Treasure Island Beach

Treasure Island is also one of our favorite choices for beach weddings and perfect for all couples. Sunset Beach is located in a residential area, and has a great rock jetty for photo opts. Also there are no hotels to crowd the beach at our Sunset Beach wedding site. It does not have public vendors, renting chairs and umbrellas, to restrict the beach views or its amazing sunsets. Sunset Vista is one of our favorite beach-front hotels for weddings. You must stay at Sunset Vista’s Beach-Front Resort to have your beach wedding, commitment ceremony, vow renewal or elopement wedding here. The best reception location on Treasure Island is the Lions Club Beach Hall, located directly on the beach. It is perfect for a beach front wedding site and reception location on the beach.

Clearwater Beach

Clearwater Beach has long been known world-wide for it’s white powder sand and tropical warm weather. We have 3 locations in Clearwater Beach we use as our wedding sites. There are so many activities to take part in; along with the abundance of restaurants and nightlife, Clearwater Beach Florida can be a great place for a young couple or a family with children to celebrate their wedding, vow renewal, commitment ceremony or elopement. Clearwater Beach is very wide and tends to be busy by the shoreline. It is best to have the wedding closer to the beach entrance and beautiful sand dunes. Our wedding photographer can take you to the shoreline afterwards for more photos by the water. Morning wedding ceremonies (prior to 10am) or 1 to 2 hours prior to sunset are the best on the weekends. Midweek weddings are also great at our Clearwater Beach wedding site location.

Indian Rocks Beach

Indian Rocks Beach, Florida is a quaint layed back location for your wedding. There are no big hotels on the beach or vendors with chairs and umbellas. Now Indian Rocks Beach is a thriving community that has maintained most of its original character, and supports a lively mixture of recreational activities. From its nature preserve, to its parks, to its sandy shores, you’ll find a smile on every face, and a warm Florida welcome with everyone you meet. Compared to Clearwater Beach, Indian Rocks Beach feels more relaxing and stress free. No wedding permits are required for weddings under fifty guests at Indian Rocks Beach, which should be taken into consideration for budget minded brides.

Redington Beach

Redington Beach is mainly a residential and condo resort community. It has a few public access points for your beach wedding, vow renewal, elopement or commitment ceremony. Located between Clearwater Beach and St. Pete Beach, Redington Beach’s central location makes it convenient to much of the area’s best reception locations and hotels. Redington Beach has limited parking, so smaller weddings are suggested. You and your guests can catch a deep sea fishing charter at Hubbard’s Marina for a great day on the water. Don’t forget a hat and sun tan lotion!

Madeira beach is located between Clearwater Beach and St. Pete beach. John’s Pass Village is a popular spot and is a fun place to visit, with its unique shopping district which overlooks John’s Pass.

Tampa Bay Locations

Our Tampa Beach locations are designed for couples located in Hillsborough County or flying into Tampa International Airport (TIA) who may not have time to make the trip to one of the Gulf Beach Locations for their wedding. Not quite as nice as the beaches located in Pinellas County, you will still be able to have your beach dream wedding, vow renewal or commitment ceremony with your feet in the sand. A paid beach permit is required for these locations. As a registered provider with the parks department, we will obtain a beach wedding permit for you.
