The Sweet House

The Sweet House is the ultimate choice for your wedding celebration. Contact us today to book your special day!

We are a charming historic wedding venue conveniently located in downtown Grand Rapids, Michigan. This venue is a testament to the beauty and style of an Italianate Villa in the mid-1860s. This house is now in the care of the Sweet House Foundation who has lovingly maintained the timeless beauty and historical significance of the home. Couples may enjoy hosting the wedding event of their dreams in this truly incredible mansion as they create a celebration to remember.

The Sweet House is the perfect location for a Wedding. We are able to accommodate the ceremony, dinner, and reception all under the same roof!

The Sweet House offers several event rooms, each adorned with stylish decor and individual themes. The Hazel Vandenberg Auditorium/Ballroom offers a stylish, light-filled ceremony space with a dance floor, cream walls, and tasteful decor, comfortably accommodating up to 150 seated guests. Desdemona’s Dining Room offers space for up to 125 guests for wedding receptions, and ceremonies, featuring a vintage, sophisticated ambiance. The Sweet House also offers several smaller rooms that can be used for engagement parties, rehearsal dinners, cocktail parties, and more.
