From the first time I stepped foot in CRW I knew I wanted to have my wedding there ( I wasn't quite yet engaged)! After my husband and I did get engaged and reserved CRW, the event coordinator, Chlesey, has been nothing but helpful. I could email questions and she was fast to respond, she was very helpful with setting up all the details and making sure I had everything lined up for our big day. When our wedding day arrived, all of the staff were more than helpful, very organized & made our day perfect!! When I arrived in the morning the day of the wedding the Great Hall was already all set up for us! The CRW is very organized and knows what they are doing to ensure your wedding day is grand! We had an outdoor ceremony and about a half hour before the ceremony was to start, storm clouds rolled in. The staff, including Chelsey, made sure all our guests were seated in their seats and that we started on time! Good thing, because about 5 minutes after our ceremony ended, it poured!!Sent on 10/08/2014
We heard from many of our guests at the reception and since how fantastic and beautiful they thought the Winery was. The Great Hall is very spacious - we had about 175 guests and the tables weren't on top of one another. You could easily move between them to talk to other guests. The dance floor is very large and accommodates a large group of people dancing!
At first, we thought the price was pretty steep but considering what it all includes it is very reasonable. I have nothing but good (no great) things to say about Crow River Winery and their staff!!! I will forever remember my wedding ceremony and reception here!!! I highly suggest to consider them but do it fast as it is a very popular place!!!!
Thanks again CRW!!!!!
