Weddings at The Elms

wedding_sampleThe Elms overflows with ambience for an affair to remember. Stroll down the brick path underneath the shade of 100-year-old oak trees, to the wedding of your dreams. We can assist with your wedding plans for 50 to 500 guests.

We offer complete wedding packages, which include the entire house, the grounds, all downstairs rooms, and three beautiful guest rooms, food and beverages, linens and china, and staff, depending on your needs. We provide as little or as much assistance as you require. We can also provide names of qualified photography, flower, music, cake, salon, and restaurant vendors to make your event as stress-free as possible.

We’ll customize a menu to your taste, whether it’s simply hors d’oeuvres or a grand buffet.

The three beautifully renovated guest rooms rent for the day or weekend of the wedding and feature king-, queen-, or double–sized beds, bathrobes, separate tubs and showers, satellite high-definition television, free local calls, hair dryers, radios, and alarm clocks. A delicious Southern-style breakfast is included with each room, served each morning in the dining room or, weather permitting, on the veranda.
