The Most Wonderful Weddings in the Universe

Love was in the air at the Moonrise last month! Autumn wedding season always brings lots of happy couples and their loved ones to the Moonrise. It makes sense – if you’re looking for unique wedding reception venues, the Moonrise simply can’t be beat! From our romantic couples package to our beautiful event spaces to our fabulous catering, we provide everything to make your big day perfect.

There’s nothing that brings us more joy than getting to plan and celebrate these special days with our guests, but seeing the glowing reviews they leave us afterwards is a close second! Check out what our newlyweds from October had to say about their time with us:

The perfect venue to say “I Do”

“We had our son’s wedding rehearsal dinner Saturday night in the Twilight Room at The Moonrise Hotel. I can’t describe what a complete pleasure it was working with every single person of their staff. Wendy was an incredible help in planning/organizing our event. If I emailed her, she got back to me almost immediately! This was our first child to get married so I was completely new to all of this and I truly couldn’t have done it without her. The night of the party, there was a huge accident on the highway and my husband and I were about 15 minutes late. For a party that WE were hosting. Yikes. I was frantically calling my best friend (who was already there) and she said the staff had everything under control. I had flower arrangements for the tables in our car and the second we pulled up to the hotel, there were two staff members waiting right there for us. They loaded everything onto a cart as the valet attendant took care of our car. They ushered the flowers (and us!) into an elevator and got us upstairs. Before I knew it, more staff were buzzing around us, taking the flowers to each table and helping us decorate quickly. I don’t even think our guests noticed anything! Kevin and his team were amazing. I cannot say enough great things about him/his team. We had many rave reviews on the food – it was just delicious. The evening was seamless and many of our guests said things like “I never knew this was here-it’s beautiful!” and “This place is so cool! It’s so different!” and “What a great place to have something like this!” I could not have imagined a better rehearsal dinner for our son and (now!) daughter-in-law. It was far, far beyond my expectations. (I’m almost terrified at the thought of planning any future events without Wendy and Kevin!) The Twilight Room is stunning, by the way. The view of the city is just lovely, the room has gorgeous lighting and the atmosphere was just perfect.”

“The Moonrise went above and beyond to make our day as special as possible. They were extremely accommodating and helpful. They were very easy to get and keep in contact with and responded immediately. I would highly recommend this location to anyone, it is gorgeous and worth every penny.”

“I hosted a lunch at the Moonrise Hotel’s Eclipse Restaurant the Friday before my wedding for my bridesmaids and family members who were in town. The staff at the Moonrise went out of their way to make it special by providing us a gorgeous private dining area (Gemini Room), exceptional wait staff, and yummy desserts. They were easy to work with and so considerate. We ordered off the menu for food and drinks. The food was delicious and very reasonably priced and their cocktails are creative and fun. It was the absolutely perfect way to kick off my wedding weekend!”

“We had our wedding ceremony on the rooftop terrace followed by a cocktail reception in the Twilight Room. I can’t say enough great things about the Moonrise. We chose the Moonrise because of the laid back atmosphere and the opportunity to have an indoor/outdoor wedding, weather permitting. We expected 80-100 people, and we hesitated initially because we couldn’t have a traditional sit-down reception with everything we wanted in the room with more than 80 people. But we trusted the team at the Moonrise and opted for a cocktail reception. That was one of the best decisions we made. Wendy and the team guided us through the process, and the result was spectacular. The food was amazing. No one went hungry (which was our biggest fear with a cocktail reception held at dinner time). The atmosphere was laid back. Everyone enjoyed mingling. There was enough seating that everyone was comfortable, and we were able to designate a table so our older guests could sit. If there were any hiccups, Kevin and Wendy handled them so everything went smoothly. We couldn’t have chosen a better place and we couldn’t be happier with the way everything went.”

“Everything went as smooth as possible for our wedding. The view of the city from the roof in the Twilight room is amazing. The staff there was always super responsive.”
