A perfect venue!
My wedding day at The Elm Hurst was the best and easiest day of my life! The staff and especially wedding coordinator were so on top of everything that I had nothing to stress about. The meal was likely the best meal I've ever had and all our guests said the exact same thing. All the serving staff were so friendly and helpful, everyone felt like a priority. I cannot recommend this venue more!Sent on 15/08/2021

The venue was absolutely beautiful, and all the staff are SO dedicated to making your day go smoothly, including working as semi-wedding planners so they know exactly what you want the day to look like.
We had Phillip with us all day, and he even brought us wine while we were getting our wedding pictures done!
Absolutely beautiful here, and amazing staff. Would definitely recommend if you're considering them.

Sept 18th Wedding
Such a beautiful spot to have a wedding! Erin and Chantal were wonderful to work with through the entire process! They were so accomodating with everything due to Covid-19 and ensured we had the best day. We had a mishap with one of our vendor but Chantal swooped in and saved the day! The entire staff was professional and courteous. We had Meghan as our designated server and Sabrina as bartender. Both ladies did a wonderful job and made sure we had everything we needed through the day. Thank you guys so much! We couldn’t have chosen a better venue!Sent on 19/09/2020

Unforgettable wedding at Elm Hurst Inn and Spa
We had our wedding at Elm Hurst Inn and it was incredible!! If you are looking for an all-inclusive wedding venue, look no further. Elm Hurst has packages with food, drinks, tables, chairs, linens, etc. all included which made it so easy for us to plan. The venue itself was so beautiful that we had hardly any decor for the ceremony and reception. All of our guests commented about how beautiful the grounds were for strolling around and taking photos. The food was incredibly delicious and the bartender was so good at mixing drinks that at one point all the guests had the same cocktail because he made it so well :)Sent on 10/09/2020
We had to move our wedding date due to the COVID shut down and the Elm Hurst staff were extremely accommodating. They worked with us and our vendors to find a new date and moved us into a larger room to facilitate social distancing. Erin and Chantal responded to our e-mails very quickly and answered all of our numerous questions before our big day. On the wedding day, we had our very own server who would find us to give us food and drinks, which was amazing because we were so busy and didn't have time to sit and eat before dinner. In general, the whole day the staff made us feel like royalty!
Overall, we had an unforgettable experience at Elm Hurst and we highly recommend them to anyone looking for a wedding venue!

We had so many upsets just before the wedding, with my sister being diagnosed with cancer and not being able to attend, family squabbles and a bank account fraud the day before the wedding that we were sure that the entire wedding would be a disaster. To the contrary, Chantal and her team made our day run so smoothly and perfect. Absolutely no worries, they were on top of everything! Perfect job and the most perfect day!! Thank you!Sent on 21/09/2019
