My Husband knew from the start he wanted to have Italian American Cultural Society for our wedding(Which I am so happy I let him choose). I will have to say working with Alex, Lindsey and Brittany was amazing. They truly made our day the best day ever and answered all my crazy questions. Our guest are still talking about how amazing the food was. Not only did we have our wedding here we had our shower and both events turned out amazing!! Once again the food is AMAZING! For all the planning and stress that goes on in a wedding Alex and Lindsey made this process so smooth and enjoyable. I can not thank everyone there enough! My sister in law is having her baby shower there this week and can not wait to eat!
Our Wedding was just amazing. You will not go wrong with the Italian American Cultural Society. The staff was fast, incredible and accommodating, this includes the coordinator, the bartenders, the waiter and even the coat checker! I did not have to worry about a thing, they had it all under control. The food was awesome (family style), we received so many compliments. My favorite part of dinner was the bowtie pasta with the garlic sauce and the chicken florentine, the grooms was the red meat, of course. We did the appetizers that were walked around by the staff, so happy I did that, all four app choices were fantastic! I really do not think there is a bad choice on the menu. The hall itself is very pretty brought together with gorgeous linens and flowers. The lobby area is really nice as well and we were able to display a slideshow, some photos and seating chart there. The grand piano was playing as guests walked in, very nice ambiance. The center did a grand back drop for the wedding party and that was perfect, it added the importance and height factor we were looking for. I love the location of the hall too. It is near Hall Road but nestled back on Romeo Plank and not surrounded by buildings. Making it easy on my guests that were traveling from all parts Macomb County, St. Clair County or out of towners staying at hotels near M-53. During the planning process, it was nice to be able to sit down with the coordinator and go over everything. I had asked quite a few questions for opinions and such via email and or phone and she never made me feel like I was being a burden. And all the answers were responded to very promptly. Do the the food tasting prior to your wedding, I brought my groom and my maid of honor, it provided insight on how the hall operates and you get to taste and see everything.
My wedding was outstanding at the IACS, thanks to Alex's, Lindsey's and their staff's hard work. After looking at many venues, we decided on IACS in Clinton Twp because they offered more food for the price, I loved the outside ceremony location (which was very important to me) and I liked the idea that we could have the venue to ourselves if we booked both rooms. I will be honest and say that I wasn't impressed with their venue by looking at their website (back in 2015) and that was before they were on WeddingWire with the nicer pictures, but I was very pleasantly surprised at how nice it was when I went to visit the location in person. My guests have not stopped raving about the food! Many have said that it is the best they've ever had at a wedding and they liked that it wasn't typical wedding food. Our package came with 4 hor d'oeuvres but they actually served 5 instead. It seems they didn't have the 4th hor d'oeuvre we picked so instead they substituted it with 2 other ones, one of them being calamari and I am happy they did because our guests LOVED the calamari...said it was the best they've ever had. Many guests also said it was the fanciest wedding they've ever been to. My husband and I think what contributed to that is due to the decorations I picked (Top That Event), the string quartet (Rondo Quartet), but also because of the hor d'oeuvres being butler passed and the top notch service the hall provided. In addition, people raved about how beautiful the ceremony was. The pouring rain stopped a few hours before our ceremony began and the IACS staff did a great job of making sure the 190 chairs outside were set up and everything looked great. Alex even made sure there was a nice rug over a wet spot on the grass for us. And I can't forget to mention how much I appreciated Alex and Lindsey's flexibility and help with suggestions, switching things out, and answering the thousands of questions we had. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
I had a great experience with the Italian American Cultural Society. Mindy was great about answering all my questions whenever I emailed her or called her! I had a lot of questions and she was very patient with me. The food is great and I was reassured by my guests after my wedding on how great the food was, especially the beef Wellington. I highly suggest the Emerald Package!! After looking at many other venues, nothing could beat IACS emerald package. My husband and I felt very comfortable during our reception and did not have to worry about one thing. The staff took care of everyone very well. I also suggest having IACS decorate the head table... it was worth the add-on price and adds a really nice touch to the atmosphere in the room. If you are having more than 200 guests I would suggest adding on an extra bar tender as well. I would definitely recommend IACS to a anyone looking for a reception site! You will not be disappointed in this beautiful venue.
