  • We felt compelled to leave a 10-Star review if possible! My husband and I truly had the best experience we could ever hope for. From beginning to 'I do' we cannot thank Gulf Beach Weddings and their staff enough. Originally our date was during the shutdown however, postponed to mid-June 2020. They were kind, understanding and very easy to work with. The weather turned out to be absolutely beautiful and the Officiate & Photographer were just down to earth and so happy for us on our Big Day! We can't imagine going with another company...their customer service and overall communication was second to none. Not to mention, their website was extremely user friendly and had a ton of up to date information, new guidelines, etc. that the beaches kept changing. If you are planning to get married on the beach in Florida, there is literally only one company to go with - Justin and I would highly recommend this company to anyone and everyone!

    Trisha, we are so delighted for you two - thank you for letting us share in your Big Day! The weather was truly inspiring and we can't thank you two enough for trusting in us with all the beach changes that were out of both of our control. We now know you two can weather any storm that may come!

  • Hello, we had our daughters wedding ceremony with you on June 26th, and it was amazing! Everyone had a fantastic time, it was so beautiful! Kevin performed the ceremony so eloquently and perfectly, and Matt and Brandy set up the chairs and ceremony decor with such precision and detail it was absolutely breathtaking! We couldn't be more pleased with what you folks do for weddings. You all went above and beyond and made our special event so awesome! I know you do this all the time, but you truly made us feel like we were your only clients. Thank you so much, you are amazing!

  • My wife and I were trying to plan our wedding here at home in MI. We were having lots of trouble it seemed due to it being the year 2020 haha. We decided to move our ceremony to the lovely Indian rocks beach near St. Petersburg FL. Gulf beach weddings made the day absolutely perfect. It was seriously as easy as picking the options out online, sending the deposit. Someone called to confirm all the details and then paid the remainder when it was due. They had every single detail down even having a photographer. My absolute favorite part besides not having to set up or tear down was the steel drummer. EVERYONE needs a steel drummer at their ceremony. I would not have changed a single thing except for making this my first option. We had a 4 post gazebo, blessing stones, unity sand, Father Andy, bottles of water, chairs, chair sashes. rose pedals in the isle, Disney rope and a day I will never forget. Thank you to everyone at Gulf Beach Weddings for everything. Thank you for making my day s... Read more

  • UNBELIEVABLE EXPERIENCE - TRULY AMAZING! My fiance and I are so pleased to have chosen this company for our Beach Wedding. From the first moment, they were responsive, professional, and attentive to our needs. I think I called them on a Sunday and someone picked up who was extremely helpful on a Sunday! We thought about postponing with all that is going on in the world today, but I couldn't postpone marrying the person of my dreams, Eric. The setup was beautiful, weather perfect, and overall just a seamless experience. Gulf Beach Weddings - your whole team rocks! We are so thankful to have picked such a thoughtful beach wedding company, as there are so many to choose from. Please specifically thank Omar and his team (Setup Crew), the Officiate and Photographer were also awesome! I can't imagine a more perfect day making me feel relaxed, prepared, and confident just before beginning my walk down the aisle. I know the news portrayed 'Florida as the Epicenter' but we had the e... Read more

  • WOW - INCREDIBLE! What an amazing ceremony! We traveled from Tennessee to have our beach ceremony in Florida. Absolutely a pleasure to work with from the beginning, especially with all the crazy news these days. We kept the date and were determined to marry the love of our lives. This company was professional, on point, and always there to help when we had questions or concerns. Not quite sure what all the hype is on the news - we found the entire experience amazing. The beaches really are back to normal (slightly less crowded...which we appreciated). I can't help but mention and felt compelled to review Gulf Beach Weddings with 5-Stars (6 if I could!) They totally put our mind at ease throughout the process. We reserved back in January 2020, with our ceremony in Mid-July. They kept in contact throughout the beach closures and into their reopening in early May. We have been looking forward to this for so long (since I was a little girl and went to the beaches with my family). We are so... Read more

  • I found out about Gulf beach weddings through a co-worker and it was a blessing, because it was everything my fiancé and me always dream programed by an expert effortlessness and affordable. We did our homework reading in their website and then started to contact them through emails, they are very fast answering any doubt you may have. We set a date and signed a contract with them, everything went smooth until the covid-19 made appearance, all the beaches were closed and we needed to cancel our ceremony. They explained to us that in that case we will end losing the deposit but they were flexible to reschedule another date. Like a month before the wedding they contacted us to confirm details and answer any question we might have. Also the officiant contacted us. The day of the ceremony the weather conditions were not very favorable and our wedding planner was in constant contact with us, letting us know that he was in the site since very early that day setting everything up, follow...

