    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!

    Absolutely Amazing

    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!

    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!

    Hannah! Thank you so much for your sweet words.
    Your wedding was SO SO SO beautiful! From the extra sting lights to the floral ceiling installation...you have such a beautiful eye for detail. We loved the way the venue looked so much we had a 3D tour done the morning of your big day.

  • Perfect Reception Mobile DJ Service Wedding DJs

    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 Catering Co. Wedding Caterers

    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.
