    Curreri/Mitchell wedding

    The Zota Beach Resort was Amazon. I came from out of town so I did everything on the phone. Crystal was absolutely fabulous putting everything together for me. The food was Amazon couldnt get enough of it and Stefanie from Swanky Soiree Events was fabulous as well she made the hall outstanding between. And made sure what ever I need I got, between the both of them there were no hiccups I would definitely recommend them to anybody that is throwing any kind of party especially a wedding the staff was wonderful as well thank you so much for everything.

    The beach wedding of my dreams!

    Zota was the PERFECT location for our perfect beach wedding. We wanted something where our guests could all stay together and have the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception all right next to each other so no one would have to worry about transportation. And trust me, THIS IS IT! The hotel itself is one of my favorites. Even the worst room is beautiful and has a balcony. Our guests all wished they stayed longer no matter how long they stayed. We had postponed our wedding a full year so in a situation where the planning could've been chaotic, the Zota team was so understanding and worked so well with us. We planned the whole thing from New York and they made it all go so smoothly. And when it was finally wedding day, wow, this beach is the nicest beach I've ever been on! We had a gorgeous day and didn't have to move anything inside. The reception area was outside in the sand and was better than I ever could have imagined. We originally planned for 150 which definitely would've fit but it was nice when our number turned out to be 112. Seemed perfect for the space with plenty of room for dancing. And the food was fantastic! I cannot say enough good things about this venue. I so badly want to do it all over again!!!
