We pride ourselves on offering as many conveniences to our weddings as possible. One such option is to hold not only your reception at the Embassy Suites Bloomington, but ALSO your wedding ceremony! This saves travel time for guests, eliminates confusion and time challenges, and is just easier in general. There are no transportation issues. And the cost is reasonable to do so as well! And don’t forget, if you need recommendations for things such as a wedding officiant, musicians, etc… just ask!
We have two different spaces to host a ceremony onsite – our Open Air Atrium, and our Ballroom. I’ve described them a bit below and also included photos of each.
OPEN AIR ATRIUM
Our atrium is located in the center of our hotel. It features a glass ceiling, offering natural light that is great for photos. The trees, greens, and other architectural details such as water walls that surround where your vows are said. Little to no decorating is needed. This space seats up to about 150 comfortably.
For a more private wedding (or for a larger guest count) our ballroom also serves as a great ceremony location. This space can seat up to 400 guest. One great thing about the ceremony in the ballroom is that all decorating is dual purpose! It’s used for both your ceremony and reception. After your ceremony is concluded, your guests move out to the atrium for the cocktail hour while we transform the space into the reception setting.
