    Destination Wedding right here at home!

    I have run a ceremony venue in McKinney for several years, so when it came time for my wedding I initially wanted something far away and tropical- just so my friends and family could enjoy time together rather than focusing so much on "the event". However, after searching in several states and countries for the perfect little town where everyone could walk from place to place and entertainment was plentiful, I realized it was right here in McKinney.

    I also knew that The Grand had the intimate yet very elegant feel I wanted, as well as impeccable food and service. Still, even knowing how great they've been to all our clients in the past, I was absolutely blown away with my experience. I can't say enough about the entire staff, from Jacque at the front desk who helped us with guest accommodations to Allie who booked our reservation for The Ballroom to Megan who took absolutely wonderful care of us during the planning and meal selection process. I am so grateful to Rick Wells and his entire team.

    Although it wasn't a "destination" for me, most of our guests from the Dallas area as well as out of state booked rooms at either The Grand Hotel or the local B&B's near the downtown square. My guests loved the experience of staying downtown and walking with us to hear live music at the nearby restaurants and bars after the wedding, and then to brunch the next day. It was the "destination wedding" feel I wanted without having to get on a plane, and it was absolutely PERFECT.

    AMAZING, beautiful, and overall

    Words cannot describe how flawlessly our wedding day went. Megan and her staff are AWESOME and work so hard to ensure your day is perfect. The food, atmosphere, staff, and overall experience made this venue worth every penny. Guests can stay in the rooms surrounding the ballroom making it easy for you, your friends, and family to have a good experience as well. Definitely check it out if you’re looking to get married in the North Dallas area!

    Megan and her team were fantastic! She really helped us plan out our entire reception in the Ballroom. The food was perfect, the atmosphere was perfect, and I didn't have to worry about anything. Wonderful people, wonderful service.

Great venue and one we love to be invited to photograph at. The entire team is wonderful and very kind and they work hard at each event. The ballrooms are always pristine and presentable and they staff works hard on the little details like keeping drinks full and tables clean. We highly recommend this venue!
