The Perfect Rustic Venue
Nancy was a dream to meet with - she made all my fears planning a wedding disappear when my fiancé (now husband) and I began planning our wedding October 2019. From the home style cooked meals (fireplace prime rib!), to the ceremony space, bridal suite, cocktail hour, to wedding cakes - everything you can need and more is offered at this venue. Salem Cross is the decor in itself, and it truly was 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. Once quarantine hit, my husband and I spoke with Nancy about what we should do. She assured us she was going to accommodate and support us in whatever decision we made. She truly was the most understanding individual - it made us that much happier we chose this venue from the start. We were able to still have a small intimate ceremony this past Halloween with our immediate family members because the date meant so much to us. On the day of, Nancy and Donna went above and beyond making sure we had everything we needed and have been so accommodating despite the craziness of COVID. We can’t wait until this September when we can have the rest of our friends and family join us for the awaited reception. Can’t imagine having our wedding anywhere else other than Salem. HIGHLY recommend!!!

Better than could have ever imagined
What a stress free and very accommodating venue Salem Cross Inn is. Donna and Nancy were able to answer all our questions and meet all of our needs while keeping our minds at ease and the safety of our guest in the forefront during a global pandemic. The food is always amazing and the wait staff are the nicest around. We had the ceremony outside at the gazebo with the beautiful fall foliage in the background. Following the ceremony was a wonderful sit down meal in their immaculate 2 floor barn. Our guests gave multiple compliments at how attentive and professional the staff were. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a wedding venue to remember.Sent on 10/25/2020
