We want the couple to feel that all they have to do is show up looking fabulous for their ceremony. Every couple will have a dedicated wedding consultant to plan and orchestrate their dream wedding. Other venues may provide a coordinator, but the guest is still left to call each vendor and set up services. Our consultants do the work for the bride and groom and work directly with each vendor and book every reservation and service for the bride and groom. Our consultants serve as the guests’ personal concierge and no detail goes unnoticed.

The Inside Scoop on Planning a Wedding at The Four Seasons Hotel Las Vegas, NV

Tuesday, June 21st, 2011

The Four Seasons Hotel Las Vegas is located right on the Vegas strip, at the south end just steps away from world-class gaming, entertainment and nightlife. The Four Seasons Hotel Las Vegas is an impeccable, five-diamond  hotel that caters to every taste and style. Dennis Silknitter, the Assistant Catering Director has worked in the hotel industry for over 15 years and we were honored to chat with Silknitter who gave us a sneak peak on what it is like planning a wedding at the Four Seasons Hotel Las Vegas.


GO: What is your unique role when it comes to a couple’s wedding day and how does your property distinguish a couple’s experience as opposed to getting married somewhere else? Will the couple have a dedicated person from your staff on location throughout the day?
DS
: The first impression is our response time at the initial inquiry, then spending quality time over the phone to listen to their key needs and painting the picture of how their special day will unfold. We start our tour in our ‘Wedding & Event Planning Salon’, a private venue where we meet with couples and plan their event from start to finish. A welcome sign with both their names greets the guests of honor as they enter. The Wedding and Event Planning Salon has many pictures of past events, wedding cake displays, a themed guest table, pictures of our food and beverage presentations. We then sit down and show an introduction video of our hotel that allows them to see previous indoor/outdoor events, the spa, Verandah restaurant, and most importantly how photography is taken throughout our property. Either myself or a member of our team is dedicated to the couple from the initial meeting through their special day.

GO: From start to finish, what can a couple expect if they choose to get married at your property?
DS
: We understand the importance of being responsive, and we treat each bride and groom as if they are the only event we are planning all year. We do not offer inclusive packages. Instead every aspect is truly customized based on their individual ambiance and budget preferences. We like to say we partner with them, holding their hands throughout the planning process.

GO: If you had to describe your property in three words, what would they be?
DS:
Intimate, Exclusive and World Class

GO: What are the unique locations that a couple can host their ceremony and reception at in your venue?
DS:
We recently enhanced our preferred outdoor venue called the Fountain Terrace, which is a private lush oasis, with a cascading waterfall as a backdrop. The space starts with a winding pathway, which is perfect to butler pass a specialty drink on the arrival of your guests. Then guests can enjoy a fine dining experience poolside, complete with a waterfall and the evening lights of the Mandalay Bay Resort tower.

GO:Do you have areas where a couple can elect to take their wedding pictures at your property?
DS:
We have a stunning Grand Staircase, which may be blocked for private photo sessions, and has natural sunlight on both levels, that maximizes the lighting. Other options include a fountain at the front drive and sitting area with a fireplace in the main lobby that creates a residential feeling.

GO: Do you have customizable packages? Tell me a little bit about them?
DS:
We take pride in customizing each couples experience. We offer a broad, award-winning menu that can easily incorporate family tradition, culture or other preferences. We custom-tailor packages based on the couples ambiance and budget preferences.

GO: Food is such an important element at a wedding; tell me about your menus/culinary team?
DS:
When is comes to food, if you can imagine it, we can create it. Our talented culinary team partners with the bride and groom to create a menu based on their vision. A cocktail reception featuring comfort food with a modern twist, a plated affair with fine dining quality, the possibilities are endless. Our in house pastry chef works with the bride to create a customized cake of her dreams.

GO: What is the first thing a couple should do if they are interested in getting married at your property?
DS:
Call 702.632.5000. Most of our clients do not live in Las Vegas, so we suggest scheduling a personalized site tour with a member of our catering team.

GO: Does your property have any unique features (i.e. wedding website) that you would like us to share with our readers?
DS:
Visit www.fourseasons.com/lasvegas, which features a video that highlights our wedding offerings.
