Wonderful and Beautiful

We looked at several venues and kept coming back to Hillcrest. Kate was great to work with and helped keep me on track with timelines. She was there on our wedding day to help things run smooth and take care of any issues. Our money went a lot further at Hillcrest when compared to other venues. It was a beautiful setting and our guests loved it!

Hi! I have over a decade of experience in client services and have built The Hillcrest Estate from the ground up. This was my childhood home and my current family (husband and toddler) live here now in a wing of the home. In 2016 my parents decided to move to a smaller home and the mansion was on the verge of being in disrepair. We began renovating the estate in 2018, and have since rebuilt the veranda, added landscaping, a new patio, woodland ceremony area, accommodatios for up to 14, and have just finished renovating the entire 9600 square foot mansion.

Ever since I was 4 years old, I have dreamed of renovating and restoring this home and roughly 30 years later, we have done just that! I am incredibly passionate about this property and treat each event and client as though we are family. Having people experience this magical property and build memories is what I am passioante about!
