Elegance, sophistication, fun – we have the wedding planners and coordinators to bring your dream to life!

We specialize in outdoor wedding ceremonies and receptions at the finest Sarasota venues including the Powerl Crosley Estate, Marie Selby Gardens, Ringling, Phillippi Estate, South Florida Musuem, New College and others.

We will manage the your destination wedding and reception (with guests accommodations and entertainment); select and coordinate with our Wedding Pros and tie up all of the final details for the wedding.

Our Wedding showroom features the latest trends in linens, chairs, décor, drapery, lighting and chill lounges. Inside each showroom are the true interior colors of the most popular reception venues, so instead of designing your vision with linen swatches and tiny photographs, you can see it complete, live and before the big day. Our showrooms feature the Powel Crosley Estate, tSelby Gardens, and Philippi Estate.

Give us your vision; and we will create the lists! Read less

My daughter's wedding was held at the Powell Crosley Estate in June and we used Sarasota Wedding Gallery and Milan Catering for all of the wedding planning as well as catering. As you can see from the 5 star review, we couldn't have been happier with both the wedding planning and the catering. From the first phone call to Alexis to the last moment at the end of the evening of the wedding, everything that my daughter, son in law and I had dreamed of became a reality. Alexis has the patience of a saint when dealing with long distance brides and mother of the brides. We were only able to visit Sarasota once before the wedding, which resulted in many emails and phone calls. Every request, whether big or small was met with professionalism and always a positive attitude. Alexis is the calm in the middle of a storm! She was able to keep us on track and always with a smile. All of our guests literally came from all over the US and we are still getting comments on how wonderful the wedding was. Thank you Alexis for creating a memory of a lifetime!

Our day-of event planner and catering service was excellent! First when putting together the proposal she pulled together dinner recommendations she made after speaking with me. Others I called told me to choose from their website event after getting my preferences. Milan making the initial suggestions and alternatives helped a lot. The event planner had a lot of great suggestions and recommendations as well for the wedding. She too helped set-up all items I brought day of and made sure everything went smoothly. Everyone knew what to do and when to do it. This made my wedding day very stress-free. Well worth it!

I got married at the Crosley Estate this past April. We chose Milan Catering and I had the pleasure of working with Alexis Alexander. One of the services that Sarasota Wedding Gallery provides is day of wedding coordination. At first, I did not think that I would need one. I had done a lot of planning and preparing on my own, but TRUST me when I say that you will want it! I decided about 2 months out, that I wanted to hire Alexis and it was the best decision that I could have made. She was there to help me plan all of the final details and helped put my mind at ease before the big day! On our wedding day, she arrived early, coordinated with all of our vendors, and helped guide and direct our day. When I arrived to the mansion and saw Alexis, I knew that our wedding was going to be just perfect. She is professional, thoughtful, and is amazing at what she does. I am thankful that I chose Sarasota Wedding Gallery to help make my dream wedding come true! 

We planned a destination wedding for our daughter, Nan. She and her fiance lived in Austin Texas, we lived in Tallahassee, Florida and the wedding site was Sarasota, Florida. I immediately decided we needed a Wedding Planner to assist us. The best thing I ever did was to select Alexis Alexander as our wedding planner. She worked around everyone's schedules over a 9 month period of planning. She was respectful and thoughtful about the needs of our blended family. She made time for us to come at "key moments" to make on site decisions. She guided us towards selecting the Powel Crosley Estate, which was picture perfect for our daughter's 1920's theme wedding. She suggested excellent vendors for floral, catering, transportation, hotel stays and any other items we needed for the day. Finally, we had a picture perfect day that made our daughter and her husband very happy. She made sure none of us had a "care in the world" on the day of the wedding so we could all enjoy our moments as a family. Thank you Alexis. What a true pleasure to work with you.

You know how everyone always says "prepare for something to go wrong" at you wedding? Well you never know how great of a coordinator you have until you find out that something did go wrong and you didnt even know it! I worked with Alexis from the Gallery and she is AMAZING!!!!!
One of my guests ended up needing to go to the hospital. Yes thats right, every brides nightmare. Ambulance, stretcher, the whole nine. But Alexis made sure the paramedics showed up with NO lights NO sound and not a word to the Bride or Groom and we were completely clueless which is what needed to happen to ensure we still had an amazing day. Other than a tiny group none of our guests had a clue either.

