I grew up going to this beach, so it has always been a family weekend hangout place for me. There is an option to reserve the lighthouse and have your ceremony there. There are also two restaurants nearby for catering. I chose to not reserve the lighthouse and instead reserved a pavilion (D18) for the purpose of gathering, and ended up having my ceremony performed at the fishing pier instead of the on the sand so my grandparents wouldn't have too difficult of a time walking to the ceremony location, which originally was on the sand just north of the lighthouse. Also because we didn't have a Special Event Reservation, only a pavilion reservation, each car had to pay the $8 entrance fee.

The rangers were very courteous, and allowed us to do the ceremony wherever we wanted as long as we understood that it was open to all. I didn't mind the onlookers and strangers taking pictures of our ceremony, and very much enjoyed sharing our special event with those who gave us best wishes.

Great advise: the sunset on a clear day from the pier closest to Pavilion D18 is perfect! Very romantic and it was all very special.

We were very fortunate, our wedding turned out amazing and it was in no small part due to the contributions of all of our vendors. We planned most of the wedding ourselves and with all of the nightmare stories you here about problems with vendors, we were worried especially having never dealt with any of this before. But we took our time and met with several vendor for each of the services we needed. We had our wedding at the Lighthouse on Key Biscayne and the reception at the Lighthouse Cafe (owner was amazing, see review). The lighthouse itself is an amazing venue, our ceremony was at sunset and the photographs I have seen are fantastic. The head of the park Sean Allen is great and easy to deal with. The only draw backs are that it is not a traditional ceremony venue, so you need to be very specific about your set up requirements and make sure they can/will be accomodated. One ranger in particular was quite the stickler and we had not arranged for late hours for our rehearsal, which took 10 minutes, but he was not going to let us in (it was our fault for not scheduling). Same ranger was kind of an ass the day of the wedding and was giving many of our vendor issues about setting up. This probably all could have been cleared up ahead of time with better planning by us (so I don't entirely fault the park, except the one ranger who was rude and unaccomodating). However, the venue itself is unbelievable and IMO a very original location.

The park is GORGEOUS!! The view of Miami and the ocean is amazing. The only trouble is that at Florida state parks, alcohol is not permitted. The only other concern is that if you need electricity the wattage is not enough for DJ equipment.
