From the very beginning the venue was very kind and helpful in scheduling our event. We were connected with Stacey who manages the events of the Hilltop Tavern & Inn. She was helpful in guiding us to the package that worked best for our budget. I would truly go with a package if you're able to afford one. All of Stacey's recommended vendors were fabulous and a total delight to work with. They all were able to work together throughout the planning process and day-of to make a (what appeared to be) effortless day for both my husband & I, as well as our guests. The Hilltop Tavern staff was also the top in their industry and I couldn't have felt more blessed to have them running the catering and bartending for the event. Much of my family has worked in the food industry so we are not easily impressed, but we were all totally impressed and grateful from the start of our wedding weekend there. The venue itself is absolutely gorgeous. I recommend a sunset wedding to really use the grounds to their full potential. It was a glorious space for some of the children who attended as there was space for them to run about and the hill behind the altar makes a great spot for the guests to take pictures and enjoy the true beauty of the desert. It was amazing how Stacey took my ideas and helped me define what I really wanted out of the wedding. Her taste and understanding was so appreciated and she and I truly worked together to create a beautiful event. Her expertise is unparalleled and her floral arrangements are unique and so very beautiful. I can't sing her praises and the venue's praises enough. They made the stresses of planning a wedding enjoyable and manageable.Sent on 09/10/2018
