New business in spotlight: Quartz Hill Estates creates new memories for couples in historic location | Business

Jessica Huggart and partner Greg Koontz bought The Chef’s House in the historic Lower Italian Gardens site in November 2021, just a stone’s throw from their own Mokellumne Hill home.

The couple wanted to “create this really cool, loving space,” says Huggart, and needed a change of pace. After injuring her back as a result of a car accident, Huggart found she just couldn’t live the long, hard days she had as a successful full-service wedding planner in her previous business. Instead, the duo will create a unique wedding destination that honors the area’s heritage while offering couples and their families a beautiful, personalized space, right here in Calaveras County.
