  • 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

  • This venue was lovely! There isn't much that is needed to dress it up. I was able to get most of my questions answered early on, prior to being assigned my event manager 30 days out from the wedding. My event coordinator was Maribeth Liberty, and she was awesome to communicate with, either by phone or email or texts. If you'd like to tour the grounds, call and ask early so that you can get scheduled. This is not the type of place that you just drop by. The Crosely handles all of the alcohol served on site and has their own bartender. The event manager was onsite to meet any vendors and supervise set ups and build outs. They also include in the rental several sizes and shapes of tables. Chairs, linens, and table settings must be rented through the catering company. We have had so many compliments on the wedding venue! So many beautiful backdrops for lovely photographs. It couldn't have been a more perfect evening!

  • Unfortunately my fiancé and I called off the wedding... but I just wanted to acknowledge the Crosley for being understanding and returning our deposit since we gave ample notice. What a beautiful venue, a place out of fairy tales!

  • PERFECT! This is the most beautiful, romantic location for a wedding and the staff is excellent. The office was very prompt with communication prior to the wedding day. Maribeth was our on-site contact at PC and she was FANTASTIC. She was so kind, responsive and helpful from start to finish!!! It was hands down the best day of our lives. My family and friends could not believe how beautiful, fun and seamless everything was at PC…they are still raving about the beautiful venue! Thank you Maribeth and team for making our day SO PERFECT and special. We look forward to visiting this beautiful venue again in the future to reminisce about our wonderful wedding day.

  • Stunning, absolutely stunning .. we live in Texas and were looking for a place to get married along the Gulf Coast of Florida .. I was very happy that the Powel Crosley popped up in my google searches .. our guests are still raving about the location and its history and how it overlooks the water and gives you such a majestic feeling .. It was the perfect place to get married .. you book the venue through the city .. the process was easy and they also provide a coordinator for the day of the wedding to manage the details related to the venue .. Overall great experience !!

  • We recently had our wedding and reception at the Powell Crosley Estate. It is the most beautiful venue. From the mansion, to the lawn, to the bay front view, it was incredible. We utilized every part of the facility, and our guests loved it. The sunset was amazing over the bay. The staff was very helpful, we worked with Juan and he was quick to answer any questions I had. The bar staff made very good drinks. I was a little surprised they did not do a last call, I know many people were unaware of the night coming to an end and that would have been helpful. But overall, I can't say enough good things about this beautiful venue!

  • We fell in love with the venue right away and knew it was the place we wanted to get married. However the problem with this venue is the fact that they are run by the county. On the day we showed up for our wedding the entire property was littered with yard debris and branches from bad weather and had not been mowed for 2 weeks. There is no mower on property and the county only comes out on Thursday. They had two gentlemen on property to clean up but we knew there was no way they would be able to have the yard looking wedding ready in time for our ceremony. My fiance called numerous people who told him no one would be sent out to mow or clean up the downed branches, and no one would accept responsibility or come out. He and his groomsmen ended up spending the entire day cleaning the property instead of enjoying his wedding day with his groomsmen. They want to give us a 10% venue discount for the conditions, but then charged us extra hours stating a vendor left late. The venue is wonde... Read more

  • absolutely beautiful venue, & our wedding was absolutely amazing. however, with that being said, wow this staff needs serious improvement. i feel like everyone that works there is on different pages at all times, there is no true communication between staff members. the bar staff...HA wow. I have never met such rude people in my life. they treated my husband, the groom at the time, horribly. and I have received TONS of complaints about how rude and unfriendly they were. this was extremely upsetting to me, what bride wants rude bar staff at their wedding? I know someone who got married there weeks before me, and they had the same problems as I did. also, if you do an open bar, be prepared to spend a ton of money with the Crosley since they are alcohol licensed and are the only ones you can do your bars through. I have no clue how they charged me for so many drinks. I only had about 80 guests at our wedding, including a lot kids and elderly who don't drink, and when i got the print out... Read more

  • I started planning my wedding almost two years before our wedding date and this was the very first thing I booked! I went to several locations in the Sarasota area and the Powel Crosley was by FAR the best for your money! I fell in love and booked it immediately! It’s owned by Manatee County and I think that it’s a definite pro. It was a relaxed process and the employees were very nice. The rules are not bad at all! I was able to have the wedding of my dreams without any major restrictions by the venue. There were a few paperwork questions along the way, but they were always quickly answered or changed. We never had any major issues. My guests are still talking about how gorgeous the venue was. My wedding pictures are so amazing with the Crosley in the background. This location made my wedding!!!

  • While there were some extra obstacles with planning a wedding at the Powel Crosley, the beauty of the venue is worth it. I can't imagine my wedding anywhere else. The privacy of the mansion was a huge factor - it had the Florida charm and waterfront views I was looking for without having strangers hover around. Also, the ability to have it all day makes the timeline seamless.
