    Beautiful Venue, Excellent Service

    Everyone raved about the venue. It is beautiful and welcoming. The staff was wonderful. From the planning details to the execution the day of the event. I can't express how impressed I was with everything. I have received so many compliments from the guests. They loved it.

    Worth every penny

    We got married at TCP on 12/7/19 and we would do it all over again 100 times over. BOOK EARLY! This is a hot venue for good reason.

    Our coordinator Stephanie was sweet, organized and thorough throughout the 1.5 year planning process. Every question answered (some before I even asked them), every accommodation made and every worry subdued.

    The venue is beautiful and very little decor is needed which is why we loved it! Less work! They also assist with set up and tear down for you (try finding a venue like that anywhere else!).

    Because the venue is so popular I was worried our experience would've feel unique or special (there was literally a wedding the night before ours) but they really put all their attention and love into YOUR special moment that you feel like the only bride of the year.

    Going down the freight elevator is a must! Getting ready onsite in the suite, also a must! Do it all, you won't regret it. Just take every moment in because you wont want it to end.

    My grandma is still texting me things like "I can't believe how neat that place is!" :)

    Do it. Just do it.

    Undoubtedly one of the best venue's in Grand Rapids with the best staff.

  • Enchantment DJ & Photo-booth Services Wedding DJs

    Definitely the hottest venue in Grand Rapids this past year, and looking to be hot for a while! Excellent location, and a really great looking facility. Plenty of space both upstairs and down!

  • Heritage Hill String Quartet Wedding Musicians

    This is a great venue for a wedding. Our string quartet has performed at The Cheney Place mulitple times. The space has a warm feeling with lots of light and rich hardwood floors. The place settings for the latest reception were just beautiful -upscale shabby chic. Good parking too - much easier than in the center of downtown Grand Rapids.
