The Sarasota Modern is a great venue! It is an absolutely perfect venue if you are thinking that a smaller more intimate but beautiful wedding is the way to go. While the venue is on the smaller side, the decor is very modern and trendy. The venue is also conveniently located in beautiful downtown Sarasota, Florida. Another benefit of this venue is that the rooms at the Sarasota Modern are especially comfortable and well thought out. It is a 89 room luxury boutique hotel, which means that there will not be other weddings or receptions going at the venue on your wedding day and it’s been designed to stand out out in a sea of hotels across the coast.
