Perfect setting for the most elegant wedding
We had our wedding at Powel Crosley last week and it was absolutely perfect! JoAnna was super helpful during the planning process as well as the on-site staff the day off. We rented extra hours so that the bridal party could get ready there and between the bridal suite and the library there was plenty of room for my large bridal party to hang out (9 bridesmaids, 3 flower girls, 2 mothers). The scenery is amazing and makes for the most elegant photos. The estate speaks for itself and our guests could not stop commenting on how beautiful it was. We lucked out with perfect weather. Highly recommend this venue!Sent on 04/01/2021

We were delighted to have you and your new husband celebrate your marriage at the Powel Crosley Estate. The photos are gorgeous. We wish you a very happy and love filled marriage!

My husband and I had our wedding on January 31st 2021 and everything was just as perfect as we imagined. All the onsite staff was super helpful and we were absolutely blown away about how beautiful the venue was. JoAnna was so amazing and always fast with responses, helping with any question my mom and I had and overall a huge blessing to be working with. I highly suggest booking your wedding at The Powel Crosley EstateSent on 02/24/2021

Beautiful & helpful
So happy I chose this venue for our wedding! It was beautiful and everyone was very courteous and kind. Very communicative during all the Covid rules changing constantly. The staff breaking everything down stopped what they were doing to help my mom find her phone she lost. They even were walking on the lawn looking in the grass in the dark.Sent on 06/15/2021
Powel Crosley Estate's reply:Hello Krystin! Thank you so much for the lovely review! We are so happy that you loved your wedding. You were a delight to work with and we wish you and your husband a lifetime of love and happiness.

The Powel estate helped us create our fairy tale wedding. We immediately fell in love with this venue and I’m SO glad we chose it! Joanna was wonderful to work with and she was so prompt with replies and flexibility once we had to move our date. Brides you HAVE to at least tour this place when looking at venues.Sent on 05/24/2021

Powel Crosley Estate is a one of a kind wedding venue. Nestled on a private lot on Sarasota Bay, it’s a perfect wedding setting! JoAnna and her staff were a pleasure to work with. Our daughter’s wedding evening there even included a visit from a mama and baby manatee. Multiple guests commented on the beauty of this venue:) Highly recommend!Sent on 05/01/2021

This is an INCREDIBLE venue. We loved planning our wedding here from the very beginning. The event rep that they assign to you is so on top of it, very helpful, and was extremely responsive to all of our questions. The best part was the alcohol bill. We had heard negative things and we were pretty worried because we have a mixed group of light and heavy drinkers, but we only went $4 over our deposit of $20 per person. The bartenders went above and beyond to treat our guests well and made sure they were very happy the whole time and had the exact drink in their hand that they wanted. Highly recommend this venueSent on 06/05/2012
Powel Crosley Estate's reply:Kelly - thank you for the kind words and thank you for selecting the Crosley Estate as your wedding venue!

Jessica · Married on 05/26/2019
I can’t say enough good things about the Powel Crosley! Not only is it the most gorgeous venue ever (I know, I’m biased) but the staff was so helpful and easy to work with. JoAnna and Anne were wonderful at making sure we had everything booked and detailed leading up to the event, and everything went so smoothly on the day off. They were always super accessible and easy to communicate with, especially with changing hours, alcohol orders, and adding items to our invoice. I’m so appreciative we chose to get married at the Crosley, it was truly a perfect day!Sent on 06/28/2019
Powel Crosley Estate's reply:Jessica - Thank you so much for the kind words. It was our pleasure to work with you! You event was stunning! Congratulations and best wishes!

Beautiful Wedding Venue
The Powel Crosley Estate is a gorgeous, wedding venue either for outdoor or indoor wedding. It has several beautiful spots where you can do a ceremony, inside it has bride's room and groom's room, beautiful balcony upstairs where you can do an incredible pictures and much much more. I highly recommend you to go to the site and see it's beauty yourself. One suggestion-book in advance, far in advance because weekends goes fast at this venue. Booking process and working with Powel Crosley event coordinators was easy and pleasant, we did not have any issues and our wedding day went completely perfect. We loved it!Sent on 06/25/2019
Powel Crosley Estate's reply:Olga, thank you very much for your review. It was a delight working with you!

Congratulations and best wishes, and thank you again for choosing the Powel Crosley Estate as your wedding venue!

