"Despite being a joyous time in our lives, let's face it: weddings are stressful. When planning a wedding it's an incredible asset to have a venue whose staff is able to accomodate changing plans, are easily accessible for communicating concerns or questions and above all seem to genuinely care that your special day is as perfect as possible.

To this end, Julie and Kelly and the rest of staff went above and beyond and we'll be forever grateful for all their hard work making our reception a cherished moment in our lives. The Grande Event Center is an exceptional venue; from the chandeliers to the trim work, it exudes class and craftsmanship and is sure to be the premier reception hall in North Bay for years to come.

Many thanks again to all the staff for a day that went off without a hitch."
