Beautiful Venue and amazing staff
The Grove is first and foremost, a restaurant. We ended up stopping in for lunch and we’re so impressed with the food, that we decided to have our wedding in their ballroom and ceremony in their ballroom foyer. On the day of our wedding, Ted, the catering lead for our event, was absolutely wonderful! He went above and beyond to make sure that our event ran smoothly. I had so many people compliment me on how delicious the food was. We had a special request for the beef fillet and stuffed chicken for our main entrees. (TRY the stuffed chicken, you will not regret it!) We wanted a beautiful wedding, but didn’t want to spend $20,000+ for one day. We ended up paying around $6000 for the venue AND food AND alcoholic beverages. We received so much more than we bargained for at the Grove. Everything was absolutely amazing!Sent on 04/02/2021
