The Norfolk Marriott Waterside was a great place to have the wedding. Brian, who does the wedding planning over this was fabulous to work with. He was so easy to get a hold of, or e-mail if we had any ... Read more questions about what we wanted to do or look like. He came by the day of the wedding, said hello and offerend help if I needed it. The bartenders, wait staff, and hotel staff were so nice and very helpful to our guests. We even had a wedding crasher, but the hotel took care of that very quickly and quietly. Amazing venue!

My wife and I hosted our wedding earlier this month at the Waterside Marriott in Norfolk, Virginia. Our initial meetings with the Marriott event planning staff, namely Ryan Wynn, was nothing short of ... Read more exceptional. He immediately did everything he could to make sure we would leave for deployment knowing our wedding was going to be a success. Our coordinator Ryan Wynn, did everything he could to remain in contact with us and continue to organize our wedding. With my wife and I stationed on ships in the Persian Gulf, you can only imagine how stressful this could have been, but with Ryan's expert and professional guidance, the experience proved to be more fun and easy than anything else. We were welcomed home to a meticulous plan for a perfect reception. While we were already immensely satisfied with our service, the white glove treatment didn't stop at our return. With only months to spare and items like menu tasting and floorplans to discuss, Ryan fluidly worked around our schedule to fit everything in without a hassle. This was always transparent and we were always made to feel like his most important priority. We aren't overly complicated couple to work with but we did make a few unique requests to personalize our wedding. Instead of pushback or explanations of how these may not work, Ryan did everything in his power to give us exactly what we wanted to make our day all the more enjoyable. I felt like "no" just wasn't in his vocabulary. On top of that, he skillfully crafted a contract that not only allowed for our requests, but also kept our costs manageable, a priority for my wife and I. The contract we were officially given should be a model for all Marriott planners. My wife and I were left stress-free going into our wedding knowing that everything was in the capable hands of Mr. Wynn. The wedding reception flowed seamlessly and according to our guests, one of the best receptions they had ever attended.
