Absolutely Perfect!Reviewed on 1/05/2015
When selecting a venue for our Wedding, my husband & I knew that food & location were important factors for a venue. From the moment I walked into Hillcrest, I knew that this would be the absolute perfect venue for our celebration - the beautiful woodwork, tall windows & gorgeous views of the course. We wanted an outdoor ceremony with a tent – their Grounds Manager was more than accommodating & allowed us to place a tent on their short range. He even met with the rental company to ensure no details were missed. Michelle, Kelly & Missy were incredible to work with! They are responsive & on top of everything, they completely went out of their way to make our day everything we imagined, and it was! The day of our Wedding was perfection – everything I dreamed of & more – the food was outstanding, the space perfect & the service over the top. My husband & I couldn’t be happier – thank you Hillcrest!

If you are looking for a venue that knows exactly what they are doing, Hillcrest is the way to go! I have never felt so confident that I had nothing to worry about the day of our wedding. Kelly at Hillcrest took care of our every need AHEAD OF TIME! We had centerpieces dropped off to be arranged by staff, as well as all of our photos, gift box etc. Unlike friends of mine who were married elsewhere, I did not have to coordinate runners or delivery people at all! Magnificent services, delicious food, and amazing staff! I wish we could do it all again!
