MORE THAN JUST A BALLROOM
As a full-service hotel, couples who turn to the Omni San Antonio Colonnade Hotel to host their wedding can expect topnotch amenities, stunning surroundings and a dedicated staff who pride themselves in delivering exceptional service.
“It was beyond our expectations. The staff, the banquet room, the food…everything was incredible!” says Megan Linahan who celebrated their reception on April 14th at the Omni Colonnade.
Rising high above the city, the Omni Colonnade has three distinct venue spaces versatile enough to accommodate everything from an intimate bridal luncheon to a lavish wedding affair. The Grand Ballroom is the largest option, boasting 10,000 square feet that can be set up in a variety of styles to suit your unique needs. The Colonnade Ballroom, located on the 20th floor of the property, provides stunning views of the San Antonio skyline from dramatic floor-to-ceiling windows and can be divided into three smaller spaces to host more intimate celebrations or transform into a ceremony site. The third option, the La Joya Ballroom, impresses with large crystal chandeliers, elegant decor and great acoustics to create a wonderfully romantic atmosphere.
To decide what space works best for you and to make sure your wedding runs smoothly, the Omni Colonnade dedicates an experienced wedding coordinator to help with all of your planning needs.
“From the moment a wedding couple tours our hotel to the end of the reception, I am available to help them along the way with all that will take place,” says Christine Uribe, Senior Catering Sales Manager.
“Christine was wonderful to work with,” says Linahan. “She was super organized and kept me focused on the decisions we needed make. She made planning our wedding so much fun.”
In addition to hosting their reception at the Omni Colonnade, Linahan, her husband and the majority of their guests stayed at the hotel overnight.
“Omni Colonnade is pet friendly, so some of our guests brought their pups for their stay,” says Linahan. “What we loved was the hotel offers a puppy turn down service. The hotel staff made Chip and I look like the greatest wedding planners ever!”
“We work with our couples from the start, scheduling a time for them to come in and taste the food, select linens and go over all the details of the reception with our help and guidance,” says Uribe. “The week of the event we assist them in contacting all vendors that will be coming to the hotel to finalize details. And, the day of the wedding, we are here to make sure everything is going to plan and help coordinate the timeline of events.”
“Our friends are still telling us how great our wedding was and how delicious the food was. I really have to thank Christine for all the compliments, she made it perfect in every way,” says Linahan.
Along with their attention to detail and unmatched service, the Omni Colonnade’s location is a perfect choice for brides who want the best that San Antonio has to offer. The hotel provides guests the convenience of the city with close proximity to popular attractions for family and friends coming to town. Famed attractions, including SeaWorld, Fiesta Texas and the Riverwalk, are just a short drive away. Guests can stay onsite, perfect for a night of wedding fun.
