Weddings Redefined

Travel Guide: The Ritz-Carlton Naples, Florida

In January we were invited by the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Naples, Florida to train their staff on same-sex weddings. While we were down there doing the training we were also treated to a stay at the hotel and were able to experience the finest of what the Ritz-Carlton has to offer, including their exceptional spa, pool, beach, restaurants and club level. 

The aesthetic of the hotel is classic Ritz Carlton, very chic, warm and inviting. And of course the Ritz-Carlton service experience is as extraordinary as you would come to expect. People remembered our names and requests and treated us with complete respect and care throughout our stay. Additionally we felt very comfortable at the property as a same-sex couple and there were no issues being publicly out at any time during our stay.

This property is an extraordinary location for your same-sex wedding. Ceremonies can be held on the beach or they can be held by the pool. The restaurants on the premises are exceptional. The sunset from the property overlooking the Gulf Coast is amazing. I highly recommend this property especially now that the entire sales and events team is really prepared to serve you well, understand same-sex wedding traditions and trends, and being an amazing advocate for you throughout your wedding planning process.
