I was married at the Colony Club on 12/31/13 and worked most closely with Lauren, Nicole and Bertha. Everyone was accommodating, patient, professional, personal and easy to reach via phone and e-mail.
We booked The Colony Club within weeks of our engagement after seeing pictures online and realizing the space is even more beautiful in person. The food was fantastic, they worked well with our vendors and our guests had the best time at our wedding.

AMAZING! We just had our wedding ceremony, cocktail hour and reception on the new 4th floor. The Colony Club exceeded my expectations (which is something to say, because I'm a type A perfectionist). It is a beautiful venue, even without additional decor. Nicole and Alyssa were wonderful! They were organized, personable, professional, always in contact with great suggestions. Our day of consultant Judy was outstanding. She helped calm everyone's nerves, ran a smooth event thanks to a great rehearsal. She checked on my husband and I continuously, and made us feel so special. The head server was fabulous. He was professional, personable, and quick. The colony club is the best venue in southeast Michigan.

My wedding at the Colony Club was perfect. And when I say perfect I mean beyond my wildest dreams. I am a, shall we say... picky person... and being picky as well as being a Graphic Designer leads to me to an unfortunate situation where nothing is ever good enough. I always find fault with colors, ambiance, lighting, etc. Rarely am I fully satisfied with anything, especially visual things like design or decor.
However, my wedding at the Colony Club was absolutely 100% perfect. I honestly could not have dreamt of a more beautiful or more perfect wedding. When we walked into the ballroom for our first look at the room, tears filled my eyes and I was speechless. My husband and I just stared at each other, dumbfounded at how AMAZING the room looked. It was the most beautiful thing we had EVER seen. We knew that the Colony Club was gorgeous and we had seen it many times but once you see it all made up for your event, it is just……… see even now I am speechless. My only regret is that I cannot LIVE in that ballroom forever. The warmth, the light and the opulence was like a dream.
On top of the beauty of the venue the staff is AMAZING. Nicole works tirelessly to make sure you have a perfect event. She was there through thick and thin and truly wanted me to love my wedding. Lauren and the wedding sales team were there to answer all of my many (many!) questions and requests via email. And on the wedding day itself, the staff was just mind-blowing.. they had a team of people making sure the wedding party was happy and that everything was perfect. Judy was the absolute best and most wonderful person, she was there from start to finish. I felt so much love and care from her, I knew that she would do everything in her power to make my day wonderful, and it was. I am so grateful to all of them, thank you guys so very much for everything!!!
On top of THAT the food is the best food that I have ever had at a wedding. It is so good that it unfair to even put it in the category of "wedding food." The food of the Colony Club and Gem Theater is better than many expensive restaurants that I have been too. The halibut and filet are heaven. I just wish my wedding dress wasn't a corset so I could have eaten more!!!!
Words cannot fully describe how prefect The Colony Club is. Our wedding exceeded our wildest dreams. Our guests were so happy and so blown away that EVERY single person that I spoke to that night just went on and on about what a fantastic place it was and how great the food was. It was so wonderful.
My advice if you are thinking of the Colony Club is to do everything in your power to have your wedding there. I know it books far in advance, it is 100% worth the wait. I know it is more expensive than other places, it is 100% worth the price. The Colony Club is by FAR the best venue not only in the city of Detroit but, in my opinion, in the whole state of Michigan.
