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!
