    Best staff. Best service. Best venue!

    My husband and I were so satisfied with everything about the Grove Event Center. From the moment we decided to use them to our big day, everything ran so smooth and Karen and Thom were so helpful and responsive. They made everything so simple and stress-free! This beautiful space accommodated our guests so well and we couldn’t be happier.

    Perfect venue!

    We had the most amazing wedding day at the grove events center!! They booked us three weeks before our wedding and our night was absolutely perfect!! The space is newly renovated and GORGEOUS both inside and outside! Karen and Thom were so helpful and accommodating, especially with booking last minute. Thom is so fun and upbeat and every thorough. Karen was there the night of and ensured everything went smooth. Karen worked so well with my wedding planner and they made the space even more beautiful than I could imagine!! ❤️

    Made me feel at home!

    The staff at the Grove made me feel like I was a part of their family from the moment I had my first tour.
    They were so efficient and accommodating from the very beginning and they made sure my event ran smoothly without a single bump along the way. I never felt nervous about anything, because I knew that they would do anything to help me! Thom would even answer emails that I sent to him at ridiculous hours of the night!
    My family baked cookies for my reception, and The Grove let us bring them in the day before and store them in the fridge so they would be ready at the start of the reception.
    This venue was amazing and the room looked absolutely stunning! My guests had so much room to move around, and the fact that the dry bar and all linens were included in my room rental made everything so simple!
    I would recommend The Grove to anyone. Absolutely unmatched service, professionalism, and excellence.

    Simply Fantastic

    I can’t possibly say enough good things about the Grove. Thom and Karen and their team were incredible and did such a good job. They made the process so simple and answered every question along the way! The venue was large enough for our giant wedding. Additionally, it was SPOTLESS even after having a wedding the night before ours. Bonus- it looked gorgeous with our decorations. I am so pleased with our experience and know you will be too.

    A Great Decision

    We used the Grove for our wedding reception and that was easily one of the best decisions we have made throughout our entire planning process. Karen and Thom both were amazing to work with! They were great with communication, price was very reasonable for how many people we had invited to celebrate with us, and their entire staff was amazing! We were treated with a ton of respect and they made us feel like family. We will forever recommend using the Grove for any events someone may need, including wedding receptions! Thank you, Thom and Karen, for making our night so magical and everything we ever dreamed of!

    Excellent venue!

    The Grove of Springfield Township is easily the best value for a wedding reception in Cincinnati. You can make it as elegant as you want or as budget-friendly as you want. Thom and Karen are tremendous to work with. Most of our email exchanges with Thom were answered within the hour. The actual wedding day went perfectly, and everything we had planned went exactly as expected. We cannot recommend them enough. All of our wedding guests were incredibly pleased with the experience.

    Perfect Venu For Non-Profits Too!

    I have hosted a few events for my non-profit at The Grove. Thom and Karen are a dream to work with. For our events, each is very different with various areas for guest participation. Thom has a knack for the best set up to maximize our seating capacity and assure a good flow. Karen is attention to detail in the very best ways! (It's like having your own personal team of experts to assure your event is a success!) I highly recommend The Grove lighting packages - which set the mood for the event. (Worth the small upgrade!) The beautiful park setting is an asset and great for outdoor photos.

    The Grove Event Center's reply:

    Kim - We love repeat clients like yours - working with non-profits is fantastic. And it's ironic that the rental income generated from events at The Grove go to support the Township's Community Art Center and our non-profit organization, ArtsConnect. We look forward to seeing you back next year!

    Our reception at the Grove

    The location was awesome for a good price. If you think the day before your wedding is going to get booked you might want to reserve that day. The day before our wedding luckily wasn’t booked so I was able to set up beforehand. If I wasn’t able to do that then I wouldn’t have anything to do with the setup at all because I chose to do a first look and all of the pictures before the ceremony. If you have someone you trust to set up 2 hrs before that e event then you should be fine.

    The Grove Event Center's reply:

    Barbra - Thank you for entrusting us at the Grove with your special day -we are glad that we met all of your expectations! We loved your centerpieces - it takes a creative mind to make an engine piston into an elegant floral arrangement. It's great when couples personalize their events by thinking outside the box for their decor! We wish you and Theodore long life and joy together.
