Debra Sample was our wedding coordinator who was the best! She was our go-to for everything. She answered all of our questions in a timely manner. We had our ceremony in the Florentine Room and our ... Read more reception in the Gold Room. Both rooms looked amazing. The food was great. If we wanted to change something in our package, she was great. My in-laws are from out town and they emailed her with questions about the rehearsal dinner. She was extremely friendly and receptive to them as well. I cannot say enough good things about her. She reassured everyone that everything would go off without a hitch and it did. We had a sundae bar. My mom and I cannot have ice cream so she had an assistant go out and get us frozen yogurt. A guest at our wedding had a stroke and she handled it with such ease that half of our guests didn't even know that that happened during dinner. She was amazing. The rooms were amazing. It has the elegant feel of the old hotels without the gigantic price tag.
