historic character. Timeless events.

The Harris Building was built in 1892 on the site of the former Grand Rapids Union Brewery. The second floor features a large domed ballroom with 18-foot ceilings, and the third floor has skylight-illuminated hallways. The entire building is a testament to history with its brick walls and craftsman style woodwork. Our historic character is the perfect backdrop to your timeless event.
My husband and I had our wedding there and everything was wonderful! The staff is so friendly and on top of everything. They were so easy to work with. I would highly recommend The Harris Building to anyone.


I recently got married at the Harris Building and I can honestly say it was the best experience. Not only is it a beautiful location, but it comfortably fit all of our guests (150) and was easy for us to have our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception all in one spot. I did not have to stress about flowers, decorations, flipping the room, or flow of the night. My husband, our families/guests, and I were able to enjoy the night and celebrate our marriage. The D.J. was AMAZING. We told him we wanted everyone to be on the dance floor the whole night and this is exactly what we got! He helped with the flow of the night and (getting everyone set up, announcing us, telling people when to give speeches and so on). I can't speak highly enough about our experience and the people at The Harris Building. They truly helped make our special day amazing and stress-free!


Went to venue for fund-raising event. Never knew it existed, but loved it! Highly recommend.


We had our wedding at the harris building this past weekend and everything was perfect! The staff was all very helpful, especially during the room switch from ceremony to reception. We were off taking pictures between & everything was set to go for intros right when we got back! The DJ Bradley was awesome & played all of the songs we requested! Everyone was so helpful & made this much less stressful, we cannot thank them enough!!!

The staff is awesome and always smiling. They are very friendly and the DJs know how to keep the dance floor rockin.


I got married on Oct. 27, 2018 at the Harris Building, and let me tell you. IT WAS PERFECTION. I felt like my vision was magnified and even better than I envisioned thanks to everyone. All of the staff are prompt in their replies, friendly, kind, professional, and fun!


We had our wedding at the Harris building and it turned out wonderfully! Karri was super helpful, Aime did a great job with floral and the bar service was awesome. My guests loved the venue vibe and the transition from ceremony to reception worked out well. The valet was easy to use except for the end of the night- kind of a cluster. Other than that- we loved it and had the best time! A great place for a wedding and very organized.
Great place to go for a wedding/reception. Unique looking inside, stayed cool all night in the summer.
