    Wonderful Venue

    My husband and I are so happy we chose the Hilton for our wedding reception. They could not have been more friendly and helpful throughout the process. Mandy was organized, quick to respond, and did such a beautiful job helping us create and execute our vision. I highly recommend her and the rest of the Hilton staff.

    Wonderful Wedding

    The Hilton service exceeded our expectations! The staff was friendly and accommodating. The food was great! All our needs and requests were met. The “day after” brunch in the restaurant worked out perfectly.

    Where do I begin with how amazing Blaire and her team were. Anything we needed from the first time we met with Blaire was done to a T! Not only is Blaire fantastic, but the rest of her team needs to be commended as well! The amount of time they took to make sure everything from our grand event, went off without a hitch was amazing! For the first indian wedding they have done, they certainly did not disappoint!
