Romantic Terracotta Fall Wedding | Tampa Garden Club

We loved the idea of being close to the water in a central part of Tampa. We also were looking for a space that could be intimate but also accommodate 200 invited guests.

The Tampa Garden Club was a perfect fit for us with regard to the location on Bayshore Boulevard. We gravitated toward it for the beautiful views of the water from the back porch (perfect for photos), the reception hall was a blank canvas that we could make our own, and the garden area was perfect for a November cocktail outside. We also loved the rich history that the venue has as a staple landmark in the community. It was fun to learn that my mom had attended weddings at the club when she was our age!

The event coordinator, Bridget, is spectacular. She was a breeze to communicate with throughout planning, especially for the day of the wedding details. We could tell that Bridget was passionate about the venue as she was very knowledgeable about the space along with variations of the potential setups. We can't recommend it enough!

Classic Black and White Wedding | Tampa Garden Club

We looked for a wedding venue that not only had great reviews but somewhere that had an open floor plan, a clean slate, indoor and outdoor ceremony potential, and was somewhere near the water.

We chose Tampa Garden Club because of the possibility of having an outdoor ceremony in their garden space and an indoor reception, which included views of the bay through their tall glass windows. Their service was great and very helpful, even when we had a million questions.

Romantic Blush and Cream Fall Wedding | Tampa Garden Club

We wanted a venue where the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception were all at one location, preferably with an outdoor ceremony option. We also looked for affordability, beautiful scenery and views, and somewhere easy to travel to.

We chose the Tampa Garden Club because of its location and affordability. They have a beautiful outdoor ceremony and cocktail hour area, a large ballroom with a stage for the band, and stunning floor-to-ceiling windows. It’s also located in the Bayshore neighborhood, which is a beautiful area right along the bay. The Tampa Garden Club was easy to work with, and their wedding manager was always quick to answer emails and calls.

Outdoor Pastel Spring Wedding | Tampa Garden Club

We looked for a modern venue that was a statement itself. It was also important to us that the venue allowed us to choose our own catering and bar services.

We chose Tampa Garden Club because the location was pristine right on the bay, the architecture of the building is breathtaking, and the garden space was perfect for the look of the ceremony we envisioned.

Romantic Outdoor Waterfront Wedding | Tampa Garden Club

I absolutely knew that I wanted to be near the water, but not quite a beach wedding. The Tampa Garden Club is a blank slate so our vision made it come to life! The view is what sold us though. We got married on the front lawn and had this beautiful bay view in the background. It was absolutely breathtaking. The venue allows you to choose your vendors which I loved. Their service was impeccable. Planning from Texas was not always easy but they were so helpful in their communication.

Teal and Gold South Tampa Brunch Wedding | Tampa Garden Club

We wanted something that could be both outside and inside. Florida weather can be a bit tricky. We were able to have an outside ceremony and a wonderful reception indoors.

We felt the Tampa Garden Club gave us everything we needed. Ample parking, beautiful venue space, and the great location were all instrumental in our decision. It provided a magical backdrop with their natural surroundings which only enhanced it.
