Book Your Wedding with Historic Shadow Point


About Us

Historic Shadow Point in Key Largo mixes the beauty of a naturally preserved Florida ecosystem with gorgeous seclusion for your waterfront destination wedding. Couples can capture first-look photos with a tropical sunset in the background or among the many trees in the 2.5-acre hardwood forest. Historic Shadow Point’s private beaches and 1920s cottages are surrounded by Largo Sound and offer instant access to the water. Historic Shadow Point’s buildings are among the oldest original buildings still in use today on Key Largo.

Couples follow a natural path from the main house to the dock, where an arbor is in place for ceremonies. The sound of the waves and soft tropical breezes will make it a day to remember.

The four-bedroom main house is equipped with original pine floors from Dade County. The large window in the fully functional kitchen offers guests stunning views of the Historic Shadow Point grounds. The screened porch running the length of the house is a front seat to a breathtaking view of the gardens and Largo Sound.

The two-bedroom guest cottage is equipped with a full kitchen including a deep freezer. It also includes a screened porch for soaking up the Florida sun. Photographs and original artwork from guests who stayed at Historic Shadow Point are scattered throughout every room in the cottage.
