    I had the pleasure of working with Hotel Karlan for wedding planning and decor back in November 2017. My experience was absolutely phenomenal! Once I arrived to set up the decor, a member of the catering team greeted me and asked if there was anything that I needed. The members also checked in with me periodically before the event started. Once the wedding began, I was assigned a banquet manager that made sure everything was up to my standards as well as the bride's standards. Before the staff retired for the night, they checked in with myself and the bride! I would have to say this was one of the best experiences that I have had at a venue. Hotel Karlan was more than accomodating to Blush Moments. I hope we get to work with them again in the near future!

    We were winners of a Military Wedding giveaway hosted by Hotel Karlan. We are very grateful for the opportunity and were blown away at the professionalism of the staff, the beautiful scenery, and overall value of our event. Thank you for making our wedding a success and your appreciation to the military.
