"I got married at Elliston Vineyards and it was amazing!!!! Elliston is breathtaking. We got so many compliments on how beautiful the space is, from the ceremony location up to where the reception takes place. Madeline was our coordinator and she was amazing, answered every email (and I went through periods of sending a lot) set everything up for us and even packed everything up for us at the end of the night so we didn't have to. Everyone loved the food and the bar. We did wine, beer and specialty cocktails. I couldn't have asked for a better place to get married!" - Meridith & Martin - April 1, 2017
