Burroughs Home and Gardens

Naples/Fort Myers



Nestled on 2.45 acres overlooking the Caloosahatchee River in historic downtown Fort Myers, The Burroughs Home & Gardens is the perfect, historic, riverfront venue for your extraordinary wedding celebration. The lush, hidden gardens are kept green and welcoming year-round. A historic grotto, reflecting pool, flower beds, and sparkling fountains create a lavish setting that lends to the venue’s romantic ambience. Pledge your love under mature live oaks in a heartfelt ceremony. Or exchange vows in a waterfront ceremony along the banks of the Caloosahatchee River. The house’s Georgian Colonial Revival architecture with its pine floors and winding grand staircase provide a truly vintage setting for your formal portraits. The celebration continues on the backside of the property with a reception inside the brand new open-air pavilion. Enjoy all the beauty of an outdoor reception with all the amenities of an indoor facility. Eat. Drink. And be married! The event staff will work tirelessly with you on every detail to ensure your special day is nothing short of extraordinary.
