I planned my wedding from Colorado without ever being in Sarasota or seeing the venue. The wedding specialist, Jill Paterson, did a wonderful job making sure my event went smoothly. Her and Rosemary made sure that they could accommodate our requests. In fact I emailed her yesterday to get reward points. The reception room was setup beautifully!

The food was delicious too! Highly recommend the chip bar - the guests loved the queso!! The cheese platter and the macaroons were very good too.

I was thrilled with the Ritz Carlton for our wedding. We were treated so well by every staff member. Our sales director, Rosemary , and our wedding coordinator, Vanessa, were beyond professional and a pleasure to work with. Their attention to detail could not have been surpassed.

From the beginning every one who we came into contact with was over the top amazing. I knew the day we visited it was the place to host our wedding. We had a destination wedding and made it a fun filled weekend, they Ritz was over the top amazing. Kate and her team made my special day stress free, as well as responding so quickly to any request we had no matter how small or large. I was blown away with our experience at the Ritz and highly reccomend them for any celebration you may have in your future.

After our private ceremony (offsite), we held a small dinner reception for us and our 5 guests and the Ritz-Carlton Sarasota's Jack Dusty restaurant. They gave us spectacular service and attention. The food & cocktails were excellent. We loved every part of our experience here, start to finish. Would recommend for a casual wedding or rehearsal dinner!

We started planning a destination beach wedding in September 2012. We spent countless hours/days/weeks reading the wedding wire reviews. We looked at about 6 venues around the St Pete area and are extremely pleased we chose The Ritz Carlton, Sarasota, Florida. Chris Starman was very helpful from the beginning to the end, he was quick to answer all questions.
Mariela was assigned to be our wedding day coordinator. We were impressed with her attention to details, organizational skills, patience, quick response to questions, suggestions, and dedication to making a smooth ,terrific wedding day experience. Due to torrential rain the morning of, a decision had to be made as to where everything would now take place. The rain continued. So my outdoor beach ceremony and reception became an outdoor patio ceremony and a ballroom. They went above and beyond to make sure the space was perfect. They put extra time into the details; setting up the dinner tables, the presentation of the dinner and the atmosphere all around. My guest had the best time even through the horrible weather.
The hot and cold appetizers that Chris Starman and Mariela recommended were a huge hit. As for the dinner, I was pleasantly surprised as to how tender the steak was. As it turned out it we chose the yellow cake with key lime filing and topped with fresh strawberries and it was scrumptiousNot your average wedding food!
Cindy and the beach club staff were extremely accommodating and helpful when visiting the venue and during the rehearsal. They all knew what was going on, where we should be and made sure that we were taken care of. The staff overall at the Ritz, was amazing, very friendly, professional, accommodating, reassuring, and cared about my wedding. All the staff made it a point to ask if we or our guest needed anything throughout our entire stay.
The Ritz staff went above and beyond to make our tears of sadness turn into tears of joy that evening. Thank you!

The Ritz Carlton Sarasota was the absolute best place to have my wedding! It was beyond what I could have imagined. My ceremony took place on the beach at the Ritz Carlton Members Beach Club, and the reception was at the beach club inside at the grill. The location was just perfect. But, the staff made everything that much better! I couldn't have asked for a better team of people to help me plan and to carry out everything on my Big Day! Kim was exceptional, she made everything go so smoothly without me having to lift a finger! Maria and Stacy were wonderful and so sweet as well! Me and the entire wedding party and guests couldn't get over just how nice and friendly everyone was! Absolutly the best venue! Thanks so much everyone for making our day the best ever!

I cannot say enough good things about the staff and service at the Ritz. We were faced with relocating our entire wedding one week before the event due to an impending hurricane. They handled the deadline with ease, gently guided us through our choices, and worked with our original budget even though it was one third less than the set pricing structure. The hurricane ended up missing us, so we attempted an outdoor ceremony, but when the time came...so did the rain. The Ritz staff relocated our wedding indoors with lightening speed. The service at the reception was delightful, the food was delicious, and our wedding went from disater to fabulous. "Thank you" does not even come close to expressing our gratitude.