I was a very stressed out bride leading up to things, but on that day I felt completely at ease because Alexis was there and she was on top of everything! That girl worked! She was running around for hours and hours... I was amazed. She kept us on track, there were several times when I had guest after guest wanting photos and I had yet to step in for dinner... she made sure I was seated and FED without being interrupted. There are so many reasons I would recommend Alexis and Sarasota Wedding Gallery but from one bride to another I can just say the best part was I was able to enjoy my day. One of my best memories from the day was when Alexis lined me up at the top of the stairs to walk down, her words of encouragement calmed me completely and at that point I knew hiring her was probably the best decision we made in this process.

We just got married at the Powel Crosley in February. One of the first vendors we hired was Sarasota Wedding Gallery and Alexis Alexander was our wedding coordinator. I live local but all my family is up north so I felt better having a coordinator. We highly recommend her, she is AMAZING. Most of my vendors came from her recommendation and we could not have been any happier with the outcome of our beautiful day! I was nervous when I arrived to the Crosley that morning, but within moments of talking to her I felt ready to go. Everything arrived on time and was set up beautifully. She would continue to check on me and my groom to make sure we were eating and had everything we needed. She was running around all day, not in a crazy way but in a professional getting things done way! The day and night ran perfectly, we just can not say enough fabulous things about her, we love her!!! Thank you Alexis for helping us make this day even more special for us and all of our guests!! We highly recommend her for your upcoming weddings, you will not regret the choice!!!

Our wedding was held at the Powel Crosley on Jan 12 and we were lucky and fortunate enough to be working with Alexis Alexander. She helped plan our wedding in 6 months from beginning to end. We would not have it any other way. Alexis answered every question we had very promptly and brought up things we would have never thought or knew about. The gallery at the office is very useful to help visualize the type of linens and table setting. It made it easier to make decisions and know how the wedding will look. Our wedding went without a single hiccup and was flawless. Alexis made sure everything was the way we liked it on the day of our wedding and she kept us hydrated and feed throughout the day. We keep wanting to relive the day over and over. Every vendor Alexis recommended matched our style and personality. We would highly recommend her for your wedding if you want it to be memorable and perfect.

I just got married at the Powel Crosley in Sarasota, FL on 10/20. This was a destination wedding for us and we used Alexis as our day-of wedding coordinator. She was phenomenal. I can't say enough praise about her. I could not have planned a destination wedding from so far away without her assistance. She provided a list of top notch vendors to help narrow down my search from the beginning. She then helped answer multiple questions along the way and was a tremendous help with organization prior to the wedding in anticipating schedules and lists of wedding props that I would have never even thought of. The wedding day itself went so smoothly and she was always there keeping us on schedule and packing up things so they were ready for us at the end. I highly recommend them and Alexis especially!!

Alexis was wonderful and she did so much to make it the perfect reception/party. She was great on the day of the wedding but before the wedding she was on top of everything and was answering questions we had not thought of asking. From the first time I spoke with Alexis, she inspired confidence in me. Alexis sent us pictures and really listened to what the bride was trying to do. It would have been easy to sit back and do what we asked, but Alexis kept showing us how to get the look and feel we wanted with suggestions for decor, other vendors and sharing what would or wouldn't work. She had ideas and gently guided us through all the details that go with a party for 200.

I actually was able to enjoy myself, which didn't seem possible as the mother of the bride. Despite the cold and wind, I felt relaxed enough to dance and eat and everything went as smoothly as she promised. The guests were in awe and my dad referred to her as scurrying around like a squirrel...she was everywhere at once. The part, however, that I dreaded the most was the clean up afterwards. I was stunned when so much of it was already done by the time the party ended, thanks to Alexis. She was still there when I left with my car full of the DIY stuff. Amazing!

I can't thank her enough on behalf of my family and more particularly, the bride and groom.

It was all taken care of and everything was perfect! Thank you!

