    We had a beautiful wedding at Crystal Gardens!

    My husband and I had our ceremony and reception at Crystal Gardens this past Friday. I cannot put into words how perfect our day was! The staff here is incredible. From our first meeting with Valerie, we knew we had found our venue. She is so knowledgeable, punctual, and attentive to every email, question, or concern. She really put my concerns at ease!

    The day of our wedding, Barbara was our ceremony coordinator. She was fantastic. She greeted us at the door and explained everything that was going to happen. She pinned boutonnières, set up sand ceremony tables, had a box of goodies in case anyone needed some hairspray or adjustment. She even ended up making a boutonnière out of what we had because we ended up with one short! She was even there at the end of the night to say everything was all set.

    Evan was our reception coordinator. He introduced himself during cocktail hour and said if we had any questions or concerns to let him know. Well, we ended up needing to push up our entrance into the reception room a bit early because pictures went faster than we had anticipated. He was more than accommodating and explained exactly how it would work. He even went over everything with our DJ so I wouldn’t have to stress about making a last minute change.

    Gina was our bartender. She was a pro. She handled my guests with such an incredible demeanor! She was funny and super efficient. Every time I came near the bar, she had my drink ready to go without me having to ask! I must admit, I thought this was because I was a groom but apparently she did that with several of our main guests!! Closer to the end of the night, I asked her to find someone to box up some of the cake because I hadn’t had any at that point (I love wedding cake!). She did exactly that and as we were leaving at the end of the night I was handed a huge box of delicious cake!!

    Our guests have flooded us with text messages, phone calls, and emails about how wonderful the venue was. They complimented to opulence of the rooms, the top notch staff, and the incredible food. We did family style and everyone had a great experience during dinner. The food was hot, delicious, and beautifully presented.

    I cannot say enough good things about Crystal Gardens. Everyone knows exactly how to throw an incredible wedding or event.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you for making our day the wedding we’ve always imagined!!
