I can not say enough great things to explain our experience in planning the wedding of our dreams. Ever since my husband and I first walked into The Grand we were greeted with smiles and professionalism that exceeded my expectations. We are beyond grateful. Colleen and Ed are fantastic and made everything simple and to the point. Everyone and I mean everyone enjoyed themselves and especially enjoyed the food. My husband and I are forever grateful!!

One word: amazing
I couldn’t wait to write this review. I can’t say enough good things about this venue! We just had our wedding on 10/13/18 and it was all we could ever had hoped for and more! Ed and Colleen from the start were amazing, weren’t trying to push us into using their venue and just went with the flow. They make you feel so comfortable and welcome you with open arms. Everyone kept raving about how much fun they had and how good the food was! They decorated how I told them to and went above and beyond for us the moment we met them. Colleen was my maitre d for the night since the other girl was sick and let me tell you she was the absolute BEST! She made sure I was having the best time ever and was always right there when I needed her. I assure you if you pick this venue you will not be disappointed! To this day(12/3/18) we are still getting compliments on the entire wedding and how nice our venue was.

On August 12 I married my best friend and our night was magical!!!! Colleen was exceptional.... She had the patience of a saint and she was able to calmly and professionally deal with all of my phone calls.... She went above and beyond the call of duty and so did Ed and all of the staff at the Grand at 1600 on our big day!!!! Everything was simply beautiful and I would recommend this venue and their services to anyone who wants their special day to memorable....
