  • 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!

  • 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.

    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.

  • 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!

  • 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 venue

  • 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!

    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!

  • 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!

Based on the pictures, it looks like it was perfect! Congratulations and best wishes, and thank you again for choosing the Powel Crosley Estate as your wedding 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)

  • 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 you

  • 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.

  • The Powel Crosley Estate is gorgeous, and everything we wanted in a wedding venue! The building is historic and has so many beautiful details. We loved every room and spot inside and outside, and took so many pictures all over the property. We had our ceremony and reception outside, but using the inside was our backup plan in case of bad weather. We liked that we had that flexibility. There are some rules to follow at the venue, but they are little things we could work around (such as no sparklers). We loved that we had the beautiful water view. The sunset and nighttime under the lights outside made for an absolutely stunning atmosphere. And one of my favorite things was walking down the beautiful staircase to my groom. The venue is so well taken care of, and the staff was wonderful! JoAnna was very responsive and helpful during the planning process, despite having to navigate all of the changes during the pandemic. And the onsite staff on our wedding day was so helpful and friendly. T... Read more

  • This venue is stunning. It is a historical 1920s venue that sits on the bay and has plenty of parking. This venue gets booked very fast for the weekend dates, so you may have to book for a weekday, like we did. The venue is pretty expensive, but is less expensive than the Ringling Brothers Museum that is also off of Tamiami Trail in Sarasota. Beyond the venue rental price, which only includes the the tables, the selection of caterers is what makes the price of having a wedding at this venue skyrocket. Although there is an extensive preferred/required catering list, many did not respond to my inquires or were outside of our budget. The caterer must have the ability to provide ALL rentals, set up/break down, and food. Again, some of the caterers on the list did not meet the venues requirements, despite being on the list. I made the venue staff aware of this. I believe the catering procedures have recently been updated, so this may no longer be an issue. Also, the venue charges a fee... Read more
