three wedding venues in tampa

Tampa is a beautiful city with so many gorgeous spots for weddings and elopements. You can have the city vibe, the beach vibe, the countryside vibe...all within 45min of each other. I think it has such great potential for creating the wedding of your dreams. I have been seeing so many perfect places that I thought I would write about it to give you some idea of the venues you can go for when planning your perfect wedding day.

The Don CeSar

From the moment I saw this hotel I knew it was a special one, most likely because I am in love with the pink color of their hotel. The Don CeSar is located in St. Pete Beach, Florida on the sugary-white sand with the Gulf of Mexico. You can have your wedding with that gorgeous sand and water as your backdrop, or the pink hued courtyard with a ceremony on the stairs and finish the night celebrating in a luxurious ballroom with stunning water views. It has over 38,000 square feet of flexible event space, so you can accommodate weddings from intimate elopements for ten to grand affairs for 250 guests. You and your guests can also enjoy all the amenities of a full-service beach resort, including a spa, salon, world-class dining, and spacious accommodations.

The Oxford Exchange

Give me a venue with a library and amazing food included and I'm sold, then add into it a historic aspect and I am in venue heaven. Full of charm, the Oxford Exchange provides a unique and sophisticated backdrop for your Tampa wedding. This venue is very versatile which I love. It combines a bookstore, coffeehouse, and event space, offering a delightful ambience for an intimate ceremony or reception. I've had both an elopement here and a full on wedding styled and both options create their own ambiance and vibe. Exchange vows surrounded by towering bookshelves, or celebrate under the twinkling lights of the courtyard. One of the cool things about The Oxford Exchange is that even though it is not a hotel it boasts an in-house culinary team who will craft a personalized menu to match your vision, from a gourmet brunch to a passed hors d'oeuvres reception. The space can fit up to 350 guests and it is beautiful as well, with its checkered tiles and that vintage vibe that comes with the wood accents. I also love that they have all this art spread around the spaces.

The Vinoy St Pete Resort

From the first glance at this gorgeous resort you can tell it's an amazing property and it truly makes you feel as if you are looking at an Italian Villa. Located in St. Petersburg, Florida it offers a wedding venue brimming with elegance and options. Whether you envision a grand celebration or a romantic elopement, they have over 62,000 square feet of flexible space. Exchange vows in the magical Tea Garden with its picturesque fountain. If you want a larger and more luxurious ceremony, the Esplanade provides breathtaking bay views, creating a magical backdrop for your "I do's." The Vinoy's meticulously designed ballrooms, like the grand Palm Court, offer a sophisticated setting for receptions, accommodating hundreds of guests. It truly is a perfect property for luxury weddings with lots of flair and charm to create anything you imagine.
