Seashells and Wedding Bells at Alden Suites

If you’re looking for the most romantic way to say “I Do”, a Florida wedding in paradise is the perfect start to your new life as husband and wife. Here at Alden Suites, we’ve been honored to host dozens of weddings on our private beachfront resort. We specialize in smaller weddings that maximize the incredible sunset views that St. Pete Beach provides. The sugar-soft white sand of our sweeping beach, framed by palm trees and glorious skies, offers the perfect venue for your St. Pete Beach wedding celebration.

If you’re like most of our brides, you’re looking to hold your ceremony directly on the beach. We can help you arrange for embellishing the scene with arbors, table linens and fresh flowers, while ensuring that each guest is comfortable and cared for by our dedicated staff. Many of our brides and grooms choose to make a long weekend of it, bringing friends and family from all over to stay together in the spacious suites at the Alden. Our suites have full kitchens and expansive living areas, making them perfect for wedding preparations and family togetherness.

No matter the season, beach weddings will never be boring or outdated. No banquet hall or conference room can match the natural beauty of the ocean and sky, especially during one of our spectacular St. Pete Beach sunsets. Let the sound of the waves soothe your souls as you say your vows beachside.

The Alden offers an affordable option at our St. Pete Beach gulfside resort where you can make your wedding dreams come true. Hold your ceremony on the beach and enjoy a reception on the beachside grassy lawn or the courtyard room.  If you are looking for the perfect getaway for an intimate, private, beach wedding and reception, the Alden Suites is your perfect venue.

Everyone at the Alden Suites was great! Kevin Fox was awesome in planning our reservation. Mike at the front desk was extremely helpful in organizing our multiple rooms. Chris at the front desk was great also! Thanks to the great staff!! -Mark P.

Where my guests were staying was important to us because we had many guests from out of town and we had a Friday wedding and were planning on hanging out with everyone all weekend. As soon as we walked into Alden Suites we fell in love. They were extremely accommodating. Buddy at the front desk was so pleasant and we heard his name and how helpful he was from so many guests. We couldn’t have asked for anything more. Thank you. –-Erin S.

We had the ceremony and reception at the Alden Beach Resort. The scenery was beautiful, the staff was amazing, everything was exactly how I pictured. When I went to check on the setup and wanted to change things a little bit, they did not hesitate to make the changes I was requesting. It was beyond perfect in every way! -Rachael G.
