    The best hidden gem in the Sarasota area!

    We could not have been happier with our experience with Bay Preserve at Osprey for our March wedding. Everything was beyond perfect from our very first meeting until we left the night of our wedding. This is truly a hidden gem in the Sarasota area and I am so happy we were able to find it. The outdoor area is so picturesque, you don't even need a lot of decor for the space to shine. The venue also offers multiple layout options - the world is really your oyster in terms of set-up.

    Sam Valentin - the event coordinator - was so extremely helpful, responsive and flexible anytime we had any questions or concerns. The venue is really willing to work with you. I wanted to get in a little earlier in order to get ready on-site and they were able to accommodate. Also, one of my favorite aspects of the venue is that they only do one wedding a weekend, so you also automatically have your rehearsal time locked in for the day before. I think that is a huge plus compared to some of the other venues in the area.

    They make sure to groom and maintain the property that very day so it is picture perfect shape for your day too!

    Michael's on East is the exclusive caterer, and although a little on the pricier side, they are the best in town and I was thrilled to work with them. Plus, they know the space SO well!

    My recommendation to anyone looking for a venue in this area - LOOK HERE! The space is truly magical and we could not have been happier!

    Perfect ceremony spot!

    Look no further!! Bay Preserve is the perfect spot for a ceremony. It has that old Florida charm with a beautiful water front setting. The house was wonderful for the bridal party to get ready! Sam was so accommodating and made sure the whole day ran smoothly. There were so many amazing places for photos!!!!

    Beautiful in every way!

    Bay preserve was an absolutely beautiful place to get married! The setting is breath taking and the people are so nice and accommodating. Our guests were in awe with how gorgeous of a setting it was being outdoors on the water under the string lights. It was romantic in every way and a dream come true for a wedding venue !
