Amazing wedding event at Crystal Mountain
Crystal Mountain was so great to work with! I did a very small elopement very last minute(only a month of planning) and from day 1 they were so responsive and made me feel like my wedding was the most important event of the day. I would love to give a shout out to Carmen and Stephanie who are great to work with and made my day so amazing. The food was catered through them and everyone loved it. They brought it straight to us and picked everything up so seamlessly. I also needed extra things the day of and they were able to bring it no problem.Sent on 02/27/2021
A beautiful place and wonderful people to work with, I would highly recommend using them.

Perfect in every way!
Planning a wedding during a pandemic was extremely difficult. But the staff at Crystal Mountain were very helpful and worked with us along the way. They kept us informed on the ever changing rules and regulations and gave us new options and ideas to ensure our wedding was perfect. Our ceremony was at the top of the mountain and the fall colors were at their peak! I am glad we changed our date from the spring to the fall, it gave me a little more time to plan and the colors were breathtaking. Our reception was in a beautiful tent and the service staff was amazing and attentive. The food was hands down the best! (I still have people telling me how good everything was!) We felt like royalty! I plan to come back every year for our anniversary as Crystal Mountain is like home to me!Sent on 12/17/2020

Would have been the perfect day if it wasn't for COVID
Due to the restrictions and executive orders in the state of Michigan we were unable to continue planning our wedding at Crystal Mountain. Although we are extremely sad we did not get to experience our day here Crystal Mountain was exceptional to work with. Stephanie, especially, was fantastic. She answered all of my hundreds of questions and went above and beyond to make any of my crazy ideas come to life. Carmen, also communicated with me when things were not looking like they were going to go as planned. She worked with us in this unfortunate event to make sure we were satisfied at the end of the day and of course wished us the best of luck. If you are thinking about booking this venue I highly recommend as you will not be disappointed. We will for sure be back to Crystal Mountain!Sent on 09/24/2020

The perfect wedding! We had our reception on the Mountain Top Deck with the most gorgeous weather possible. Our guests loved riding the ski lift to the top. The food was amazing, I received many compliments on our appetizers. Stephanie Gray and Carmen Kott were very professional and super responsive with emails. Wish we could do it all over again! It was the perfect day. They also kept us very organized which helped a lot. It was like having wedding planners without having to pay for one.Sent on 09/30/2019

Wedding Planning with Crystal Mountain
Thus far, working with Crystal Mountain in coordinating our wedding has been fantastic. Their team is extremely responsive, professional, and easy to work with. My fiance and I are planning our wedding from across the country to have it in Michigan where we grew up, and we wouldn't be able to accomplish this without their help.Sent on 01/16/2019

Perfect venue with amazing views!
We chose Crystal Mountain because it had everything we were looking for: mountain top views for our ceremony, outdoor reception close by, and the option for lodging for our guests. Our wedding party booked two Mountainside townhomes, and Crystal Mountain made sure they were next door to each other. This made it so much easier to keep everyone on track with our schedule and no one had to go back and forth to get their personal items.
Carmen was the first person we talked to at Crystal Mountain. She was so incredibly informative and responsive to our emails. When we checked out the venue, she was so friendly and easy to work with. She is a big reason why we chose Crystal Mountain because we knew it'd be easy to work out details with her. Our coordinators at Crystal Mountain were equally as helpful and made our entire day seamless and carefree. Special thanks to Stephanie for being so responsive and for putting up with our millions of questions!
I highly suggest taking the ski lift up to the ceremony on the mountain top. Everyone kept telling us how unique, peaceful, and scenic the ride was! All of our guests are still talking about the beauty of our wedding. It was definitely a hit and we have no regrets at all about choosing Crystal Mountain for our wedding!! Highly recommend!Sent on 10/02/2019

Best Wedding Venue Ever!
Crystal Mountain was everything we could ever hope for and so much for! We had several guests from out-of-town, out-of-state, and even out of the country! Everyone loved the scenic ceremony location and incredibly fun reception! Our guests continue to tell us what an amazing time they had and how much the venue blew them away! The food was amazing, the rooms/condos/cottages were UNREAL, and everywhere we went the staff were incredibly friendly and welcoming. I can not recommend this venue enough. If you want a beautiful venue to capture all that Northern Michigan has to offer - look no further!Sent on 09/18/2019

Stress Free Wedding Planning!
Crystal Mountain is as perfect as wedding venues get! Thanks due to Carmen Kott and Stephanie Gray, our seasoned planning experts, all of our wedding planning was a breeze. The sit down, plated food tasting was a very nice surprise and having the chef come out for questions was even better! If you need reservations, ask for Carissa Smith, she is a true expert and is understanding when it comes to questions.Sent on 09/12/2019
We compared Crystal Mountain to many other venues in the Traverse City area and if you are wanting friendly and detail oriented, don't even bother looking elsewhere besides this venue!

Best experience ever
Our wedding was absolutely stunning. The mountain top ceremony has beautiful views for miles, and what an experience for our guest to ride a chair lift up to it. The staff were very helpful start to finish. Everyone was very helpful and attentive to myself and all my family and friendsSent on 09/03/2019

Carmen, Stephanie and their team are extremely professional, attentive and helpful. They helped create my dream wedding and I am forever grateful! I would recommend Crystal Mountain a million times over.Sent on 08/29/2019

Crystal Mountain was a dream! We blindly chose Crystal Mountain while living out of state. After signing a contract We did a tour in the winter & it was hard to imagine what it would look like come summer. One word “WOW!” Not only is it gorgeous- they are so hospitable! Professional! Organized! Everything you could ask for.Sent on 08/21/2019
Carmen is on point with everything & super responsive, easy to communicate with! Stephanie was amazingly helpful in making the events flow smoothly. I was so stressed the day before & their team melted all of that away! Totally worth it!

