  • Absolutely loved our experience at Crystal Gardens. From the moment we set up our appointment to meet with Valerie to the moment we left out reception at the end of the wedding everything was perfect. They went above and beyond for us and we would highly recommend them to anyone in the future.

  • The open air chapel is gorgeous! I was in the celebrity ballroom and it was breathtaking...Val was so easy to get in contact with and she was very quick at responding to all my questions and working with me. Our event captain, Christina was also super easy to work with! -- The food was delicious and the guests raved how amazing our bartender was as well. CG really turned my dream wedding into a reality !

  • Crystal Gardens has an amazing outdoor chapel. It's so beautiful with the flowers and flowing curtains. Wonderful place to get married. The reception rooms are beautiful as well. They have terrific food and even did our wedding cake. Everything was amazing. I couldn't have found a better place!

  • If you are looking for a venue for your wedding you HAVE to go with Crystal Gardens!! We got married Labor Day weekend in their celebrity room and had our ceremony in their outdoor chapel. Crystal Gardens is so beautiful they pay close attention to every detail!! The hallways are full of flowers and a big staircase they make for great pictures and you hardly have to decorate. They also have beautiful chandeliers in all the rooms and patios. It looks much more expensive then what you will pay. Our guests absolutely loved it!! If you do go with Crystal Gardens I would recommend working with Laura L. as your coordinator she helped us from day one and was absolutely amazing!!! The food is great we got so much positive feedback from outer guests. Our package included our DJ, cake and chair covers which was great for the price and less vendors to deal with. Definitely 5 stars!!! Bianca and Jay

  • My wedding was incredible thanks to everyone at Crystal Garden. From the event coordinators and planners to the chef, everyone was a pleasure to work with and the food was delicious. Not to mention the venue itself is just beautiful as we got married in the outside chapel. Can't go wrong with Crystal Garden.

  • The venue is beautiful and a great setting for a wedding! The wedding coordinator that was included was priceless and Barbara was fantastic! However the food was not good and VERY expensive for what they provide. My father in law is allergic to pepper bad tried to serve him a bowl of buttered noodles for $25!! They ended bringing h something else but it was just as terrible. A complete let down.

  • The night was 100% of what we wanted it to be, nothing could have changed that. The food at Crystal Gardens was good, the package deal great, the bartender was busy and kept a smile on his face, and the facility was clean and set up nicely. The only thing we would've had differently was the gentleman in the hallway who I guess acts as a security of some sort. He was rude to a few of our guests including my maid of honor, flower girl (who is 2.5), and a bridesmaid. He also interupted the signing of the marriage license because he needed someone to bring our dog outside asap. (He was allowed for the ceremony.)

  • We had our wedding here last weekend and it was amazing. Valerie, Laura, and Kari were so wonderful throughout my entire planning process. They are extremely accommodating, helpful and reply to any question in a fast manor. The food was awesome, the decor is breathtaking and the packages they offer are amazing. This Crystal Gardens is way classier, fancier, and luxurious than the one in South gate...its like a whole different place. They made my wedding unforgettable! I cannot say enough!

  • We had a great ceremony and reception at Crystal Gardens. First, with our ceremony, Barbara was so amazing. If you are thinking of having your ceremony here - do it! She made it all no-nonsense and no worries. The only thing that was a little strange was when I first arrived with my bridal party, the young lady greeting guests had no idea where the bridal rooms were (I did - thankfully) and had no idea how to take me there. Her job was to greet guests and take them to the appropriate place so I was a little worried about that. She did say she was new, but I guess I figured she'd be trained better. HOWEVER, besides that hiccup, the day was great. I did go check on my room (the Celebrity Room) and my centerpieces weren't exactly how I wanted but the staff fixed them as soon as I said something. Our room captain, Christina, was AMAZING. She was attentive but not in the way. She was great! Our bartender was also wonderful. She had drinks ready as soon as you walked up to the bar - all our ...

  • Great venue and breathtakingly beautiful. Professional staff and very attentive and always available with QUICK responses and fantastic communication. A few hiccups during the actual event, but nothing worth mentioning since they were unforeseen issues that could not have been avoided. Definitely well worth the cost and highly recommended.

  • Crystal Gardens was the PERFECT location for our ceremony and reception. The chapel is stunning and has a very romantic feel with the lighting and the shades drawn. The Sound system in the chapel is wonderful as all the guests can hear the music and words clearly. All around the Chapel is just gorgeous. The hall was also lovely. We had the royal and grand ballrooms and it was the perfect size for our guests. It did not look squishy or too open. It was the perfect size. The outdoor patio was a nice touch and our guests really enjoyed sitting outside and relaxing if they did not want to dance. The hall is clean and updated. The room is so beautiful on its own that we did not need any backdrops or drapes to cover or hide the walls. They have these beautiful gold trimmed mirrors that really make the room look elegant. The food was delicious. We had family style, and all the food was hot and fresh. There was plenty to go around and everyone was full and not left hungry. We received a t... Read more