We worked with Alexis in preparation as well as day-of coordination for our wedding at the Powel Crosley Estate. She was AWESOME and took over so much of the many little things I had planned to be dealing with at the rehearsal and on the wedding day. She really took charge of our group to make sure everyone knew what they needed to do and where they needed to be. She was sooooooo helpful the day of the wedding. She went above and beyond with all of our DIY decorations and making sure things were set up beautifully. My mother also told me that a bird had had an accident on one of the tables (outdoor reception) and she ran to have the linens laundered and returned in time!!! Incredible! She was also so helpful in packing everything up and loading our car that night. She was so professional, responsive and detail oriented. We really had such a great experience with her and I would recommend her to anyone. Thanks Alexis!!!

My daughter got married at powell crosley on 10/7/12. We had the Sarasota Wedding Gallery organize all the planning as far as table settings, organizing of vendors, etc. We had dealt with a couple of different planners over the year - which were all excellent and very helpful. The day of the wedding - we were blessed to have Alexis working with us. SHe was AMAZING. From 11 AM to 11:30 pm. She had everything planned to a tee!!!! Everything went on as scheduled - with no problems arising. She was very helpful, consciencious, courtious and kept us all informed as things were happening. The girls epecially liked her little "Bag" she had that contained anything from bandaids, advil, immodium, etc. Whatever anyone needed she just pulled it out of her bag - like a magician. Everyone complemented on how great she was and how helpful she was to everyone there - wedding and guests alike. We truly would recommend Alexis to plan your wedding or special event. SHe was awesome!!!!!

I am writing to offer my unreserved recommendation for Alexis Alexander and The Sarasota Wedding Gallery. This recommendation is LONG overdue and my husband and I apologize greatly for our untimely response.

Alexis Alexander was an integral contributor in every facet of our recent wedding on October 7th, 2012. I want to personally thank her for her dedication, creativity and service. At the beginning of the day I considered her my Event Planner, but by the end she became a trusted friend. We seemed to weave a perfect pattern, and when she told me not to worry, I believed her because I knew I was in good hands. Alexis took care of things just as I would, and allowed my husband, family and myself to enjoy the celebration.

There are several stories that I can share with you that display how devoted Alexis is to her Bride and Groom. One story in particular stands out for me because it was at that moment that Alexis showed how kindhearted she is towards her clients. While waiting to walk down the aisle to marry the love of my life, I broke down in tears. Alexis was there to provide a "pre-marriage" pep talk so I was at ease. She continued to wipe my tears and blot my face, ensuring that I looked perfect. Her sincerity, good judgment, and grace truly made her my personal confidant at that moment, and for the rest of the evening.

We felt like Alexis Alexander and The Sarasota Wedding Gallery was our personal wedding insurance policy. Every time we hit a barricade, she was there to save us and keep us moving in the right direction. Everyone says that something will go wrong on your wedding day, and it did. We never knew of the issues until the next day because Alexis was able to smooth things over casually and professionally. She was an outstanding wedding planner; kindhearted, professional, organized, compassionate, creative, warm, and a complete joy to work with. We cannot thank her enough for all that she did to make our day the best day of entire lives.

We originally hired Sarasota Wedding Gallery for "day of" coordination, thinking that although we had the planning pretty much under control, it would be nice to have a go to for all the of the vendors on the wedding day.

My husband and I were lucky enough to be paired with Jaedyn who truly went above and beyond in every way. She of course called and confirmed all of the vendors, but it was the way she handled all of the little detailes on the wedding day that was so impressive and truly a life savor!! From bustling my dress after the ceremony, to getting us bottles of water during the pictures, to finding the flowers the hotel never delivered to the room, to repinning my hair throughout the evening, to pinning my bustle back up after a friend stepped on my dress on the dance floor ripping all of the loops off, she was there the entire time. Those were just a few of the things I was even aware of!! I know she was hard at work behind the scenes as well. Having her there allowed myself, my husband and our family and friends to relax and enjoy the best day of our lives.

I wish there was a way to express how grateful my husband and I are that we had Jaedyn and the Sarasota Wedding Gallery there with us. I would urge any bride to consider them for wedding planning and/or day of services, trust me you will so happy you did!!

