Flawless. Maria and the team at SHRS have weddings down to a science, but still have a way of making you feel like you're their only client. When we started our venue search, we looked at cheaper places too but all of them were completely a la carte in terms of getting other vendors. We figured by the time we hired all of them it would cost just as much but be even more stressful trying to coordinate with all individual vendors. The packages at SHRS include venue, catering, alcohol, some decor, cake (as long as you go with one of their preferred vendors), linens, tableware, and your day-of coordinator. Imagine trying to hire all of those separately on top of your DJ, florist, officiant, etc.! The initial price tag may be a bit of a sticker shock, but it's well worth it. Plus, if you're flexible, they'll work with you to lower your overall price.
Our ceremony was in the tent which was gorgeous! It made the 120 people feel like an intimate wedding. Even though it's right next to the pool, you can't hear any outside noise and would have no idea that people were sunbathing on the other side of it. The reception was in the Four Springs ballroom which is simply stunning. There really aren't any other words to describe it, and I feel like googling photos doesn't do it justice but I would highly recommend it.
The food alone is worth every penny. We did a buffet and chose the mahi, New York strip, and eggplant rollatini. We had several vegetarian guests which was the only reason we even entertained the eggplant initially but it ended up being my favorite thing on the menu. We had guests tell us the New York strip was the best steak they've ever had and the mahi got rave reviews as well.
If you're lucky enough to have Maria as your coordinator, count your blessings! She is amazing and knows how to put on a wedding. She asks questions you wouldn't even think to consider, and is incredibly accommodating. Book your wedding here - you won't be disappointed!

The Safety Harbor Spa has been a very popular location for many of the most beautiful weddings we have done over the years! They are well organized, always have a backup plan (FL weather), and always make their brides a priority. Their ballrooms and outdoor spaces are equally gorgeous every time we put our flowers in an event there! Easy to work with!

Great venue if you looking for elegant wedding location that is not on the beach but still has water views and beautiful ball rooms. Great customer service and lot of beautiful areas for pictures .
