One of the most unique and elegant venues in Grand Rapids, The Ballroom at McKay hosts lavish weddings, intimate gatherings and groundbreaking events both large and small. The recently remodeled 10,900 square foot space features soaring twenty-six foot ceilings, a classic marble interior and subtle contemporary touches.
The Ballroom was one of the best pieces of our day! They were so accommodating to all of our ideas. You won't find a more beautiful space! You can have ceremony and reception in the same space, we already planned for church ceremony.

We hosted our wedding reception here on 3/9/19 and it was absolutely spectacular. Nicole was friendly, hospitable, and extremely accommodating to us from day one - she went out of her way to help us fulfill some special touches we wanted at our wedding, and I was so pleased. Abby, our day-of coordinator, was fantastic. She was the perfect blend of behind the scenes and available when we needed her. I saw some negative reviews on here leading up to my wedding (it appears there was some sort of snafu at one specific wedding and many people commented on it ), which made me a little nervous, but our day was absolutely, 100% perfection. I could not have been happier with how wonderful our wedding was. Abby was pleasant and professional not only to me&the groom, but also to everyone else who went to her with questions. The day went off flawlessly and we 100% would return to use their venue again. It was the perfect day, and Nicole (and Abby!) played a huge part in that. Thank you so much for making the day of our dreams happen :) I HIGHLY recommend using Ballroom at McKay!!

We had our wedding at the McKay Ballroom in August 2018. From my first inquiry to the day of the wedding, I was blown away with their customer service. Nicole was extremely quick to respond to any communication and very thorough. We were able to get in early the day of the wedding to set up, things ran smoothly through the entire night, and the pictures that we were able to get on the rooftop were the icing on the cake. Our guests still talk about how beautiful, classic, and unique our venue was and we could not be happier that this is where we chose to start this chapter of our lives together.

The Ballroom at McKay is a beautiful venue! We celebrating with our friends and family (approx. 150 guests) for our ceremony and reception on 11.03. Nicole and Kelly from the venue were exceptional and detailed oriented every step of the way. The venue was set up just the way we had envisioned. Even day of we were able to communicate a few changes that they made possible. Would highly recommend if you are looking for a wedding venue in the heart of downtown GR!
