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.Sent on 09/25/2019

A Gem of Geneva!
The Cracker Factory was a dream come true when we came across the space. It had enough room for all of our guests and had such a great atmosphere and charm that we fell in love with it instantly. I am still can get over the vintage and modern mix of the painted brick and bistro lights. It was also enticing that you could have the ceremony right on site as well. Amy, Brandon, and Maggie were a delight to work with and were very accommodating, especially when it came to opening up their doors to let us bring in guests, decorations and other vendors for the big day. They also provided the bar service that had such an amazing selection of beer, wine, and alcohol that I had no concerns about people finding drinks they liked. It covered all the bases. If you are looking for a place to wow your guests in the heart of the Finger Lakes this should be the first place to look!Sent on 09/09/2019

Simply the best!
We had the most perfect day at our wedding on August 31, 2019 at the Cracker Factory and it was all thanks to Maggie, Amy, and Brandon. In the months leading up to the wedding, Maggie worked around the clock to make sure that everything went smoothly. I called and emailed her constantly with various questions and she always answered immediately. Maggie even helped me set up a projector so that we could play a surprise video to honor my dad who is a quadriplegic and could not dance with me for the father/daughter dance. Maggie is so calm and organized that you instantly feel relieved just knowing that she will be involved in the process. Not only does she have incredible work ethic, but she is a joy to be around.Sent on 09/10/2019
We had the pleasure of meeting Amy and Brandon at our wedding as well and we were blown away by their hospitality and easy going nature. They work hard to not only make sure that you are happy with the space, but also help with recommendations of vendors in the area that they have worked with (many of which we used and were incredibly pleased with).
The Cracker Factory is the most unique wedding venue that I have ever seen and my husband and I received countless compliments on how unique the space was. You will not regret working with them. We are so grateful to Amy, Brandon, and Maggie for our wonderful wedding, which will forever be our favorite day.
