A Wedding to Remember
Jessica and the hotel made everything flow and transition perfectly from the time of our initial meet until we checked out the day after the wedding. I should mention that we had our ceremony in the atrium, cocktail hour in the patio area, and then the reception in the ball room - so they had a lot to make happen, and did so with no interruption to our guests.
I really have nothing but great things to say. The food was great, the decorations looked perfect and were at no additional cost (unless you wanted something they don't have in stock), and the service was outstanding. Rehearsal was also a breeze. Jessica was there to make sure we had everything we needed and our guests enjoyed the complimentary cocktails and snacks provided by the hotel. I was told that we had one of the best rehearsal nights by many people in our party and that our wedding was a blast. I highly reccomend the Des Moines Embassy Suites for any of your wedding needs!
