    Our wedding reception was perfect! Jessica, the wedding coordinator was so helpful. She was professional and answered all of our questions promptly. We would highly recommend embassy suites for any event.

    The Embassy Suites on the River was so fabulous to work with. Jessica the event coordinator took her time to explain pricing, each package available, and she was very flexible with her time to meet us. She made both my husband and I very confident with our choice to have our reception at the Embassy! She's hard working and put in just as much time as we did to have the most beautiful reception ever. The Embassy crew accommodated to a large reception and guest list. We chose plated dinner for our guests and everyone got their food within a few minutes of each other. There wasn't any time waiting around for plates to be brought out. It was simply amazing! I would highly recommend Jessica and The Embassy Suites to any bride to be for a successful stress free planning party :)
