We had our wedding at the Ballroom at Ellis Preserve and it was a dream come true. The moment my husband and I walked into the ballroom, we knew right away that this was our perfect venue. The ballroom is absolutely gorgeous! We had been to a few Finley weddings before and knew that they are the best in the business, but Ellis Preserve even further exceeded our expectations. From the moment we booked to our wedding day, they were always available to answer any questions. They kept us updated on our timeline and went over every detail with us to make sure they knew exactly how we envisioned our wedding day. Our guests were blown away by the food. It is now six months later and we still have family members and friends raving about the cocktail hour, entrée, and dessert room. Megan was our maître d' and was an absolute pleasure to work with. She made sure that our day was completely stress free and it allowed us to have the time of our lives. The entire staff there was excellent and I am so thankful. I cannot stress enough how absolutely amazing Finley Catering is and how gorgeous Ellis Preserve is. Thank you for making our fairytale wedding come true.

Our wedding was absolutely perfect. I cannot say enough good things about this place. The staff was excellent. They were always there, whatever we needed without hesitation. We barely had a chance to eat but the guests have been RAVING about how delicious everything was and the few things I did have were amazing. The venue itself is obviously beautiful but the food and the service really elevated everything above and beyond our expectations.
