They book up fast and you can't get in to decorate most likely until the day of the crow toon so hiring a wedding coordinator is a great idea! Very nice! And if you book early they lock in your prices!

I had originally had a venue booked closer to home. But i went to a bridal expo being held at The Grand and fell in love with it. I decided that day to move my entire wedding, a month and a half prior to, 1.5 hours south to have it in the amazing venue. There are 3 different rooms to book based on the number of guests you will have. We were able to book the room that gave us outside access to the gardens. The room was great and didnt require tons of decor to make it beautiful. I also chose to have my wedding there outside in the gardens. It is absolutely beautiful and has flowers, a bridge, ponds, waterfalls, and a gorgeous gazebo to make your ceremony and pictures amazing. They provide all the food, and have an extensive menu to choose from as well as great bar packages. They even made an ice sculpture of the bride and groom. (its generic but i told my guests it was us lol). The staff was so friendly and very accommodating. They do give you all the rules right up front and as long as you follow them, there are no problems. If you do an outside wedding, take the later time, or you will have to remove your things from the bridal rooms so that the next bride can come in. All in all, it was so worth moving my wedding. And, half the price of where i was going to be originally. It truly became the wedding of my dreams :)

Jennifer was amazing and extremely helpful in putting together our day! The food was excellent and the venue was put together wonderfully. I was very happy with how beautiful the gardens were and how beautiful the gazebo was. My family and friends keep talking about how beautiful my wedding was and I know it was large in part to the Grand!

The Grand was absolutly amazing! Jennifer was awesome t work with, since I just live around the corner she saw me frequently with questions and was always willing to sit down with me as questions came up.
the entire staff there is amazing the day of the wedding it was raining right until 4pm, the time the wedding was suppose to begin outside in the gazebo. At 4pm the staff came to me and said that it had just quit raining and to give them a few minutes to get everything wiped off so that we could get married outside. I though that was so amazing! they dried everything off and I was able to get married outside in the gardens like my husband and I had dreamed of. The entire staff was so friendly and accomodating the food I am still hearing compliments on and how great the service and atmosphere was. These people are great!

The outdoor gazebo was beautiful for an outdoor wedding. I loved it! However, I was really disappointed that there was nobody there to meet me for my rehearsal to fill me in on how things are typically set-up. Also, I was incredibly disappointed that I reserved the place from 1-3 including the bridal lounge, yet they removed mine and all my bridesmaid's stuff prior to our ceremony ending (which was well before 3pm). Everything was put on a cart in a hallway. I cannot imagine requiring brides to remove all their stuff prior to their ceremony! The bride is supposed to remain unseen and I thought that this was inconvenient and added a lot of unnecessary stress.

What can I say? My wedding was amazing and The Grand provided the location!

The room was ready to go at 8:30am when we arrived to decorate and the staff was amazingly responsive and helpful. We had a table problem (one extra, go figure!!) and it was taken care of FAST! The gazebo was beautiful and ready to go, as well.

Jennifer was SO HELPFUL! She assisted in getting together a customized alcohol package that fit my budget and my needs.

The food was great, too! Everything was fresh and yummy and the presentation was lovely even for a buffet-style!

The bar was active and stayed well-stocked. At the end of it all, the staff came to help us clean up. They were so friendly and great! The owner was with us as well and he was a wonderful gentleman.

Thank you, The Grand and staff for helping to make my day a dream come true!

We were recently married here on October 1, 2011 and we could not be happier with the service we received. Jennifer was great, as well as the gentlemen that run it. Anything you ask, they try to do for you. They were even willing to move our ceremony indoors when the weather did not quite cooperate. The Hearth Ballroom is beautiful, the food was great, the bar was great, everyone had a wonderful time!
