We love catering at the Frauenthal Theater and the Hilt Building. They have several amazing event spaces for both receptions and ceremonies. They are all unique and offer so much to couples getting married. Heather is absolutely amazing to work with and she is so organized and detail oriented. Would recommend this facility to any future bride!!!
Love, Love, Love the elegance and charm that the Frauenthal Center has to offer. The diversity of venue's can fit every event.... from the stage, to the 2nd floor art gallery to Johnson Hall. It's all there - located in the heart of downtown Muskegon with lodging right across the street you can't go wrong.
