Here in the Bradenton Area, we know a thing or two about weddings. Beach weddings are incredibly popular and lots of brides flock to the sunshine state to get married on our sugar white sand beaches on the Gulf of Mexico. For those looking for something even more unique, we have you covered. Get married among the orange groves at Mixon Fruit Farms!

Mixon Fruit Farms, voted Florida’s #1 Grove Destination, is the ideal spot for your outdoor Florida wedding! This sweet spot has everything you need to tie the knot. You can have your ceremony in the gazebo, with a beautiful landscaped Koi pond and rock waterfall as your backdrop. The smell of sweet orange blossoms float through the air. Their covered pavilion is the perfect reception site only steps away. Even more picture-perfect, they recently renovated a house on the property with a rustic barn feel that is a great place to get ready and take your pre-pictures. Their onsite coordinators will help you with all the details to plan a night you will never forget.

After you tie your nuptials, its honeymoon time! No honeymoon would be complete without relaxing and unwinding with your special someone. Only twenty minutes from Mixon Fruit Farms, Anna Maria Island is honeymoon paradise. The tropical barrier island is seven miles long, boasting sugar white sand beaches, picturesque sunsets over the Gulf of Mexico and incredibly fresh, flavorful seafood. Their tropical cocktails aren’t bad either. Spend your honeymoon snorkeling and jet skiing in the crystal clear waters, on a dolphin watching tour, boutique shopping or just laying around soaking up rays.

A Paradise Vacation Rentals offers you the perfect honeymoon oasis. Whether you are looking for accommodations on the beach, away from it all or near the action, their homes, condos and cottages are sure to delight! With many options located directly on the beach, you can wake up to white sands and rolling waves each morning. Our personal honeymoon favorite? Anna Maria Island Club 45
