Treasure Island Beach Destination Weddings

The name says it all. A beach wedding on Treasure Island’s white sand beaches overlooking the Gulf of Mexico creates memories you and your guests will cherish for a lifetime. This barrier island located off the southwest coast of Pinellas County combines a laid-back island vibe with a vibrant bar and restaurant scene for your guests to enjoy.

Every room has a gulf view from Sunset Vistas Beachfront Suites. Couples who stay here are eligible for a ceremony at Sunset Vistas Beach— one of our premier locations. Sunset Vista Beach’s wide expanse of beach leading up to turquoise-blue water can accommodate a beach wedding of hundreds or an intimate gatherings of a few family members.

Sunset Vistas Beachfront Suites is the perfect place for your family and friends to stay on the days leading up to your Treasure Island wedding. With condo-sized suites equipped with a kitchen, living room and dining room, your loved ones can feel relaxed and at home as they celebrate your big day. And with separate children’s and adult pools, your friends without children will enjoy the pool-side luxury expected of a top Florida resort.

Escape the hustle-and-bustle with a ceremony on quiet Sunset Beach on Treasure Island. Located in a residential area, this Treasure Island gem doesn’t have all the convenience of a Sunset Vista Wedding, but what it lacks in amenities it makes up for in beauty. With no hotels or public vendors, Sunset Beach is a less-popular tourist destination, which makes it an ideal wedding spot.   

You will cherish the dramatic images of you and your spouse on a rock jetty with the sun setting behind you. An outdoor pavilion with parking lot available for rent provides an ideal reception spot so your guests can simple walk from the beach to the pavilion to begin the celebration.
