You Don’t Have to Spend Your Life Savings

Large scale weddings aren’t always the best option for everyone. On average, Florida weddings can cost over $30,000. However, we believe that you should still be able to have a beautiful ceremony, special memories and gorgeous photos to share with everyone without a hefty price tag. Relax and let us handle all of the details! Your day will be picture perfect.

Accommodations That Will Make You Never Want to Leave

There’s a reason that so many people love to vacation in Florida – it’s like paradise! Historic hotels, seaside resorts and vacation homes are just a few of the lodging spaces available on the Gulf Coast. Enjoy some of the most delicious seafood dishes and traditional Southern favorites with an incredible view. You’ll find locally-grown produce and fresh-caught options from all fine dining and waterfront eateries in the area. The best part? Your honeymoon starts as soon as you say “I Do”! Grab your honey and hit the beach.

Pleasant Weather for all of Your Plans

After all, it is called the Sunshine State! Florida’s year-round sunny weather makes it an easy destination for planning elopements. Bask in the sunshine during the spring and early autumn, or enjoy soothing temperatures throughout the winter while still getting a dose of Vitamin D. Some of our favorite times of year for planning Tampa Bay elopements are November-May to avoid high humidity and summer storms.
