Our Dream Wedding Come True!
Everyone always tells you that something will go wrong on your wedding day and to be prepared to just roll with it. Our wedding at the Vinoy went off completely without a hitch and was by far the best wedding we’ve ever been to (good thing it was our own!). This is a testament to our amazing event coordinator, Megan, as well as the entire service staff. With the Vinoy, you definitely get what you pay for: a gorgeous setting amongst a fun downtown with plenty of entertainment for your guests, delicious food and cake, attentive service, and a beautiful hotel for your honeymoon suite. We had our ceremony in the Tea Garden and our reception in the Sunset Ballroom (1.5 miles from the hotel, at the Vinoy’s Snell Island golf course). I was sad at first that we couldn’t justify the Grand Ballroom, which would have been perfect if we were having a much larger wedding or a limitless budget, but I have no regrets now. If you go with the Sunset Ballroom, transportation is easy and your guests will love the outdoor space for cocktail hour and a break from dancing. My tip for couples getting married: Whichever reception location you pick will come with a minimum cost for food/beverage. Try to plan so your guest count + food/bev choices come in just under that minimum so you can add UPGRADES! We were able to upgrade to the top tier bar PLUS we added chicken & waffle poppers, which were a huge hit after a couple hours of dancing! We’ve loved the Vinoy for the past few years and now it will mean so much more to us when we come back to visit in the years to come.Sent on 03/19/2019

I wish I could give the Vinoy 100 stars for their flexibility!!!! Planning a wedding in any year is stressful, but in 2020?!?! We had to switch ballrooms 3 months before our wedding date once our RSVP's started coming in and we were running into capacity issues. I can't thank Sheri Morgan from their team enough. She was an absolute dream come true in helping us navigate everything, going above and beyond for us with options and being so flexible in such a crazy year. I also have to very much thank Sean McGrath from their team, who ALSO went above and beyond for us with catering and logistics beforehand, day-of, and even day-after! Their team was so hands-on, professional, flexible and took care of SO much. We had an amazing, SAFE and fun wedding in 2020 and the Vinoy was a dream!Sent on 01/07/2021

St. Pete icon!
We love The Vinoy. A St. Pete icon for those who are locals and looking to get married in the beauty of the city. We got married after the renovations, and all the updates made it so modern, but still with that vintage Florida feel. If Megan is still on the events team, hire her! She was a blessing to work with throughout the entire process.Sent on 01/21/2019
