They have been wonderful in the planning of our wedding! I can't wait to get married there!!
We were swept away by the appearance of Zukas on our wedding day! Alyson, the coordinator, set up all of our centerpieces and decor for us perfectly and was a joy to work with. The grounds are gorgeous and meticulously manicured, the staff is incredibly friendly, and the atmosphere is delightful. Our guests raved about the gorgeous indoor reception space after our wedding. The staff boxed up all of the decor after the reception and even provided breakfast for us in the bridal suite for the next morning. We honestly could not have been happier.
I cannot say enough about Zukas Hilltop Barn and about Alyson Russo, the Zukas events coordinator! My husband & I visited many venues and chose Zukas not only for its obvious charm and beauty but because Alyson was so friendly and so willing to work with us and create our dream wedding reception. She was so great from beginning to end! She is great about responding to my emails right away and answering all types of questions lol!
The day before my wedding I brought all of my stuff for the reception to Zukas that I had planned, bought, and made (2 SUV full)! Alyson let me explain everything I wanted and let me tell her about everything and were I wanted it to be placed. The next day when i entered into Zukas everything was amazing and perfect and it looked exactly like I wanted it to! Alyson didn't miss a beat!
As far as the wedding day went my different vendors came and went setting up and doing whatever they needed to do and they all love going to Zukas they said because the staff is always so friendly to work with!
My wedding reception went AMAZING! the food was timely, warm, and fantastic! Everyone and I mean everyone loved there food! We served pork tenderloin and stuffed haddock. Both were so delicious! Everyone was amazed with the food at cocktail hour and at dinner. The serves by the staff was also amazing. Every server was fast and polite. All the staff was really friendly and seemed like they really cared and helped any guest with whatever they needed.
By the end of the night anything I or my family needed to take home was clean, washed if needed, and packed up ready to go!
Zukas did an amazing job making my wedding reception perfect! my husband and I couldn't have asked for anything more! The venue is breath taking! I can not say enough great things about Zukas! Everyone just LOVED it!!
Zukas Hilltop Barn was the absolute best wedding decision we made! Right from the start Alyson was welcoming & professional-we knew our wedding was in good hands. She responded quickly to every email & worked with our vendors to create a seamless event. Everyone tells you that some things go wrong with every wedding, but there is not one thing I can think of that didn't go perfectly!
We had a 1-hr rehearsal the night before & dropped our decorations off at that time as well. The next day Alyson had everything set up beautifully-better than we imagined. The moment we drove onsite I felt calm & happy-it was definitely a plus having the ceremony and reception in the same place, knowing there would be no rushing to get anywhere once we arrived! We got ready in the bridal suite & the grounds provided a great backdrop for pre-ceremony photos. We were lucky enough to have a sunny, warm September eve & the ceremony site was bathed in summer light with the hills in the background. Alyson kept everything running on time-we didn't have a worry in the world! She even brought out cheese & crackers while we were having our photos done & saved us a plate of our passed appetizers to eat at dinner so we wouldn't miss out on them. We got so many compliments on the food! The tent was gorgeous with the white lights & uplighting. The non-dancers loved the fire outside! At the end the staff gathered up our belongings onto one table, which really made cleaning up quick & easy. These thoughtful details really made all the difference.
We stayed in the bridal suite overnight-it was amazing to just walk across the parking lot after a night of dancing! The next morning we were treated to a breakfast tray, including pieces of our cake (which was the best surprise since it was the flavor that I had missed out on at the reception!).
Thank you so much Alyson & everyone at Zukas for a night we will never forget.
Amazing Alyson is a saint and made our day perfect she was so incredibly helpful and knows exactly what to do and when to do it I highly recommend this venue!!
My wife and I are still recovering from all of the fun we had at our wedding at Zukas Hilltop Barn last weekend! Not only did we think that Zukas was without a doubt the most perfect (and picturesque!) venue for our wedding, the staff from start to finish was truly what made our wedding amazing. Our venue coordinator, Alyson Russo, answered every question without delay (of which there were far more than I care to admit!), kept in contact with us from our very first meeting, and I know that she and her staff are a large part of the reason my new wife and I were able to stay stress-free (well, within reason :) ) during our planning process. We even had a moment to steal away from everyone for some pictures by the fire pit.
The venue looked absolutely beautiful and we cannot thank Zukas enough for the seemingly effortless set up and break down of our event. The Bridal Suite was gorgeous and so accommodating and I cannot gush enough about the property grounds and the reception space. I also wanted to highlight one of their servers - I have been kicking myself for not getting her name. At every point of the night that I ran into her (which was surprisingly often!), she went out of her way to make sure that we had everything we needed and that most importantly, ensuring that we were taking time to truly enjoy our wedding. She always met me with a smile and seemed just as excited as we were to be there. It is gestures like hers that I know I will still remember 50 years from now.
The food from cocktail hour to dinner service to cake was out of this world! All in all, last weekend was hands down the best night of both our lives. Alyson and her team helped us to create a wedding that makes me happy-cry when I think of it, and one that I know none of our guests will soon forget. Zukas - the property, the venue, the staff, and most especially Alyson, are top notch! We will be recommending Zukas Hilltop Barn for years and years to come.
