Here’s a list of the best Tampa wedding venues based on my research and style preferences. Tampa is literally so blessed to have everything from theatres, repurposed banks, rooftop hotels and even yachts to choose from.
These Tampa wedding venues have been added on this list for standing out in decor, opportunity for photographs and having pretty amazing google reviews from past couples. If I missed one and you think it shouldn’t be added, leave a comment and I’ll set up a tour to see for myself. I will periodically update this last as time goes on or I find some hidden gems.

Armature Works is a fully restored mixed-use building thats located in the historic Tampa Heights neighborhood. The rooftop is gorgeous, but I’d highly suggest touring the theatre as well. One great thing to love about Armature Works is that you have options when it comes to where you have your ceremony and reception. The main locations you can rent for your special day are The Gathering, The Loft, The Courtyard, Social Room, Social Hall, The Theatre, or my personal favorite for smaller weddings The Loft. Each space has a distinct look and feel each with its own benefits.
