The Goei Center was exceptional from beginning to end. From our first contact to our big day, all went smmothly. We had wonderful support and guidance all along the way. Michaela was a fabulous contact person who made us feel welcomed. She was so patient, kind, and quick at communication. The venue itself is gorgeous, elegant, spacious, classic, the list goes on and on...Sent on 12/05/2018

Beautiful Venue with LOTS of Charm!
The Goei Center was the perfect spot for our wedding! We had a little over 100 guests - the space didn't seem too cramped and it didn't come across as empty either. Lots of modern/industrial charm in this venue!Sent on 06/25/2019
The Goei Center's reply:Thank you for such a kind review Lindsy! We loved having you here in our space! Hope the first month of marriage has been nothing but the best for you and Travis!

Great staff and service!
We loved having our reception at the Goei Center! The staff was so friendly, helpful, flexible, and truly made the day special for us. Everything turned out so beautifully, and it was nice not to have to worry about anything. Having the two separate rooms was perfect, we were able to have cocktail hour in one and dinner and dancing in the other. I do think they are a bit on the pricy side, but with how great they are to work with and how much they do, it was worth it.Sent on 07/24/2019
The Goei Center's reply:Thank you for such a sweet review Jordan!! We love hearing that everything turned out just the way you dreamed and we are so happy you did not have to worry about a thing - that is always our goal!! You and Cory were SO great to work with! Wishing you both nothing but the best!
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!
