    Beyond my highest hopes!

    I am the mother of the Bride.

    The bride is the youngest of our three daughters.

    This winter wonderland reception had to be perfect.

    Shannah, Leighton, Chef and the staff absolutely NAILED IT!!

    The Grand is a well oiled machine. Shannah is prompt and efficient, returning emails and phone calls quickly, taking care of endless details and ensuring that our wedding weekend ran smoothly and beautifully. The touches the entire staff put on the reception we鈥檙e amazing, the food Chef prepared was hot and delicious and attractively plated.

    We surprised everyone with an appearance from Brutus Buckeye. It was carried off perfectly!

    If I could change one thing, it would be鈥OTHING!! I am still floating from the fantastic experience we had at The Grand!

    Incredible!

    The minute we walked in to the center we knew we wanted to get married there. I love how the pricing is transparent and per person! We invited 260 people and had 200 attend so this was the perfect space to accommodate all of us. I can鈥檛 say enough good things about Shannah. Her guidance and recommendations helped so much! I was a little bummed about not getting to use the gorgeous courtyard since it was 30 degrees the day of our wedding but it was still a great place for photos they look magical!

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.
