Wedding Bells? Your Waterfront Gazebo Awaits
If you think this spot looks like a good place to be married, you're right. The Davis Islands Garden Club is a delightful place located on the Seddon Island waterfront. Wedding ceremonies in the gazebo are very popular. It's an ideal spot with a view of the water, Harbour Island and the Tampa skyline. The club was originally founded in 1936 and I would imagine there have been thousands of newlyweds who have gathered here with their friends and family to begin their life together. The club members are responsible for development of the 52-acre Marjorie Park and for its care as well as other plants, shrubbery and flowers in both public and private places on the
Islands. Plus they look after our native birds and wildlife. It’s a special mission and they can be proud of all they accomplish. The last time I attended a wedding here, for a young couple, a musician played an acoustic guitar as guests fanned out facing the gazebo and the water. The photos were gorgeous. The beauty and serenity of this garden setting is truly memorable.
