Beautiful Wedding!

Overall we would give our experience a 4 out of 5. We truly did enjoy the wedding process with Marriott, and the wedding was magnificent! We are very grateful to have had our wedding here and to work with the amazing Sarah Bucy, who made this process easy and fun.

Booking process: We actually booked with Marriott before they opened and before they had a wedding package created! Lillian convinced us to come in and tour and really sold us on having our wedding here. She was knowledgeable, gave us a great tour, and helped us create a wedding package that fit our budget and needs.

Planning: We soon met Sarah, and she was a joy to work with! She was responsive, responding to emails very quickly, gave us good advice when asked, and worked well with our wedding coordinator. It truly felt like she went above and beyond, and we couldn鈥檛 be more grateful to have worked with her. She is AMAZING!!

Food: Our menu tasting was a highlight for us. The food was delicious and it felt personalized. We were very pleased that the food was held to the same standard the night of the wedding, and equally as delicious for all of our guests!

Location: Plenty of parking options, and a beautiful venue!!! So unique and different from the usual ballroom look and feel.

Unfortunately there were some mishaps.
When we checked into the hotel the afternoon before our wedding, only one of our suites we booked were available. I had emailed months prior about reserving two suites (one for the bride and one for the groom) but unfortunately, they only booked one of them, and there were no more available. We were at the check out desk for about 45 minutes figuring this out, putting us behind schedule. We were offered two connecting rooms in replacement, but unfortunately this did no good as the doors did not open all the way/did not stay open, so we only utilized the room for the groomsmen to arrive in. Not a good place for pictures either! We were able to use the Hip Flask area for the groomsmen to take pictures, which was a nice gesture, but we were very disappointed in the wasted time, and the wrong room being booked for us.
On top of the room mistake, I was told that my suite would be a corner suite overlooking the city. While I know this was not in the contract, but a verbal promise, I was sad to see we were not given the corner suite.
Lastly, this was another mistake made by Marriott, and in our contract. Our contract stated that we would get a complimentary, in room breakfast the morning after our wedding. This did not happen and we were not contacted about this either. Technically we paid for this in our contract, but we did not receive it.

Again, overall working with this Marriott was a great experience, and we were able to have the wedding of our dreams. Thank you Marriott!
