    There isn't a better word to describe this place than perfect. Nancy and Donna make this experience easy and stress free and are very accommodating. I planned my sister perfect day for over a year since she lived in California and I was out here. Every bump in the road, Nancy or Donna was there to reassure me everything was going to be perfect.
    On the morning of the wedding. The skies were completely clear, the sun was out, the cattle were out. Everything was completely perfect. While the bride was getting ready in the beautiful bridal room, I was downstairs being the bridezilla making sure everything was in place. Nancy was so awesome and let me do whatever I needed to. I didn't need to do much, Nancy had everything under control. The ceremony was perfect. Paula Roberts was awesome with the coordination of the ceremony. At the reception the outdoor bar and happy hour was outstanding. Completely outstanding. The reception exceeded my standards. Martha was in charge of our reception. I was told by guests it was the first wedding they had someone come over and ask how everything was and how impressed they were with that. The food was incredible. Definitely the best food I've ever had at a wedding. I highly recommend having your wedding here if you are looking. Everything about this venue is perfect and beautiful. The staff and owners are so nice and helpful. Thank you Nancy, Donna and Martha and the entire Salem Cross Inn staff for a perfect day!

    Could not be more perfect

    In Brief: From start to finish, food to venue, The Salem Cross Inn made our wedding absolutely perfect and affordable. They were so professional, communicative and supportive throughout the entire process; we would highly, highly recommend them for any wedding.
    In Detail: My husband and I were having a Western (cowboy) themed wedding (line dance instruction and all) in the fall and were seeking a venue with a barn that served excellent food. We were fortunate enough to have stumbled upon The Salem Cross Inn through a friend’s recommendation and once we saw the pictures online and the wedding menus, we knew we had to check out the place. We were particularly excited about their prime rib as an option for our wedding guests as it is roasted in an antique fire pit.
    From day one, we were highly impressed with Nancy’s organization, efficiency and honesty. She explained all of the options clearly, showed us each part of Salem Cross and what they offered, explained the menus, and gave us a pricing quote based on our expected number of guests (approx. 130 guests). Donna, their gifted baker, was also able to meet our needs for a custom cake (Grand Marnier-laced cake with chocolate ganache). Despite all these custom offerings, when we saw the cost estimate we were shocked….at how affordable it was for such a lovely venue and for all of the choices we had available for our menu.
    From the time we confirmed our wedding spot, throughout the next 18 months, both Nancy and Donna were very communicative and helpful. Both were attentive to phone calls and emails. Donna even baked us a sample of our cake for us to try (which was so good words could not describe it). We had no surprises at all throughout the process and found both Nancy and Donna exceptionally easy to work with. Nancy suggested many options that helped smooth out the execution of the wedding, especially the day of, which alleviated a lot of the stresses leading up to a wedding (Listen to Nancy – she knows what she’s doing!) The venue had all of the available hookups needed for us to have our ceremony outside with a DJ and videographer, and to have our reception nestled wonderfully inside the rustic barn.
    The day of, The Salem Cross could not possibly have been more professional and attentive to our and our guests’ needs. We even had a member of their staff dedicated to our wedding in case we needed anything. Our goal was for the food and cake to be the stars of the show, so we put the bulk of our budget to that. The Salem Cross did not disappoint – our guests (and us) raved about how good the food was – appetizers, main meals, and even the bread. Many also raved that our custom wedding cake was the best wedding cake they ever had (many of our friends are foodies, so to hear those kinds of compliments meant a lot to us as that was what we were trying to achieve). Our guests (and we) also raved and how well their staff decorated the barn and tables with the decorations we brought to the venue. To further highlight Nancy’s and Donna’s dedication and professionalism, both came back to check on us during our wedding on a Sunday evening.
    My husband and I are very particular and picky people. With that in mind, we both firmly believe that our wedding at The Salem Cross Inn was nothing short than perfect. We talked about our wedding for weeks afterwards, still marveling at how humbling the entire event was. We will still be talking about it for years to come. The Salem Cross was the backbone for this unforgettable experience. We cannot thank them enough for the experience they helped us create, and for the memories that will last a lifetime.
