This beautiful venue is a hidden Gem! I never even knew it was there until our first wedding there. It is BEAUTIFUL!!!!! and it overlooks the beautiful downtown view. The staff is so great to work with!!!!!
University Club of Grand Rapids is such a great venue! Katie and her team do everything they can to make sure a bride and groom get the day they want. And the food is always just wonderful! As a planner, they are a wonderful venue to work with to create a seamless celebration!
I have had the pleasure of working with the University Club twice as an event coordinator. They are so very friendly, organized, and eager to please. The facility is always spotless and they make sure to set it up exactly as discussed. On the big day they are always well staffed and events go off without a hitch. They are willing to work with a couple on special requests such as incorporating local food and beverages or accommodation of unique themes. The views of the vibrant city are bountiful from this perch atop the skyline. UC is a great place to hold your wedding reception or any lovely party for that matter!
