Don't just take our word for it

"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!”

“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.”

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!”
