    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!

    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!
