Client Feedback - Elm Street Studio

Thank you SO much for allowing us to celebrate our engagement at Elm Street Studios. We had such an amazing time and we are so grateful for you and Sherry. You both really made the event so special! We will (and already have) recommended your space for work events and other special occasions. Thanks again!

"My fiancé Willie and I had our engagement party at Elm Street Studio and we are so happy with our time there!  When we first set up an appointment to look at the venue, we immediately fell in love.  The artwork was tasteful and Shelly's husband was so helpful (we came on the wrong date).  Right there we knew that we wanted to have our engagement party there!  We can honestly say that they really helped pull the engagement party together.  My fiancé and I were moving at the same time and did not have the time to pay attention to the small details, but Shelly and her team definitely did.  On the day of, Shelly and her team were so helpful and really helped us relax and enjoy ourselves during the event.  They had everything set up so nicely and were so accommodating to our last minute requests!  We have already recommended Elm Street Studios to our friends and co-workers for work related and social functions.  Elm Street Studios is truly a gem and when we celebrate our 5-year anniversary, we will definitely want to host that event here!  Thank you Shelly and Elm Street Studios for making our engagement party such a success.  We are so grateful to you!"

Engagement Party

My two daughters and I attended the mixed media workshop at Elm Street Studio and had a fantastic time. The instructor was very helpful and she brought so many differnet mediums to work with. We all walked out with masterpieces, literally, nice enough to hang in my house. It is a fun outing for a group or by yourself. I have lived in Keller for 25 years and have been waiting for a facility like this for a long time, thank-you Elm Street Studio for all that you bring to the people of Keller.

I have had the pleasure of having my birthday party at Elm Street Studio. We had about fifty people. It was sheer perfection!! On that evening we were able go outside where there is a lovely backyard and patio. Keller is so lucky to have a facility like this. Elm Street was so helpful in the planning of my party along with supplying a kitchen and anything else we needed. If anyone in the area is looking for a facility for any type of party, go to Elm Street Studio!!! It is a tasteful, beautiful gallery setting that you can not find anywhere else!

signed up for a 6 week art class at Elm Street Studio and loved every minute of it. My instructor was just great. We learned color composition and I ended up finishing two paintings. Even if you don't think you can paint you will be so surprised at how well you can do with personal instruction. Love the facility, teacher and even my paintings!

"When looking for a venue to throw a professional yet laid back party in a space that fit the creative look & feel of our new brand we stumbled upon Elm Street Studio. From beginning to end this process was painless, and Shelly personally made sure this was the case throughout. Whether we were scheduling, arranging food, getting technology setup, planning layout, and more we felt this process would be much more painful than it was. Elm Street Studio made it happen. Not to mention, we felt the fee paid for such a quality facility was more than fair. It definitely will not be the last time we utilize that space!"

I was so impressed with Elm Street Studio! I would recommend your venue over and over again. It was so wonderful to work with you from another state on my first shower. Everyone kept talking about how much they loved the venue. You did an awesome job from the tip sheets to the picture taking. It was so wonderful when you gave the bride and bridesmaids a CD of the photos of the day. It's perfect because we were all so wrapped up in the event. The bride even said it was so thoughtful. Thank you again for a wonderful experience.

I hosted a bridal shower here and it was fabulous! The space was perfect and the event coordinator helped me plan a wonderful event, even though I live out of town. I would recommend Elm Street Studio again and again!

I would highly recommend Elm Street Studio for your child's birthday party. The atmosphere is perfect and the owner is so sweet. I had my 6 yr old twin girl's party here. The theme was hot air balloons. All of their friends loved drawing and painting and playing fun games outside. Thanks again Shelly for a wonderful party!

