Meant To Be!!!
Jamie & Peggy at the Hilton Garden Inn were absolutely AMAZING! My (now) husband and I decided to move our wedding up 10 months, giving us about a month to plan, and then our original venue fell through a week and a half before our big day! Needless to say, we ended up exactly where we were supposed to be all along. The team and hotel were wonderful to work with. They were able to pull off our dream wedding with such short notice. Getting married on the beach right next to the pier was incredible. The ballroom was spectacular, the food was delicious, and it was definitely a night to remember (COVID restrictions and all!). We are so grateful for all of the work that they put in to our wedding and we could not have asked for a more perfect day. We would recommend them to anybody!!:)Sent on 08/08/2020

Dream wedding came to life!
Everything was PERFECT!! From the minute we booked our ceremony and reception sites here at the Hilton, Miha was wonderful in answering all of our questions and very responsive. We planned our wedding from Florida and had to reschedule our May wedding due to COVID. We both felt that everything was in great hands throughout this process. I felt that the Hilton did an amazing job helping us plan during the unforeseen times and did a fabulous job on our wedding day. Our wedding day went very smooth and everything was how I imagined it to be. I was very impressed with the staff and the food that was served was amazing! I had so many guests telling me how much they loved the food and enjoyed the entire wedding. We had a beautiful beach ceremony followed by a reception in the ballroom that we had chosen to decorate ourselves. Our wedding truly felt like a fairy tale and we were able to have our dream wedding at an affordable price!Sent on 10/04/2020

The Pierhouse at Kitty Hawk, NC, Hilton Gardens
Our daughter’s wedding came close to being one of Covid 19 victims. Originally scheduled for May 15, it had to be postponed to July 10. We all held our breath hoping it would even happen then. Our venue, The Pierhouse at Kitty Hawk (Hilton Gardens), and special events decorators, I doOBXWedding and Event.
With the change of date, also came changes in the way the event had to take place to make sure we all stayed within CDC guidelines. Social distancing, no buffets, masks and hand sanitizers all had to be provided. Miha Slegal, Sales manager at the Hilton Gardens and the head of food services, Will Browning, went above and beyond to make our event happen in such a way that our daughter would be thrilled with. Although we had to have the reception in the ballroom instead of the Pierhouse because of the 50% capacity regulations, as we originally wanted, the event was fantastic. The ballroom was breathtaking. The food was amazing! The Hilton staff was so helpful and accommodating. The room was beautifully decorated by I DoOBX, with draping and twinkle lights creating a magical ambiance. The ceremony was picture perfect on the Kitty Hawk Pier with the driftwood arch and chairs, also from IDoOBX.
I can’t speak highly enough of all the vendors that made our daughter and son-in-law’s wedding such a success. My daughter said it best, “it was perfect.” After the stress of the pandemic, the stress of re-arranging wedding plans and other personal setbacks, the wedding came off without a hitch.

The Hilton Garden is your one stop shopping for amazingly modern accommodations, service and a very unique venue, on the pier and beach for your wedding. The staff is beyond amazingly helpful and professional. It's all good at the Hilton Garden Inn!
There aren't many places you can say "I Do" and dance the night away over the ocean but you can at KHP!!! You have the beach, pier and a gorgeous indoor option inside the pier house if it's needed. The staff is wonderful and makes sure every little detail is taken care of. It's a photographers dream to shoot here!!
There are certain venues on the Outer Banks considered Diamonds. The Hilton Garden Inn is for sure one of those top 5 diamonds found on these barrier islands. The vintage Pier House is so cool and a perfect place to make a memory that will stand for all time. I've had the honor of performing many weddings along with the wonderful Hilton Garden Inn staff like Miha, and enjoyed every minute of it. First class from start to finish.
