In order to become the ideal wedding destination in South Florida’s Bradenton Beach, Tortuga Inn Beach Resort looked to ShadeFX for that extra bit of magic.

Inspired by the pure sand and clear water off the Gulf of Mexico, Tortuga Inn Resort built an outdoor space steps from the ocean with all the amenities of a world-class resort. In a space accommodating anywhere from 30 to 450 guests, it was imperative that each and every patron would always feel comfortable and at ease.

Nine manual and rope operated retractable canopies (six undersides and three topsides) with Weblon waterproof and fire retardant fabric were installed. This arrangement directs rain from the three middle topside canopies onto the six outside underside canopies, past the pergola frame to keep guests dry.
