Highly recommend the Elms as a wedding venue!!!
I cant say enough good things about the Elms as a wedding venue! The property is gorgeous, including the garden gazebo for the photos and ceremony, as well as offering a unique destination where all of our guests coming in from out of town could stay and have our needs met for the entire weekend. Reasonable prices. I am most thankful for our wedding coordinator from the Elms, Tori, who is very good at what she does! Quick to respond to any communication and helped us navigate any and all challenges, especially the tough ones due to COVID. We had a lot of last minute cancellations from my side of the family who no longer wanted to travel due to COVID. We are so thankful to the Elms for being flexible and helping us come up with an updated arrangement that we were very happy with! The wedding day went off without a hitch. Gorgeous wedding, delicious food, everyone had a great time! A big thank you to the Elms for helping to deliver the wedding of our dreams!Sent on 10/25/2020

A Fabulous Wedding with Fabulous Staff
We cannot say enough good things about The Elms. When searching for vendors, we sought out vendors who were reasonable, affordable, and honest. Tori, Lacee, and the entire Elms staff met all of those criteria. It was fabulous to have so much support from Tori and The Elms staff.
Tori and The Elms have been so helpful in the process of rescheduling our wedding due to the pandemic and have made sure that all of our dreams came true in the safest way possible. The hotel itself is beautiful and we had a fabulous stay at The Elms outside of the wedding. We extended our stay for a few more days as a mini-honeymoon and went on the Ghost Tour with Jim. It was all fabulous.
Tori thought of every little detail and remembered every comment or question we had. She was exceptional. She made sure everyone was in the right place at the right time. Tori and the Banquet staff ensured all tables were in the right place, the decor they placed was beautiful, and my husband and I didn't have to get up for anything the whole event.
In regards to the wedding and reception, the food was amazing, the drinks were strong, and the staff was incredible. The entire weekend was fabulous and we cannot wait to have our larger event next year at The Elms. One of the main reasons why we picked The Elms is because we didn't want ourselves or our family to have to do any work during the event. Everyone was able to relax and have a fabulous time.
A benefit of having the wedding at The Elms is that we didn't have to worry about our guests at the end of the night having to drive home. During our stay, every staff member checked in with us to make sure we had everything we needed and that we were enjoying our time. The bridal suite was beautiful and our hairstylist from The Elms exceeded expectations.
We honestly cannot say enough good things about our experience with The Elms. We cannot recommend them enough and we look forward to celebrating anniversaries and other events there for many years to come.Sent on 08/09/2020

The perfect wedding weekend
We chose the Elms because we wanted a wedding weekend not just a day so it had to have a venue and a hotel. We didn't want to run all over town for good photos. The Elms turned out to be so much more. The hotel is so charming. It has a historic feel and several acres for photos. The images turned out better than we ever hoped. Almost every guest at the wedding also came for the whole weekend. The spa, lawn games, and ghost tour were just some of the things we did. Our guest were so impressed at how much the hotel offered and how accommodating they were. If you like to eat, you will be very happy with the food. The restaurant and catering staff were our favorite! They were fun, attentive, and the food is so good! Tori was our hotel coordinator. She handled everything we needed help with. On the wedding day, I didn't have to stress or think about anything. If there was an issue, no one told me =) My husband and I plan to celebrate there every anniversary!Sent on 11/06/2020
