    So beautiful!

    We loved having our wedding at the Crosley! It was so beautiful and such an exquisite place to host our big day! The communication leading up to our big day was awesome and we felt that they were very clear and willing to work with us to make our day all that it was! I would 100% recommend any couple to get married here!

    This is an INCREDIBLE venue. We loved planning our wedding here from the very beginning. The event rep that they assign to you is so on top of it, very helpful, and was extremely responsive to all of our questions. The best part was the alcohol bill. We had heard negative things and we were pretty worried because we have a mixed group of light and heavy drinkers, but we only went $4 over our deposit of $20 per person. The bartenders went above and beyond to treat our guests well and made sure they were very happy the whole time and had the exact drink in their hand that they wanted. Highly recommend this venue
