Marta was hands down amazing. She was so responsive, flexible and had an answer for everything. The entire process of working with her made planning my wedding so easy. I can't put in to words how thankful I was to have her help me.

Marta at Independence Grove was gray to work with, and on the night of our wedding stayed late to make sure everything was perfect! The venue was gorgeous, and you can’t beat the sunset view we had during dinner. Food was absolutely amazing, we are still getting compliments 3 weeks after our wedding!!

Alyson is the BEST! She went over and above any expectations we had as to professionalism, responsiveness and flexibility! I relied on her so much during the wedding process, and she became one of my biggest supporters when it came to the fine details. She went over and above expectations to the extent that she made a special trip to get some of the items we had forgotten so that they would be in place on the wedding day! Alyson - your dedication to our day helped make it even more special!! Many thanks!!!!!

My wife and I loved the venue, and the team at IG was top notch. Stewart and team know how important our special day was, and were all so accommodating to our needs. Marta, our coordinator, was everything that we needed. She was on her game 100% of the time and handled all problems - there was little to no stress on us. The value on what we paid for vs. what was provided was superb. They worked with all of our vendors so well, and everything was seamless. We continue to have guests tell us it was their favorite wedding, and that the food was amazing. There should be an entirely different comment section on the food - their capabilities are astounding, as you have about 28 pages of different hors d'oueuvres / entrees / late night food to pick from. If you panic with too many options, I would suggest the chicken piccata or the parmesan crusted white fish. IG even gave us a bag of leftovers the next day! While writing this review, I honestly tried to avoid 5 stars where possible, as perfect scores are so rare. However, IG never fell short in any category. If you are considering them to be your venue, I would sign up as soon as possible!

I just had my wedding here and I could not have been happier with how everything turned out. I have heard nothing but rave reviews from our guests about the food, how good the cocktails were, and how beautiful the venue was. On top of all of that, the staff here is just wonderful, and that was everyone from our wedding coordinator, to the bartenders, waiters, and golf cart drivers. Special shout out to our coordinator Marta, who made sure the whole process went smoothly and helped to give me and my husband our dream wedding. I have zero complaints and would highly recommend them for any event you might be planning.

I'm not even sure where to start! It was an absolute pleasure working with Marta and Stewart from start to finish. They are easy to talk to, beyond accommodating and made sure that our wedding was PERFECT! Marta is extremely detail-oriented and I couldn't imagine having a better coordinator. The venue is stunning and we got so many compliments from our friends/family and the FOOD! The food is delicious and much higher quality than standard catering I've had at other venues. Thank you IG for making our wedding a dream come true! :)

Hi Maddie....Marta and I are thrilled that you were so happy. As you know, the IG team works very hard to please all of our couples. You were also a true pleasure to work with. Good luck!! Stop by and visit anytime.

The entire process was great! The ceremony was done at another location so we only had our reception here. Stewart and Allison were very helpful and did a fantastic job with the initial planning and the food selection. Since we were having an afternoon reception, we chose to have themed buffet stations.... pasta, seafood, sushi bar, potato and a carving station. It was AMAZING!! The function director Israel and his Chef, kitchen and wait staff were AWESOME!! They attended to out every need and the stations and room overall was designed and laid out beautifully. Our day was FANTASTIC!!! Thanks to everyone who assisted in making our wedding day a memorable one. I would highly recommend anyone to have their event here. You won't be disappointed!

Believe us when we say there is no wedding like the one you will have with Events at Independence Grove! Our wedding coordinator Marta was absolutely incredible from Day 1 when we stopped by the venue one afternoon “just to look around.” Marta has since been so attentive, understanding, accommodating, and extremely helpful in all matters regarding food selections, table seating charts, design of the venue layout, and tips/tricks/ideas for how to best execute our wedding. I must have personally emailed Marta 100 times and every time, she answered within mere hours and was always the most pleasant and cheerful person. I always thought, “oh I don’t need a wedding planner/coordinator, I am so organized and I can totally do this myself.” Let me tell you how wrong I was! Without Marta and the staff at Independence Grove, our wedding would not have come to life. We are so grateful, we cannot speak highly enough of this place. Every guest commented on how beautiful the building was, how clean everything was, how kind the staff was, and how great the food was. OH, THE FOOD! Trust us when we say, come here for the food alone. Everything was delicious, huge portions, and so many options. Every guest left feeling full and then some. The venue/Marta also works so well with all your vendors to make the day run smoothly! We are beyond happy with the whole day, it was absolutely perfect. Thank you Marta, Stewart, Israel, JC, and staff of Events at Independence Grove for our wedding day!!
