Fantastic venue!

Our wedding and reception at the Hilton was perfect! Our wedding coordinator, Katie, communicated with us every step of the way and expertly made our vision for the ceremony and reception a reality. Katie and Todd, our day of coordinator, made sure everything ran smoothly the day of our event and thought of every detail. They were both fantastic! Our guests raved about the food (we had a taco bar that everyone loved!) and all of the staff were so welcoming. Everything you need for a wedding except for a DJ and photographer were included in the wedding package, which made planning easier than expected. The reception hall was beautiful and spacious, with lovely chandeliers. Overall, we’d highly recommend the Hilton for your wedding!

Beautiful wedding venue & convenient

I fell in love with the Hilton Christina as soon as I walked in the door. It is a stunning hotel and matched my vision perfectly. I got married on NYE so it was very convenient to be able to party into the new year & then be able to just walk to our hotel room! Made it safe for my guests as well. The Hilton packages make your wedding planning experience stress free as they include the catering and alcohol and have partnerships to supply your flowers & cake. We only needed to find a DJ and photographer!
