We had both our ceremony and reception at the chalet. It is a beautiful place at a wonderful value. What I loved best was that we had the chalet all day, from 10 AM to midnight. This gave plenty of time to set up and get ready, my bridesmaids and I were even able to get our hair done in their backroom. The staff there is amazing. Julie was very good about helping us decide layout and how things should go. The chalet is so beautiful very few decorations were needed.

Elm Creek is a beautiful site for a wedding. It was perfect for us because if it was sunny we had the beautiful patio to be married on, and if it was cold or raining we had an amazing stone fireplace as our back drop. We were lucky to have good weather and were married outside. All evening long I heard many wonderful compliments on the venue. The staff was very friendly and easy to work with.

We had our reception at Elm Creek Chalet and it was exactly what we wanted. The chalet staff was wonderful at all points of contact and incredibly helpful - even jumping in to help with decorating because they wanted to. Because of last-minute changes in my life I didn't have as much time as I'd hoped to prepare and the Elm Creek staff were beyond helpful. We got to enjoy this huge party we planned and that meant the world to us. We love the environmental-forward mission of Three Rivers Parks, too.
