  • Emily Bowers was my husband and I Wedding Specialist and was simply FABULOUS!!!! Initially, we were leaning towards an uptown venue but happened to find out about Hilton Charlotte University/Lakeview Patio venue. Our SPECIAL day was everything and MORE. Emily was always available and very professional. She has a great sense of humor and what I like most is she was never pushy. If you're looking for a beautiful venue, great food, nice luxury hotel accomodations then the Hilton is your venue. I promise you will be glad that you made the choice. Emily, thanks again for providing such EXCEPTIONAL SERVICE:):):):) #toshaanddoug92714

  • We changed our wedding venue to the Hilton, right on the water, just 3 days before the wedding. Their wedding planner worked with us extensively to ensure this venue could work for us. They were great hosts for our wedding. If you haven't been there you should just go and look, the outdoor wedding venue is beautiful. In addition to that their wooden structure on the deck is built to handle just about anything you can imagine, including lanterns, curtains or ribbons. They were also accommodating with chairs and a table for us to use. They made the experience painless and I believe because of their efforts our wedding was significantly better than it would have been at our previous venue.

    We are so glad we were able to accommodate you all for your special day! It was our pleasure having you all with us. Thank you for the kind words :) --Emily Bowers

  • Ms. Emily Bowers was my wedding coordinator, or shall I say angel. She was always willing to answer the thousands of questions I had and she worked well with all of my outside vendors, to ensure my day went of without a hitch. Even though I am well aware that she does 100's of wedding a year, she made sure that when it was our turn it was all about us. Not to mention the wonderful staff they were very courteous, one ex. of this was: one of the wait staff noticed that I was to nervous to eat my food so he wrapped it up for me. The Hilton made our day exactly what it was supposed to be....unforgettable.

    Decora, it goes without saying that you were a joy to work with. Your sweet spirit and positive attitude were always so great to be around! I am so thrilled for you both and know you will have a long lasting, love filled marriage! Keep in touch! --Emily Bowers

  • We had a renewal reception at the Hilton. Emily Bowers was the best. She handled everything. The room was great, the food was excellent and the service was awesome. We are planning another party in Jan 16. Emily took care of us again. You could ask for a better wedding planner, her attention to detail was excellent.

  • My name is Courtney Rios my wedding was September 6th 2014. It wasn't just the greatest day of my life because I married my best friend but because Emily Bowers and her staff were absolutely amazing. Emily worked hard to make sure everything that I wanted was just perfect. Even though she had many brides to tend to she made me feel like I was the only one. Emily and her staff are top notch, my ceremony was on the deck lake front it was breath taking and my reception was the prefect fit for me and my guests, so romantic.

    Wow, Courtney! Thank you SO much for the amazing words. We really try to go above and beyond for each and every one of you, so I'm thrilled you had the experience that you did. Thank you for spending your special day with the Hilton! It was our pleasure having you with us! --Emily Bowers

  • We had the pleasure of working with Rayna as our wedding specialist at the Hilton. Everyone there was very friendly and professional. Rayna met with us several times to get every detail figured out. I don't know what we would have done without her! The food for the reception and rehearsal dinner was delicious! The event space was perfect and the water out back made for some beautiful pictures. I would definitely recommend the Hilton Charlotte University Place to a friend.

    Thank you so much! We are so glad you decided to have your wedding with us! I'm so glad I was able to assist and meet all of your expectations! Best wishes to you both! --Rayna Stroud

  • The Hilton hosted my hotel accommodations and reception for my wedding. My contact, Emily, made my entire process smooth and enjoyable. Everyone was professional and courteous at every encounter. I told Emily my vision and she truly helped me to make it a reality. Once I told her my vendors she coordinated the set up time and showing them where everything was supposed to go. The day of my wedding was extremely stress free for me and I know I owe that to Emily. FYI the food was absolutely delicious! I highly recommend the Hilton for any occasion.

    Portia, to have a wedding as large as you all did, it always amazed me that you never once seem to stress or panic! You and Keith are such a perfect match - so easy going, agreeable, sweet and laid back. It was a pleasure working with both of you! THANK YOU again for spending your day with us! --Emily Bowers

  • Hilton provided my reception room, which was spacious and beautiful. Lakeview was our room, it provided a view of the lake and had an outdoor space with a waterfall, great for pictures. They catered the food and drinks. Our guests were completely satisfied with the food. Which I still hear about to this day! Emily was my wedding specialist. She was a pleasure to work with, and made my vision come to fruition.

    Monise, you know I always loved visits from you (and your mom, too!) You always put a smile on my face! I am so glad you all chose the Hilton to celebrate your special day. We are so thrilled you were pleased with the food and the ballroom space! Thank you again! --Emily Bowers

  • I had my wedding here and it was perfect. All the staff at the Hilton were so pleasant and wonderful to work with and to all my guests. Our wedding specialist was Rayna, after the person we initially met with and signed the contract with had left. The change in our contacts made us nervous, so we immediately scheduled a meeting to discuss everything with Rayna. She made us feel much better and took care of all our needs and even special requests. She was so responsive by mail or phone and always willing to go the extra mike to help with something. Overall, my family and I were so happy our wedding was at the Hilton University Place. The ceremony on the dock and reception in the ballroom were both so beautiful and everyone had a blast. I also kept hearing how delicious the food was all night. It was also the perfect venue for out of town guests because there is so much to do within walking distance. We got so much positive feedback from the guests staying there and even myself ... Read more
