Pass-a-Grille – St Pete Beach
Pass-a-Grille Beach (pronounced ‘Passa aux Grilleurs’ in French) is regaled as the ‘Perfect Go To Place’ in 2014 by TripAdvisor’s Travelers’ Choice and is ranked #9 out of the Top 25 beaches in the United States. By far, this is the best location for a destination wedding in the Tampa Bay area because of its beauty, remote location, and proximity to vacation amenities. Conveniently located on the southern section of St. Pete Beach, this wedding site offers privacy, ease of access, plenty of parking, tons of great areas for sunset pictures (see aerial), and requires a $250 permit fee ($125 for residents). Immediately to the north is a 1-mile string of high-end residential homes ending at the Don Cesar Hotel (it’s the pink palace on the aerial shot). We have been actively servicing this location for 8+ years now, and it is the reason we purchased our new Reception Facility on St. Pete Beach – Affordable Banquet. Over the years it just keeps getting better and better! This local gem tops the list for its crisp white sand, secluded sand dune via the Boardwalk entrance, eclectic historical character, Gulf of Mexico sunset view, and dolphin-laden shoreline. Many find this location to be the ultimate in destination wedding features: Emerald Blue-Green Water, Palm Trees, Romantic Sand between your toes Environment, Seclusion from the Masses of the St Pete Beach Strip, and Nature’s Finest Panoramic Sunset View.
Celebrating its 100th anniversary in 2011, this is the perfect spot to ‘Get Hitched’ and one of Florida’s best-kept secrets. Our Florida Gulf Beach Weddings team rate this wedding site our #1 location for destination weddings, commitment ceremonies, vow-renewals, intimate elopements, and large 100+ guest weddings. Nearby hotels, restaurants, wine bars, live music, festivals, boat rentals, and museums are just a short drive away. In addition, Pass-a-Grille’s proximity to downtown St. Pete (15-20 minute drive), offers the best in both beach enjoyment and urban amenities.
Florida Gulf Beach Weddings has setup at the end of 22nd Avenue since 2006 – this is the very north end of Pass-a-Grille’s Public Beach Access and least crowded section. Facing north, you have views of the Don Cesar hotel and the entire St. Pete beach skyline. As you go farther south (7-11th Aveues) this area serves as the ‘hub’ of Pass-a-Grille beach: small shoppes, exhibits, local restaurants, B&B’s and Inn’s, and Suntan Saturday Fine Art Market liter this central section of Pass-a-Grille beach. Although not conducive for a wedding, this is an excellent area to troll and take-in the quaint old Florida style charm that is Pass-a-Grille Beach. Continuing south to the end of 1st Avenue, the southernmost tip, this is also a beautiful area with views of Ft. DeSoto Park & Egmont Key. Again, this is not the ideal location for a wedding since it is narrower than the 22nd Avenue location, rocky beach sand, and less parking. However it is equally beautiful and there’s a small pier similar to ‘Mile 0’ in Key West.
Exceeding expectations is both at the core of Florida Gulf Beach Weddings and Pass-a-Grille Beach. Nearby locations include: Upham Beach (4 miles north), and Ft. DeSoto Park (1 mile south, 8 miles by car).
