The Perfect Rustic Venue
Nancy was a dream to meet with - she made all my fears planning a wedding disappear. From the home style cooked meals (fireplace prime rib!), to the ceremony space, bridal suite, cocktail hour, to floral arrangements - everything you can need and more is offered at this venue. Salem Cross is the decor in itself, and I can't wait for it to be the perfect backdrop to our big day. They provide you with a list of vendors they work closely with, such as DJ, officiants, floral, hotels, etc. which has made the planning experience that much easier as well.Sent on 11/08/2019

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!
