your venue should be too
“Tellus360 is the best place to have your wedding reception. My husband and I got married there in Oct. of 2016. We had about 130. The price was extremely reasonable and the food was excellent. Tellus made sure our day was perfect and they took care of everything. This venue is unique and you won’t find anything else like it in downtown Lancaster. I would highly recommend this venue to anyone.”
“We held our rehearsal dinner upstairs in their 2nd floor lounge and had a family style dinner. All staff was very attentive and accommodating. They provided space for us to put our gifts to our parents and wedding party and took great care of any food allergies that our guests had. The food was amazing! I was so impressed with the flavor and quality of the meal they provided and could not be happier with their services.”
“We had our wedding reception at Tellus360 in May 2017 and had a wonderful experience. We did the cocktail hour on the second floor lounge and then moved downstairs to the Temple for dinner and dancing. We had 112 guests (plus some babies and toddlers) which was a little tight for the seated dinner, but worked out great once dancing starting. I wouldn’t have wanted to be in a bigger space because it made the party feel full. We did a buffet which worked out well. Terrence, the chef, did an excellent job with our menu and we were able to stay on budget! Bill was a great help throughout the whole process. Our guests had so much fun at the reception and it was easy for folks to either walk or take a cab back to their hotels afterward. We are very grateful for everyone at Tellus who helped the reception go smoothly so we could just relax and enjoy the whole experience!”
“Just days before our great, big, outdoor wedding, we were sure of three things: one, we had more guests than we prepared for; two, we had no tent in the event of rain; three, it was definitely going to rain. I’ve never been a great planner, but, even for me, this was looking bad. We considered canceling the party. We invented ways to un-invite friends so as to keep it “family only.” We tried to trick ourselves into finding it reasonable for 100+ people to share 1 small bathroom. Then, when we wracked our brains to think of spaces in Lancaster that would be able to hold the whole count of our party, we thought of Tellus360. Like sunbeams bursting through rain clouds, we saw the option of Tellus as a beautiful, albeit presumably unavailable, venue. But we called anyway. And Bill answered. So we asked the ridiculous question. And he gave us the incredible answer: yes. With literally three days notice and within a ten-minute conversation, we had established a room, a time, a price, and a staff. The Tellus team graciously allowed us to bring the band we booked. They were there when we arrived to help us set up, and stayed to make sure that our needs were met throughout the party. And really, it was quite a party. We look back on our wedding day as happily as any couple whose plans weren’t completely derailed would. Tellus360 exceeded our expectations with elegance, sweetness, and charm. From the whimsical lighting, to the floor-to-ceiling mural by Aaron Shiflet, to the rustic wood and the red velvet banquet, the space was inviting and warm. Bill and the staff took exceptional care of my (new!) wife and I, and all our people. We are beyond grateful that our “big day” played out so differently than our months of planning had intended. We count ourselves lucky that it rained. And now, by way of this wonderfully vibrant place, Lancaster has an indelible part in our wedding story. Truly, in so many ways, Tellus360 is instrumental to the heart of Lancaster County. It beats, it rocks, it explores, it plays, it jams, it thinks, it sings, it nourishes, it tries, it works, it loves.
We sure do love Tellus360.”
“We recently held our engagement party on the green roof at Tellus360 and could not be more satisfied. Everything was PERFECT, even during the summer heat wave (98 degrees that day!) . We held our party in the evening and the entire rooftop was shaded by 6pm. The breeze was perfect and the views of the sunset were awesome. Bill made our evening flawless-answered all my annoying emails weeks leading up to the event, helped set up and made sure all of our guests were happy. Almost every guest complimented the food, which most of the ingredients are grown right on the roof! The space is beautifully decorated with plants and flowers so there is minimal need for any additional decor. The yard games entertained the children and adults who attended. I would recommend this space to anyone looking to have any event in Lancaster. We are so happy that we chose Tellus360 for our special night and were able to show off the venue to our closest friends and family. Thank you Bill and team at Tellus360!”
“We hosted our rehearsal dinner on the garden rooftop this June 2018. It was BEAUTIFUL and surpassed our expectations. We worked primarily with Lou leading up to the day, and Bill the day of. Both were exceptional to work with, and you can tell they pride themselves on creating enjoyable, stress free, and memorable events for you. We had one large corner of the rooftop to ourselves for our group of 25 guests. It was exactly what we wanted- a casual dinner where people could mingle before sitting down. We chose to have open bar for the first hour, which was great. Servers brought drinks to our group, or guests could walk over to the bar for a drink if they wanted. There were two lawn games set up which the kids AND adults loved. We sat our group among three long wooden tables for dinner. We had guests pre-select their meal choices, and the serving process was super easy. I loved the feeling of togetherness this set-up provided. After the rehearsal dinner, the wedding party stayed on the rooftop and had drinks at the bar. It was so much fun! Our hotel, the Marriott at Penn Square is literally right next to Tellus 360 and makes it super convenient to simply walk back afterwards. Overall, my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our rehearsal dinner. Our guests loved the food and experience. This is a truly unique venue that you will love!”
“Having Tellus as our venue was one of the best parts of our wedding day. We had a cocktail hour on the 2nd floor and the reception was held in the Temple. From the gate, Bill was both professional and personable and reassured me that he and his staff would be taking care of everything we needed. I met with Bill several times and each time he was overly accommodating and paid attention to all of the details. And then there’s Terrence…we would give this review 10 stars if we could based on our experience with Terrence. Our guests were wowed by the food. We worked with both Bill and Terrence to create a custom menu. Terrence came with great ideas and suggestions based on our requests and delivered a PHENOMENAL meal. I have only great things to say about how organized and committed Bill, Terrence, and the Tellus staff were on our big day. You will NOT be disappointed in picking Tellus as your wedding venue. It was one of the best choices we made for our day. Thank you again to the Tellus team!”
“I’m so glad that we chose to have our wedding at Tellus360. Their event coordinator, Bill, was the most considerate, helpful guy that anyone could ask for on the day of their wedding. He even picked up our tablecloths for us from our vendor the day before the wedding so that we had one less thing we had to worry about! Everything from the food, the layout, the drinks, and the lighting were perfect. We had a taco bar that accommodated our half-vegetarian, half-carnivore guests. We’re still hearing folks telling us how great our wedding was.”
