My husband and I were the first couple to hold our reception at this location and it was perfect! Our friends and family were so impressed at how beautiful this venue was. It's truly a hidden gem for weddings and receptions!

When I initially contacted The Gardens at Grices to inquire about there ceremony services, their event consultant, Kristen, was incredibly helpful and accommodating. She assured me that she would be able to set up my decorations the day of and that she would be on hand the day of the wedding to offer help as needed. Fast forward to 1 month before the wedding. I came in to pay off my balance and check on some last minute questions and was informed that Kristen no longer worked there. I had to re-negotiate details that I had once been assured of. Although we were not having our reception there, we had originally worked out a deal allowing us access to the hall as a back up rain location, and as a place to get ready for an additional fee. When I went in to pay the balance, the new consultant informed me that I would have no access to the hall (and therefore no where to get ready). Upon closer inspection of the contract she determined that we would have access to the hall, but there was no place to get ready. After I explained that the original consultant had pointed to an area for me to get ready, she conceded that we could get ready in the back office. The day of the wedding, the event consultant was no where to be found. Instead the owner was the only staff on the premises, and therefore the hall was locked when we arrived to get ready as he was setting up my decorations. There was no one to direct my guests to the back lot for parking and so many of them mingled in the hall until the ceremony was to begin, causing our ceremony to begin 30 min late. While I was very pleased with the beauty of the location and the price, I was not pleased with the professionalism of the staff or their level of service. I would recommend Grice's to another bride, but I would encourage anyone who is interested not to rely on the staff for anything, because although I expected to have their staff present to make the day flow smoothly, all I really had was a location.
