    We had to move our wedding up VERY last minute, the staff at the Marriott made our tragic situation turn into the most beautiful day I could have ever imagined.

    From the ceremony room décor, to the private dining room in the restaurant for our reception - everything was spectacular. Not to mention, the bloody mary bar and mimosas were fantastic! Monica in catering, and Jose in banquets were the cherries on top! Kudos to Chef Rigot as well, he put together our donut tower, and it was beautiful! (in addition to preparing all of the wonderful brunch food!) All of our guests are still talking about the delicious meal!

    Almost all of our guests stayed at the hotel as well, and really enjoyed the rooms - and especially the hospitality suite! A must have for your bridal party to get ready in!

    If you are looking to have a downtown wedding, one-stop-shop, the Marriott is a must!

    The venue was really beautiful. It suited our needs perfectly - great location, great place for guests to stay, several ballrooms, able to accommodate large events. Our coordinator, Katherine, was great! She really went above and beyond to make sure our special day was perfect!
