We will refund half of your total amount paid to date at time of cancellation if date is re-booked, this includes any additional items paid for at contract signing or after. No refunds will be given unless we re-book the date, and any refund the Lessee is entitled to will be refunded after the original date has been re-booked and has occurred. If you cancel within (6) six months of your contracted date no refunds of any kind will be given. Rescheduling the wedding to a later date must be done six (6) months prior to your contacted date. There will be a $500.00 fee to reschedule your wedding /event date after the six months cut off. We highly recommend getting event insurance.
No flammable liquids will be allowed inside the Event Center. Under close supervision and notification to an Ellis Ranch Manager, the use of small butane stove/burner and/or sterno heat units are acceptable. Only LED or battery-operated candles may be used as any decoration. Unity candles may be used for the duration of the ceremony only without being in glass. Live flower petals are permitted but must be removed prior to the end of the event. Rice, confetti of any size, birdseed, glitter, fake snow, luminaries, silly string or fireworks are not permitted anywhere on the Ellis Ranch, Inc. premises. The implementation of the previous items at an event will result in surrendering the client’s damage deposit. Spilled wax, burn holes/marks, on linens will result in loss of damage deposit also and if the replacement cost of linens exceeds the amount of the damage deposit you will be billed for remaining balance. Fake petals are not allowed to be thrown outside; it is considered littering. No straw, hay bales or corn stalks. Tablecloths are required on all of the tables. NOTHING SMALLER THAN A ROSE PETAL MAY BE USED FOR ANY TABLE DECORATIONS!!!!

It is free if you do the cleanup; leave the facility how you found it, trash to trash cans, everything you brought in leaves with you in addition to all food, cake, gifts, decorations, ect. Or, you can pay the Ellis Ranch $1.50/person (based on final guest count) and you take only what you want and leave everything else to be cleaned up by our Staff (trash, unwanted cake/food, decorations, etc.).
No, sadly, we don’t. These were discontinued many years ago to transition the Ellis Ranch into the stunning Wedding and Event venue that it is today.
