  • 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

  • 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!!!

    Teresa, Congratulations and thank you very much for such a specific review. We will certainly share with with all the vendors involved and praise accordingly. Here's to a life filled with happiness and health!

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • This is definitely the right choice if you are trying to have a destination wedding in Florida. All of the employees are really nice and knowledgeable. I got answers to all of my questions usually within 20-30 minutes whenever I sent an email. The 3 guys on site helping us on the day of the wedding were fantastic. We started a little late because our boutonnieres were missing but they were super understanding and talked us through everything. The set up was beautiful (we did the Country Fair theme). We had about 60 people attend. I imagine this would be perfect for a bigger wedding or a smaller wedding. Basically, if you don't want to lift a finger and you're desperate for a beach wedding like I was, this is the right place to go. Thank you so much, Gulf Beach Weddings! We loved every minute of it!

  • I can say that we are just now booking our November wedding and Gulf Beach Weddings made it so easy and stress free for us. Our planner is quick to respond to emails, I'm talking 1-3 minutes after I send my email. He is the BEST at giving me the answers I am looking for and he gives me choices and options. There has not been one concern left unanswered.

  • Thank you GBW for all of your help, guidance, and coordination. Having done many events personally myself, it was a relief to have someone else handling the fine details and coordinating everything on the big scale. The banquet hall you offer is spectacular and everyone loved how beautiful it was. You made things on our special day absolutely streamlined, and our guests were treated with professionalism that made us look like we had it all together... when really, it was you! Thank you so much for helping us achieve the wedding we were hoping for! The photos and video were beautiful! Thank you as well for such great services, our officiant was wonderful, our photographer was amazing, and the staff at GBW is incredible! The Water Station and Champagne Toast were the perfect add on touches! We cannot stop smiling when we think of that day! Please keep doing what you're doing!

  • 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.

  • The Gulf team is great and easy to work with! Our first stop in June to Tampa was their office. They welcomed us with a sweet box of chocolate which was amazing and impressive. Tracy was the one who welcomed us then and introduced their service with details, some tips to travel locally, etc. Also, we have been introduced to their storage place to check all the decorations and equipment they have. It's exactly the same as their website shows. We have been communicating through the tons of emails and phones during the following 5 months to confirm some details. They always gave you in-time feedback/reply, which was pretty good to me (I hate waiting..). To be honest, we are a couple with our designed ceremony setting so you can say we're kind of "picky" on some details. Although gulf cannot make 100% scenes as what we expect, they have tried their best to use their decorations to fulfill our requests. I really appreciate it. And if the gulf team thought it's a good ceremony desig... Read more

    Kimi, Congratulations again and thank you for taking the time to share your detailed feedback! We have enjoyed working with you both and we appreciate you allowing us to share in your special day! We certainly tried our very best to accommodate your custom setup requests, with the decor and equipment we offer with our service. As discussed during the planning phase, not all custom requests were possible (or recommended), however we are happy to hear that our team on site was able to accommodate any last minute requests in a timely manner. Congratulations again, we are so happy for you two!!!
