Gulf Place Weddings Create Beautiful Beginnings

May 13, 2013 by Jill Tanner

Over the years many people have come to Gulf Place to tie the knot, and today it’s more popular than ever. Shelby Peaden is the representative for Weddings at Gulf Place and says she wants every couple to feel comfortable as they plan the biggest event of their lives. Shelby and staff can accommodate all party sizes and unique requests. Gulf Place is the perfect location for a beautiful beach wedding and reception.

Gulf Place has so many venues from which to choose. The Gulf Place Green is the largest space, located in the center of Gulf Place where concerts and large events are held. The green can accommodate large weddings of hundreds, or small, private weddings with only close family and friends.

The North Green is a far more intimate option, tucked away and surrounded by lush vegetation. Gulf Place also has a private beach access available for ceremonies and gatherings just a short stroll away. There are also three pools - the community pool lined with palm trees for large parties, or the two park pools for smaller parties.  
When getting married, it’s nice to have your family and friends nearby. Grandmothers, cousins, nieces and nephews, new friends, and old friends may not have seen each other in a while or perhaps not even met yet. It’s nice to have everyone within walking distance to one another. Gulf Place has shopping, dining, art and more for all of your guests to enjoy. Gulf Place accommodations include villas, townhomes, condos, and an Inn, as well as a few private homes all within the development. Go to the beach, grab a bite to eat, or buy a new outfit - you won’t need a car for your entire visit.

If you are a couple planning a small wedding, Gulf Place has you covered too. The Event Loft is an indoor space with a terrace that can accommodate up to 75 guests. This is a great place to hold a small wedding, rehearsal dinner, a bridal shower or a brunch.

There is no minimum accommodation booking required, so choose exactly what you need. Gulf Place asks that you choose your caterer, equipment and décor from the approved vendor list, but other vendors are up to the couple. They will give you a preferred vendor list if you need suggestions. Shelby Peaden Events is the wedding coordination company on site, but you can also hire another planner if you wish.
Gulf Place is becoming one of the most sought after spots to start the rest of your life as a married couple. The wide-open spaces, gulf views, and luxuriant landscaping set the stage for one beautiful, classic, never to be forgotten occasion.
