    Perfect start to our happily ever after!

    From the moment I found The Desmond, I knew it was a special place. As an out-of-state bride, I depended a lot on TheKnot reviews and found many outstanding reviews. Within hours of sending a message for information, I had heard from Karen, who would remain my point person for the next 18 months of wedding planning. Since all of our guests would be traveling for our wedding, it was very important to me that my guests were able to stay somewhere nice after a night of partying so finding a venue in a hotel was ideal. I had made a couple of trips to the area to visit venues, and fortunately, on that first trip, I did visit The Desmond. I was immediately taken back by the charm that the reception hall had. The cocktail area was beautiful and bright with many windows and would be ours for the night. The reception room itself was intimate and romantic with beautiful molding and chandeliers. Even better, The Desmond was undergoing renovations which to my happy surprise meant a new dance floor, beautiful and neutral carpeting, and a modern and updated bathroom. Aesthetically, I knew it would photograph well and I could picture myself dancing the night away there. Beyond that, the food was excellent! All of our guests left with full bellies. More than that, the pricing of our meals was also perfect. Finally, and this was a huge part of my huge satisfaction with The Desmond, Karen was such a blessing to work with. From the first moment we started speaking, she worked with my husband and I to make sure everything about our day was perfect. She made sure we had the desserts we wanted, the uplighting included, the meals to accommodate our friends and families with allergies and dietary restraints. She kept me updated with how many rooms were taken in our room blocks. She made sure that my dad and husband had their favorite beers. She worked with my parents to arrange breakfast the next morning for our many guests who stayed overnight. She met with us many times in the months leading up to the wedding and was always available to chat and was very prompt with emails. Even though she wasn't scheduled to be at work late on the Saturday we got married, she made sure to be there to see my husband and I just before we walked into the reception and to wish us well. We cannot say enough great things about The Desmond and would absolutely recommend paying them a visit if you're looking for venues in the area! Thank you Karen, Kevin, and everyone at The Desmond for making our wedding the most perfect day and the perfect start to our happily ever after!

    Perfect Day

    We got married June 22nd 2019 at the Desmond Hotel. Our ceremony was at the gazebo and our reception was on the deck. We also had our rehearsal dinner on location as well. Beautiful location and easy “one-stop- shop.” The day couldn’t have been more perfect. Both Kevin’s were absolutely fabulous! They were both very attentive and relieved all of my stress that weekend. Everything was set up exactly how I imagined and the food was amazing. I would definitely recommend The Desmond for any event, especially weddings.
