  • Crystal Gardens was a great venue for our wedding. We loved the open air chapel and the ballroom. It was ideal having the ceremony and reception in one location for our out of town guests and made it easier to plan our wedding out of state. The staff was friendly and available to answer any questions. I was able to visit the venue several times when I was in town without having to make an appointment. They offered a Friday Package with great discounts and other services included buffet or family style dinner, wedding cake, DJ, chair covers, Shutterbooth photobooth, or invitations. It was definitely a great venue to host our wedding

  • I had an off-site wedding reception and asked Crystal Gardens to cater it. From the chairs to the food to the cake, everything was beautiful. Not to mention the customer service and attention to every detail by the staff. There was not a beat they missed and helped me feel calm and in control. If I ever need to use a banquet center again, I will definitely choose Crystal Gardens. A special thank you to Jessica Brooks for making my wedding reception, and the time leading up to it, a perfect experience.

  • I cannot say enough great things about this venue and their staff. I had to move my date up very short notice, and they were extremely accomodating. We got married a month ago, and our family and friends are still talking about what an amazing time they had and how great the food was. They have an amazing deal on Friday weddings that you can't beat anywhere in the area, and their outdoor chapel is absolutely beautiful. Their staff took care of absolutely EVERYTHING for us, our day was absolutely perfect and stress-free. Thank you Crystal Gardens for an amazing wedding day that we'll never forget!!

  • We held our wedding at the Howell Opera House and they work with only three caterers. We were told that Crystal Gardens was the most expensive option, so we called the other two first. The first guy had a completely separate (and more expensive) menu exclusively for the opera house...what we could get for some other venue cost two or three bucks more per person at the opera house. Super off-putting. We tried the second option; he was taking that month off due to the birth of a grandchild. With a bit of trepidation we called "the expensive option." They were wonderful! We gave them an idea of what we wanted and how much we could spend and they built a custom option for us. Presentation was lovely, the waiter who worked our event was kind and professional, and the food tasted great. So glad we ended up with Crystal Gardens!

  • I loved my wedding at Crystal Gardens and we got so many compliments! We used the outdoor ceremony site and the celebrity room, both are beautiful! The staff was very helpful and professional. I even had a guest that found out about a dairy and gluten allergy two weeks before the wedding and they made her a special plate of food! At the end of the night the staff helped take down all my decor. My experience with Crystal Gardens could not have been better and I would recommend them to everyone!

  • Crystal gardens was amazing, beautiful and created memories that I will never forget! From the first meeting to the day of the wedding I was lucky enough to have Valerie Keough as my consultant. At that first meeting she explained every possible thing to me and really put me at ease. I had only been to 3 weddings in my lifetime and when I was young so I really had no idea how everything worked. Even as questions came up after the meeting I was able to email her and she was always so quick responding to my emails. Valerie went above and beyond constantly with her service and help. She was incredibly knowledgeable and there wasn’t a question I asked that she didn’t know the answer. She was here when I dropped off my things to be set up and helped me get everything where it needed to be. The individuals that were supposed to come to the wedding and to tear down my receptions did not show up and the Crystal Garden staff stepped in and said they would help me. They took pity on me as th... Read more

  • We worked with many of the girls here and for the most part everything was amazing. They were very responsive and helped answer any questions we had. My only complaint is during our meetings with them it came off as they had the thought that we needed them more than they needed us. They pump weddings out weekly and ours turned out amazing, I just wish that they were more flexible. Little things like not allowing the flower girls to toss petals during the ceremony. Or making the guests wait in the lobby bar and buy their drinks while they waited for the reception to start. There was nothing that was a huge problem, I just didn't feel like they valued the $10,000 we spent there. Not a huge amount to all, but it was a huge amount to us.

  • I had the best wedding at Crystal Gardens. Well my husband and I had the best wedding at Crystal Gardens. I can't say enough about Florence who works at CG. She was the person we met with when we signed our contract and made our deposit. She went above and beyond her job to make sure that our wedding was perfect. I was a crabby bride and wasn't always the nicest person to deal with but she made sure my every need was met. We had a couple glitches (not due to Crystal Gardens but due to our decorator) and she was able to assist us with making sure that our room got decorated perfect and on time. Her years of experience really benifits any bride she works with!

  • The banquet hall was beautifully set but we did have a few problems with the set up. Sometimes some of the staff isn't at the utmost professional, especially via email.BUT it is a great value for what you get.
