    Amazing experience!

    The Westin ballroom was absolutely beautiful for our wedding. Everything was set up as according to plan and it ran VERY smooth. However, what/who my wife and I were extremely pleased with was the event coordinator, Lindsey. She was absolutely wonderful. Her professionalism and work ethic is on another level. Her communication throughout the entire process was impeccable. She made our wedding planning process about as least stressful as it could be. The day of our wedding, she was even better! I didn’t know that was possible. Anything my wife and I needed, (even things we didn’t even know we needed!) she provided and provided it promptly. I cannot praise the venue and Lindsey enough. If the Westin is in the running for a wedding or any event you might have, you will be very pleased with the service.

    Friendly, Helpful, and Flexible!

    The Westin team of Becky and Lindsey were the most amazing people to work with for our June wedding. They were responsive to emails, documented and remembered all discussions and decisions, were flexible with special requests and went above and beyond to make the day perfect. On the day-off, every detail was perfection and exactly as we discussed or better. Wedding planning is stressful but my husband and I were so happy with our decision to go with the Westin for our all-day event!
