Whether it's an intimate gathering garbed in Renaissance gowns or 1,000 guests classically attired for a traditional ceremony, Cinderella wishes and fairy tale romances come true at more than 300 weddings per year at Don CeSar Beach Resort - Florida's Legendary Pink Palace since 1928. Rising regally from the sugary Gulf shores of St. Pete Beach, the Don surrounds the betrothed in a wedding cake setting while resort specialists make bridal whims a reality with brilliant turnkey programs from obtaining marriage licenses to arranging sunset hot air balloon departures.
One of the overwhelming enticements of the Don, which attracts wedding parties from as far away as Scotland, is simple -- it is picture perfect. The legendary landmark architecture of the Don reflects a flamingo-pink, Mediterranean castle sharply chiseled against the sky and accented by Moorish bell towers and imperial turrets. Fittingly described by the Atlanta Journal Constitution as "an old-fashioned, pink-iced wedding cake towering over the shore," the resort's powdery beaches, sweeping staircases and tropical gardens are breathtaking accents for wedding ceremonies and portraits.
