Incredible Venue, Friendly Owners
We chose Crooked Willow for both our rehearsal dinner and wedding reception, and we had the best day! Each building is so beautiful and unique - it's truly breathtaking! We got ready here in their bridal/groom suites, and got such incredible photos both indoor and out. The event center is very spacious (we had over 300 people seated comfortably) and we got many compliments on the reception. Derek and Jody were great to work with both our families as well as with our other vendors. They were always quick to respond to any questions we had and were so helpful during the planning process. The week and day of wedding they were very flexible with us, and we appreciated them going the extra mile and jumping in to help out to make things go smoothly. Overall, we are so happy we made the choice to book with Crooked Willow, and we highly recommend this amazing venue!Sent on 02/19/2019

Excellent to work with and beautiful venue!
Derek and Jody were very accommodating in working with us to make our wedding day special. Our wedding took place in the winter, and Derek spent many hours moving snow and making sure things ran smoothly for our guests the day of the wedding. Prior to the wedding day, Derek and Jody made communication easy and answered any questions that we had throughout planning. Derek, Jody, and their family have created a venue that is beautiful, full of character, and it was the perfect place to host our guests to celebrate our marriage. I could tell from the first time I met Derek and Jody that they were passionate about their business and cared about helping us make our wedding day special. They truly care about others and went above and beyond for my husband and I while planning a day that we will never forget. I would highly recommend Crooked Willow for any event!Sent on 03/13/2019

We could not have asked for a more perfect day at Crooked Willow! Derek and Jody took the time to answer any and all questions we had and were available throughout the day. Having access to the bridal suite, trappers lodge, and the barn gave us a space to be comfortable in before our ceremony and reception.. and not to mention how BEAUTIFUL the event center is!! Derek and Jody have put in a great amount of effort to make this wedding venue amazing. I highly recommend Crooked Willow to help make your wedding day extra special!Sent on 08/06/2018
