Always wanted to get married on a beautiful island in the Gulf of Mexico?  The ceremony takes place on a remote island in the Gulf close to Clearwater Beach, Tampa and St. Petersburg and includes a full BBQ lunch. 

Your party is taken to the island by sailboat or pontoon boat and you are shuttled from the sailboat to the island where the wedding ceremony will be performed.  All food is prepared and cooked over a charcoal grill on the island in full view by your personal chef.  There are several different menus to suits everyone's taste and budget, served with beverages and choice of salads.

Since this is an island wedding, it's VERY, VERY CASUAL...beach chairs and umbrellas.  If you would like a traditional "sit down" dinner at a table, it is suggested to find another venue.

After your bellies are full and you've had the best day of your life you are returned to the sailboat and sail back to the dock. The entire proceeding lasts for approximately 7 hours.
