Crystal Bridges was an extremely beautiful venue!! The guests were blown away. The people in charge of scheduling and organizing the wedding were a bit difficult to work with. They were VERY unorganized and didn't get serious about anything until 2 weeks out. This made me, my mom, and wedding planner a bit stressed out. They did pull a lot of of strings for us, but at a price, it is the most expensive venue in NWA. But at the end of the day the wedding was perfect and absolutely beautiful.Sent on 07/25/2013
