  • The Harris Building was hands down the BEST decision we made for our May 22, 2021 wedding. The building is absolutely breathtaking, the staff (shout out to Kelsi and team) are responsive, organized, and incredibly helpful, and given our last minute COVID changes, they were willing to work with us to make it the best day we could have ever imagined. I HIGHLY recommend this venue to anyone looking for an elegant, urban atmosphere for their wedding, and seeking peace of mind during the planning process. I can't say enough great things about this venue and will certainly recommend it for any future event.

  • The Harris Building venue itself is absolutely gorgeous and big enough to host a ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception in the same space. We not only fell in love with the elegant, yet warm space, but the staff, specifically Kelsi Gaunt, was absolutely INCREDIBLE. Planning a wedding during COVID-19 wasn't ideal, but Kelsi worked with us every step of the way and went above and beyond to make sure that our day was absolutely perfect.

    Olivia & Matt, thank you so much for this very sweet review! It was such a joy hosting your wedding in our venue, and working with you both! You are champions for planning a wedding during a global pandemic! The day was beautiful, and we look forward to celebrating with you again (and all of your family & friends) this December! Cheers! Kelsi, Events Director

  • Kelsi at the Harris Building was the top vendor we worked with! She saved my daughter's wedding so many times. She always finds a way to make it work, handled problems we encountered with other vendors, even stepped in to take over for our wedding planner. She is nothing short of amazing! Her setup on the day of your wedding is gorgeous too! I cannot recommend her enough!

    It was truly a pleasure working with you, Stephanie! Poor Katie and Kyle had the most complicating and frustrating journey leading up to their wedding day, and I am just very happy that I was able to help make their special day happen - it was such an incredible day! Thank you for trusting me and for allowing me and all of my wonderful staff members to be a part of their wedding day! I am so grateful! Warmest Regards, Kelsi

  • I had my intimate ceremony and dinner here this past weekend and it was just beautiful! From the moment we toured the venue, we knew that we had to book it for our wedding, and the entire process from start to finish was really amazing! The staff is so friendly and quick to respond to emails/phone calls! We worked closely with Kelsi for all of our event planning and cannot say enough positive things about her! For one, she is super sweet and very genuine! My husband and I felt very comfortable working with her and knew that our special day was in good hands. While we planned a wedding during a global pandemic, The Harris Building truly could not have handled it any better; they were always understanding, supportive, and provided so much help/advice! If you are looking for a venue that is breathtaking, look no further! We are so happy that we had our wedding at the Harris Building!

    Your wedding day was just PERFECT, Katie! We loved working with you and Matt! Thank you for trusting us to handle all of the details for your big day in our venue, and also for always remaining patient and understanding with us as we worked through all of the regulations/restrictions regarding COVID-19. It was an absolute pleasure getting to know you both better, and I wish you all of the best in your new marriage! I am going to miss laughing with you and Matt over our FaceTime meetings! Warmest Congratulations! -Kelsi, Events Director

  • We honestly cannot say enough good things about our experience working with the Harris from the very beginning. We first saw the Harris in December 2019 before we had even gotten engaged, and we knew right away that we wanted to have our wedding there. We got engaged the week before COVID shut down the country. We wanted our parents to see the venue before we put down a deposit, so Kelsi immediately rescheduled a tour with us in anticipation of the shutdown for our original tour date. The day after we saw the Harris with our parents, the shutdown was announced. When someone else started thinking of rescheduling their wedding for our desired date, Kelsi reached out to us immediately with our options, and we chose March 6, 2021 instead. As we began to plan our wedding during COVID, we never imagined that a year later our wedding would be a "COVID wedding", but as time continued it was clear that the wedding we had imagined would not be possible. Kelsi and her team were thrown into... Read more

    Thank you for this incredibly kind review, Lauren! I cannot even begin to express how much I enjoyed working with you and Zach - it was seriously such a pleasure, and I am so happy that you were able to celebrate your special day in our venue! I am going to miss communicating with you both, and I wish you all of the best as you begin this exciting new chapter in your lives together as husband and wife! Warmest Regards, Kelsi

  • I am so glad I got married at The Harris Building! They truly make wedding planning easy with several built in services and preferred vendors. Their staff is very helpful and quick to respond to emails. We got several compliments from guests on how well run our wedding was and how friendly the staff was. The Harris Building is a beautiful venue and we couldn't have asked for a better wedding. Thank you!

