The Crystal Ballroom is a fabulous venue. Not only is it one of the few beautiful, indoor, non-hotel (even though historically a small hotel, very different than a chain or major hotel with ballroom similar to a meeting facility or several events in the same night), venue with significant capacity (400) in town. The outdoor porch/patio is a huge plus, with great views and convenient for guests to walk outdoors, see downtown, and access a 2nd bar set up on the patio. The dance floor is also very large, which can be very hard to find one big enough to accommodate hundreds of people comfortably.

The food is provided by Sambuca, the hotel downstairs and owner of the Rice. Their food is amazing and they have so many items to choose from and ensure any tastes are available.

The service is great. They really are experienced and have suggestions and knowledge to provide throughout the planning process, which is so helpful. Even more, their professionalism and organization the day of the wedding is priceless. They make sure EVERYTHING goes smoothly and can tackle any issues that arise, with class. They will accommodate you for any special requests and make sure you are tended to the entire night and ready for the various events that occur throughout the reception.

For the quality of the venue, convenient location (I would also suggest booking rooms at the Magnolia across the street for guests), historic feel and aesthetic perfection, as well as food and service, the price really is reasonable. Nothing cheap but more than fair compared to other locations.
