    Ritz Carlton Amelia Island will be a forever destination for us

    The resort and staff are the absolute best. The service from our wedding team- Bobby and Donna were the A- TEAM. They handled everything and we couldn't have asked for a more perfect day and weekend.

    My wife and I recently got married at The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island. When visiting their property for the first time we were greeted by Amanda Pelletier. She was so personable and friendly throughout the entire tour. Amanda painted such a beautiful picture that was exactly what we were looking for. After becoming so close to Amanda through multiple e-mail conversations and phone calls we were hesitant to be handed off to a new team. After meeting Christina Saldana and Donna however, it was quickly apparent we were in good hands. They anticipated our needs before we even asked and were quick to correct any changes we threw at them. Donna was exceptional and Christina went above and beyond. I especially loved how attentive she was to my wife. She checked on the entire brides party numerous times in our beautiful complimentary suite, and even escorted the party from the room all the way to the aisle. The ceremony was everything we imagined and more. When we saw the final picture brought together in the plaza ballroom for the reception, we were absolutely blown away. It was picturesque. The food was amazing and the staff was on point throughout service. I couldn't be happier we chose The Ritz-Carlton for our special day and we look forward to joining our family with theirs for many special occasions in years to come.

    We had a wonderful experience with the Ritz Carlton staff. We specifically worked with Erin Bledsoe in the sales team to finalize a contract. Our event coordinator was Christina Saldana, who is exceptional; we would recommend to insist on working with her if you decide to sign with the Ritz.

    The first thing that they'll have you do is work with their sales team and negotiate a package. What we wish that we did was to fully understand our food and beverage estimates instead of just understanding the minimums required. When you speak with the sales team have them work up a food and beverage estimate based on your expected guest count and include detailed cost for liquor estimates as well as your food estimates for each of your events.

    The Ritz Carlton at Amelia Island has done several Indian/Hindu weddings including ours. What they excel at is exceptional planning, attention to detail, and service. We felt fully taken care of at each step of our wedding planning process. When it came time to execute the events everything was set into motion swiftly and smoothly and any bumps in the road were quickly corrected.

    The food at the Ritz Carlton is exceptional. They have a dedicated Indian chef, Anshu Jain, who knows how to craft unique dishes that are beautifully presented. you will be required to work with their culinary and pastry team who will not let you down.

    If peace of mind is at the top of your priorities then doing a wedding at the Ritz Carlton is what we'd recommend.
