    Professional service, personal care.

    Michelle Kerkeslager and her team were easy to work with, responsive to my requests and provided helpful suggestions to make my daughter's post wedding brunch an elegant, well-organized event. Michelle provided professional service in an empathetic manner.

    Wonderful Wedding!

    We had a beautiful wedding at the Westin in June. Our guests were most complimentary of the food and the drinks. Finally, wedding food that doesn't taste mass produced! Michelle was there the night of, and did a wonderful job. Ron was the organizer of the event, and he was responsive to my emails. I would make sure to double check your information though, as he was forgetful for things he told us in person. Very reasonably priced and a great room block rate!
