“Chris and Betty - THANK YOU both so much for helping make our wedding day the beautiful, fun, and unforgettable celebration it ultimately was. From beginning to end, the wedding planning process was made so much easier and more fun with the both of you on our team. The Thursday Club will forever have a special place in our heart. Thank you both again for doing what you do!!”

Will & Aynsley, March 2019

“Matt and I woke up this morning, and all we could talk about was how perfect our wedding was. And that is in HUGE part to you both. Thank you for giving us the perfect venue, thank you for providing outstanding staff, and thank you for helping us make our dream wedding come true. I want to sing your praises from the mountain tops . . .”

Katharine C., October 2018

“We wanted to say THANK YOU so much for everything this past weekend. Everything looked fantastic, the staff was great and we couldn’t have asked for a smoother, more enjoyable day for our wedding.”

Jenn & Gavin C., November 2017

"Chris and Betty, just wanted to send you one more email to let you know how pleased we all were with the reception! It was fabulous! Everything went smoothly and Frank and I were able to spend all our time with our guests. Thank you so much for making it such a success. You and all your helpers were great and very easy to work with, and I will definitely refer the Thursday Club if I get a chance. Everyone said how beautiful and intimate the venue was, they loved it. Thank you again and have a very happy holiday season!"

Alice V., Mother-of-the-Bride, November 2015

“Eric and I are so appreciative of you, Betty and the rest of the team.  You all went above and beyond to make our day very special.  Thank you again!”

Amanda C., December 2014   

“Chris was fantastic from start to finish.  He answered every email, in a professional and really informative way, and worked with me every time I wanted to see the venue.  He made great vendor referrals, and did such a beautiful job in setting up the tables, and setting up the lights and crystals hanging from the tree.  Chris really made a huge difference in our wedding.”

Christie A., August 2014

“Chris, I am so grateful to have worked with such a caring individual as you.  Thank you for always taking the time to answer all of my questions and assure me of the success for the day-of.  The Thursday Club is blessed to have you."

Ellis C., June 2014

“Recently my daughter was married at the Thursday Club. It was truly an exemplary experience. The venue is exceptionally beautiful, and Chris and Betty are terrific. They were responsive to our needs, and anticipated what needed to be done. The day could not have gone any better, and my wife and I could not have been more pleased with the professionalism and expertise of Chris and Betty. The Thursday Club is the perfect wedding venue. Absolutely perfect.”

Leigh D., March 2019

“The hardest part about writing my reviews was knowing where to begin! I have so many wonderful things to say about the La Cañada Thursday Club, CR Designs, and the Rekdahls! You two helped make my wedding dream a reality. Actually, the wedding ended up being better than I ever dreamed. Thank you for all your hard-work, honesty, and knowledge in this industry. Several of my guests expressed interested in hosting their upcoming events at the Thursday Club so hopefully Spencer and I will see you two again in the future, as wedding guests!!” 

Amy E., March 2018

“Chris & Betty, you guys have been amazingly helpful throughout the whole process. Thank you so much for being part of our special day.”

Angie & Ryan R., November 2017

"Chris & Betty Rekdahl of CR Designs & Rentals at the Thursday Club were a joy to work with. Too many of the vendors we worked with were so cavalier and often made it quite clear that we were one couple among many others that were employing their services. Not so with Chris & Betty. While we know they must have been juggling multiple events, they always made us feel as if we were their only clients (or at least their most important ones). They were genuine, kind, and patient. Planning a wedding is something you only do once and they imparted their expertise to this pair of novices, never once making us feel silly for questions that were - in hindsight - pretty silly. In all, we cannot recommend them highly enough!"

George & Elaine A., January 2016

"CR Rentals & Designs crew were excellent. Communication, quoting, and walkthroughs were easy and fast. Our wedding was held at the La Canada Thursday Club, which they know inside and out. All our rentals were already set-up when the other vendors arrived. Chris, Betty and their crew remained in the venue throughout the event to make sure everything went smoothly. Their expertise and services helped make the big day worry-free!" 

Amanda M. & Geoffrey G., November 2014

“We wanted to thank you again for everything you and your wife and crew did, everything looked beautiful!  It really was a beautiful celebration.”   Mike M., August 2014

“Chris, we want to thank you for all the time and energy that you put into our special day at the Thursday Club.  We could not have asked for a more amazing day.  All your hard work and emails back and forth was greatly appreciated and the day would not have happened without you and all your hard work.”

Ashley & Andrew K., August 2013
