We had been planning our wedding for well over a year. The big thing was to make sure we had the venue of our dreams. The Powel Crosely Estate did that and then some. Not only did the venue stick out because of how beautiful it was, the staff was extremely understanding, transparent, and helpful they were through the process. Anytime we had a question, they were always right there either with an answer or at least letting us know that he was looking into it and would get back to us as soon as possible. When it came to the day of the event the venue was absolutely perfect the staff was extremely helpful and almost all of the guests commented on how perfect the night was and how beautiful the venue was all set up. The staff of the Powel really helped make our day absolutely perfect so the we didn't have to worry about a thing. Words really can't do justice for the service that they provided but we thank youSent on 02/24/2019

Everything we could dream of and more!
From the moment we walked in to the Crosley, we knew it was the venue we had dreamed of! It provided us with everything we wanted and more. We had our ceremony on the Loggia and the reception dinner on the lawn and everything was absolutely perfect. While the Crosley can’t control the weather, we had a gorgeous Floria evening and the Crosley looks unreal with a beautiful sunset as the backdrop. Our contact, Samantha, was fantastic to work with and very responsive. In short, The Crosley was the venue of our dreams and staff were all extremely easy to work with and accommodating to make our day so special.Sent on 11/04/2018
