We were penciled in at a different venue... but then we went and saw the Grain Exchange and met with Maria and we KNEW right away that it was the place we wanted our wedding reception to be at! The building and room are absolutely gorgeous and so we didn't need to spend a lot of extra money on decorations, chair covers, etc. It is ornate and beautiful on its own. The food was outstanding - we got so many compliments from our guests about how delicious their meals were and how great the service was. The staff there is extremely professional. And lastly, Maria was just the BEST to work with. She is quick at responding to emails during the planning process and she goes over every detail to make sure everything is perfect. She is a pro at what she does. Many of my guests told us that it was the coolest venue they had ever been at!Sent on 08/23/2014

From the moment we stepped into the BEAUTIFUL Grain Exchange and given the tour by John, we knew this was where we wanted to have our wedding reception. Katie, John, and Maria are knowledgeable, friendly, professional and attentive. Katie was our main contact throughout the planning process and she is quick, efficient, organized, and has excellent communication! We truly enjoyed working with her from beginning to end. Not only are Katie, John, and Maria excellent at what they do, but also their catering/servers, bartenders, and every staff member were so professional & friendly, attentive, and detail-oriented. Chef is PHENOMENAL & the food was amazing from the hors d'oeuvres, salads, entrees, desserts, and late night -- you cannot go wrong with any option. Our guests were raving about the food and how it was the BEST food they've had a wedding! Thank you for making our wedding reception a night to remember for all!Sent on 06/04/2019
