Wedding stories worth rekindling

Weddings are some of the most memorable experiences for your guests and their friends who choose your hotel to celebrate. It’s a day to be shared with the people they love, and the beginning of a lifetime of moments worth rekindling.

Hotels often find themselves at the heart of these timeless moments. Couples turn to their hosts to deliver a memorable and thoughtful experience.

When guests share, it’s not only an opportunity to unveil your exceptional wedding experience from a perspective that only your guests provide. For hotels, you can convert these once-in-a-lifetime moments into lasting impact that goes well beyond the day of the event.

Shawnee Inn – Wedding Moments

“When I was a little girl I fell in love with the Shawnee Inn and surrounding area. Skiing Shawnee Mountain, taking rafts down the Delaware, watching shows at the Shawnee Playhouse and roasting s’mores by a campfire were all highlights. I knew way back then that I wanted to get married on the big, beautiful veranda at Shawnee Inn. Many years later that dream became a reality. It was the most perfect day and even better than I could have imagined at 8 years old. The best part was sharing the magic of Shawnee with my family and friends” – Julie O.
