New Guest Review - "Scenic & Ethereal ... Our Guests Were Blown Away"
Melissa (September 2018) - BC, Canada
In September 2017, my husband and I were married at Crescendo. From the moment we began our planning with the owner, we felt supported and encouraged.
Mitch has a helpful, flexible, and accommodating staff that takes care of the venue during the bike and ski season. As soon as we stepped foot inside Crescendo, we knew it would be the perfect place to stay during our wedding weekend and to hold our 120-person ceremony and reception. The indoor space gave a unique house party feel to our wedding and, due to the magnificent architecture of the chalet, décor was kept to a minimum with floral arrangements, greenery, and “enchanted forest” details.
Guests were able to hang out
- in the theatre room (where we positioned the main bar),
- in the great room (where staff removed all furniture and we made a dance floor with a DJ set-up),
- around the beautiful dessert table (dining room), and
- outside on the covered patio (where we had a band, a cocktail hour bar, and patio seating.
I was able to get ready in the master bedroom, which provided a perfect dressing room for the makeup artist, hairstylist, and bridal party to spend the afternoon.
The catering company (Details Catering) was familiar with the venue and took advantage of the modern kitchen area to create and serve canapés throughout the venue (we chose not to have a sit-down dinner).
The outdoor space at Crescendo provided a scenic and ethereal venue for the wedding ceremony. We were able to set out over 100 rented chairs, and the event company we hired (Blushing Pear Event Planning & Rentals) created an elegant aisle and arched area for the ceremony to take place.
At the end of the weekend, we didn’t want to leave the luxury of this chalet at Big White. Our guests were blown away by the magic of our wedding weekend at Crescendo.
If you are interested in getting married at Big White Ski Resort, Crescendo is the place to do it!
New Guest Review - "Best located & equipped place in Big White"
Jeremy (January 2018) - NSW, Australia
We had a fantastic week catching up and skiing with friends, and staying in an incredible house. I'd highly recommend the house for anyone looking for the best located and equipped place in Big White.
Things we loved:
The spa! You feel a little bit like a Rockstar when you sneak in an early afternoon spa while a ski instructor is 10 metres away showing off the house to his class. The lack of chlorine was super nice.
Theatre room, and movie library.
Kitchen incredibly well equipped, including condiments, etc. I want a sliding door fridge too at my house!
Ski locker and boot rack area were perfect.
Everything about the laundry, especially 2 dryers and 2 washers.
Tech, tech, and tech. So easy to micro-adjust every single thing: climate, spa jets, lights, speakers.
Welcome notes and guides from yourself and Sheila were thorough and comprehensive.
Honestly Mitch, we had a great week. There was enough space to hide from others if you needed to, as well as the room to get everyone together at the dining room and in the Great Room. I really appreciated your accessibility and the feeling that nothing was ever too much trouble for you and Sheila.
And the best part is my wife, who was ambivalent about a skiing holiday, loved it. Bodes well for future trips!
Thanks for everything
New Guest Review - "We Loved Everything About Crescendo"
Zaneta (January 2018) - British Columbia, Canada
Crescendo is a beautiful place. It was a perfect house for our family of 16 and we loved everything about it. The location is amazing, and the views breathtaking. Kitchen equipped with everything you need to prepare any meal and that's why we didn't even go once to dine out. We spent all our four evenings at the house as it’s equipped with so many different things to be not bored and be entertained. So much space, and you can’t really ask for more.
We really love Crescendo, and for sure we will be back in the future.
