Our wedding planning style is:
‘Creating a Once in a Lifetime Experience, through the Magic of a Beach Wedding'
We love planning 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 personality is:
Fun, Energetic, and Hardworking. We handle the Stress, so our couples don't have to!
What makes our business stand out from other planners is:
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 800+ Weddings in the Tampa Bay Area, Beachside of course!

Gulf Beach Weddings Reviews From Marry Me Tampa Bay Couples:
“Gulf Beach Weddings was extremely knowledgeable about Clearwater Beach. As soon as we met with them, we could tell that they truly cared about helping us plan our big day exactly how we pictured it. The difference between Gulf Beach Weddings and other planning companies is they help you personalize your wedding as opposed to offering pre-made packages you can’t customize. Overall, our experience with Gulf Beach was amazing, and Tracy was absolutely wonderful!” -Stacy and Nate | Elegant Blush Pink and Grey Clearwater Beach Wedding
“Our good friend Rachel works for Gulf Beach Weddings, and we knew as soon as we were engaged and discussing the wedding that they would be the perfect fit. And of course, to have a friend perform our ceremony was priceless. The website was extremely easy to navigate, and we were able to build our perfect wedding theme using their online tools. We worked with the wedding planner and had any and all questions answered quickly. The follow-through and attention to detail were more than we had expected. There are several beautiful locations to choose from. We were able to easily connect with local vendors for our needs. They fit into our budget perfectly. Above all, we had zero stress planning it. We were engaged in July and married in November. It took us about three weeks to plan everything start to finish and then were able to relax, sit back, and wait for our big day to arrive. ” -Heather and Tom | Intimate Treasure Island Destination Wedding
