I meet with brides to plan their wedding flowers almost every day, and I will HIGHLY recommend Crane Bay for their special day!

Nicole offered a quality tour of the space and offered some innovative ideas for utilizing the space. When we arrived members of the staff graciously checked on us to ensure we were attended to.

Based on my experiences today, I have the upmost confidence that your team would provide our guests with a flawless experience.
