What our guests have to say...
We had our reception at The Ballroom, and it truly could not have been a more wonderful experience from the start—from planning to the night itself ... every detail was taken care of, easy, professional, and reasonably priced. The Ballroom includes beautiful chairs at no upgraded cost, and multiple different lighting options for various portions of the night, again at no additional cost. Additional decor needed is minimal due to the overall elegance and beauty with the massive columns and chandeliers. Finally, located in the heart of downtown Grand Rapids, out of town guests get to experience the downtown atmosphere, with multiple nearby hotel options, all within walking distance. You definitely won't regret having your wedding at this venue! Have fun planning!
I just wanted to let you know how very happy we were with The Ballroom for Anna & Stephen's wedding reception last Friday. Alaina was very helpful, the bar was great and the room looked stunning! You (Nicole) were extremely helpful through the whole process. Thank you!! It was everything we hoped for and more!
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!
