Variety of Wedding Venues in Tampa Bay

July 29, 2012 8:42 pm Published by

We are blessed to be operating a Wedding Photography Business in Tampa, where there is so much variety.   As I looked back over the last couple of months, I thought about the different settings I was able to do a wedding at.   A couple of weeks ago we shot at the historic boutique style inn, The Don Vincente in Ybor City which gives you great nostalgic looking photos,  and a walk down 9th avenue with brick roads & buildings, a photographer is like a “kid in a candy store”.   How about the Italian Renaissance architecture of the Ringling Museum Grand Courtyard in Sarasota.   Last week it was the Greek/ Old Roman atmosphere of the Kapok Gardens & Pavilion in Clearwater.   If you just want a great view of the bay, and a more intimate rustic atmosphere, great food, theres the always popular Rusty Pelican.     Talking about a great view, there is no better view of the beach than from St Pete Beach’s Grand Plaza Presidential Room over looking the Gulf and speaking of  great food, theres no better than The Black Palm Latin Restaurant in Pass-a-Grille.    Do you like a more contemporary look; Downtown Tampa has the Marriott Waterside, the 20 story glass elevator at the Embassy Suites, or the great night time shots of Tampa from the Westin Harbour Island Hotel, no wonder the Republican National Convention chose Tampa.   So enough of my rambling, If you are planning on getting married in the Tampa Area and have not decided on a venue yet, we wanted to help you out a little bit by showing you videos and photos from a listing of over 40 venues in the Tampa Bay Area.  We are very familiar with these venues, so we can answer questions or give you tips about any of these locations.
