Luxurious Classic Outdoor Wedding | The Concession Golf Club

Nestled amongst the history of Old Florida, parks, and preserves is a secret gem of a wedding venue in Bradenton, Florida, just south of Tampa Bay and north of Sarasota. Known as one of the best private golf courses in the state, The Concession Golf Club boasts a beautifully serene backdrop for luxurious weddings and a stunning indoor ballroom.

Tampa Bay luxury wedding planning team, Parties A’La Carte designed a classic wedding inspiration shoot with a modern twist. Bringing together some of Tampa Bay’s elite wedding vendors, the wedding planners and designers showcased the venue’s timeless look with a color palette of dusty blue, gray, white, and marble, elevating the classic venue for today’s modern couple.

“The Concession Golf Club had recently decided to host weddings! We were very excited to hear this, and we were even more excited when they contacted us to help them create a styled shoot to share the beauty of their spaces,” Jessica Ralph Bova, owner of Parties A’La Carte, shared. “We based our designs and ideas around their different event spaces, which are all so so stunning. We went with two different looks to showcase the space! One of our looks was more neutral modern with gray, white, and marble. The second look was more romantic and elegant with white lace, pinks, and pops of blue! We showed two designs to share the versatility of the space.”

To add memorable design elements, Kate Ryan Event Rentals showcased their newest items to subtly complement the classic and glamorous reception space.

“We love how versatile the venue space is. It is just so stunning on its own that minimal decor is needed to create the most dreamy ceremony and reception space,” Jessica gushed. “The property has so many scenic locations to take your wedding photos that will last a lifetime!”

Tampa Bay wedding videographer Bonnie Newman Creative highlighted an array of beautiful backdrops on this gorgeous property. The bright green setting makes the bride’s beautiful white wedding gown pop against the famous Concession Golf Course.

“Our favorite element of the shoot was the venue itself. Every angle you turn you have such beautiful views. The Concession Golf Club has so much to offer, and it is an incredible venue option to host your rehearsal dinner, bridal brunch, wedding ceremony, wedding reception, and more,” the Parties A’La Carte planner beamed.
