    Great Wedding Venue

    We had our wedding at the Retlaw in December of 2019. The venue is beautiful, which made decorating easy. In addition to the ballroom, we rented the room across the hall which we used for a bar location and appetizers. Several guests commented that the food was the best they've had at a wedding, on how beautiful the venue is and how nice the hotel rooms were. The staff also did a fantastic job during the lead-up to the wedding and the night itself. Can't recommend the Retlaw enough.

    The Hotel Retlaw (A+) Wedding Venue!

    Throughout life we crave moments of bliss and dream about our wedding being one of those magical moments. My wedding exceeded my dreams and it was truly a beautiful day that could not have happened any other place besides The Hotel Retlaw. The wedding itself was elegant, romantic, and breath taking in all aspects. The staff made all my requests come to life and again went above and beyond to make my day magical. We had our rehearsal dinner and the entire wedding (ceremony, dinner, reception) at this venue and we are grateful we did. The food was phenomenal, the service and hospitality were above expectations, and it again (as a bride) exceeded my expectations. I would recommend this location to anyone who is looking for quality service and a wedding of your dreams.
