    Wedding Venue

    My husband and I cannot find the words to describe how truly grateful we are that we celebrated our big day at The Grand. The venue itself is everything we could have ever asked for with so much history and beauty within. But there is so much more that contributes to a beautiful wedding that the venue itself. From seamless communication, to making my detailed requests happen, to the amazing staff who served us on the day of- you guys truly have it all. We cannot thank The Grand enough for making our big day a success and we will forever cherish the memories made that night at The Grand. We highly recommend other couples to host weddings / events at this beautiful venue.

Chris Pappas
Chris Pappas
Chef Owner

Chris Pappas was raised in the restaurant business. He grew up watching his father prepare food in the kitchen of the restaurant his family-owned and eventually involved himself in every aspect and position as he grew older. From a young age, Chris knew that he wanted to be in the restaurant business and chose a path in higher education to prepare himself for the journey. Chris attended Purdue University, one of the top restaurant management schools in the country, and partook in some unforgettable internships during his time there. It was during this time that he fell in love with the kitchen and decided to continue his education experience and follow his true passion of the kitchen to receive his degree in culinary arts at the Culinary Institute of America (Hyde Park New York).

While in New York, Chris spent time at two Michelin rated restaurants, including Per Se in New York City with Chef Thomas Keller, and was there presented with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity at the world-renowned Chez Panisse in Berkeley, California with food activist Alice Waters. Chris’ entire outlook on life and food was transformed while working alongside some of the most brilliant minds and passionate individuals in the industry at Chez Panisse. Before leaving California Chris spent time in Napa Valley studying, tasting, and working with wine allowing him to achieve his first certification of The Court of Master Sommeliers.

Chris returned to New York to finish his degree in culinary arts and then returned home, to the place where it all began, to relieve his father of his duties at their family-owned restaurant. Shortly after he decided to open Provecho in 2017, a fine dining experience with a unique mixture of exquisite Latin American and Spanish culinary specialties, paired with expertly handcrafted drinks. In 2020, Chris and his team began operations as Grand Events in our historic downtown Court House to provide a facility for catering weddings, social, and corporate events.