Amazing Experience All Around
Crystal Mountain exceeded our expectations! We felt SO taken care of by each of the people we worked with: Stephanie, Samantha, Carmen, and more! By the end of the wedding, we felt as though we were working with a team of really good friends. They helped us troubleshoot problems on the day of and were so professional. Our guests LOVED riding the chairlift to our ceremony space (truly, people were going crazy over it) and the permanent tent is such an upgrade for Crystal Mountain. We hung lovely chandeliers and bistro lights and it looked magnificent. Overall, we were so impressed by our experience with Crystal Mountain and we'd highly recommend them to anyone looking for a northern Michigan wedding venue.Sent on 08/20/2019

One million stars!
I would give Crystal a million stars if I could! Every penny was worth it because we had the most perfect day. From the very beginning, Carmen was so helpful and accommodating with getting us booked in! She was wonderful. Then, Stephanie was a rockstar in planning our wedding! Everyone was so accommodating to special requests-and we had a lot! From a special dual plate, to adding in different wines to the packages, they were willing to do whatever it took to make our day special! Even the girl at guest services helped us book some last minute condos when our airbnb didn't have AC! All across the board, I would give Crystal all the praise! The organization, friendliness, professionalism, hospitality, and genuine care for their clients is impeccable. THANK YOU TO CRYSTAL for our dream wedding!Sent on 08/09/2019

The Crystal Mountain team was amazing! They were so friendly and accommodating. They made planning a wedding as simple as possible and even allowed us to use their wine distributor to get wines that they usually don’t carry.Sent on 06/23/2019

We had what all couples fear - poor weather leading up to and the day of our outdoor wedding. Crystal’s staff did a fabulous job helping us form a plan in case of poor weather, which we ended up using for our reception. Everyone we worked with was amazing from start to finish!Sent on 06/23/2019

AMAZING from start to finish!!!
I cannot say enough good things about how incredible Crystal Mountain and their entire team is!!! From the food, to the event spaces, to the staff, every detail of our wedding was meticulously cared for. Carmen and Stephanie helped our planning go so smoothly, I never worried about any details! We had so many compliments on how wonderful the cabins and hotel rooms were for our guests! We stayed in the cabins at Crystal for almost an entire week, and the entire stay was a dream. We had our rehearsal dinner in the Bee Room at the Thistle Pub, and the food and staff were amazing! I want to give a special shout out to Joel and the bartender at the Thistle Pub, as they were PHENOMENAL in all ways for the entire wedding weekend! Our wedding ceremony was on the Mountain Top, and our ceremony was in the Northwest Territories ballroom. Our guests LOVED the chairlift up the mountain, it was so much fun! The views were absolutely breathtaking. They were also great at accommodating our guests who were unable to ride the chairlift. Our ceremony was absolutely gorgeous, and our reception was amazing! It was the best food I have ever had at a wedding, and they were phenomenal with accommodating our special requests. I am so happy that we chose to get married at Crystal Mountain, as they gave us a dream wedding weekend!Sent on 09/21/2019

Crystal Mountain has it all from lodging, rehearsal dinner space and ceremony and reception!
We had our entire wedding weekend at Crystal Mountain and it could of not been more perfect! Carmen helped us find the best location for us from the rehearsal dinner, a welcome reception with a bonfire for all our family and friends as well as the ceremony and wedding reception. Samantha was a huge help through the planning process answering any questions we had and both Samantha, Emily and Sharon helped see everything through on the day of to make sure our day was perfect! Our guests loved being able to stay right on-site and the variety of rooming options was great for everyone to pick what was right for them. Thank you to Crystal Mountain for making our wedding weekend the most stress free and fun weekend we could of imagined!Sent on 10/23/2018

Wonderful Venue Attentive Staff
Our guests loved all of the different lodging options. We didn't have time to take advantage of the many activities onsite but there really is something for everyone. The food was incredible. People called us after just to tell us how good the food was. The people we worked with were very attentive and I felt like they truly cared that my experience was great and my day was special.Sent on 05/25/2019

Exceptional wedding venue! Both myself and my groom were beyond impressed with both Carmen Kott and Samantha Roelofs customer service and flexibility! There wasn’t much that they, as well as other Crystal Mountain staff said no to when it came to our expectations and making our perfect wedding dreams come true! We are so thankful that we decide to hold our wedding at this venue and you will be too!Sent on 09/30/2018

As the FOB (Father of Bride) I could not have been happier with Crystal Mountain! Crystal did a great job from start to finish and the people that we worked with, Carmen Kott & Samantha Roelofs, were perfect support. They communicated very well and kept things in line on the budget we had. It was simply the perfect wedding venue and reception for this event.Sent on 09/10/2018
Everyone at Crystal was very helpful throughout the entire set up and welcoming our guest to the resort on the day of the wedding. One special note, during the reception my daughter as if I had a tums with me and I did not. The reception 'captain' Sharren Williamson went to the market at Crystal and bought her some antacid stuff that helped the bride a bunch. That was service above and beyond!
I would highly recommend Crystal Mountain as a great choice for your wedding & reception plans.
