Hands down the best venue in Michigan. We looked all over the state for the perfect place and The Cheney Place exceeded every expectation we had. Prior to the wedding Jenna helped us so much with planning and designing everything we needed, she is absolutely an expert at what she does. The day of the ceremony everything was flawless thanks to all of the hard work behind the scenes. Our guests keep telling us it was the most beautiful wedding they had ever been to, and we have The Cheney Place and all the staff to thank for that, especially Jenna and Stephanie. We could not have imagined a better wedding day.

Our experience with TCP was top notch. First of all, the venue is incredible, gorgeous, and unique. We had hundreds of compliments from our guests. More importantly (now that I have been a bride) the TCP staff- Jenna and her team- were incredible communicators. Very organized, flexible, accommodating, and responsive. From planning stages all the way through the night of the event, they went above and beyond, and handled many small details of our event that took a great deal of pressure off of me and my "bride tribe".

Also, as a bride, the bridal suite is clutch. It was very nice to be able to get ready there and then have that spot as our "home base" all the way through the end of the event.

I strongly recommend TCP to any recently engaged couples! Congrats and good luck!

Oh also, we had our ceremony there as well, and the guests could not stop talking about my elevator entrance. What a unique touch!!

I don't even know where to begin to describe how amazing this space is. Not only is the rental space beautiful the people who work there are awesome to! The TCP staff made the vision for our wedding come alive. We were able to personalize the space to how we wanted, and that is exactly what we were looking for. The day of our wedding everything went smoothly with t he help of everyone who works there. We had many comments from our guest about how much fun they had and how beautiful the venue is. Thanks to the Cheney Place we had a perfect day!!

My husband and I looked around at many venues in Grand Rapids, but we truly fell in love with The Cheney Place the minute we walked in. Not only is the space beautiful and unique, but we could not say more about the staff and service we received. Leading up to our wedding, Jenna quickly responded to any questions we had (and there were many:)). She guided us on how to customize the space to fit us as a couple and our vision for our wedding. We were blown away on our actual wedding day by how much TCP staff did for us. We had both our ceremony and reception at TCP; on our wedding day, the space looked more beautiful than we could have imagined. Having the ceremony on the main floor, heading upstairs for the cocktail hour, and then back down to the reception went flawlessly. Heading into our wedding day, we knew our contract said the TCP staff would take down decorations, but we were unsure how much this actually entailed. At the end of the night, the staff literally picked up and boxed everything for us. We were then offered multiple dates after our wedding we could come by and pick things up. Not needing to clean at the end of the night was such a gift for us and our families. We cannot overstate how wonderful The Cheney Place was; they truly exceeded our expectations in every way!

Where to even begin? Our wedding at The Cheney Place was absolute perfection. The venue is so unique and the décor absolutely stunning. Our guests are still raving about its beauty and how they have never seen a building like it. What truly set The Cheney Place apart from other wedding venues are their staff and services. Jenna, the venue manager, worked with us throughout the planning process and was AMAZING. She was very prompt in response to emails or phone calls and pretty much guided us through making decisions with vendors, decorations, etc. I am so grateful for her because I am terrible with event planning and décor. Jenna helped me through everything from developing wedding timelines to the layout of ceremony and receptions. I always figured that for my wedding I would have to hire a wedding planner. However, with all of Jenna’s guidance and coordination, that wasn’t necessary. I pretty much got a wedding planner with my booking of The Cheney Place. Our decorations and ceremony/reception layout ended up looking far better than I would have ever imagined. Their staff is truly talented and so creative! We pretty much only told them our theme and gave them a few items we wanted displayed for decorations. The rest we told them to do whatever they needed to do to make it look nice and they beyond exceeded our expectations!
Another helpful service The Cheney Place provides is complete setup and takedown of all decorations, tables, chairs, etc. Even better, they can store it for you at the venue to pick up later so you don’t have to worry about it at the end of the night. Once I arrived there to get ready, I seriously did not lift a finger. Their staff handled everything and I could just enjoy the moment. I still can’t believe how stress-free our wedding was. I kept waiting for something unexpected or for something to go wrong and it never happened. Our wedding could not have been this perfect without the staff and services of The Cheney Place!

The lovely staff at TCP made our wedding day phenomenal, one we will never forget. We knew we were in good hands from the day we booked to the actual event. The level of professionalism, responsiveness, and flexibility from TCP gave our wedding party comfort and joy, further validating the value of the venue and its services.

We recently had our ceremony and reception at the Cheney Place and could not have been happier. With the help of Jenna and her awesome staff, our day went perfectly. Jenna was always very timely with her email responses and I never felt like I was bothering her with the (several) questions that randomly pop into your head. We had so many compliments from family and friends and were just so thankful that everything went so well. Thank you TCP!

Look no further! Jenna and her team were absolutely amazing! We live in the Detroit area so her responsiveness was extra helpful. Her team did everything from set up to tear down and had everything ready for us to pick up a couple of days after. We received so many compliments on the venue and we wish we could relive our big day over and over again!

We booked with the Cheney Place for our wedding, and so far have had really wonderful experiences working with all of the staff there. We have taken 3 tours total so far, and gotten valuable feedback about booking other vendors for catering, bar. All of the staff there have been professional, responsive, and really a pleasure to work with. We cannot wait to get married there and are very excited about our choice.
