Welcome to the Rutledge, a beautiful industrial wedding venue right in the heart of downtown Grand Rapids. This historic building has been perfectly restored to be a one-of-a-kind space to host your wedding day. The Rutledge offers seating for up to 250 guests and simple all-inclusive package pricing to make the stress of planning your Grand Rapids wedding disappear.


The wide open interior of the main space offers original hardwood floors underneath beautiful open beams on the ceiling. Large vintage windows at the front let the natural light pour in to illuminate the stunning historic features.
