Abby + Eric Step Into The Limelight | Sirata Beach Resort | St. Petersburg, FL

Abby and Eric met In April of 2017 when a mutual friend set them up on a blind date. Eric drove two hours to take Abby out for dinner and drinks. They hit it off right away and have now been together for over 2 years. One day, when they were on vacation in Punta Cana,  Eric got down on one knee and asked for Abby’s hand in marriage. Of course, she said yes! 

Eric and Abby both love to travel and love the beach. His family lives in Ohio, while Abby’s family lives in Illinois. They were going to have a wedding in Indianapolis as a central location, but when they realized Abby’s grandparents wouldn't be able to make a 2 hour drive, they both decided to have a small ceremony for them at home and then take off and get married on the beach with their closest family and friends in Florida. Since both Abby and Eric love the beach, Eric did some research on locations and made plans to call a few locations. They fell in love with Sirata Beach Resort. 

On the day of their wedding, Abby’s bridesmaids wore sunflower yellow dresses and the men were in gray and white outfits. Abby wore a beautiful, white gown and held the most colorful and lively bouquet of flowers. Each groomsmen had a different colored boutonniere and the bridesmaids had bold colored bouquets as well. The day was sunny with a clear blue sky. It was simply perfect for these two!

Grand opening of coffee shop, lobby bar, retail space, and expanding beach bar signals end of resort’s $4.8 million transformation

St. Pete Beach, FL. – May 3, 2019– The beautiful beaches of S. Pinellas has  new offerings for visitors and locals alike with the addition of PS Grind, Stamps, and the retail space on Gulf Blvd.  redeveloped by the owners of the property – TPG Hotels and Resorts.

May 17th from 9am until late, the Postcard Inn on the Beach will be celebrating the new offerings with all who chose to join in on the celebration.  The official ribbon cutting takes place at 9:15am with the Tampa Bay Beaches Chamber of Commerce.  P.S. Grind will offer free drip coffee and tastings of pastries and more.  Live entertainment, raffles and free giveaways planned throughout the day.  Free Parking while the spots last, one can spend the whole day enjoying all that the property has to offer.  Pool passes for the day, a free beach bbq with grilled hot dogs and hamburgers from noon until 1:30pm.  Half off all menus from open until close.  LocalShops1 is setting up a market in the beautiful garden area from noon until 5pm featuring local art, clothing, and more.  This is a teaser to launch the new night market beginning in June on the property.

PS Grind, featuring Kahwa coffee, has been designed with the locals in mind.  To start, there will be parking allocated to locals to swing by and grab their favorite brew and a bite to eat without having to pay for parking.  The open dining space will flow into the lobby space, allowing one to find a comfortable nook to read while sipping or munching on a pastry or salad.  If open air is what you’re looking for, you can step out to the balcony looking over the gorgeous green spaces facing the beautiful sandy beaches on the Gulf.  WiFi is available; guests plug in and relax while sipping on the best local brew with a view.  

Along with PS Grind, Postcard Inn is developing Stamps, a welcoming space that will feature bistro dining with amazing signature dishes and cocktails.  The prices are accommodating for almost any budget.
