Here in Florida we are known for our beach weddings, and for good reason. We have the most beautiful beaches in the world. The warm salty breeze, sand between your toes, throwing mini beach balls instead of confetti or bubbles, it's amazing! But there's more to Tampa Bay than beaches. If you're looking for rustic, we've got it. You want modern? I know just the spot! You're looking for a classic and historic location? You guessed it, we have it!
With a huge amount of amazing spots to choose from, I made a list of my top 3 wedding venues in the area that are my favorite places to photograph in or around the Tampa Bay Area.
Number three: MIRROR LAKE LYCEUM
This beautiful spot is brimming with breath-taking architecture that you expect to see in downtown St. Pete. There are so many unique characteristics here that provide you with the perfect setting for your wedding images. If you want classically beautiful, historic with some quirky charm, you've got to see Mirror Lake Lyceum!
Another fabulous venue in downtown St. Pete is Nova 535. This is a perfect spot whether you want an indoor wedding ceremony, or an outside one. It's a beautiful, modern brick building that has it's share of some 1920's charm. Nothing beats a beautiful wedding dress against a brick wall!
I ventured out of St. Pete for top pick and it's worth the trek to Dover, FL. If you are looking for a fairy tale wedding, this is it. Their rustic carriage house stable is transformed into a reception fit for Cinderella. They have two beautiful options to choose from, Carriage House Stable or French Country Inn. The cottage where you get ready is what a photographers dreams are made of.
