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.

Crossed Keys was the only venue we toured, and the only venue we needed to tour. From the first time we drove up to the property (which is a BEAUTIFUL area up in that part of New Jersey to start with), we knew it was exactly what we were looking for. We didn't want a traditional wedding hall - we wanted something relaxed, but elegant and I knew I wanted a tented wedding. Crossed Keys gives you all of this and so much more. The grounds are lush and stunning, and even historical. From pictures, I felt like other venues try to replicate the nice gardens, but it just ends up looking cheesy and fake. Crossed Keys is the real garden deal. We worked with Jessica and Katherine throughout the whole process; they were both so responsive, helpful, and I knew we could trust them in making the wedding of our dreams happen. We also loved the fact that this is a family run business!Sent on 10/30/2019
- Floral and decor is done through Jessica - making it such an easy process to coordinate and it all turned out absolutely beautiful. You meet with her to go over your ideas and I felt like she read my mind in what I was looking for.
- The food was absolutely the best wedding food I've had - we had the chilean sea bass which I highly recommend. We kept getting compliments about it all!
- Both Jessica and Katherine were onsite and kept checking on all of us in the wedding party to see how we were doing and even just offered us water while we took pictures! Very attentive and accommodating.
I could go on and on, but in summary, we have had so many people from family, friends of family, and our friends say that this was one of the best weddings (if not the best wedding) they've been to! If you want a fairytale wedding, this is your venue!

The most MAGICAL day!
I was introduced to Crossed Keys Estate a few years ago and I immediately fell in love with the magic of the grounds & gardens. When we were planning our wedding ceremony, we truly couldn't have imagined a more perfect location. Working with them was so easy... Jessica & Katherine were incredibly accommodating and open to our ideas. They helped us plan out the day & made suggestions to help our planning process go even smoother. On our wedding day, they were always nearby to help. It truly felt like being surrounded by family. They also created the most beautiful flower arrangements for us. With just a few photos for inspiration, they nailed my vision for the most perfect lavender wedding bouquet. From start to finish, we're forever grateful for the most perfect wedding day at Crossed Keys!Sent on 10/29/2019

Are you looking for a unique, magical outdoor space for your wedding? Then..this is the place to book! Crossed Keys Estate gave my couple lots of beautiful locations for picture perfect moments and made the day flow peacefully giving the couple a very private and intimate day. I cannot wait to photograph at this location again soon. liz
Fabulous venue for the country-chic, vintage loving bride!
