Everyone should book their wedding here. My husband and I knew we always wanted to have our wedding reception here because the hotel is beautiful and the food is amazing. When we finally did get engaged we called and met with Wendy, this venues hidden gem. Wendy is amazing. From the planning, to the wedding details, and her vendor suggestion for pipe and drape, we had the wedding of our dreams. It actually exceeded our dreams!
One of the amazing bonuses of having your wedding here, is that you are the only bride on the day of your wedding. You have the whole ballroom and pretty much the hotel itself to be the only bride in the building. That's not too common to have. Another bonus is having Lindsey, the sales manager, manage all of our booked guest rooms and always sending me an updated list of our booked hotel guests. What other hotel/wedding venue has 2 of their top ladies helping the bride with this level of service. None. The Hilton at Carillon is unmatched by any other venue.
The night before our wedding, Wendy had opened the ballroom so our vendors could start setting up and prepping for the next day. The morning of our wedding, Wendy had even called and texted me through out the morning just to check up on me. She was even in the lobby sending me off in the limo to the church and she was waiting in the lobby with drinks upon our return as Mr. and Mrs.
We had set up a private cocktail hour for the bridal party during the regular cocktail hour. This was the best idea. We were able to sit, relax, and eat before the reception began. Wendy even personally got my husband and I our drinks during cocktail hour! Service unmatched! The food was amazing. Not regular "wedding fare" it was like gourmet food. Our plates were full of delicious, hot, fresh food. Very important when serving over 140 guests. The rest of the reception went off without a hitch and the brunch after was amazing. Thank you Wendy and staff for helping us with our Disney princess wedding!

The best part of planning my wedding was Wendy Baratta from the Hilton Carillon Park and the staff at the hotel. Not only was she so easy to work with, so helpful, and just an all around great person she made my day truly the best day of my life! The hotel in itself is stunning from beautiful decor, amazing fountains, gardens, trees, and a bridge over the water was just breath-taking. The food was amazing every time. We had a tasting, rehearsal, cocktail hour, and reception at the Hilton and every bite was fantastic.

I can't think of enough great things to describe how truly happy I was with our decision to have our wedding at the Hilton Lake Carrillon. Wendy, and everyone at the hotel are so kind and helpful and will leave me with the most amazing memories from my wedding day that I will never forget.

Where do I begin with Hilton Carillon :-D!! What speaks volumes about this place is that the minute you walk through the front door you feel like you in another world. From the decor on the inside to the beautiful scenery outside, Hilton Carillon is unique in the fact that they offer the perfect atmosphere inside and out.

When you hear Hilton Carillon you cannot fail to hear about Wendy Baratta. She is a fantastic catering sales manager who also coordinates weddings at the hotel. She was extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and honestly helped sealed the deal when we choose them as our venue/caterer. Her personality and attention to detail really made the difference between other venues.

What also made me fall in love with Hilton Carillon was the food! The day of our wedding I honestly remember the food the most! Everyone loved it and I still hear great things about the food. Even the tasting was just as good as the wedding day. There was never a moment where I had doubts in my decision.

From decorations, to day of coordination, food, location, hotel accommodations, and friendliness of the staff you cannot choose a better location in St. Petersburg.

I found the Hilton Carillon Park through my hairdresser that got married there last year, and I am so happy that I did. The hotel is beautiful! There are so many neat places to take pictures... the fountains (especially the front fountain/walkway at night), around the lake, and in the bar. It's tucked away and quiet because most of their business is during the week for corporate travellers and meetings. Even though there was another wedding there earlier in the day, I felt like the whole day was about me. Some of the other hotels in the area have 6 weddings in one day, many going on at the same time, but it was nothing like that at the Hilton Carillon Park. The outside patio where we had the ceremony was beautiful as well.

Wendy Baratta, the coordinator, was amazing! I sent her so many e-mails, many asking her things I knew I already had in the past ("bride brain"), and she was so quick to respond back. She kept me on track throughout the planning process and was able to recommend some vendors for me. She also has a good reputation with the Tampa area wedding vendors. Many that I talked to knew who she was when I mentioned the Hilton Carillon Park and had great things to say about her. Wendy is also the day of coordinator, which was a huge help! I know I was a bit anal about how my place cards table, guest book table, etc were set up, but everything was perfect! She was there during the entire wedding and reception which also gave me peace of mind, though everything went off without a hitch!

The food was great at the wedding. Many of our guests told me that after the wedding, which was a surprise since typically banquet food isn't anything to rave about. And the portions were huge! Although we were not present during the cocktail hour, I heard great things about the food displays and passed hors d'oeuvres. We also had a good-bye breakfast at the hotel restaurant the following morning and the breakfast buffet was excellent!

We had our ceremony and reception here on April, 15 2012. I was so impressed with all of the staff here. Everyone we encountered here was curteous, helpful and professional. The event coordinator here, Wendy Baratta, was wonderful! She was very helpful and easy to work with. She was always pleasant and got back to me right away and was great at keeping in touch. The food was fantastic! My guests really enjoyed themselves as did my husband and I.

The nature preserve area makes a wonderful spot for some great photos too. Our day could not have gone smoother and I'm so glad that we chose this Hilton, it's definitely worth checking out and I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT.

Wendy thank you for all your help... =)

I held my 11/5/11 wedding at the Hilton Carillon Park. It was amazing. My suite was amazing and had the most beautiful view of the lake. I truly cannot explain how great Wendy is. She helped me for an entire year, planning my wedding. She always had the best advice and got back to me quickly when I had a question. She personally knew all of my vendors and they were all amazing as well. Wendy always figured out a way for me to get what I want without going over budget. Even with my "tough" mother, Wendy always made sure it was what I wanted and was there until the end. I will truly miss not talking to her several times a week but I highly highly reccommend the Hilton for your ceremony and reception. Everyone is great and the hotel is practically brand new. I loved every minute of it.

Wendy at the Hilton was FANTASTIC for our wedding! I can say with absolute certainty that our day would not have been half as good without her and the rest of the staff. They were incredibly responsive and always took care of anything we asked, no matter how big or small. We ended up with a fantastic deal on food/drink, and they made the room look beautiful and elegant for the wedding. The portions were huge, and we got tons of compliments on how tasty the food was. The staff helped design a menu especially for us to meet all of our needs, and it was extremely well done. We went to the Hilton on numerous occasions to look it over, do a tasting, drop off decorations, etc. and every single time I left even more excited about the wedding! I could not recommend anything more highly than I do this venue.

Wendy Baratta, catering manager, was so helpful in finding vendors for us and always making herself available to all our calls and questions. Her staff provided our wedding with exceptional service and friendly atmosphere. The ballroom had every detail we selected and our dinner was delicious. I recommend the Hilton Carillon Park to all future brides and grooms.
