Ask anyone who has been at it awhile, and they’ll tell you the secret to a successful marriage is keeping it real. It doesn’t get more real than The Lower Keys and Big Pine Key. From our pristine waters to the spectacular Great Heron National Wildlife, this kind of natural beauty doesn’t exist anywhere else, and it’s a beautiful spot for your Lower Keys wedding.

The fishing here is outstanding, especially in our huge backcountry. So is the kayaking and canoeing of the inland waters of Watson’s Hammock, an activity that can be enjoyed by your entire wedding party. If you want to find out what a gorgeous beach is really all about, visit Bahia Honda State park, full of camping areas, cabins, marinas and picnic grounds.

The Key Deer National Wildlife Refuge is home to several hundred miniature deer. If you want to see them, the best times are early morning and dusk. Don’t forget your camera – this is an experience you’ll want to capture on film.

Put on your scuba gear and explore the incredible artificial reefs of the Looe Key National Marine Sanctuary, named after the HMS Looe which ran aground here in 1744. Feel free to marvel at the towering reefs that nearly break through the ocean’s surface, but please remember not to touch them. They’re protected for generations to come.
