Everything and More
From the moment we met with the event manager at the Westin, we knew this was the place. The venue is new, clean, and located in the downtown area by the gulf. The picturesque backgrounds from any angle provides perfect back drops to the photos, along with natural light for perfect make up application (which to this bride was very important!)! Every person who was involved from the venue was absolutely wonderful and made themselves available. From email to personal cell phone numbers, the staff was fully vested in making sure the day was perfect. The venue has marquees throughout where they put up selected photos of us which enabled guests to know where and when the event took place. The rooftop ceremony at sunset was incredible and the staff relocated 100 chairs to the magnificent Triton Ballroom. Can you say stunning? Because that is how the ballroom looked. Every idea, every thought- every detail mentioned throughout the planning came to life. It was absolutely perfect. This venue goes above and beyond in every way to ensure the absolute best possible outcome on your wedding day. I couldn’t imagine getting married anywhere else.Sent on 10/25/2018

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!Sent on 08/27/2018

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.

Director of Catering and Event Management
I am a native New Yorker with an outgoing and energetic personality. Growing up in New York I have always had an eye for design and culture. Whether it be the architecture of the Plaza Hotel, or the feeling of knowing you are just steps away from Times Square. Growing up in this environment gave me everything I needed to immerse myself within the culture that surrounded me. As soon as I was able, I was mixing and mingling and learning everything I needed to know about my profession.
Now, with 20+ years of experience in the Food and Beverage and event planning/management. I'm driven in my profession and I do not shy away from a challenge! Food and Beverage is all about gusto and that's something I learned at an early age I have plenty of. However, my goals are healthy, and I understand that to be successful, it is also important to build a strong team. I depend upon my team as much as they depend upon me. This is why it is so important to work together as one and develop our skills, no matter where we are on our journey. Whether a server, or a manager, one cannot exist without the other.
