Gorgeous Venue

Derek and Jody were so wonderful to work with! They had constant communication to make sure everything went smooth along the way and made sure everything went smooth with the vendors as well. The venue was well kept and gorgeous! They even have recommendations of vendors to use on their website which is a plus because if you go with their recommendations those vendors know the property and know what to do so it helps that there are no questions with your vendor on what to do and where to set up. I highly recommend booking your wedding here you won鈥檛 regret it!

Amazing Venue!!

Your search for the perfect wedding venue in the Minnesota lakes area is over!! Crooked Willow is such a unique, rustic and beautiful venue that we鈥檝e gotten continual comments on well after our wedding on!! Derek and Jody were also fantastic to work with! Very responsive to all the emails I sent with questions! The day of our wedding, the weather didn鈥檛 quite cooperate and it had rained. Derek came to my bridal suite at 9 am, explained what he could do in the time left before the ceremony. We were so appreciative that he was able to move the ceremony indoors the morning of our big day! We got amazing comments from guests that people almost liked it inside at their dinner tables better, since they could see the ceremony better. The best part about Crooked Willow is you can have all our wedding festivities all in one place!! I could go on and on but bottom line is Crooked Willow and Jody and Derek are absolutely amazing!!
