Wedding Ceremony at Veteran’s Memorial Park in Oldsmar


If you are looking for the perfect location for a Tampa Bay wedding check out Veteran’s Memorial Park in Oldsmar. The park overlooks old Tampa Bay and has a large beautiful gazebo where wedding ceremonies can be held. The gazebo is available to rent for a very reasonable price. The wedding can be held in the gazebo, with chairs lined up just outside in front of the gazebo, or if wedding is small all guest can gather in the gazebo for the ceremony. The park has restroom facilities and is open sunrise to sunset.

Recently, I performed a wedding ceremony at Veteran’s Memorial Park in Oldsmar for Angie and Alberto . Tables were setup inside the gazebo along the sides. Food, drinks, wedding cake, and other snacks were setup for an outside park reception. Alberto had decorated the gazebo and setup all the chairs. It was very nice!


Many beautiful spots for pictures!

On Mother’s Day, I performed a wedding ceremony at Veteran’s Memorial Park in Oldsmar for Erin and Tom. Tom and his son rode their bikes down to the park. Erin and Tom wanted to be married at the pretty park.  I officiated a sweet and simple wedding ceremony then they went to  Kelly’s in Dunedin for a reception.

Backyard Wedding Ceremony Tampa

Backyard Wedding Ceremony Tampa


Summar contacted me about performing a wedding ceremony for her daughter Lindsey and son in law to be Brett. The wedding was going to be held in their backyard at her home in Tampa.  She wanted me to put together a package with an arbor, officiant, music and table with cloth covering for sand ceremony.

I put the package together for her and corresponded with her Lindsay about the ceremony and music.

The wedding day was a gorgeous fall day. The backyard was setup beautifully for the wedding. White chairs were setup and hook lanterns were placed on outside of chairs lining the aisle. The ceremony was between two beautiful trees on the lawn.

Lindsey selected a beautiful vow piece that was full of emotion and love. She also wanted to include where she and Brett would be giving roses to their Mother’s. Lindsey and Brett said vows to each other.

Both had tears in their eyes as they said their special words.  We performed a unity sand ceremony with Lindsey, Brett and his son Gabriel.

The ceremony was so beautiful. Lindsey and Brett at the end of the ceremony wanted to start celebrating and chose “Highway to Hell” by AC-DC to be played as they were walking out. A truly fun couple. They pulled out sunglasses and put them on and kicked up their legs and danced down the aisle.

Photos were taken after the ceremony and a backyard reception was setup for all to enjoy.

The following week after the wedding Summar submitted the following 5 Star Review through

Summar said…  I got in touch with Charmaine when I decided to have a back yard wedding for my daughter. I read her reviews and thought she would be a good fit with what we were looking for. She was very responsive in emails and phone calls. She did a great job in her delivery of the ceremony and the sand unity ceremony was great. She brought the table and I also rented a bamboo arbor which looked fantastic. I would highly recommend her services.
