The Grand Concourse was an absolutely beautiful venue for our wedding. The actual reception was unbelievable, and our guests complimented the food, the beauty, and just overall the service of the night. It will definitely be a night that we will all remember. My family experienced a tragedy three days before the wedding, and so there were some last minute changes that the staff were very flexible and understanding with There was only one snafu of the night with the cake- the entire cake was supposed to be served, as well as the groomscake was supposed to be out with the wedding cake, but there was some kind of mixup. One of our tables did not receive cake because of it; however we had the donut service and that made up for it. We found out the next day that the top of the cake had not been cut. I am not sure if that was due to miscommunication from the bakery or what happened. My only other critique is that sometimes it seemed as though the responsiveness through email was slow prior to the two weeks before the wedding. Otherwise, this is a great place to have your reception if you want a unique, magnificent venue.
This was a most exceptional venue for our reception. The employees were very professional and everything went smoothly. It is a spectacular location for a wedding reception. Brian George, Event Manager, responded quickly with phone calls and answers. It was the most perfect wedding ever!
