Hi there! There are a lot of beautiful outdoor reception areas in Florida. What is the size of your guest list? If you are having a smaller wedding a beautiful place is Island Bamboo Gardens in Pinellas Park. I have photographed a couple of weddings there and the place is really really pretty, perfect for an intimate wedding. The Lange Farm is another great place that has lovely outdoor settings and they also have indoor options in case of rain. If cost is not an issue, the Crosley Estate in Palmetto is exquisite! They have a large building and beautiful grounds. The Palmetto Club has a lovely lawn that is beautiful set up for a wedding. It all depends on what you are looking for and what you have in mind for your wedding and the style of your event. There are so many options in and around Clearwater/Tampa/St.Pete - please feel free to e-mail me if you want any additional suggestions and I am sure you will get a lot of great ideas from this message board. Best of luck as you plan your wedding!

Wow! Thank you so much I really appreciate your suggestions! Very helpful! I will look up these places for sure.
I don't know if you have thought about this but we had our reception on the Calypso Queen Party Boat and we had the whole 2nd floor, it was great we were out at sea for 4 hours and they have a full bar and they even provide the food if you want and it is very reasonable and they clean up the mes :).....also the food is served on glass plates with silverware....its a nice way to have a reception everyone at our reception loved it and were talking about our wedding for months......Happy Wedding and good luck
Thank you so much! Great suggestion! Thanks for taking the time to write
There are so many beautiful beaches & parks to have a wedding at. I don't know how large or whether you are looking for something where you can have
an outside gathering after your wedding. Fred Howard Park in Tarpon Springs is beautiful, and has shelters where you could have a party after your wedding. It is over looking the ocean. Phillippe Park in Safety Harbor is another outside park with shelters. You can bring food, and have a nice party after your wedding. Please e-mail me if you would like some other ideas or suggestions. I have a number of them that I could recommend. This photograph is at Sunset Beach also in Tarpon Springs. Love to hear from you.
