Where do I begin?! Long story short, Jessica, Katherine, and the entire Crossed Keys team are true wedding experts!Sent on 01/02/2018
We waited two years to have our dream fall wedding, and every moment of our wedding day was worth the wait. From the moment we first stepped foot on The Estate’s grounds, we knew this was where we would be married…we didn’t even look at other venues! The grounds are absolutely breathtaking. From the towering oak trees, to the meticulously manicured lawns, every corner of Crossed Keys is beautiful. The tent is an absolute stunner (and won the approval of my very critical 93-year-old grandmother)! What we loved most about having a tented wedding was the ability to truly create an aesthetic that was our own. It was a blank canvas with which Jessica and Katherine used to create a beautiful celebration of our marriage. Throughout the entire planning process, Jessica was there to answer all of our questions, no matter how silly or seemingly insignificant, ultimately putting our minds at ease and allowing us to focus on preparing for marriage. The day of our wedding she was there, making sure every detail was perfect - I’m convinced she even had something to do with the impeccable weather and the fairy tale Autumn leaves raining down around us during the ceremony. A huge highlight for us was being able to have our rehearsal dinner at Crossed Keys Inn, just a minute’s drive down the road. Knowing that the Crossed Keys family was in charge of our wedding weekend was so reassuring. 3 months after our wedding and our family and friends are STILL raving about it! I have to admit, I am constantly trying to find an excuse to make my way back to Crossed Keys to experience its magic once again! Thank you Jessica, Katherine, Celso and EVERYONE at Crossed Keys.

Best day of our lives!
My husband and I got married at Crossed Keys in early August. The entire experience, from planning decor, the wedding kick off/food tasting, to the actual wedding day, was absolutely amazing! To top everything off - our guests said our food (cocktail hour and dinner/dessert) was some of the best they've ever had!Sent on 08/22/2019
Jessica and Katherine - thank you so much for making our wedding one to remember.

If it were possible to deliver more than 5 stars to Crossed Keys Estate, I would do it without hesitation. The moment I stepped foot onto their grounds, I knew it was the place for me. I've always pictured myself getting married in my backyard and man oh man, did this completely surpass my expectations. I tip my hat to the ENTIRE team at Crossed Keys. Every email was delivered with a prompt and incredibly helpful response from either Jessica or Katherine. I am not a planner or a DIY-er so having Jessica and her team to help out with all the decor and flowers was absolutely perfect. Her and her team know the industry inside and out and deliver with top notch quality. With her expertise and sharp eye, I knew I was in the right hands. The flowers were gorgeous and I am still getting compliments from my guests on the ambiance - it fully exceeded my expectations. Not only that, but Katherine and the family made me and MY family feel like we were home. Their attention to detail and commitment to service is something that I continue to be impressed with. I am so excited about their new Farmhouse addition - my Mom wished we waited a bit longer so we could have the reception there but I fell in love with the beautiful white tent. I wish I could get married over and over again, just to continue to work with them and experience their talent! They gave me and my new hubby the wedding of our dreamsSent on 06/12/2019
