    Great place to have an all indoor wedding

    If you have a lot of guests coming from out of town, the Embassy Suites is a great place to have your wedding. My guests all had a wonderful time. We planned on an all indoor wedding because weather in October in NC can be extremely unpredictable during hurricane season. They sectioned off the first two partitions of the ballroom for our ceremony and then flipped the room during cocktail hour. It was such a lovely day.

    Kellie,
    Thank you so much for your wonderful words. We loved working with you, your ceremony was truly beautiful. We wish you happiness!

    Mrs. Click

    The experience was great. I had my dream wedding and the staff and management were so flexible and listened to every detail. I was very pleased and our friends and family continue to talk about the wedding until this day. If anyone is looking for the perfect location for their wedding and reception, this is it. The Riverwalk, Cloud 9, Carolina Beach and Embassy Suites Amenities kept our guests entertained sufficiently so they could also vacation while attending our wedding. The Wedding Ceremony Was Beautiful and the Cocktail Hour was a true hit. The reception was extremely beautiful and the food was delicious. It’s what you would expect from Embassy Suites & So much more. Special Thanks To Katherine and Meredith, a mini dream team. My experience was magical and the dream team made it happen.

    Embassy Suites by Hilton Wilmington Riverfront's reply:

    We loved working with you, Mary!! We greatly appreciate the review and loved being your "dream team" at the Embassy Suites Wilmington! We wish you and Frederick the best!
