VENDOR SPOTLIGHT

MARIE SELBY BOTANICAL GARDENS

Thank you for considering Marie Selby Botanical Gardens as the site for your wedding. With its beautiful tropical and subtropical plants, serene sunsets over Sarasota Bay, and its proximity to downtown Sarasota, Selby Gardens has become a favorite location for weddings. For brides and grooms, the most difficult decision is not whether to have their wedding at Selby Gardens, but rather where in the Gardens to have the wedding. Weddings may be held anywhere on the grounds. The most popular areas are the Schimmel Wedding Lawn and Pavilion and the Bayside Oak adjacent to the Mansion. Other areas include the Great Room by the Bay and the Mansion Museum. Indoor receptions are generally held in the Great Room by the Bay and the Mansion. The Great Room by the Bay is a 3,600 square-foot room and it has 60-feet of glass windows facing west for spectacular bay and sunset views. It seats approximately 175 persons at round dinner tables or up to 250 people theater style. The Mansion will accommodate 45 guests for a sit down dinner or up to 75 for a cocktail reception.

"Marie Selby Botanical Gardens is a respected center for research and education, as well as a famous showplace that delights more than 130,000 visitors each year. Our visitors see beautiful horticultural displays and learn from our many educational programs. They also take away with them a better understanding and greater appreciation of the natural world and the challenge it faces. Selby’s Museum of Botany & the Arts hosts “Rainforest Masks 2011”, from March 4 to April 15. This annual exhibition celebrating the traditional art of the people of Boruca, Costa Rica, is now in its seventh year and has become the most anticipated display in Selby’s exhibition schedule. Gardens members and visitors return each spring to enjoy an event that relates closely to the Garden’s mission and vision. Covered with images of orchids, bromeliads and a myriad of other tropical plants and animals, the masks inspire the appreciation of the rich, colorful flora and fauna of the artists’ native rainforest."
