Hillside was a gorgeous setting for our daughter's June wedding. Having Pike's Peak in the background is something we particularly loved. We loved that it was spread out so that our guests could explore. The pavilion was perfect for the reception, especially for our elderly guests who did not have to travel to a separate location.

Communication could have been better. Larry - the owner - contacted my new son-in-law during their honeymoon about the bar tab.It would have been nice if he had sent a paper invoice or an email with the final amount, we could have taken care of the bill immediately.

We had an afternoon/evening slot, which meant that the venue was available at 4:30 pm. This created a very tight schedule for a 6 pm wedding, reception, and photos. If possible, I would recommend trying to book the place for the entire day to take away some of the day's stress.

I definitely recommend Hillside Gardens for a gorgeous wedding day venue.

They were great. They were a little slow on calling back, but once they started to get to know us they really worked with us.
Very beautiful venue!

BEAUTIFUL place for a wedding! With mountains in the background and gorgeous greenery and flowers, who could go wrong? They have a bunch of eclectic old farm decor and equipment in the lower gardens, which made for some great vintage-looking photos! I had the evening slot, and since no one was scheduled before me, they let us come in a little early to set up. They are great and will help out in many ways. Teri is also a florist and can provide flowers if you need to as well.

This venue is goregous as all the guests raved to be about it. It is outside with the mountains in the background for the ceremony than there is a covered pavilion for the reception. It is very Colorado feeling. It is not run that well and is a bit disorganized but I just met with the venue many times and kept emailing to get confirmation on decisions we had made.

We just got married on 04/08/12 & I was so extremely happy that we got married at Hillside Gardens & Nursery. We had so much fun doing pictures with our wedding party on the 4 acres. The cottage were the bride & bridemaids get ready was perfect for us, and my groom never saw me before the wedding! Teri planted flowers in all the pots right before the wedding and everything was nice and green. We were so pleased with our over all experiance with Hillside Garden!

Love love love Hillside Gardens! Our wedding was absolutely wonderful. The only thing that made me a little nervous throughout the process was that they aren't as formal as other vendors about a lot of things. They don't follow up via email as quickly as a lot of other vendors and I don't think I received a receipt for my deposit. However, there are really only two people running the place and though they don't necessarily do these extra things they absolutely have a system down and they don't forget anything, you may just have to call to check in with them to get some comfort.

The only other minor annoyance we had was that they cornered us about the bar tab at the end of the night. (Again the professionalism thing being a bit of an issue). I understand they want to make sure you pay, but they really should have simply collected a credit card number upfront that they ran at the end of the night. We didn't really care that they wanted their money right then and there, we just cared that they didn't inform us ahead of time or make arrangements ahead of time. It sort of temporarily killed our wedding buzz.

Those minor annoyances aside, this place is a truly unique gem and anyone that wants a cool place where you can sort of decide what kind of vibe you want should check out this place. Teri is the sweetest and somehow manages to stay super organized despite the fact that she does everything from bar tending to gardening to flowers, to who knows what else. Highly recommend it.
