CHARLESTON, WV -- (Marketwired) -- 07/16/14 -- By the time couples find themselves at the altar, they generally like to have a few issues settled. From deciding where to live, to determining a budget, the topics can be as delicate as they are critical to engendering domestic bliss. But for couples planning a wedding in 2014, the Charleston Marriott Town Center is making the financial piece a little simpler. Its limited-time wedding package is so inclusive, it makes planning the wedding as fun and stress-free as taking the honeymoon.
The Charleston Marriott Town Center has long enjoyed a reputation for being a premier wedding venue in Charleston, WV. Its elegant ballrooms, dramatic rooftop pavilion and top-notch catering options make it a distinctive choice for discerning couples. But its latest package makes all that even more affordable as well.
Available for just $30 per person plus tax and gratuity, the package includes a one-hour reception with crudités and refreshing golden-citrus wedding punch, followed by a plated dinner of seared chicken breast with garlic-herb jus, garden salad, chef's selection of vegetables and assorted rolls.
In addition to the reception and savory dinner, the package includes those signature extra touches that make the hotel known for hosting some of the best weddings in Charleston, WV. Black or white linen, cake-cutting service, place-card and favor placement and even complete tabletop settings (including the centerpiece) are all taken care of by Marriott's certified wedding-event planners. And for couples who want to raise their wedding to new heights, the hotel's renowned pavilion space is available for only $400 instead of $800. (Traditional ballroom/conference room space is included in the package.)
Another pocketbook-friendly perk is the discounted room rate for wedding guests. Just as the hotel specializes in ethnic weddings, custom celebrations and LGBT unions, its gracious hospitality is an appealing answer to the question of where to stay in Charleston, WV. Guests experience the pinnacle of modern hospitality, courtesy of the hotel's recent multimillion-dollar renovation, and the property is located next to all the best Charleston, WV attractions like the Charleston Town Center and the University of Charleston, which makes sightseeing before and after the big event a breeze.
Available only through 2014, the package may not answer all of life's big questions for a couple, but it will get them started out on the right path.

This has given rise to many as-a-service models throughout the industry and across the entire technology stack, from software to infrastructure. While this has unlocked huge opportunities to accelerate the deployment of new capabilities or increase economic efficiencies within an organization, i...

You have your devices and your data, but what about the rest of your Internet of Things story? Two popular classes of technologies that nicely handle the Big Data analytics for Internet of Things are Apache Hadoop and NoSQL. Hadoop is designed for parallelizing analytical work across many servers and is ideal for the massive data volumes you create with IoT devices. NoSQL databases such as Apache HBase are ideal for storing and retrieving IoT data as “time series data.”
