Choosing the Crescent for my wedding reception was an easy decision- it is spectacular looking on the inside and out, surrounded by the incredible beauty of Eureka Springs in the Ozark Mountains, and historic! However, it wasn't until I started working with Susan in the events department that I realized I was an extremely lucky bride. Saying she made the planning process easy would be an understatement...The staff at the Crescent...was incredible. The food was fresh and delicious and the waiters and bartenders were so kind and attentive....Pure excellence from the Crescent staff.~ Olivia Petree

Thank you for all of your help and attention. As Greg has said many times, the weekend was flawless. Your staff did an amazing job.

We had such a great time at Darcy and Brad’s wedding weekend at the Crescent Hotel. Many guests told us it was the most fun wedding they had been to. Many thanked us for being so kid friendly. We provided rooms for our minister and music minister, both needed the time away from church and responsibilities...~ Dana Hobbs

Julie

I am from Kansas and decided to host my wedding at the Crescent Hotel. All I can say about the hotel is FANTASTIC! Susan, the Wedding Coordinator, was great. She was available whenever I had questions and worked to ensure our happiness. On the day of, we worked with Catlin, who is the catering/event manager. His attention to detail and concern for our happiness was outstanding. It was raining on that Saturday and he was willing to make whatever I wanted work. We were supposed to have the ceremony in the Garden, however the rain won that battle. We were then just going to move inside when Catlin gave the option to have it in the pergola area. They were to assemble everything for 100+ people without fuss. We did the BBQ option for the reception. We ordered brisket and chicken. I only had the brisket, but it was fabulous. Service was great and everyone was extremely friendly and helpful. The Sunday brunch was also AMAZING! So much to choose from and the food was just delicious. ~ Julie

Thank you for everything you did to help make our wedding day perfect! I appreciate all your hard work and organization. Thank you for the beautiful Crescent pendent. It really is lovely and looks very pretty on, and when people compliment it I get to tell them about our wedding. Thank you also for the colorful book about Eureka Springs. We love it! It is a great reminder of one of our favorite cities.~ IbbyCambridge, MA

Bill & Erika

Thank you for making our wedding and honeymoon stay a relaxing and special time. We hope to return for may anniversaries. ~ Bill & ErikaYukon, OK

Thank you so much for everything you have done to make our wedding reception and big day a success! You have been so so wonderful to plan everything with, and although you are not truly our "wedding planner" we feel like you have been, as you have been there for every detail. Even offering to run and get my Sorghum back for me! The food and sustainability portion of the wedding has of course been highly valued by us and I am impressed with the flexibility the Crescent Hotel has offered us in planning such a large reception. You kept exceptional details of every single thing I mentioned, and it was so nice to work with someone so competent and caring and to see all the details come together in the BEO! Every time I had a question, you answered for me punctually. Each time we talked, you made the planning part delightful with your friendly and helpful attitude! And that is really nice for a bride who is pulling her hair out over details and stuff that just isn't her thing! From sourcing local food to dealing with room blocks to working through alcohol options to shuttles to my tiny details to letting Pearl stay wiht us in the penthouse - you have bee so very helpful and wonderful! ~ Elizabeth & Michael

Thank you so much for a truly beautiful wedding reception for Erin and Damien. the setup, food, and service were all wonderful and you were so great to work with. The Conservatory is such a beautiful place (even in the rain). I would have another reception there without hesitation ( I have one daughter left to go!) ~ Michele (Mother of the Bride)

Claudia

The setup for the reception was absolutely beautiful! Thank you so much for taking care of everything. The swan was the perfect touch, David even liked it. Everyone kept saying how nice the tables looked and how good the food was. You were a tremendous help and we appreciate it so much. Thanks for making this day so special. ~ Claudia

I want to thank you for helping my husband and I have a wonderful experience while in Eureka Springs! My sister and I had a great time and were highly impressed with the New Moon Spa's amazing women who blessed us by their abilities to styling our hair to perfection! Everything was just right for us!~ Trina

This is just a note to tell you that after considering every historic hotel property in Arkansas for my daughter's wedding, we chose the Crescent. None of the historic properties that we visited (and believe me when I say that we visited all of them) could compare with the beauty and majesty of the Crescent. You definitely have a unique property and an absolutely wonderful wedding venue. Additionally, your staff is superb! I would especially like to thank everyone who made the entire event happen with grace and elegance, the most wonderful chef who made our rehearsal dinner a dream, the people who worked like dogs to turn the Conservatory and Boardwalk into a dreamland, and lastly the staff who all treated us like royalty. Words cannot describe my feelings forthese individuals and for all the staff who made our event a memory to last a lifetime. The Crescent is a property that is professionally managed and staffed with the best pepple that I have ever had the pleasure to be around. ~ Al
