    Wonderful Experience

    We had our wedding ceremony and reception at the Elgin in November 2019. They were great to work with, and the space is absolutely beautiful. We were able to reserve most of the rooms for family and friends the night before the wedding, and had a lovely time hanging out and making ourselves at home in the several gathering areas spread throughout the space. Organizing the ceremony and reception was virtually painless, and the Elgin team went out of their way to make everything come together perfectly. What I love about this space is that we can come back to stay and remember the experience - it is going to be a yearly tradition for my husband and I to stay at the Elgin on our anniversary.

    Amazing Venue

    Staff did an amazing job of answering all of our questions leaving up to the wedding. They had a back up plan if it rained and they were very accommodating. All of our guests said it was the perfect place and it fit our Gatsby/1920a theme! This is definitely a place we will recommend and we also plan on coming back to celebrate anniversaries!
