From the very first message to Hotel Viking as a vendor, I knew I was going to want them. I sent the request for information through wedding wire and Nancy with Hotel Viking responded right away with details of the hotels history and pictures of their spaces and the wedding package and menu options. I liked that they gave us all the information up front rather than having to ask for it in pieces. Then when we went for a tour the employees were friendly and prompt and they had drinks and an appetizer for us to try!! It was an experience like no other, they truly wanted us there. The spaces were beautiful, they have several options to suit any size, and they also have the beautiful Kay Chapel on property, so if you want a classic feel but nondenominational this was perfect! The hotel staff made sure to keep in touch anytime there were further details we needed to be filling out, so I didn't have to worry about forgetting something, and they were very responsive when I had questions. They did a good job coordinating with my other vendors to make sure everything went smoothly. The staff in charge of the day made sure to introduce themselves to me and let me know they were taking care of things. It was perfect and beautiful. They have also been renovating the hotel so things are a little newer while keeping the historic charm, they have some rooms that are now pet friendly.Sent on 05/25/2019
