After 5 Networking Event Recap: Downtown St. Pete Wedding Venue The Poynter Institute

Tampa Bay Wedding Vendor Networking | The Poynter Institute Wedding Venue

We are always excited to learn about new downtown St. Pete wedding venues and were thrilled with The Poynter Institute notified us that they are now offering weddings.

The waterfront St. Petersburg wedding venue sets across from Poynter Park, a gorgeous ceremony spot, and offers floor-to-ceiling windows, skylights and Frank Lloyd Wright architecture, featuring rich mahogany, Italian marble floors and keystone details. We especially love the outdoor cocktail space by the large fountain and couples will appreciate that they can bring in the ow Tampa Bay wedding caterer.

We recently hosted the Marry Me Tampa Bay After 5 networking event, showcasing the wedding venue to top Tampa Bay wedding pros. St. Petersburg wedding florist Wonderland Floral Art and Gift Loft designed the tropical theme to create bright color palette to pop against the rich wood. Coast to Coast Event Rentals provided specialty linens, cocktail tables and dark wood chairs to complement the look.

DJ Cory Barron of Grant Hemond & Associates kept our guests entertained, while St. Petersburg wedding caterer Amici’s Catered Cuisine delivered an amazing spread. They created a refreshing, tropical, signature drink, a watermelon mojito, live action pasta station and endless amounts of appetizers.

St. Petersburg wedding photographer Caroline & Evan Photography captured all of the beautiful details!
