I had Don as my wedding coordinator. He was professional, and kept everything flowing. They break down everything in the paperwork and tell you exactly what is due when. There is an open house so you can see each room inside and their "preferred vendors" all set upa nd able to speak with them. The best part about this venue was my wedding day was 100 % stress free. They handled everything and my vendors(that day) as well. My wedding was in the grand ballroom and was breathtaking. My guests all loved the food and the view (two walls of ceiling to floor windows overlooking the bay). The only thing I wasnt a fan of was there is no rehearsals the day before, but it all worked out anyhow.

When I moved to Florida in 2010 I had no idea I would end up meeting my husband and having the opportunity to meet Don and the crew from Rusty Pelican. I considered them the "all inclusive venue. So with not being from the area I was not sure about photographers, DJs, etc. One thing that I really liked about Rusty Pelican is that they have a list of vendors that you can use (it is not required) so that was a big help. I had the pleasure of working with Don and he was on point. They provide you with a checklist to help keep you on point. If you go by that you will be stress free. I must admit that I was skeptical towards the end (hey this is my first and LAST wedding and didn't know how things went) and found myself emailing and calling more. But each time Don reassured me that everything would be fine and it was! The ceremony was held in the Grand Ball room and the set-up was AMAZING with the view of the water. And when the sun set the reception set up was breathless. One thing that I really appreciated about Rusty Pelican is that after the ceremony and the pictures they took me and my husband to a secluded room to have time alone and eat our appetizers. ALL the staff members were professional, friendly, and on point. If you are looking for a place that has a water view Rusty Pelican is the place and after search all over in the Tampa Bay Area, I think they prices were very reasonable. A VERY PLEASED BRIDE

The Rusty Pelican is truly full service! My husband and I could not be happier with Don and all of our vendors. Don is THE BEST in the business. He has the highest level of attention to the small details, is extremely organized, and professional. He helped me and kept me organized every step of the way. My wedding was a bit of a challenge as I grew up in Tampa but lived out of state while planning the wedding. Don and the staff at the Rusty Pelican were flexible and very accommodating to special requests. Helpful tips to future brides and grooms: TRUST Don... he is a professional and will make your day very special. Use the approved vendors.... the Rusty Pelican is very selective and particular about the vendors that are allowed on their premises for a reason. Overall excellent experience. I am more than happy to have selected the Rusty Pelican as our venue of choice for the ceremony and reception. The pictures came out phenomenal!!

We are so happy that we got married at the Rusty Pelican! We worked with Don, who is a highly organized wedding planner there at Rusty - and he worked with us from long distance to ensure all of our details were in order. We even had Dueling Pianos as our entertainment and Don worked closely with us and the vendor to make it work - and it was incredible. On the day of the ceremony/reception, everything ran incredibly smooth. Our guests were all impressed with The Rusty Pelican - the views! The food was incredible - I actually made sure to eat because it was so good :) Norma worked directly with us the entire night and she made sure that we always had a drink in our hand - and even hunted for a safety pin for me when I had a dress emergency. At the end of the night she helped our families clean and pack everything up. I just can't say enough about how wonderful our evening was! It was definitely the largest item in our budget - but very well worth it!

The most BEAUTIFUL wedding venue ever!!! I loved every aspect of my wedding (ceremony and reception were in the Grand Ballroom), and it was absolutely perfect. Everything went seamlessly thanks to the professionals at the Rusty Pelican. They were so attentive the day of the wedding, we felt like royalty!!! The venue doesn't offer a full rehearsal because they have weddings going every weekend, but you don't need it because their staff guides you through every step of the day. I definitely recommend this vendor!!!

We had both our ceremony and reception at Rusty Pelican in Tampa. Both the ceremony and reception were in the Grand Ballroom. We could not have asked for a more perfect night!! The entire staff was extremely attentive and helpful the night of the wedding. They were with us every step of the way.The food was absolutely delicious...the steak was cooked to perfection! Rusty Pelican is such a beautiful location, and the water views were spectacular. We highly recommend Rusty Pelican for a wedding or any other event!

My dream wedding cake true at this venue. Don valente was our coordinator and that guy knows exactly what he is doing, he is very punctual and nothing slides by him, he's on key. I was a nervous wreck the days leading up to the wedding but I knew he had it under control, the venue was beautiful and I even had someone tell me they felt like they should have sent me a thank you card for inviting them to the wedding because they enjoyed it that much, atmosphere was beautiful!!!
