The venue was beautiful. The food was excellent! The staff was really nice. They didn't seem to give enough prep time for the ceremony. The ceremony room was nice the venue was beautiful. The food was excellent! The staff was really nice. They didn't seem to give enough prep time for the ceremony. The ceremony room was nice, the sound system was kind of low. They gave an hour for the ceremony comma but that was including the ceremony and pictures and the signing of the license. It was a lot to get done in 1 hour. During the reception the staff was very attentive. We did buffet style and the head table was served family style. There was plenty of food and it was exactly what we expected. Overall this was a great place to have my ceremony. We paid $60 per person with prime rib dinner buffet and ice cream. Our price also included linen, orders, pizza late night, and the DJ. We were very impressed.

There was some things this venue did amazingly well and some things they should work on.
First the pros were the servers and my master of ceremonies was pretty good . Friendly and professional staff. I was pleasantly surprised when the staff brought my husband and I plates of food to our table since we had a buffet. (We also did a sweetheart table so no large wedding party). This was a nice added touch since it allowed me to catch my breath and actually eat. The VIP room which is the smaller room/ ceremony room has beautiful new chiavari chairs! The location was beautiful, the room clean and pristine. Everything went fairly well as far as schedule went. They even let me take some of the leftover food home with me which was much appreciated.
The cons were mainly about the bar. I paid for the highest deluxe premium bar and I felt I really didn't get what I paid for there. I had several guest complain about the bartender not knowing how to make simple drinks and cocktails which really infuriated me. With the service I paid for it was to include daiquiris, however one of my guest said they didn't have a blender at the bar so they could only make daiquiris on the rocks which is ridiculous. My husband went to talk with the bartender and the matter was taken care of and they magically found a blender. I ordered a long island iced tea and it was the worst I have ever had, just tasted like pure alcohol. I was also aggravated that there was a tip jar out. I paid a lot for an open bar of the highest quality at my event and there should have not been a tip jar in my opinion. It was unprofessional. I was also told that the tables were to seat ten people each when they actually were eight and this threw off my whole seating chart and ended up with two empty tables. Luckily my mother and mother- in- law fixed the tables quickly before I arrived or else this would have been a real issue. Overall it is a beautiful venue and compared to other places an affordable option.

WHAT AN AWESOME VENUE!!!! We just got married May 14th, 2016 and it was perfect. They performed our wedding day perfectly. We had Prime Rib (delicious), Mashed Potatoes (even more delicious), Chicken Piccata, and Broccoli. They did everything we needed them to do. There was a master of ceremonies on the day of that handled every detail. I had no worries. They accommodated our special bar requests flawlessly. I would recommend them to anyone trying to plan a wedding on a reasonable budget. Really top notch.

Everything up to the wedding was very nice. Then on the wedding night, we felt like we were looked over by their new years eve gala by giving us their "B" crew to work our wedding. The DJ was amazing, and responsive and open to everything from the music the flow of the reception, he was actually the saving grace for the reception, along with our photographer. We received multiple complaints after our wedding about the staff and service of the venue. I personally witnessed the bar area not being stocked, and waiting almost 2 hours for more bourbon. Also, the bar didn't have soft drinks, or juice, for the first 2 hours of our reception. It just seemed that stocking and prepairing the bar was totally skipped over. As part of our package we choose the Champaign fountain, which was drizzling champaign out of the nozzles, when there was champaign in it, that too was dry at times. The servers were either overwhelmed or under experienced. The wedding party was introduced to a "dedicated" server for our table, but after the food was served, that was the last service we received from her. Before the food was served, there was supposed to be a appetizer table, that wasn't out until the main dishes were being served, and almost immediately taken down once everybody was served. Lots of wasted food. The fish was fantastic, as was their hollandaise sauce on broccoli, but just about everything else was very fatty, or flavorless. Despite the service and bar not being stocked, the photographer and DJ kept the pace of the rest of the reception going as it should of been, which we thought the supplied wedding director would be doing. The wedding director introduces himself before the food was brought out, and that was about all the interaction we had with him the whole night. It was basically us and the DJ and photographer calling the shots the whole night, which worked fine, I guess we just had higher expectations. We still had a blast.

My FH worked there through High school, so before we got engaged he always joked about how we could have our reception there and I always said absolutely not.
After I met with Florence to at least give them a shot, I wanted to book right then and there!
We are having our wedding at Crystal Park which is their smaller facility in Allen Park and having our ceremony at Taylor Conservatory!
They have a package that they advertise as "everything but the dress and tux" its so convenient and if you think about it, only having to write one check at the end of it all??? SOO worth it! PLUS they're all great people that work there! I would recomend this venue to any of my friends getting married!!

I love Crystal Gardens. Everyone there is very nice and extremely flexible. If you are able to spend a little bit more on your overall dinner, go with the package deal where your cake and invitations are included. It is so worth it because it takes extra, unnecessary stress off your shoulders!
