Spectacular EVERYTHING   posted 5/29/2013 on The Knot
"I am so glad I chose the Hawthorne Hotel for my wedding. Everything was perfect. From the ceremony, to the cocktail hour, to the reception and after. PERFECT. All my guests raved about the service and food. It's a beautiful ballroom, and up lighting makes it even more spectacular. It's a little expensive, but worth every penny." ~ Trubia/Apiccio Wedding
