    Beautiful venue

    The Bay Preserve is such a beautiful venue. Our entire wedding took place outside on the property and everything was perfect. Sam, the event coordinator, was great to work with and easily accessible. I am from out of state, and Sam accommodated me by letting me ship to the venue in the week leading up to my wedding which was so helpful.

    This place is a hidden gem! If you are looking for the "old Florida" charm for your wedding, this is the most gorgeous setting I've ever laid my eyes on. Gilly Francis was such a delight to work with from day one. She was very helpful with sending vendor lists, gave us tips and ideas and was there on the big day to make sure everything ran smoothly. The weather was perfect that day and we couldn't ask for more for a wedding ceremony. If we could we would have planned to have both our ceremony and reception there because it was so beautiful! This venue is also perfect for so many photo options. Thank you Gilly!!

    This is by far the most beautiful venue in/near Sarasota, FL for an outdoor wedding and/or reception. Their on-site coordinator Gilly Francis is a joy to work with, and the exclusive caterer Michael's on East is the absolute best in Sarasota. The historic home on the property, the trees draped with Spanish moss, the Roman-style stage, and the sunset over the water provide endless combinations of gorgeous backdrops for your photos and of course, add to the joy of your experience. It is best for between 75 - 175 guests. We booked almost a year in advance for our Nov. 1st wedding. Visit first -- you will not be disappointed!
