    If I could give Darlene Coons and the Omni more stars, I would! My fiance and I knew that we were picking a pricier venue, but we could not be happier with our choice. From the start, Darlene gave her time to us and never made us feel like "just another engaged couple." Our initial tour/q&a lasted almost two hours as she addressed our questions and showed us all of the physical spaces that we could select for our guests and ourselves to enjoy. The high- quality service never stopped from that day on. Darlene would always email us back within 24 hrs, and her emails were always clear. My fiance and I genuinely looked forward to meeting with Darlene for each step of the planning process. In the end, everything was wonderful, the food was SO good, and our complimentary Royal Suite at the end made us feel like we were capping off the most perfect day in the most perfect way.
