    Great Venue!

    Great venue to have a dream wedding! Everything went smoothly as it should. Olivia Franklin worked extra hard as our wedding coordinator to make sure what we had visioned was painted exactly as we wanted it done. The food is spectacular as well as the cake. We were able to do 2 different flavors as both my husband & I had our differences, which made us both happy! We had guests who were GF & VF they make sure the food that we had chose was met to the standards of their allergy regulations. Olivia always kept in contact with us to make sure everything is in order 2 weeks before our wedding. Overall, we had the best wedding!

    JW Marriott Grand Rapids's reply:

    Thank you for the kind words, Kassondra! We're delighted to hear you had your dream wedding. It was an honor to celebrate with you!

    A bride here 100% recommending the JW Marriott Grand Rapids. For the couple looking for a sleek and modern venue, with great food, great service, and to top it all off, a great hotel stay, I recommend the JW. The wedding planning process with the JW will be stress free and enjoyable, thanks to the events director, Anna. She is extremely responsive, detailed, and organized. Anna answered every single one of my (silly) questions. We were engaged in September, decided on the JW in November, and had our dream wedding by June. This is all thanks to Anna and her help with the JW. She was fantastic with organizing the vendors, and contacted the Amway Grand bakery for our cake. Anna did everything, above and beyond, and we are very thankful for that.

Great place to have a reception. Everytime we dj there it is an awesome time. Highly recommend this to anyone looking to have a reception.

This venue has such a special place in my heart because we designed their very first wedding on October 12, 2007 just one month after opening. Since that time we have had the distinct honor of designing several unbelievable events. The entire staff is amazing and they make us feel like family the minute we walk through the door. I love the entire group at the JW! Thanks guys for featuring Alishan Fields wedding in your portfolio...what an honor!
