    I just wanted to give Angie Florence and her team a huge shout out for being so amazing and understanding during the last 2 years with changes due to Covid. Angie helped me plan the most spectacular wedding for my daughter. Unfortunately due to Covid it was postposed twice. Angie and her team continued to be helpful and understanding the entire time. I would highly recommend the Waterfront Hilton and Angie Florence to help you plan your wedding.

    Waterfront Hilton Review

    Like many couples, we had to reschedule our wedding from its original date due to the Coronavirus, but due to unforeseen conflicts, we also had to relocate our venue, and we ended up choosing the Waterfront Beach Resort for its beautiful setting and fantastic amenities.

    We worked with Vanessa throughout the near-entirety of our time coordinating with the Waterfront Beach Resort, and Vanessa was incredible at being very responsive to our numerous emails and meticulously answering each question in detail. She helped work through the many nuances and details of our wedding, which included a tea ceremony component during the early afternoon in addition to the ceremony and reception.

    The one slight hiccup occurred the week of our wedding, when we were told that Vanessa would be on vacation the weekend of our wedding, and Nancy and Semrin would be taking over. Unfortunately, there were some details that were not completely conveyed through, so the morning of the wedding did feature some stressful last-minute reminders to correct a few detail items. However, ultimately, Nancy and Semrin came through and helped make the day a wonderful experience (Semrin even get us into the rooftop bar for some wedding party photography before it opened to the public).

    Our wedding ceremony at the Vista Lawn and the reception in the Coastal Ballroom were beautiful, and our whole set-up was super well organized and convenient. Our guests also raved about the fantastic food throughout the evening, from the hors d'oeuvres to the main courses to the ice cream sundae bar and taco bar we had. The bar staff was also super attentive with making sure we had beverages when we needed them.

    Overall, we have zero regrets about going with the Waterfront Beach Resort and are so thankful for their part in making our memory one to remember for the rest of our lives!
