We had the most amazing venue tour this weekend! All guests were greeted with a mimosa upon arrival at the Ready? Set. Wed! store. Our fabulous caterer, TOSS Catering, brought our guests a breakfast box complete with your choice of Bacon or Spinach Quiche, a tangerine, chocolate croissant, and box of OJ. Some of us indulged on site and others took it to go on the 5-Star Limos black limo.
Our first stop was at the B Ocean Hotel in Fort Lauderdale. A delightful little bistro for brunch, cool environment, and spectacular views from their ballrooms showcased this boutique hotel. The Hilton Fort Lauderdale greeted us with a five star lunch in their stunning penthouse suite. Chef Nicole prepared a mouthwatering salmon over a bed of greens and watercress followed by a succulent blackberry dessert. We washed it down with Bellini’s of course! Up next, the W Hotel.
Have you ever wondered what the W stands for? Well our guests did and they asked. The fabulous team at the W answered without hesitation. It appears that when the hotel was first toured, everyone thought the hotel was Wonderful, Whimsical, had a Wow factor, etc … to encompass it all, they named it W! This hotel is a must see … they thought of every detail! A staircase that goes through the WET pool, a helipad looking outdoor function area, your choice of ocean view studios (ballrooms) or a modern enclosed ballroom with built in lounge benches, or how about their steakhouse? AH-MA-ZING! We were greeted at the Steak 954 by staff members in line holding more delectable goodies … a five layer frozen chocolate cake and Lotus drinks. Exquisite.
Last but certainly not least, the Westin Fort Lauderdale embraced us with champagne, bridal cookies, and adorable bride and groom chocolate covered strawberries. They too have a great ballroom with aqua blue oceanic views equipped with lounge furniture for an uber cool setting. One of their many stations is the infamous Smash station. An array of fruit to choose from gets paired with your favorite liquor! A must try.
