    Most Amazing Venue With A Staff To Match!! Brigid Will Make Your Wedding Day Special

    Words cannot describe just how truly enamored and overjoyed I am with being able to have Le Meridien as our wedding home. The venue stunned us with its beauty from the first time we saw it, but then once we met with Brigid, we just hoped there was a way we could have our wedding there and sure enough, Brigid made it happen!
    She was so incredibly accommodating and worked with us through the entire process. From the first time we viewed the venue, up until the day after our wedding, Bridgid and her team were phenomenal! She answered every single question, a there were a LOT of them, explained all of our options and worked with us when things changed throughout. I always felt like she was genuine, and everyone had our best interests in mind; which is what you need when you’re planning a wedding. I heard horror stories and just kept thinking this was too good to be true, there’s no way a venue and staff could be THAT good to us; but they never faltered.
    Brigid and the event staff made every dream that we had come true, every detail that we wanted they accommodated it, and most of all, made it stress free for us. We felt like we were the only wedding there and were always available for us.
    When our wedding day came, May 25th, we were elated with the attention, catering team, and how everything was beyond what we imagined. Brigid even printed my vows out for me because my copy got lost in the mix of things!
    Everything went off without any mistakes and all of the guests raved about how beautiful the venue was, they loved the chef attended stations and bartenders and just how overall nice and welcoming everyone was.
    My husband and I can’t thank Brigid, the event and catering team, chefs and everyone involved enough for making our special day truly a dream come true. We have been back several times since to the Bizou bar for HH just so we can see everything and everyone again. We’ll never forget just how amazing our wedding was because of them.
    We highly recommend Le Meridien Tampa to anyone who will listen!

    Our Perfect Wedding Day

    Our wedding day was everything we could have hoped for and more. Brigid and her team were amazing from start to finish. We enjoyed working with her so much! Le Meridien exceeded our expectations and gave us the most perfect wedding. Our guests are still talking about how unique and beautiful the venue is and how great the food was. The hotel was a great place for our family and guests to stay. We loved the bridal suite and the convenience of staying and getting ready on site was a huge factor in our selection of Le Meridien. We were able to do a lot of custom details to make the day a true reflection of the couple that we are, it felt like the possibilities were endless. Planning was a breeze with Brigid. She was responsive, helpful and so friendly! Our ceremony on the front steps was so unique, cocktail hour by the pool was intimate and the ballroom reception was absolutely beautiful and perfectly executed to our exact vision. My husband, parents and I could not be more pleased with our experience with Le Meridien and highly recommend it as a wedding venue for couples are looking for a downtown, city feeling wedding with a historic but modern Tampa element.

    My wedding venue

    I could not have imagined a more beautiful, natural backdrop for our wedding day. The historic Le Meridien’s Bisou marble walls were the key element in the design theme for our wedding, and the courthouse steps are a sight to behold. It was the perfect setting for our wedding, the bar and restaurant were intimate, but large enough to accommodate all of our guests, and the courthouse steps with grand columns made for the most beautiful ceremony backdrop. Brigid in Catering was a dream to work with, and the entire staff did an amazing job, not only servicing the wedding, but helping to keep our surprise wedding a secret! I would highly recommend using this unique venue for an event, and I look forward to working with them again.
