About Pinery at The Hill Wedding Venue

775 West Bijou Street

Colorado Springs, CO 80905

The Pinery is southern Colorado’s premier destination for weddings, celebrations, and corporate events. Built in 2013, this venue is the vision of Mitchell Yellen, owner of Altitude Hospitality Group. One day, as Mitchell was driving down I-25, he noticed an old, run-down building he felt God was guiding him to. He purchased the building, but the economic recession in 2008 slowed his renovation plans. 

Demolition and renovations began in 2008, and the 22,000-square-foot venue finally opened in October of 2013. This property and the surrounding area have seen remarkable growth and rejuvenation. The Pinery at The Hill has become the city’s most-loved wedding venue. 

The team at The Pinery includes Kelsey Horwitz, Executive Chef; Liese Butler, Executive Floral Designer; Karson, Entertainment Director; and Mitchell Yellen, the owner.
