A Plan B that turned out to be better than the Plan A
I (the bride) have been trying to find a way to summarize how unbelievable our experience was with Crispin Hill in a nice, concise paragraph and I simply can't. So please bear with me as I sing their praises in an unorganized but heartfelt way.Sent on 10/05/2020
My husband and I were one of the "fortunate" ones who were getting married during the COVID-19 pandemic. Our original plan was to do a destination wedding weekend in SC and we had been planning the event for a year and a half when COVID hit. We decided in June, 4 months before the original date, to cancel our plans down south and instead get married closer to home (Rochester, NY). The same day we cancelled the wedding down south, we stumbled upon Crispin Hill and loved what we saw online so we gave them a call. Right away we were impressed: Chelsey answered immediately and within no time we had booked a new date at their venue, 3 months away.
Needless to say, we had a lot to do in very little time and Chelsey and Heather were beyond accommodating. They helped us reach out to vendors on their preferred vendor list to see who was available (and let me tell you, every vendor on that list that we hired was outstanding), they helped us find new vendors when businesses dropped out last minute, they helped us find a place for the after party AND rehearsal dinner, and the list goes on and on and on. Essentially, they guided us through the entire planning process and helped us get over every road block (and there were a lot of them). Little by little the wedding started to come together and it was all due to their organization, expertise, and patient communication. They made planning for a wedding during a pandemic as stress-free as it could be. They knew all the regulations (which changed constantly) and with what they have built at that property, they were able to execute all the mandated regulations while still making it functional and beautiful.
And man, was it beautiful. I will admit, I was very anxious about how everything would play out. I am somewhat of a control freak and as I said, we had spent a year and a half planning our original wedding and we only had three months to plan this one. We had to put complete trust in Chelsey and Heather and the community of vendors they had created and we are so glad we did. Our guests were blown away that Crispin Hill was our plan B. The venue was stunning, the food was incredible, the staff was so kind and fun, and it ran without a hitch. Countless people came up to us saying it was the best wedding they had been to and that it ran smoother than weddings they had attended that weren't during an ever-changing pandemic. What Chelsey and Heather have created at Crispin Hill is truly remarkable. The wedding they helped us build was better than what we were planning originally, for so many reasons, and if we had to do it again, pandemic or not, we would choose Crispin Hill time and time again. They gave us one of the best days of our lives during one of the worst times of our lives and we truly cannot thank them enough.
If you are considering Crispin Hill, please feel free to reach out--I recommend them without question.
Crispin Hill's reply:Erin & Curtis! Thank You, Thank You! Your words mean so much to us. This year was so difficult for so many couples, especially you both... trusting us and our venue after cancelling your other venue means a lot! You guys hold a very special place in our hearts! Cant wait to see the pics!!! Keep in Touch!

We Couldn't Have Picked a Better Venue
It is so hard to put into words how grateful we are for choosing Crispin Hill as our venue. Chelsey and Heather are absolutely AMAZING at what they do and are just overall good people in general.
When I first stumbled across this venue online, I knew I had to see it in person for myself--it almost looked too good to be true. It was the first venue I visited and after that, every other venue I couldn't help but compare it to Crispin. I grew up in the finger lakes region and I could not get enough of that lake view; it was simply breathtaking. When I booked my official wedding date to be held there on July 24, 2020, I was so excited and could not wait for the day to get here!!
However, just months before our special day, we were hit with covid. Like most people, there were so many uncertainties. Everything seemed to change on a day-to-day basis and as our wedding day began approaching, we feared for the day we had dreamt of for so long.
Despite everything that was going on, Chelsey and Heather worked with us and constantly kept us updated with everything that was going on and all the New York State guidelines. Chelsey is AMAZING at communicating and is super organized. Not only were they flexible and willing to work with us during this time, they were SUPER accommodating to ensure all our guests were safe and comfortable. They made sure we were still able to have our special day, while also making sure it was done in the right way--all in accordance with the NYS regulations.
In addition to that, Crispin gives out a list of recommended vendors. We went ahead and chose mostly people who worked closely alongside Crispin. This was SUPER helpful once covid hit because most of our vendors had open communication with Crispin and knew exactly what to expect, making it easier on us (And by the way, all the vendors they recommend are AMAZING).
On the actual day of the wedding, everything went as smooth as possible; this was thanks to Chelsey and all the amazing staff at Crispin. They are all experts when it comes to weddings and all the small details that no one else would think of. I would not have thought of all the little details if it weren't for Crispin!!
Also, the FOOD!!! Heather is in charge of all the food and is SO amazing!! We got SO many compliments from all our guests about how delicious it all was! She has mastered the timing of it all to ensure no one is waiting or hangry throughout the night! She is also really good at making sure any guest with special dietary needs is taken care of.
Overall, our day was truly so special. Being a covid bride has been so extremely stressful in so many ways. That being said, Crispin was the reason that we were still able to have our wedding, and have it even more beautiful than we could have ever dreamed. It would not have been possible without all the support and reassurance that Chelsey and Heather were able to give us. They truly are experts at what they do.
If you are considering having your wedding here, DO IT!!!! you won't regret it!!! :)

The most perfect venue in the Finger Lakes region
If you are looking for a beautiful venue in words that I would personally describe as romantic, and "modern rustic", Crispin Hill is the place to book. Not only is the venue absolutely breathtaking, you have an experienced and professional team behind it all. I'm telling you....Chelsey and Heather are your people! If my planning process was this smooth and this well guided by these two during a global PANDEMIC, I can't imagine what it's like in a "normal world"!
With Covid causing so much stress and tears, the ladies at Crispin truly made me feel at ease and were with me through every obstacle this virus threw at us. They followed all safety precautions and took the safety of their customers and staff very seriously, which was very well respected. I know that this business is their pride and joy as it truly shows. They will want you to be happy with everything, and will make sure of that! As a bride, you couldn't ask for anything more.
Everything about this venue is exquisite. Every little detail that Chelsey and Heather put into this place did not go unnoticed. I get comments from friends and family weekly on the amazing food, the view, the venue, really everything about it!
I chose almost all my vendors off of their recommended list, and each and every one was perfect. I felt so comfortable knowing my photographer, videographer, DJ, shuttle service, and more had experience with this venue many many times. This helped my planning run as seamless as it did. Their recommendations were wonderful and I didn't need to waste time researching hardly at all.
I almost forgot to mention the farmhouse that you have the opportunity to stay in the night before. This is an absolute MUST. Waking up the morning of the wedding with my bridal party at the venue made everything so easy for us. Not to mention it's the most beautiful home I've probably ever stay at, with a view you can't beat.
Choosing Crispin Hill as your venue will be the best decision you make. I promise.Sent on 09/22/2020
Crispin Hill's reply:Leah! Thank you so much for the kind words and review! We love you all!! Congratulations... you were so beautiful and your day was amazing!!!
