  • We got married on 5/3/19 and had the most amazing wedding. Joe, our maitre'd was one of my favorite people to work with during wedding planning. Even our guest talked about how great he was. He made sure my husband and I had everything we needed and also made sure we ate which was huge!! We had a special memorial chair set up for my mom during the ceremony and Joe went as far as to give me that chair for our sweetheart table. It meant more to me than I am sure he realized. Don't hesitate to reach out to the Westwood but be sure to work with Cathy, Joe and Elizabeth. We wish we could do the day all over again!
