The renowned French Quarter hotel is adding one more element to celebrate with its upcoming contest, awarding one couple a lavish wedding reception, valued at $46,000, for up to 200 guests. To enter, couples or friends and family of the engaged pair must follow @NewOrleansMarriott on Instagram for the length of the contest and upload a photo and caption showcasing their love story using the hashtag #MarryMeNolaContest. The contest opens midnight Jan. 15 and wraps up 11:59 p.m. Feb. 15, 2016. The reception must be set in the fall or winter of 2016.
The winning couple will be determined by judges' scores based on creativity, relevance and quality of the story and photo. Multiple entries per couple will be accepted.
Set in the brand new Riverview Ballroom, the reception will allow the happy couple to embark on a celebration of happily ever after as unique as their love story. Soaring 41 stories above the city, this one-of-a-kind ballroom in New Orleans offers an ambiance of elegance complete with panoramic views of the French Quarter, the majestic Mississippi River, Lake Pontchartrain and the Garden District. Whether dreaming of a traditional affair or something more distinctive, couples will work with the French Quarter wedding venue's innovative planning team to create a reception that captures their personalities, along with the romantic charm of the city.
Award-winning catering will add a special touch to the event and have guests talking for years to come. With a variety of dazzling menus to choose from, the lucky couple can treat their taste buds to New Orleans' locally sourced charcuterie, opt for fresh seafood or have carving stations with prime rib, top sirloin, lamb and more. Top-shelf liquor and a multi-tiered wedding cake made from scratch will top off the reception and create mouthwatering memories.
After hours of dancing and camaraderie, the happy couple and their out-of-town guests are invited to end the night in elegant accommodations inspired by the surrounding city. With many of the hotel's rooms and suites offering jaw-dropping views of Canal Street and the Mississippi River, the Marriott provides visitors the most stylish spaces for enjoying sweet dreams or hosting a post-reception rendezvous.
