Housed in the renovated historic building of the former Kindel Furniture Factory, the Goei Center is overflowing with character, charm and features you won’t find elsewhere.

“We had our wedding at the Goei Center and it was FANTASTIC! Lindsay, the wedding coordinator, was absolutely amazing to work with. She was timely in all of her responses, and always willing to go above and beyond to answer any questions or concerns that I had. We had both our ceremony and reception at the Goei Center and it turned out absolutely perfect. We received so many compliments from our guests on the timeliness of the whole day (not having several hours in between the ceremony/reception), and just how cool of a venue this was.” – Cara (Wedding Date 11.14.15)

“We had our ceremony and reception at The Goei Center and it was a dream. Lindsay, the wedding coordinator is so good at what she does. We reached out to The Goei Center more than a year in advanced. With that being said, there was tons of e-mail communication back and forth. Lindsay was not only prompt, but always friendly and professional. She really worked with us in bringing our vision to life. Any kind words for her would never do enough justice. Fast forward to the day of the wedding, Lindsay was so supportive and helpful. I remember her starting to cry before I walked down the aisle and it just made me realize that not only was she our wedding coordinator, she was our friend. I consider myself to be super detailed-oriented and with Lindsay, I met my match. All in all, we couldn't be happier with our wedding at Goei.” - Amy (Wedding Date 9.5.15)

“The coordinator, Lindsay, was amazing! So sweet and such a big help. She made everything go seamlessly. She was also very responsive to emails and questions. I would recommend her and the Goei center to everyone. The space was absolutely gorgeous and once it all came together on our wedding day, we were blown away! Everything looked more gorgeous and romantic than I could've imagined. We are so excited to get our pictures and video! They really made everything super easy for us! Thanks Lindsay!” – Brandy (Wedding Date 8.15.15)

“Lindsay and the Goei Center made my wedding day run so smoothly! From the beautiful venue, to the flowers, to the service, my expectations were exceeded in all areas.

“When we walked in to Goei shortly after being engaged we immediately knew it was perfect for us. It offered a space that has historical significance for Grand Rapids and is also quite beautiful. There was a separate area for us to have a significant cocktail hour before moving into the dining/dancing area. Lindsay was a pleasure to work with, she accommodated all of our requests and worked closely with Eastern Floral to make sure the night went off without a hitch. Throughout the planning process Lindsay kept in touch and for a bride planning a wedding while living in another state it was great that Lindsay was quick with email responses. My mom did much of the planning and she stopped by Goei quite a few times and was always met with a smile by Lindsay and quick answers to her questions. The rest of the staff from security to Goei event coordinators there during the night were incredible professionals and kept things on track. I would highly recommend Goei to anyone looking for an event space and would highly recommend Lindsay! My husband and I walked into the cocktail hour at Goei and said to each other - this is perfect, it was exactly how we had hoped it would be and we had the best night of our lives. Thanks Lindsay!” ~ Molly (Wedding date 3.14.15)
