Fairy tale dreams come true at The Westin Sarasota

Wonderful experience working with Kelly Floyd and the entire events team at The Westin Sarasota. Being an out of town bride can make it harder to pick a venue sight unseen but after seeing photos of videos of the ballroom, I knew the Westin was the best choice in the area for our needs. Throughout the wedding planning process, Kelly was very communicative and flexible with all of our special requests and endless inquires. The wedding weekend went off without any issues and my husband and I along with all of our guests had such a wonderful time celebrating at The Westin.

Incredible

We had my daughters wedding here and it was beyond amazing!! Everyone was so accommodating and Kelly Floyd (the Director of Events) was incredible! We had a last minute change in our venue from a different location and she made sure everything went through flawlessly! The food was also the best wedding dinner we have ever had. Thank you so much Westin- I would recommend to any and all! #WestinWeddings
