The perfect vintage, romantic wedding
The Hotel Galvez went out of their way to make my wedding one of a kind. From the elegance of the hotel, to the food and service. They ensured the safety of their staff and our guest throughout the whole night. I got a million compliments on how delicious and thought out each food item and drink was.
Carrie and her team worked tirelessly to give me the perfect wedding, and that’s exactly what they gave us. I also had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Miles, the general manager. He was understanding and gracious the whole way through our wedding planning. He cares about his guest and wants their special day to be just that: special.
Words cannot describe how each detail was thought out, so I will let the pictures speak. If you are thinking about having your wedding at the Hotel Galvez. Do it!Sent on 08/23/2020

Wouldn’t change a thing!
We wouldn’t have changed a thing about our wedding. We found the Galvez and didn’t look any farther. The price was perfect for our budget. We loved that all food, drinks, linens, tables, etc were all included. We had our ceremony in the Oleander Garden and our reception in the Terrace and Ballroom. The food, drinks and atmosphere were unparalleled. The guests especially loved the donut hole station. Our photos are so beautiful and timeless. We loved the ease of staying at the hotel for the weekend and our guests enjoyed celebrating all weekend around Galveston. Angela Westhoff was a pleasure to work with. Prompt to respond to any of my millions of questions and very accommodating to my last minute changes. Would recommend to anyone!Sent on 09/05/2019
