The Goei Center was exceptional from beginning to end. From our first contact to our big day, all went smmothly. We had wonderful support and guidance all along the way. Michaela was a fabulous contact person who made us feel welcomed. She was so patient, kind, and quick at communication. The venue itself is gorgeous, elegant, spacious, classic, the list goes on and on...Sent on 12/05/2018

Beautiful Venue with LOTS of Charm!
The Goei Center was the perfect spot for our wedding! We had a little over 100 guests - the space didn't seem too cramped and it didn't come across as empty either. Lots of modern/industrial charm in this venue!Sent on 06/25/2019
The Goei Center's reply:Thank you for such a kind review Lindsy! We loved having you here in our space! Hope the first month of marriage has been nothing but the best for you and Travis!

Great staff and service!
We loved having our reception at the Goei Center! The staff was so friendly, helpful, flexible, and truly made the day special for us. Everything turned out so beautifully, and it was nice not to have to worry about anything. Having the two separate rooms was perfect, we were able to have cocktail hour in one and dinner and dancing in the other. I do think they are a bit on the pricy side, but with how great they are to work with and how much they do, it was worth it.Sent on 07/24/2019
The Goei Center's reply:Thank you for such a sweet review Jordan!! We love hearing that everything turned out just the way you dreamed and we are so happy you did not have to worry about a thing - that is always our goal!! You and Cory were SO great to work with! Wishing you both nothing but the best!

Wonderful Staff, Beautiful Venue
We booked the Goei Center for our wedding on March 3rd, 2019 and I honestly can't recommend the venue enough. The reason we booked it in the first place was for their beautiful building and how close it was to downtown GR. But after working with them for a little while I found out that the best part of the venue wasn't the venue itself but the people working for it! I worked with two beautiful ladies, Michaela and Kylie. Both of them answered every question I had (of which there were many!) quickly and were both extremely helpful, informative, and friendly! They were laid back but still very on top of what was going on and were always quick to help if I might need anything. On top of doing a fabulous job planning the wedding and coordinating it with me, they also did a great job helping everything run smoothly the day of as well. Overall the whole experience was amazing, mostly due to those two ladies. Thank you so much, Michaela and Kylie, and to the Goei Center for helping us have such an amazing day! ❤️Sent on 03/22/2019
The Goei Center's reply:Aww Emily, such a sweet review! You guys were the absolute greatest to work with, we loved being able to be a part of your special day! So glad you guys enjoyed your wedding here at the Goei Center! I hope the first month of marriage has been nothing but the best for you and Jack! :)

Awesome, would have another event here!
I actually had the pleasure of working with several different coordinators at different times throughout my wedding. Each was professional, responsive and flexible. It was comforting knowing I didn't have to worry about anything at the venue. Everything was easy, seemless and the day of the actual wedding was perfect. I'd recommend The Goei not only for their venue, but also the staff, it was a pleasure to work with them!Sent on 12/06/2018
The Goei Center's reply:Megan you are so sweet! Thank you so much for your kind review! We absolutely loved working with you and Matt. Wishing you both nothing but happiness in the years to come!

Our perfect day made a reality
Kylie and the whole team at the Goei Center went above and beyond helping us make our dream wedding come true. They were so easy to work with and assisted us in making each detailed decision about how our day would come together. The day of, they worked hard in bringing everything together so my husband and I could just enjoy it. I couldn't recommend them more- we will forever look back on our wedding day fondly :)Sent on 12/10/2018

Lucie · Married on 06/02/2018
Choosing the Goei Center as the venue for both our ceremony and reception was truly the best decision we made when it came to our wedding. Right away working with Lindsay was like working with a friend - she is so kind, understanding, thoughtful, and so so good at her job. She worked with us every step of the way, and found quick solutions to any problem that arose during the planning process. Even with her busy schedule we always felt like she truly wanted our day to be perfect. She also coordinated with our other vendors, which made life so much easier. Because of her we did not have to worry about a thing throughout the entire day of the wedding.Sent on 06/17/2018
We really appreciated the flexibility the Goei Center offered us to suit all our needs, and Lindsay gave great advice and recommendations when needed. The entire space was beautiful and better than we even imagined. The character of the building was exactly what we were looking for. It was raw and industrial while still remaining elegant, and allowed us to incorporate personal details that were important to us.
We encourage everyone to celebrate their marriage at Goei, and really cannot recommend it enough for your wedding day!
The Goei Center's reply:Lucie, you are the absolute sweetest :) Thank you for your kind words and thoughtful review. You and Anthony were so fun to work with and get to know throughout the planning process! I wish you two all the very best :)
Erica · Married on 05/19/2018
We used the Goei Center for both our ceremony and reception and we could not be happier with our choice! Lindsay was a dream to work with and was so responsive to any questions or concerns we had. All of the staff at the Goei Center made sure that our special day went off without a hitch. They coordinated with our DJ and caterer so that our wedding day was as stress-free as it possibly could have been. It was a truly beautiful venue and we received so many compliments from our guests.Sent on 05/23/2018
The Goei Center's reply:Thank you so much for your sweet review, Erica! It was a pleasure working with you as you were a JOY :) Cheers!

Kelly · Married on 10/21/2017
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!!Sent on 11/27/2017
The Goei Center's reply:Awww, thank you so much, Kelly!! You were so sweet to work with and get to know :) I greatly appreciate your thoughtful review. All the very best to you and Michael as husband and wife :)

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"Sent on 10/23/2017
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.

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!

Emilee · Married on 07/01/2017
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!Sent on 07/22/2017

Jenna · Married on 05/27/2017
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.Sent on 06/07/2017
