    Best venue around!

    Our wedding at the Ballroom at Ellis Preserve was everything we could have hoped for! The whole day was perfect, from the food to the atmosphere to the amazing service. Our guests were blown away by all the amazing appetizers at cocktail hour and the “best steak we’ve ever had” at dinner. The ballroom itself was perfect for our ~170 person wedding, and we all had a blast at the after party in the cocktail room. The whole day ran so incredibly smoothly in large part due to the amazing staff, especially Brielle and Meghan who were a huge help through the process. If you want your day to be perfect for you and all your guests, we highly recommend considering the Ballroom at Ellis!

    Amazing Experience with Finley

    We live in Florida and were nervous about planning a long-distance wedding in Pennsylvania. Thankfully, the Finley Catering team at the Ballroom at Ellis Preserve made the entire process easy and fun through their professionalism and responsiveness. They were very organized during the planing process and were easy to work with. A lot of the wedding day items are included through the venue making the process even easier such as the catering, cake, linens, etc. You can also opt to hold your wedding ceremony on-site and also host an after party which we highly recommend. The day-of was a breeze with their amazing staff on-site ensuring that everything runs smoothly. We were able to relax and enjoy the day knowing that Finely would take care of all of the details. Thank you to the entire team for making our day so special.
