LOVE this venue!!

My husband and I just got married at Powel Crosley at the end of April and it was perfect! Our guests still can't stop raving at how beautiful of a venue it really is. We worked with JoAnna and Olivia throughout our wedding planning process and they were easy to work with and friendly. We love Powel Crosley and are so glad that this is where we got married!
