    The Best Day of Our Lives

    Having our wedding at the Cracker Factory on 10/24/2020 was one of the best decisions of our entire planning process for our wedding. Maggie was incredible from the very beginning. Before the global pandemic hit, she was extremely helpful in the planning process. During the pandemic and several changes from NY regulations and rules, Maggie stayed up to date with the current regulations and was extremely helpful throughout the process. She helped to ensure our guests were safe and following the rules, while having an incredible time. In addition, we did our first look there and I cannot wait to see the gorgeous pictures!
    Maggie was super organized and helpful throughout the process. She responded to emails within a timely manner and ensured everything went perfectly. Family and friends told us how hospitable she was. The drinks were also AMAZING. Our photographers raved about the venue. Everyone had a wonderful day. Thanks to Maggie, Brandon, and Amy for making our 50 person wedding one to remember forever! I would recommend the Cracker Factory in a heartbeat!

    The Most Fun Venue Staff!

    This is hands down one of the best wedding venues out there. I will never be able to list out all the reasons why this is true, but I can share a few. We discovered it by attending a concert there! There is no limit to what you can do with the space. We had both ceremony and reception at the Cracker Factory. Maggie was amazing to work with via email during the months leading up to the wedding. She answered our questions in a professional and timely manner, and was always flexible with our requests! It made planning this giant event a breeze. The wedding day went exactly as I imagined, if not better. I knew I didn't need to worry about a thing. The venue itself is so beautiful it hardly needed any decorating. Ever photo comes out beautiful in this place. Amy and Brandon and Maggie did a fantastic job keeping our guests comfortable and running an amazing bar. We have not stopped receiving compliments on the venue and the staff from our guests! They took care of any problem that arose, and I didn't hear of any drama until the next day. My husband and I look forward to attending future concerts, and Official Unofficial Sunday's, and just getting to hang out with Maggie, Amy and Brandon! Thank you and love you guys!
