New First Coast Bride!

Hello!  My name is Melissa and so excited to be in the start of the planning for our wedding!! We are looking to be married April 6, 2012 and are really wanting a beach wedding.  He asked me to marry him on the beach (between Jax Beach and Ponte Vedra) so we def want to keep the beach theme going. 

Wanted to see if anyone has any suggestions of any places that do beach weddings (ceremonies and receptions would be nice!!) We live here and would proabably make it easier to get married on this coast (even though we are going to Tampa next month for vacay and going to look over there too!)

Thanks for any input!!

    Congrats !! I am a fall bride so won't be of much help but are you looking to actually be married on the beach or just have a beach themed Wedding? That's really pretty. I would have liked that but I like to be different, I know that Beach Themes are popular.

    Knittibell I just sent Hammock Beach a request and wil be setting up a time to drive down and look at it!!!

    Samlam01 I've never been to beaches over there but have heard they are sooooooooo beautiful!! My FI actually has two timeshare properties and one is over there that we are considering using...so might be making a trip that direction too!!!

    We are so confused on what coast to do it on that we are going to visit Tampa/Clearwater at the end of the month..and since we live over here by Jax Beach/Ponte Vedra this coast is covered!!! Can you tell I need help LOL!!!

    A coworker of mine got married on the beach in Ponte Vedra at the Inn and Club but I know its pricey.  Also there is The Reef near Vilano Beach that has beach ceremonies.  The only thing I didn't like about The Reef is the reception is upstairs and I don't believe there is an elevator and we have family memebers who are unable to climb stairs.
