There is so much I want to say about my incredibly FLAWLESS and MAGICAL experience. So, I will break it into sections:Sent on 01/26/2020
THE STAFF: The most wonderful people you will work with. Without a question, this staff is beyond words when it comes to how perfect they are. They are professional, EXTREMELY communicative (no email took more than a few hours to get a response), and SO SWEET,. They went above and beyond to make my day so perfect. And is absolutely was. They even went as far as drying off my dress with hand towels after taking photos outside in a winter storm. I mean, COME ON! WHO DOES THAT? They were so kind to my family and friends. Ashley, Amy, Leslie, Marija, THANK YOUUUUUUUUUUU.
THE VENUE: Stunning. Unmatched to anything you will find in Grand Rapids. Even without your wedding decorations, the beauty of this building speaks for itself. Every window holds an amazing view of Grand Rapids.
All in all, there is absolutely no regrets when it comes to chosing this place to have my wedding. They were perfect. They were everything and more.
I will always remember THEM! I wanna plan another wedding just so I can work with them again. I would trust them with my life. lol

The High Five is an amazing venue. They are currently in renovation of the 4th floor into a ceremony location that way the beautiful reception hall can be just for that, your reception. The ability to have ceremony and reception in one place was very important to us. The reception area is to die for. No pillars, original hard wood floors, amazing chandlers, brick walls, and high arch windows.Sent on 06/11/2019
The High Five GR's reply:Thank you Taylor for the kind words! We are very excited to work with you and be a part of your big day!
