This venue and all of the vendors that they recommend in their wedding packages are absolutely incredible. This venue is up on a hill that overlooks the entire valley. The view is absolutely breathtaking. The patio/reception area has a large covered patio with beautiful lighting. The restaurant has a fully stocked bar and very rustic decor. A perfect venue to have a wedding.
Stacey was extremely organized and professional. She listened to every single detail of my dream wedding and made it all come true. Every little detail was hand picked... I met with her to decide on colors, linens, chargers, menus, types of flowers, and candle lighting. The way Stacey and her team put everything together was exquisite. If I had any questions before and after my wedding she was literally a phone call or text away. She put together the timeline and sent confirmation emails to all of my vendors. She even helped my with the very difficult bustle on my dress.
My fiancé did a food tasting prior to our wedding which was done Moore Culinary Services the Chef was so nice and his culinary skills are amazing! We went with the Ponderosa Barbecue which was smoked hot links, pulled pork, homemade macaroni and cheese, potato salad, caesar salad, savory green beans, and assorted rolls. It was tasted incredible and the presentation was beautiful.
KB D.J. was another vendor that made this day just amazing!!! Keith sent me a very detailed list for me to fill out so that I could choose virtually every single song for the day of my wedding. It included. the music before, during, and after the ceremony, as well as every bit of the reception. It was so much fun! Everyone was entertained and the dancing continued until it was time for us to leave.
Along with all of this COVID19 stuff. Ken and Stacey were very helpful in such a stressful time, and it is very clear that they did their very best to make in absolutely perfect!
I highly recommend this venue and all of the vendors that they recommend in their wedding packages.Sent on 07/31/2020

Great experience, loved the staff!
The entire Hilltop staff is soooo accommodating! The food was excellent and Stacey did a wonderful job keeping me in check both before and after the wedding! I bought The Sunset Dream package and all of the vendors that were included were top notch! The value of the package was incredible. I could never have had this kind of wedding at the other venues I was looking at. Stacey and her team not only brought our vision out through the decor, music, food and flowers, but she listened and gave me ideas I didn't even think of! It was beautiful and fun! Do the Sunset ceremony for sure! Thanks Hilltop Family for making our day amazing!Sent on 01/18/2021
