    Perfect Location for Our Wedding!

    We had our wedding at the InterContinental - The Wharf in November 2018 and it could not have been more perfect! We met with Lynda (who is amazing) last January and immediately fell in love with the hotel - it was the perfect mix of classy and elegant, but still felt like home to us. The staff, including Lauren, who was the BEST, made planning and coordination so easy. They worked with us to come up with the perfect menu and experience for our guests, most of whom stayed at the hotel, too, and executed everything to perfection. Anna worked to make our guests comfortable in their rooms and even helped get our guests on similar floors so that we could all be together most of the weekend! Lauren was there both on Friday to greet us when we checked in and for the ceremony rehearsal, and all day Saturday to help out with the event itself. If you are considering having your wedding, or any event at the hotel, do not hesitate. It's truly the perfect venue with the most amazing staff, and we feel SO lucky to have been able to host our wedding there!
