  • Events at Independence Grove, and more specifically Alyson, made our wedding the most beautiful, amazing day of our lives! The venue is absolutely gorgeous, you barely need any extra decorations or details, the room and outdoors are enough by themselves. Alyson made our planning, rehearsal, and day of so smooth, I never felt stressed about anything going on with the venue or food. Speaking of food--the most delicious wedding meal I have EVER had!! We received so many compliments on the food! I cannot rave about our experience with Events at Independence Grove enough--I want to relive the day again to be able to take it all in. Hearing people tell us it was the best wedding they've been too was just icing on the cake!

  • From our initial meeting to the late night bite at the reception, Independence Grove was professional, helpful and fun to work with. If I could give 10/5 stars I would!

  • Just had my wedding at Independence grove and it completely blew away my expectations. First of all, when you have an event here, an event coordinator sits with you to plan out every single detail to make your day perfect. This was so helpful, as Alyson executed every single detail from food, to linens, to decor placement, and even directing the bridal party and guests the day of. Planning a wedding came with no stress for me and my hubby because all we had to do was pick and choose what we wanted. The execution was impecable, the venue was stunning and magical, and the service was prompt and pleasant. Independence Grove can make your event happen exactly the way you dreamt it. Thank you to all the staff there for delivering beyond wonderful service.

    Madinah, Thank you for the awesome review. It makes it even better knowing the comments come from an awesome couple like you and Roy. We really loved executing your wedding. It was a beautiful occasion as were the images that you included. We'd love to see all of your pictures!

  • We could not have asked for a more perfect wedding day! Events at Independence Grove was absolutely incredible to work with from beginning to end. Their staff helped effectively navigate every detail from the moment we booked the venue, through our happily ever after. Alyson was assigned as our coordinator and she was awesome! She was available any time I had a question and was always prompt with her responses. When I was unsure of what course to take, she helped navigate us in the right direction. She stopped a few bridal meltdowns in the weeks leading up to the wedding and I was SO THANKFUL she was there for us. The venue, the staff, the food, everything was perfect. I would give them 10 stars if it allowed!

  • On June 30, 2018 we had our daughter and son-in-law's wedding reception at Independence Grove. We worked with Alyson and she could not have been more helpful, professional, organized, and just so personable. She was an absolute pleasure to work with! I can't possibly describe how nice our experience was with her. She was very prompt with communication and answered all of our questions. There is so much planning involved with a wedding and she was with us every step of the way to make us feel comfortable. She was there the evening of the wedding to ensure everything went smoothly. Again, I couldn't speak more highly of her! Michaels who does the catering did a fantastic job on the food, we were all very pleased. They paid careful attention to any "dietary needs" our guests had and ensured that they received the appropriate meal. We had many complements on how great the food was. The grounds are just beautiful at Independence Grove as well. Great for pictures! Also I'd like to give a bi... Read more

  • Regarding my daughter's wedding reception with Events at Independence Grove... ... From the very beginning to beyond the end, Events at Independence Grove's attention to detail, responsiveness, professionalism, communications, flexibility, and interaction with our other vendors were exceptional. The venue is fairy tale beautiful. Hors d'oeuvres exquisitely delicious. Dinner presentation elegant and Entrée beyond tasty. The cake from their vendor, Oak Mill Bakery in Niles, cannot be beat. During the event, the entire staff operates like whispers while they attend to all guests. Their presence was in the shadows as they executed the responsibilities of their roles quietly and efficiently without fuss. Food and beverage were brought to the tables and dirty dishes whisked away mysteriously. And the bartenders... very pleasant and attentive. Stewart Glass is a treasure. Alyson Avondruska (our coordinator) is over the top excellent. This was our second wedding event with this... Read more

    To the best FOB (father of the Bride)....We appreciate all of the nice things you said about EIG!! It was amazing that you honored us with doing both daughter's weddings. Too bad for us there are no more. Thank you again for the confidence you placed in Events at Independence Grove!!

  • We could not be happier that we celebrated our wedding at Independence Grove. We loved having the opportunity to work with Alyson. Her communication was always prompt and thorough. If we had a question about anything, she got back to us immediately. She was patient, flexible, and intuitive. She helped guide us through everything and made each step of the planning process run smoothly. When it came to the day of the wedding, we felt so relaxed knowing that Alyson had everything under control. She coordinated with the vendors and ensured each detail was perfect. With Alyson as our event coordinator, we worried about nothing and enjoyed every second of the night. Every part of the reception was flawless—the service was amazing, the space looked incredible, and our guests had an absolute blast. We had so many guests RAVE about the food—from the hors d’oeurves, to the flambé donut station for dessert, to the late night street taco bar. The options with Catering by Michaels seemed lim...

  • We had a fantastic experience working with Independence Grove for our wedding on 6/10/2018 (Native Garden - Ceremony, Audubon Hall - Reception). Upon our initial meeting, we were impressed with their organization, extensive resources and expertise. We were extremely fortunate to be able to work with Marta. For a type A, detail oriented couple, Marta was a dream to work with! She was always extremely responsive and her guidance was invaluable. Our wedding itself, was gorgeous. We have received so many compliments on the food and our photos could not have turned out more beautiful, thanks to Independence Grove as the setting. Would highly recommend!
