A Magical Place
From the moment we met Cherrelle and saw the Marriott, I knew this is where I wanted to get married. The Rotunda had an intimate setting with a breathtaking staircase. The ballroom was perfect for our group. The set up was professional and crisp. Cherrelle and her team were always available to answer my questions either via phone or email. They made sure that every detail was documented and executed to perfection. The food was amazing. The buffet met everyone's approval and my guests are still talking about all the flavors and dishes that were prepared. Prince the bartender was outstanding, even my mom got a picture with him. The whole venue was exactly what we wanted -- elegant. They even made up breakfast coupons for our guests so that we could enjoy a buffet in the morning before everyone left to travel home. The Marriott is definitely the perfect place to hold a wedding .... Cherrelle and her team deserve more than 5 stars.Sent on 07/03/2019

So Worth It
I cannot tell you enough how much we are so happy that we chose this location to have our wedding and our reception. It was worth every dime that we spent because of the level of care and service that this staff put into our wedding. They were so kind and very attentive. We felt like royalty. We have so many good memories to share for a long time.Sent on 06/18/2019
I love Brianna and her work as the wedding coordinator. I also love the rotunda to officiate weddings. It's beautiful. They have a great package here, with a great coordinator with Brianna. The food is delicious. Over all, this is a great place to have a wedding, small or large. Happy to endorse Brianna's services and the beautiful space at the Marriott at City Center. Much love, Pastor Cory <><
