Madeira Beach Weddings at Archibald Park

This hidden gem of Old Florida has been made world famous by John’s Pass Boardwalk & Village. In the early days, many deep sea fishing fleets were headquartered at this passageway where the Gulf of Mexico meets the Intracoastal Waterway.

Since 1950 the Candy Kitchen has been a Madeira Beach icon. Located at the midpoint of this barrier island, the sweet shop features ice cream, fudge & candy of every description & color. “If you’re not barefoot, you’re overdressed,” is the dress code for Madeira Beach.

A wedding even I could plan!

Everything was made so easy it is clear that planning from another state has been streamlined by Gayle & Joe. Talking directly by phone is an option, but I was able to handle everything via e-mail without any issues. I would recommend this option if you are looking for a beach wedding. We were so nervous when we arrived, but the team was so friendly that we felt comfortable immediately after interacting with them. It was a very positive experience!

Beautiful beachside ceremony by a professional, experienced company

Even though my husband and I were married in the midst of a tropical storm, the Weddings On a Whim staff were prepared, professional, and kind. The ceremony was beautiful. They were everything I needed on such an important day. It was the best day of my life! I highly recommend them to anyone!

Wedding for June 2020 Clearwater Beach Florida

They have been excellent in helping me get pricing and the best route to have a private wedding on a boat!! Definitely a bargain of a deal as well! Planning a destination wedding from out of the state is challenging and so far they have made decisions easier!

{ Jennifer Creekmore }

Great experience!

We did our ceremony at Sand Key Beach Park near Clearwater Beach. Everything went as planned for our ceremony. We got to pick what was said in the ceremony. It was really nice to get to include a message for my late father, and also one for our unborn baby. We were sent an itinerary of the ceremony as well as reminders of what to bring which was really helpful. Gayle did a great job with the ceremony, Jerry took amazing pictures for us and everyone else on their team did a great job with set up and organizing everything. Thank you all! I highly recommend them!

A Dream Come True!

Our wedding ceremony was perfect! We couldn’t have asked for anything more. Weddings On a Whim worked with us from our initial contact till the very end. They were very professional and catered to our needs. No number of questions were too many.

We absolutely loved everything they did for us. They even went so far as to helping us with emergency pocket squares. They truly went above and beyond.

We highly recommend them!

Awesome, Responsive and Helpful at Every Turn

Joe steered us to a quiet intimate place on Treasure Island. It was a good value. I’m sure we would have preferred less wind that day, but it was blissfully cooler than our summer heat. Our northern family was happy with the temps. All in all we have beautiful memories and couldn’t have been happier!!!

{ Wendy Wood }

Excellent service

We are from MN and had no idea what to expect getting married in clearwater since we both have never been there. WOW made it so easy to plan and when I was second guessing things they assured me everything would work out. They are very professional and they were a pleasure to work with.

{ Michele Dochniak }

The day of the wedding went perfect, from the setup, music and the ceremony.

“Gayle and the team were fantastic. We planned the wedding from Maine and Gayle couldn’t have made it any easier. From the beginning, she was friendly, positive and responsive. Even the week before the wedding, we needed to ask Gayle to be a backup officiant if we needed it, she was so flexible and accommodating. The day of the wedding went perfect, from the setup, music and the ceremony.
THANK YOU, Gayle and Team, for everything.”
