Kristin and her team did a fantastic job executing our Indian wedding and reception! Kristin was responsive, willing to go through every detail with me in excruciating detail (I was a very particular bride), and such a pleasure to work with! They were also flexible with providing us accommodations that we needed to help our wedding day go perfectly (e.g., holding rooms for the wedding party). We were very happy that we selected the Hartford Marriott Downtown as our wedding and reception venue.Sent on 07/11/2016

Kristin was amazing dealing with everything from helping put our centerpieces together to getting my sister quietly seated when she tried to walk into the ceremony after the procession had started. Having everything taken care of for us in one place was such a plus given that my now husband was moving from Ireland and we had to deal with planning a wedding in the midst of the move. After looking at multiple venues, we were sold on the Marriott's flexibility while still being beautiful.Sent on 03/22/2016
