We had such an awesome experience with Saint C's. Because our wedding was during Art Prize (and Saint C's is an Art Prize venue) we expected at least some bumps. There were none! Carla, our main contact, was incredibly helpful throughout the process. We viewed the venue multiple times and she was always patient, flexible and willing to help. The day of staff did an awesome job managing our event. If you haven't been inside, go look. It's beautiful. The facilities are well maintained and despite the high level of foot traffic for our day the staff did a great job of keeping everything looking beautiful. We had full usage of the parking lot (which they limit access to) as well as the dressing rooms. The only thing we'd change about our experience are the limited vendors they allow for providing alcohol (hence the 3 for flexibility).

Carla did a great job making sure everything was perfect for our wedding ceremony! We had the blue room and it was perfect for our small wedding of 50 guest. The lighting and color in the room was beautiful, romantic and was ideal for an evening wedding. Carla was great at returning my emails and phone calls. Thanks Carla!

This is a beautiful venue for a wedding in downtown Grand Rapids. They have several spaces; we had our ceremony in the President's room on the main floor, and then the reception upstairs in the ballroom. Many of our guests remarked about the grace and loveliness of the building. I found Carla wonderful to work with - we were able to change our ceremony room only weeks before the ceremony when we realized our guest list would let us move into a smaller, more intimate space for the ceremony. The classic decor and the brilliant light of the venue in the ballroom do not necessitate much additional decoration. Some nice tablecloths, a few floral arrangements, and everything looks lovely.

Carla was very helpful and always available to answer even the smallest of questions (large to us). The understated elegance of the late 1800's building contributed to a classic, lovely atmosphere for our daughter's wedding ceremony & reception. I would highly recommend using St. Cecilia Music Center for your event.
