When your wedding plans reach for the sky and you want the moon and stars to follow, then you should consider the Ceremonies In Paradise recommendations in the beautiful city of Sarasota. Known for the “Whitest Sand in the World” and the #1 Rated beach (Siesta Key) by TripAdvisor.com and Dr. Beach, Sarasota has a long history of opulence that goes back to the early 1900s. While millionaires and financial tycoons swarmed to the Florida coasts in the early 1900s, Sarasota was at the forefront for several weathy families who settled here and called the area their home.
Ringling Museum & Ca’Da’Zan Mansion in Sarasota
First was John & Mabel Ringling (of the Ringling Bros & Barnum & Bailey Circus fame) who settled here in 1911 on a 20 acre plot on Sarasota Bay. Today there stands the original mansion Ca’DZan, as well as the Ringling Museum of Art housing over 400 masterpieces of art collected from around the world.
Now you can have your wedding in the opulent style on the courtyards of the Ringling Museum or the marble terraces of Ca’DZan on the Sarasota Bayfront.
