Your Feet in the Sand—Your Eyes on the Future

The Don CeSar’s proud heritage dates all the way back to 1928. But today, it’s the ideal setting for your big day. And since our Pink Palace sits right on the Gulf of Mexico, you can count on a view to wow your guests. However you envision your wedding, The Don offers romantic ceremony locations ranging from our tropical courtyard to Gulf-front beach to our Grand Ballroom. We also have eight elegant reception locations including beachside pavilions and stunning outdoor terraces.

Intimate gatherings are a special passion of ours, but we can also accommodate weddings for up to 250. Our seasoned Wedding Specialists will attend to every detail. If your wedding party needs makeup done, we have a full menu of services including special wedding offers at our own Spa Oceana. It’s no wonder that of all the St. Petersburg hotels, only Loews Don CeSar was named Best of the Best by The Knot brides in 2008–2013, and 2015. In addition, the Don CeSar was awarded The Knot’s Hall of Fame award and Visit St. Pete Clearwater’s Best Wedding Venue in 2015.
