I am still in awe of the incredible service my family and I received from Dee Wood, Ashley Faulkenberry and the entire staff at The Ballantyne Hotel!! My wedding was beyond exceptional! No question went unanswered, no concern went unaddressed and no request was unmet!!! From the delicious menu to our stay, anything we requested, Ashley made sure we got it!! Ashley even fixed my wedding dress bustle before the reception!!! There is no better venue than The Ballantyne Hotel! The food was phenomenal and prepared to perfection and our honeymoon suite was decorated with roses and included wine, chocolate covered strawberries and the sweetest, congratulatory note! It was truly a dream come true!!Sent on 12/05/2017

Our Indian Wedding Reception at The Ballantyne
The Ballantyne Hotel is obviously a beautiful location, but what really makes this the perfect event venue is the staff. From booking to planning to the day-of staff, we were beyond impressed by how warm, welcoming the staff there handled our wedding planning process.
We worked with Emily in sales and Rebecca in events and have nothing but high praise for both of them! They were such a dream to work with and ensured our 250 person event ran smoothly. They're so good at making sure everything has been thought out logistically and really work with you to make your creative ideas come to life.
Being a food blogger, I was especially excited to get the chance to create a custom food menu with the culinary team. Our guests were excited and delighted by our wedding menu :)
I would HIGHLY recommend The Ballantyne Hotel for your wedding or event!

For my wedding weekend I wanted to stay somewhere I knew would take care of me, my wedding party, and my husband! However, The Ballantyne went above and beyond! Emily (Director of Catering) had cookies and Pierre delivered when I checked in. Then the day of the wedding they had the room fully decorated with roses, candles, chilled champagne and chocolate covered strawberries. Emily and The Ballantyne helped to make my weekend one to remember. The attention to detail and service was worth every penny!
