Our daughter's wedding was everything she had dreamed of thanks to Leslie and the staff at the Hotel Phillips. The hotel has wonderful ambiance and having the ceremony and reception at the same venue was certainly the way to go. Leslie and the staff were very accommodating in all aspects of the planning and worked very well with the outside vendors, going above and beyond to help a vision become reality. From the time we settled on the Hotel Phillips and throughout the planning, the wedding, reception, and brunch the following day we couldn't have been more pleased. Our out of town guests were very complimentary, commenting that everyone was always courteous and helpful. Many thanks to everyone at the Hotel Phillips for special memories.

We just recently had our wedding at the Hotel Phillips. It was amazing, romantic, beautiful, and magical! The event coordinator at the hotel was very responsive and attentive to detail; she was paramount in taking our vision and executing it with both the hotel and the vendors. Because we had everything at one venue, we opted to do pictures ahead of time so we could enjoy the cocktail hour and mingle with our guests. Our pictures came out absolutely amazing with the decor of the hotel! We did a first look moment (I highly recommend pictures and a first look ahead of time) and the hotel was wonderful and had everything set up ahead of time. All of our guests loved their rooms, the food, and the convenience of having the ceremony and reception in the same place. It wouldn't have been possible to execute our day without the staff at the hotel; I am so thankful that we were able to work with them! There were zero issues on our wedding day. The staff even took all of our gifts and special items, like our cake service and toasting glasses, to our room (which was staged beautifully).
Good luck and I hope your wedding is everything you and yours dream it will be.
P.S. A note for all the brides out there: the more organized and prepared you are, the more your event coordinators can help you! :)
