Perfect venue in the perfect location!

I don't know where to start- but I have to say that Gwen is an ABSOLUTE angel on earth. From the moment we met Gwen and toured the venue, we knew we had found the place and our event coordinator. We immediately fell in love with the Harbourside lawn and ballroom, and of course, Gwen. Her communication throughout our year of planning was impeccable and she never let me stress one thing! She answered emails almost immediately, and she made sure our wedding went on without a hiccup. Part of the reason we loved this place so much was because of her, she is a HUGE asset to the Longboat Key Club. Everything about this place was beautiful, including our ocean front bridal suite. From the ceremony on the lawn overlooking the marina, to cocktail hour on the terrace, to dinner in the ballroom- I wish we could get married here all over again. Would HIGHLY recommend!! :)

Incredible place!

I could not recommend this vendor more! The team at Longboat Key Club was phenomenal and Gwen was an absolute delight to work with! She helped us bring our vision to life and was incredibly responsive throughout the entire process. There was a slight hitch with the room for my parents the night before, and made up for it with MANY MANY goodies and extras. Our guests loved the venue and it was overall the best day of our lives. We couldn't have been more pleased with the venue and the experience. Thank you to Gwen and the entire team for the incredible weekend!

The Best Weekend of our Lives!

From the very beginning, Gwen with the resort was incredibly accommodating and kind to us. She ensured that we could make the wedding work around our budget and helped us plan from out of state. Planning from out of state can be stressful, but Gwen made it so easy! The wedding itself was absolutely GORGEOUS. We were so blessed with the beautiful day that it was, and it couldn't have come together without her and the team at the resort. Thank you so much for everything LBKC - we will most definitely be back!

Ayla and the wedding team at the Longboat Key Club were an absolutely joy to work with! They definitely went the extra mile for our brides. The beach here is very easy to access for wedding days, and the natural dune area makes a beautiful backdrop for wedding photography. The rooms look great for getting ready photos- with large windows and balconies that give you and your bridesmaids plenty of space to start your wedding day in style. I also loved the harborside ballroom- with its cocktail lawn, large verandas for seating and the indoor space has a beautiful open beam ceiling. I can't wait to work with the Longboat Key Club team again this summer!
