As a florist I was absolutely in awe of how beautiful everything was, you could not have a more picturesque venue. The owners are extremely nice and you can tell they enjoy what they do, they were very helpful. :)
My husband and I had the wedding of our dreams at Crooked River Weddings this past weekend. Could not ask for more - Kent, Karm, Kelsey, and Nathan were all a huge help and made sure we had everything we needed along the way...we would recommend CRW to anyone!!! Absolutely amazing! More...

Hands down one of the nicest wedding venues in Michigan! The whole grounds is amazing for photo and video on wedding day. There really isn't a bad thing you could say about it. The owners Kent and Karm are on top of their game when it comes to helping run wedding day and keeping the whole venue top notch. More...
We had our wedding here this past weekend and it was PERFECT! Karm and Kent and the rest of the crew went above and beyond to make sure our day was everything we've dreamed of and more. I cannot say enough good things about this venue, the people and just the all around atmosphere. So blessed that we were able to get married here. � More...
I cannot put in to words how wonderful our experience was with Crooked River Weddings. Kent and Karm were absolutely amazing to work with. The entire planning process was a breeze with Karm at my side, and wedding weekend was completely stress free as they helped handle everything, and I mean everything! Our wedding was June 24, 2017 and it was a dream come true. We hit some hiccups in the road (like insane flooding) but this crew was professional, courteous, and had perfect solutions. The venue was gorgeous and we received countless compliments from guests. Hands down, one of the best decisions we made regarding our wedding. Thank you Crooked River! More...
We got married on June 17, 2017 and it was a dream come true! Kent, Karm, Kelsey & Nathan were there to help the whole day to ensure everything went smoothly. We even had our ceremony all set up down by the river and had to move everyone up to the "Rain Ceremony" location right before the start time. Once again, the four of them were there to help. The most beautiful venue in Central Michigan Thank you for all you have done for Grant & I, we are forever grateful! More...
I was married here last week and it was a top of the line experience. Worth ever single penny, rain or shine it's beautiful. The owners, Kent and karm go above and beyond and treated me like family. They really genuinely cared and did everything in their power to ensure that our wedding day was amazing and everything I envisioned. It's rare to find vendor owners that actually care about their clients and work as hard as they do. They are passionate about this property and that everyone has a safe and wonderful experience. I would recommend anyone to Crooked river weddings. More...
I was a bridesmaid in my best friends wedding, June 9, 2018. I cannot say enough about how wonderful and accommodating Kent and the crew was. Kent was available during set up the night before and helped in any way he could. The venue was BEAUTIFUL. The ceremony was held near the water and was the perfect spot for pictures! After the ceremony guests were guided back over the bridge and up to the barn. Kent and his crew really thought of everything and if he did not have it he went out of his way to ensure the bride and groom's big day was everything they imagined it would be. He and his wife even walked up to the head table as everyone was getting dinner to bring the bridal party drinks! I would recommend this venue to anyone who is looking for a romantic rustic wedding venue. More...
I was married on July 14th at Crooked River and everything was absolutely amazing. The ceremony and reception was beautiful and we received compliments about the venue the entire evening and still are! Kent and Karm were the BEST hosts and made sure we had everything that we needed for our day to go perfectly, which it did! Our ceremony musician backed out last minute and Kent made sure to take care of it! They constantly asked what more I needed help with and took care of everything that I missed. Right before the ceremony, Kent calmed me down and ensured me everything would be perfect, and Karm made sure that my dress was fluffed and I was ready before I waked down the aisle. They truly treated me like a princess and made me feel like family. Kent and Karm were on top of everything and also provided special services for our grandparents to make sure that they arrived to the ceremony site safely. I highly recommend Crooked River for your wedding, The Russell's will go above and beyond to make sure that your day is everything you ever imagined.
Thank you so much for everything Kent & Karm, our big day was easily the best day our lives!

This venue was absolutely wonderful! The grounds are stunning, with the flowing river, bridge, tree swings and barns. The wedding we attended was unseasonably warm-80 degrees for end of September, so it was a little warm at the beginning of the reception with no air conditioning, but by evening it had cooled off and was very enjoyable!
I can not say enough about this truely magical Venue. My sonJordy and his bride Cat had their wedding of their dreams July 14 2018. Kent and his wife Karm are the owners and they catered to our every need to make sure that the wedding was everything they wanted it to be. They are great people, made us all feel welcomed. Thank so much for all your help and making the kids have a wedding never will never forget. We've had many say it was the most beautiful wedding they have ever been to. �� More...
We were married here in fall 2017 and Kent, Karm and crew were nothing short of amazing! They were professional, accommodating and fun! They treated us like family. I met Kent for the first time (in person) when we came to set up on Friday and was greeted with a hug—where else do you get that?! The facilities are so unique and beautiful. Our pictures were phenomenal thanks in part to the venue itself!! We had so many compliments and so many guests that told us they just wanted to wander around and could not sit still because there was so much to look at and enjoy. Some of our vendors were first timers to the barn and multiple members of their teams also gave compliments to CRW as well. I would highly recommend your wedding or event here—You will not be disappointed!! More...
A wedding venue like no other! From the century old barn to the covered bridge over the winding stream, you'll find nothing to compare to the experience of Crooked River Weddings. The atmosphere is amazing and lends itself to an unforgettable event! Modern restrooms and a bar bring the convenience of an event hall to the beautifully lit barn so guest will be comfortable. The recent addition of the windmill further cements Crooked River Weddings as a wedding photographer's dream location! If you want a one of a kind experience, I highly recommend Crooked River Weddings for a truly unparalleled venue! More...

Our daughter was married at Crooked River last weekend. What an amazing venue. Our friends and family are still talking about the unique setting with the ceremony sight by the river and barn reception. Kent and Karm were so helpful and easy to work with. Wouldn't change a thing...I highly recommend Crooked River Wedding Venue in Gladwin! More...
My catering company had the opportunity to cater a wedding at Crooked River last weekend. This venue has a lot to offer and the owners really know what they are doing. They have left no stone unturned to provide a first rate experience for their clients. I see now why it books up so quickly. More...
Amazing Venue, great owners!
