Darby was wonderful! She and her staff did a wonderful job. She saw my vision and gave me exactly what I wanted. Beautiful arrangements, romantic candlelight, and just the right amount of "bling" with the hanging jewels. I Highly recommend her!
I used the in-house audio visual company for the pin spot on my cake and some uplighting in the ballroom. Kevin was quick to respond, he took my budget into consideration and worked with me.
I had my wedding ceremony and reception at the Hilton Bella Harbor April 2010 and it was absolutely wonderful! My ceremony was on the patio overlooking the lake at sunset, the pictures that were taken-MAGICAL.
Our cocktail hour and dinner reception followed inside and my guests could not stop talking about how beautiful the hotel was,how attentive the front desk staff, restaurant staff, the housekeeping staff and in genera,l everyone that they came into contact was.
The dinner portion of our reception was perfect down to the last piece of cake that was cut and served to my guests. My mother and I did not have a thing to worry about. Between the banquet staff, my wedding planner and Dorienne, we were able to have the time of our life. The food was soo good! We did the displays and action stations, my favorite- the potato martini! :-)
I also worked with Dorienne, she was a pleasure to work with. My mother LOVED her and everytime we met with her, my mom gave her a big hug because she was made the process so easy. She never sent an unprofessional email or failed to return a call. And she was never rude in any way what so ever. In fact, I have had several friends call and inquire about weddings there and some have talked to Dorienne and they all say after meeting and talking to her she is great. I have one friend that booked her wedding there coming up next year and she feels the same way. They give you so much information to help you with the hotel part of the planning process that I didn't even hire a wedding coordinator until a month before my wedding. My wedding planner even loved working with her.
I hope that you are able to look back and see the positive, fun part of your wedding day, I know there has to be times you think about that make you smile. I know everyone sees things differently so I felt that it would be wrong for me not to comment on my experience. It was wonderful and I would not change a thing.
