Bridal staircase inside the Phillippi Estate

The Phillippi Estate is an Southern estate located on the Phillippi River.  Known for Southern charm,  it is perfect for an outdoor Sarasota ceremony and an indoor wedding reception with late night dancing on the brick patio.  The Sarasota Wedding Gallery planners are experienced at this venue and can guide you through the design, styling and your wedding day.  There are three beautiful locations for a Phillippi  wedding ceremony.  The most popular wedding ceremony is at the back of the estate under the oak trees or facing the river.  You can also use the brick patio or even inside the great room.  You also have several Phillippi wedding reception options.  There are three main rooms inside the mansion with views of the river and oaks.  The library can be used for additional seating, a photobooth or cake and dessert stations.  The dining room is another option for additional dining.   Your wedding day starts at noon in the bridal and groom suite upstairs.   Your bridal entrance is ususually down the interior second story staircase.  Ceremony start times depend upon the sunset and if you plan on "first looks" and pre-ceremony photographs.  After dinner, dancing is on the brick patio under the sparkling evening skies.  Most of our Phillippi weddings are five hours from start of ceremony until the last dance.The estate provides interior chairs and tables, while the caterer provides the linens, lighting and the outdoor ceremony chairs.  The approved catering company,  Milan Catering and Event Design can also provide the bar services.  Most of our couples offer family style dinner menus as buffets tend to use up valuable space inside the mansion. 

Here's some of the best layouts we have done for 2016.
