Best decision I ever made !!!!
Words can not describe how amazing this venue is. I recently had my wedding @ the Ballroom at Ellis Preserve on Oct 4 2020, and Finley catering has by far exceeded my expectations. As a Covid-19 bride I can say that Ellis was the absolute best decision I made for my wedding. Through all of my planning , the team made me feel valued and made sure my day was everything I dreamed of. My wedding planner Megan and her assistant were so accommodating and paid attention to every detail. Also the food and service were fabulous !! My family and friends are still raving about this venue. It truly was a fairytale wedding and I am forever grateful to Finley and the Ballroom @ Ellis for giving me this special day.
10/10 across the board!
Absolute perfection!!! Best venue, food, service, florist, ever.
The Ballroom at Ellis Preserve was a dream venue, and every single aspect of our wedding day was truly remarkable and seamless. The bridal suite was spacious and fun, the service from start to finish was absolutely impeccable, and the FOOD - I heard from countless guests that this was the best wedding food they have ever had and I could not agree more. The cocktail hour spread was insane, dinner was delicious and every plate was hot, and the dessert spread was off the charts. The staff was professional, attentive, and friendly. They went above and beyond to make sure me and the groom, our parents, and our guests felt special and well taken care of. I have to give a special shout out to our maitre d, Abel. I've been in a lot of weddings and I have never seen a maitre d/day of coordinator who is so on top of things yet so chill at the same time. He was funny, incredibly attentive, and made sure we didn't have to think or stress about a single thing on our wedding day. Abel, Tina, and the whole team at Ellis were nothing short of amazing and we are forever grateful for the unforgettable memories they helped us create. The Ballroom at Ellis Preserve checked every single box of what a perfect wedding should be and I would recommend it to anyone and everyone!!!
