    “I’m a really big wheel down at The Cracker Factory”

    What can I say, we love The Cracker Factory. Maggie was incredible to work with, and generally an awesome person who we got along with. Their team was top notch and were supportive of our ideas, while maintaining the integrity of their space. Indian weddings can be pretty intense and they handled it with ease. The owners, Amy and Brandon made themselves available days leading up and after the event. They clearly put a lot of thought and effort into the space. As someone with 10+ years of music event experience, these folks are pros and our day went off like clockwork.

    10/10 highly recommend

    This venue is absolutely breathtaking. Maggie & Amy are extremely helpful, flexible, attentive and caring. Maggie cared about every single detail big or small just as much as my husband and I did. The guests had an amazing time and if I had to do it all over again, I wouldn’t change a thing!!!

    The Venue of our Dreams

    This place was the most magical place. It originally was not even on our place to look at for venues, but after we looked at a few and didn’t love them, we saw someone else that reviewed The Cracker Factory and figured we would check it out. The moment we walked in we felt it in our bones that this was going to be the place that we were going to get married. The lights, the windows, the floors, the accents, all of it was our vibe and so perfect. We did our ceremony and our reception here and it was amazing. We worked with Maggie the most during our planning and she was so helpful, down to earth and so prompt with answering every single question we had. The whole team here was amazing to work with and we are so so so glad that we picked them for our wedding venue. I also go into more detail about their incredible staff in our review of our coordinator, so keep reading!!!
