The Franklin Hotel was the perfect place for our wedding reception. Joann Sullivan is incredible and made sure that everything ran smoothly so that I didn't have to worry about a thing! Her attention to detail is incredible. She even took our gifts up to our room to ensure that they weren't sitting out in the open. She was also extremely helpful during the planning process, suggesting other awesome vendors (DJ, florist, cake, limo, etc.) and helping us to finalize all of the decisions to ensure that the reception was flawless (including those decisions that I didn't even know existed!). All of my guests told me that it was a beautiful reception and that they had an incredible time. Many thanks to Joann, Katie, Mark and everyone else at the Franklin that made our awesome reception possible!
