    Best night ever

    Had my wedding this past weekend. I cannot say enough great things about them. Planning was easy, thank you Val and Erica! Our day of coordinator, Barb, was fantastic. Terri was just wonderful and so helpful during dinner and cake cutting. Colleen, our bartender, did an amazing job all night. The food was phenomenal! Thank you to all the staff who helped make our night magical. It was perfect in every way!

    Book Crystal Gardens for your next event!

    Crystal Gardens was absolutely amazing from start to finish with our wedding day! We unfortunately were one of the couples that had to push their wedding day back due to COVID-19, but everyone at Crystal Gardens was so helpful and accommodating with our situation! We worked with Valerie for getting all of the details set for the day of and she was always very quick, responsive, and so helpful with all of our questions. On the day of the wedding, the entire staff (head captain, wait staff, bartenders, chef, etc.) was so kind and made sure that everything ran so smoothly without us or any of our guests having to worry about anything. I would definitely recommend Crystal Gardens to anyone who is looking to have an event!
