-alcoholic toast will capture the festivity of the evening.
