Dream Wedding Locations on the Beach

Crystalline Gulf waters, broad stretches of white sand and balmy shorefront breezes make for picture-perfect weddings and unforgettable memories. While the beach’s sunny skies set the tone for a lifetime of happiness, vivid sunsets kick off evenings full of raised glasses, warm wishes and spirited partying. Book your milestone event into one of St. Pete’s marquee waterside resorts and count on every dreamy detail going according to plan.

1 Marvelous Marriage at the Pink Palace: The Don CeSar

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places and named a historical monument by the National Archives, The Don CeSar is as rich in luxury as it is in history. It’s no wonder the hotel hosts over 400 weddings a year—the background could hardly be more stunning. A sweeping staircase and tropical garden overlooking the Gulf provide ideal venues for vows, and a private passage though the sea oats and sand dunes lets a bride make a stunning entrance at water’s edge. For those who prefer indoor festivities, vintage ballrooms allow wedding guests to dance the night away amid Gatsby-era splendor.
