We wanted something beautiful, and clean, and that reminded us of us. We chose Harborside Chapel because it’s the most beautiful ceremony venue I have ever seen. It’s so fresh, white, clean, bright, and airy. They over-deliver, from all the decor they have to even filming our wedding to be shared and for us to have for eternity. I absolutely loved it! We also had marriage counseling, too, which was also a huge bonus.
We used Marry Me Tampa Bay to help us put together a list of potential ceremony and reception venues and found Harborside Chapel. We wanted something elegant, with plenty of natural light; a place where my husband and I could stand out as we said our vows. My dad always wanted me to get married in a church growing up, but we didn’t want to do a traditional church wedding
Harborside Chapel allowed us to get the feeling of that. We loved the natural light in the chapel, and everything was so bright that it made our colors pop. The aesthetic of the chapel was beautiful. It was the only place we visited to see about hosting the ceremony. From the moment we walked in, we knew it was the place.
We loved the service. They provided pre-marital mentors for us, who we absolutely loved! They made our day feel incredibly special.
My husband and I wanted to keep things traditional and we knew we wanted to be married in a chapel, but we truly didn’t have many expectations besides finding something that felt special to us and was indoors due to the variability of Florida weather. It was kind of like buying a house, sometimes when you enter a building you just know it’s the right place.
When we walked through the doors of Harborside Chapel we instantly knew this was the special place where we wanted our big day to happen. Harborside gave us that feeling we had been hoping for, not to mention the chapel is absolutely stunning with its natural lighting and elegant design.
Not only is the chapel gorgeous, but the staff there are so kind and really care about their newlyweds. They truly want to see them succeed. My husband and I got paired with Krystal and Amos Pierre as our coordinator and pastor, respectively. Krystal went out of her way multiple times to make sure our day was perfect, and Amos had incredible words to speak on our big day. My husband and I are so glad we chose Harborside Chapel.
We knew we wanted to get married in a church, so the Harborside Chapel was a perfect option. It was actually the only ceremony space we looked at! We wanted something clean, bright, and simple, and the chapel was exactly that.
After touring Harborside Chapel, we were automatically sold. Since the church built the chapel specifically for weddings, it offered everything we were looking for. The building itself is beautiful, and it offers the perfect bride and groom suites for getting ready and photos. The natural light, simplicity, and somewhat beach vibe are definitely what drew us in!
On top of the beautiful space, everyone we worked and coordinated with was awesome, including our marriage counseling mentors.
We wanted to be married in an intimate chapel setting. We wanted our ceremony to reflect the very serious nature of our commitment to one another. We wanted something intimate that could present our bridal party and our string trio as well as our guests safely and beautifully.
We fell in love with Harborside Chapel the minute we set foot inside. The Chapel is isolated from their main campus and has a beautiful wooded backdrop. Once inside, the neutral setting is flooded with natural light. It is classic and modern, just the way we hoped. Its elegant design, natural light, and neutral colors were a perfect backdrop for our classic theme. Amos, our Pastor, was warm, open, and presided over our wedding with ease and sincerity. They have every couple take marriage mentoring classes leading up to the big day and pair each engaged couple with a married couple from their main church for several weeks beforehand.
We both felt passionate about having a religious ceremony and when looking for a venue wanted it to either be a church or chapel. We also wanted it to be a timeless-looking venue that was beautiful on its own not needing much decoration.
We knew the second we pulled up to Harborside Chapel that this was it! We absolutely loved everything about it. It's a chapel with a beautiful exterior and interior that is exactly what we were looking for. Literally from the second, we walked in to tour from the moment we walked out as husband and wife it was smooth sailing.
Harborside is so much more than just a ceremony venue. When you get married there you get set up with marriage counselors, a coordinator, and an awesome pastor. They actually care about you as individuals as well as a couple and want to set you up for success in your marriage. I am telling you right now, there aren't a lot of venues that do that for complete strangers. On top of all of that, they are very affordable and great people. Ben and I can't say enough wonderful things about Harborside Chapel.
