Independence Grove was the absolute perfect place to have our wedding! My wife wanted a place that had a "nature" atmosphere and IG was absolutely beautiful with the lake and all the trees surrounding the hall. Inside couldn't have been nicer with all the windows, candles, and indoor fireplace. The outdoor patio was also amazing with an outdoor fireplace and plenty of space for people to congregate and take in all the beautiful scenery.

As for the event coordinator. Alyson Vondruska was an absolute pleasure to work with! I can't possibly describe how nice our experience was with her. She was very prompt with communication and answering all of our questions. There is so much planning involved with a wedding and she was with us every step of the way to make us feel comfortable and all be on the same page. She was even there the night of to ensure everything went smoothly. Again, I couldn't speak more highly of her!

Now for the main event.. I have never received more compliments on how perfect our wedding was! Every guest there that night said that we had the BEST FOOD EVER! All the cooking is done in house, so food doesn't come out in heated cart like I've seen at other places. All meat was cooked to a perfect medium rare, presentation was perfect, and the tastes were simply incredible. The late night "taco bar" simply topped off the perfect night of food!

The service from the staff was top notch! They paid careful attention to my "dietary needs" guests and ensured that they received the appropriate meal. They always had a smile on their face and were just very courteous to everyone!

Typically there is always some "hiccup" during one's wedding. I can honestly say that our experience with Events at Independence Grove was flawless from start to finish! I really wish I could experience the entire night again! I cannot recommend IG enough!
