We got a sneak peek of the ballroom just before the cocktail hour ended. We had uplighting around the sides of the room. But the chandeliers were really what made the ballroom so magical. They are GORGEOUS and provided just the right amount of lighting and ambience. Our guests raved about the food. Eileen was so accommodating with requests and gave us some great ideas for the appetizer and entree options. I'm glad I took her advice because the food from start to finish was delicious. The majority of our guests were up on the dance floor most of the night. The dance floor was BIG which was exactly what we needed for the 152 people we had. This made it easy for me to move from group to group between songs so I got to spend time with all my guests on the dance floor.
I'm so glad I held my reception at a hotel for the convenience factor, making it easy and safe for our guests. Our reception ended at 10:30 and soon thereafter everyone was gathering in the hotel lobby bar to keep the party going. There was even a DJ and a small dance floor in the bar! If you're looking for a stress-free experience planning your event and a stress-free time actually enjoying your reception, look no further than this hotel!
Caroline and Derek,
It was so much fun planning your wedding. I enjoyed working with you and your mom, Caroline. You have my all time favorite "Dip" picture.. the red shoes put it over the top!
Thank you for such an incredible review.
Looking forward to seeing you both next year for your Anniversary!
Best wishes for a lifetime full of love and happiness!
Eileen, Jennifer and the entire staff at Ethan Allen Hotel
