I can't even begin to explain how truly wonderful it was to work with Lindsay @ The Goei Center. She literally got me though planning my wedding in 5 months from across the country- which allowed me to keep my sanity through it all ;) We had our wedding, cocktail hour, & reception all at the venue and it was beyond breath taking! Every question & email was answered in a very timely matter with such kindness and patience. Not only did I get to work with a expert wedding coordinator, but I also made a friend! Thank you so much for EVERYTHING Lindsay!!
I had a fantastic experience working with the Goei Center. Not only is the space absolutely beautiful but Lindsay was SO helpful with everything. She responded so quickly to all of my emails and provided much needed guidance and help from the start to the finish. I highly recommend going with the Goei Center for your special day!
The venue was absolutely gorgeous. It had so much character that decorating was hardly necessary. All the staff were extremely friendly and accommodating. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect place to share our love with family and friends.
The Goei Center is a unique wedding venue with lots of character! We had both our wedding ceremony & reception at the Goei Center and it was the perfect day! We received numerous compliments from our guests on how beautiful the venue was and how they loved how much space it offers. Lindsay, the coordinator, was fantastic to work with! She was easy to get ahold of, always answered all of my questions and made planning my wedding very easy! She is amazing at her job and was such a pleasure to work with! I am extremely happy that we chose to have our wedding day at the Goei Center!
The Goei Center was a PERFECT hidden gem on the West side of Grand Rapids! My husband was very laid back about wedding planning and tended to not care too much about most of the details but when we walked into this venue to check it out, he turned to me and he said "I don't really care about much of this planning, but I definitely want to get married here, please." For him to say that - he obviously loved it! Lindsay, the coordinator, was fabulous to work with, very responsive with emails and all questions. She made everything seamless and go fantastically. Unfortunately, she could not be there on our wedding day, but her intern did an awesome job as well. We have received numerous compliments about our wedding venue from both family and friends. We could not have chosen a better place! I recommend it to everyone when I find out they're getting married!
The Goei Center was the perfect venue for the "Best Day Ever"! Lindsay and Jane were terrific to work with and they accommodated my daughter and son in laws very spirited wedding! From the ceremony, cocktail reception and dinner, their staff was professional and we hear rave reviews from our guests. Thank you for making Alex and Ethan's day so special!
Lindsay, Jane & the staff at Goei were amazing to work with. I loved having the separate space for cocktail hour with the open floor plan. There was so much room - we had 2 sets of bags / boards out for guests to play together. Plenty of space to group up and chat also. The unique style of the venue was exactly what we wanted and our photographer got some great shots. I'd definitely recommend to anyone looking for something different from a country club. <3
The venue is absolutely beautiful and everyone at the venue was amazing. My husband and I were able to plan seamlessly from afar. We had a wonderful and absolutely loved being married at the center as well as having our reception there. I am grateful for all the help of Lindsay and Jane Goei! I wouldn't have had my special day at any other place.
The Goei Center is a magical, industrial oasis and is a perfect space for any event. Our guests could not stop raving about it. I knew the moment I walked in that it was our venue. The space decorates itself and is a hidden treasure on the West Side of Grand Rapids. Lindsay, the wedding coordinator, is absolutely amazing as is the entire staff at the Goei. I highly recommend the Goei Center to anyone looking for a fun, unique space to entertain guests.
The Goei Center was an amazing place to have our wedding! Lindsay was great to work with. She always answered emails very timely and even let us know before a vacation (months before our wedding) she would be gone. Everything at the Goei went perfect. Working with Lindsay made wedding planning easy. I was a little nervous about not being able to set up until the day of (which meant I wouldn't be there), but with the help of friends and the amazing staff everything turned out exactly as I pictured it. The large space was great, as no one felt cramped and so many guests complimented us on the fact it was the coolest venue they had ever been too. If I was to do it again, I would have it at the Goei. I have nothing but good things to say. The night went very smoothly and if there was an issue or a question the staff handled it without letting me or my husband know (even though I don't think there was).
Absolutely beautiful ceremony and reception space! Everything went flawlessly thanks to Lindsay and the Goei staff. It was an amazing day and I know all the guests had a great time! Kortney K
The Goei Center is SO beautiful. The staff is wonderful. Lindsay is so great at her job as the wedding coordinator. Everything went great. The new bar is awesome. I love that everything is on one level at this venue, makes it easier for older guests. So thankful we chose Goei Center as our venue!
Absolutely stunning venue. The guests loved the rooms and the character The Goei center has to offer. Everyone was so flexible and easy to work with. Extremely pleased with my experience with the Goei center!
We had our wedding ceremony and reception at the Goei Center. I have nothing but positive things to say. Lindsay would respond to my e-mails in less than 24 hours, which coming from a bride is a great thing to have. She made sure everything happened on time and was organized. All of my vendors were there on time.... Thanks to Lindsay. From my guest, both my husband and I, have heard nothing but positive reviews about how nicely everything flowed, how beautiful the venue was and so much more. I would highly recommend the Goei Center to anyone!
