Whitehurst Gallery - Marry Me Tampa Bay | Most Trusted Wedding Vendor Search and Real Wedding Inspiration Site

Whitehurst Gallery

The Whitehurst Gallery is nestled on a 5 acre plot in a residential area of Tarpon Springs, FL. As you arrive to the estate grounds you are immediately captivated by the Gallery’s neoclassical architecture inspired by the Jefferson Memorial in DC.

LGBTQIA-Friendly


The Ceremony:

We recommend to all of our clients having their ceremony featured on the front steps of the Whitehurst Gallery. The backdrop of the stunning Neoclassical architecture provides INCREDIBLE pictures of the big moment. Wedding parties for both are able to line up on either side descending down the stairs creating the perfect focal point for the happy couple. Your guests will be comfortably seated in ghost chairs down the central walkway facing the Gallery. Exterior power outlets allow for a PA system for amplification for the officiant. And don’t forget the harpist!

The Cocktail Hour:

Cocktail hour by the rooftop pool? Why not!? Spill out onto the pool deck for a dramatic cocktail hour. This outside area is the perfect space to gather for a cool beverage while photos are being taken. Lounge by the water or even take a walk up the stairs where you can enjoy a 360 panoramic view of the property, the beautiful tree line, and the sunset.


The Reception:

Dine in style in the “Great Room” featuring a library spanning the entire interior wall of the 2nd floor balcony (visible from the ground floor). As you look up, the domed ceiling features the same detail as you would see in the capitol building in Washington, DC. Marble statues, antique victrolas, and turn of the century artwork are featured in the front foyer, creating an elevated experience and area to stretch your legs during the reception. For those who wish to have acoustic music during the reception, the Whitehurst Gallery is home to a world class 10′ concert grand piano – Blüthner – by request only. Seating for 75 is very comfortable in the Great Room and still provides an area do “get down” while the music plays on!


The Food & Drink:

The Whitehurst Gallery is proud to suggest food and beverage options from our list of “Trusted Vendors”. Though it is not mandatory to utilize these vendors, we strongly recommend them! *As a matter of policy, all vendors MUST be licensed and insured at the Whitehurst Gallery.