  • We first met Kelsi and Kristen as we were originally supposed to have our wedding at the Harris Building in downtown Grand Rapids. The wedding was already complex to begin with – we (the bride and groom) are based on the West Coast with family and friends from Michigan, all over the country and the world. Due to Covid, we had to move our dates out and to another location in South Haven. But they still worked with us to plan our wedding and by the end of the wedding, we were extremely glad and grateful Kelsi and Kristen were still leading the charge as our planners. There were many intricacies to our wedding – we required social distancing measures to ensure the attendees were safe and comfortable; we had multiple themes (Winter for the dinner and Indian for the cocktail hour) which required detailed attention to the decorations; we had tents set up for the ceremony and dinner as there was a potential for rain; we needed live streaming (both on Zoom and Youtube) for family and f...

    Your review just made our day, Abbi! Thank you for being such a wonderful bride to work with. We were honored to be a part of your special day, and loved getting to coordinate all of the details! Kristen and I are sending you and Vim the warmest wishes for a beautiful marriage! What a truly amazing wedding... -Kelsi, Kristen, & The Harris Building Team

  • Stop looking for another venue. I cannot say enough praise for the Harris Building/the team there. Karri was so responsive and helpful on literally every request I had. She came in on a Sunday so my husband could see the venue after we booked. We walked into our rehearsal and Karri and her team were literally ON THE FLOOR attaching my welcome sign to a foam board so it looked better than what I had originally delivered to them. I had very specific requests for music and timing during our ceremony, they figured it out with ease and it was literally perfect. The staff was AWESOME. We had a medical emergency during our reception which they handled with ease and professionalism. They were so kind and accommodating to all of us. Finally, the space is to die for. We took pictures in the basement and they were the best pictures of all that my photographer got - gorgeous light in a beautiful setting. The set-up of the venue is perfect. I've been to so many weddings where you're either trave... Read more

  • I will continue to recommend and talk about the Harris Building all day long! Let me preface this review by saying that while I was in no way a crazy bridezilla, (all and all pretty relaxed actually!) but I am a little bit picky when it comes to this stuff. Not only have I worked in the banquet/events/wedding industry, but my husband and I both work in the design world in New York City so we care a lot about the aesthetics of the day and we really wanted a fun but traditional formal event, so I hope that lets you know how much this review means to me! The entire process of planning our wedding was completely seamless, Karri and team made it so easy for me and we truly so accommodating and a joy to work with! We met at KCAD in downtown Grand Rapids so it was really important for us to have a Grand Rapids wedding, that being said, planning the wedding from so far away, I didn't have any time to really come back and forth throughout the process. This was one of the reasons that we... Read more

  • We had our wedding at the harris building this past weekend and everything was perfect! The staff was all very helpful, especially during the room switch from ceremony to reception. We were off taking pictures between & everything was set to go for intros right when we got back! The DJ Bradley was awesome & played all of the songs we requested! He was also very helpful keeping our timeline on track. From the very beginning of planning to the end of the night, everyone was so helpful & made this much less stressful. 12/10 would recommend the harris building! We cannot thank them enough!!!

  • Our wedding day at the Harris Building exceeded expectations beyond belief! The Harris Building gave us the most gorgeous wedding ceremony and reception all at one place. Providing us with an exceptional Event Coordinator made planning our wedding the most enjoyable experience with literally no stress! They covered everything from Valet, Tables, Chairs, Linens, DJ, Photography and Floral! Eight months later and our friends and family still rave about our wedding. We just cannot express enough how wonderful every single detail was. It truly was the best day of our lives! Jeff Smoker & Tammy Brann United as one to Mr. Jeff & Tammy Smoker August 4, 2018
