Outdoor Wedding Ceremony Set Up at Tampa Garden Club

Timeless Black and White New Year’s Eve Wedding | Tampa Garden Club

Our original guest count was 250, so it was important that we found a venue that could hold that amount. Additionally, we wanted somewhere that allowed us to bring in our own alcohol.

We specifically chose Tampa Garden Club because it could accommodate our large guest count, they allowed us to bring in our own alcohol, and it was in a great centralized location for all our family and friends Their service was amazing! It offers a blank canvas, with endless possibilities when it comes to decorating.

I used Marry Me Tampa Bay to get a good idea of how other brides decorated the space and to see what vendors had worked there before. Bridget, the coordinator, answered all of our questions and helped us immensely through the planning process.

Vibrant Fuchsia and Orange South Tampa Wedding | Tampa Garden Club

We primarily wanted a venue that gave us the freedom to use outside vendors and not restrict us to their preferred vendors' list.

We fell in love with the view and location of Tampa Garden Club. Being able to do our ceremony out in the garden and reception inside the ballroom was also what sold us. Bridget was so wonderful throughout the whole process. We booked our venue before we knew of COVID, and she was so transparent with us regarding their policies and what they were doing to stay compliant with the city’s COVID mandates.
