    Westin of Sarasota is the best! The entire team did such a great job on our 25th Wedding Celebration. Our event coordinator, Lauren made everything run so smoothly & allowed us to just sit back & enjoyed the night. It was well worth it!

    I recently hosted the wedding for our son & new daughter in-law on Saturday, August 11th at the WESTIN Sarasota.
    First, despite of weather (we had to change the venue at 10:00 AM from the roof top to 6th floor), we had a beautiful ceremony. With wonderful teamwork between Jennifer Mateo, our wedding planner & Lauren Venable, Westin Catering, they implement the contingency plan without missing a beat. It was stress free for me!

    Lauren Venable has been my main contact to complete our contracts on catering events, etc, with assistance from Nicole Green on overnight accommodations. With many guests from out of the state, we hosted Sunset Welcome on Friday Night at the Roof Top with various flat breads & salad bar & wine & beer! We had a reception immediately following the wedding ceremony, followed by the brunch from 12-2 pm. As I was not familiar w/ many vendors, I worked closely with Lauren & Jennifer for music, catering, cake, and other needs. I enjoyed my interactions with Lauren for her professionalism, prompt follow-through, and flexibility. I would recommend Lauren & Westin Sarasota for event planning without any hesitation. Food was excellent based on our Friday Sunset Welcome & Saturday Wedding Brunch package. Moreover, I would like to recognize “staff” who serviced our sunset event on Friday, 8/10 at Roof top, and again at the wedding brunch buffet on 8/11. They were excellent, to details & customer care.
