My fiancée and I are beginning our planning stage for our wedding. We live in Lansing, but because of my large family, we are having our wedding in Grand Rapids. While I'm very familiar with the city, I'm having a hard time thinking of places for our ceremony and reception just off google.
We would like to have our ceremony and reception in the same place if possible, so at first we thought of parks. But we didn't find many that had enclosed shelters that we liked.
So I'm wondering if any of you could help me out with ideas. We're expecting 100-150 people, and not looking to spend a lot of money. Under/close to $5,000. We'd also like to provide our own catering and bar/alcohol services. So this is a little tricky.
My sister was trying to tell me about a great building off the river, next to the Public Museum, but she couldn't remember the name and I couldn't find it anyway.
Any help is greatly appreciated!
