We encourage you to enjoy the breathtaking tropical plants and landscapes, historic Mansion, and stunning backdrop of our Bayfront location. Whether you seek a simple garden wedding or a grand gala under the stars, you can find your perfect one-of-a-kind setting here. Selby Gardens offers the added value of its close proximity to downtown Sarasota.

Weddings may be held in a variety of settings throughout the Gardens. The most popular locations are the Schimmel Wedding Lawn and Pavilion, the Gazebo, the Banyan Grove, and The Wedding Oak adjacent to the Christy Payne Mansion. Additional areas that lend themselves to nuptial celebrations are the Great Room by the Bay and indoors or outdoors at the Christy Payne Mansion.
