The Crystal Plaza is incredible!
I was recently at the Crystal Plaza for a wedding and I can’t begin to express how impressed I was. From the staff to the food to the outdoor tent everything was above and beyond. I think I ate about 20 lamb chops and could have eaten more. Most importantly I want to mention that with everything going on in the world right now, the entire staff made me feel so safe. I was able to enjoy the wedding and not be scared or nervous which I think made that day extra special.Sent on 10/22/2020

We had visited about 5 venues and Crystal Plaza was the one we chose for a number of reasons, all of which were proven to be the correct instinct on our wedding day. When we sat down with the staff after the initial tour, we realized they were the ones that knew how to throw a wonderful party, and would be most apt to handle our needs and wants. In the months leading up to the wedding, the entire staff could not have been more supportive of us and our familiesSent on 02/23/2020
desires. They brainstormed ideas with and without us to make our day incredibly special. They accommodated our large guest list and worked with us to set up the ceremony and reception to fit our needs. While we were blown away by everything the venue itself had to offer, such as the excellent food our guests enjoyed, the staff on the day of the wedding could not have been more attentive. From the brides and grooms maitre d's, to the event coordinator, everyone made sure the wedding went off without a hitch, and ensured the entire family and guests were having a great time. There was no need to worry about anything going wrong that day, because we had complete trust in the staff. They worked all day long and through the late hours of the night to make sure our day was as incredible as imagined. We could not provide a stronger endorsement of the beauty of the venue, tasty food, or its staff. Our guests left thrilled and happily exhausted from celebrating with us. We can't wait to come back again!!!

Fantastic Day! Amazing Venue and Wonderful Staff
Moving forward with a COVID wedding was a difficult decision, but once we decided to do it, Max and the entire staff we worked with made sure that we did everything as safely as possible - according to all protocols of the state and CDC - while also maintaining a high level of comfort. They walked us through every inch of the day and everything went off without a hitch.Sent on 12/15/2020
We made the decision to hold our wedding outside the day-of and they were so flexible and accommodating. The staff was attentive and very friendly - and the food was excellent. I cannot say enough about how great everything was - it is clear that Crystal Plaza takes pride in what they do and they really worked hard to make our day amazing.
We also got to experience the venue after it had undergone a large renovation - the indoor ceremony space (although we didn't wind up using it) is beautiful with a lot of natural light, the ballroom is elegant, and and the Bridal Suite is truly incredible. I would recommend this venue - without hesitation - to anyone looking for a beautiful spot for an event.

Love this Venue, staff is on great and they are on point with everything they do. My personal favorite thing is the balcony to capture a group shot of all the guest at the dance floor!!!
