Marry Me at Marriott: Courtyard Iloilo

FALL in love but only in the city of love and say yes nowhere else but at the Courtyard!

Marriott International’s first representation in Western Visayas showcases its first bridal fashion show. Just a few months after its grand launching, Iloilo’s biggest hotel is at it again elevating executions never before seen this time by soon-to-be wedded couples about to tie the knot. Marry me at Marriott is an adaptation of the Philippines’ highly sought after bridal show that yearly takes place only in Manila Marriott Hotel. This year, Marriott International makes history as it takes it closer to the people of Iloilo.

The region’s first ever international hotel invited everyone to step into the region’s newest socials venue bringing you smart and opulent spaces of more than 3,000 square feet with glorious high ceilings at 14 feet in height. Depending on set-up, it can accommodate more than 200 guests with enough space for a dance floor and grand foyer perfect for cocktails or a divine buffet set-up. Its encapsulating modern chic design naturally embraces warm tones and hues that make it a true spectacle for the eye.  But when dressed up, get acquainted to what makes it a champion on transformative concepts set for romance and love. The grand ballroom is also divisible into 4 breakout areas and function rooms fit to the size of your event. It has a sound proof partitioning system allowing maximum experience in each section. You may also make use of built in LCD projectors with 4,500 lumens, hi-definition surround sound audio system and adjustable lighting control pads to use for your advantage.

For one night only, witness a metamorphosis of slick spaces turn to an ethereal venue dolled up with immaculate drapes accented by quaint crystal tassels afloat an innocent far-reaching runway. The entire ensemble gives way to the works of pure avant-gardes in the wedding fashion industry.

Walking down the aisle were the collections of Jun Escario, Michael Leyva, Francis Libiran, and Iloilo’s very own Aisha Peñalosa, all equally celebrated designers known for their craft, unparalleled attention to detail and credible reputation.

The event was a delight for the sight as much as it was a culinary feast! Everyone’s taste buds were treated to flavours that titillated all senses in every bite and sip. The hotel’s culinary team headed by Executive Chef Chachpol Suaisom prepared an overflow of sweet and savoury masterpieces such as the chicken vol au vent, marinate salmon with dill cream cheese pancake, grilled beef salad with lemon dressing fresh herb, grilled tofu skewers with peanut sauce, shrimp thermidor with cajun brioche, and slow roasted beef with sauces amongst many other selections. Complimenting this mouth-watering experience was an array of cocktail and wine selections such as your favourite cosmopolitan, margarita, obikwa merlot, and Lindeman Sauvignon Chardonnay.
