Today Ruth Eckerd Hall was announced as a winner of the 2021 WeddingWire Couple Choice Awards®, an accolade representing the top wedding professionals across the board in quality, service, responsiveness and professionalism reviewed by couples on WeddingWire, a leader in the $200 billion global wedding planning industry.

In making the announcement, WeddingWire said:

In 2020, the rise and spread of COVID-19 unfortunately impacted the wedding industry and the hundreds of thousands of small businesses who bring weddings to life every day. However, wedding vendors worldwide continued to guide their couples through wedding planning and the challenges of the global pandemic.  In celebration of local wedding vendors nationwide and overseas, the 2021 WeddingWire Couples Choice Awards® recognizes the wedding professionals who excelled in supporting to-be-weds despite unprecedented challenges resulting from COVID-19.

To determine these distinguished wedding professionals, WeddingWire analyzed reviews across more than 20 service categories - from venues and caterers to florists and photographers – to find the most-and highest-rated vendors of the year.  The winners exhibit superior professionalism, responsiveness, service and quality when interacting with the millions of couples who turn to WeddingWire to help with their wedding planning process each month.

"We are honored to be named one of the top wedding venues in Clearwater,” said Jackie Van Sant, Director of Catering. “Our staff takes great pride in providing excellent customer service, especially to couples on their very important wedding day.”
