Outdoor Spaces & Wedding Photo Locations

Your dream of capturing incredible wedding photos becomes a reality at the Lightner Museum. The historic venue offers a myriad of stunning indoor and outdoor locations for your wedding portraits.

Some of St. Augustine’s best portrait locations can be found within the Lightner Museum grounds. Couples booked with the Lightner Museum for their wedding have exclusive access to many photo locations not available to the public. With its lush greenery, vibrant blooms, and secluded pathways, the outdoor venue spaces offer a secluded oasis with a sense of intimacy for wedding portraits. A member of the team will also work with you and your photographer to plan the best indoor locations for photos throughout the museum.

*NOTE: Some indoor and outdoor areas may not be available for photos during certain dates or times, depending on the museum schedule.