  • I can not say enough good things about Gulf Beach Weddings. We decided on Miramar Beach in Destin, FL. Their prices cant be beat, to start. We decided on the Intimacy package and the entire set up was beautiful. Our photographer, Roland, was amazing and really made a great experience before, during, and after the ceremony. Adam, the coordinator from Gulf Beach, was very friendly and accommodating. Donna was our officiant and was extremely friendly. All communication from start to finish was quick and friendly. We ran into some very unfortunate issues during our planning and Gulf Beach Weddings was nothing but extremely understanding and accommodating. We could not be any happier with our experience. THANK YOU!!!

  • We can't thank Gulf Beach Weddings enough for providing the beach wedding of our dreams. With months of planning, lodging, coordinating schedules with our family and every last detail. We were blown away by the professionalism and constant communication they provided leading up to and during the wedding. We would highly recommend them to any of our friends and family and to a stranger! You can't go wrong by choosing Gulf Beach Weddings for the perfect beach wedding!

  • As a Covid bride, I was devastated when I had to shift from a 300 person wedding to a 30 person intimate ceremony. After I broke down about what to do, my fiance found Gulf Beach Weddings and gave them a call. From start to finish, Gulf beach was responsive and handled everything for us. We immediately trusted them with our wedding and are so grateful we did. Our ceremony turned out perfectly, the live music, the photographer, the videographer, the officiant, the coordinator. Everyone showed up and took care of us. I laugh that I am a stressed person at all times, but on my wedding day I was at my most relaxed. I put all my trust in Gulf Beach and they didn't disappoint. My fiance on the other hand was a wreck, but was super grateful for George (the officiant) and Damien (the coordinator) who remained calm throughout the evening. Thank you for making our middle of a pandemic wedding as stress free and beautiful as it possibly could have been!

Everyone here at the Gulf Beach Weddings wishes you and your loved ones all the best for the future! Congratulations again!

  • They went above and beyond for us! Damien did a fantastic job setting up and coordinating the event and explaining things to us and the wedding party. The ceremony was flawless and the music was timed perfectly. The officant Dan was a really nice guy and did a great job and gave us the script in a card afterwards which was really neat and meant alot. He also called a few days beforehand to see if we had any questions and to go over the details. Chris the photographer did an amazing job and was great to work with. We don't have any complaints and couldnt ask for a more perfect day. We also rented our reception hall through them as well as our catering, photographer and officiant.

  • I cannot say enough positive things about Gulf Beach Weddings. They made our day just perfect. Their communication is the best and they are so quick to respond. They went above and beyond for us when we encountered a travel emergency and had to change our date last minute. They were so accommodating and made sure everything was perfect for us when we arrived. Would definitely recommend Gulf Beach Weddings for your special day.

  • We've held off on online reviews to this point, hoping Gulf Beach Weddings would do the right thing so we could share a positive review with you all. However, months later, they have not. If you're planning a wedding during the pandemic, or you're nervous about a 2nd wave, you'll wish to read the details below. Our 4/3/20 wedding was cancelled due to the shutdown restrictions regarding COVID-19. We contacted Gulf Beach Weddings a couple weeks before the scheduled date to advise we needed to cancel. We spoke with the office manager who agreed to a refund of 85% of the total paid for the wedding as long as we would sign a hold harmless agreement stating that in exchange for our refund, we would not leave any reviews online regarding our experience with them, or pursue the rest of our money in any way. We reluctantly agreed to this, however, we also wanted to address a separate charge – the fee we paid to have our marriage license executed. Because our wedding wasn’t going to occur, w... Read more

    Holly/Matthew, thank you for your feedback above. We truly aim to exceed all expectations with our couples. While you weren’t able to experience one our perfect beach weddings there are a few things to note. The deposit is non-refundable in all cases and used to reserve the date/time, vendors, permit, etc. on your behalf. We have four full time staff that answer phone calls/emails, maintain the warehouse, schedule permits and physically organize each event both on paper and in the vans. For all couples 3/20/20-5/3/20 that were unable to have a beach ceremony and/or postpone, we refunded the amount above the deposit whilst extending the Postponement period for up to 15 months as offered to you. We simply do not tolerate couples that yell at staff over the phone, threaten legal action, hang-up mid-sentence and file chargebacks on all three charges (including the Marriage License). Once a chargeback is filed, we are required to submit evidence accordingly. The result, PayPal’s Resolution Center found all charges valid and in our favor. Since, you have filed complaints with the Better Business Bureau, Attorney General’s Office, Pinellas County Consumer Protection, Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, and several 1-Star Reviews. We wish you two all the best and there was more we could do given the circumstances.