My husband and I married in February and I would do it all over again right here at the IACS! The whole reason I booked my reception at the IACS was for the coordinator Lindsey, unfortunately she left the company in the middle of us planning . You can imagine how stressed I was! Mindy who took over was quick to ensure she would make sure everything was just how I had originally planned with Lindsey (thank you so much Mindy!!!). Mindy made so many great suggestions and helped me make all of my last minute decisions. Everything turned out just how I hope it would, absolutely beautiful. All of our guest raved about the delicious food and impeccable service. Alex the manager went above and beyond making sure everything was perfect throughout the evening. I would totally recommend having any major event hear! A huge thank you to all of the staff who worked our wedding!
This is a beautiful venue. The food is spectacular, we chose the Emerald Package, which is really a very good value for your money. Mindy is great to work with, she answers all emails promptly, does not mind all the questions that may arise. The hall decorated the head table so beautifully. I liked the complimentary valet parking, the piano and the fireplace in the lobby. The guest were very impressed by the butler passed appetizers. It was such a fun, enjoyable evening. We utilized the hall only, not the outdoor facility as the wedding ceremony was held in a close-by church. You can't go wrong here.
We had an amazing experience at IACS. From start to finish, we couldn't have had a better venue for our wedding. We worked with Lindsey on our planning and she was extremely helpful with everything. All of our questions were answered quickly, she gave good suggestions, and was all around amazing. On our actual day, they set everything up for us, and the service was impeccable. The venue was beautiful, and set up perfectly. The food was so good! Everyone of our guests were extremely complimentary on everything with the hall! All around this is an amazing place. I cannot say enough good things about it, but our reception here was perfect. I would highly recommend IACS for anyone looking for a beautiful hall for their wedding! It was perfect!
Great place! Our wedding was September 24, 2016 and I cant say how many people told me the food was the best that they had at a wedding! Talking to Alex, everything we wanted he made it work! I guess its the benefit of being the owner and chef! Always a plus that being Romanian and having Italian food left a great impression on our guests! Can't wait for my next trip there. The staff is friendly and we didn't feel rushed when courses were being served. Would recommend this to anyone. Also, a benefit is that they have everything included as far as table covering and linen with the food.
On behalf of our families, I highly recommend IACC for your wedding. Our experiences were awesome! From the ceremony held in their beautiful trellis ( by the way, even though the walk is long all of our guests enjoyed being able to view everyone in the wedding party from start to arrival at altar!) to the fabulous reception indoors. Beautiful views from all the windows and a perfect backdrop for the head table. Lindsay was wonderful to work with - helping to plan and coordinate the rehearsal, the ceremony, the reception, the setup and the decor. Alex made awesome recommendations for the menu which were spot on. A month later we are still getting compliments on how lovely everything looked and how great the food was. Everything went beyond our expectations!!
The IACS was AMAZING! I am so glad we chose to go forward with using them as the venue for our wedding. Lindsey and Alex were exceptional to work with and made planning so simple and stress free. Even when I had a million emails and questions Lindsay was always so sweet and available to meet with me to make sure everything was perfect. We used both ballrooms and the patio and there was more than enough space for our 220+ guests. The windows add a beautiful touch that look out to the pond and wooded area located behind the building. Our guests are still raving about how delicious the food was - the butler passed hors d'oeuvres, dinner, and pastries. Lindsey accompanied me to my linen appointment and helped me to choose the perfect table covers, runners, and overlays. They also put together a gorgeous backdrop for behind the sweetheart table that was included in our package. I highly recommend having your next event here - you will not be disappointed one bit!!
