They’re married! Savannah and Ryan have been planning their Powel Crosley Estate wedding for over two years and the day could not have gone any better!
Savannah & Ryan at the Powel Crosley Estate Wedding Venue in Sarasota, Florida
The burning question in every bride’s mind is always “Will it rain?”, especially when you’re planning an outdoor ceremony! For Savannah and Ryan, the answer was no! It was a perfect Southwest Florida wedding day for these two – hot and sunny – and it didn’t rain until about 8:00 pm when the guests were safely under the canopy of their tent.
Luckily, the rain held off for the couple’s exit and we were able to see them off to their getaway car – a beauty provided by the Classic Cars of Sarasota that made for an elegant exit and some really fun photos!
The Powel Crosley Estate Wedding Venue
For anyone hoping to get married at the Powel Crosley Estate, this venue never disappoints and lends itself to the most gorgeous wedding day portraits!
One of the main reasons that the Powel Crosley is so popular for weddings (besides its beauty and a gorgeous view of the water) is that the venue can accommodate both large and small gatherings very comfortably and elegantly.
For example, there is one fee to rent the main house, but the lawn, pergola, and outdoor areas are an additional fee. If you’re planning a wedding in the heat of summer or cooler months, or have a small gathering and only need the patio and main house for your event, this is perfect! You can also choose whether or not you want the string lights overhanging the lawn and patio (in my opinion, this is a must!).
