Simply put: exceptional!
Simply put: EXCEPTIONAL!
My husband and I recently celebrated our wedding at The Pinery and every single detail and minute of the day not only met, but exceeded our expectations.
Pre wedding: We both have very demanding careers with incredibly busy schedules that often require us to work 24+ hours and nights and the entire team at The Pinery accommodated our schedules without question to make things as easy as possible on our end. Communication was through face to face interactions, email and even text messaging. There were also several phone and “after hours” meetings due to our inflexible schedules. I was surprised at how easy the entire process was.
Wedding day: WOW! From the time we arrived at the venue at 8am until we left well after midnight, the day was perfect. The staff was receptive to every request and last minute change needed. The floral staff double checked the arrangements with me early in the day and were happy to make any changes I wanted. Lunch was provided for our entire wedding party as well as mimosas for the girls and bloody marys for the guys. Neither myself or my husband were inconvenienced at all during the day, the team simply took care of everything. The ceremony started on time and the rest of the night flowed effortlessly. The reception was AMAZING and the DJ played music appropriate to the vibe the reception was going. The staff ensured we also were able to eat and the food was delicious. At the end of the night, the staff were still more than willing to help us clean out the rooms, load our cars and made sure we had everything we needed.
Post wedding: Since our wedding, we have received thank you emails from the staff and they have aided us with items that were accidentally left behind by some of our guests. So many of our guests raved about the beautiful views, friendly and helpful staff and outstanding food and beverage services. As we reflect on our wedding, we are very happy we decided to celebrate our wedding at The Pinery and would recommend it with highest praise!
Special thanks: First of all to Mackenzie, the coordinator at the venue, is OUTSTANDING at her job. She is communicative, punctual and organized. She was involved every step of the way and was available on our wedding day for anything we needed. She truly exemplifies professionalism and is among some of the best you can find. Secondly, huge shout out to Anthony, who was our DJ, for working seamlessly with the live band we had and for making our reception one of the most fun parties we have ever attended! He also accommodated last minute changes to lineups and speeches without faltering once. Also, big thanks to Lisa with the floral services. I met with her months before and showed her pictures of the ideas I liked and talked with her about my vision and she exceeded my expectations with all of the floral designs. Last, but certainly not least, thank you to the kitchen and bakery staff. The food was phenomenal and everyone raved about how great it all was!
I cannot recommend this venue enough! Thank you again to the entire team that made our wedding so special and so fun!

Our wedding at The Pinery at the Hill was everything I could have ever dreamed of. Mackenzie was amazing and so helpful along with all the other staff members there. I looked at many venues and never left feeling great and when my husband and I went to The Pinery and met with Mackenzie, we knew we were getting married there! It is such a beautiful place and they made everything run so smoothly. I loved that is is an all inclusive venue, planning a wedding is so stressful and this truly took so much stress off of planning. I highly recommend getting married here, you will NOT regret your decision.

After looking at tons of venues along the front range, none of them even held a candle to The Pinery. Mackenzie and the entire staff at The Pinery made planning infinitely easier- especially planning from out of state. I can't say this enough- all inclusive is the way to go! No random hidden fee's, or paying for things you don't need to- they're up front and totally honest about everything and genuinely just want to make sure your wedding day is the best day of your life! Not only does it make everything less stressful, but everything included is amazing! The food was incredible, the cake was delicious, our flowers were gorgeous, and the service at The Pinery is unparalleled. The venue is absolutely stunning, and getting ready in the bridal suite the morning of with my girls will forever be one of my favorite memories, right next to having our ceremony on the gorgeous veranda and tearing it up on the dance floor thanks to the DJ that my guests still say was the best they'd ever seen at a wedding. Thank you so much for everything Pinery staff, you made our day absolutely flawless!
Alexandra · Married on 08/03/2018
My wedding at The Pinery was absolutely flawless. Mackenzie and her staff were so helpful and kind, and made my wedding feel so polished and beautiful. It was such a relief to find a venue that was so stunning and inclusive. Not only did they provide every need for me, but they made what could be a stressful planning event into something utterly seamless and easy. I never had one moment of stress, and because of them I would have never needed to. I'm so grateful to them for making my wedding dreams come true, for surprising me with complimentary mimosas, water, and coffee as I got ready there that morning, and for making what could have been stressful experience a lifetime memory. God Bless that staff and beautiful venue! Also since the venue's terrace wraps around with mountain views, the sunset over the mountains makes for Incredible Pictures!!! Definitely go here, nothing else compares, believe me I looked all over the area. I wouldn't trade my experience there for anywhere else.
Lisa · Married on 07/16/2018
I have had so many people tell me that my reception is the best reception they have been to. I truly believe it is because of the staff at The Pinery. Michelle was great throughout the entire process, with quick responses to any question I had and going between my mom and me as we planned. The staff the night of the reception kept the pace going and made sure everything was taken care of. My sister commented that the servers were ready to take people's plates as soon as they were done eating while being careful not to take a plate of someone who was still eating but had gotten up. I would highly recommend the Pinery!
Angela · Married on 06/22/2018
We could not have asked for a more perfect wedding at the Pinery!!! Their staff is top notch and does an extraordinary job at ensuring you have the best day possible. Everything from the food, flowers, DJ, dessert, and service was exceptional! Our guests are still raving about how our wedding was the best food they’ve ever had (beef medallions and salmon for the win). From the very first time we toured the venue and met Michelle, our wedding coordinator, we knew we were in good hands. Michelle left no detain unnoticed the entire year and a half of planning and on the actual day. She made sure everything was organized and flowed well. One of our favorite things she did was had my husband and I take time to enjoy ourselves in the bridal suite while she brought us up appetizers and champagne. It truly was a nice touch. Logan, the DJ, had the entire dance floor packed ALL night! He really listened to what we wanted and more importantly what we didn’t want. The communication between Michelle, the chef, the baker and the florist was all seamless. Everyone was always on the same page. We cannot thank the Pinery and their staff enough for taking part in the best day of our lives!--Angela and John 6/22/18