So.. if you don't visit the gallery.. you really can't get any idea of what amazing decor items are out there to rent! I wanted more of a vintage classic look - and by the way, I am sick of seeing gold chivari chairs; the gallery had such HUGE selection of alternatives, I really could design my look. AND the Linens - OMG!. Our first event planner left, but I went down, met the other 3 ladies; and just clicked with Shaina, who is really a sweetheart and was so helpful as DOC.. I had no worries and just had a perfect day.

Tryng to plan a wedding so far away is stressful; but after I found the Gallery; I knew I was in good hands. Kala was very responsive to my emails and arranged all of the venders for me to visit on my once only trip over before the wedding visit. Her knowledge of St. Petersburg, FL was invaluable and her top venders were very professional. After my visit to the gallery, I see why they are so organized. Their rooms have each interior of the St. Petersburg event halls, so it was easy to create the right look and visually see how it gets put together. During the day of our wedding, everything ran like clockwork. I just enjoyed my day! I would highly recommend them to any bride planning a destination wedding.

The Week Before!!!! Panic can not describe me; I got on the phone and started down the list of wedding planners. The thrid phone call was the Gallery, and when they heard my story, and responded with "no worries", I knew I had found the right ones. They all jumped in, special Kudos to Kala for leading them to pull it all together. My wedding day was PERFECT - I owe it to the wonderful team at the Gallery.

Kim did excellent job as being my coordinator. She was there at the rehearsal with me and took control with our wedding party. We had 17 in the wedding party so to get through the rehearsal someone needed to take control and she did. On the big day she was there to help pin flowers on make sure I was ok and breathing and everyone else okay. While I was getting ready she was helping my husband because his tux wasn't fitting, well she did a great job at hidding it from me so I wouldn't get stressed. I didn't hear about it until the reception from my husband. She gave my husband tissues for the ceremony to hold onto to give to me for when I cried, and she wiped my tears away just before I went down the aisle and told me to take a deep breath. She is good! She knows what she is doing and how to keep a bride not stressed and calm. Thank You!

I had the most wonderful experience working with Sarasota Wedding Gallery. Working with Kim was a true pleasure. She understood from the beginning what we wanted and what our budget was. She never tried to pressure us into ordering anything more expensive or more than we needed. She did everything she could to keep our cost down and help us create a beautiful event! I don't know what I would have done without Kim the week of the wedding. The weather started looking like it was going to be close to freezing and she calmed me down as I sent her emails worrying about needing heaters and a tent. The day of was much colder than we anticipated but she was great at problem solving and recommended moving the ceremony closer and the dinner inside. She always had our guests comfort and enjoyment in mind and her decisions and weather planning paid off. She kept a cool head and made the right decisions. Everything looked more beautiful than I could have hoped and all her recommendations created a beautiful event. While we were getting our portraits done she even brought over some of the hor'derves to the wedding party and a special plate just for my husband and I. I never felt like I had to worry about a single thing. I just got to sit back and enjoy the champagne, family & friends, and new husband. Book them now! You won't regret it!

Thank you so much to Kala, our coordinator w/ the Sarasota Wedding Gallery, and her team for making our wedding planning and day perfect! I was super anxious about planning my wedding, and honestly did not want to have to deal with it, as I knew it would stress me out. I also wanted to make sure that our parents and bridesmaids/groomsmen, did not have to deal w/ helping to plan the wedding either(esp b/c a majority of them live in Colorado). The whole way through, Kala listened to our ideas and questions, provided us with wonderful feedback, and followed through with all the planning and coordinating so that I was relaxed and actually enjoyed planning. She not only made me feel calm (which i know my husband appreciated!), she made sure our wedding was beautiful and ran smoothly. Kala was so great about coordinating with all our other vendors, which allowed me to have a good time with all my family and friends who were arriving from out of town the week(s) prior to the wedding. My wedding rehearsal and wedding day couldn't have gone any better. I was never once stressed, and I knew everything was taken care of...I just got to have fun! The wedding got so many compliments about how beautiful and fun it was, how great the food was (thanks to Milan Catering who worked hand-in-hand with Kala), but my favorite was that "it was very you"- this sums up what I was hoping for our wedding to be... and this couldn't have been possible w/o Kala.

