I seriously will rave about The Ellis forever!!! From the day we first toured the venue until the moment we walked out the door at the end of our reception, they were nothing but helpful, informative, knowledgeable, and all-around great people to work with. All of their in-house vendors were fantastic people to work with as well. Not only did the timeline of our wedding day move seamlessly, but the entire planning period did too.
