Weddings at Kapok Special Event Center

Thank you for your interest in renting our unique and beautiful facility for your event. Kapok Pavilion offers guests the beauty and grace of Europe not found readily anywhere in the United States.

We're conveniently located just minutes from Tampa International Airport, St. Pete/Clearwater Airport, Ruth Eckerd Hall, and the major arteries of West Central Florida.

Kapok Gardens

As you enter the Kapok Gardens, you'll think you've been whisked away into an enchanted dream. Massive Italian fountains and statuary will greet you — leading the way through beautifully-landscaped greenery to a hidden lagoon overlooking the Grand Ballroom.

Grand Ballroom

Replete with European splendor, the Grand Ballroom is the centerpiece of our wonderful venue — featuring an enormous chandelier, an elegant Grand Entry staircase, and a large balcony overlooking lush tropical gardens. The Grand Ballroom will add an awesome ambience to your gathering.

Florida Room Chapel

This beautiful room is perfect for wedding ceremonies. Watch your dreams come true under the gorgeous canopy of chandeliers and domed lighting.

The Florida Room also serves well as a dance floor, or as a staging area, for larger events.

Regency Lounge

The stately Regency Lounge serves as a beverage center and pre-event waiting room during most events at the Kapok. Its mirrored bar and golden pyramid ceiling will set the tone for your event in a most elegant way.

Grape Room

This quaint room features a serene atmosphere, enhanced by beautiful overheard grapevine lighting. The Grape Room is a great place for a children's area — and serves perfectly as a buffet room during larger events.
