We were married yesterday at Cross Creek Ranch in the stable. From the second we went to Cross Creek Ranch for a tour, we were blown away. The grounds are breathtaking, the staff doesn't miss a beat and they really make dreams come true. We were fortunate to have Bonnie (owner)... Read More as our designer. She made all my Pinterest boards come to life. They have a huge variety of decorations, linens, and options that you can create a wedding that's perfect for you. You'll often hear about how exhausting wedding planning is. There are so many vendors and tiny details involved, it can easily become a full time job. Cross Creek Ranch makes wedding planning a breeze. All you have to focus on is inviting guests, finding a dream worthy dress and showing up! There was not one single point during our 13 month long process that I was stressed or worried about what I needed to do. My friends and family couldn't believe it! Our day was beyond perfect. The second I stepped on the grounds, they treated my wedding party as if we were the Queen of England. The staff are so kind and full of love. We started with a tour of the stable and grounds to make sure everything was just how we wanted. From that point, we enjoyed our beautiful wedding day without having to worry about timing or what to do next. Throughout the night, guests repeatedly came up to us to tell us this is the best wedding they've ever been to (obvious I think that, but I'm a little biased!). They couldn't believe how smooth everything was, how friendly all the staff were and how beautiful the chapel and stable were. I could go on for days about how Cross Creek Ranch made our dreams come true. This was one of the best decisions I've ever made.

Cross Creek Ranch has a flat-out fee system for the amount of guests that you want, up to 150 people. It includes a food budget, cake budget, flower budget, the DJ, all set-up and break-down, someone to design everything to your specifications, tables, chairs, linens, and free... Read More range of their extensive decorations. Of course if you choose you can go over their allotted budgets for specific things- we went over a little bit on the cake budget because we had desserts as our wedding favors, and we went over a little on the flower budget as well. The also provide a bartender, and you bring in your own alcohol (a money saver, for sure). Cross Creek Ranch makes it so easy, and they remove SO much stress from the wedding planning process! All of the vendors they use are absolutely outstanding, and I can find literally nothing about any of them to criticize. Everyone is nice, helpful, and genuinely excited for you. They go over every single thing with you in great detail, so that the day of your wedding when you're in an absolute adrenaline-and-excitement fueled state, they have everything ready and done and there's nothing for you to worry about except whether or not your groom will be able to figure out how to tie his bowtie correctly (he did). They are there with you when you arrive, even assigning a coordinator to carry the train of your dress around for pictures, so that your bridesmaids have their hands free to carry your wine for you. They take you to the best picture spots, help arrange your dress just so, and corral your groomsmen into doing funny pictures for you, all the while having bug spray ready and snacks and a super-powerful AC unit that can blow up under the 12 layers of tulle you have on to help cool you off. They know how to gently nudge your wedding party in the right direction, how to distract your Instagram-happy cousins so that you can take your sweetheart pictures in peace, and they’re willing to throw themselves into ridiculous situations so that you can get that perfect “veil floating in the wind” picture you’ve seen on Pintrest and are desperate to re-create. Every single staff member there is personable, lively, and help your family and friends to have a great time! They make you feel so special and wonderful and they help make sure that everybody else does the same. I absolutely and passionately recommend Cross Creek Ranch for anyone looking for an outdoor venue. They will do every single thing in their power to make sure you have the wedding you want, and will look back on for the rest of your life and be grateful for!

Overall we had a very good experience with Cross Creek Ranch. The venue looked amazing on the wedding day. The caterers, vendors and staff that work with or Cross Creek Ranch were top-knotch. My husband and I were trying to plan the wedding from abroad and the staff worked very... Read More hard to make this as easy and painless as possible for us, despite the distance. The only two complaints (one minor and one more serious) I had were 1) (minor) In terms of design, it wasn't as easy to customize what we had in mind. However, we were always able to work something out that we were both satisfied with. 2) This was a bit more major and the reason for 4 stars and not 5, is that on the wedding my mother made arrangements for surprise visitors that she had okayed with the venue before hand. The person that helped her organize the surprise was not allowed to come into the reception area because of how she was dressed. Having learned about this after the fact, I am very embarrassed that they were kept away and have apologized. I would have been very happy for them to join the festivities, however briefly. Other than that, I do recommend the venue, but perhaps talk to your day-of coordinator and to let them know if any surprises like that were to occur.

We were the first wedding of the season, but we wouldn't have even known if they hadn't told us. Everything was set up perfectly and all of the staff were in top form. The whole space was beautifully decorated and everyone was doing a great job of making sure everything ran... Read More smoothly and we had any support we needed. One of our favorite aspects was how they helped suggest and coordinate with vendors to make sure every part of the event came together with the only effort from us being choosing the specific vendors, and the details of the meal, flowers, cake, etc. Leading up to the wedding CCR made sure the planning process was as painless as possible. Over a couple of design meetings they showed a great understanding and interest in our views for the style of our wedding while adeptly helping us fill in the many blanks in detail that we had not planned. In short, we brought them a vague description and overall theme, some colors, and a pinterest full of scattered ideas and they returned that in the first design meeting with what felt almost like mind reading in how well it fit the feel we were looking for. After nailing down the details and refining it over a few more meetings, the end result was breath-taking and certainly better than we could have ever conceived on our own. On the actual day, each of us (both the bride and the groom) had our own dedicated staff member making sure that everything went smoothly; ensuring we had anything we needed and that we were where we needed to be and when. Staff running the bar and food service were friendly and professional and did their jobs admirably. We fell in love with this venue the moment we laid eyes on it and we haven't regretted it for a single second.
