  • Working with Marta was great and you could not beat the beauty of Independence Grove! The food was amazing and Marta helped with all our needs! We got several complements on our wedding and a huge part of it was how amazing everything was at independence Grove! It’s a great place to have your wedding!

  • Marta at EIG was an absolutely amazing person to work with. We chose this venue specifically because of her (in addition to the beautiful venue) due to her professional, organized, and knowledgeable service when we met her for our initial venue tour. Throughout the planning process she was able to keep us organized and on track, clearly and efficiently communicated with us, and answered all of our many questions no matter when we asked or how small the issue may have been. On the day of, she kept us calm as the weather was not cooperating with our plans. She worked so well with all of our vendors and we did not need to do anything at all during our wedding. We couldn't recommend Marta enough as well as Events at Independence Grove for a perfect wedding.

  • My husband and I could not have made a better decision for ourselves than getting married at Independence Grove. We got married here 06/05/21 and our friends and family are STILL raving that it was the best wedding they have ever been too. For one, the grounds are absolutely unbeatable. Breathtaking views and perfect photo opportunities anywhere you turn. We did our ceremony in the Native Garden and it was what we always dreamed of. The cocktail hour on the veranda was picturesque. The bartenders for cocktail hour were situated where guests would order their drinks and have a stunning view of the lake at the same time. The Audubon hall features floor length windows that gave the most incredible views of the sunset at dinner. It was decorated better than we could have ever imagined. Now, for the FOOD! The appetizers are NOT your typical wedding appetizers-they are elevated, elegant, and DELICIOUS. We decided on a double entree plate for dinner featuring the cracker crusted chicken and b...

  • Where do I even begin! Marta was amazing from the start. The venue itself is beautiful not decorated. Marta went through every single detail with me, some that I haven’t even thought of! I have many, many food allergies. Marta personally made sure that not only did I have a plate and beverage that I could enjoy at my wedding, but she made sure that everything tasted top notch, I wasn’t getting just another make-shift meal. She made sure that the room was set up to my vision and that everything ran smoothly the day of. I cannot recommend those venue highly enough. We received so many compliments that matched how detailed Marta was with her questions when we were planning. The staff, the day of, made me feel so special. They made sure I had what I wanted. They knew my drink before I even came up to the bar (they brought me a fresh drink so I didn’t have to leave the head table and could enjoy my meal). The servers were so kind when speaking with them. They made sure that my h... Read more

  • We are so happy that we chose Events at Independence Grove to take charge of our special day. From our first visit to the last moments on our wedding day, we never had any worries that our wedding would be any less than perfect. Every staff member completely exceeded our expectations, the food was outstanding, and the venue itself was beautiful. Marta, our venue coordinator, went above and beyond to accommodate our requests and really listen to the things we wanted for our big day. She works so hard with each of her couples, and we were honored that she was there to help us throughout this journey. Marta communicated well with all of the other members of our team, and was available to answer our questions upon a moment's notice! We could not have pulled off our wedding day without her. In our first meeting with the venue, they mentioned that they had an exclusive caterer. In reviewing the company, we quickly realized that it is a very highly regarded caterer for the most desire...

  • We had our wedding here! I can't get over how absolutely perfect every single thing was! Marta, our event coordinator, was PHENOMENAL!!!!! I emailed her a ton and every single time she got back to me right away! She truly loves her job and put so much love and care into our big day. We love how much direction she helped to give us every step of the way. Our wedding would not have been the show stopper it was without Marta!!! I actually started to tear up saying goodbye to her at the end, because I truly miss her already! Getting married at Independence Grove with Marta by our side was the best decision we made in our wedding planning! If you're reading this, Marta, we love you!

  • Fantastic venue in all ways. The space is beautiful, the food is excellent (we've gotten nothing but extremely positive comments), and the people are great to work with. I can't speak highly enough of Marta, who works incredibly hard and is committed to great service. I can't say anything that hasn't been said 100x by other reviewers - all good, don't hesitate to book if this place works for you.

  • Marta did an amazing job of making sure our whole wedding was amazing from start to finish! Everyone raved about the food (especially those with dietary restrictions)- both from Michael's Catering and Rickshaw Republic. Truly went above and beyond for us. Thanks EIG!

