I don't even know where to begin with this review! I planned my wedding from Texas and Lacey was there with me every step of the way. She answered any and all of my ridiculous questions and helped me with details I didn't even know I had to make a decision on. The staff was beyond amazing and the food was wonderful! I promise you want to have your wedding here 😊
Our big day went off without a hitch and the working with Macatawa was incredibly easy leading up to the day. It was a gorgeous day at a beautiful venue. We couldn't have been happier.
Fantastic venue for our wedding! Enjoyed the outdoor space and beautiful grounds as well.
This is a beautiful venue for both ceremony and reception. Our wedding was October 1st of this year and everything was perfect. The dining room is separated from the bar and dancing area which was really nice. Lacey was super helpful with putting together all of the plan details. My only complaint is that pop is not included in the food or bar charge so they ask for a separate credit card for that. When you are paying $5,000+ for food and alcohol that should be included in that cost, in my opinion. Overall we had a great experience and would highly recommend this venue.
Great venue! We were very happy with everything and would highly recommend Macatawa Legends. Beautiful venue and grounds, great staff, excellent food, and fairly priced.

We held our wedding and reception at MLG&CC. We were hoping for an outdoor wedding, but the weather didn't cooperate. It wasn't a problem, as the entry area of the clubhouse is beautiful, and all our guests fit. Lacey is great to work with. The food was good, and the staff is awesome.
Best venueReviewed on 9/20/2015 Myranda J
We used Macatawa for both our ceremony and reception and I am so glad we did! Lacey, their event coordinator, was so helpful and answered all of my questions! The food was incredible, we had to many compliments!! The venue is beautiful and the staff was so friendly. We decided to do plated meals because it was not too much more and the staff got out the food very quickly! They cut the cake for us and had it all ready to go in the dance room. They made sure everything was ready at all times. And at the end of the night they helped clean up! If I could do it all over again there is not doubt I would use Macatawa again for our venue. Thank you guys for making our day the best!
Amazing venueReviewed on 9/20/2015 Myranda J
I used Macatawa for my wedding ceremony and reception and it was the best decision I could have made! Not only was it extremely beautiful, but it was affordable too! Lacey, their event coordinator was so helpful and took so much of her time to answer all of my questions. She was even there the day of my wedding to help out! Their chef met with us himself during our food tasting, which I really thought was nice. The food...the best I have ever had! We received the most compliments on the food and the reception site! Everyone couldn't believe how beautiful it was. They also helped recommend other vendors to me for DJ services and chair rental (John Becker from Dream Productions and Taylor Rental) which made it that much easier for me. Thank you to everyone at Macatawa for making our wedding day perfect!!!!!

Fabulous Set up!Reviewed on 6/05/2012 Danielle V
We were able to use 2 rooms, we used one room for dining and cake cutting, but we also had a second room with an outdoor patio that also had our dance floor and our bar. It could not have gone smoother, it got people out of their seats and dancing! Professional staff, and Lacey their event coordniator was great!
