Perfect and Beautiful Emerald Bay Wedding
I began helping to plan my daughter's wedding over two years ago. We ended up booking a venue that we thought was perfect not only for the location, but also largely based on the fact that we 'clicked' with the event manager that we met and she made us feel that she was going to make our wedding perfect. Without going into a lot of detail, I can tell you that our event manager left that venue prior to our wedding and as we continued to work with that venue and the new event coordinators, we knew something wasn't right. After a number of issues, we felt we needed to search for a new venue and decided to take a look at the Gaylord Palms. While we have lived in Orlando for nearly 21 years, we had never taken the time to go out and view the resort. As we started to investigate, we found that the event manager we clicked so great with was now working at the Gaylord Palms. To me - that showed me that things were meant to be and we selected the Emerald Bay Plaza at the Gaylord to be our venue. From that moment on, we were so impressed with not only the most professional staff, but the caring and attention that they give to make sure your event was perfect. They offered a variety of options for not only the ceremony venue, but also the cocktail hour and the reception locations. Some of the decisions were so hard to make because every option they gave was phenomenal.Sent on 04/11/2021
The ceremony in the Emerald Bay couldn't have been more perfect and our guests absolutely loved the cocktail hour in the Fort. By far though my favorite part was walking into the Osceola ballroom and seeing how beautiful the reception hall had been set up. Everyone at the Gaylord Palms made us feel like royalty, from the valet team, to the front desk personnel, the wait staff at the Wreckers sports bar and all of the servers at both the cocktail hour and in the reception, but it was Jessica Arnold and her event staff that made this an event of a lifetime for us.
As exhausting as it was to plan and execute this perfect wedding, I am sad that it is over because working with Jessica and her team has been such a big part of our lives for the past year. I can't recommend this team and this venue any higher than 5 STARS but if I could, I would. They are simply the best.

Stunning Venue and First Class Custom Experience
This is a stunning and elegant venue with multiple options. The photos of it really don't do it justice. Go and see it! Our wedding guests were WOWED by it. It has the unique advantage more than any other venue I've seen in that its lush landscape with waterfalls, caves, and gorgeous greenery gives the look and feel of being outdoors. Yet, you are inside under a beautiful glass atrium so all the natural light can come in. You don't have to be worried about weather or heat issues here because you're inside. If you visit their spaces, you will fall in love with them and see how amazing they are. We worked with Nina and Jessica. Both of them worked tirelessly and were very professional. They were attentive to our every need and gave us a beautiful first class custome experience. I really cannot say enough good words about them because they met my very high standard and expectations! I researched many options in this area. There are none who can match the beauty and first class service this one offers.Sent on 09/02/2020

Words cannot describe my happiness!
Where to start. Gaylord Palms is such a beautiful venue. Since everything is inside, you don't have to worry about weather at all! They provide so many different options for ceremony locations and cocktail hour. We had our ceremony in the Wedding Pavilion and our Cocktail Hour in the Fort. We then chose the Orange Blossom Ballroom for our Reception. The ballroom has gorgeous stained glass ceiling lights and looks amazing all done up.
Every staff member was amazing. From our initial contact, to touring the venue, and planning with Liz; it was all so effortless. Liz was a godsend for me! She went way above and beyond anything I could have imagined. She was always there to answer ALL of my questions and liaise with other departments onsite to get me answers.
Our wedding was EXACTLY how I imagined it and everything went off without any problems. I'm so happy we chose Gaylord Palms for our special day!Sent on 12/27/2018
