Amazing Ocean-side Wedding Venue
When the Groom and I were touring venues, we walked into the Grand Ocean Terrace at the Westin HHI and were completely blown away! The room is beautiful, spacious, and has amazing views of the ocean – it is one of a kind. Once we decided that it was the place we wanted to have our reception, we worked with Kristen Kilbane and Hannah Bozard to finalize our initial contract and details. Two months later… COVID-19 happened. Throughout the entire summer and fall of 2020, Kristen and the rest of the Westin team were amazing, continuing to stay in contact with us, and finally making several COVID-related adjustments in the six months leading up the to wedding. They allowed us to remove the brunch we had initially scheduled as part of our initial contract, to reduce the number of gathering events we were hosting. As the last four weeks arrived, it was clear that with reduced guests due to COVID-19, we were going to be well below our contracted food and beverage minimum. Again, the Westin team worked with us to adjust the minimum to fit our numbers. We had already signed a contract, so the Westin definitely didn’t have to work with us – but they are amazing and care about their couples, and made the whole process easy and stress free! I was never nervous working with Kristen. Kristen also was in constant contact with me the final week before the wedding as we made other final tweaks to numbers and food, she is amazing! She was always on top of everything! She made sure the day ran completely smoothly on the Westin’s end.Sent on 01/21/2021
The Chef also deserves a note – the food here is amazing! Definitely not your standard chicken or beef meal that you usually get at weddings. Everything tasted so good, we had a hard time deciding at our tasting what our final meal choices would be! All of the guests commented how good the food was; the Groom and I made time to sit down and enjoy our meals too! The Chef was also incredibly accommodating to vegans and other food allergies, those guests still raved about their meals!
The Westin also made sure to make all possible and necessary precautions in regards to COVID-19; we and our guests never felt unsafe or uncomfortable! All of our guests commented on how beautiful and nice the resort is. Overall, the Westin went above and beyond all of my expectations, upgrading our rooms, leaving sweet notes and treats for the Groom and I in our room, and just generally making us feel so incredibly special on this weekend. I can’t recommend the Westin HHI for weddings enough!!!

My husband and I had our original April wedding in the FL Keys canceled due to COVID, and due to various circumstances, could not re-plan it with the same venue. Therefore I was scrambling to find another venue to start planning a new wedding from scratch when I came across beautiful photos of the Grand Ocean Terrace at the Westin. It was absolutely breath-taking, and I knew I had to see it in person. After seeing this gorgeous venue and talking with the helpful Westin staff, we booked for December 2020, and we are SO grateful that we did! We worked with Heather, and she was fantastic! She was super responsive and flexible with all of our needs. They handled our wedding flawlessly, even in the midst of COVID, which is not easy to do! Heather and her team worked hard to make our wedding absolutely gorgeous and smooth from start to finish, and they succeeded! They are 100% professionals at what they do, and they made the process so much less stressful than it could've been. I could not recommend them more strongly. Our guests raved about the food, the gorgeous room, and the venue in general! They even went so far as to leave us champagne and snacks in our room as well! We had several last minute drop-outs to our bridal party and guest list, and Heather was completely understanding and helpful every step of the way. Huge shoutout to Heather and her staff, thank you SO much for all your hard work!Sent on 12/28/2020

Perfect Wedding Venue
We had the perfect wedding day at the Westin! Although in the midst of covid, the staff at the Westin was more than willing to work with us on rescheduling and rearranging plans. Through it all, the staff was extremely kind, understanding and very very helpful. We highly recommend anyone looking for the perfect venue to consider the Westin Hilton Head!Sent on 12/21/2020
The Westin Hilton Head Island Resort & Spa Price Rates
I have had the pleasure of planning and executing many weddings over the years at this resort for my clients, and have also hosted several personal celebrations with my family at the Westin Resort and Spa on Hilton Head Island. The staff, level of superior service, talented culinary team, and overall friendliness of the staff make this venue a fabulous choice for a couple looking for a destination celebration. I would highly encourage any couple looking for a fantastic wedding location to consider the Westin during their search. They will not be disappointed!
