    Great venue

    We met Bryce Johnson at a wedding show and immediately hit it off. I really loved her positive energy. Bryce was very responsive and we discussed the details of our 2 day South Asian wedding and talked over our budget. Bryce was able to work with outr budget and make our dreams a reality of having an outdoor dockside ceremony by the water, which was always a dream of ours. They also allowed us to have outside catering. Very few vendors in the Charlotte area are this accommodating and are as culturally sensitive as Hilton University Place, which we are very grateful for. Before our initial meeting, Bryce also did research on some of the cultural aspects of a Bengali wedding which I truly appreciated. We knew we made the right choice by signing up with Bryce and Hilton University Place and we know we are in great hands for such a momentous day in our lives.

    Hilton Charlotte University Place's reply:

    Thank you Tasnuva for your sweet words! I am beyond excited for both of your events. You & Matt are the sweetest couple. I look forward to planning with you, as well as learning even more about the special details that create Bengali events. Here at Hilton University Place, we are always open to customizing our space, food and whatever else it takes to best fit your needs. Looking forward to seeing you soon! 😊

    I will just start off saying that my wedding ceremony and reception was a success all because Bryce went above and beyond. Anything I needed Bryce made sure I had and I forever grateful. The food was amazing. The bartender did an excellent job! Everything was just beautiful!

    Lawanda,
    Thank you for all of the positive feedback!

    I am beyond happy to hear that you and your guest had a great time. It was a pleasure to be a part of your big day!

    We would love to have Dwight and you for your anniversary.

    Hope to see you soon!

    Warmly,
    Bryce
