Our day was absolutely magical!
We cannot even begin to express how incredible our experience was with Crooked Willow. Crooked Willow was the first venue we looked at after we were engaged and we fell in love instantly. We knew this was the place we were getting married! Crooked Willow really is the most beautiful venue, from the bridal suites, gorgeous outdoor ceremony area, breathtaking event center, and spectacular honeymoon suite for convenient stay on site. Derek & Jody are amazing to work with. We had such an easy time planning because they were always so responsive and ready to help. Derek & Jody helped make our dreams come true. They really did go above and beyond to make sure we had the best day ever. Our guests raved about the venue with so many compliments and our vendors were so thrilled to be working with Crooked Willow. We would highly recommend celebrating any event at Crooked Willow. Each way you turn is breathtaking and the staff have been a joy to work with! Thank you again Crooked Willow! Our day was absolutely magical. We loved every minute!Sent on 10/08/2019

Dream day with a dreamy venue
Derek and Jodi have created such a unique and beautiful venue. We had our wedding there in August and they were fantastic to work with! I had zero worries that day and any hiccup that came up, they were there to take care of. We had so many complements on the site and how perfect it was. Another plus was there were so many different buildings, including a grooms suite. Our favorite place was the hidden bar in the barn for the wedding party - it was great to have time with our crew while not having to travel away from the ceremony or reception. I 100% recommended this venue to anyone looking at celebrating their big day here!Sent on 10/20/2019

Beautiful rustic venue
This place is beautiful. We had our groom's dinner in the barn the night before, and reception in the main building. We had 260 guests with plenty of room to spare without it looking empty. The inside of the reception building barely needs decorating with its rustic charm (money saver!) We were very happy with our venue choice!Sent on 10/12/2019
