Real Wedding: Megan +Matthew at The Powel Crosley

Matt and Megan decided rather quickly that no hotel or country club would work for their wedding. They picked the Powel Crosley Estate as both their Ceremony and Reception venue because of it's vintage feel and intimate nature. They knew that it was perfect for them the first time they visited and they hope all of their guests find it as beautiful and perfect as they do. Below is a little bit of information on the Powel Crosley Estate.

Seagate - The
Powel Crosley Estate

"Powel Crosley built the Florida winter home for his wife Gwendolyn in 1929. The two and one-half story Mediterranean mansion was built in the southwest corner of Bradenton on a 60 acre parcel of land on Sarasota Bay adjacent to the John Ringling Estate. The 11,000 square foot home has 21 rooms, 10 baths, and an adjacent carriage house has room for 3 cars and servants quarters on the second floor. Originally the mansion had a swimming pool, a seaplane dock and yacht basin. The home featured many innovations for its time, including a steel frame encased in cast stone, embedded pipes and wiring, and a 135-day construction schedule.

Placed on the National Registry of Historic Places in 1982, Seagate was saved from commercial development and purchased for rennovation by Manatee County which operates it as a meeting, conference, and event venue."