Children's Birthday Party - April 2013

Hi, Shelly! Thank you so much for the thoughtful sentiments expressed in the card you sent us.  In our opinion, the event could not have gone more perfectly.  Aside from our guest of honor and her sister arriving a bit later than intended, everything went according to plan.   It is rare that we have had to plan an important occasion such as this, so there is always a bit of nervous anticipation. But you made it so easy for us. You are a delight to work with and the studio was such a perfect location to host our event.  The quaint gallery setting created the ideal environment we wanted in order to make our guests feel comfortable and encouraged to socialize.   The location provided such a unique experience - one that has etched a wonderful memory that our family will surely never forget. Thank you for everything and we wish you and Elm Street Studio much continued success.   You can be assured that we will let others know of our great experience and hope that we will have an occasion to contact you again in the future.  Please feel free to use any of our comments. Sincerely,

Rick & Norma

"We recently held our daughter's birthday party at Elm Street Studio.  Shelly, the studio owner, was so helpful in planning and carrying out the event.  The studio is impeccably maintained, and the large back yard with shade trees was an ideal place for outdoor birthday games and activities.  It also created a beautiful backdrop for many of the birthday photos.  We had a great experience and would highly recommend Elm Street Studio to others."

Childs Birthday Party, March 2013

"As a photographer, I appreciated the simple elegance of the Elm Street Studio.  The Studio is like a blank canvas that quietly lets you fill its space with colors, lights, music, and flavors.  It is the perfect size, both indoors and out, to hold an intimate gathering.

The charm of the Studio was only surpassed by the excellent service and graciousness we received from Shelly.  Thanks to Elm Street Studio, my Mother's birthday celebration was PERFECT."

I'm so glad we chose Elm Street Studio for Keyziahah's Sweet 16. The space was neat and tables were ready to go when I arrived. I'm also grateful that Shelly helped me with the decorating. Everyone had a great time and the pictures we took came out fabulous!!

I also recommended someone who was looking for a quiet setting for a birthday party. Keep up the great work Shelly and those who help keep Elm Street beautiful.

Thanks again for everything,

Sweet 16, June 2013


It was a complete pleasure working with you and using your facility for our reception. We felt everything went perfectly and have zero complaints. Many of our guests commented on how wonderful the location was and how beautifully everything went, everyone had a wonderful time. If I had to do it all over again I wouldn't have changed a single thing! As a matter of fact I have already given information about your services to a couple of people that attended.


Thank you so much for all of your help though the whole process. You are truly a wonderful person to work with and I hope to find a reason to do business with you again in the future!

Wedding reception, July 2013

Hey Shelly,

Sorry I'm barely getting to your email. We have been extremely busy getting ready for the baby doing last minute things and with our daughter and her sport activities. We really enjoyed having our event at Elm Street; everything went perfect as planned. I thank you for helping us set up decorations, that was one of the things I didn't think we would have time for. The waitress was a lot of help to us, and everybody enjoyed her mixed drinks. I loved the venue as well; it was perfect for our little intimate event. I honestly do not have any complaints and will continue to spread the word for being a great venue! My parents, family, and friends were all impressed as well, it really felt like home away from home! 
Thanks for your help, and letting us host at Elm Street Studio we really appreciate it.

Thanks, Ashley, Juan & Giselle
Baby shower, July 2013

I couldn't have picked a better place to have Brittany's bridal shower. I got so many compliments on the studio. Everyone thought it was perfect. It was just the right size and we had everything we needed. I will definitely refer you to my friends and keep the studio in mind for future events.

I would like to thank you for all the times you talked me through everything and helped me through all the times I was so worried. I don't think it would have been as successful without you. I really appreciate you!

Thanks for everything.
Bridal shower, August 2013

Our company had the pleasure of hosting a Caribbean night at Elm Street Studio located in Old Town Keller. The casual and elegant atmosphere of the venue provided the perfect backdrop for our event. Working with Shelly is wonderful as well. She is both attentive and responsive. We will definitely host future events at Elm Street Studio. Thank you Elm Street Studio for helping to make our event a success!

Hi Shelly,
I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed working with you on the baby shower for Sydney.  You were such a joy to work with and I will certainly recommend your venue!

