    If I could go back I would choose The Grand over and over for my venue location. They are absolutely amazing and take the stress out of everything for the day of your wedding. You have to use their list of caterer's and DJ's which at first, I was upset that I was limited to their options, but after some of my friends spent many hours trying to find a caterer, DJ, and baker I knew my life was much easier with their limited options. It took the stress of researching and comparing pricing out of the equation. They responded to all of my questions and were very flexible with all of my requests. They are a family run business and I would recommend The Grand to anyone who is having a wedding in the future.
