“We chose The Godfrey Hotel and Cabanas Tampa because we had some pretty special memories there. The best part about The Godfrey is that everything is in one place. Once we viewed their packages, we were sold. To get married there just added icing to the cake.” -Stephanie and Bill | Navy, Blue, Gray, and Blush Pink Waterfront Tampa Wedding

“The pier is absolutely stunning at The Godfrey, and it had the perfect brunch vibe. We knew the venue would be super convenient for all of our out-of-town guests, and we loved all the waterfront views! The staff was wonderful to work with.” -Ilana and Eric | Waterfront Citrus Themed Brunch Wedding
