Great experience in a beautiful space!
This beautifully restored warehouse set in the Finger Lakes Region was perfect spot for our wedding. We absolutely loved having our reception at the Cracker Factory. We could not have asked for a more perfect space. We wanted somewhere that was simple and understated, that could be decorated but didn't need to be, where all of our guests could be in one space together, and that was architecturally intriguing. The Cracker Factory achieved all of this and more. We got so many compliments from guests as to the unique space that we had found and the back patio was an amazing addition! Maggie, Amy, & Brandon were so wonderful to work with and incredibly helpful. They worked well with all of our vendors and were extremely helpful and responsive at all points in the wedding planning process. We could not recommend The Cracker Factory will always hold a very special place in our hearts & we could not recommend it more!Sent on 12/04/2019

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!Sent on 11/01/2020

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!Sent on 11/05/2019
