Everything we could ever dream of!
I cannot say enough about 500 Pearl. We were actually their first wedding but you would never know it. The service was flawless, the food was amazing and the entire night was perfect. We held our ceremony and reception at the venue and our guests also stayed at the hotel on-sight. In addition to all of this our photographer took some incredible photos in the building. The historic architecture and well done interior design made for some unique and beautiful photo opportunities. We were even able to end the whole event with a beautiful catered breakfast the next morning for our guests that stayed the night at the hotel.
The venue also had unique personal touches, like the ability for me to write a note to each of our guests staying the night at the hotel and pre place the welcome bags in the room. Since most of my family is out of town and traveled several hundred miles to come to the wedding it was nice to be able to add this personal touch.
Our friends and family shared that it was one of the best weddings they have ever been to and hands down the best food ever! Our team was incredible, professional and accommodating. Kristy was our main contact and I can't thank her enough for her constant help and support. I would highly recommend this venue to any potential couple.
