  • We loved working with the GEC during our wedding planning process. Even with having a COVID wedding, Kate helped bring our perfect wedding vision to life. She worked with us through the entire process and constantly contacted me with information/changes that I would need to know. I felt relaxed and excited during the wedding planning process because Kate and the staff at the GEC were awesome. I highly recommend this venue to anyone planning a wedding. Also, our guest LOVED the food. We have gotten many compliments on how good it was! Overall, we had a great experience and we are so happy we choose The Grand Event Center for our wedding.

  • My daughter’s June 2020 wedding had to be cancelled and rescheduled due to the Pandemic. This was so stressful to us, but we were luckily able to reschedule it. We chose another date at The Grand Event Center. They had all precautions in place, so no one at anytime, felt unsafe . It is a beautiful Venue! The Ceiling lights are so unique, and having the ability to use the connected Courtyard with String lights, several sofas and tables to relax in, and a fabulous fire pit, all added to the experience! The food was fabulous, and we had so many guests including a food blogger in attendance, that raved about it! Presentation was also lovely! Since the Brides family is from another city, having the Courtyard Marriott connected , made it all so convenient for everyone! Kate Vondenhuevel, director of events, was so helpful in every way. She always returned e mails in a very timely manner, and had a lot of great ideas! If you are looking for a Venue in the Columbus area, you need to go and s... Read more

  • We are so happy with our decision to have the Grand host our wedding. With having to postpone the original event, they were so accommodating and made the normally stressful process much easier. Kate Vondenhuevel was THE BEST to work with. We highly recommend The Grand Event Center!

  • The staff of the Grand Event Center was fantastic!!!! Way beyond my expectations. Caroline was always super responsive to my emails leading up to the event. The day of was no different. She orchestrated the day and everything went perfectly. It was so great to have someone else boss my family around so I didn't have to!

  • Our experience with the Grand Event Center was wonderful and fun times infinity! From the very beginning, we were already so pleased with the planning process. Bryan W. was great with helping us make the final decision for our venue and paperwork was so easy. Caroline W. was the best!!!! She made everything happen and possible for us. She was amazing with communication and answering all of our questions. The FOOD WAS INCREDIBLE. Chef Aaron made us some delicious food and people LOVED it all. The staff members were fun and personable. They worked so hard! This venue was perfection for our wedding day. We are so happy and cannot thank everyone at the Grand Event Center enough. We recommend this venue to all brides and grooms!

  • It was absolutely wonderful working with the GEC and the staff there! They made sure all our needs were met (and then some) in a timely manner. Most of our guests were from out of town (mostly out of state), so it was amazing to have everything in one place-the hotel, the parking, reception site, etc. the team was able to coordinate with the restaurant next door to let them know that the wedding revelers would be directed their way once the reception ended so there would be enough staff on hand. As for price, I’m very happy we went here. So many things were included for the price (food, linens, alcohol) that it greatly simplified my life. While they do have a minimum amount of money that is required to be spent, they were willing to lower it for us due to a mishap with dates on their end. When the GEC realized that they had accidentally double booked, they immediately reached out to us and offered solutions for the hassle of changing our wedding date (it wasn’t a hassle as this...

  • The Grand Event Center was the absolute perfect place to have our wedding ceremony and reception! We couldn't have been happier with this choice for our wedding. The venue is beautiful, and the staff is absolutely wonderful. We primarily worked with Caroline to plan our wedding. She was extremely friendly and very helpful in the planning process. She met with us several times before the wedding and was always there to answer questions via email. On the day of the wedding, we didn't have to do a thing as Caroline was there to make sure the day ran smoothly, and it was perfect. We even had great weather and our guest got to enjoy cocktail hour outside in the Courtyard, which was great. Additionally, we received many compliments on how professional and friendly the staff was during the wedding and how great the food was at cocktail hour and during the dinner service. We thought the food was AWESOME! Lastly, it was great to have the convenience of the hotel immediately next door to the ve... Read more

  • The Grand Event Center was the perfect spot for our wedding reception. The venue is absolutely beautiful and from the day we reached out to the event center until even after the wedding, Caroline and the rest of the staff were extremely quick and friendly when responding to my many emails. Caroline helped us plan the wedding of our dreams, and Kate executed it on the day of. They accommodated my Youngstown cookie table, Italian food requests, and family wanting to help through the set up process. Our guests could not stop talking about how great the service and food was! And my husband and I both appreciated that staff frequently checked in with us to make sure we ate and had a drink if needed. I also appreciated how well the event center worked with our other vendors. Basically, everything was perfect and I would recommend The Grand Event Center to anyone and everyone!

  • I am so glad we chose "The Grand Event Center" for our venue for our August wedding! This venue had everything we were looking for: location, connected to a hotel, had catering on site, and had a team of dedicated professionals to make sure everything was taken care of! Caroline was a pleasure to work with, she was very quick on communication and she helped make our ideas a reality. We knew we were in good hands with her! I loved being able to use all of the wonderful spaces at The Grand Event Center had to offer (ballroom, atrium/pre-fuction room, etc), and being able to use the courtyard for our cocktail hour was just perfect! The food was incredible (we got so many compliments) and the bar service was excellent. The staff there were very attentive and so professional, everything went perfectly. My only comment was that we had to be out of the space by midnight, so the end of our reception was a little rushed. While they did let us go over a few minutes, it would have made the evenin...
