My experience with the Ritz has been so perfect. They did everything I wanted for my wedding and more. Leigh Anne was my coordinator and she was amazing and always very easy to get in touch with. I’m so grateful for all of their hard work! The cake they made for us was to the detail exactly what we asked for.Sent on 05/26/2018

AMAZING!!!! I have planned my wedding with The Ritz Carlton and my coordinator there Megan Buncis, for a year and a half! Every step of the way was great with awesome service! They made me feel wanted and pampered always! :) Orlando has SO many wedding venues to select from but I know I selected the best one! The food, service and atmosphere is a dream! I would over and over again recommend this venue to any bride considering it! :) Thank you Ritz!Sent on 11/22/2016

We used both the Ritz Carlton and JW Marriott at Grande Lakes property (they share the same property) for our venue and it was fantastic. We worked with Michael from the Ritz Carlton and he did everything he could at all times to make my husband and I happy with our day, Sarah Selman also helped out with room blocking for our guests. Everything ran smoothly and if there was even the slightest hiccup in the road, the team was on it to make it right! A very good feeling to have on your wedding day. The groom and his brothers wanted to play a round of golf the day of the wedding and Michael coordinated everything for that so well. They set up a cake tasting that was AMAZING. This team really goes above and beyond what you expect and they have a smile on their faces the entire way through!Sent on 06/18/2015
Beautiful site, beautiful services, beautiful people! A+++!
The Ritz Carlton's staff and service are second to none. We have had the pleasure of performing for many events there over the years and we look forward to many more! - Ricky Sylvia & The Buzzcatz
I have worked on several weddings at the Ritz, and every time they KNOCK IT OUT OF THE PARK!
What a terrific venue - we have been working for this property since prior to their Grand Opening - 9 years and counting. Great service and wonderful staff. Happy Planning, Shannon Beautiful Music www.beautifulmusic.cc
