Absolutely Perfect !

WOW ! We had such an incredible wedding experience and it quite honestly could not have been any better ! Our wedding coordinator Kristen Tomasic was seriously the most talented individual that I have met and she was so supportive throughout the entire event from start to finish. Anything we needed she helped out with . The most important thing is that my wife and I felt so comfortable because we new Kristen was there the entire time.

For an Incredible event and a flawless wedding , choose the Westin and Kristen .

• The Westin Michigan Avenue did an amazing job with our reception. I would choose them all over again. It was a night we will never forget. Phyllis Washington, the wedding coordinator, made it so that we had no worries or stress about the big day. She helped us through the planning process and answered any questions that we had along the way. She was amazing to work with. They provided us with great rooms to get ready in on different floors so that we would not see each other and great breakfast treats the morning of our wedding. The cocktail hour had AMAZING food and was held in a different room. We had our reception in the Michigan Ballroom which overlooked Michigan Avenue. It was stunning. The food and service was impeccable. We have gotten so many compliments and recently engaged friends are even looking to have their receptions there now because of how wonderful the Westin was. I would recommend the Westin Michigan Avenue for any special occasion! Awesome venue and service.

My wife and I just had our wedding at The Westin Michigan Avenue and as a venue they were absolutely PERFECT! We worked with Bethany Reno and she was a perfect fit for us from the start. She was so sweet, patient, flexible and just amazing to coordinate with. She did everything she possibly could to make our experience the best it could be.

The wedding day went smoothly and just as planned. When we walked into the room we were both blown away by how gorgeous everything was. Then we were impressed by the level of service we received and I can't even count how many compliments we received on our dinner selections. The food was just incredible.

With a room full of windows overlooking Michigan Avenue and staff that gave you their undivided attention you cannot go wrong with this venue!
