Nothing but positive response from us as the wedding couple but even our guests had nothing but positive things to say. Food was awesome. Recommend louder microphone due to water fountain loudness or turn the fountain off for guests to hear vows.

Amazing , awesome , beautiful
I worked with Joan there at the Embassy Suites , she helped coordinate everything there. She was amazing , her response time with questions was great , very professional. We had the best wedding day thanks to the team and people working there at Embassy. The venue was beautiful , my guests were very surprised to see the fountain in the middle of the hotel atrium. It was a nice atmosphere, it really set the mood for my cocktail hour . Along with the atrium the actual ballroom was nice , neutral colors , big dance floor , tons of space for tables and DJ, etc . the food was awesome! we got a lot of compliments on the food & as people know the food is most important when it comes to the reception. We not only used the ballroom & the atrium but we also used the ceremony room they have there for you to rent and that’s where we actually said “I do”. They set up the room for us with chairs , floor runner, tables etc. they gave us everything we needed to make my vision come true. We did everything there at the Embassy to even staying there the night before and the night of. The Hotel room accommodations were clean & very comfortable. We enjoyed our stay from the delish breakfast the next morning to a swim in the pool later that day. It was so nice , and would go back just for a staycation! They have reasonable wedding packages and have a lot of bonus items that are included that you really can’t get anywhere else. I would 100% recommend anyone to get married or host their reception there or do both.

With only 2 months to plan my daughter's wedding, i was stressed. Joan took all of that stress away. She is kind, responsive and hard working. Everything went perfect!
