Ted and I are so thankful for the incredible service, care and detail that was put into creating our special day by The Ritz-Carlton Orlando Team. We took our time searching for the perfect wedding venue, and when we visited The Ritz-Carlton, we knew it was the right match for us and couldn't be happier!

My husband and I selected our wonderful wedding cuisine from The Ritz-Carlton catering team. The food was so incredibly tasty, and met the level of service you would expect at The Ritz-Carlton.

We also selected our wedding cake through The Ritz-Carlton. I sent a photo of my wedding dress to the hotel and they created a beautiful sketch of our wedding cake that resembled key aspects of my dress, and was absolutely beautiful. We enjoyed both chocolate cake with raspberry filling, and a light cheesecake with fruit topping.

The professional team that we worked with at the hotel was top-notch. Grace Beredo initially worked with us on our wedding contract. She was wonderful to work with, and answered our questions throroughly to make sure we were creating our dream event. On the day of the wedding, Sara Brooks was our wedding concierge, who worked side by side with Megan Bucnis. Sara throughout the day continued to go out of her way to make sure our day was running smoothly and extra special. Most of our communication was with Megan Bucnis throughout the wedding planning. She was kind, caring and so professional, and was constantly helping us create our perfect wedding day. When we had a question, Megan would quickly get us an answer. Ted and I went to visit the hotel a handful of times to help us envision our special day, and Megan always met us with a smile. She was always so helpful and did everything to meet our needs. She continuously went out of her way to make sure we were a happy couple, and we are so thankful for the service - from the beginning, all the way to the end - that she provided for us.

Thank you for the stellar service!

Breath-taking venue!! Event manager Megan did a phenomenal job..she worked so so hard! I don't know how she does it, but she made me feel like I was the only event she was planning for! The hotel is an incredible place and I am going to make sure I return there someday! I went to the top 5 star resort in jamaica and it still didn't compare to how amazing the Ritz and their service is!

The entire wedding party stayed at the Ritz the night before the wedding. We got ready in our rooms and took our portraits on the grounds before our ceremony in our church. The entire staff was so hospitable and the hotel allowed us to take photos there even though our wedding would be held at a different location. Different employees would check in on us throughout the hot August morning and brought bottled water continuously. They even let us take photos pretending to be the hotel staff behind the check in counter! It was a lot of fun, and the staff was so courteous. Loved the experience!

I could not have imagined a better experience from the planning to mode right to the wedding day. Everything was perfect and there is not one thing I could have asked for to have been better. The entire staff was kind, and attentive to every need. They made all of us feel as if my daughter's wedding day was as important to them as it was to us. Most of all they took all the stress away from all of us so that we had the very best day of our lives.

The greatest compliment was when my son-in-law turned to my daughter and said "When our kids get married they are having a Ritz wedding!"

Thank-you so much for the wonderful memories we still talk about and always will!

The Ritz was 5 star all around to work with. From the sales process to the planning process and then to the actual day, everyone was so attentive and professional. I HIGHLY recommend getting married and having your reception at the Ritz Carlton. Also loved having the JW there as well. It was an added bonus and great option for my out of town guests.

Dream Wedding! Our wedding ceremony and reception was held at The Ritz-Carlton Grande Lakes in two of their ballrooms. It was a DREAM wedding! From the moment we stepped foot in the Ritz and spoke with one of the Sales Associates (Grace), we were treated like royalty. As we toured the venue, EVERY member of the staff we encountered, no matter what position, greeted us and made us feel welcome. Our immediate impression was the incredible, personalized service. Of course, we would expect this from The Ritz - that is what the brand is all about. However, the way it was executed was still quite impressive :)

We were happy with the venue itself, the facilities, the food (amazing!!!), the cake (oh my goodness, the
cake/pastry artist was INCREDIBLE) and our incredible wedding coorindator (Sarah). She was always so cool under pressure and was a pleasure to work with throughout the process. Anytime I had questions, she was always professional, helpful and quick to respond.

Of course, as you may expect, there were some things that we felt were a bit over-priced. An approximate example - $5 for an economy size bag of pretzels in our Hospitality suite. A little much, I think.

Another MAJOR issue we had was the parking - the Ritz was the only 5-star venue that did not cover parking for our guests. Self-parking and valet parking were discounted but guests still had to pay $11 and $17/day respectively. The Waldorf and other competing sites offered complimentary parking. I'm unaware of any major issues day-of, but we personally had several problems in our various visits with the parking folks, who we were told are contracted out and are not technically within the Ritz.

Nonetheless, overall, we were very happy with the venue - the wedding was truly a DREAM! Thanks to the Ritz and everyone on our wedding team there who helped make the event unforgettable - not just for us, but I think for many of our guests, as well!
