Hillside Gardens and Events is absolutely gorgeous and we couldn’t imagine having our wedding anywhere else! We 100% recommend having Erika Weeks as the wedding coordinator. With this amazing venue + Erika, it will definitely be the wedding of your dreams!

Erika Weeks was an amazing wedding coordinator for our special day! 12/10 stars! She was thorough, organized, responsive and made our goals for the day completely come true. She assisted with our arch decor and I can’t imagine it any other way! Definitely worth it to have her assist with your last wedding pieces!

The whole crew at Hillside went above and beyond to make our wedding day amazing. The grounds were gorgeous and so eclectic. Definitely the Colorado vibe with the view of the mountains that we wanted at such a great price for a spacious and beautiful wedding venue. The bar is amazing and they were able to accommodate specific drinks and even had their own cocktails that were delicious as well as great beer and wine choices.
Even on the most beautiful Colorado day the wind and cold can strike and their pavilion, fireplace, and heaters made our dinner so cozy and comfortable.
I strongly encourage you to hire their coordinator, Erika, to make your day seamless and to make coordinating between vendors super easy so that you can enjoy the beautiful space and your day.
I can’t thank Donovan, Ash, Erika, and the whole crew at Hillside enough for creating such a magical space that we will cherish forever.

Hillside Gardens was a beautiful venue for our daughter’s wedding. The gorgeous gardens were the perfect setting for the special day. Beyond that….Erika Weeks was PHENOMENAL to work with as our coordinator. She had the whole wedding running as smooth as silk from our first meeting through the wedding. We didn’t have to think about or be concerned with anything except celebrating the couple thanks to Erika!

Our History

Hillside Gardens has a history as unique as this beloved venue. The beautiful four acres, with scenic mountain views, was used as a dairy farm in the early 1900s. Then, it became a neighborhood nursery in 2000. It was so charming that people started asking to get married there. Eventually, the whole place was transformed into the enchanting venue it is today.

At the end of 2021 brother/sister duo, Donavan and Ashlee took over ownership of Hillside Gardens. Like all old places, Hillside probably has a thousand stories to tell. We hope you join us to be a part of this new chapter.

Celebrate with us!

Located in the heart of beautiful Colorado Springs, we have been family-owned and operated for 20 years. The property includes 4 acres of beautiful gardens with incredible panoramic views of the Front Range and Pikes Peak. We have unique spaces to accommodate intimate gatherings or large parties.

Let’s Get You Hitched!
