    Rescheduled wedding due to Covid

    My daughter’s June 2020 wedding had to be cancelled and rescheduled due to the Pandemic. This was so stressful to us, but we were luckily able to reschedule it. We chose another date at The Grand Event Center. They had all precautions in place, so no one at anytime, felt unsafe . It is a beautiful Venue! The Ceiling lights are so unique, and having the ability to use the connected Courtyard with String lights, several sofas and tables to relax in, and a fabulous fire pit, all added to the experience! The food was fabulous, and we had so many guests including a food blogger in attendance, that raved about it! Presentation was also lovely! Since the Brides family is from another city, having the Courtyard Marriott connected , made it all so convenient for everyone! Kate Vondenhuevel, director of events, was so helpful in every way. She always returned e mails in a very timely manner, and had a lot of great ideas! If you are looking for a Venue in the Columbus area, you need to go and see this place!! We couldn’t have been happier with how it all turned out !

Kate Vondenhuevel

Director of Events

I am the lead event planner for all Grand Event Center Weddings! I love working with couples throughout the planning experience and seeing everything come to life on the Big Day. I am currently a bride getting married in 2021, so it is fun to bounce ideas off of our couples and to see them celebrating a day I am looking forward to very much! In my free time, you can find me walking my dog, Walter, or at a country concert.
