"We just got married at Elliston, and holy cow we want to do it over again every weekend! Madeline was the best day of coordinator we could have asked for. The day of went off without any issues! She worked seamlessly with all of my vendors, I felt pretty famous not having to worry about anything around me. As for Elliston... you will not find a more beautiful venue. The stone mansion is to die for. They updated the front pond and it beats any other winery in the valley (dare I say Napa too??). The patio has been updated and expanded to the perfect size. I just can't get over how perfect everything is. We've had every guest tell us that this was the most amazing, beautiful, fun, relaxed and loving wedding they've been to! The combination of the best coordinator and venue is something we will always cherish." - Kristie & Erik - April 26, 2019
