Wedding at Delray Beach Marriott
Everything about this venue was amazing! All of the staff we worked with were extremely professional and more than willing to accommodate our requests. Our event manager, Brittnee, was amazing to work with and is very good at her job. She is patient, informative, and always had a positive attitude! The food was great, and the entire day was seamless. So glad I chose to get married at the Delray Beach Marriott!Sent on 11/21/2019

Amazing Customer Service - and FOOD!
I can't say enough about the staff here. From the valet, bellmen, front desk staff, wedding planning team wait staff and chef. How do you prepare 154 beef short ribs AND fresh market fish and still get served hot...all of it!! Problems pop up, they were on it. Upset bride because of the room she is in - all over it. An amazing group of professionals.Sent on 07/29/2019

High end wedding AND a great value
Magazine worthy wedding held here on June 14th, 2019! We held our wedding here with 122 guests, 39 musicians and 17 support staff on a Friday evening. Because we are Catholic, the ceremony was held at the nearby Ascension Catholic Church followed by a black tie reception opening up all of the largest ballrooms to accommodate the 9 piece band and lounge furniture. As soon as we had our first meeting with the on-site wedding planner Brittnee McGrath, we knew we had found THE place. Although we live in Delray Beach, it was a destination for many of our guests so the appeal of the ocean front and resort atmosphere made it an easy decision for our guests coming from Boston, Chicago, and Arizona. She is beyond professional and had a sensible answer for my many questions. She explained how a duet plate makes it easier on the bride and groom (we also had an excellent outside wedding planner as well before we had even met Brittnee, but she made herself available for everything having to do with the hotel it might not even have been necessary). Also, the catering staff was surprisingly accommodating. My husband and I are huge foodies and they allowed us to forgo salad (boring) and I provided them with a vichyssoise recipe comprised of a chilled cucumber, melon and mint soup- perfect for a warm June day. Additionally, since we had an evening of open bar, they permitted me to also provide a beautiful "mocktail" recipe of lavender lemonade that complemented our color scheme so that our guests could have something non-alcoholic and refreshing before a night of food, dancing, and libations. We also opted for the guacamole station before the white glove plated dinner and 3 months after the wedding, I am STILL receiving complements about how outstanding all the food was. I thought that since it was a Marriott and we were using a few vendors not on their suggested list that we would be penalized, when in fact we simply had to provide the requisite insurance certificates. Brittnee's experience also aided us in making great economical choices as far as the floral selections went. With such a big space, she suggested alternating high and low floral arrangements to add grandeur and volume to the space. Perhaps the best part of the entire experience is the grand tasting where you can see, taste, and take part in a mock wedding. This is not tot bee missed and really helps you nail down your food selection choices. Another element to our wedding included a flag ceremony (it was Flag day and my father is a deceased veteran) and Brittnee and the VFW along with the American Legion Post did a 4 gun salute and folded up the flag and presented it to me and gave the blank shells to my husband. They had to clear it with the police and post a notice in all the elevators as well as notify other hotel guests via a notice under their doors. If that wasn't going beyond the call, I don't know what is. My 1 and only complaint was that the catering staff cut the cake slices too big and we wished there was more. Needless to say the wedding surpassed expectations as well as the hotel and the entire staff.Sent on 09/30/2019
