    Gorgeous ballroom!

    We had a truly great experience planning and having our wedding at the Omni. We had the pleasure of working with Corey, who was extremely helpful and professional throughout the entire process. Communication was clear and timely, and we were able to plan every detail with ease. Corey was able to help us coordinate our cookie table, late night snacks, and every aspect of the evening without a hitch. From the valets, to the wait staff and bartenders, everyone we encountered at the wedding was friendly, helpful, and provided great service. The food was delicious and served warm, and we have not stopped receiving compliments on the ballroom. Would highly recommend the Omni and Corey to any couple in search of a venue!

    Best Venue for a Wedding!

    We got married here on 5/11/19. We had a great experience with our coordinator at the Omni, Erin, that works seamlessly with you from start to finish! The wait staff the day of our wedding was incredible, the food was perfect (all cooked perfectly and all came out hot and delicious). Everyone took care of us so well and the Omni really makes your process go smoothly. We have not one complaint! We used the grand ballroom and urban room for cocktail hour and wouldn’t have done any differently!

    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.
