It’s not a secret that the Lighthouse is one of the most iconic landmarks in St. Augustine and has been for over 140 years! But did you know that the striped Tower, Keepers’ House, and Live Oaks can also be a part of your special day?
Some of our visitors have found creative ways to incorporate the unique site into their engagements and ceremonies. Recently, I received a phone call from a museum member who wanted to “pop the question” on the top of the Lighthouse Tower. He came to me with a plan, and we were able to make it a reality! While the two climbed the Lighthouse Tower, the sister carefully placed letters at the base that said “Marry Me Victoria”.
After they made it to the top, Victoria looked down to see the proposal sprawled at the base.
And Victoria said “YES”!
In addition to proposals, we also host ceremonies. We have our ceremonies on the front lawn of the Keepers’ House, under the twisted Live Oaks.
Depending on the time of year, the Keepers’ House and grounds may be decorated for the Christmas holiday season.
The price starts at $600 and increases depending on the number of guests. Admission is included for each guest after the ceremony. If a Lighthouse wedding is in your future, please contact Loni Wellman, Volunteer & Events Manager at 904-829-0745 ext 213 or at LWellman@staugustinelighthouse.org.
