Where do I even begin??? I booked the Goei Center for our reception venue two years out from our wedding date and was so lucky that I got to work with Lindsay the entire time. Her quality of service and responsiveness is unmatched. As I have never planned a wedding before I had so many questions and Lindsay was there every step of the way to ensure everything was being taken care of on her end. Her positive attitude, upbeat energy & organization made it so easy to work with her. I received endless compliments on our wedding day about how much our guests loved the venue and the service. I would absolutely recommend anyone looking for a wonderful, unique venue in Grand Rapids! You will not be disappointed with Lindsay and her expertise!!
Mother of the Bride: The Goei Center was the perfect venue for our 227 guests. There was so much available space for our guests to dine, dance and visit with one another. The Goei provided two beautiful areas for guests to enjoy our wedding celebration. The staff members were responsive to every need and went out of their way to make our evening a happy amazing memory.
Absolutely amazing. Lindsey was a dream to work with during the planning process and the staff was amazing during our event. Our guests are still talking about how beautiful everything was.
Thank you kindly, Jackie!! We appreciate your sweet review and are so happy to hear your guests loved our space just as much as we do :) Thank you again!!
Lindsay was awesome!!!! She was able to guide us through the whole process and calmed our nerves. We had a non-traditional wedding and Lindsay treated us with professionalism and respect. Here are just a couple comments from our own guests: "most beautiful wedding they have ever attended" "what an awesome venue" "very elegant and stunning"
We can't thank Lindsay enough for helping us every step of the way!!! I would recommend Lindsay and the Goei Center to anyone who asks.
Kristi and Ann
Kristi, thank you!! You and Ann were so fun to plan with :) I greatly appreciate your kind words and recommendation. Thank you again!!
The Goei Center is a unique wedding venue with lots of character! We had both our wedding ceremony & reception at the Goei Center and it was the perfect day! We received numerous compliments from our guests on how beautiful the venue was and how they loved how much space it offers. Lindsay, the coordinator, was fantastic to work with! She was easy to get ahold of, always answered all of my questions and made planning my wedding very easy! She is amazing at her job and was such a pleasure to work with! I am extremely happy that we chose to have our wedding day at the Goei Center!
Yay-the 'perfect day'!! We love to hear that :) Thank you for your recommendation and kind words, Bree. You were an absolute JOY to work with! Thanks again!
I absolutely LOVED having our reception at the Goei Center! Lindsay was awesome throughout the wedding planning and was always fast at responding to my e-mails (Blake too). Staff was very-friendly! The venue is amazing!!
Thank you kindly, Jill! We are grateful for your sweet words and recommendation :)
Lindsay was wonderful to work with! She responds so quickly to emails and is always willing to help and give great advice for your planing experience. Lindsay is so easy to get along with and made us feel at ease while planning our big day! Lindsay knows exactly what she is doing and is a top notch wedding coordinator, I wish we could do it all again, such a wonderful experience!
Emily, thank you!! You were so much fun to work with and get to know :) I truly appreciate your kind words!
I had both my ceremony and reception at the Goei Center on July 1st! The venue is beautiful and has so much character to it! We had a lot of out of town guests and they are still talking about how beautiful the wedding was! We had 300 guests and still had plenty of space! Lindsey is so helpful and so quick to respond to emails! She ensured all of the worries I had were taken care of and made sure that everything was perfect! Jane Goei is also very responsive to emails about the bar! She went above and beyond and asked for a photo of my husband and I to display on a slide show above the bar! The security staff is amazing and friendly as well! We had a ribbon wand send off and the security guard went through and helped my mom collect all of the ribbon wands that people had thrown away! I would recommend the Goei Center over and over! Such a beautiful place with amazing staff!
Emilee, thank you!! We appreciate your sweet recommendation :) It was an honor to work with you throughout the entire planning process. Thank you again!
The Goei Center was the perfect venue for Alex and Ethan's wedding and reception. Lindsay and Jane were a pleasure to work with and they were instrumental in making the day incredible for my daughter, son in law and guests!
We appreciate your kind words, Andrea! Thank you :) It was so much fun planning for Alex and Ethan's absolutely beautiful day here with us!
I had a fantastic experience working with the Goei Center. Not only is the space absolutely beautiful but Lindsay is SO on top of things! She responded so quickly to all of my emails and was extremely helpful from the start to the finish. I highly recommend going with the Goei Center for your special day!
