We know you’ve planned this day your entire life, and even if you haven’t you want to be involved as much as possible. This is one of the most important days of your life, and we want it to be all about you. That starts with you being hands-on with all the details, but it also means we don’t want you getting overwhelmed. When does this happen? You guessed it...right before your BIG DAY! When all should be wrapping up, everything is really ramping up with vendor questions, then there’s the  ‘oh, I didn’t think about that”, and finalizing all those last minute details. This is our time to take all the fun work you’ve crafted in creating your big day, and we put it into a nice little package with a bow on top. Oh yeah, and don’t forget the ribbon.

Questions about CR Planning

WHAT IS CR PLANNING & EVENTS?

As a wedding venue, we have two preferred, exclusive planners. One is CR Planning & Events which is Chestnut Ridge’s in-house wedding planner. Chestnut Ridge, although only open since September 2017 has been in the wedding industry since 2013. We have a high level of experience and knowledge around weddings, but more importantly an true familiarity of our venue. We also offer wedding planning services with the exact same packages as Mingle Events.

Mingle has been a partner with Chestnut Ridge since the very beginning. Since they have planned over 50% of all weddings we’ve had at Chestnut Ridge, they also have a high level of experience with our venue, our vendors, and the entire wedding planning process.

Both planning companies are great, with a Team that collectively work together so whoever is available will definitely serve you on your wedding day at the highest quality possible. Neither will disappoint!
