About English Hills Event Centers

English Hills Event Centers is a full-service wedding venue that is located in Comstock Park, Michigan. This unique establishment is pleased to host a variety of ceremonies and receptions on their property. They have been in operation for over 35 years and continue to provide exceptional food and event accommodations in the Greater Grand Rapids area. Whatever a couple desires, English Hills Event Centers strives to deliver.

Facilities and Capacity

English Hills Event Centers has a selection of six distinct rooms as well as two event facilities. These spaces hold a range of 40 to 500 guests, depending on the arrangement. There are also three gardens where couples are able to hold their ceremony. The Terrace Garden is a lush, green area that holds a capacity of 220 guests. Alternatively, the courtyard is a bricked patio that can host 150, all of whom can admire the landscaped ground beyond the arch. The Rose Garden is an expansive, carefully curated garden space that allows enough room for 800 guests to attend a ceremony. Indoors, couples and their guests will still have views of the greenery beyond, but they will be sheltered from otherwise unpredictable weather events.

Mocktail drinks are also available. Add-on services can include chair covers and sashes, table runners, a wall of lights, an LCD projector, and a screen.

    Best Venue Ever!

    Kim and her staff were fabulous! Kim checked in often and was always there when we had questions. She always had time to meet with us in person. Kim made us feel very welcomed. The event center was gorgeous and staff on the wedding day were very attentive and genuinely excited for us. Very affordable! Thank you to all staff and Kim for being with us every step of the way. We highly recommend English Hills!

Event Coordinator

Hey there,
I'm Alex, the event coordinator at English Hills Event Centers. Thanks for checking us out!
A little bit about me- I am a married mama to three children and I have a strong passion for planning events. While planning my own wedding, I realized how much I enjoy the process of planning events and knew I needed to help other people do it as well. This is exactly how I got started in this position. Booking with English Hills means you have me on your side and I promise that's something you want while planning your wedding.
I look forward to learning how I can help with your day.