The Pinery was the PERFECT place for our wedding! We worked with Michelle, who was an amazing coordinator and helped us plan every aspect of our wedding. Not only is it in a beautiful location overlooking downtown Colorado Springs and Pike's Peak, but we loved that The Pinery was pretty all-inclusive which made wedding planning easy! The package comes with the ceremony and reception venue, catered food, cake, flowers, DJ and access to the bridal suite/groom's lounge. Our guests loved the appetizers, dinner, cake and dessert bar. The bartender and bar options were also fantastic. We planned the wedding from out of state, and Michelle and her team made wedding planning incredibly easy from afar and when we were in town. The Pinery has plenty of parking for guests, and some nearby hotels (of which there are plenty!) provide a free shuttle to The Pinery. Our wedding was exactly what we wanted: high quality and great location, with staff who are excellent at what they do. The Pinery is also very transparent about their costs, and since we got married in the off-season, it was great for our budget! I would highly highly recommend anyone have their wedding here!
A · Married on 11/03/2017
Amazing venue!!! Almost all inclusive and they have an awesome coordinator that keeps in touch with you throughout the whole planning process as well as helps with everything on your wedding day. They do almost everything for you and the building and scenery is beautiful! My husband and I had a perfect wedding day/night at the Pinery!
Jennifer · Married on 10/07/2017
Where to begin! It was more beautiful than I had even imagined! Michelle, our wedding planner and main point of contact, was amazing. She made it all look and feel so easy! Every question was answered promptly, every request fulfilled with a smile. (Even the very last minute ones I sent as my hair was being done!) She did not forget a thing. She even ran my rehersal (with no help from my officiant) with out missing a beat. She and the team at the Pinery fulfilled an absolute dream wedding. I cannot stress how amazing it was to have one person handle all the important vendors/decisions associated with a wedding. In addition to being your ceremony and rehersal venue, they are your food, booze, flowers, cake, linens, Dj, planner, set up, take down, etc! They even had decor and other little things I was able to use, like a beautiful card box, table numbers, flower girl basket, etc! Speaking of flowers, the flowers could not have been more beautiful. Absolutely stunning! Liese, who did the flowers did an exceptional job with them. She also reappeared in an instant when my bouquet needed adjusted. The food was great; we recieved many compliments. (My only constructive feedback is here, however. The vegetarian guests were lost in the shuffle. Be sure to tell your guests to speak up. My shyer guests didn't say anything and I obviously did not know they didn't get the right plate until it was too late. Also, the bar tenders were very unfriendly. To me, to my husband, and to my guests. Pretty odd choice for someone who works primarily off of tips...) Back to the Pinery...The venue was breath taking during the day and even more so at night. Every worry or guilty thought about money or anything else quickly faded away as the day went on. I am so glad we went with the Pinery! It was a dream wedding!
Jane · Married on 06/25/2017
This venue is awesome! Everything was top notch: location/view, bride/groom rooms, food, cake, decor, flowers, DJ. Michelle and her staff were extremely accommodating at every request. A stress free event that our guests thoroughly enjoyed. This venue is all inclusive which makes planning a breeze. Loved it!