Carly, you are the sweetest, thank you!! You were so fun to work with and get to know :) I appreciate your sweet sweet words!
I can't even begin to explain how truly wonderful it was to work with Lindsay @ The Goei Center. She literally got me though my 5 month engagement, which allowed me to keep my sanity ;) Every question & email was answered in a very timely matter with such kindness and patience. Not only did I get to work with a expert wedding coordinator, but I also made a friend! Thank you so much for EVERYTHING Lindsay!!
Whitney, thank you!! You were a JOY to plan with and get to know :) I truly appreciate your sweet words, friendship and recommendation! Cheers to you and Brian!
Lindsay was hands-down the most amazing wedding coordinator. She is professional, detail oriented, responsive, and an all around great person. I couldn't have hand-picked a better wedding coordinator. Despite me planning a wedding from out of state, she quickly responded to any question I had almost immediately, regardless of the time of day. Our wedding day went flawlessly and all credit goes to Lindsay.
Jenna, thank you!! I truly appreciate your sweet words :) You were an absolute joy to work with and get to know throughout the planning process. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your special day!
The Goei Center was the perfect venue for our reception. From the first meeting through the last moments of our special night everyone was wonderful to work with. We felt valued and comfortable talking through any of our concerns which were quickly met with many options and solutions. Lindsay, Jane and Blake made our planning easy and smooth leading to a wonderful evening that all of our family and friends enjoyed. All of their staff on the night of were attentive and went above and beyond to ensure my husband and I had everything we needed.
Thank you kindly, Katie :) We appreciate your recommendation and were honored to be a part of your special day here!
The Goei Center was the perfect venue. The wedding coordinator did a wonderful job in helping to make sure my day went smoothly. The space is beautiful and unique. I fell in love with it as soon as I walked in!
Thank you so much, Kortney! We were honored to be a part of your special day and are happy to hear you enjoyed our space :)
We LOVED our reception at The Goei Center! The entire staff was so helpful when it came to room set up, bar services, and even who should cater. The setting was perfect, they have brick walls, and wood floors- great for dancing. Having two huge rooms where guests could dance, or enjoy conversation away from the music was amazing!
You are the absolute sweetest, Sarah! We appreciate your kind words :) Cheers to you and Florian in your future as husband and wife!
I can't say enough great things about the Goei Center. Our first tour of the venue was amazing. We visited the Cheney Place first (another GR venue that is beautiful) and we were so let down because we lost the last date available for 2017 on a Saturday. We decided to look at the Goei Center and I'm so glad that we did. It's honestly the most beautiful venue I've been to! I love the open floor plan, everything on one level, the beautiful bar, the brick walls and all of the greenery. There is a large parking lot for guests. The ceremony set up is so intimate and pretty. The staff is so amazing. Lindsay goes above and beyond as the wedding coordinator. She was so flexible which put me at ease as a bride. Everything was perfect. Our guests had a great time.
Thank you so much, Katy! Both you and Bill were an absolute JOY to work with and get to know throughout the planning process :) We are so happy you enjoyed your special day with us!
Lindsay was an amazing person to work with! Always quick to respond and always willing to help answer questions or concerns! The wedding day itself moved so smoothly and I know Lindsay had a lot to do with that as she was the wedding coordinator for The Goei Center. The Goei Center was gorgeous and the guests all loved the 2 separate rooms (cocktail hour and reception rooms). It was absolutely perfect and I would recommend Lindsay and The Goei Center to anyone!!!
Thank you so very much, Callie! We appreciate your sweet words and recommendation :) You were honestly such a joy to work with. All the best to you and Brandon as husband and wife!
Where do I even begin? My husband Thom and I had our ceremony and reception at the Goei Center 1/7/17. From start of the wedding planning to the very end of our reception it was perfect! Lindsay and Jane made the entire process so simple with quick emails, suggestions, staying in touch with other vendors, to making sure everything was perfect the day of. The venue is absolutely stunning! The entire night we had countless guest compliment on how beautiful and elegant everything was. I could not have imagined a more perfect place for our big day! From the amazing staff to the gorgeous hard wood floors and brick walls, 10 out of 10 easily.
Thank you so much for making our dream wedding exceed any expectations. Highly recommend the Goei Center!
