If you’re looking for a short list of Metro Detroit & Ann Arbor area wedding venues to consider, I can help! If you know the style of wedding you want to have it might make it a bit easier to choose, but if not, choose a few drastically different venues to tour and help narrow your search.

Each of these industrial venues has its own uniqueness & historical significance for the city of Detroit.

  • The Eastern – An old Detroit fire station
  • Jam Handy – Formerly a film studio
  • The Whiskey Factory – An active distillery & the old Stroh’s ice cream plant
  • Ford Piquette Plant – Where the Model T was originally built in 1908

If you would like a classic, ballroom-style wedding, check out:

  • The Colony Club – A clean, opulent space you can build upon
  • The Masonic Temple – Gothic revival architecture
  • Ann Arbor City Club – A charming space with both indoor & outdoor options

Some other notable mentions:

  • St. John’s Resort (especially if you’re having a Catholic ceremony)
  • Planterra Conservatory – A beautiful seasonal greenhouse
  • The Monarch Club – The rooftop of The Element hotel for more intimate gatherings
  • Meadowbrook Hall – You get the entire estate for your wedding!
  • Zingerman Cornman Farms – A gorgeous rustic venue
  • The Gem Theatre – You get use of the entire building that was previously a working theatre
