You can't go wrong..
We planned a Michigan wedding...from Oregon. Kylie is a dream and helped us plan from start to finish. Her attention to detail and fun personality made our planning process SO MUCH EASIER. For our wedding size, we chose the Kindel Room and it was PERFECT. Honestly, the space itself is so amazing it took minimal effort to beautify. I would absolutely recommend doing your research, but just know you can't go wrong with this space and this team!Sent on 01/16/2020
Goei Center's reply:Katie, THANK YOU for your sweet sweet words! Seriously, it made my day :) You and Kevin made my job so easy because you were both so great to work with! I cannot wait to see photos. You made such a BEAUTIFUL bride! Congratulations and best wishes!!!

The Goei Center is not only a beautiful venue but the staff (office staff and maintenance staff) are beyond helpful, very knowledgable, and so accommodating. Working with Kylie made the wedding planning so much easier than I could've ever anticipated. Kylie listens to every detail and every insane request and can somehow envision it herself and will provide tips or just plain reassurance that it will all come together perfectly (and beautifully). Kylie is such an awesome person to work with and was always there at a drop of a hat for me (phone, email, text, in person). I'm so beyond grateful to have worked with her and the Goei staff for the most important day of my life!Sent on 11/07/2019
Goei Center's reply:WOW Audrey! You just made our day for sure (happy crying over here)!!!! It was such an amazing experience working with you and Kevin! Every little touch was so special from the cranes to the chandeliers and everything in between. We are beyond honored to be a part of such a special day. Thank you for being such a great couple to work with. We hope you enjoy the married life- it's the BEST! Congratulations XOXO

Best Venue Ever!
Working with the Goei Center was absolutely amazing, start to finish. They were very attentive and available to answer all of my questions and meet with me anytime. We had the opportunity to work with Kylie as our Wedding Coordinator and we could not have asked for a better experience!Sent on 11/20/2019
Goei Center's reply:Hannah! Thank you so much for your sweet words.
The Goei Center is a former factory that's been repurposed as a banquet/special events facility. So it is very unique, with lots of wood and brick throughout. I have DJ'd several events at the Goei and have been impressed every time.
The Goei Center is such a unique facility that allows each client to really make the space their own! The staff is top notch and always goes above and beyond for each client. Lindsay is so helpful and you can tell she really wants every couple to have the best day of their lives. If you want to enjoy every step of the planning with your venue - choose the Goei Center! You and your guests will not be disappointed.
We love working with the Goei Center! The venue is beautiful and the staff is excellent and friendly. We have done many weddings there, the organization and scheduling is fantastic and definitely helps the day of a wedding go along smoothly. We recommend the Goei Center and will certainly continue to do so!
