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!!!

Our planning process had many glitches in it, however the venue/ceremony was never one of them. Don was our planner and he was always there for me whenever I had a question. Would recommend this venue to anyone!

Our daughter's wedding ceremony and reception was held at The Rusty Pelican. We could not have been happier with the atmosphere, food and service. The planning was made easy with Don, who paid close attention to every detail. The view of Tampa Bay was hard to beat; the elegance and charm of the venue site was outstanding; the food was absolutely delicious; and the service was phenomenal. We would highly recommend this venue for both the wedding ceremony and reception.

My wedding planner was Don. He was so detail oriented. Everything I wanted and more I found in him as a wedding planner. The venue gives you a list of the vendors that they recommend and frequently work with and everything and everyone flows so well. I suggest sticking with the vendors on the list provided. The only person we didnt use on their list was a pastor. Our family friend married us. If you want a stress free day where you just show up and have the time of your life pick Don.

The Rusty Pelican made the wedding so easy - We started with Omar who was awesome, but ended with Don who was also so awesome and on top of everything - They give you a timeline...follow it - it makes life so much easier. The wedding was perfect, the space is SO beautiful - it was the only venue I looked at...and the food was amazing. We got so many compliments that it was the best wedding people had been to. GO for it!! It's SOOO worth the money. Abby and Nick Morle
