Welcome to Gulf Beach Weddings, the industry-leading Destination Beach Wedding company which focuses on simple & affordable, yet elegant ceremonies in the Tampa Bay Area. Since 2011, we have had the pleasure to officiate, coordinate, photograph, and organize over 9,500+ Weddings from Clearwater Beach to Siesta Key and Pensacola to Panama City Beach. Our niche is the 2-100 guest beach wedding ceremony or vow renewal with pre-designed Wedding Packages, customized to fit every need! Our Vision: Joy through Weddings

Gulf Beach Weddings currently services 4 out of TripAdvisor’s Top 25 nationally recognized beaches in 2023. In comparison, Florida currently holds 10 of the Top 25 spots – that’s 40% of the entire poll for the United States! Our exclusive beach locations have been hand-selected over the years to provide the most beautiful and convenient wedding sites for a destination wedding!

We are a family business and partner with local hotels, restaurants, florists, venues, photographers, caterers, and Wedding Vendors to offer a unique one-stop-shop for all of your destination wedding needs. Our primary focus is and has always been to create the most memorable wedding experience ever…perfection on your wedding day!

What We Love About Gulf Beach Weddings




We Love Weddings Because…

We strive every day to become a better and more attentive company to the needs of the current bride and provide more value and options in the future. New Wedding Packages are always in the works, prompting the questions:

Leave the Beach & Immediate Area in a Better Condition than we found it!
How can we improve upon what we already do well?
We are an advocate for the ‘Budget Minded’ couple who want exceptional service at an affordable price. Cultivating relationships with Wedding Vendors that do the same.
How can we create more value for our brides?
What can we do to make their day perfect? Is there a little something extra we can personally do?
How can we become Stewards of not only this Couple’s Special Day, however, the communities in which we serve and particularly the Beaches & Property in which Weddings are conducted.
This lead to adding many options and services that we no longer charge for and now include with current wedding packages (Free Chair Cover & Sash, Unity Sand & Blessing Stones, for example).

Our Wedding Style

‘We Create a Once in a Lifetime Experience, through the Magic of a Beach Wedding’

Our Personality

Fun, Energetic, and Hardworking. We handle the Stress, so our couples don’t have to!

What Inspired Us to Start Our Business

Majoring in Real Estate and Entrepreneurship in the College of Business at FSU, I always knew one day I would have my own business (however big or small it may be). In every job throughout my career: Lawn Mowing Service, Lollipop/Candy at Middle School, Publix, Bonefish Grill in College, and Commercial Real Estate at CBRE out of College for the first 7 years of my career – I always wanted to be incentivized. We truly care about our couples and their families. We are a faith based business and leverage this culture to deliver the ultimate customer experience on their Big Day!

What Makes Our Business Stand Out

We add the most value! Our Affordable Wedding Packages are pre-designed based on the number of guests you anticipate having. We own our Reception Hall on St Pete Beach and Warehouse/Office in Downtown St Pete. Each year we service over 600+ Weddings in the Tampa Bay Area, and 250+ Weddings in the Panhandle of Florida, Beachside of course!

Our Beach WeddingStudio proprietary service marked software allows couples to interactively create their very own dream beach wedding (and see it real-time!). The background images are taken at the specific locations mentioned, pricing is built-in, but more importantly, offers 8,000+ iterations to truly allow for a personalized and custom experience. This feature alone gives you an immediate visual with your custom colors, decor, aisleway, seating, and location all in one convenient place.

Meet Brandon
One thing most couples would be surprised to know is:

I didn’t get married until age 35…at that time the company had performed something like 7,200+ weddings. Better late than never, she’s the perfect fit so it was worth the wait!

Non-wedding Passions:

I am an Commercial Pilot with Instrument Rating and enjoy flying when time and finances permit. Also enjoy hiking, golfing, boating, and anything outdoors!

Reviews from Marry Me Tampa Bay Couples

Marry Me Tampa Bay curates the below reviews from real couples whom we’ve personally interviewed. As Tampa Bay’s most trusted wedding planning resource, these reviews are 100% accurate and aren’t created by fake accounts.

  • We wanted someone who could provide everything! We live in the Midwest, so when planning a wedding from across the country, it was important to have someone who could provide everything: the coordinator, arbor, chairs, beach permits, officiant, marriage license, etc. After the initial call, we got a really good vibe, and they were very helpful.

    Gulf Beach Weddings laid out the timeline and were extremely thorough, so we trusted our gut and booked them! They also provided recommendations for reception venues on Anna Maria Island.
