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.

The Grand 1401 is a fabulous setting for any occasion, requiring very little in the way of additional decorating as the building is sophisticated, dramatic and offers an elegant venue. Shelli and Liz are both expedient and knowledgable in event planning and partner together to provide the upmost of service. My daughter's wedding was everything we dreamed it could be and more, and I recommend Grand without reservation.
