Despite having a change of coordinator Just a few weeks before, everything went over without a hitch. It is a beautiful beach, stunning views, and naturally breathtaking. The food was spectacular! Best wedding food I've ever had! Rachel is a lovely coordinator and understands your wants and needs. Even as a completely over obsessive bride, she satisfied all my needs. Also, the wait staff is friendly and good at what they do. I would totally recommend them for any event!

I had always wanted a beach wedding that could house our ceremony & reception. I originally spoke with Dana at Sand Key Beach in Clearwater but when I found out that they do weddings on Honeymoon Island in Dunedin, I was elated. I love the city of Dunedin! She passed me over to Doug, who is the event coordinator for the island and it's been an incredible bond ever since.

Doug is one of the nicest and sweetest guys I know. He is kind, considerate and really listens to your vision. He truly desires to make your day, YOUR day!

When we booked with Doug, my worry melted away. I knew that our wedding was in the safest of hands. From the start Doug helped with everything, from the selection of the ceremony, to our menu for the reception. He set up our reception table, helped pin flowers on the groomsmen, was there as I walked down the aisle, as we sang him Happy Birthday, to even packing up our items and cake (that we didn't get to eat) and saving it for us so that we could pick it up another day and not have to worry about it on our wedding night.

We didn't have to lift a finger thru the entire process, Doug handled everything. The food was remarkable - every single one of our guests LOVED the food and most of them went up for seconds.

If you're looking for a stress free, magical, beautiful and wonderful wedding ceremony & reception location, look no further. Choose Honeymoon Island and let Doug make your dreams come true. Bravo!!

We used the Honeymoon Island Pavillion for our wedding and were very happy with the results. Doug Lender was very helpful and wonderful to work with. During the planning stage, If we had any questions or issues he was quick with an answer or quick to find one. For the wedding itself, everything came together beautifully, everything I had wished for. He was on top of it, extremely helpful. We could not have asked for more. The setting was beautiful, food was fantastic, service was superb. I would high recommend this venue and Doug to anyone wishing to also have a Beach wedding of their dreams...:)

I can't say enough great things about this venue.. the people especially Doug Lender made our wedding day absolutely perfect. This was the perfect place to host a destination wedding. They handled the flowers, cake, food, chairs and arch. They raked the beach and had everything set up and decorated before the guests arrived. Doug went out of his way to make sure everything was perfect for us and our guests. If I had any questions prior to the wedding Doug was just a phone call away. When my head count changed on the day of my wedding, Doug made sure that they were accommodated - he took all the stress out of planning a destination wedding away. Doug Lender thank you so much for making our day so special!

Having our wedding on the beach was a fun experience for us and our guests. From beginning to end the process was simple. Doug at Honeymoon Island State Park does this all the time and it shows. The whole event went smoothly and there was not much to worry about. The only issue was not knowing until very close to the event date that we had to produce our own directional signs to the beach site.

When I first started working with Honeymoon Island, I did not have a pleasant experience with Tina. I requested to have someone else be in charge of my wedding and that was the best decision I could of made because I then met Shane! Shane was absolutely amazing, he put so much time and effort into my wedding and it was everything I dreamed of and more!! Everything was absolutely perfect and went SO smooth! It couldn't of possibly been any better than it was. We are so thankful to have had Shane!!

Tina at Honeymoon Island was incredibly responsive and helpful throughout the entire process. Our ceremony on the beach at Honeymoon Island and reception on South Beach Pavilion was amazing. The only reason I didn't give a 5 star overall rating is due to a few minor things that happened such as garbage cans that were left on the beach during the ceremony, lack of guidance for our guests when they arrived to the ceremony and some of our guests did not receive the passed Hors D'oeuvres at their tables during the cocktail hour. These were very minor issues that in the grand scheme of things did not effect the overall feeling of our wedding. Our guests had a great time and the view from the pavilion was panoramic and beautiful! I would definitely recommend having a wedding on Honeymoon Island!

The day of our wedding it rained terribly. The signage for the location of the wedding had all blown down and been washed away. There was no other signage that was provided by the venue. Our wedding was moved at the last minute to the pavillion where there were already beach goers sitting and hanging out. The "managers father "came up to me once we moved to the pavillion and said that they planned to have the cake and champagne toast before the actual ceremony. Communication was terrible in regard to the quick move. The old guy that came up to me was never a part of my contacts with honeymoon island. I was told later that he may have a little dementia (He shouldnt be allowed to make communication with the bride)They did serve the cake but then boxed up what was left by cramming it in to-go containers. It turned out fine because the minister was excellent and nothing could really spoil the day anyway. I understand weather is an issue but they seemed very disorganized and made quite a bit of money that day...There were 5 weddings that same day and I am quite sure made no less than $1000 on each with very little work or effort.

