- Wedding: October 2009
My wedding weekend (Oct. 2009) was the first time I had ever been to Tucson. I planned a destination wedding in Tucson (we live in SC) and we had our wedding at the Westin La Paloma Resort & Spa. I worked with Donal Drayne (Catering Manager) to plan the wedding details and I can?t stress enough how wonderful he was to work with!
As I live on the east coast, we did a lot of our correspondence via email and phone. Donal was a pleasure to work with from the very first conversation that we had. He was very responsive to my emails and phone calls and certainly made it much easier on me since I was planning from such great distance.
The resort was beautiful and has many wonderful areas for photos. We had our wedding at the Catalina Basin, which has the mountains as a backdrop. Our reception was in the Cottonwood room, which has an amazing terrace just outside that offers beautiful views of Tucson at night. Both the Catalina Basin and Cottonwood room were perfect for our special day. All of the resort employees were so helpful, kind, and accommodating to us and our guests.
Our wedding went absolutely perfect; I couldn’t have asked for a more memorable day!
