Love Notes
Had my wedding/elopement here over the weekend and it was such a wonderful experience! The staff were so helpful, accommodating and kind, they even remembered my family members names when serving us dinner. It was a dream working with Carol and everyone. The food was spectacular, literally one of the best meals of my life was my wedding dinner, it was just so delicious and cooked perfectly. The scenery was gorgeous, the bedroom was adorable. We definitely plan to return for a wedding anniversary or something. I would recommend them to anyone looking to get eloped or married. Even during covid they made my wedding so special and amazing and I can’t thank them enough!

Spent the weekend here for my best friend's wedding. Absolutely stunning view, comfortable stay in the most charming accomodation. The best part by far was the quality of the food. I've eaten at many 5 star restaurants and the food at Crossing Experience was most definitely 5 stars! The staff were all helpful and pleasant and everyone made me feel safe with covid measures in place. I highly recommend booking a wedding or group retreat at this establishment.

We had our wedding at The Crossing July 9, 2021 and the consulting, planning, food, hospitality and service was absolutely exceptional! We had 50 guests with all guests staying overnight. Carol was amazing to work with, making sure all details were taken care of in the planning and day of coordination. We had lots of guests with gluten/dairy allergies and the food was absolutely incredible, guests are still talking about it. We were blown away with our wedding day experience there and HIGHLY RECOMMEND this venue! Thank you to all staff at The Crossing for going above and beyond, we are so thankful!

Fun facts

What's your favorite party about a wedding?

Our favourite part of hosting weddings is the smiles, laughter and love that they bring to our property. We are primarily an event center that does lots of corporate events, the energy that weddings bring is different and nothing else compares to it.

Did you know?

The food, the photos on our property, and the intimacy of a smaller venue are the most common reasons people get married at The Crossing. It is a true hidden gem.
