  • We absolutely loved having our wedding ceremony and reception at Great Lakes Culinary Center. Taylor was great every step of the way and helped us reimagine our wedding after postponing, decreasing the guest list, and moving outside due to COVID. The main reason we chose this venue was the food and it met every expectation!
