11.2.19 Wedding at Ellis
My family and I couldn’t recommend The Ballroom at Ellis Preserve enough. From the staff, to the building, to the food, this venue is first class all the way. When starting the wedding planning journey, we looked at 10 places in the Philadelphia suburbs. None even came close to the look and value of Ellis. On our tour, my mom and I walked into the Ballroom and started to cry – its that pretty! When booking at Ellis, they make everything so easy. There are so many things included already that would typically be upgrades at other venues (premium bar, dessert stations, cake, gold chargers, Chiavari chairs, etc.). During the planning process Carly was so helpful and quick to respond. Its so hard to plan/decorate a wedding when you’ve only been to the venue a few times, but she really put me at ease! On wedding day, the staff was incredible…Megan ran the show and Brielle attended to my husband and I. Brielle was so amazing and made sure we had a drink in our hand the entire night 😊. Our parents even had dedicated servers to make sure that they had everything they needed. The food at cocktail hour and dinner was excellent and I still have guests commenting on how great it was.
THANK YOU Ellis Preserve for the best wedding we could ask for!
