Knocked it out of the park
Everything about Finley catering and Ballroom at Ellis preserve was first class, and overall just excellent. It was an easy decision when picking after we viewed a few other venues. They give you one flat price, and do not nickel and dime you for inclusions. This really helped when determining our budget and what we could / couldn't afford when it came to vendors, etc.Sent on 03/31/2020
Carly, Meghan, and the rest of the team were great. Emails were always answered quickly, and they really made our day go perfectly. We'd also be remiss without mentioning the food - it is unbelievable. Tons of cocktail hour options, main courses, desserts - our guests have raved about it.
Thanks again to everyone at Finley and Ellis preserve. Couldn't have picked a better spot and company for our wedding!
