Everything was amazing! Food was great! Outside and inside was absolutely beautiful! Loved everything very happy! 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!
