    Perfect, the best wedding we could have imagine and according to most of our guests the best wedding they had ever been too

    When my husband and I got engaged we immediately began looking at venues. Old Daley Inn on Crooked Lake was the first place we went. We absolutely loved it. It was beautiful, classy, classic and rustic at the same time. We couldn’t have found our venue on the first try right? So, we visited 10 other venues! Every time we went to a new place, we kept just saying “but it’s not like Crooked Lake”. Finally after a marathon day of looking at 4 venues in a row, we pulled the trigger so to speak and booked Crooked Lake. We could not have made a better choice or decision. There is literally nothing bad or even sub par I can say about the venue and staff. We planned most of our wedding during the worst parts of the pandemic and we stressed over constant changing regulations. Crooked Lake was on top of everything. Our wedding coordinator Kate Mace was a true MVP! She knew whenever any change happened and she made every idea and dream become a reality! We were able to find the right package for our needs and then add À la carte for any specifics we wanted to make things right for us. The day before the wedding we did a rehearsal and Kate was there to help me run through everything! I can’t tell you how helpful that was. I have been in several weddings where the rehearsal fell completely to the bride and it was a mess and was confusing. Kate helped me so much and I felt so little stress in terms of making everything happen. Finally the big day came and on October 9 we got married!! Kate Mace along with my mom actually helped me into my wedding dress. I wanted to do a first look with my bridal party to take back a moment that was stolen by the pandemic and they made it happen! The staff was perfect and took care of everyone’s needs. The day was seamless. Our ceremony was on the grounds outside and couldn’t have gone more perfect! When people arrived they were treated with hot apple cider spiked and regular and a cider donut. After the ceremony we were greeted with champagne and the guests headed to the oak room for the cocktail hour. Everyone told us that our wedding had the best passed hors d’oeuvres they had ever had at a wedding!! For the reception we had an amazing time!! We had a large wedding party and really wanted to sit with everyone and not alone. Kate came up with a curved Tuscan table so we could sit with everyone, see everyone and still have the band on the stage like I wanted. The food was amazing and all of our guest loved it. Every tradition and event we wanted to happen went off without a hitch and everything we didn’t want, didn’t happen. At the end of the night we wanted to surprise our guest and again Kate helped us do this. She got everyone outside by the ceremony spot and helped them light sparklers. Our guests thought his was our big send off, but, they couldn’t have guessed that as soon as we ran though the line of sparklers, foreword started!! Our guests were so surprised and loved every moment!! What can I say, we ended with a bang!!! After the wedding I am not exaggerating when I say the the most common comments we received from our guest were “that was the best wedding I have ever been to!” And “it was perfect” Thank you so much for everything!!! ❤️

    Amazing Wedding Experience

    We had our wedding this July at Old Daley. From the beginning the staff was incredible and very responsive. Our wedding planner, Sarah, was truly amazing. The venue itself is beautiful as is the location. They worked with us to create some unique menu options and were very accommodating for guests with allergies. The food served at our wedding exceeded expectations. We got so many compliments on the food and how amazing the staff was to our guests. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. They have a beautiful Bridal Suite and Grooms room that made getting ready feel even more special. We would highly recommend Old Daley for any special events but especially weddings!

    Amazing venue for 2 weddings

    I can't say enough positive things about Old Daley and their staff. We started planning our wedding December 2019 for our December 2020 wedding. When Covid hit Kate and the staff were amazing about helping to guide us in adjusting our wedding plans. We were lucky enough to have 2 amazing weddings at Crooked Lake, the first on NYE 2020 with just our family and closest friends and then our big celebration on July 2nd. I can't recommend Old Daley at Crooked Lake enough!!
