We are closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation with the Marriott. We hope that the increased availability of vaccines will significantly improve the safety of our wedding event and allow for a comfortable celebration environment. We will evaluate the need for safety protocols as the event gets closer, and will update this page as necessary.
