The staff at the Craddock Terry Hotel made our wedding weekend absolutely perfect. We chose to have our rehearsal dinner, ceremony, and reception all in their Event Center and everything was not only so beautiful, but also very easy, stress free and accessible for our guests. The food and drinks at both the rehearsal dinner and the wedding were delicious and the staff was very professional and courteous. The rooms were gorgeous and the staff did a great job of "flipping" the rooms several times to accommodate our different needs. We received so many compliments from our guests on the food, look of the wedding, and how much they loved their guest rooms. The venue is so beautiful in its modern yet historical structural elements that we had to do very little decorating and still ended up with breathtaking photos from the day. All around I would reccomend this venue to anyone I know who is getting married. They were wonderful to work with and still affordable.Sent on 08/30/2011

We just had our wedding at the Craddock Terry a couple of weeks ago, and it was overall such a great experience! The venue is absolutely beautiful, and you can't beat the fact that they have an amazing restaurant (Shoemakers) as part of the hotel that takes care of the food for you (which was delicious)! Everything is so convenient; the reception area is right beside where you would have your cocktail hour/ceremony (if you have it indoors), which is really easy for guests! We planned to have our ceremony outside on the patio, but the weather did not cooperate, but it wasn't a big deal because the Craddock Terry has a gorgeous option for indoor ceremonies! You will also have so many options of beautiful spots to take pictures, indoors and outdoors.Sent on 10/08/2018
We also opted to have the day of directing service, which I am so glad we did, Anna did such an amazing job of organizing everything and keeping everything moving smoothly on the day of! She helped alleviate so much stress right before the wedding by reaching out to vendors for us and just made us feel at ease on the day of. Even if you don't get the day of directing service, you will still work with Anna in the planning process and will certainly enjoy the experience. I literally did not have to worry about anything on our wedding day, and honestly didn't feel stressed at all, which was such a great feeling!
In short, I can't recommend the Craddock Terry enough; you will no doubt have a stressfree and absolutely beautiful wedding day!
