"Our event coordinator from Elliston was Madeline and she was AMAZING. When my (now) husband and I went to visit Elliston while comparing venues, we knew right away that this was the place we wanted to get married. It has a beautiful setting with lots of water features, beautiful old stone manor house, gazebos, a perfect cocktail deck with gorgeous natural setting. The indoor event space has beautiful high ceilings with exposed light wood. We decorated minimally (only floral centerpieces) and it had a natural elegance. We wanted different chairs and Madeline took care of all of it. They even work with a great caterer. I had questions about the food, mentioned it to Madeline and she was so kind to us! She gave us another tasting and gave us a ton of suggestions and alternatives. On the day of the food was actually better than the tasting!! One of our entrees was recommended by Madeline and she was totally right - it was delicious. The staff was amazing and made sure everyone taking family portraits after the wedding got a chance to try the hors d'oeuvres. So the venue is beautiful, the staff were very responsive, polite and easy to work with, food was great, and to top it off it was one of the most affordable bay area wedding venues. I want to make a shout out to Madeline who was beyond amazing on the day of. If anything went wrong, I didn't hear about it. She was always easy to get a hold of and on the day of placed all my decor perfectly. I even left placement of some stuff up to her and it turned out great! I can't recommend Madeline and Elliston enough. P.S. try the champagne - we're hooked!" - Pam & Ian - June 24, 2017
