This place is amazing for the price . They are dedicated more to old school vintage but are very flexible to whatever you want. The security the day of the wedding was a little off. We did have other people from another event that day crash a few minutes but it was taken care of.

The Grand Prospect Hall is an awesome venue. Everyone that we worked with was friendly, especially Denise, who was unbelievably helpful, understanding and extremely professional. She was always willing to accommodate any of our requests and was always there to offer advice when needed. We believe that having The Grand Prospect Hall in as our venue is what kept us calm and happy not just during an entire wedding day but all 6 months of preparation!! We received a lot of compliments for both the venue and the food. They were even willing to add some special menu items that we requested (signature cocktail drink, etc) and not requested. Denise even made them run out to get the Red Bull for my husband from the grocery store in the middle of the evening.
The cake baker has created a beautiful cake. We have asked for the special design, and he made it happen! We loved it!
We can't think of anything that we would have wanted to or happen differently. They listened to what we wanted and actually made it happen!!!

We had a really great wedding. Denise took care of everything from the start and we felt very much at home. After reading some of the reviews I noticed some comments of the negative nature. My review is going to be realistic. Anything with as many moving parts as a wedding much have a glitch here and there. It is the nature of the beast. But throughout the whole process Denise took care of everything and we were pleasantly surprised with both her and Tom someone making it all go off without a hitch. As f as pricing they cannot be beat. The hotels are all a ripp off also. The food at GPH was unreal and cannot be replicated. I am a very difficult person to say the least but I felt they really take their jobs serious and do everything possible to make your day go off without any major issues. And remember they are there 24/7 unlike some other places we checked out. Overall grade A.

When we signed the contract, Eric was our wedding coordinator. He was an absolute pleasure to work with. Welcoming, professional, accommodating, and really nice. He had promised certain things (complimentary runner, $15 vendor and kids' meals, etc). Unfortunately, a few months later he had to take a leave of absence due to complications from a surgery. Denise had taken over his clients for the time being. And Denise...wow. I have never met a ruder person in my life. Never. We had already signed a contract, otherwise we probably would have left. She was extremely forward, inflexible, and rude. There were times when she would blatantly look annoyed and yell at me when I brought up a concern. I could not believe we were paying to be yelled at. I dealt with her a little as possible and passed the task onto my husband. We also came across issues when we told her what we were originally promised when signing the contract with Eric. And til this day, we still believe Eric would have honored his words if he were there. For instance, instead of being offered $15 vendor/kids' meals, the meals were 2/3 the price of adult meals. So each vendor/kids' meals ended up being ~$75. We did not get a runner. And each time we met wit her to go over details, we felt rushed. She also insisted on giving us only THREE candles per table, when we had the large round tables that seated 10 - 12 people. We had to purchase 75 additional candles and holders from amazon. We ended up providing the extra candles. Three candles per table? Are you kidding me? How much do candles cost anyway?? We're paying for this venue! She was unwilling to compromise with us on any terms. It was awful!

Our maitre`d, Tom, was really wonderful though. The wedding night was hectic, but he was calm and kept things together. He was the complete opposite of Denise.

The ceremony room, cocktail room, and reception room were beautiful on our wedding night. But part of it is because our DJ had done a wonderful job with the lighting and we had brought in our own chair covers/table cloths. Their selection was limited and not at all the look I was going for. They offered to order the material we wanted, but it ended up being cheaper for us to purchase and bring in our own table cloths. They charge $4/chair cover and i think $12/table cloth. I don't remember the cost of their table cloths exactly. But to purchase the chair covers, we paid $2 a piece (satin). We also bought table cloth for $9 each (satin).

We were also really disappointed with the food. I would rate it a 5/10. My guests said their steak were dry and tasteless. My salmon was also dry and tasted fishy. My husband also did not enjoy his chicken. We were also promised a champagne march. Denise had written it down during our meeting and it was in our contract. This did not happen. Denise had gone home right after our ceremony.

I would refrain from working with this venue if Denise is your coordinator. Even if Eric returns from his leave and becomes your wedding coordinator, I would suggest having them put on paper that Denise cannot be the replacement. Alice, the owner, is also rude. But nothing compared to Denise. Her mannerism is awful. I have never and hope to never meet someone like her.
