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.Sent on 03/10/2021

Amazing, beautiful wedding
With beach views from our location (both ceremony and reception), to the delicious food we created with their staff, to the helpful and resourceful staff (Angie and Spencer), our wedding was the most beautiful, easiest, memorable wedding ever!!!Sent on 11/30/2020

My perfect wedding
The Waterfront Hotel was supportive, accommodating, and friendly throughout our entire wedding planning process. Angie was our go-to for everything wedding related and always had the answers. I was a relatively ignorant bride when it came to specific details or event planning, but Angie helped every step of the way answering every single question I had. I felt that our Waterfront team understood me, my husband, and our style. They were able to make decisions that were exactly in line with my vision without me having to articulate specifics. Planning a wedding during COVID created its own unique challenges, but our team at the Waterfront helped alleviate a lot of that stress with their unending flexibility. I would recommend this place every single time and cannot wait to spend each anniversary here in the future!Sent on 04/28/2021

Vanessa is a true Waterfront Veteran, and hails from Lancaster, CA. When she isn't helping her clients plan their dream weddings, Vanessa loved dining out with her husband and playing with her sweet pup Pixie.
Angie is from Yucaipa, CA and considers herself to be a world traveler. When she's not planning gorgeous weddings, you can find her seeking a new adventure or running on the beach.
Beautiful Venue and great service. I have a wedding booked for April. I am looking forward to spending the day among great professionals. And, a beautiful Bride and Groom.
There aren't enough words to describe how amazing the staff at the Hilton Waterfront is. Always carrying themselves with the utmost professionalism, Emily, Kathy and Vanessa not only handle weddings and events with ease, but with both a caring and personable demeanor. Our team loves working events at this beautiful hotel, and their staff is a huge reason for it. You can absolutely expect timely responses, attention to even the tiniest of details and a commitment to making your event flow perfectly when working with Emily, Kathy and Vanessa.
The Waterfront Hilton is such a fantastic venue! Kathy, Vanessa, and Emily in the Catering Department, along with the Bell Desk staff, and Banquet staff are an absolute pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend the Waterfront Hilton to those newly engaged couples looking for a beautiful beach wedding venue.
