What our clients are saying about us:
“We had an amazing experience at The Cotton Room. It is a truly beautiful venue with brick accents to distinguish your party from the generic hotel ballroom. Even more importantly the people who work at The Cotton Room are beyond incredible. All the way up to my wedding they actively helped make it less stressful and on the big day helped it to go off without a hitch. I would highly recommend them and if I had to do it all over again I wouldn’t change a thing.”

THE BEST DECISION
“As soon as we walked into The Cotton Room, we fell in love and knew it would be the best decision for our wedding….and I wasn’t wrong! We worked with Summer and she made absolutely everything so easy and relaxed for us! Meeting with her was like meeting with an old friend, absolutely no stress and totally comfortable. The Cotton Room staff was all unbelievably kind and helpful in making our big day a dream come true. From the delicious food and drink to not having to worry about ANYTHING on my wedding day except getting down the aisle, The Cotton Room is the complete package and worth every penny! We would recommend to every couple!”
