highly recommend the Ritz-Carlton Beach Club!

I cannot say enough wonderful things about the Ritz-Carlton Sarasota as a wedding venue. We were married at the Ritz-Carlton Beach Club in March 2022 and had 70 guests, and our Ritz-Carlton contact (Heather) as well as the rest of the Ritz-Carlton staff were exceptional. Heather was incredibly helpful, responsive, and an overall pleasure to work with throughout the entire wedding process. We did not hire an outside wedding planner, and my husband and I were both the first of our siblings to get married, so we really did not know anything about weddings when we started the process! Although Heather was ultimately only responsible for our venue, she answered so many questions for us and helped guide us through the entire wedding process. She was so patient and kind. On the day of our wedding, Heather helped make sure that everything with our vendors was set up so we didn’t have to worry about that while we were getting ready. Also, the experience that Heather and the Ritz-Carlton staff gave us for our tasting and planning meeting (we were from out of state) was unbelievable!
Many of our guests have mentioned that the food (we did the South of the Border buffet) was the best wedding food they have ever had. And, of course, the views are unmatched. Thank you, Heather and the entire Ritz-Carlton Sarasota team for making our wedding weekend perfect! We can’t wait to come back for our anniversary next spring!
