    Grand Ely Lodge did everything they could to make our day as special as possible. They worked within our budget and offered to provide anything we could possibly need from table linens to decorations. They were wonderfully accomodating and helpful.

    What an Amazing day! Everything turned out better then planned! Everyone was so friendly and willing to help. My only complaint was the original wedding coordinator I worked with left at the being of the process. Not all information was told to the new wedding coordinator and we had to replan a few things, but he was flexiable and helpful all the same!
