  • It is truly a pleasure to work with Woody and his team at Crux Events. It is not only great to work with consummate professionals, but also good friends. Their attention to detail, meticulous planning and can-do attitude makes everyone’s life easier at every major event we work on together. It is one of the reasons we keep coming back to team up with Crux year after year.

  • The General Manager at Sunnyside said this was the best, most visually stunning event he has ever been to and he has been working there for the 17 years.  He said your stage / lighting layout will now be how they recommend how to stage upcoming events and weddings.

  • Ideas are a dime a dozen. It's the follow-thru and execution that makes and takes a concept to reality. We've done numerous events with Woody and the Crux team. They underscore what turn-key implementation is all about.

  • We are on our honeymoon in Bali but I wanted to let you know that the design was absolutely AMAZING!!!  You blew Jon and I out of the water with everything. We had no idea it would look that spectacular and are so grateful for everything you did. We thank you for making our wedding day better than we ever imagined!

  • Crux Rocks!  Always professional, an excellent resource for specialty event rentals and custom design.  We love to work events when Crux is involved, knowing that the set-up will be awesome, the crew will be a pleasure to work with and, most importantly, the clients and guests will be thrilled with the results.

  • We have been using Crux Events for any events at the Chalet, almost exclusively, for the past 3 years.  They are always very friendly, professional, and thorough, and my guests are always ecstatic with the final product.  I have never had one issue or mistake with them, which is nearly impossible to say in the event industry! I highly recommend them to anyone that is in need of rentals for their wedding or special event!

    Geoff Armstrong General Manager, Stanford Alpine Chalet
  • Crux Events is an event planner’s best partner. I have worked with Woody and his crew for the past few years and trust my events to no one else. Not only are they fun to work with, but they are PROFESSIONALS in every aspect of the word. If I need something and they don’t have it – they find it.  OR better yet -THEY MAKE IT. If I have a last minute change, they adjust on the fly with a smile. From sound, to video, to lighting, to décor, they are my dream team. Thanks Crux – you make my life easy!
