Renaissance Plantation Hotel
The Renaissance Hotel was an unconventional location for a wedding. The building exterior does it no justice because the inside is very contemporary and modern. My guests were surprised at the modern architecture of the venue and they were able to transform the meeting halls into a magical wonderland. I originally wanted my wedding at the W Fort Lauderdale but the prices were out of my budget. The renaissance exceeded my expectations and I couldn't have chosen a better place. Intimate and the staff was exceptional. The only downfall was my hotel planner changed about 3 times. But it was for the best because my final Planner Jazz was phenomenal.
I didn't go with Renaissance for my wedding's hotel block because they required a 2 night stay for at least 7 rooms, and I would be responsible for the difference if at least 70% of the rooms were not filled by wedding guests. This was a possible liability of 0.7*7*2*$190=$1862 I couldnt commit to since I didnt know how many out of town guests would need hotel rooms.
The wedding was absolutely amazing! The food - something you would get at a five star restaurant! All of my attendees said that it was the most beautiful & fun wedding that they had ever been to. If I could do it all over again, I would!
