    Best Decision We Made!

    Booking Hotel Monaco was by far the best decision I made for my wedding. Buddee and his team made the process so easy for us, the food was great, the space was beautiful, and our guests had an amazing time. I was shocked at the level of service we received from planning to executing. There are so many highlights but I just want to list a few:
    1. Buddee took care of all the decorations and details. He scheduled a meeting three days before my wedding and asked me to bring the decor, including name tags, centerpieces, etc. I had so many items. When I arrived to the hotel, the valet team helped me bring them up, we went through the full day with Buddee, and then I showed him all of my decorations. He gave me a few suggestions on how they might set it up and then he took it from there. To me it was incredibly stress relieving to leave all of that up to his team. I didn’t have to do any decoration the day of.
    2. Buddee made my mother feel very special and taken care of. Which as anyone getting married knows is the most important part.
    3. The room we got ready in was beautiful. The staff were so thoughtful in bringing us appetizers and drinks to our room after the ceremony so we had a moment for just the two of us before the reception.

    I can’t recomend booking Hotel Monaco enough!

    Highly recommend Hotel Monaco!

    Having our wedding at the Hotel Monaco was one of the best decisions we could have made! The event coordination team is incredibly professional and took care of all the details during the weekend. Buddee is great to work with and helped us to think through all the details and then worked with our vendors to make sure the day went off without a hitch. We loved the space and the affordability and coordination efforts exceeded our expectations.
