Gulf Beach WeddingsGulf Beach Weddings

We are a family business and partner with local hotels, restaurants, florists, venues, photographers, caterers and Wedding Vendors to offer a unique one-stop-shop for all of your destination wedding needs. Our primary focus is and has always been to create the most memorable wedding experience ever…perfection on your wedding day!

Picture this: the sun slowly setting behind the lapping ocean waves, a soft salty-breeze, and the pristine white sand in between your toes – with all of your closest friends and family gathered for a Champagne Toast to salute the new couple!

We strive every day to become a better and more attentive company to the needs of the current bride and provide more value and options in the future. New Wedding Packages are always in the works, prompting the questions:

  • How can we improve upon what we already do well?
  • How can we create more value for our brides?
  • What can we do to make their day perfect?

This lead to adding many options and services that we no longer charge for and now include with current wedding packages (Free Chair Cover & Sash, Unity Sand & Blessing Stones, for example).


In 2013, Affordable Banquet was created by the purchase of a Banquet Reception Facility on St. Pete Beach. Now, we are able to offer the wedding + reception to our repertoire. And, can now host wedding receptions at our own private venue for up to 85 guests!

Over the years, our biggest accolade is the vendors we work with day-in and day-out. I know we have Google+, Facebook, and WeddingWire reviews – but these are the unsung heros and, in my opinion, the best in the business. We owe them dearly for the success over the years as many of the pictures, testimonials, reviews, relationships and positive public relations are a result of all of their hard work.

Why GBW?

Over a Decade of Personal Experience (7 Decades if you Add up our Vendors):

Gulf Beach Weddings has performed over 3,000+ ceremonies in the Tampa Bay Area since 2001. It was formally organized in 2006 as and has been performing our Beach Wedding Packages & Ceremonies ever since! We have setup just about anywhere – behind every condo, hotel, resort, beach house, etc. and can speak to hundreds of beach ceremonies at the most remote and unique Gulf Front locations you can imagine! Although, we weren’t the first to create the Beach Wedding, I would argue that we have almost perfected it better than anyone else in the Country. Historically, in order to put your toes in the sand for a wedding ceremony you had to book at a major hotel or resort. Over the years, there have been companies that come and go and many Wedding Planners that were associated with hotels that are now Today, this is not the case – in fact, more couples prefer the affordable pricing, flexible options, simple and non-traditional ceremony


The primary focus for our Beach Locations are wedding sites that rank among the least ventured in the area, however close to all the amenities of the Main Beach areas. These Wedding Sites have been hand selected over the past 5-10 years to provide the highest quality environment that is conducive for a beach ceremony, including: Easy & Private Access, Natural Vegetation / Beach Front Areas with Breathtaking Views, and Epic Entryways for the Bride (Private Boardwalks, Hidden Pathways, etc.). The goal is to produce the best pictures and These locations provide the highest quality environment for your Beach Wedding. Certain areas require permits however, this does not mean they are nicer than some of our Public Access areas and

Typically, the areas located on the edges of a Public Stretch of beach are often the least crowded, provide the perfect atmosphere, boardwalk / sea oat backdrop, and large nearby parking lots to accommodate the perfect sunset ceremony. Please see our ‘Beach Rankings’ below…


At Gulf Beach Weddings, we have created Wedding Packages that, over the years, were designed to have all the major elements covered (Setup / Takedown, Officiate Service Included, Portable PA System, Arch & Decorations, Chairs, etc.) that is All-Inclusive in nature with the added benefit of customizing the different variables to taste. For example, we offer over 25 Choices of Chair Sash Colors, 6 Different Flower Choices for Decorations, 4 Different Aisle Way Choices, 2 Bamboo Arches – that’s over 1,196 permutations! Therefore, you have the flexibility to customize the different features all the while keeping things simple and elegant on your wedding day! Now, if we add in Custom Music, Ceremony Choice & Vows, etc. you truly have a Unique, one-of-a-kind Beach Wedding Ceremony that has been hand selected to fit your taste and style!

Private Ownership & Reception Facility:

Because we are privately held and own our Reception Facility on St Pete Beach – the only to do so that I know of! This gives us greater flexibility in terms of what vendors we use, use of the property, and customization and catering choices that best suit our couples needs. Our 2,400 SF Reception Facility with its $50K build-out is the nicest on the West Coast and the perfect location for a medium sized reception 20-85 guests. Purchased in June of 2013, the remodel took nearly a year to complete – however now we are poised to best serve today & tomorrows brides in Style!

Vendor Relationships:

Our Vendor relationships have been cultivated over years of experience and It has been our belief from the beginning to not profit from our vendors. Our recommended vendors have been vetted over years of experience. On average, we have worked with each of our vendors for 3+ years. These are also the best source of reference if you have specific questions as to our credibility and tenure on Florida’s Gulf Beaches!
