    The Grand was the perfect place for my wedding! Everything turned out absolutely amazing and the venue was gorgeous! Our coordinator for the day, Brittany, was phenomenal and kept everything running smoothly! I couldn't be happier with how wonderful everything was! Definitely worth it to have a wedding at The Grand!
