Meet the Team

At Poplar Hill, we foster a strong sense of camaraderie within our team. We affectionately refer to ourselves as the Poplar Hill Family because we work closely in an intimate industry. Our goal is to create a welcoming and comfortable workplace that feels like home so that your special day can be filled with the same warmth and familiarity.

Phil Colarusso


Phil is the designer with all the big ideas that come to life here at Poplar Hill as well as with his other business, Luminated Landscapes. He has an eye for detail like you couldn’t imagine which keeps us on our toes and makes Poplar Hill an ever changing venue. Each time you come by, we are positive you will find something different no matter how big or small. The love and warmth of this property is largely due to Phil & Beth’s dream of giving couples a beautiful place, that is also their home, to start the next chapter of their lives. You’ll usually find Phil on the patio smoking a cigar or cooking THE BEST food for dinner.

Beth Colarusso


Beth is a full time nurse and and if you have not met her in the healthcare world, you’ll see her at nearly every event helping with final touches and the needed details. She has an impeccable ability to help with all the emotions that come on a wedding day. She shares the same passion as Phil, opening up their home to help the next chapter of many love stories to come. If being a nurse isn’t enough, she is also the gardener, florist, grounds keeper that keeps all the stunning flowers alive and flower beds immaculate.
