The DreamTeam.

event planners holland michigan


We’re Candice and Brian Grant, owners of Port 393.


We believe that couples navigating the course of life together should enjoy the engagement process and be given all the tools necessary for a successful occasion. The same is true of planning any event – the process should be easy and fun!

We poured our hearts and souls into creating Port 393 and incorporated all the simplicity, beauty and elegance we wished to find for our own wedding. We chose not to remodel the previous structure on the 393 Cleveland property because we did not want to settle.

We are proud to provide an exceptional view of the lake, a relaxing rooftop patio, a luxurious lounge, a large modern reception space, and every other minor detail necessary to create an enjoyable planning process.

“The Magic is in The Team”