Brooke, thank you so much! You and Thom were such a joy to work with : ) We were honored to have you with us for your special day. Many years of happiness as husband and wife!
The Goei Center was the first and only wedding venue we looked at before deciding that it was the perfect place for us to get married and host our wedding reception. Lindsay was absolutely amazing right from the beginning! She was prompt to answer all of our questions, no matter the time or day; she made sure we were completely prepared for our wedding day; and she was even there on the day of to make sure the ceremony ran smoothly as well as the reception. We had one mix up with our cake vendor and she even went out of her way to take care of that for us with no issues! She communicated with all of our vendors throughout the process, helping to make everything run so smoothly and without stress. We really appreciate all of your help Lindsay! We couldn't have asked for a better wedding coordinator to work with!
I have to mention Blake as well, because he was equally as awesome! He took over for Lindsay on the night of our wedding, and made sure everything went smoothly from there. Thank you so much, Blake!
As for the venue itself, it was beautiful! We received countless compliments from our guests on how amazing and unique the Goei Center was. The set-up of the venue from the ceremony, to the cocktail hour, to the reception dinner, was all laid out so perfectly. It was a flawless spot for our New Year's Eve wedding!
The Goei Center also hosted our bar. Jane worked with me on the menu and other bar related details, and she was great! All of the bartenders were amazing as well, and Cory especially, was exceptional! My guests loved him!
Thank you so much to all of the staff at the Goei Center! You were all so amazing, and you helped create a wedding day that we will remember and cherish forever! We truly appreciate all of your hard work!
Jessica! Thank you so very much for your extremely sweet review :) It was our honor to have you and Conner with us for your special day. You both were an absolute joy to work with and get to know. You brought so much joy into our space! Many years of happiness to you as husband and wife!
Everything about the GOEI center was absolutely perfect all the way from the look of the building to the security detail. We had plenty of space for all of our guests. The middle aged attendees loved the front room where they could talk in peace while the younger guests danced the night away. Lindsay was phenomenal to work with! She answered all of my emails/questions promptly and was organized when I wasn't. We loved our night there and so did our guests!
Madi, you seriously are the best! We appreciate your kind words and sweetness so very much :) You were simply a joy to work with! All the very best to you and John in your future as husband and wife!
Lindsay was amazing! She was more on top of my wedding than I was!
Thank you kindly! Your sweet words are greatly appreciated :) All the very best to you as husband and wife!
The Goei Center was fantastic! Lindsay was incredible friendly and professional. She was super quick to return all of my emails and treated all of my questions with importance. The space is beautiful and large and so unique. More than one of my guests mentioned using The Goei Center for their own events. Could not recommend this venue more!
Thank you so very much for the recommendation! We truly appreciate your kind words :) Cheers to you as husband and wife!!
I had such a great experience with the Goei Center for my wedding! The staff was very professional, friendly, and really went above and beyond to make my special day perfect. Lindsay was amazing! She always responded to my emails very quickly and made sure I felt reassured that my day would be perfect. I would definitely recommend this venue for any event!
You are so very sweet, Amber :) Thank you kindly for your recommendation! Many years of happiness to you as husband and wife!
Wonderful venue to have ceremony and reception at the same place. We were so happy with venue, Lindsay and all the staff at Goei and Eastern Floral.
Thank you kindly, Janette :) Your recommendation is greatly appreciated!
We were originally attracted to the Goei Center due to it's beauty and simple elegance. However upon meeting Lindsay Lieffers we knew we had much more than a beautiful venue for Jenna and Cody's wedding day. We had the true pleasure of working with Lindsay on how the entire evening would play out. She offered great ideas, was very detailed and always was gracious and kind with all of our inquiries. When the day arrived she was right there with us which offered a great sense of "calm"- she really felt like one of the family by then! I would highly recommend the Goei Center and Lindsay! Also I would be remiss if I didn't mention the great team of Christa and Brenda with Eastern Floral- they brought all of our ideas together perfectly as well as offered details that we hadn't thought about. We were pleased beyond our expectations not only with the Goei Center itself, but the team of great people that simplified everything for us!
Thank you so very much, Pam! You were truly lovely to work with for Jenna and Cody's special day :) We appreciate your extremely kind words more than you know! All the best to you!
