Choosing Elle by Stella Wedding Villa & Gardens as our wedding venue was the best decision we could have made! The venue is stunning and had so many options for designing every element of our day from getting ready to the first look to the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception.

Hi & welcome to Elle
She is located just a few minutes from the downtown core of St. Jacobs, nestled into the Conestogo riverside amidst a mature tree scape and 4 acres of land. The venue has sprawling outdoor space (perfect for ceremonies & cocktail hour) that includes a gazebo, water feature, and impeccable gardens to name a few. Complimenting the grounds is The Wisteria Room - 14 ft high ceilings, natural light and quaint views with white-washed accents from head to toe. The combination of indoor and outdoor space creates not only the perfect backdrop for your wedding day, but an evening flow like no other. Elle is whimsical yet bold in all the right ways, and ready for you.
Let's get planning! Every event is carefully executed by the Stella Collective Coordination team. Event flow and guest experience are far too important to sacrifice, so our coordination team works with you diligently to ensure your vision is coming to life.
wedding villa & gardens
Elle by Stella isn't just a venue. It is a perfectly curated masterpiece of love in bloom. Literally. Our gardens are designed with every season in mind. From thousands of tulips to lilacs in the Spring, full hydrangea bushes in the Summer, to dahlias and a bright Autumn tree line in the Fall, the grounds are breathtaking. While we are seasonal from April through until mid-November, we tour all year round!
We've got you covered for an easy morning start. Get ready at your wedding venue with your best friends, vendors, and family. Let our coordination team do the work while you sip mimosas, spend quality time with your wedding party, and make memories that will last a lifetime.
THE GROUNDS AND TERRACE
From ceremony to cocktail hour, to first dances, the outdoor space hosts ceremonies by the water feature, first looks in the gazebo, golden hour sunset kisses in front of the horizon, and most importantly, cocktail cheers on the terrace. String-lit, and partially covered, the terrace is equipped with an outdoor bar, lounge furniture, chic umbrellas, fire tables and more.
Reception and dining room like no other. Elle has a 275-degree bar so drink service is not just pretty, but quick, a permanent faux floral installation over the head table and speech podium, custom harvest tables and distressed wooden chairs- fit for any aestetic.
If you didn't already know, Gilt Catering is the exclusive caterer of Elle by Stella and The Stella Collective. Setting the bar that every caterer should aim to meet, Gilt delivers buzz-worthy quality each and every time. See for yourself! Come for a tour or inquire with Elle and receive Gilt Caterings menus!
An all-encompassing experience like no other. Hospitality is at the forefront of your wedding day and planning.
Trella, Stephanie, and Kristi are the same faces behind Cellar 52, The Timber Barn, Gilt Catering, and Hotel 52 in St, Jacobs. Their love for hospitality, particularly weddings, comes from their passion for hosting, event planning, travel, and indulging. They are best friends and business partners. Being women-owned and women-run is exactly how Elle got her name. There is just something about us, about our team, about our passion that keeps us striving for perfection. Having fun while doing what you love makes a difference.
Every wedding at Elle is unique and unlike any that has come before it. The space transforms for each couple, becoming their own personal canvas for their love story. What will yours look like?
