  • I had my wedding at St. Pete Beach Community Center February 2020. This venue is incredible and highly underrated. I had toured 5+ venues before this one and couldn't pass up the views and the ability to bring in all your own rentals/food/etc. You have full flexibility to make it your own and bring your vision to life at a fraction of the cost. I would 100% recommend this venue to any future brides!

  • After spending days looking for the perfect venue we decided to use Saint Pete Beach Boca Ciega Ballroom! The front office was very easy to work with throughout and very accommodating the day of our wedding. We feel that they went above and beyond and highly recommend you have your wedding here! Thank you so much! Pros: Cheaper than most Allow you to bring your own alcohol and pick all vendors No sandy ceremony Lots of parking Beautiful and convenient facility Beautiful setting and landscaping We were able to do a rehearsal the day before onsite Chairs provided and set up/taken down for ceremony Table/chairs provided and set up/taken down for reception Polite and speedy staff

  • I'll admit I was apprehensive when we went to visit the SPBCC as a venue but upon arriving we were blown away. We had a church wedding so our cocktail hour was held outside where most people have their ceremony and then went to the room upstairs for the reception. During cocktail hours, there were dolphins in the bay - blowing away all of our guests who are mainly from the north. The views, even from upstairs were breathtaking. The room comfortably fit our 115 guests as well as an 8 piece band. The waitstaff was able to move around comfortably to serve dinner. The room got quite warm at one point with all the dancing but they were able to turn up the AC for us to make it cooler. With the money we saved from booking this venue, we were able to spend a little extra to bring in some nice decor to help liven the room. All of our vendors had no problem cooking, preparing, etc. in the venue.

    responded with the following comments.

    Vanessa, We're so glad you enjoyed our space and we're happy the dolphins decided to stop by :) Thank you for choosing St. Pete Beach Recreation!

  • This venue was fantastic, affordable and beautiful. Not only did Stephanie provide us great service when visiting and booking, when we were forced to postpone due to Hurricane Irma they were very flexible and responsive.

  • Our wedding ceremony was downstairs on the intercostal which was perfect and exactly how I’d pictured and the Boca Ciega Ballroom was perfect for our wedding reception! It was absolutely beautiful and we had plenty of room for our guests. Stephanie was wonderful to work with as well. She was very responsive, reassuring and helpful! I would definitely recommend the St. Pete Beach Boca Ciega Ballroom if you want a beautiful scenery and spacious venue to accommodate your guests and vendors!

  • I am so glad that we booked the Boca Ciega ballroom for our wedding venue we had went to a few places before we found this one even though the other places were on the cheaper side I love this place more because of the parking that you didn’t have to pay for and the openness of the space and the fact that you didn’t have to share your venue space with the food set up, loved that we had the bar and cocktail hour on the wrap around balcony and just loved the ocean view perfect for the view of the ocean with out the sand for my formal none beach wedding ceremony, the faculty is well taken care of, the staff is always friendly and took care of us also provided us with vender suggestions and was always responsive with the emails for questions or concerns we had. I also loved this venue bc I’ve been to at least 5 weddings in the past year and everyone would do it at the clearwater Rec or another common place so I wanted to be different and do something no one else did and I’m glad we...

  • This venue is beautiful but my experience with the staff at the end of our event destroyed the whole day for us. You have to hire cleaners or clean yourself but don't let the rental time fool you.....if you reserve until midnight, you're kicked out and rushed out of the door immediately after the music stops. Was so embarrassed for my family and friends that traveled states away, enjoyed the night and then was pushed out, drinks thrown away and the staff even took some of our center pieces......so bad :(

  • This is a wonderful venue for a wedding. The waterfront view and large veranda have to be the best parts. I got gorgeous pictures and there was no sand to worry about. The price was very affordable for a place big enough to accommodate up to 180 people. My favorite part about renting this venue for my reception is that I could use my own caterers! Many other wedding venues require you to buy a whole package. There is plenty of parking available and additional large rooms for changing and so on.

  • This is the most amazing venue and the price was fantastic! It was so gorgeous to be on the water and such a perk to be able to get married at the same place. Only complaint is the air shut off in the middle of the event and by the time we realized it it was to late to change it. So we were all incredibly hot. But other than that I would still choose all over again!
