  • Marta at EIG was an absolutely amazing person to work with. We chose this venue specifically because of her (in addition to the beautiful venue) due to her professional, organized, and knowledgeable service when we met her for our initial venue tour. Throughout the planning process she was able to keep us organized and on track, clearly and efficiently communicated with us, and answered all of our many questions no matter when we asked or how small the issue may have been. On the day of, she kept us calm as the weather was not cooperating with our plans. She worked so well with all of our vendors and we did not need to do anything at all during our wedding. We couldn't recommend Marta enough as well as Events at Independence Grove for a perfect wedding.
