  • We loved having our wedding at the Crosley! It was so beautiful and such an exquisite place to host our big day! The communication leading up to our big day was awesome and we felt that they were very clear and willing to work with us to make our day all that it was! I would 100% recommend any couple to get married here!

  • 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!

  • 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!

    Olga, thank you very much for your review. It was a delight working with you! I couldn't wait to see the pictures of your wedding after you described what you hoped it would be. 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 was the setting for our daughter’s recent wedding and reception in Sarasota. This was an absolutely magnificent and magical venue; an elegant and meticulously preserved mansion from the twenties, with a full open view of the Sarasota Bay. The staff at the Bradenton Area Convention Center, who manage the estate, were at all times, cordial, helpful and informative. We couldn’t have been more thrilled to host our guests at this fabulous venue!

  • We could not have picked a more perfect venue at the Powel Crosley Estate! Our search for an indoor/outdoor, waterfront venue (that wasn't on a beach) began two years ago. We visited locations all over Florida from the Keys, to Boca Grande, to St. Petersburg, and our favorite venue was hands-down, the Powel Crosley. This Mediterranean-style, historic property sits on a beautiful lot of land. The driveway leading up the Estate is just enchanting, almost like you're entering a fairytale! Even before touring the inside of the Estate, we knew we found our match. Not only is this place stunningly beautiful, but it is very ideal for your guests. Over half of our guests were from out-of-town, and there's plenty of nearby accommodations, along with restaurants and activities in downtown Sarasota and St. Armand's Circle to keep them busy during their stay (also making for a plethora of rehearsal dinner venue options). There's parking at the venue, too. In our opinion, the best part of having ou... 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

  • I worked with Tonya Kida. She was excellent. There were a few times I had trouble reaching her or actually speaking with her. But, nothing that was alarming. I’d definitely work with her again. But, the best part of course, is the venue. Words cannot describe how amazing and intimate this venue is! Beautiful, stunning, incredible bay views with no red tide, and fantastic bartenders. Powel Crosley was everything we could’ve asked for and more on our very special day! We’re so grateful to have had the opportunity to have our wedding at such an incredible venue. I really wish I could have another event at the PC….maybe one day!

  • From the moment we came across the Powel Crosley in our online search for a wedding venue, we knew it was the one. We actually secured our date and paid a deposit months before we even laid eyes on the venue, as we live out of state. I will admit that the initial stages of the planning process were made difficult by the fact that the venue is owned by the county and managed by office staff who are not on site, but once we got closer to our wedding date, we were assigned an event manager (Maribeth), who was incredible!! We talked by phone about several of the details weeks in advance and she was on site a few hours before our ceremony to make sure we had everything we needed, including extra bottles of champagne for the bridal suite. The majority of the design and planning was done by our caterer/event planning vendor (not affiliated with the Crosley in any way), so it really isn't necessary to have regular contact with anyone from the venue months in advance. The one unique thing about... Read more
