Amazing food and staff!
Getting married at The Great Lakes Culinary Center was one of the best decisions we made. Having 6 months to plan, Erika and Taylor were extremely helpful the entire way. From lots of back and forth customizing our menu, to answering hundreds of questions big and small, and making sure day off that everything went just the way we envisioned. As for the food, this was one of our biggest priorities for our big day and boy did they ever deliver! We received so many compliments in regards to our customized charcuterie board, passed apps, ravioli station and carving station. If you're looking for an amazing outdoor ceremony, incredible yet cozy ambiance for the reception, and great food/people, this is it!Sent on 10/09/2019

I hired GLC for my wedding and they did a great job! I received several comments from the guests about how good the food was and the bartenders were wonderful that evening, too. GLC was very thorough in the planning and preparation, as well. I’d highly recommend them!Sent on 09/22/2019

A unique venue with a team that really knows their stuff
Great Lakes Culinary Center- I knew as soon as I saw this venue that it was the one for me. The space was just the right size, the aesthetic, from the barn wood wall, to the exposed kitchen, was exactly what I wanted for my brunch wedding. I had my ceremony outside on the patio. Beautiful tulips had been planted for the spring's events, and the big tree back there just happened to be flowering the day of the wedding! Erika and Taylor were really helpful in planning and answered all of my questions. Chef Reva put together a phenomenal menu for us. I got so many compliments on the food. The day of, the whole GLCC team pulled off everything with style and grace. Everything went perfectly on my wedding day, how many people can say that?Sent on 06/24/2019
