We wanted a venue that could hold 300-400 guests count outdoors, considering COVID, but had backup options in case of rain.
I picked Hilton Clearwater Beach because it was a great location for our out-of-town guests to enjoy a mini-vacation along with attending my wedding. I always loved the idea of an Indian wedding on the beach; it's so different, and being a native Floridian it was perfect for me.
The Hilton Clearwater Beach also has a history of hosting many Indian weddings, so I knew they were familiar with the traditions, large guest count, and food expectations.
Since I'm from California and Michelle's from Ohio, we always wanted to have a destination wedding in a beautiful city. We wanted to get married on the beach with an outdoor reception. We wanted our guests to have the convenience of everything in one place, so they could relax and not worry about finding transportation and additional travel.
The Hilton Clearwater Beach offered all of our events; our rehearsal dinner, wedding, and brunch the day after our wedding at the hotel. We chose the Hilton because of the gorgeous Sandpiper Terrace which opens up to the beach, and our ceremony and cocktail hour were just steps away. We wanted our out-of-town guests to have a vacation of their own, so it was important to us that everything be in close vicinity with no additional travel. The service was top-notch, and everyone was so nice and accommodating. Our guests were very complimentary of the service they received, and the fun attitudes of the employees.
All of the food at our wedding was delicious from the appetizers to the meal. The Hilton provided a Mexican station with pork and chicken tacos, an Italian station with creamy pesto and bolognese pasta, and a carving station serving sliced prime rib. We were so happy with the food, and so many guests raved about how delicious it was. They kept going back for seconds and thirds!
Open/airy views, beachfront, and updated/modern. Everything the Hilton Clearwater Beach is.
After visiting two hotels in Clearwater and two in St. Pete, we chose the Hilton for the Sandpiper Deck. It was everything we needed to make our wedding dreams come true. We needed everything to be outside: ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. They were the most expensive venue we looked at, but we could not get over the views. It was everything we wanted!
Candice Slater at the Hilton was another reason we loved the hotel. She is amazing; so prompt and thoughtful with everything she does. We were planning during COVID, and she answered everything and made us feel so confident in keeping our wedding date the same and not postponing.
We looked for a one-stop shop. A place where we have to outsource as little as possible to make the day of stress-free!
The Hilton Clearwater Beach offered a spa, day-of hair, and makeup, catering, spaces for rehearsal dinner, and the list can go on! The venue spaces couldn't have been more perfect for what we wanted. The element that was most important was the ability to be on the beach, but not require guests to step in the sand. The Flamingo and Sandpiper Decks at the Hilton offered the atmosphere of the beach but gave the guests the option to be in the sand if they wanted to at the time of the reception.
Our choice of location was the main way we incorporated our personalities. We love nothing more than to sit on the beach and have a cocktail and The Hilton provides that atmosphere! We have spent many afternoons at Tommy's Tiki right on the beach, which is why we love the event space outside.
The coordinator, Candice, was great and so helpful throughout the process. We also had a crazy storm that unexpectedly blew through right after the ceremony. All of the staff were super accommodating and organized throughout the whole event.
White space! I wanted to make sure the venue gave me the opportunity to bring my vision to life. It was also important for the cocktail hour and the reception area to be covered to plan for any imperfect weather.
We chose The Hilton Clearwater Beach because of the white space, the location, and how wonderful their staff was while we were searching for our venue! I looked at the white space like a canvas and painted our vision of the perfect beach wedding. They were extremely accommodating and responsive. I have zero complaints about the venue or their staff, which is a dream come true for a bride who planned two weddings in 1.5 years.
