I can’t say enough about the Ellison Place and what a simply beautiful and elegant venue it is. My daughter and new son-in-law recently had their wedding reception here and everything was magical! It was large enough to hold all our families and friends but was so comfortable it never felt too big! But what really sells this place is the staff. Diane and Lori are incredible, so easy to work with, helpful and accommodating to your needs.
