Last summer, we started planning my daughter’s wedding for 200 guests on the tightest of budgets. After looking at dozens of venues in NY and Philadelphia, we happened upon the Double Tree by Hilton and their wedding coordinator, Clem Pascarella. From the very first encounter with Clem my daughter felt as though he was a combination of father-of-bride and wedding planner extraordinaire. He patiently sat listened, took notes, and helped us put together a dream ceremony and reception that was customized for Twana and Wesner’s special day. We eventually decided on an 11:30 a.m. ceremony on Easter Sunday followed by a brunch menu. The setting and ambiance were warm and inviting, and were only exceeded by the outstanding service. From the onset, Clem P. went beyond the call of duty to ensure that the day would be special. The brunch menu was presented in two sessions, with the breakfast and cold items served at as a cocktail hour, while the hot and lunch items were served during the reception. The food was superbly delicious and abundant. Many of our guests took advantage of the affordable package and booked rooms at the hotel for the night, some for the entire weekend. The staff was more than flexible in honoring our courtesy block of rooms, adding rooms, and extending time for wedding guests at no additional cost. Friends and family members are still talking about the accommodations, friendly staff, and the delectably, mouthwatering chocolate cookies you get at check-in. The entire event had a classy, yet personal feel. Clem is truly loves brides and is the Double Tree’s greatest asset. He could not have been more accommodating if he was planning this event for a family member. He really helped us to pull off an affordably elegant affair which far exceeded our expectations. Many of our guests have indicated that they will be using the services of the Double Tree in the future. Oh! Let’s not forget, it is conveniently located across from the King of Prussia Mall and the complimentary hotel shuttle will transport you there and back. I would not hesitate to recommend Clem and the Double Tree to any bride on any budget. Please mention Twana and Wesner’s wedding for the customized “brunch special.”

My husband and I got married in Key West this past Labor Day Weekend which was a private wedding in which we were the only two present. After my family and I talked about having a party for our family and friends, I knew right away that the DoubleTree by Hilton-Valley Forge was the right choice for me. A lifelong King of Prussia native, I love the ambiance of the hotel and watched it go though many changes over the years. My choice was only made firmer once I met Clem Pascarella, who is the Senior Catering Sales Manager, and one of the nicest people I have ever met. Seriously. Within minutes of meeting him I felt as though he was a part of my family in that he was so patient, understanding and attentive to our needs, and was always responsive to any emails/questions I would have the same day. We chose a tropical/Key West theme for our wedding, and the overall tribute was to Jimmy Buffett. Clem was so wonderful that he even offered to dress up in a Shark costume during the beginning of the party to everyone's delight when I complained to him via phone that I couldn't find anyone to do so for me! I can't say enough wonderful things about how Clem helped create the night of our dreams. Our party was only 6 days ago, and I am still answering phone calls from our guests saying that it was the most wonderful wedding party they have attended. Do yourself a favor and stop thinking and just book the DoubleTree by Hilton-Valley Forge for your wedding venue. I can assure you it will be the best decision you will make for you and your guests and you will remember your special night forever. I am SO HAPPY we did!!

I thought that planning a wedding in the short amount of time that I had, would have been really tough but the staff at the DoubleTree - Valley Forge, were truly amazing! Clem is such a great catering manager and thanks to him, our wedding was exactly what we wanted and more. This is definitely the right place to go if you are on a tight budget and still want a beautiful ceremony. We were able to customize things the way we wanted to and nothing was impossible. The food was great and the wait staff were very attentive. The venues for both the ceremony and reception had a great ambience. Everyone had a great time.

When we booked our wedding here I didn't have any doubts. We booked with Kevin who was amazing! He since has left (he was truly missed). While everything went awesome and everyone had a great time Linda (Kevin's replacement), didn't seem to guide us on the day as I would have liked. That being said the rest of the staff were great, very professional and helpful. The food was better than we could have hoped for. We loved the ability to have everything in one place... from getting ready in the morning, ceremony, cocktails, reception, after party (Three01), and sleep (this all made the day very relaxing). I would definitely recommend this to any bride/groom who is looking for a great place to throw a fun reception.
