When it comes to planning your wedding, you want to have confidence that every detail will be attended to. The Hotel staff is at your service to answer any question you may have.
We have a very talented team of professional pastry chefs in-house who can design and build your perfect wedding cake. However, you are welcome to bring in a wedding cake from another approved supplier. Cakes, cupcakes, or other dessert items from another supplier are subject to a dessert servicing fee.
Yes, based on availability. Wedding dressing rooms include full-length mirrors, a luxurious lounging area, wardrobe rack, privacy screen, and Hollywood-style hair and makeup station. Our dressing rooms have been carefully designed to provide the best setting for your wedding preparations. In addition to the luxurious styling amenities, custom menus for you and your wedding party are available and may include homemade breakfast pastries, fresh fruit, coffee, juices, mimosas, Bloody Marys, and champagne.
Glitter, confetti, and open flames are not permitted. You may have candles on the tables as long as the flame is contained and does not extend above the rim of the container (i.e., in a hurricane, votive, etc.). There are certain limitations in some areas. Allow us to give you ideas and suggestions that have successfully worked in the past.
Should it become necessary to cancel a definite booking, a cancellation fee will be charged. The cancellation fee will be based on the percentage shown below, which will be applied to the group’s guestroom rate multiplied by the total room nights lost, plus any applicable taxes.
The banquet revenue total includes the room rental plus the estimated food and beverage for the event. The estimated food and beverage will include your selected menu items multiplied by the agreed upon number of participants in this agreement. If a menu has not yet been selected, The Hotel will use the lowest priced entrée/menu item for each function in the agreement multiplied by the agreed upon number of participants.

This agreement may be terminated by written notice from one party to the other, provided, however, that any payments due for accommodations or services provided prior to termination shall remain due and payable.
Yes. Please discuss locations and options with your event planner.
Having a ceremony and reception take place in the same space creates ease for guests and cohesiveness for your event. Therefore, The Hotel at Kirkwood Center is happy to provide indoor and outdoor ceremony space for those who host their reception on property.
Once you establish a date, The Hotel at Kirkwood Center will provide you with a formal contract that outlines your event times, location(s) on property, and deposit schedules. Your event date will be held tentatively for one week while you review, sign, and return the contract along with your initial deposit. When your signed contract and deposit are received, your wedding date will be guaranteed by The Hotel.
The Hotel at Kirkwood Center offers a group menu tasting each winter for its wedding clients. The tasting is complimentary for the bridal couple and up to four additional guests. Private menu tastings may be contracted and scheduled upon request based on the chef’s availability. These tastings may only take place during weekdays and must be scheduled no less than three months before your event. There is a fee for a private tasting.
There are several variables that will impact your alcohol spend. That said, and very generally, here is an assumption:
• You can anticipate two drinks per guest per hour. This average will decrease slightly as the evening progresses.
With approval of the event planner, a corkage fee will be charged for each bottle opened. All alcohol must be dispensed by our staff.
Yes. Contact your event planner with dietary restrictions.
The number of hors d’oeuvres you need often depends on how long the cocktail hour is, the time of day, and if a meal will also be served following the cocktail hour.
For a cocktail reception of one hour or less, plan for:
• 3 – 4 bites when served before a full dinner
For a cocktail reception lasting longer than one hour, plan for:
• 5 – 7 bites when served before a full dinner
The night was one I will never forget
Mary with Hotel Kirkwood made my wedding dreams come true. She listened to every idea I had and made it come alive. One of the main things that sold us on HK (besides the GORGEOUS) venue, was that they set up and tore down everything for us. I was stress free knowing everything was in Mary's hands. The day before the wedding we brought her all of our decorations, some in which we had no idea where it would look best or would even work. I remember on the wedding night looking around and my eyes catching those little items that she made look even more perfect than I could have ever imagined. The food was amazing, the service was prompt, and the night was one I will never forget thanks to Hotel Kirkwood.
We are so happy with the way everything turned out
We had our wedding reception at Kirkwood and they really are top notch. The hospitality was unlike anything I have ever experienced-it felt like a five star hotel. The staff was accommodating to our needs as well as all of our guest. Holly was absolutely wonderful to work with and was very professional through the whole process making it easier to plan a wedding. The food was phenomenal and so was the cake which was all prepared by their culinary staff. We are so happy with the way everything turned and would recommend Kirkwood to anyone either for their wedding our just to stay the night!
I highly recommend the Kirkwood Hotel for your wedding!
Holly Webster and the staff at the Kirkwood Hotel were absolutely the best to work with!!! We were expertly guided through all the planning details, and throughout the wedding day itself. It was such a worry free/hassle free experience, as all details were taken care of and we could just enjoy the day! We didn’t have to stress about setting up or tearing down, unlike so many other venues. We were also told by numerous guests that the food served was the best wedding food they had ever had! Without hesitation, I highly recommend the Kirkwood Hotel for your wedding! We are so thankful for their expertise and efficiency. If you choose them, I know you will feel the same!
