Marta at EIG was an absolutely amazing person to work with. We chose this venue specifically because of her (in addition to the beautiful venue) due to her professional, organized, and knowledgeable service when we met her for our initial venue tour. Throughout the planning process she was able to keep us organized and on track, clearly and efficiently communicated with us, and answered all of our many questions no matter when we asked or how small the issue may have been. On the day of, she kept us calm as the weather was not cooperating with our plans. She worked so well with all of our vendors and we did not need to do anything at all during our wedding. We couldn't recommend Marta enough as well as Events at Independence Grove for a perfect wedding.Sent on 10/13/2019

Our Dream Wedding Come True!
We had our wedding here! I can't get over how absolutely perfect every single thing was! Marta, our event coordinator, was PHENOMENAL!!!!! I emailed her a ton and every single time she got back to me right away! She truly loves her job and put so much love and care into our big day. We love how much direction she helped to give us every step of the way. Our wedding would not have been the show stopper it was without Marta!!! I actually started to tear up saying goodbye to her at the end, because I truly miss her already! Getting married at Independence Grove with Marta by our side was the best decision we made in our wedding planning! If you're reading this, Marta, we love you!Sent on 05/31/2019

Excellent - Can't recommend highly enough
Fantastic venue in all ways. The space is beautiful, the food is excellent (we've gotten nothing but extremely positive comments), and the people are great to work with. I can't speak highly enough of Marta, who works incredibly hard and is committed to great service. I can't say anything that hasn't been said 100x by other reviewers - all good, don't hesitate to book if this place works for you.Sent on 10/30/2019
