I wish I could relive that day over and over again. From the start I knew I wanted my wedding at Nicotra’s. Not only is it a gorgeous venue, but the attached hotel was definitely a plus as my husband and I have a lot of out of town family/friends. From the first day we went there, Wedding Coordinator Jen Finch was amazing!!! Always in touch and so wonderful! The night before my wedding i stayed in the bridal suite with sitting room and salon set up with my mom. The morning of my wedding I woke to a lovely in-room breakfast for me and my bridesmaids which was an extra charge but so worth it! We got back from the church and got the most beautiful pictures right on the grounds! Everyone LOVED the food. The cocktail hour was gorgeous! The staff was incredible!!! The room was absolutely beautiful!!! It was everything I could’ve wanted in a wedding and so much more!!!Sent on 02/17/2019

Trevi-ballroom Reception: romantic
Our wedding reception at the Trevi Garden ballroom was held here in May 2019. I chose the Trevi because I like high ceilings with curtain drapery, resembling an indoor tent. The included catering service was terrific as our wedding guests only had compliments on the quality of the food! Sue, the coordinator at the Hilton was a pleasure to work with-upbeat, direct and organized. We had a 9-piece band play, as well, in which a stage was provided at no extra cost by Sue. The elegant lamposts, the statues and fountain within the venue offered a classic theme. The lobby of the Hilton hotel was impressive and elegant too! I got a bridal suite for my party and stayed overnight after the wedding too. The bridal suite was large in space that it accommodated my bridesmaids, hair & makeup, photographer & videography crew! Uplighting along the walls was included, we chose amber and it offered a romantic feed. Highly recommended holding a wedding here.Sent on 05/29/2019

10/10, No Regrets, Absolutely Amazing Experience
Picking Nicotra's Ballroom to get married was the best, and easiest, decision that my (now) husband and I made. Working with Sue Vaiana ensured that we had a magical wedding that was everything we hoped for and more. All of her recommendations were spot on and she was there for us every step of the way-- literally answering our emails in the middle of the night. The food and service couldn't be beat; all of our guests were extremely impressed and many said it was the best wedding they had ever been to.Sent on 11/03/2018