Catherine Walker
Event planner - Baby shower , May 2013

I was very excited to find your venue since day one. It couldn't have been better. The venue was very clean; our guests were very impressed with the place.  We look forward to many gatherings at Elm Street Studio!  

Erica Hernandez
Baby shower, July 2013

I cannot say enough positive things about the experience.  You gave the right amount of support and information that we needed for our event.  Your vendor suggestions for additional rental equipment and the caterer saved us so much time.  Both were very professional and we were very pleased with their services as well.  Your staff that provided support at the event was excellent.  They blended so nicely that they were like one of the guests.  I just loved Stephanie!


We give you high marks on all counts.  We will recommend the ESS to our friends and acquaintances that are in need of an event venue and, of course, if we are in need again, the ESS would be our first choice.


Thank you so, so much for a wonderful experience.  Ultimately, Tom and I were very proud to host this event.  Andrew and Hillary were very pleased as well.

  Thank you,
Janet Melesky

Thank you so much for your help. Everyone loved your place and even had some inquiries of the details for events they are planning. You were very flexible and we appreciate that. I cannot think of any negative comments or really any suggestions in general. Thanks for a great evening; fun was had by all.

60th surprise birthday party, October 2013

I booked Elm Street Studio to host a couples shower for my Son and his fiancé.  The venue was wonderful and a great setting for the 50+ guests that came.  Shelly Hye (owner) was so helpful and informative and a joy to work with.  I highly, highly recommend Elm Street Studio for those special occasions that require more room than your home can accommodate.

Couples shower, November 2013

Your Venue is beautiful with unending potential for customizing any event. You made us feel welcome and comfortable to decorate as we wanted. You were completely accommodating, and more helpful than ever expected. All afternoon our guests complimented the facility, ranging from the beauty of the grounds and house to the art on the wall. Our friends and family had a wonderful time.


Thank you so much for helping us celebrate our first baby shower for Dakota and Tristin.

We had a wonderful baby shower at Elm Street Studio. The venue is beautiful. Everything looked great. There was plenty of room for all of our guests. It was easy serving everyone. We loved the kitchen area and we loved the location. The backyard is beautiful and is a great place for taking pictures. We received many compliments saying how the shower was so nice and pretty.  We appreciated the opportunity to have our baby shower at Elm Street Studio. 

Thank you!

The studio was the perfect location for a bridal shower! It was beautiful and I received so many compliments about how lovely and comfortable the venue was. It really gave our shower a charming ambiance. Also, we had plenty of space and the staff was extremely helpful with everything from booking to setting up!  I would definitely recommend!

Thank you so much for the use of the beautiful Elm Street Studio! We had such an amazing time and the studio was the perfect setting! Jessie was absolutely wonderful and helped me tremendously; I couldn't have done without her! I hope to be hosting future birthday parties for the little one in the years to come at Elm Street Studio!

Thanks again!!

Baby shower - November 2014

The Elm Street Studio was a perfect choice of venue for our wedding. We wanted a small place where we could have the ceremony and take pictures with family and friends. My only regret was that, due to the weather, we could not use the outdoor area. However, indoors provided us with a clean, simple, yet beautiful space for the wedding party. Shelly was very helpful with every aspect of the event planning; always available to answer questions and accommodate our needs. We are pleased and happy that we chose Elm Street Studio as the location for our wedding. It will be such a treat to visit in the future, enjoy the art, and walk down memory lane.

Wedding - December 2014

Good Morning!

Thank you SO MUCH for all your help facilitating our shindig! It was spectacular, and we heard so many compliments about you, the yard, the building, all of it. You are fantastic, and I appreciate you immensely!

Again, you all are wonderful, and I will highly recommend you to anyone I come across.  Have a lovely day,

Wedding and Reception - March 2015

Thank you so much for your help with my sister's shower! We loved the venue so much and you were so helpful. I will definitely give you feedback on Facebook. Do you happen to have the pictures you took at the shower ready to send? We're very interested in seeing them :)
