    Best night of our lives

    My wife and I researched and visited about 6 or 7 different venues in Baltimore City and ultimately chose the Grand, where we recently had our wedding reception in October of 2019. Overall, the experience was quite positive and we are very happy with the service and accommodations offered from beginning to end. First, the Grand was a convenient option, due to its affiliation with the Embassy Suites Hotel by Hilton. The Grand is connected on the 5th floor to the Embassy Suites Hotel. Guests staying at the hotel do not have to exit the hotel to access the Grand’s reception areas. The Grand reserved a discounted room block for our guests and were willing to adjust the size of our room block based on our number of guests. We were also given a two-night complimentary stay at the Hotel. Additionally, we were given Hilton Honors points for choosing this venue (which will later pay for half of our honeymoon).
    As for the wedding itself, the staff was extremely accommodating to our needs. Many of our guests were impressed by the Beef short rib entrée and the custom wedding cake was fantastic. There were several options to choose from for our cocktail hour and reception; and we ended up choosing The Marble Room and The Corinthian. My groomsmen and I got ready in a historic conference room, that also happened to be a significant scene in the Netflix series “House of Cards”. The Grand has a very regal atmosphere that’s rich with history and looks classy throughout the entirety of the building, making for excellent photographs; just make sure to let your photographer know that the interior is a bit dark, so additional lighting may be necessary.
    Overall, we were treated with the utmost professionalism. Any issues that arose were handled promptly by the staff. We highly recommend working with Jacqueline Hannah as she gave us the white glove treatment. Thank you for helping host one of the best nights of our lives!

    There is not enough words I can say about this venue and Mrs. Nina who assisted us on our special day! I came across this venue last March and fell in love! Mrs. Nina made sure my husband and I were well taken care of throughout our whole process! The saddest part about our we wedding being over is not having to talk to Mrs. Nina almost every day. Whatever we wanted, needed, didn't want or need she made sure my husband and I were satisfied with our day and we are. Our family and friends say that was THEE best wedding they've ever been to and it would not have been possible without Wedding Wire and Mrs. Nina! THANK YOU. THANK YOU. THANK YOU!!

    The Grand's reply:

    It was absolutely our pleasure! Your wedding was beautiful and you were a stunning bride. The entire staff at The Grand loved being a part of your special day!
