One of our most popular places for St Pete Beach Weddings is the Upham Beach access, a popular pristine beach.

In a residential area primarily bordered by waterfront condominiums, the beach has a snack bar, bridge entrances & plenty of open spaces. This sought after casual beach location offers beautiful lush landscaping. Look south from this unspoiled beach for a lovely backdrop of hotel architecture, including the historic pink Don CeSar Hotel.

St. Pete Beach History
The main street area of St Peach is called Corey Avenue. It was developed in the late 1930’s by real estate developer William Upham (Upham Beach’s namesake). Nearly 28 percent of the total residential homes and condominiums in St. Pete Beach are owned by people claiming primary residence elsewhere. Since the 1950’s St Pete Beach’s strip of beach has been popular with generations of families & other visitors from all over the world. Close to the inland cultural and cosmopolitan attractions of St. Petersburg and Tampa, this barrier island waterfront escape strikes the perfect balance for the casual, laid-back beach bum and the active attraction seeker. The City of St. Petersburg was incorporated in 1957. In 1994, the citizens voted to shorten the name to “St. Pete Beach” to lessen the confusion with the City of St. Petersburg, located on the mainland to the east. This St Pete Beach weddings location is just a 10 minute drive to the St Pete Beach Dinner Cruise.