  • Marta was our event coordinator and took great lengths to organize everything, give us detailed instructions, and help us execute our vision. Everyone we worked with was incredible and our guests remarked on the beauty of the view and how much they loved the food. We felt like we were well cared for throughout the process and that we had chosen the perfect place for our big day. Thank you to everyone there and much love to Marta!

  • Our wedding was perfect and beautiful! Independence Grove made this possible with the beautiful scenery/location, delicious food, and incredibly wonderful & kind staff (including Marta the wedding coordinator/planner who went above and beyond for us). I had so many ideas and plans, and they made it all possible! Marta answered my questions almost immediately whether it was a call or email. They really care about their couples and it is so meaningful—especially while preparing for your big day. :)

  • I cannot say enough about Marta and her team and Independence Grove. My husband and I got married here on 9-21-19. I did a lot of venue searching and as soon as I left IG, I knew immediately it was the right venue. It is truly beautiful inside and out. From day one, Marta was SO helpful. She responded quickly to all my emails and was sincere in her feedback. The day of my wedding, Marta was an absolute ROCKSTAR. We had to move our wedding inside at the last minute due to rain and she made the whole process so stress-free. They made the inside look beautiful and so elegant and it worked out perfectly. My friends and family are still raving about the food and I have had a lot of people tell me the food was the best they ever had at a wedding, which says A LOT. The whole team helped us the next day to get our stuff and everyone was extremely friendly and helpful. Marta was a fun part of the day and the entire bridal party talked about how efficient she was. I would recommend IG in a heart... Read more

  • This place is fantastic. They have a coordinator that will handle vendor issues for you and direct them on the day of your wedding. Their baker and caterer for the cake and meal were fantastic. I've been told it was the best wedding food people have ever had. The staff are friendly and accommodating. We didn't have very many people (50), and while they do have a food and beverage minimum, it counts for the cake, food, bar, cocktail hour, and you can do favors. The minimum meant that we had a lot of extras that people really enjoyed. You can choose the patio and audoban hall, or the garden. Overall very very beautiful. I would highly recommend, even for those who have a larger guest count. They have a very wide range of options, and I think being able to condense a lot of the pieces made things so much easier, and way less stressful!

    Amy-Thank you for a very nice review. We are thrilled that you received everything you wanted and more!

  • I can't say enough about Marta and her team at Independence Grove. We had my daughter's wedding there last weekend and ended up moving the ceremony and cocktail hour inside due to the rain at the very last minute. What an amazing space inside and they did an amazing job with the set up. In addition, our guest could not stop raving about the food which they all said was the best food they had at a wedding. Marta was great to work with. We had an issue with a bus arriving late for the ceremony and she handled this situation with great ease and was a calming influence on a somewhat stressed out MOB. The wait staff and bartenders were so pleasant and fun. Beautiful wedding venue, inside and outside.

  • Independence Grove is the perfect picturesque location for a wedding. The service is what really locks in the reason you should choose Independence Grove for your wedding venue. From the food tasting to the day of the event, the food and hospitality of the staff were PHENOMENAL. Our guests made it a point to tell us how good the food was and that it actually came out hot! We were also well taken care of with all of the appetizers waiting for us in our bridal suite and were sent home with 2 full meals - so thoughtful! The cherry on top of everything was the coordinator at Independence Grove, Marta. Marta is so well organized AND she responds to e-mails within hours, sometimes even within minutes! It is evident that she truly cares about her couples when she insists on helping to coordinate our outside vendors in addition to everything else she has to deal with. She made the entire planning process as easy as possible. On the day of our wedding, she blew us away when she had all of our d... Read more

  • I'm sure the venue is very nice, however I did not get the chance to see it. After emailing one of the listed sales representatives her initial response was very quick but rather short. She resent me information that I had already received and gone through and didn't seem to want to talk through it but kept referring to the attachments, at one point she didn't even answer my questions just responded with attachments and I had to redirect her to the questions I posed. Our email communication after that seemed very discouraging and as a Bride you don't want to feel like the venue is cold or being difficult before even setting foot in the door. The rep was very adamant that if I could not agree to the price point she suggested that it would be "a waste of time" to visit the venue and speak with someone. This is without asking me what my potential needs are or offering to look over a package with me and seeing what could be done. Understandable you want to make a sale and not waste time w...
