JW Marriott Las Vegas Resort & Spa was recently named “2008’s Best Wedding Ceremony Location” from Las Vegas Bride magazine. On December 10, the catering team accepted this special award.
Voted by peers and bridal couples, this prestigious distinction was one of 21 industry categories declared. “We are very honored to be selected as best wedding venue by our colleagues and most importantly, the bridal parties that we serve,” said Director of Event Management Joy Francis. “The venue selections we provide are unparalleled combined with the highest level of service offered. You really have to see our wedding space to believe it!”
Nestled in the foothills of Red Rock Canyon in the upscale community of Summerlin, the resort offers six unique wedding locations with capacities ranging from 50 to 400 guests and a wide range of traditional catering venues and private restaurants to choose from.
What was recognized with this recent award is the diversity of space that the resort has to offer. JW Marriott Las Vegas showcases two conventional ballrooms and two very unique ballrooms, one round with a vaulted ceiling and massive wraparound outdoor terrace and another luxurious room with fireplace, fabric walls and inviting patio.
For a truly one-of-a-kind event, the resort boasts a rustic lodge with formal patio and lawn or a unique social catering suite oozing a penthouse feel with cathedral ceiling and magnificent views of the Las Vegas skyline. For those wanting to step back in time, the resort has an extraordinary venue tucked away in a private corner of the property with dark wood paneling, plush banquette seating and a floor-to-ceiling glass loggia overlooking the exquisite grounds.
And it is the lush gardens and waterways that inspire bridal parties time-after-time. 54 acres of grassy nooks and treed pathways guide the bride and groom to endless ceremony possibilities. The favorite outdoor setting, however, is the wedding gazebo arbor (fit with an elegant chandelier) and perfect for the ceremony with stone walkway offering a naturally beautiful yet flexible space with nature surrounding.
As Catering Sales Manager Michael Testagrossa attests, “1,000 over joyous brides can’t be wrong!”
