Wedding Venue Highlight: Isla Del Sol, St. Petersburg, Florida

Isla Del Sol Yacht & Country Club is located on an island in the Boca Ciega Bay, just north of Tierra Verde between the southern tip of St. Petersburg and St. Pete Beach. In addition to a multitude of benefits available to it’s members, their facilities are perfect for weddings.

A private beach and gazebo makes for a picturesque backdrop for a beachside wedding. Or one of their lovely rooms easily converts into an indoor ceremony site, where the large widows lets the outside in. Isla’s convenient location makes use of one of the many area’s churches easy for a formal religious ceremony option.

The lobby includes a two story waterfall enveloped by a glass walled grand staircase. This lends itself for a perfect end to your wedding day weather you choose to utilize it for a great away location or end of the night photographs.

Their beautiful Ballroom looks out over the Boca Ciega Bay, affording views of the incoming and outgoing yachts, breathtaking sunsets and a romantic nighttime cityscape beyond the Bay. It also features a very large built in wooden dance floor and French doors that open up to their fully stocked bar room.

As professional wedding photographers who have worked in this area now for over fifteen years, we have had the privilege of working at Isla Del Sol more than once. The greater Tampa Bay area has so many venues available for every taste and budget, however, for us, Isla is one of the few that stands out among the rest.

Here is a sample of our work from a couple that chose to have their ceremony held at a church and their reception at Isla Del Sol. www.briancidocks.com/melissa-and-james-christ-united-methodist-church-and-isla-del-sol-yacht-club-wedding/

They used Isla’s club room for getting ready and had time to take a golf cart around the grounds for images captured on Isla’s very own golf course. They transformed a portion of the ballroom to be their ceremony cite, with the overlook of the Bay as their background.

Brian and I look forward to each visit of Isla Del Sol Yacht & Country Club and would highly recommend it as a potential wedding venue.