The Pinery went above and beyond in helping us plan and orchestrate the wedding of our dreams! Mackenzie got to know us as a couple and was more than helpful and accommodating in making our wedding personal and stress free. The venue itself is incredible, but the entire staff make The Pinery one of a kind!
Shelly · Married on 07/04/2015
Absolute perfection! The Pinery at the Hill is a spectacular setting for a wedding. The ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner & dancing were each in separate rooms which made transitions from one to the next so easy. The outdoor balcony and patio with stone fireplace were wonderful spaces for our guests to enjoy the beautiful view of downtown Colorado Springs and the mountains. The food was amazing-exactly how it tasted and looked during the tasting. Everything was served promptly and at the right temperature. The service was amazing-each and every person who works at The Pinery went out of their way to meet our needs. They really cared that everything was exactly the way we wanted and that the bride and groom had a stress-free experience. Every question throughout the planning process was answered promptly.
In addition to the meal The Pinery provides a wedding cake. Ours was delicious, unique, and beautiful. The Pinery also creates the floral arrangements, bouquets, etc. Lies Butler, the florist, is incredible. The flowers were stunning. She was so incredibly easy to work with.
Our guests will be talking about The Pinery for a long time because of the beautiful setting, delicious food, and wonderful staff. I cannot recommend The Pinery highly enough. If I could I would give them 10, not 5 stars.
Jason · Married on 10/24/2014
I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for the wonderful job the entire Pinery staff did for our wedding this past weekend. The wedding, the venue, the ceremony, the food, the drinks, the music, the florals were everything we hoped for and more! You truly provided the backdrop to our dream wedding. I can’t thank you enough. Thanks again for everything!

We had our daughter's wedding here in June. The staff was wonderful and they worked very hard to fulfill our every wish! Absolutely beautiful venue. We are very happy we chose The Pinery at the Hill.

We couldn't have asked for a better wedding venue. Many of our bridal party members and other vendors told us they haven't ever seen a wedding as well organized and therefore relaxing. The wedding day was not stressful at all and we were well taken care of while planning. Guests commented that the wedding was one of the most beautiful they had seen. The staff went above and beyond to make our wedding day perfect. One of the best choices I made when picking a wedding vendor!
Jeff · Married on 11/08/2013
The Pinery was an amazing place to host a wedding! We cannot thank the Pinery enough for the amazing work they did to make our wedding day everything we hoped for! They provided great value and included the flowers and catering. The food was great and the flowers were beautiful! Our wedding was void of stress in many areas due to the professionalism and flexibility provided by the pinery! They had great connections for the wedding cake and DJ! They were very helpful in bringing everything together and allowing the decorations we brought to fit in perfectly with the venue. The price was reasonable and the service was amazing! If you are looking for a beautiful venue to have your wedding I would definitely suggest the Pinery! Your wedding will be beautiful and as stress free as a wedding can be! Thank you to the Pinery for making our day awesome!
Diane · Married on 09/21/2013
The staff and Lori at the Pinery were absolutely wonderful! I can't tell you how much I adore and appreciate everything they had done for us. I did not have one stressful moment planning or during the wedding and it was all because this venue had everything taken care of to the smallest detail. The food was delicious and the venue was just beautiful. I have heard nothing but wonderful things about our wedding. Everyone was very pleasant to work with and did a fantastic job on making one of the most important day of our life very memorable. Thank you so much!!

AMAZING food. so delicious, everyone was happy and satisfied. it didn't mater what we selected because everything was that good- we could have told them to surprise us with a menu and they would have killed it!
Jessica · Married on 07/14/2013
We worked with Alana and she was so helpful when we were making decisions about what things we should consider when choosing our food and ways to keep things affordable. I can't say enough great things about her and our food was perfect! Everything came out tender, nothing was overcooked and during our tasting the chef brought out our last dish and talked to us for a while! I would highly recommend The Pinery to anyone!
Kaitlyn · Married on 01/26/2013
Everything was absolutely PERFECT! They went above and beyond to make my day special, memorable, and relaxing!
Megan · Married on 09/21/2012
I cannot express enough how much we loved working with The Pinery. Lori and Amy were an absolute joy to work with. I had so many people tell me what a calm bride I was on the days leading up to the wedding and the actual day itself. I would attribute this to my husband, family, friends, but also to the venue itself. This was not just a site to hold our wedding at, they took care of many wedding details for us. The fact that the venue, florist, caterer, DJ and cake designer were all under one roof made the planning process a breeze. We showed up for meetings with ideas/inspiration images in hand and they took care of the rest. The day of the wedding was great for us because The Pinery set up all of our decorations, etc and packaged everything up at the end of the night. Definitely a stress free experience and a perfect wedding day.
Alyssa · Married on 06/22/2012
Incredible venue! Every step of the process was fun and easy with such an amazing staff to help along the way. Lori and Amy (wedding coordinators) were so accommodating and helpful that it made planning our special day even better. We have gotten so many compliments from our guests about how great the venue was, but even more about the friendliness and professionalism of the staff. We are so proud to have had our wedding here and would do it again in a heartbeat!
Jeremy · Married on 03/16/2012
The most amazing venue! Lori and Amy (the wedding coordinators) were extremely helpful throughout the whole planning process. They never forced their opinion on us, however, they would make suggestions and back them up with reason. We had multiple meetings before our wedding that put our minds at ease. We did not have to think about anything come wedding day because they let us know when things were happening throughout the day and told us exactly where we needed to be. So, so incredible, and to anyone who is getting married in or around Colorado Springs or Castle Rock, go with The Pinery, you will not regret it!!!
