    Emily Hayman at the Westin made sure that everything ran smoothly which it did. She added special touches like bringing wine and cheese to my suite the night before the wedding and made sure to have two glasses of champagne waiting for my husband and I when we arrived for the reception from the church. She was amazing. (And the food was spectacular).

    I was an out of town bride, so I had both my room blocks and my ceremony at The Westin. The rooms were nice, the ceremony space was lovely, and they were absolutely AMAZING to work with. Responsive, accommodating, and pleasant. Highly recommended!

We always love getting to Floralize for a wedding at The Westin New Orleans Canal Place. It is a beautiful venue with wonderful views, as well. The staff there is always friendly, nice and very easy with which to work. Marguerite is fantastic, always accommodating and super friendly, available and organized. All of which is very important to us and should be of utmost importance to any bride planning a Fabulous New Orleans Wedding. We cannot say enough great things about Marguerite and The Westin...
