Our intimate wedding

What was your wedding theme? Décor? Setting?

I let the beautiful house speak for itself as it set the perfect mood effortlessly. I knew when planning a wedding I did not want to get caught up in the details of centerpieces or themes but instead focus on my marriage vows and my guests. The estate made a statement with its elegance and history while giving our guest something to awe over.

Flexibility of venue to meet your needs?

Rosemary was very flexible from the first email to the moment we walked out the door. She was flexible with the date, the time, the number of guest and reassuring me she would handle everything as the days until my wedding dwindled down.

Have both your reception and ceremony there? If so, make for a happy couple & guests?

We had the ceremony, cake cutting, a toast as well as our first dance. It was different and unique for our guest, as it was laid back yet included the fine elements of a larger wedding.

Favorite part of the venue?

I enjoyed how effortless the wedding was. A part of getting married as the Ellwanger Estate, Rosemary had become our unexpected "wedding planner" as she gracefully handled all the details including the flowers, the cake, the photographer, the music, arranging the officiant, providing coffee tea and a warm welcome as my guest arrived.

Perfect venue for our small ceremony

What was your wedding theme? Décor? Setting?

Because our wedding was between Christmas and New Year, we tried to embrace the season but at the same time avoid it being overly Christmas decorations like. Ellwanger Estate had gorgeous decorations the way it was when we first visited the venue and we didn't feel it was necessary to change it except for making space for the ceremony and a little dance floor for our wedding dance. We had only 12 guests for our wedding so it was very easy to accommodate all our needs indoors.

Flexibility of venue to meet your needs?

Rosemary was very prompt and efficient to satisfy all our needs for the ceremony. During our meeting there with the photographer he asked her to remove the mirror on the top of the fireplace and it was replaced with a very nice wreath on our wedding day. She also moved all the furniture the way we asked her to and very promptly. She also let us arrive earlier to have our pictures taken before the ceremony on the gardens to use the little day light left on the day. She did not run us out when our time was up either. It was perfect.

Have both your reception and ceremony there? If so, make for a happy couple & guests?

We had only our ceremony, wedding dance and champagne toast there. The actual reception with dinner was at a restaurant. But all our guests and the two of us were very happy with everything we did at the Ellwanger Estate.

Favorite part of the venue?

The venue had a lot more to offer than what we ended up using, like the piano or the organ, but they still added to the traditional and refined look of the venue. For a small wedding it was excellent we didn't have to do much for the venue to look great. Last, but not least, it was one of the few places that responded to our inquiries for a small wedding from the start and Rosemary made coordinating our event very simple and hassle free. (It was incredibly frustrating for us to not get responses from other places.)