While looking through my wedding pictures, I am reminded of why I chose to get married and have my reception at Honeymoon Island. It is the ideal setting for a beach bride and provides the perfect backdrop to your special day. I worked closely with Angela (you're awesome) who she led me through the process and helped me with anything and everything. She answered my 1000's of questions, reassured me that everything would be fine when I was panicking, and made it her priority to make my day the best it could be. My wedding was everything I had hoped it would be and more.

My husband and I knew we wanted to get married on the beach, and as soon as we visited Honeymoon Island we knew it was the perfect place! The wedding coordinators were very easy to work with; they were flexible as our guest list went from 75 people to 100 people, and then up to 125 people! We even changed the location of both our ceremony & reception over the 2 years we planned with their staff. They also were able to recommend some great vendors in the area that they have worked with for years.
I knew the Island was the perfect place for my wedding, but they really proved it to me the night of my wedding/reception. They set everything up just as my husband and I requested. They helped with decorating, lighting, and even moving tables to make room to dance later on. The staff was extremely professional the entire night; most of our guests were on vacation from other states & loved everything about the entire wedding.

My husband and I are truly thankfully to the Honeymoon Island staff for making our special day so perfect!

We had a destination wedding in Florida. We picked Honeymoon Island since we have family close in St. Pete and Dunedin. The beach could not have been more beautiful. The sunset wedding, the beautiful tent, and great food was a huge success. The staff were all so personable and easy to work with. I would suggest this place to anyone.

My husband and I got married here on Valentine's Day 2009. Service, Professionalism, Cost & Flexibility couldn't be better. Everyone I dealt with was great and I never had any issues before the wedding day.

I did have to rate a 3/5 on quality of service because of a couple issues on our day..... to some this may be sounding picky, however, remember it is your wedding day and professionals should get it right, especially the simple requests....

1. chairs were not set up correctly
2. aisle was not made wide enough, as requested, for both of my parents to walk me down together, my mom had to wind up walking behind me instead of next to me.
3. the most MAJOR reason for lower rating.... we arrived for the start of our ceremony to find out that they had moved our location to another section of the beach then from what we had originally selected!!! no one informed us of this, so imagine our surprise......especially when we had went our earlier that morning before they set up and put down our aisle runner, a sign, pillars and baskets with rose petals and programs inside, at where our ceremony was supposed to be, all of which went somehow disappeared by the time we went to collect it afterwards. So not only did we not have the location that we picked, we also didn't have any of the stuff we set up there and then it was stolen..... oh, and all the map cards we had printed showed our guests the original place to go, so imagine the confusion that caused them, plus, we were scheduled to be right at sunset so we could capture the beautiful backdrop, but since things got all mixed up, we missed out on our prime sunset by about 10 minutes too!! All in all though, the ceremony was still beautiful and all that really mattered in the end was that we were married :)

So definitely make sure you double check they set you up where you should be.

4. lastly, our area on the beach was clean, however, lots of rocks. they did attempt to clean up the area, but they really didnt do a very good job at it, so be sure to check out your area the night before or morning of to make sure the walkway areas you will be utilizing are clear enough. Most of my family & guests, even myself, had an extremely hard time trying to get to seats and down aisle, a few even fell down, as well as myself having a few close calls.

To help make up for everything, they did offer for us to go back one day and have a free day on the island with use of beach furniture, watercrafts, ferry, lunch and drinks... so that helps make up for everything now that we have had time to get over it all to where we could kind of laugh about it now... we are looking forward to going as part of our anniversary weekend next month.

I still highly recommend them for anyone who wants a beautiful beach wedding overlooking nothing but ocean. they have a ton of different locations to pick from for your perfect view. fyi... if you go through them for everything, it is a bit pricey, we only used them for chair rental, set up, take down and of course the required fees for event & entrance, you can really save a ton if you bring in your own vendors and such.

good luck & happy planning

My husband and I got married here on Valentine's Day 2009. Service, Professionalism, Cost & Flexibility couldn't be better. Everyone I dealt with was great and I never had any issues before the wedding day.

I did have to rate a 3/5 on quality of service because of a couple issues on our day..... to some this may be sounding picky, however, remember it is your wedding day and professionals should get it right, especially the simple requests....

1. chairs were not set up correctly
2. aisle was not made wide enough, as requested, for both of my parents to walk me down together, my mom had to wind up walking behind me instead of next to me.

Kim and Shane were great to work with. Our ceremony took place on an island - reachable only by boat. Coordination was critical! Kim and Shane worked with our coordinator, musician and florist to make sure that everything ran smoothly and on time. Brought great ideas. They were very accomodating - just great. Can't say enough good things. I highly recommend Caladesi Island - and Kim and Shane.