A dream venue
This venue had everything I wanted. I knew it was the one before we even looked at it in person from photos alone. The weather we had was absolutely perfect and everyone took great care of us. I can’t thank everyone enough. Our guests continue to tell us ours is the best wedding they’ve been to! I wish I could get married here all over again! :) (photo credit: everence photography)Sent on 05/31/2019

We had been planning our wedding for well over a year. The big thing was to make sure we had the venue of our dreams. The Powel Crosely Estate did that and then some. Not only did the venue stick out because of how beautiful it was, the staff was extremely understanding, transparent, and helpful they were through the process. Anytime we had a question, they were always right there either with an answer or at least letting us know that he was looking into it and would get back to us as soon as possible. When it came to the day of the event the venue was absolutely perfect the staff was extremely helpful and almost all of the guests commented on how perfect the night was and how beautiful the venue was all set up. The staff of the Powel really helped make our day absolutely perfect so the we didn't have to worry about a thing. Words really can't do justice for the service that they provided but we thank youSent on 02/24/2019

Everything we could dream of and more!
From the moment we walked in to the Crosley, we knew it was the venue we had dreamed of! It provided us with everything we wanted and more. We had our ceremony on the Loggia and the reception dinner on the lawn and everything was absolutely perfect. While the Crosley can’t control the weather, we had a gorgeous Floria evening and the Crosley looks unreal with a beautiful sunset as the backdrop. Our contact, Samantha, was fantastic to work with and very responsive. In short, The Crosley was the venue of our dreams and staff were all extremely easy to work with and accommodating to make our day so special.Sent on 11/04/2018

The Powel Crosley Estate was the setting for our daughter’s recent wedding and reception in Sarasota. This was an absolutely magnificent and magical venue; an elegant and meticulously preserved mansion from the twenties, with a full open view of the Sarasota Bay. The staff at the Bradenton Area Convention Center, who manage the estate, were at all times, cordial, helpful and informative. We couldn’t have been more thrilled to host our guests at this fabulous venue!Sent on 05/15/2017

We could not have picked a more perfect venue at the Powel Crosley Estate! Our search for an indoor/outdoor, waterfront venue (that wasn't on a beach) began two years ago. We visited locations all over Florida from the Keys, to Boca Grande, to St. Petersburg, and our favorite venue was hands-down, the Powel Crosley. This Mediterranean-style, historic property sits on a beautiful lot of land. The driveway leading up the Estate is just enchanting, almost like you're entering a fairytale! Even before touring the inside of the Estate, we knew we found our match. Not only is this place stunningly beautiful, but it is very ideal for your guests. Over half of our guests were from out-of-town, and there's plenty of nearby accommodations, along with restaurants and activities in downtown Sarasota and St. Armand's Circle to keep them busy during their stay (also making for a plethora of rehearsal dinner venue options). There's parking at the venue, too. In our opinion, the best part of having our wedding at the Estate is that we got the entire property to ourselves for the day! Having a private and secluded event was very important for us considering we wanted an outdoor ceremony and reception.Sent on 05/10/2017
Our ceremony was beautiful, even though it lightly rained throughout. Our cocktail hour was inside, giving guests time to regroup. By the time our reception began, the overcast skies cleared to make way for a gorgeous sunset. It was more romantic than I ever dreamed. Our lighting over the patio and lawn looked amazing and really contributed to our overall theme. We loved our day so much, we wish we could relive it a million times over! Thank you to the staff at the Powel Crosley for a smooth, flawless, event and for your friendly and transparent customer service. It was such a joy to work with you all! I know our guests, and especially my husband and I will forever hold a dear memory in our hearts of this place and our absolutely perfect wedding!

Kimberly · Married on 03/19/2017
This venue was lovely! There isn't much that is needed to dress it up. I was able to get most of my questions answered early on, prior to being assigned my event manager 30 days out from the wedding. My event coordinator was Maribeth Liberty, and she was awesome to communicate with, either by phone or email or texts.Sent on 03/30/2017
If you'd like to tour the grounds, call and ask early so that you can get scheduled. This is not the type of place that you just drop by.
The Crosely handles all of the alcohol served on site and has their own bartender. The event manager was onsite to meet any vendors and supervise set ups and build outs. They also include in the rental several sizes and shapes of tables. Chairs, linens, and table settings must be rented through the catering company.
We have had so many compliments on the wedding venue! So many beautiful backdrops for lovely photographs. It couldn't have been a more perfect evening!

PERFECT! This is the most beautiful, romantic location for a wedding and the staff is excellent. The office was very prompt with communication prior to the wedding day. Maribeth was our on-site contact at PC and she was FANTASTIC. She was so kind, responsive and helpful from start to finish!!! It was hands down the best day of our lives. My family and friends could not believe how beautiful, fun and seamless everything was at PC…they are still raving about the beautiful venue! Thank you Maribeth and team for making our day SO PERFECT and special.

Stunning, absolutely stunning .. we live in Texas and were looking for a place to get married along the Gulf Coast of Florida .. I was very happy that the Powel Crosley popped up in my google searches .. our guests are still raving about the location and its history and how it overlooks the water and gives you such a majestic feeling .. It was the perfect place to get married .. you book the venue through the city .. the process was easy and they also provide a coordinator for the day of the wedding to manage the details related to the venue .. Overall great experience !!Sent on 05/29/2016
