About Crystal Cove

Crystal Cove is a waterfront wedding venue in the Albany, New York area. This vintage barn’s nature-filled location provides couples a romantic escape on their wedding day.

    Everything was amazing! Crystal cove is a beautiful location by the water. The owners and all employees were very attentive and accommodating. The food was DELICIOUS and the carving stations were a big hit with my guests. I also loved the openness of the reception building and the wrap around deck. We highly recommend crystal cove!

    My husband and I fell in love with this venue the moment we saw it. Frank and Ruth were warm and welcoming. We wanted an outdoor venue but wanted the convienence of everything included which Crystal Cove offered. Frank and Ruth were great to work with. Our wedding day was everything we wanted. There was a small miscommunication about what time the reception ended but was resolved quickly and Frank and Ruth were gracious enough to let the party go on later than they planned. My guests raved about the food and good time was had by all. Thank you Frank and Ruth!
