Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life. On the beautiful beach of Fort Zachary Taylor State Park you'll create memories to cherish for a lifetime.

Known around the world as Key West's best beach, Fort Zachary Taylor is a 54 acre park offering 5 reservable sites for a wedding ceremonies by the water, on the beach, or in the historic Fortress and 2 exclusive private options for receptions.

Couples have the choice of hosting their wedding ceremony, within 2 hour time blocks throughout the day.  Ceremony sites are roped off and reserved signs put in place for the duration of the chosen time block.

R1- The Driftwood is located on the west side of the park on the Key West Shipping Channel. A great place during the day with shade under the Chikee Hut and a wonderful place to watch the sunset 

R2- The Point  Among locals referred to as “The Point”, this spot is located on the west side of the Park where the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico combine. R2 offers fabulous sunset views year round. Located at the entry of the Key West Shipping channel R2 is always an active site with sunset boats sailing by, fishing boats coming and going and an occasional cruise ship passing, it is a breathtaking experience.

R3-The Beachfront is situated on the Southwest part of the beach. A great place to wiggle your toes in the sand and say "I do."

R4- Also referred to as “The East Beach,” R4 is nestled on white sand and tropical vegetation on the east side of the Park. The R4 site is in the midst of Jamaican palms and lush sea grapes, which creates a secluded atmosphere for small or large groups.

If you are looking to host both a ceremony and reception we have the perfect location! 

All receptions start at sunset and our agreements are based on 4 hours (plus 2 hour ceremony).  Host your ceremony with your toes in the sand right before the sun goes down. After the ceremony everyone can walk down the beach for your private reception. The Park officially closes to the public at sunset, at that time the venue becomes exclusive to your party.  The deck is the perfect spot for cocktail hour and dancing.  Your dinner tables will be set up in the sand in the midst of beautiful vegetation.  To create the perfect ambiance with tiki torches to lead the way a fire pit is set up on the main beach area beyond your dinner tables.  Imagine.... dancing under a canopy of stars on the beach in Key West surrounded by only your friends and family!   

Find everything you need to make your dream wedding come true.

Loved working with Kirsten! She is truly talented and so easy to work with. We planned our wedding from Germany so communication was only through email. SO you would think that would make things difficult but not in the slightest. There were a lot of emails but she always answered quickly. She took care of everything. Seriously everything. The vendors, the set up. All we did was drop off our extra decorations that we wanted to use the day before and Kirsten and her team set everything up perfectly. I was stress free and very relaxed our wedding day because I trusted Kirsten completely. I don't think ANYTHING went wrong...but that's probably because she never let me know =)...which is great. We had our ceremony at the point...what is not to like? The sunset, ocean, and crashing waves behind you while you're saying your vows is just so romantic. It was stunning. We had our reception in the Fort and it was magical. I wish I could live that day over and over again. It was beyond what I could have imagined it to be and so perfect, and that is largely due to Kirsten being so awesome and accommodating!

This truly is Key West's Best Beach. I could not imagine a more picturesque setting and venue for our ceremony. The backdrop created by all the colors during sunset was breathtaking. I strongly recommend a combination of the point and fortress for the ceremony and reception respectively. Our coordinator, Kirsten, did an absolutely amazing job in making our dream a reality. Worth every penny for the full service coordination. We were able to create for our guests a once in a lifetime experience full of joy and beauty. If you are looking to marry in Key West, look no further.

Kirsten at Fort Zachary Taylor was incredible. We booked the Point for our ceremony location and the Fortress for the reception. The ceremony was breathtaking. The lighting, location, and understated elegance were exactly what I envisioned. The Fortress was the perfect reception location for my husband and I, who both love American History. Our guests were wowed by the unique set up. The day before the event, I dropped a few small decorations, table numbers, and hand selected details off with Kirsten and she took care of the rest. She brought my wedding vision to life. I had nothing to worry about on the day of my wedding other than getting on the Key West Trolley! Further, she helped me select vendors and made sure I had everything covered; such as extra lighting and a dance floor. Kirsten was an integral part of what made my day so perfect, and I highly recommend booking the full service wedding coordination. Kirsten was so thoughtful-- she even had my husband and I's meals packed and sent in a to-go container for us since we did not have time to eat at the reception. Seriously, she's the best.

Hands down I would recommend!! The experience my wife and I experienced was far more that we expected. Kirsten wasn’t just a wedding planner at the end, she made you feel like family. Everything she did she made sure she did it at her personal best. If you want a Beautiful Unforgettable wedding, this is it!!

My fiance and I were married at Fort Zachary in November and hired Kirsten as our wedding planner. She is absolutely amazing! Not only did she take care of every detail, even finding the gold forks I had to have, she made sure each and every aspect of our day was perfect and ran smoothly. Kirsten made planning a destination wedding enjoyable and stress free!

I cannot begin to express how happy I was with EVERYTHING!!! Kirstin was the best! I booked this destination wedding location, site unseen. We decided to book a last minute trip down a couple months before the wedding and WOW. Venue was amazing and staff were more than accommodating. I think I honestly called Kirstin like once a week (poor thing) and she always took my call or called me/emailed me right back! The patience of a GOD! When we came down for the wedding, she literally thought of everything. I was nervous about missing things or forgetting things I didnt even think of yet; but she had it all figured out before I could even think of it!!!! The day of the wedding we had rain but I gave her control of the decision on whether to move the reception to the fort or keep at the beach, she advised to move to the fort and it was even better than I thought it would be! I dont think I can say enough about her and her staff. PERFECTION!!!! Worth every penny and would do it all again, with no changes (except I would try to be on time, haha)

This venue for my ceremony and reception was like a dream come true. The view was stunning, the timing was perfect and the service was impeccable. If you're planning from out of town, like I did, rest assured that your request will be heard and your wedding executed beyond what you could have imagined. No need for elaborate decorations with such a beautiful background. I highly recommend Ft. Zachary Taylor for the perfect wedding place.

Kirsten Corpion was amazing and so helpful to us for our event. We decided pretty quickly to have the wedding in Key West at Fort Zachary Taylor. She helped direct us to Vendors and be sure to keep everything moving so that it all happened in a very short time. The Venue was fabulous!!! So beautiful and so convenient for all everyone.

When we first chose to have our wedding in Key West, Ft Zachary was already one of the locations we were excited to see. Once we actually saw it in person it was an easy decision for both the ceremony and reception venue. For our ceremony we chose "The Point" location. It was a beautiful space right on the water that provided us with amazing photos of the ceremony. The reception was located by the beach cafe. The way that the area was setup was absolutely beautiful. The space also features a fire pit and a beer boat that everyone at the party loved. I couldn't recommend this place enough for people looking to get married in Key West. To top it all off the event manager Kirsten Corpion is amazing at her job. For our wedding we hired her as our wedding planner to help us find all our vendors and deal with the contracts. She seems to know everyone in town and had great recommendations. For couples looking for a nice outdoor venue in Key West this is definitely the spot and I highly recommend having Kirsten as your wedding planner.

The venue was perfect for our ceremony. So helpful? Kirsten and the staff were there for us from the beginning stages to the champagne toast after our ceremony on the beach.
