    Beautiful wedding at The Adolphus

    Many thanks to Paula and her team for our amazing wedding in the 19th Floor Ballroom @ The Adolphus hotel. My guests are still talking about the amazing food, gorgeous place settings, and top notch service. My partner and I also could not have been happier all around with how our event went off without a hitch. Thanks again, Paula and team!

    Outstanding!

    The Adolphus made planning and our wedding incredible. They are a first class hotel all around and our experience really reflects that. We had an excellent tour through all their facilities and amenities. It is an absolute, historic gem in the city of Dallas. They truly think of everything in their wedding package. Their wedding liaisons were wonderful to work with and communicate with. They are incredibly responsive and are very transparent with questions about capabilities of the venue. Paula was especially professional and helpful! We really enjoyed that it was an all-inclusive venue from lodging, to a beautiful ceremony and reception space, excellent food, getaway car, and even the cake. They are experts at weddings and even constructed time during our wedding day just for my husband and I (private time during the cocktail hour and a special last dance by ourselves). All of our guests thoroughly enjoyed how beautiful the hotel is and everyone that stayed there loved it. It was a really nice staycation for in-town guests and a nice haven for travelers. We got ready for the wedding in one of the suites and it was exceptional. It was the most beautiful hotel rooms I've ever been in and had plenty of space for all of my bridesmaids and H&MU artists to spread out. All of the food at the wedding was incredible and we even had a brunch there the morning after the wedding that was delicious as well. They made wedding planning a fun and enjoyable experience and gave us a beautiful wedding of our dreams. We can't wait to visit regularly and spend a few anniversary staycations there!

    Wedding Reception

    We highly recommend the Adolphus hotel for your wedding weekend and reception! Paula at the adolphus was truly amazing to work with. Definitely with all new Covid- 19 rules. It’s beautiful and 100% worth every penny spent. All of our guest that did and didn’t stay at the hotel loved the atmosphere and style of the hotel. It isn’t your typical hotel. There’s a lot of character and history!
