Wedding Reviews

 

Table Setting

“We had a winter wedding in January at this venue. In short, it was amazing. The whole hotel staff did an amazing job of making our day special to us. In long, we met with Kathy Sanders sometime last March, and she walked us through the whole process. She was pleasant to work with and did a lot to help us out. As you may know, or you will soon find out, planning weddings are a handful, and Kathy was did a good job of keep us on track and assisting with decision making. She also let us customize the packages to suit our needs and wants. “

“We had the best experience hosting both our ceremony and reception at Hotel Bethlehem! Kathy Sanders was amazing to work with from the day we initially chose it as our venue. She was always available to answer any questions and offered us helpful hints along the way. We had a very large wedding and all of our guests felt very well taken care of. Staff asked my husband and I multiple times throughout the day and night if there was anything they could do for us/get us and it was very appreciated! We had the best night ever and wish we could do it all again. ”

“If you’re looking for a wedding venue, the choice is easy – Hotel Bethlehem. Not only is the venue beautiful, but the cost is surprisingly affordable. We were lucky to work with Kelsey, one of the hotel’s Wedding Specialists. Kelsey was wonderful to work with and made the entire planning process extremely easy.