Zukas is such a beautiful place to get married! I had the ceremony and reception there and everything was amazing. My bridesmaids and I had our hair and make up done at Zukas spa. It was very relaxing to be able to get it done right there! Alyson was so helpful from start to finish.
Five stars are not nearly enough to describe how amazing Zukas Hilltop Barn and its entire staff, especially Alyson, are! We had the most incredible experience working with Alyson from day one and wouldn't have traded it for anything. The folks at Zukas know exactly what to do to make your wedding day go off without a hitch. The craziest part of how great the entire staff is, is that you never even see them! They are in and out of the reception tent, waiting in the wings to fix anything that is out of place and make sure everything stays top notch. Our guests cannot stop raving about the view at Zukas, nor the food. Talk about delicious! If I had all of the money in the world to plan my wedding, I would still go back and choose Zukas every single time. Brides, book your wedding at Zukas Hilltop Barn. You will NOT regret it.
We held both our ceremony and reception at Zukas Hilltop Barn and the day could not have been more perfect. The entire wedding went off without a hitch due mostly in part to Alyson's efforts and flawless coordination of the day with our wonderful vendors. We booked our wedding at Zukas about 14 months in advance and were lucky enough to get one of Zukas' last 2 available dates for the summer of 2015. As the wedding got closer and closer, my emails to Alyson with questions and concerns increased, and she always replied the same day. My bridesmaids and I got our hair and makeup done on site at the Spa, which couldn't have worked out better. The hair stylists and make-up artists were all fantastic, and it was just so convenient to be on site, and then just to be able to move next door to the Suite to get dressed and for finishing touches. Everything at Zukas was just so beautiful and the tent looked incredible. The grounds are so lovely and provide so many options for photos. We have received endless comments from our guests on the beauty of the venue and the delicious food. It was an incredible day and I can't imagine having had my wedding anywhere else!
Zukas Hilltop Barn made every aspect of my wedding day a dream come true! Alyson & staff were above and beyond with professionalism and made this whole process as stress free as possible. All of their preferred vendors that we hired were exceptional as well! Awesome food, amazing scenery, adorable bridal suite and the list goes on. Thank you again for such an exceptional day 7.24.15 TheBradways
It was wonderful!!! Everyone was helpful and professional!!! The grounds were beautiful and I couldn't have asked for a more memorable day!!!!
We couldn't be happier with Zukas! Alyson is very responsive, always responding to emails the same day answering any questions and being extremely helpful. Everything we imagined for the day of our wedding came out exactly on point. The service was great, the food was delicious - even better than we had remembered at the tasting. We have received a sea of compliments on the beauty of the venue, overall relaxed feeling and fun atmosphere everyone experienced here. They do not try to sneak in any extra fees or charge you for unnecessary things like other venues we looked at do - they are real people who will make your day so special! Highly recommend to anyone!! Advice though: book early! We booked almost a year and half ahead and there were only about 3 dates left for the entire summer.
We booked Zukas Hilltop Barn for our wedding reception without hesitation! As soon as we met with Alyson and saw the grounds we knew this would be the perfect place for our wedding! Anytime we had a question or concern, Alyson would set our minds at ease! Even a late night email was answered right away by Alyson, she was fabulous! We were so pleased with the owners of Zukas who also went above and beyond to help us plan our details of our wedding reception! Lynn was able to get in all the food, bottled water and even the after dinner Limocello drink we requested! We were also able to bring in all of the Italian cookies, pastries, candy buffet, and a Barista for our Venetian hour after dinner! Our guests are still talking about our wedding reception! Everyone loved the place, the setting and the food! We are so pleased with everyone from Zukas! Thank you again for a beautiful, memorable day! Maybe we can even have an anniversary party there one day in the future! Thanks again! Jessica and Angelo Bifano, Jr.
From our first visit to Zukas through our wedding day, they did everything right. Responses to any question, any day and any time, came quickly and efficiently. We felt completely confident in their ability to run our day smoothly, and they did not disappoint. The food was delicious, the cake was gorgeous, the staff was professional and friendly, and the grounds are stunning. I really can't say enough about this venue. I can only hope that we get to attend a wedding there in the future so we can enjoy it all again!
Alyson and the Zukas Hilltop Barn staff helped my wedding vision become my reality! Alyson was so great at answering every question that we had, and worked with us the whole year and a half before our wedding. She also referred us to Greg Bedard for a DJ, which was one of the best decisions we made! On the day of the wedding, Alyson was also so amazing with our young nephews who insisted on helping her set the tables and she even went the extra mile when one of the littlest ones was having a meltdown! The bridal suite was perfect to get ready in with my bridesmaids and my husband and I were given a breakfast basket to eat the next morning-- delicious! The grounds were so beautiful and all of our guests loved how big it was with the gazebo, fire pit, etc to go out to. We chose a chicken dish and baked haddock, which is a little unconventional, but everyone raved about the food--I'm still hearing how good the food was weeks later (the cake too)! I would chose Zukas over and over again!
I recently had my wedding at Zukas in May. It was a beautiful venue, food and drink were great, especially the wedding cake! Alyson made planning so easy, and the girls got their hair done on site. The day could not have been any less stressful and it couldn't have been more amazing. I can't imagine every wanting to have a wedding anywhere else. Absolutely perfect location.
