    Amazing wedding day

    Theresa and Kelly met all of my expectations! They were very organized and always responded promptly. I had a lot of ideas and questions which they always answered and helped bring my vision to life. Leading up to the wedding, I was able to drop off all of my decor which they set up and they were very thorough with the timeline for the day of the wedding. They brought us anything we needed the day of the wedding. No request was denied. They truly went above and beyond what we needed! The day of the wedding, they contacted all of the vendors and made sure they knew where to set up. The hubby and I were so busy that they boxed up our food with a few extra surprises in our honeymoon suite. At the wedding, no one was hungry at all. We had plenty of apps, servicing stations, plus the first course and the actual meal. They truly went the extra mile. I trusted them 100% and they did not disappoint. I plan on having other events at the Hilton due to the service.

    Best Night Ever!

    My husband and I originally wanted to book the Hilton because my husband’s whole side of the family is not from Delaware. We wanted a quick and easy access to their hotel rooms. His family was even able to get it for a discounted rate. We were extremely happy to work with Hilton and their wedding coordinators. They made the process easy for us. Communication was wonderful and it felt very organized. I had complete trust in them to make the dream come to real life. Everything was beautiful and the food was delicious. The groom and bride’s parents were extremely pleased and impressed on how attentive the team was.

    We can’t thank them enough for all their hard work! The day was perfect with no issues that we were aware of! I would recommend the Hilton to anyone getting married/private event.

    Beautiful venue, easy process

    Having our wedding at Hilton Wilmington/Christiana was the best decision ever! The package we chose was all inclusive which made it so much easier to plan a wedding in 4 months. They gave you an option of 2 bakers to choose your wedding cake from (which was included in the package), and a choice of 2 florists to choose your centerpieces from (which were also included although we didn't do flower centerpieces, we used the florist for our bouquets). We had our ceremony in the courtyard which was so beautiful and the reception in the banquet hall which was beautiful and spacious. Teresa was so easy to work with and was very responsive. She walked us through the whole process and kept us on track to making sure that we had everything ready to go. It was honestly a very easy process and we had the most beautiful and fun wedding we could pull off in 4 months!! The food was delicious (we chose the salmon and stuffed chicken option) and the open bar was great too! Having a room for the night and rooms blocked off for our guests was very convenient! The location is close to the highway and easy to get to, and there is plenty of parking. Beautiful areas to take pictures as well available on site! Having a bridal suite for the whole day, made getting ready a breeze!
