Il Venetian is a modern Italian fine dining restaurant located just off The Marriott Key Center Lobby and just below the St. Clair Ballroom. The decor and ambiance are a real treat with much of the artwork, sculptures, and glasswork imported from Italy. The large North facing windows bathe the entire space is a beautiful light making it a real joy to shoot in.
Because of the ownership arrangement between Il Venetian and St. Clair Ballroom a few floors up, Il Venetian can be made available before the restaurant opens for the day for bridal party photos provided your wedding is taking place at St. Clair Ballroom. If your wedding is not taking place at St. Clair Ballroom but your rehearsal dinner is at Il Venetian or The Marble Room, it might be worth asking the owners if you can use the space if you need a backup indoor location. It will just depend on the owner’s policies at what they are comfortable with.
Regardless, it’s an amazing space and we hope to be able to visit soon as restaurant patrons and not just photographers!
