“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

“My daughter's wedding was on New Year's Eve 2014. We wanted a venue where the wedding ceremony and the reception could be at one place just in case a Michigan Winter Storm hit. We looked at several venues, but kept comparing everything to The Goei Center. So, we booked it and we are so glad we did! The old factory atmosphere mixed with elegant chandeliers and glittering table decor made for a stunning New Years Eve party atmosphere. The wedding coordinator, Lindsay was a dream to work with, walking us through every step of the planning . We would highly recommend The Goei Center for any event or wedding. You will be glad you did!” ~ Laurie

‘Event space was large and unique. The most compliments that I got on my wedding was the event space l chose. It allowed for the ceremony to flow into a cocktail space which flowed into a large reception area. The best part, no public disruptions. Goei was perfect.” ~ Ashley

“We used Goei Center for my daughter's reception. Since it is difficult to get beautiful outdoor photos in Michigan in March, it was great to have the exposed brick, plants, flowers, and great decor to use for their wedding party photos. Numerous guests commented on the beautiful and spacious venue as well. We would recommend this venue for weddings or corporate events.” ~ Jill
