I attended two separate weddings at this venue and I fell in love. When my wife and I got engaged, this was a must for us. It's beautiful and amazing; from the gardens to the reception area, everything is gorgeous. Amy was just the icing on top as she made everything perfect. My... Read More wife, who is typically a little neurotic, did not worry about a thing. I always like to be in control of what's happening, and I had no worries about handing over all the responsibility over to Amy. She handled every issue we threw her way with ease and an admirable grace. Amy went consistently above and beyond to make our wedding the special day we dreamed of. She was always so excited to talk to us, to hear about our wedding plans, and to offer up suggestions when we were unsure. It's very clear she loves what she does and it shows in her work. From discreetly dealing with family issues, to making sure our fears were eased, she did beyond what we asked for. I loved everything about planning our wedding. Everyone we know complains about how hard it is planning a wedding, but with Amy's help I would gladly do it all again. Absolutely a fantastic celebration. Everything about our experience was perfect; from the scenery, to the schedule, and the crazy looking chickens.

The Wedding of my dreams!! I went to the Bridal Extravaganza with hopes of finding a venue. I found several that I wanted to see, with The Gardens of Cranesbury at the top of my list. When I got home my 2 maid of honors and I went through each flyer. At the top of Amy's flyer I... Read More wrote "She has her stuff in order!" (with several stars and smiley faces) Amy was so calm at the Extravaganza; when other vendors are barking at you to come look at their booth; she was calming and pleasant. Amy's venue was the first venue my fiancé and I looked at. Amy gave me a tour of the facility and it was breathtaking. It was everything I had hoped for. She took me down the path that I would be walking with my father and I couldn't hold back the tears. It just felt right! We looked at 3 other venues, but none of them gave me the same feeling as I did at The Gardens of Cranesbury View. To top it all off, I used Amy as my venue, florist and coordinator. She made planning a wedding easy!! With the coordinator package she told me exactly what I needed to be doing and when, what outside vendors she recommended and took all the stress off of me. The flowers were gorgeous!! From the bouquets to the flower arrangements on the table and the gazebo, it was stunning and the pictures turned out beautiful. Many guests told me that I looked like a page right out of Alice in Wonderland. Amy and her staff comes highly recommended!!!

Amy, it was great knowing you were in our corner. Living so far away from the event was definitely not an advantage for me. You gave me the confidence to know that everything would be taken care of and thank you for that. Everything was absolutely beautiful. Even the weather... Read More cooperated. :-) I know my baby girl was well pleased. I can't wait for the pictures to be ready so I can another look. So much of the night was a blur for me. I asked Laura a couple days ago, "Who bustled you?" And she said, "Mama, Amy took care of that too." Thanks again

When my son and his bride chose The Gardens of Cranesbury View for a late August wedding, the thing we worried most about was the 110 degree heat we might experience. Never in a million years did we expect to deal with Hurricane Harvey! From the beginning, Amy and her team made... Read More planning the wedding effortless. Both the bride and groom lived out of the area, so a lot of the planning was done long distance and finalized just a few days before the wedding. Amy's 20+ years of experience were invaluable! And when several other venues were forced to cancel their weddings August 26th because of the weather, Amy very calmly and very confidently assured us that everything would be perfect, and it was! Even when we decided early in the day to move the wedding up a hour to better accommodate our guests, she coordinated with all the vendors and provided seamless service! Having an indoor wedding at the venue wasn't their first choice, but everything was set up beautifully. When the ceremony was over, the ballroom instantly transformed from ceremony seating to the tables for the reception and party. Despite the fact that Harvey was blowing and going outside, you never knew it inside! Our families can't thank Amy enough for everything she and her team did that day. It was beautiful! And it was certainly memorable! And we were all blessed in the process!

There were a lot of venues I liked, but I instantly fell in love with the Gardens of Cranesbury View when i saw the gazebo and the beautiful landscaping. There is a nice bridal suite in the house, but unfortunately not a great spot for the guys to lounge. Amy made the wedding... Read More planning process a breeze. All we had to do was pick the vendors and express what we wanted and Amy took care of everything! I think the biggest selling point was that we didn't have to set up a thing! There was no wedding on Friday so we were able to drop off all our decorations early and it was all set up for us how we had discussed. Then when it was all over Amy and her crew picked everything up and packed it in our cars. Amy is great at what she does, knows what works well and what doesn't work so well, and keeps things moving on a schedule. We are very happy with our experience.
