I’ll start off by saying this place is hands down amazing and the best decision we made for our wedding.Sent on 07/06/2019
We first met with Rachel, 13 months before our wedding and who first gave us a tour of The Elan and went through all the wedding packages that they offer. It’s a very beautiful location, especially the Alexandria room and the Skylight room where we did our ceremony. We were really impressed by the amount of food that they offer for each package, as well as an included Palermo’s Bakery Cake, a wedding day coordinator/ maitre d and a bridal assistant.
The road to the wedding
Rachel and Steven are by far excellent at answering any emails and returning calls. We had so many questions that we thought we annoyed them but they were very patient, knowledgeable, helpful and kind throughout the whole process.
We met with Steven, the BEST Maitre D EVER, a few months before to do a food tasting and to go over the new menu that the chef will launch during the wedding season. The food was by far excellent. The chef definitely organized a great fresh, trendy menu that would attract the 20-30s adults, while also pleasing the older crowd and kids. The Elan’s menu ranges from your classic traditional Italian, Latin, Asian, and new American. Steven also made sure we had a signature cocktail of our choice, which was one of the best Mojitos in the North East!
Rachel and Steven worked with all of our vendors to make sure everything was going to run smoothly for our big day and it did!
What more could we have asked from The Elan? They exceeded our expectations and made our day magical and stress free. Also, a special thank you to Maria whom is an exceptional bridal attendant. Maria anticipated any and everything we needed without even having to ask. Everyone at The Elan goes above and beyond. If I or any one I know needs an event venue, I will definitely not hesitate to recommend The Elan!
Thank you to The Elan Crew!!!

Perfect Wedding Day!
My husband and I were married on July 5, 2019 at the Elan. We had the most perfect wedding day thanks to the wonderful staff at the Elan. We worked with Rachel to help us book our wedding and she was great. She was quick to respond to any questions we had and fully explained all the wedding packages available. As the wedding day got closer we met with Steven and he was awesome. He walked us through the whole process and made our day as stress free as possible. On our wedding day Maria was there every step of the way anticipating our every need and want. The whole process was great and stress free! We had a perfect wedding day and enjoyed it to the fullest. The food was delicious as well!Sent on 08/01/2019

The Elan is an elegant venue where I have officiated several weddings. The atmosphere is refined and the service is wonderful. The couples I have serviced seemed very pleased with this venue all around.
The Elan has a central, easy to get to location. The ceremony room has a nice skylight and makes for a warm setting. The staff are friendly and deliver great service.
