Unique Fall Waterfront Wedding Venues
Hotels are a popular option for weddings of any size, but they’re especially suitable for small events. Oftentimes, if you’re looking to have your special day in a scenic area like Niagara Falls, real estate is at a premium near the unique waterfront afforded by the Falls. If you’re looking to have a fall waterfront wedding in Buffalo, NY, or Niagara Falls, NY, then odds are you’re going to be considering one of the many properties that Ellicott Development offers. In Niagara Falls, the Giacomo Hotel provides an elegant atmosphere for your special occasion. The space can hold up to 50 people and boasts elegant wooden floors, beautiful artwork, and a gorgeous view of the falls.
In fact, there are quite a few reasons you should consider having your wedding at an Ellicott Hotel Ballroom or Events Center.
Ideal for Guest From Out-of-town
For starters, they’re perfect locations for when you have guests coming from out of town. Travel is always difficult, and it’s especially stressful when your guests are traveling far from home or to a popular destination like Niagara Falls. If you have friends and family coming from out of town, having your wedding at a hotel is an excellent option, especially considering guests don’t have to worry about finding accommodations since they can simply get a room in the hotel itself. Having the event at a hotel also eliminates the necessity for transportation to and from the wedding venue. This way, your guests can enjoy the party, and they don’t have to worry about renting a car, getting lost in an unfamiliar area, or not being able to imbibe at the event.
Ellicott Hotels were designed with aesthetics in mind, which means you can have the ceremony and reception in one of our gorgeous spaces. You can work with a hotel’s event planner to have your reserved areas decorated to your liking, and be assured that every space will look photo-ready on your big day. Although at-home weddings have their own classic charm, they just can’t compete with a hotel when it comes to pure luxury and glamour.
When you work with an Ellicott Hotel wedding venue, we can offer packages with a range of features and prices to suit your personal needs, big or small. Typically, the fewer guests the hotel needs to accommodate, the less expensive the package will be. Additionally, you may be able to get everything you need in one place; for example, many of our Hotels have restaurants on-site and are available for catering, and many have lounges for drinks and hosting cocktail parties.
Often, couples have the ceremony at one location and the reception at another one. When you choose a hotel venue, you can host both events in the same place. Since hotels often have a variety of spaces at their disposal, you can even have the ceremony and reception staged for drastically different atmospheres.
