A Wishful Wedding Comes True at The Square & Hilton West Palm Beach
It was a dream come true after many obstacles and months of planning - Melanie Marriot and Damian Jackson tied the knot under The Wishing Tree with an intimate group of family and friends.
With couples having to delay their weddings due to the COVD-19 pandemic, The Square and Hilton West Palm Beach partnered with Cleveland Clinic to find a couple who had to postpone their special day through a contest to win an expense-free ceremony under The Wishing Tree and a bridal suite and weekend of festivities at the hotel.
"Pure disbelief and excitement! I never win anything and to finally win something, on this scale, was absolutely amazing," Melanie shared of winning the contest.
Complementing the ceremony at The Square, the wedding weekend featured a welcome cocktail reception at Galley, as well as a reception dinner with close family, and a private poolside cabana experience at Hilton West Palm Beach.
