Couples planning weddings for 2022, look to St. Petersburg and Clearwater, Florida, for a selection of unique venues that will surprise and delight your guests.


Bellwether Beach Resort

Bellwether Beach Resort offers couples a Style with Love program, designed to make the wedding planning process seamless. A group of influencers and wedding planners designed four different wedding packages, each with a different custom décor design. Something Bleu comes from fashion and interior design blogger McKenna Bleu. This design is feminine and romantic, with soft, light pinks, whites and creams with gold accents. To Have and to Gold was designed by former Miss South Carolina Megan Pinckney Rutherford. The design blends a casual, seaside event with elegant touches, full of gold, white and sandy colors. A Shore Thing was created by wedding planner Andi Lipton. The boho sophisticated design boasts warm neutrals and earthy tones. A Tropical Love Affair from wedding influencer Anna Coats highlights the essence of St. Petersburg with Art Deco tropical designs.


The James Museum of Western & Wildlife Art

The downtown museum features a unique event space highlighting the museum’s collection of art from the American West. The 3,400-square-foot Arroyo space mimics a western riverbed in a sandstone canyon, with imported sandstone interior and bronze sculptures. Perform the ceremony in front of the museum’s 20-foot waterfall. Mesa Hall boasts 5,875 square feet of customizable event space, perfect for the reception.


Museum of Fine Arts St. Petersburg

The fine art museum allows couples to tie the knot amongst classic works of art from artists including Monet, O’Keeffe and Wiley. Couples have several event space options at the museum including the lux ballroom complete with crystal chandeliers, the lush outdoor garden and a conservatory overlooking the water.
