Personally, I don't think there was a better place to have a wedding. John and Rey were 2 of the best guys to work with on such a monumentous occasion. The venue is beautiful. All the employees were so helpful. And I am a it neurotic and John or Rey always picked up and walked me through whatever I had questions about. So I would I am so glad my husband and I choose this venue as it is one of the best looking venues in Iowa or Nebraska and so much was included. The price also wasn't bad for the venue and perks that we git. 10/10 would definetly renew my vows here in the future.

We loved everything about this venue! Perfect place if you want both your ceremony (outside looking out on the golf course) then reception inside. The only downfall is there isn't really a place to get ready at the venue. They did block off a bathrooms for us to use but we just got ready at someone's house. Email communication with the coordinator was good. We weren't sure when she was arriving the day of and had some questions so that added a little stress but it all worked out!

Lilac Hill is a family owned 80 acre property in Louisville, NE, about 25 minutes from Omaha and 45 minutes from Lincoln. The original founders of Lilac Hill, Don and Bev Maxon, bought this old run down property in the 80's and set out to create their own arboretum. There are dozens of old growth trees, hundreds of blue spruce, and thousands of flowering shrubs and plants, which provide beautiful color and depth everywhere you go. The space combines elements of BoHo, Rustic, Elegant, and Industrial in a romantic natural landscape. So many of our guests comment that they don't feel like they're in Nebraska anymore! The property is enclosed by trees, providing a feeling of seclusion and exclusivity where your guests can hang out under our 100' tall cottonwood trees and smell the lilac scented breezes. With seating inside for up to 300 guests, our space can accommodate nearly all party sizes. Come visit soon for a tour!

We are so happy we chose Lilac Hill to have our wedding ceremony and reception at. The property is beautiful, with so many different sites available to have the ceremony at (we chose in front of the old barn). Chris, the owner, was so easy to work with and very responsive. We were really happy with the pricing as well, and all the things included in the packages they offer. They also have lots of decor available to use for free! On our wedding day, everything went perfectly, and a big part of that was because of the help from Chris and Winter. We also really loved the bartenders that worked our wedding! If you’re looking to have a rustic/barn wedding, we truly can’t recommend Lilac Hill enough. You’ll be so happy you did!!
