An absolutely beautiful venue
Choosing Padua Hills as a venue and catering for our wedding, was one decision that had the greatest impact at our event. The venue was breathtaking, the food was delicious, and the staff was very professional. Everything went perfectly well! If you enjoy great food, you will love the food at Padua Hills. You will not be disappointed!
The Day-of Coordinator ensure that all those small details got carried out by working alongside with all our vendors. She made sure everything went smooth. The venue was open to new ideas, and along side with our florist @memos_florist and entertainment express, our wedding was absolutely stunning.Sent on 10/17/2020

This venue was so beautiful! I knew from the beginning that I wanted to have my wedding here. When you book the venue, you are the only event of the day, which makes it that much more special. The outside scenery is breathtaking, and the interior is very charming. The food is also the best! My guests all raved about it!Sent on 02/24/2020
From the very beginning, the whole team at Padua was great in helping plan the wedding to make it the best day ever! They all helped to make sure everything was planned how I liked. They are serious experts. Also, on the day of, Tammy was the best coordinator. She made sure everything was taken care of so that I could enjoy the day. Thank you Tammy! Also, there were two other people that day (sorry I can't remember their names!), but they made sure I had a drink or whatever throughout the night, which I thought was a really nice thing to have on your wedding night.
So, choosing Padua Hills for my wedding was seriously the best choice I could have made!

This venue is just amazing. Breathtaking views, a beautiful atmosphere, and awesome food. So many people have said it’s the most beautiful wedding they have attended. As for the details... they kind of handle it all... we had a few missing boutonnières and Tammy whipped them up in a quickness, the food is just amazing (imagine a steak the size of your head), they make sure you and the groom are taken care of, and really handle all the tiny little details so you don’t have to worry about a thing.Sent on 10/20/2019
