The Goei Center is an amazing place - the exposed brick walls and hardwood floors were exactly what we were looking for in a venue! This facility is large enough to host the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception for 125 people and not be crowded (this was important to us since we were planning a winter wedding). We received lots of positive feedback from our guests about this beautiful venue; and the plus side was that there wasn't much need to decorate, since it's a showroom for Eastern Floral. :)
The layout that Kylie (coordinator) created worked brilliantly! She was very easy going, responsive, and knowledgable about the venue and flowers.
Because the Goei Center is home to some businesses, we had to have an evening wedding. This wasn't really a concern for us though, since we wanted our family and friends to party with us all night! We really couldn't have asked for anything more for our wedding!

The Goei Center was so beautiful and the staff was always very helpful. Kylie, the coordinater, had so many wonderful ideas and made the wedding planning process so much more enjoyable!

We had our wedding reception at The Goei Center. It was WONDERUFL! Kylie was very easy to work with; quick to respond to phone calls & emails. Although this venue was more expensive than others in the area, it was well worth it. I got so many compliments on the space itself during & after the reception. People really enjoyed the fact that they could be in one half of the room dancing & being loud, or in the other half of the room quietly talking & visiting with others. Although you have to have your flowers through Eastern Floral, they were willing to work with me. I re-did my quote 1 or 2 times until I got what I wanted.
The Goei Center, pronounced "Go E" Center, is one of Grand Rapids' best kept secrets. Formerly the Kindel Furniture Factory, the Goei Center is a contemporary, loft-style venue with urban elegance and artistic class and features some of the most modern and sophisticated design elements.
