Anessa and the staff at The Ebell were equally amazing. Anessa responded to all my emails at all hours, met with my planner and me multiple times throughout our year of planning and went above and beyond by looking into how to make all of our unique requests happen. Anessa worked with us to help us personalize our wedding and ensure that it wasn't cookie cutter, but a true reflection of us. She happily made changes and rolled with the punches, such as changing the table layout less than 3 weeks before the wedding! Even when working out tough contractual/financial issues, Anessa was candid and always willing to work with us. All of the staff at The Ebell were so happy to be there for us, even though they were working late into the night on New Year's Eve!
The food! We loved The Ebell so much (and that love was reinforced when we met with Anessa for the first time) that we booked The Ebell without even tasting the food! I read reviews from other brides and they were right - the food was delicious! We had so many compliments on the food - particularly the lamb chop lollipops and pulled pork BBQ sliders hors d'oeuvres, the butternut squash soup, the NY Steak, and the mini grilled cheese sandwiches served late night! With 230 guests, there were the right amount of servers continuously bringing out food, passing champagne, and serving at the open bar.
We had so many wonderful comments from guests about how gorgeous the wedding venue was and how smoothly the whole night flowed. Our guests truly felt taken care of and I thank the Ebell staff for making it happen.
What better way to ring in the new year than to start it off married??! We were so happy to celebrate with you and make it a night you and guests will always remember. What a day!! Thank you for your kind words and kudos - you truly experienced that which we strive for: uniqueness, elegance, glamour... thank you for being a part of our legacy and for allowing us to be part of yours.
Warm wishes to you always!
