Grand Volute Ballroom in Michigan Files for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy

by San Antonio Attorney

Grand Volute Ballroom in Lowell, Michigan has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy more than two months ago and the future of the business is not yet clear.  Court documents show that the wedding reception venue owes bride-to-be Leslie Austin as well as 150 other organizations and people.

Austin wants to tell others regarding her bad experience with Grand Volute Ballroom in Lowell, Michigan.  According to a Fox17 report, she reached out to the news network after learning about the story of Maria Perez.

Austin does not know what they will do with a shortfall in their wedding budget.  She paid a non-refundable deposit of $1,000 in July for her wedding next year.  She found out about Grand Volute on a website and got very interested to see it after reading great reviews about the reception venue.

She said the venue was gorgeous so she paid the deposit and signed an agreement for the wedding ceremony and reception.

But after more than two weeks, they got a letter notifying that Grand Volute was filing bankruptcy.  Even so, she was informed that her wedding date was still scheduled as agreed.

Before she signed a contract with Grand Volute, Austin said she asked about the history of the business and their future plans.  They told her they have been in the business for a long time and that they plan to keep it that way

Austin hired a lawyer after finding out that the business may cease to operate and that her money will disappear.  She spoke to Grand Volute’s lawyer, James Oppenhuizen.

Oppenhuizen told Austin that just like what he said before the reception venue’s secured creditor is going to get paid first.

Austin is currently searching for a different venue but the date of her wedding seems to be taken already.  Not like Perez, she said Grand Volute did not propose to move her event this year to utilize her deposit money.
