I cannot say enough good things about The Crane Bay. I'd been there for a work party nearly two and half years ago and decided that if I ever got married, that was the place to do it. Luckily, my ... Read more husband agreed. We booked them almost a year and a half in advance. Amy Keemer is the absolute best, as well as all of their staff. They were so welcoming, helpful, and did everything we asked and more. The venue itself is industrial and urban, it's perfect if you are looking for that vibe. I think every single guest we had (150) commented on how amazing they were. The food was excellent and the bartenders were fantastic. They were flexible and very communicative. Like I said, I won't be able to say enough good things. Our wedding went on without a hitch, and it definitely was thanks to Amy & The Crane Bay.