(she has a habit of saying "no worries" - and as I heard that through out the evening, I knew we were in good hands. She spent several days with us over the course of the planning to create that vintage, romantic feeling at the Crosley. Since they have a showroom that has a Crosley interior, it was really comforting to know how everything would look.. before we showed up. My colors were gold and champagne, and she was able to find the right dinnerware with that vintage feel. More importantly, she was very patient with me constantly changing my mind and sending her new pics. When I saw the reception - I knew that she really got me! My Mom helped quite a bit in the process and she was just as thrilled. Wonderful event planning and the absolutely best DOC!

They were able to find those one of a kind items that really made my photos look beautiful. We took their suggestions to add family photos on the windowsills and on the mantles which gave a intimate touch to each of the rooms, and our guets loved looking at the family photos. We added lots of candlelights at night to the tables which kept the romance of the mansion for the entire evening. Our wedding planner was Kala; she was SO organized and kept everything on schedule as we did not rent the mansion for the long hours. I appreciated that she was so capable with the other venders as well. The gallery was definately an important addition to our planning. HIGHLY recommended (and you have to see their Crosley room - they painted part of the showroom to be the inside of the Mansion; including lighting. Once Kala ordered in the linens, decor, and chairs (with suggested alternatives); we set the table to see what it would look like at night. That was one of my bigget worries, that after all of this planning, the effect would look silly. You can see on their FaceBook that is was spectacular! Thank you ladies

This is the hardest review to do; as my father died a few weeks before our wedding; and it is only through the efforts of these ladies at the Gallery that I, Mom and my sisters, plus all of my aunts did not unravel. You can imagine how upset we were and it really diminished the fun part of the planning; as everytime I picked something up to make a decision, I was reminded of my Dad (which left me weeping) or I felt that this was all so frivilous. Both Kala and Kim just jumped in; and made alot of the decisions for me and coordinated all of the venders with whatever it is that they need to know, do or ? During the day of our wedding, there were lots of moments when I, my Mom or even my sisters could have crumbled; but Kala kept us on schedule and kept me insulated from it all. My wedding day was a blur, but one of the few memories I treasure is Kala telling me to take a deep breath and then smiling at me as if the world was OK. There are really lots of reviews out there about wonderful service, I read them to think about what to say for the Gallery. But Kala and Kim went way beyond a for hire service, their compassion for me was remarkable.

They weren't kidding.. the linen selections were like WOW. I decided to add more to the really important tables; ours; cake and gift and sign in, which now looking at the photos - was teh right decision. The staff did some intricate scalloping which made it look romantic and pretty. One month before, I made the leap for the DOC; Kala was a lifesaver. She really took over the management of all of those venders; whose emails were driving me absolultely crazy. (I think they were slightly afraid of her - because she really made them go to her when they had questions). She also coordinated my bridal exit - which was really important; like doing an introduction in reverse. I can't imagine her energy level; she was here when we arrived to get ready; and helped my parents load up the car with our gifts at the end of the evening. We did supply lots of DIY centerpeices - those got put back into the car as well; and they even carefully packed it all up for my mom. That was just a nice thing to do. So, get the linens, the DOC and enjoy!

One of the very best decisions I made was hiring Kala at the Sarasota Wedding Gallery. She was so instrumental in just keeping me and my bridal party organized and running the ceremony and reception. Of course, it rained that day.. my worst nightmare. But she and my captain and my chef had already worked out Plan B - so we ended up delaying the ceremony a 1/2 hour and then the staff wiped off the chairs and we GOT Married!!!! And Kala never blinked or showed any stress; she just kept running and keeping it upbeat and organized.

We also used them for the linens and decor. I got the ceremonial arch that was built using the grapevines and they added the pink orchids to the arch. My pics are just beautiful. The linens we picked were more expensive than the original ones.. but I just wanted them to sparkle at night. They added centerpieces that were really lots of bridal candles (battery operated - which was really a good idea) and the evening was just sooooo romantic. The designer at the gallery really helped me pull together every picture I had saved and create a style that was vintage romance. We added crystal vases with single blush roses in each one as a favor and I also added the napkin rings that looked like diamond rings for favors. THAT got's lots of raves.

