I don’t know if there are enough words to show our appreciation for Derek and Jody at Crooked Willow. They were so unbelievably helpful and would jump in to help with anything we needed throughout the planning process. If we had questions, they were always quick to come up with an answer for us. The venue was absolutely beautiful and we had numerous comments from our wedding guests about how gorgeous the venue was. It was truly perfect for our wedding day. Oh, and Derek even took my little flower girl along to help him feed the fish while we were getting ready. We would recommend Crooked Willow to anyone planning their wedding! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!Sent on 07/04/2019

Our wedding weekend was all we could have hoped for thanks to Derek & Jody and the Crooked Willow venue. The best part about the grounds and building (other than being BEAUTIFUL) is that you never have to leave! You get your full time and moneys worth by getting all the amenities including a honeymoon suite right on site!Sent on 07/07/2019

Derek and Jody were amazing throughout our whole wedding process and wedding day! They really did go above and beyond everything we could have asked for. We had to cancel our previous wedding due to an emergent medical issue and our previous venue had no compassion so we looked for a different venue for planning our second wedding. I found Crooked Willow on Facebook and we decided right away to go tour there - We both fell in LOVE with the venue. They were super understanding of our situation and were able to help us figure out a game plan. Communication was amazing and they were always there to answer questions throughout the way. As the wedding day approached they were there to make sure things were running smoothly.Sent on 06/10/2019
Our wedding day was nothing short of amazing. They were there to make sure all our questions were answered and were the best of help. The bridal suite and groom suite were amazing to get ready in and hangout before. There are plenty of beautiful photo opportunities here as well! We still have guests raving about how perfect the day was and how beautiful of a venue we picked! We would recommend Crooked Willow 1000000%! Thanks for helping create our perfect day!
