Friday night took me to Omaha's Magnolia Hotel for the wedding of two of my newest friends, Michael and Leandrea Monaghan, and three hours of great vocal standards. It was a pleasure to celebrate the wedding of this charming couple in such a classic venue as the Magnolia Hotel. Renovated in 2007, and designed after Florence, Italy's Bargello Palace, the hotel proudly shows off its 1920's Italian heritage with a host of architectural details and classic materials such as travertine and marble. The banquet room decor was stylish, understated, and elegant, and the service was top notch. Planning a wedding? Consider this venue for your downtown reception.
