Matthew Crowe at The Main Created The Wedding of our Dreams

When shopping around for venues, my husband and I were looking for a classic, ballroom feel. We thought The Main was the perfect fit for our goal aesthetic. After meeting with Matthew Crowe for the first time, we knew we were in good hands. His passion for his job shines through and his creativity and talent is clear!! He helped us establish our vision for the wedding cocktail hour and reception, guiding us along the way and making us feel comfortable whenever we had requests or questions. He communicated quickly and efficiently, and was extremely hands on. I can't describe how impressed we were!! At our wedding reception, Matthew was there every step of the way lending a helping hand and supervising operations. Using The Main as our wedding cocktail hour and reception venue was the best decision we could've made! The hotel staff and our room block coordinators were fantastic as well. We highly recommend using The Main for your wedding or any special event.

Truly Wonderful

I think I speak for most brides when I say wedding planning is an absolutely daunting task. When I first started I was so overwhelmed….until I went to The Main and met Matthew. I truly cannot say enough positive things about Matthew. He is professional, personable, creative, organized, prompt, funny, incredibly hard working, and just an absolute joy of a person. My wedding was exactly what I dreamed it would be and I knew each detail was hand selected for me by Matthew. He took the time to know me, my fiancé, and my family which made us feel so comfortable and confident on the big day. I could honestly go on and on about how wonderful Matthew is, I need to have another event soon JUST so I get to work with him again. Booking Matthew at The Main should be the easiest wedding planning decision you make!!

Every Detail Accounted For

I cannot say enough good things about our experience with the team at Hilton Norfolk the Main. They worked with us every step of the way to ensure no detail was forgotten. Matthew was an absolute pleasure to work with and has a keen eye for detail - it is obvious that he is experienced in what he does! All we had to do was show him ideas for how we envisioned our wedding day, and he made it a reality. Not only was Matthew flexible, professional, and organized in planning our wedding, but he was crucial to ensuring the day ran smoothly when it finally arrived and coordinated everything to a T. He even personally ordered and arranged all the flowers for our big day, and they were stunning! Matthew and the team at the Hilton gave us the perfect wedding day - do not hesitate to work with them for your event!
