Would chose them time and time again

I do not know where to start complimenting Crossed Keys. Absolutely everything was perfect not just the day of the wedding but everything leading up to it. Planning with Crossed Keys was every bride's dream. I barely had to think about anything and they were communicative, accommodating and extremely dependable. The venue is magical, I had multiple guests saying it felt like a Disney wedding from the setting and that it was the best wedding they have ever been to. The food was amazing, no one could get enough. We are three months later and my guests are still talking about it and asking about specific dishes from cocktail hour so they could try and recreate it. The service staff was so incredibly kind and our sweetheart table constantly had food and drinks on it. The getting ready space is a makeup artists dream and we couldn't stop finding new spots to take pictures in. I mean everything was perfect, moved like clockwork and stress free. To say this team is professional would be the understatement of the century, they. are. magical. I can't say thank you enough or praise them enough, do yourself a favor and have your wedding here - you won't regret it!

The best venue & team for nj weddings

There are not enough words to describe our unforgettable experience at Crossed Keys Estate. I wish I could give their team more than 5 stars! When we started our wedding planning process a few years back I was feeling discouraged. My now husband and I knew we wanted our wedding to be local, but I had a specific vision in mind that I felt would be hard to find in NJ. Most NJ venues had the same ballroom vibe that I was not going for. I wanted a space that if the weather was bad and we had to move our reception inside, I would not be upset. I also wanted to be able to customize a space without clashing with the venue's d茅cor. INSERT CROSSED KEYS ESTATE! As soon as I pulled up to the property for our tour I knew I had to book this venue. Floor to ceiling windows, property that feels like you're in a fairytale, hardwood floors (YES, most venues in NJ have carpet that typically has an outdated design that I felt would clash with my aesthetic), and the most incredible glass conservatory that I did not even know their team was building at the time. I was so lucky that there was 1 free Saturday left for a 2023 October wedding (dreamt of an outdoor Autumn wedding since I was a little girl). From the day we booked Crossed Keys to the days following our wedding the service has been impeccable. Planning a wedding can be extremely stressful, but working with the Crossed Keys team was the best part. They made planning so seamless! I have to give a special shout out to their floral team for making my untraditional wedding visions come to life. When I saw the space for the first time on our wedding day I was fighting back tears. The attention to detail was ON POINT. The amount of effort their team put in to making my Pinterest dreams come to life made our day even that more special. I am forever thankful and grateful to have had the pleasure of working with the Crossed Keys team and to have been able to share this special place with family and friends on our wedding day. The day after our wedding we were inundated with messages from our guests expressing how this was the best wedding they've been to. From the jaw dropping space/property, friendly & white glove staff/service, to the farm to table food and drinks (which to be honest is not always the best at weddings) everything exceeded expectations of what I thought our wedding day would be like. I wish we could do it all over again!
So to all the future brides who are considering Crossed Keys Estate, DO IT. You will not regret booking their team for one of the most special days of your life!!!!

Best.venue.ever!!!!!!

Where do I even begin!???! Crossed keys deserves way more than just 5 stars. From the incredible staff, to the amazing food, to the onsite florist who absolutely kills it every single time, to the gorgeous venue and new cocktail hour space, this place has it all. Although it was out of our budget, I knew CKE was our dream venue from the moment I met Katherine and toured their venue. Katherine, Jessica, Kyle, Samantha, Kiersten and the rest of their team made my husband and I feel like family. They were so helpful throughout the entire planning process and always so quick to answer any questions (and yes there were a lot. I probably emailed them everday) (I'm so sorry guys). Being out of state, I wasn't familiar with the venue before we booked and neither were any of our guests so I wasn鈥檛 sure what to expect, but I am SO glad that we put our trust in them. As soon as we booked, they sent us a list of recommended vendors and never left us hanging. We stayed in touch the whole time; talking multiple times a week for the year and a half leading up to our event. We had the best day of our lives, and not a thing went wrong! Our guests raved about the food (how much food their was and how delicious it was) and how much fun they had. I received so many compliments on my flowers. Jessica really delivered after me not really knowing what I wanted during our two hour floral appointment. I was all over the place but she made my vision come to life and surpassed all of my floral dreams. She also surprised us with window candles the day of our wedding which was the best and sweetest surprise ever during our room reveal. I couldn鈥檛 believe she did that! The whole team is so thoughtful. Our day of coordinator and maitred, Kiersten, I feel like needs a whole separate review of her own! She was absolutely fabulous! I don鈥檛 know what I would have done without her. I didn鈥檛 have a wedding planner so she was my go to person throughout the last couple of months of planning and boy did I make her WORK 馃槀 she was so helpful and so patient with me! The whole team at crossed keys estate made us feel so special and checked on our so many times throughout the night (bringing us a ton of food and drinks and making sure that we ate). I literally told them I wanted to work for them and be a part of their family because how much I loved them! Our day couldn鈥檛 have gone any better! It was perfect! If crossed keys is on your list of venues, just book them and thank me later! Thank you Katherine and crossed keys for making all of our (my) wedding dreams come true!!!!!!

Xoxo,
Brielle & Tyler
