My fiance and I were on the hunt for a historical building with a great venue. The moment we walked in to the Grand 1401 1st floor ballroom I was IN LOVE! It is exactly what I had in mind for a beautiful ballroom. We were given a tour by Liz, and she was very friendly, personable, and professional. She was able to answer every question and concern we had. We are so excited to be using this venue on our wedding day!Sent on 12/12/2017

Liz and Amy at The Grand 1401 are amazing. I couldn't have done all of this without their help. They were available to me and my vendors whenever we needed them. The building is beautiful and the 10th floor has such a stunning atmosphere that you forget that you are in Fresno.Sent on 03/04/2015

Beautiful place for your wedding
I love working at the Grand 1401. The classic feel to this historic location makes events there truly amazing. When I am hired to do UpLighting at this venue... it makes the beauty of this building really shine.
This building is stunning! If you are looking for a indoor venue, you have found the right one! Absolutely gorgeous, and a enjoyable staff to work with! Love it!
