Whatever a couple desires, English Hills Event Centers strives to deliver.
Facilities and Capacity
English Hills Event Centers has a selection of six distinct occasional 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.
English Hills Event Centers has a team of highly-skilled staff members that endeavor to accommodate anything that a client needs. Complimentary items include white linens, a head table, dinner tables, multi-purpose tables, chairs, a dance floor, a microphone, flatware, china, glassware, table numbers, service staff, cake cutting, parking, and both setup and cleanup. They also provide cuisine and drinks for receptions and other wedding occasions. Drink examples include lemonade punch, a champagne toast, a sangria bar, and a hot chocolate bar. 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.
English Hills Event Centers is located beside West River Drive Northeast, next to Bier Distillery. It's north of the Grand Rapids city center and is easily accessible via Highway 131, northbound. Grand River is a stone's throw from the property and overnight accommodation options are nearby.

SPECTACULAR!!...if there is a word more descriptive than this, it slips me at the moment. Speaking from the mother of the bride's point of view, I can tell you that upon meeting Linda, the wedding coordinator in charge of both facilities, I immediately admired her warm approach and enthusiastic energy. One can tell from the get go, that she truly LOVES what she's doing, believes in the flawless customer service she and her staff can provide, gives gentle guidance to couples and their families who are wrestling with too many decisions to be made all at once, BUT still leaves the final decision up to her client(s), and has a talented eye for detail! Often times, she works well beyond the normal 9-5 workday (ie. checking and answering emails from home, etc.), and is willing to be flexible around the client's busy schedule. Her staff is next to none, working tirelessly on set up, last minute changes, preparing & providing excellent, palatable food service, bartending and tear-down...all with a smile on their faces. This translates into your guests feeling comfortable and welcome at your celebration! Really? When you think about it, isn't that a top priority on anyone's entertaining list? This venue DELIVERS and gets my 100% stamp of satisfaction!! Thank you, thank you, Linda & staff for making my daughter's dream wedding a reality!Sent on 08/12/2014
