Located behind Bud & Alley’s, you access the sugar-white sands of Seaside Beach through the iconic Michael McDonough-designed Coleman Pavilion also referred to as the Obelisk or Obe Pavilion by many residents and long-term visitors. The unique shape and strong presence of the tallest beach pavilion in Seaside provides a grand entrance point for a sunset wedding on the beach.

A beachfront icon nestled among the sand dunes, gulf front in Seaside’s famous town center, The Seaside Pavilion is a covered venue overlooking the Gulf of Mexico’s beautiful emerald waters and crystal white sand. Designed by architect Eric Watson, the Seaside Pavilion offers a simple, elegant space for guests to enjoy overlooking the natural beauty of the coast.

The Tupelo Gazebo was built in 1984 and was Seaside’s first public building. Many of Seaside’s first public meetings took place in the Tupelo Gazebo. The town founders Robert and Darryl Davis were married in the Tupelo Gazebo. The Tupelo Gazebo also has its claim to fame in its famous scene in "The Truman Show" where Jim Carrey has panic set in and begins to drive around and around and around the small Gazebo.
Never before available to the public, the Tupelo Gazebo is now available through Homeowner's Collection for smaller intimate weddings.

Tupelo Pavilion and Beach
When first conceived, the original design and concept were to have the beach access pavilions to serve as a gateway to the beach designed by award-winning architects. Tupelo Street Beach Pavilion was designed by renowned architect Ernesto Buch. Tupelo Pavilion was the first public pavilion of Seaside, Florida. “It is based on a cube,” Buch says. “In detailing and form, it is evocative of American wooden Palladian architecture, and thus it is part of a long vernacular tradition.”

Seaside greets travelers with a warm welcome – and you’ll recognize it as soon as you see it. Perfectly pastel houses, white picket fences and manicured lawns look like they’re straight out of a movie. (And, in fact, they are – The Truman Show was filmed here.)
Stroll or bike your way between restaurants, art galleries and boutique shops, or connect with family and friends at the central square.