Where do I even begin? My husband Thom and I had our ceremony and reception at the Goei Center 1/7/17. From start of the wedding planning to the very end of our reception it was perfect! Lindsay and Jane made the entire process so simple with quick emails, suggestions, staying in touch with other vendors, to making sure everything was perfect the day of. The venue is absolutely stunning! The entire night we had countless guest compliment on how beautiful and elegant everything was. I could not have imagined a more perfect place for our big day! From the amazing staff to the gorgeous hard wood floors and brick walls, 10 out of 10 easily. Thank you so much for making our dream wedding exceed any expectations. Highly recommend the Goei Center! -Brooke Normandin
The Goei Center was the first and only wedding venue we looked at before deciding that it was the perfect place for us to get married and host our wedding reception. Lindsay was absolutely amazing right from the beginning! She was prompt to answer all of our questions, no matter the time or day; she made sure we were completely prepared for our wedding day; and she was even there on the day of to make sure the ceremony ran smoothly as well as the reception. We had one mix up with our cake vendor and she even went out of her way to take care of that for us with no issues! She communicated with all of our vendors throughout the process, helping to make everything run so smoothly and without stress. We really appreciate all of your help Lindsay! We couldn't have asked for a better wedding coordinator to work with! I have to mention Blake as well, because he was equally as awesome! He took over for Lindsay on the night of our wedding, and made sure everything went smoothly from there. Thank you so much, Blake! As for the venue itself, it was beautiful! We received countless compliments from our guests on how amazing and unique the Goei Center was. The set-up of the venue from the ceremony, to the cocktail hour, to the reception dinner, was all laid out so perfectly. It was a flawless spot for our New Year's Eve wedding! The Goei Center also hosted our bar. Jane worked with me on the menu and other bar related details, and she was great! All of the bartenders were amazing as well, and Cory especially, was exceptional! My guests loved him! Thank you so much to all of the staff at the Goei Center! You were all so amazing, and you helped create a wedding day that we will remember and cherish forever! We truly appreciate all of your hard work!
My wedding at the Goei Center was perfect! The entire staff was so helpful, friendly, and professional. They really went above and beyond. The event coordinator Lindsay was awesome! She was so helpful with every detail. I would recommend the Goei Center for any special event!
The Goei Center itself is a beautiful wedding and reception venue. I loved having both there so guests do not have to travel after the ceremony. Lindsay was the most helpful person I could have asked for throughout this entire process. She gave me recommendations on vendors I had no clue about! She was quick to respond to emails and was always willing to help. She releived so much stress by all of this help and her expertise. She was at the ceremony which was so kind of her to make the process go smoothly.
The Goei Center was fantastic! The venue is so modernly beautiful that few decorations were required. The chairs that come automatically with the venue are stunning, don't require any covers, and normally very expensive on their own. Everyone who helped us, from Lindsay, to Michaela, to John? (the security guard), were an absolute pleasure to work with. This venue is spacious, and interesting, and can be set up a multitude of different ways. I saw it set up four different ways, just from my visits alone! I would highly recommend The Goei Center!
The Goei Center is a BEAUTIFUL venue for any occasion, especially a wedding or reception. All of our guests were in complete awe! We received many compliments on the beauty of the venue. The warm, industrial-style interior of the building was perfect for our reception. Lindsay, Blake, and the entire staff at Goei Center exceeded our expectations and were instrumental in making our day truly special. I would recommend this venue for anyone looking for a gorgeous space to rent. Thank you to everyone at the Goei Center!
For our wedding, we used the Goei Center for both the ceremony and reception. Lindsay was wonderful! She was always very prompt with communication and helpful in every aspect of the wedding planning process, including the wedding day. She helped us coordinate and work with our various vendors to make our day a reality. Everything went smoothly, and Lindsay was there to personally make sure everything went as we had planned. Thank you, Lindsay!
Lindsay, the wedding coordinator, was a dream to work with. She made planning super easy and was really attentive to detail and quick to respond to emails. The venue looked wonderful the night of our reception, and we received so many compliments from our guests. We loved the Goei Center's unique character, yet it was classy enough for what we wanted. You won't be disappointed if you choose Goei for your big day.
We loved working with Lindsay and the rest of the staff at The Goei Center! They were all so helpful and accommodating. We got many compliments on how beautiful our wedding and wedding venue was :) Many thanks to Lindsay and The Goei Center staff- we could not have done it without you!
LOVED the Goei & Lindsay. She made everything about the day go smoothly and was very responsive to our needs. Very professional, kind, and honest. Our day was perfect - and I have no doubt that it was Lindsay that helped in that.
The Goei Center is an absolutely gorgeous, very unique venue! We had our wedding reception there in June and it could not have been a more perfect day. We've received so many compliments on our venue choice! Lindsay, the wedding coordinator at Goei, was hands down one of the best people I worked with while planning our wedding. I simply adore her. Lindsay is one of the most organized, kind, helpful people I had the pleasure of working with. Honestly, she is the one who kept me sane during the wedding planning process. You will not be disappointed if you choose Goei as your venue!!
