M + B Reception

Back in June, we were lucky enough to host a very special wedding reception near and dear to our very own staff. The White-Hollander reception was quite the celebration, featuring an amazing band, buffet and all kinds of other goodies in our event space, The Great Room, as well as our Back Bar. Below is a beautiful video by Inkspot Crow Films + pictures of our own… enjoy!

Southern Bride & Brew

Attention brides, grooms & brewery lovers — We wanted to take a second to share with you the article featured in Southern Bride & Groom Magazine, featuring Top of the Hill Restaurant & Brewery and The Great Room! Here’s a sneak peak:

“‘Top O’ is an iconic Chapel Hill institution. Their main restaurant is ideal for a bachelorette outing, luncheon or even a casual rehearsal diner. Their latest addition of the Back Bar and Great Room have taken their private event offerings to a new level. They now host formal rehearsal dinners, weddings and receptions in these spaces. And best of all, your event is complemented with Top of the Hill microbrews.”

Pablo & Hunter’s Reception

We were so pleased to host the wedding reception of Pablo and Hunter!  The couple hosted one of the largest receptions we’ve ever done—the entire floor, including Back Bar, was dedicated to the couple’s special day!

The best part about renting our entire floor, was the ability for the couple to spread out their dancing, cocktailing, food, and much more, while still allowing their guests to enjoy the most intimate moments of their special day.

The couple chose to put their food in the Back Bar for their guests to enjoy a more casual atmosphere where they could enjoy our great food!

Even with their food in Back Bar, guests in line could watch all of the action in the Great Room–from the dancing to the couple’s first dance–through our state-of-the art camera system.  The Great Room boasts the most current technology, with a camera that can be focused anywhere in the room, and projected onto any one of our 11 TV’s around the floor. We can even make DVD’s that can capture your event from start to finish!

One of our newest preferred vendors Lynn, from Lynn’s Traditions, supplied the couple’s cake—and it was beautiful!  The part we liked best though? Lydia stays for events to cut her own cake! We think it’s great that Lydia works hard to make sure every detail about her creation is tended to.  For more information on Lydia, you can reach her at her website.
