    As it has now been a little over a week since my wedding at the Straz Center, I still can't seem stop thinking about how incredible of an experience it was and how my envision of every minute of my wedding came to life. The ceremony was held under the tent, overlooking the Riverwalk, cocktail hour by the fountains during sunset on the Riverwalk and the reception was held at Maestro's upstairs. Everything about the venue is gorgeous for an early evening wedding, including all of the places perfect for photo ops. The food was also amazing - especially the chicken florentine! Now regarding the staff - they were awesome every step of the way! Christine was the absolute best, so accommodating, direct, always available, very flexible, and professional. Her team was also by my side every step of the way on the day of. They did everything they could, never telling me it wasn't possible. One of them even sewed a garter on my leg when I realized I had forgotten mine! If any fires occurred, which a few did, they were quick to handle, before I could even worry. My wedding was all it was, simply because of the place I chose to get married. The Straz and it's staff exceeded all of my expectations.

We love designing weddings at The Straz Center. Nikki Jordan is one of the most organized representatives I have had the pleasure of working with. The venue is absolutely beautiful and the banquet staff and Chef are impeccable. Guests love the gorgeous setting and riverwalk view. Photos are always memorable!
