I rarely, if ever, describe events this way, but want you to know I am still ecstatic (floating in the air) about how well the wedding, reception and our family gathering at our house on New Year's Day went. I know you were a major reason why things went so well at the Omni Mandalay and couldn't be more happy with how it all turned out. The whole event met, if not exceeded, our very high expectations for a great and memorable family event! For those great memories, I can't thank you enough for the outstanding work you did behind the scenes!
Mark Bernet, Father of the Bride
The wedding turned out beautiful and the team was a delight to work with! We had over 60 rooms booked for my wedding weekend and the hotel staff did a great job accommodating everyone with great customer service even though it was a very busy holiday weekend (NYE). I would definitely recommend the Omni Mandalay to anyone!

What a fabulous evening! You must use Christina when you book the Omni Mandalay for any and every event! She is the most wonderful person to work with! From start to finish, Christina understood everything that I wanted for the evening of our son's rehearsal dinner and she produced an evening that was spectacular! She heard everything I had said and anticipated in advance what needed to be done. She was so tied in with the catering staff that they produced the most magnificent dinner. She coordinated with each of my vendors to make a smooth and perfect appearance for my music, photographer, centerpiece designer and audio visual company, which was in house at The Omni. It was a magical evening at the Omni Mandalay and I will forever be in their debt for receiving the special evening that I had dreamed of for our son and daughter-in-law. You couldn't possibly find a venue for any event that could that ever be better than my experience at the Omni Mandalay Dallas with Christina Pickering!

Awesome venue! Omni Mandalay was a perfect venue for our wedding....we could not have been happier with our choice! Service was excellent. We had a two-day ceremony and several guests stayed at the hotel for the weekend, everything was perfectly handled by the hotel staff and everyone enjoyed the wedding and their stay!

We used the Las Colinas ballroom and it was absolutely amazing... everything was perfect and the caterers from the hotel did a great job. Our guests really loved it.
Jeff and Keren Benjamin, Bride and Groom
Amazing Venue! We booked about a year in advance, and we don't regret it! We worked with Christina Pickering and she was amazing! She answered all of our questions, regardless of how many emails we sent! The food that we selected was amazingly delicious and the portions were a lot larger than we expected! The staff during the event were wonderful! We did not have one negative thing happen and our guests could not stop complimenting how wonderful everything was!
Nadia Garcia, Bride
My guests were very taken care of and the rooms were beautiful. The rehearsal dinner was amazing. The food was delicious, presented very well, and all on time. The coordinators were so easy to work with and answered all my questions right away.

Beautiful! This hotel smells of fresh flowers from the minute you walk into the lobby. I fell in love with their outside garden area for our ceremony, and then when it rained on our wedding day, they took amazing care of us put us in a gorgeous ballroom for our ceremony. We looked at a lot of different venues, most of them had beautiful outdoor venues, but their indoor back-ups didn't wow us. The Omni Mandalay is a beautiful hotel inside and out. And to top it off, we had a lot of out of town guests and they took very good care of them. Our guests told us on multiple occasions what a great hotel it was and how nice and accommodating all of the emcees were. To top things off, Christina the catering manager was always on top of things! She consistently replied to all of my emails and phone calls throughout the planning process and was there for every step the day of to make sure the day was perfect. I highly recommend booking the Omni for your wedding!

Please understand that Heather and I can not say enough great things about Christina Pickering but the entire staff was fantastic to us - from the valet guys, bellmen, front desk, concierge, restaurant wait staff, room service, management, all those that worked on our reception, and from everyone I am forgetting. The Omni family brought our families together for an incredible celebration that we will never forget and we owe you utmost gratitude!! The love and care that we all received from the Omni was exceptional. Even though we felt much love from everyone on staff - special recognition has to go to Christina Pickering, who from our first meeting with her a year ago made us feel very special. She exceeded every expectation we had - Christina was a God sent to Heather and I and to entire party.
John Masterson, Groom
Christina Pickering was absolutely AMAZING! Her attention to the details we requested and always being available was superb. Having being in the event industry for 22 years, Christina's professionalism and work ethic did not go unnoticed.
Kurt Kjellstrom, Event Planner
Excellent team work of the staff with set up and implementation of the party. We were so impressed with the exquisite cuisine, beautiful table settings, and smooth service. Christina Pickering and Barbara Culpepper were the best team I could imagine. My parent’s vow renewal was a phenomenal success with them. I cannot express my appreciation enough. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
