    Perfection

    I attended the wedding of a friend and this venue and I just HAD to come brag on Valerie and everyone over at Cross Creek Ranch. From start to finish everything was perfect from the guests point of view. Valerie was an absolute gem who constantly made sure everyone had what they needed, but never seemed over bearing. Trying to convince my sister in law to get married here next!!

    Cross Creek Ranch's reply:

    Thank you for leaving us such a nice review! We feel very lucky to have Valerie on our team and we will make sure to pass along the compliments to her. We would love to help your sister in law plan her special day! We hold tours seven days a week.

    A Real Happily Ever After

    Cross Creek was the only venue we visited. We knew immediately this was the place for my daughter and son in laws wedding. The beautiful grounds and all-inclusive experience sold us. Cross Creek Ranch truly does make dreams come true. Part of the magic is the people from the groundskeepers, security staff, Lindsay (Concierge), Margot and Lisa (Wedding Designers), sales staff, banquet staff, Brenda (House Mom), Gabriella (Cottage Mom), Valerie and Holly (Wedding Coordinators). All of Cross Creek carefully curated vendors.
    When my daughter and I had our first meeting with Valerie, we both knew immediately that we were in great hands. She made us feel comfortable and smoothly guided us through the meeting. She let us know that we could contact her at any time. She was extremely organized and well prepared. Valerie communicated with us often over the two weeks leading up to the wedding. She had wonderful ideas and was open to our requests, and was meticulous in implementation of them. Our entire Bridal Party and the officiant felt well prepared during the rehearsal. She provided us with drinks, and since it was so warm, she brought in handheld fans. Since we had our rehearsal dinner at The French Country Inn, we choose to spend the night and get ready there in the morning. I casually mentioned that I would be running out early on the wedding morning since I needed a higher-protein breakfast. She pulled in at 7:00 am with a homemade egg croissant breakfast for us. I certainly did not expect it. It was absolutely delicious. Her kindness towards my girls and me melted my heart. I knew this was going to be a great day. She took such great care of not only the Bride and Groom, Bridal Party, but special care with parents and other guests. Every single person that attended the wedding said that it was the best wedding that they ever attended. We all felt that it was due to Valerie's leadership, staff, and beautiful venue. Her service was impeccable. I can't thank everyone enough for their warm hospitality.