I really recommend them. Their designing was awesome. AND Kala was absolutely the best

We were super lucky to work with Kala for the planning of our day of coordatination service. She told us straight, made helpful recommendations, had a flexible schedule, knew a ton of people in the industry - she was top notch! We were also surprised how she took the lead at our rehearsal - she was 100% in charge and SO helpful! She called all of our vendors for coordination and didn't miss a beat. We forgot our rings during the ceremony and she improvised, asking my parents to take theirs off so we'd have rings to marry with. We LOVED her. She brought an assistant (Alexis) who was also perfect, professional and a huge part of our day. Thank you!

We used Alexis as a wedding coordinator for our recent wedding. She was very helpful in helping us organize our thoughts to execute a perfect day! From the beginning, she helped us with vendors and offered crucial advice and timelines to help us along. We were really able to benefit from her expertise and experience. Where she really was vital was wedding day. She had made a timeline and kept things very organized and running on time! She had everything in place as we had talked about and really put extra touches in everything. The entire night she has the best interest of the bride and groom and really make the perfect evening. I am confident in recommending Alexis/Sarasota wedding gallery in helping to make your wedding day perfect. Do yourself a favor and let one of their great staff take over a lot of the stress of planning a wedding!

I used their services in conjunction with my Milan catering contract. Alexis was very responsive and flexible. There was a bit of an issue because my original planner left abruptly without notice or follow-up. While Alexis did do a lot to make my wedding special, there were a few details that were left out or not addressed. Overall my wedding was great thanks to them!

Jennifer, I am so glad your wedding day went perfect. Unfortunately we did have a staff member transition at this time. We do have several event planners that are seasoned to step in at any point in the planning process. Thank you again for allowing us to be apart of your very special wedding day. We love you both and and wish you and Landyn the best.

Originally when I began this process, I was working with Kala, who was great. She would come to bridal shows with me, respond to emails quickly, go to floral appointments with me, all that good stuff. However, within a few months until the wedding, emails started getting responded to less and less (by emails from me and my mother). Eventually we learned that Kala was on maternity leave and wouldn't be back in time for the wedding and we would be working with Jessie (would have been nice to know without us having to yank information out of her, but whatever, what are you going to do).

I tried emailing Jessie multiple times and it would take forever for a response, sometimes I didn't get a response at all and resent the email until I got something. I met Jessie the day before the wedding for the rehearsal since I didn't live in the area (about 4 hours away) and rehearsal went well enough. The day of the wedding, I had no idea when Jessie was showing up and my mother couldn't get a hold of her on the phone. She eventually showed up and put everything together very nicely. However, my bridesmaids said that she was very rude to them and were pretty fed up with her by the end of the night.

While the wedding was lovely, I was very unhappy with getting stuck with Jessie and know my experience would have been a better one if Kala was available like I thought she'd be. I would recommend working with anyone but Jessie.

I am very disappointed with the service I received from Sarasota wedding gallery. I was very excited when hiring them based on my reviews from most wedding websites but the quality of services I received (especially since I had a destination wedding) was very disappointing. I found it them to be very disinterested in my wedding and I assume it was because after my first planner quit and it took 2 months of hearing nothing they assigned me to there "best" planner, Kala. Which in turn was, I guess, there busiest planner and since I wasn't a local Gala or event, my wedding was put on the backburner. Overall the wedding turned out beautifully and I did get some great vendor suggestions from Sarasota Wedding Gallery, but the truth is I would have rather paid my catering coordinator at my venue the amount of money I paid SWG to "help plan" my wedding.

Sarasota Wedding Gallery responded with the following comments:

Dear Desiree

First, thank you from all of us at the Gallery. Yes… it was true that the original planner quit; which was stressful during the transition; so we are REALLY pleased that the wedding turned out beautifully.

As part of our services for destination brides; we do have great vendors and do an incredible job with the vendor management aspects. Your other reviews with our vendors were “AMAZING, WONDERFUL, GORGEOUS!”... AND “I cannot describe enough how pleased I am, got my vision exactly!” … AND…. “It turned out to be better than I ever dreamed “ AND “They were awesome! AND most importantly… “I couldn't have don't it without her and her team!!” We were that team.

So in fairness:

5.0 for a beautiful wedding
5.0 for vendor selection, management and coordination during your wedding
5.0 for floral design
And that extra special moment:
5.0 for saving Grandma from falling off the balcony

We wish you and Tate the very best.
