How did you hear about us?

I was married here recently and it was perfect! We had plenty of space for the ceremony for over 200 guests and a wedding party of 16. Kelly and Jill were absolutely amazing and a sheer joy to work with! Love them! This was our fairytale wedding!

The Grand Reserve is a perfect place for any kind of reception/party. The staff and owner went beyond my expectations to make sure my special day was perfect. Kelly was easy to get in touch with and answered all questions I had. She remained calm during my freak outs, which in turn made me relax and remember to enjoy the moment.



GORGEOUS venue!! The staff are so accommodating our needs and are super flexible with what we want to do/how we want to set up. The food was great, the atmosphere is unique and it’s overall a wonderful place to celebrate and have a good time.
