    Beautiful Venue!!

    Cork and Crate was truly a beautiful venue. It fit perfectly for our wedding day.
    James and Rhonalyn made sure everything was perfect and were super helpful with everything, making our wedding day flow very nicely. Our guests were in awe of the place and they really enjoyed themselves. Their beautiful venue offered so many areas to take amazing photos that you will cherish for a lifetime.

    Perfect Day!

    We had an incredible wedding day at Cork & Crate Farms. James & Rhonalyn had everything ready to go for us to set up and they were so caring to help make our day special! What a gorgeous venue, we couldn't have chosen a better place. We loved that we could get ready for the first look & take all our photos there, with such lush & beautiful areas to choose from. Our favourite part of our evening wedding was the opportunity to visit with all our guests in different capacities - from under the lights of the tent, playing horseshoes or on Whiskey Hill! We wouldn't have changed a thing about our special day. Thank you so much Cork & Crate Farms - you truly made our day better than we could have imagined!!
