What a great venue to work with!
Beautiful Downtown Skyline Patio
Originally our wedding was supposed to be set up outside on the rooftop. However, on our wedding day the forecast was showing rain so our reception was set up inside. Knowing that we had our hearts set on having an outdoor wedding. The Marriott staff decided to take a chance and moved everything from inside to outside on the rooftop in the span of an hour. It was unbelievable what they were able to put together in such a short amount of time. They also set up décor that was never the Marriott's responsibility such as our ceremony backdrop and cafe lighting due to shortfalls from our other vendors. When it started to rain during dinner, they once again did a phenomenal job setting up an entire indoor reception area last minute including a dance floor, photobooth and dessert area. There were so many last minute changes throughout the day and the Marriott were so accommodating. Our photographer and videographer mentioned to us that they've never seen a venue put in so much effort to ensure the success of a wedding. I want to give a special thanks to Luke, Erald, Glen, Lorry, Diana and Rosevelt. The entire staff were amazing that day however these wonderful people in particular really made our day special.
