    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!

    Absolutely perfect

    Everything was absolutely beautiful at our wedding. Maggie was a breeze to work with and answered my endless questions. Amy and Brandon were there the day of and were amazing! They were so flexible and willing to help. Our guests absolutely loved the space and couldn’t stop talking about it. They really made my dream come true. Also the bar was great, we didn’t include liquor in the open bar and they had so many beer, wine, cider and seltzer options that no one really cared.
