Intimate wedding at the Sofitel, Philadelphia
My husband and I got married at Sofitel Philadelphia with an intimate wedding cocktail and reception. We had only two months between our engagement and wedding, and despite the short amount of time we could see several venues in Center City, Philadelphia. Sofitel stood out from others with its spacious wedding venue which was the right size for our small party. We had the cocktail, ceremony and reception all in the same room. Starting from the first day of planning, Michael Mitloff has been very kind, understanding, attentive and professional. He has always greeted us with a big smile at the lobby and managed every detail with such efficiency. He understood our needs and directed us to a great photographer and floral designer. He reserved us a great couple’s suite to get ready on the day of the wedding. Our guests praised the attentiveness of the staff on the wedding day and they even said that they had the best wedding dinner. It was very delicious! We should also mention that Valerie and Amir have been very helpful and kind during the reception. Everything moved very smoothly throughout the night even though we requested a couple changes in the wedding program at the last minute. Now looking back, we think that our wedding couldn’t been any better and we are so happy that we made the best decision by choosing the Sofitel in Center CIty, Philadelphia.Sent on 06/10/2019
