Just had my wedding at Independence grove and it completely blew away my expectations. First of all, when you have an event here, an event coordinator sits with you to plan out every single detail to make your day perfect. This was so helpful, as Alyson executed every single detail from food, to linens, to decor placement, and even directing the bridal party and guests the day of. Planning a wedding came with no stress for me and my hubby because all we had to do was pick and choose what we wanted. The execution was impecable, the venue was stunning and magical, and the service was prompt and pleasant. Independence Grove can make your event happen exactly the way you dreamt it. Thank you to all the staff there for delivering beyond wonderful service.Sent on 09/14/2018

We could not have asked for a better venue! The location is absolutely beautiful and the catering (Catering by Michael's) was delicious. Every single step was handled with care and the staff are truly devoted to making sure that your wedding is perfect. Alyson (senior event coordinator) was fantastic! There are not enough words to describe how much she was crucial to planning/making sure that our wedding went without a hiccup.Sent on 10/11/2018

The venue and pictures sold me the place even before I talked to anyone. But the service after just made it all that much more perfect!Both Alyson and Marta were amazing! We had our wedding this past Friday and everything turned out beautifully! I was 5 1/2 months pregnant and I could not be more grateful that alyson was who I chose for the day of coordinator! Everything even with some hiccups moved smoothly! I had more complements on the venue and set up, how lovely everything was, how the staff was great, the food was amazing!! They truly know what they are doing. We were giving advice and recommendations when we were unsure of what to do. I could not be more pleased with how things went! Thank you so much!!
