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!!!

The Crystal Plaza became a family venue to us. Max and his team welcomed us with open arms and made our wedding vision come to life. We got married this past June and our friends and family are still talking about the cocktail hour. Leslie the Bridal attendant makes you feel like a princess! Before you can even ask her what you need she already does it for you. She must have bustled my dress and retouched my lipstick so many times. The best advice she have my husband and I were to sit in our bridal suite and just have a moment to ourselves and Eat! Thank God we did! Max is an amazing manager! He really made this Wedding a dream come true for us. We can’t complain about one thing. Anything we were concerned with or questioned he was there to help 100%. And let’s not forget about Nella! She made our Italian confetti candy station look just like the one from Italy, and made the cheese and pasta station just like we wanted! She was an amazing asset to our party! Crystal Plaza we love you! Looking forward to future weddings and parties there!Sent on 08/07/2018

The most incredible venue
We just got married here last week and want to take this opportunity to tell all future brides/grooms or anyone who wants to have an event here to just DO IT! The staff at Crystal Plaza made our wedding day beyond wonderful!! It was simply perfect. The staff is amazing and Allan (the owner) blew us away. Our Maitre'd, Mikheil was wonderful as well. He coordinated everything and made the night run SO smooth! There was not one hiccup on our night. We were thoroughly impressed with everything! Especially the personalized and courteous attention given to us and every detail of the night. All the staff played significant roles in creating such a flawless night. Words cannot express how grateful we are for such wonderful service, and the incredible night you created. All of our guests raved about the food and facilities and have expressed how impressed they were with the Crystal Plaza! the food is AMAZING!! From cocktail hour, to dinner, to dessert- everything was flawless! We want to thank everyone at the Crystal Plaza again for all that they have done to make our wedding the most perfect, and best night of our lives!Sent on 01/28/2020
