    We had our wedding party/reception at the Hill Center in April 2018 and can't say enough good things about it. Lisa is so easy to work with. Our guests couldn't stop raving about how neat the space is, especially the artwork on the walls. We rented the entire second level for about 120 guests and it was a perfect size. The Hill Center staff that helped out at our event were superb. We can't say enough good things about this space and highly recommend it.

    My wife and I choose the Hill Center over a few hotels downtown because it was different and right on the hill. They were super responsive and willing to work with us. They had a number of vendors they recommended that we used and loved. My only regret is that the party didn't last longer.

    We had a wonderful experience working with the Hill Center for our wedding. We wanted to get married somewhere local (we live on the Hill), and were drawn to the history of the Hill Center, the beauty of the gardens, the friendliness of the staff, and the ability to rent both indoor and outdoor space. We ended up renting the 2nd floor for the reception, the East Garden for the ceremony, and the West Plaza for food trucks. Divinity, Lisa, and all of the staff were extremely accommodating with all of our requests. They were responsive and supportive and there were no hidden charges - which we know can happen at other venues. This was one of the best (and easiest) decisions in our wedding planning process!
