    Everything I could have imagined & more!

    I cannot say enough about how amazing the Graduate team was for our NYE2019 wedding. From the minute I walked into the lobby, I knew this place was where I needed to have my wedding. The Grand Ballroom exceeded my every expectation and Elise and her team made everything PERFECT all the while calming my every anxiety. From the get-go working with Elise and her team was fun and they made everything a breeze, which I didn't think was possible. Our big day was seamless and I cannot imagine having it anywhere but the Graduate. Our guests are still raving about how great the food was, how unbelievable the ballroom looked and how much they loved their rooms! I cannot recommend the Graduate team enough, you will not regret it :)

    Experienced team, flawless execution, perfect wedding experience

    I could not recommend Elise & the team at the Graduate enough! From the beginning of the planning to the very end of the reception, everything was flawless. Our wedding date was 10/05/2019 and we had our ceremony on the Terrace, happy hour in L'Apogee, reception in the Biltmore Ballroom, and breakfast the next day in the Summit Rooms. Elise was incredibly experienced and helpful in every step of the planning process. She helped arranged places for pictures, helped choose the best layout for the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception, and helped coordinate with the separate vendors (photography, cake, band, and flowers). The banquet team ensured the happy hour and reception were just as flawless. I truly had such a wonderful experience with the staff at the Graduate and highly, highly recommend you book your wedding there.

    Special shout-out to Elise: The morning of my wedding, the florist was supposed to come to the hotel to pin the boutonnières to the tuxes. For some reason, she sent someone who was not able to pin the boutonnières. I heard one mention of it, Elise stepped in, told me not to worry about it, and handled it herself. I so appreciated her handling that situation. Thank you Elise!!
