I cannot begin to describe how amazing Cranwell was before, during, and after our wedding. Megan and team were with us every step of the way.
Before our wedding Megan dealt with our many requests, changes, and multiple communications. During our wedding there were three power outages. (The entire town on Lenox lost power.) I didn't even realize there was no power during my ceremony as Megan kept everyone cool, calm, and collected. During my reception the power went out, but night Manager Nick was amazing running through the kitchen to find power and get the reception back up and running. The brunch the next day was fantastic!
The guests could not say enough about the helpful staff and wonderful atmosphere. The food was fantastic. Prior to my wedding, we had a luncheon in the bridal suite and it was delicious. Our appetizers and dinner were also superb. Thank you Cranwell!!
We held our wedding and reception at The Cranwell Resort on October 17th, 2015 and overall the experience was amazing. Here are the highlights.
- Megan Hajduk, the coordinator and the rest of the Cranwell staff. Megan is an absolute pleasure to work with. She is caring, flexible, responsive, professional and just overall a wonderful person. Working with her alone was enough to make all the planning and execution of the wedding an enjoyable experience at Cranwell. We had some potential sketchy weather and Megan worked with us down the last couple hours with regards to having a backup in place if we needed to make a last minute change.
- We held the wedding outside and had the reception in the main ballroom. Both locations are beautiful and worked perfectly for our ~130 guests.
- The food was amazing both with a wide variety of flavors and in the overall quality of the food. The wait-staff that worked the event were excellent as well, adapting on the fly to some changes in our schedule.
Overall, I could not be happier with our experience and would highly recommend this venue to others.
Cranwell was the perfect place for a wedding. The ballroom is breathtaking with large floor to ceiling windows looking out on to the mountains. Fortunately our ceremony and cocktail hour were both able to be held outside with great views of the mountains as well.
The resort was extremely accommodating to all of our guests. They were able to get priority at the spa and for golfing. The hotel rooms, especially the mansion rooms were beautiful and extremely spacious. The bridal suite is so large and striking you really feel like you live in a mansion for the weekend.
Everyone at the cranwell was extremely helpful and Megan and her staff took care of almost anything my husband and I could have possibly thought of. The staff made the entire weekend effortless and easy for us which is exactly what you want on your wedding day.
Other then that the food was delicious breakfast lunch and dinner were all scrumptious.
We had a petite elopement wedding at the Cranwell and the staff, service, accommodations and food were exquisite! The grounds were beautifully manicured and every person we met was extremely professional, friendly, and attentive to our needs. The mansion is beautiful and very comfortable. On the eve of the wedding, we were surprised with a lovely bottle of champagne and tray of freshly dipped chocolate strawberries. We can't wait to return for our anniversary next August! Thank you!!
Our wedding at Cranwell was all we could have dreamed of and more. Leading up the big day, Megan and Lyndsey always answered our email inquiries with prompt and informative responses. They kept us on track and made planning a smooth and minimally stressful process. Any time we had a question, we could keep calm and email Megan or Lyndsey! We got married at a church in Lenox but had our reception afterwards at Cranwell. The view of the mountains at the cocktail hour couldn't be beat. All of the servers were kind, fun, and flexible with all of our requests. During our introductions to the ballroom, we were so impressed by how smoothly the Cranwell team operated. Donna and Lyndsey held the doors open until the time in our introduction song when we were scheduled to enter the ballroom. Then Donna was there to guide us through details during the reception like how to cut the cake and where to stand for the bouquet toss. The ballroom was an absolutely beautiful setting and the food at the reception was delicious and we got great feedback from all of our guests on it! Finally, the bridal suite was an amazing space to get ready in. The Cranwell Spa team handled hair and makeup smoothly. And when we returned to the suite after the reception the space had been cleaned, and there were champagne, chocolate covered strawberries, cake, and all of our gifts waiting for us. Cranwell was always one step ahead of us and we couldn't be more grateful to the entire team there for making our wedding perfect. We highly recommend this venue without hesitation, thank you Cranwell!
Cranwell and Megan were amazing to us! Every possible detail was covered, response time was immediate throughout the whole process and we could not have been happier! The wedding weekend was absolutely amazing and stress free because of the staff and their attentiveness to every aspect of our wedding. It was the best weekend ever!!!
Perfection. Beautiful venue, responsive staff, excellent food. Our 07.11.15 wedding could not have been better. From the champagne waiting for our guests on their arrival at the ceremony, to the gorgeous cocktail hour on the veranda (with a standout raw bar!), to the rocking reception in the ballroom, Cranwell met and then exceeded even our highest expectations.
The Cranwell was everything my husband and I wanted and more!!!!
The Cranwell Resort was an absolutely amazing place to have my wedding reception! I do not know where to begin exactly because from the first time my husband and I met with Megan Hajduk, the coordinator, to leaving a few days after the wedding...everything could not have been more perfect. The day of the wedding was absolutely, perfectly, wonderful. The Spa staff, specifically Maura Stanton, the Spa Service Coordinator, and Bridget Coughlin, the head stylist, were very talented and able to handle a large group of 14 women getting their hair and make up done...and we finished with plenty of time to relax before the ceremony started at 1:00.
From the start Megan was able to make planning our wedding stress free. She often would be sending an email with information before I could ask a question. She was prompt, polite, and efficient. Megan responded to questions within 24 hours, which was huge during the planning part of the wedding.
The day of the wedding leading to the reception to the "after party" snacks, the Cranwell staff and Megan were five star all around. The food, the drinks, and the staff were non stop throughout the evening. Nick, the wedding/dining manager was also amazing. Very attentive and stayed as late as my husband and I to make sure everything was taken care of. The entire staff at The Cranwell was absolutely amazing...I cannot say enough great things about our wedding. There is nothing that I would change!!!!
Our guests have emailed and called stating that it was the absolute best wedding they have ever attended.
My husband and I found the entire staff at Cranwell proffesional and a pleasure to work with. Specifically, Megan Hajduk and Nick Grimaldi worked tirelessly to be sure every detail was attended to. All our wedding venue needs were met on budget and on time. And the novelty of getting married in a Berkshire mansion? Priceless! It was a beautiful day. Thank You Cranwell!
AMAZING! Everything was absolutely perfect! The staff went above and beyond, all requests were fulfilled, and the venue was gorgeous. Our wedding was more than we ever dreamed it would be.
The staff at Cranwell are unbelievable! Our wedding planner (Megan) and the Food and Beverage Manager (Nick) were both fantastic. We had lots of specific instructions and their attention to detail was amazing. All of the staff were wonderful and our guests could not say enough good things about them. The venue is beautiful, the food was superb and the service was the best! Thank you so much for making our wedding weekend so memorable!
Incredible to work with from day one. I could not be happier with our decision. It was the best day of our lives, very much due to the professionalism and experience of Cranwell.
Thank you, Megan! We couldn't be happier with how well everything went!
Our daughter was married at the Cranwell Resort and the service was outstanding. Every request in the months leading up to the wedding was handled quickly and on the actual weekend they took very good care of us and our guests.....everything was perfect.
Quality was superior in all aspects of our function.
Cranwell helped make my wedding magical and memorable. I can't wait to return again!
