    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.
    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!

    Schuyler was wonderful to work with. Always gracious. Very reassuring to Misty, the bride, when she
    was nervous. The whole staff at Craddock Terry was wonderful. Patrick, in particular, treated the
    reception as if it was for a dear friend. He stood in the cold directing traffic, creatively came up with a
    way to handle the confetti send-off since it was so cold outside, and managed to whisk the newlyweds
    off to their room without anyone knowing (it was a secret that they were staying there). We would
    highly recommend the Craddock Terry to any and everyone!!
