Our Wedding Photographers in Clearwater Weddings at Kapok Special Events Center, Safety Harbor Spa, Reba Sutton White Chapel, Harborside Chapel, and more
Clearwater is known for its beaches, however, our photographers in Clearwater love some of the most elegant venues away from the coastline. On this page we feature the sounding communities of Clearwater, including Palm Harbor, Safety Harbor, Dunedin, and Pinellas Park. Check out these amazing Clearwater Area venues.
If you want amazing European style wedding photography, it is hard to find a better venue for Weddings or Quinceañeras than the Kapok Special Events Center. The courtyard of the Kapok has Greek and Old Roman Style statues with a a grand waterfall and a huge water fountain that creates a natural background for photos. The inside of the Kapok Special Events Center is an elegant ballroom with a grand staircase. The Kapok has always been on of Clearwater’s most popular venue, but has just recently been renovated to make it even more spectacular. Our uplighting will light up the pillars in the front of the ballroom to create a magical atmosphere.
Another popular wedding venue, vacation destination, and historical landmark is the famous Safety Harbor Resort & Spa. The Four Seasons Ballroom is our favorite wedding location for uplighting, as we can light up the pillars throughout the room. History Hall is typically the place for the cocktail hour, but also is nice area for wedding photos with its stylish chairs and piano. The Athena Ballroom and Baranoff Theatre are two other options for receptions at Safety Harbor Spa. The waterfalls on the back side of the property are great for pictures in the middle of the day because there is plenty of shade. When the outside light is softer (near sunset), we like to do the portraits in the front waterfall area near the front entrance. Our photographers in Clearwater have shot at all the ceremony sites at Safety Harbor Spa, therefore, we can give you good advice about this great Clearwater wedding venue.
Clearwater has 2 very popular quaint wedding chapels. The more vintage style is the White Chapel & Harbor Hall (formerly known as Reba Sutton White Chapel), maintained by the Parks and Recreation Department. This little 1920s era chapel has beautiful stained glass windows and a wedding bell which can be rung by bride and groom after the ceremony. A big advantage with this location is it also has an adjacent building reception hall with a large dance floor which can hold a moderate size wedding.
The new Harborside Chapel is located in Safety Harbor and operated by Harborside Christian Church. This chapel is very impressive. The inside is very similiar to Disney World’s Wedding Chapel, in fact I would say it is even better. It has a circular front with big bay windows, like Disney World’s Chapel, however unlike Disney’s Chapel there is not a back lighting issue because of the nice greenery on the outside of the windows which make this ideal for photography. This along with the wood styled earth-toned floors has a real look of elegance. The bridal room is very impressive which a huge full body mirror that is great for creative photography. The Harborside Chapel also has areas on the outside that make for a great background. Check out our Little Book below from the wedding at Harborside Chapel.
Feather Sound Country Club is located on the northern border of Clearwater near St Petersburg City Limits. This is a ideal Country Club for wedding photography and video. The lake, rolling greens, and trees with the setting sun make for a very picture esque surrounding. The newly earth-toned paved ceremony area is ideal. It is very convenient for out of town guests, located within 3 miles of St Petersburg-Clearwater Airport and just over the Howard Franklin Bridge from Tampa. The ballroom can easily fit 250 guests with a an open air veranda, with a nice veranda for the cocktail hour, overlooking the lush fairways & lake.
If you like natural scenery in your wedding photography there is Philippe Park & the Florida Botanical Gardens. Philippe Park sits on the bay, on the northern border of Safety Harbor. This beautiful rustic park has brick lined walking paths and offer great outdoor scenery for wedding photography. The Florida Botanical Gardens in Largo provides a beautiful butterfly garden for ceremonies. The reception can be outdoors in a beautiful courtyard or indoors in the Magnolia Building. The video below shows highlights from a wedding at the Florida Botanical Gardens. On the south-western corner of Florida Botanical Gardens is Heritage Village, a historical area with buildings from the 19th Century.
