    A Perfect, Real Life Fairytale Wedding!

    Let me start by saying that our wedding venue canceled a week before our wedding. #Covidweddings are no joke. When I frantically sent an email to the Westgate, I thought there was zero chance our date would be available. But then, by some cosmic intervention and universal grace, Lorena emailed me that they had the date available!

    First of all, take one look at the photos of the Westgate Hotel. It’s literally that gorgeous in person! But looks alone weren’t what blew us away.

    Lorena and her team went above and beyond to accommodate us and our families. Because of COVID, we weren't able to have a reception in one of the banquet rooms. Their idea? Rent out the top-floor suite for an intimate dinner. Lorena and team are brilliant and the fact that they offered us this option was astonishing.

    We kept thinking: what's the catch? Well, after having our wedding there and being utterly blown away, I can honestly report that there is no catch, just a stunningly gorgeous venue and happy, helpful, attentive, expectation-exceeding staff.

    I have personally never received such incredible treatment from hotel staff. Not did they give us the top floor governor’s suite for our small reception, but they bent over backward to help set it up exactly how we envisioned, let us in the room to decorate, and ensure that our every need was tended to.

    Lorena was able to anticipate everything we’d need long before I thought of it. I’m just utterly in disbelief that we got to have our wedding day here. We felt like a royal wedding; the opulent decor, the attentive staff, the fine dining — everything went off without a hitch. Our families were blown away too, in disbelief that we were able to squeeze in just a WEEK before our wedding.

    There really aren’t enough positive words I can say about our experience having our wedding at the Westgate. Having our first venue cancel ended up being the best gift ever because somehow, we stumbled into a luxurious Parisian hotel that was actually more affordable than our first venue!

    We can’t thank Lorena and the Westgate Hotel staff enough for making our day one we’ll never forget. We can't wait to come back and stay for our one-year anniversary! We feel like it's really special because now Westgate is part of our story, and we'll always come back to celebrate our marriage and relive the joy of our special day.

    Thank you Westgate Hotel for making our dreams come true!

    Im still in love with my wedding!!!

    We just had our wedding 3-14-20. Vanessa the catering sales manger made my experience so easy and memorable. I’m a very picky and indecisive person but she was always very professional and understanding with any of my changes. Unfortunately the week of my wedding it was a very rainy week so the day before our wedding we had to make the decision to change our ceremony inside since it wouldn’t stop raining, long story short the day of my wedding it stopped raining and Vanessa knew how much I wanted my ceremony outside and last minute she made it happen. I was one happy bride!!! Our wedding was so beautiful we got so many compliments from our guest and even people that didn’t attend that just saw pictures. Vanessa and the the Westgate staff went above and beyond to make our day extra special and stress free. If your looking for a very elegant venue the Westgate hotel is the place for you not only are you getting excellent service but your getting Vanessa and she’s the best!!! Thank you Vanessa we couldn’t of done this without you.
    The Clemons ❤️
