This was the most perfect venue for my dream wedding. Amy and her staff made it possible for me truly have the best day of my life. She was extremely helpful in managing the entire wedding coordination process and was the biggest help the month before the wedding. Once the...

She is so sweet and accommodating, her flexibility and willingness to always help out made the planning process so much more fun than I was expecting.

I am so happy that we met Amy and her staff, our wedding wouldn't have been the gorgeous success it was without them! Also the pictures look STUNNING because of the beautiful venue. I definitely recommend the Gardens at Cranesbury View - I can't wait to go back for another event someday.

Our friends and family keep telling us how great our wedding was and how much fun they had! That's all we could've ever asked for.

My wife found The Gardens in a magazine and loved it from the start, and only fell more in love after seeing the venue in person and meeting with Amy the first time. We knew then and there that this was our venue and could not have made a better choice as far as I'm concerned.... Read More Amy stayed on top of everything from day one all the way through the day of the wedding. She made it clear what we had to do on our end and there was never any confusion (on a side note, not one of the other venues that we looked into would have provided someone to help us throughout the process on the level that Amy does, which was another amazing perk). She communicates wonderfully and made us incredibly proud to say that she made sure our wedding went on perfectly, and I couldn't have asked for a better day, I only wish it could have gone on longer!

There is no such thing as too much praise for Amy and the Gardens of Cranesbury View! Since Sean and I both live in Houston but wanted to have the Wedding from his hometown in New Braunfels we had to do most of the venue research from reviews online. When I saw the pictures of... Read More the Gardens on the Knot I was very impressed with how beautiful it was and the rave reviews made me feel that the Gardens was definitely a top contender. When I called Amy to schedule an appointment I couldn’t believe how friendly she was! The Gardens of Cranesbury was the first venue we toured and as soon as we arrived on the grounds I turned to Sean and said this is it (to his surprise since I never make quick decisions!). I was so impressed with the Gardens that when the wedding budget came up in conversation I often remarked I was ok with changing anything about the wedding but the venue, the Gardens of Cranesbury View was an absolute must! It helped they were very reasonably priced for all the service that was provided. One note I’d like to make is Amy provides a great list of vendors to work with and if at all possible you should stick with them. I picked a caterer that was not on her list for my Brunch wedding and they ended up going out of business a month before my Wedding Day. Once I told Amy not only did she give me the name of a great caterer who was available on such short notice and had a Brunch menu option but also she continued to follow up with them to make sure we had everything set with them in time. She is simply amazing! Also, since I had decided to craft most of my wedding I was afraid that I would have too many decorations to be set out but not only did Amy set everything up but she did it perfectly and it was done by the time of our rehearsal the day before so I had a chance to view it before the Wedding day. I had the most wonderful experience, Amy made sure our Wedding Day was flawless! We’re still getting comments on how beautiful the Venue was and I even recently had one of my guests remark they had never seen anyone so passionate about their job as Amy was. I couldn’t agree more! Thank you Amy for giving us the perfect Wedding Day!
