Weddings, Reunions, and Family Gatherings

The Historic Plaza Hotel provides the perfect setting for an unforgettable western wedding, family reunion or gathering, laced with history and an unmatched feeling of the Old West. We can accomodate any size group from an intimate gathering to a great family celebration. Large groups will fill our Ilfeld Ballroom as it has a seating capacity of 300 guests.
When using our Ilfeld Ballroom for your social event, our Foyer is included as well. The Foyer includes a grand staircase that provides a superb photo setting for you and your wedding party, and the staircase conveniently leads upstairs to the bridal suite. The Foyer also lends itself nicely to hosting the banquet bar, guest book table, cake table, and receiving line.

Smaller groups fit well in our 'Conservatory', a lovely meeting room with brick lined walls and floor that sits just behind our front desk on the lobby level. Or, Salon A, just downstairs, which provides a more private meeting space with well windows that give natural light and original stone walls offering historical ambiance.

Wedding and Family Event Planning

Weddings are big events, and important ones, especially to the bride. Engaged couples want everything to go right, but wedding planning takes time, and it helps to have experience at hand where your wedding is being held. The Historic Plaza Hotel's team is experienced and ready to roll up its sleeves to work and help plan and coordinate your wedding or family gathering.

The services we provide include helping you find the right photographer and the right venue for your photos, finding a florist, offering wedding cake suggestions, advice on decorating the room in your colors and style, and help in finding the right classic car, limo or carriage for your transportation! We can also help you find musical entertainment for your wedding, whether it be a DJ or a band.

We understand that we share responsibility for ensuring that the theme of the wedding is reflected in all aspects of the wedding. From the place settings, the flowers, the cake and to the wedding dress: everything should be in sync with each other. We will help to make all of this happen, and to create an absolutely memorable event.
