“We had our wedding at the new Potawatomi Hotel on November 22, 2014. We didn't want a long engagement and as very busy professionals, we didn't leave a ton of time for planning. With catering director Samantha Jacob helping us out, that didn't matter. She took care of it all, and was truly mindful of our needs and budget. Samantha and the staff at Potawatomi went WAY beyond what we expected—we're talking exceptional service!

While we may not be great planners, we were very particular about how we wanted our wedding and celebration to unfold (probably every catering manager's worst nightmare), but Samantha practically read our minds. She covered things that we hadn't even thought of that made our day SO memorable and nothing less than perfect. And she was so much fun to work with! Of all the places we checked out, she was just a natural fit for us.

The entrées were nothing short of excellent. We had four choices plus a kid’s meal. It was all fantastic. For 170 people, that's not always the case at weddings. And the cake, which was complimentary due to a promotion they were having, was divine! We didn't have to choose a pastry chef, but if we did, we couldn't have done any better. Seriously, I have dreams about this cake. All around great experience that made our wedding day absolutely perfect!”

  - Crystal H., Austin, TX, Wedding Reception, Winter 2012

“From the first day of planning all the way through our wedding, we felt taken care of while at the same time feeling in complete control of all of the details of our event. The venue, food, and Dell Mercado, in particular, all greatly exceeded our already high expectations. We couldn’t be more pleased with the outcome and will be recommending [Potawatomi] to friends and family.”
  - Lacey & Andy H., Milwaukee, WI, Wedding Ceremony & Reception, Summer 2012

“The food was awesome and [the] pastry chefs did an amazing job. Dell is one of the best and easiest people we worked with throughout the event planning.”
  - Anonymous, Wedding Reception, Spring 2012

“Everything was a great experience—it was like a dream come true! It was even better than I could have imagined. Dell, Brett, Erica & LC were AMAZING. Dell understood and communicated everything that I told her to the rest of the staff and they executed it perfectly! Thank you so much to everyone who made our wedding day the best day of our lives. We couldn’t have said that without you!”
  - Gina & Adam B., Milwaukee, WI, Wedding Reception, Fall 2012

“Everyone was so helpful and polite. I couldn’t have asked for anything better. You all did an amazing job. Thank you for making our big day so memorable!”
  - Kaytlen & Nick R., Zion, IL, Wedding Reception, Summer 2012

 “We are still getting compliments about our wedding. The service was excellent, the food was amazing and our cake was absolutely perfect. I knew we’d found our space when we walked into the Tribal Room. Dell was the ultimate professional, and I loved working with her over our 1+ years of planning.”
- Valerie & Pete R., Milwaukee, WI, Wedding Ceremony & Reception, Fall 2012