I had a such a great experience with the Italian American Cultural Society. Everyone that came to the wedding said it was beautiful and the service was excellent. I would have to agree, and that's pretty much the reason I chose the place. Lindsay and Alex were awesome and food was top notch..z Alex has one heck of a talent to prepare food that good every time!:) The venue has windows all over and is right in front of a body of water which made it such a gorgeous view. Our guests loved being both inside and outside on a perfect September night. We have no complaints at all. Thank you to everyone at IACS!!
We couldn't be more pleased with our selection of the Italian American Cultural Society for our wedding reception venue. From the beauty of the space itself (with windows, a patio and large dance floor), to the food, to the exceptional service, we could not be more pleased. We worked with Lindsey, and she was excellent in ensuring all of our needs were met. The day of our wedding, there was a large party prior to ours. The staff did a phenomenal job flipping the entire venue with time to spare. The night of, the staff was friendly and hospitable to our guests. Brittany, the event manager for the evening, was consistent in checking in with us and our parents to ensure everything was going well. And the food!! We received many compliments from guests that this was the best food they ever had at a wedding. Book soon to reserve your day! Highly recommend.
I had the most AMAZING experience at the Italian American Cultural Center for my wedding. The food was amazing, service was spectacular, and they were very accommodating. Would do it again in a heartbeat!
My husband and I had the most perfect wedding at the Italian American Cultural Society. Lindsey and Alex were absolutely wonderful to work with! They both had great suggestions and were so easy to talk to. Lindsey was always available and easy to reach. She really went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect! It was so nice to work with a wedding coordinator who was always willing to listen to your ideas and suggest other great ideas of her own. It was absolutely gorgeous! Our guests also raved about how great the food was. It was fantastic! We received so many compliments about the wonderful food and the beautiful venue. It is now a year later and we still receive compliments from our guests. I would recommend this place to everyone! My maid of honor is having her wedding here next year and I cannot wait to see what a wonderful job they do again!! Thank you to everyone at IACS for making our wedding so memorable!
Look no further! This place will stop at nothing to make sure you happy with every little detail of your day! I cannot say enough good things about the IACS. I had my wedding ceremony, reception and wedding shower here. First of all, the staff is fantastic! They were so attentive and kind, even when I was having bridezilla moments, haha! The grounds are so beautiful. They really take pride in making sure everything is perfect. Most importantly though… the food! I’m a foodie so the food was very very important to me. It was top notch! I had the pleasure to meet with Chef Alex to plan our wedding day menu down to last detail. I was quite high maintenance about some things and he excelled every single expectation I had. We are STILL, almost a year later, getting compliments on the food and venue. We even got thank you cards from guests for being invited to such a beautiful wedding. Bravo IACS! Bravo!
We had the most amazing wedding at the Italian American Cultural Center! Everything went perfect and I never had to worry about anything, even during the planning process. Lindsey was so helpful and she was always quick to answer my questions or provide input when asked. The reception went so well and I received so many compliments from guests on the food. Everyone loved the outdoor patio overlooking the water as well. Overall, we are so happy we went with the Italian American Cultural Center! It was the perfect venue!
We just got married on July 16th and our wedding was incredible!! Lindsey M. was our wedding coordinator and did a tremendous job! She covered everything that we could have needed, answered all of our questions, and was available to talk 24/7. I would highly recommend this place to anyone!! One of our big wants was to be the only wedding going on at a particular venue. We were able to have just that here!! We are still getting calls about how tasty the food was and how incredible of a date it was. If we were to get married again--I would book this venue in a heartbeat!
My wedding was Amazing!! It was more than I could have imagined! The staff at the Italian American Cultural Center were amazing to say the least. Lindsey was the one in charge of my wedding, she was so kind and was wanted to do what it would take to make my special day exactly how I wanted it. Not to mention we planned this wonderful wedding in a little over 2 months!! My guests couldn't believe we planned it in only two months! It honestly looked like we had been planning it for a lot longer. I know all my guests absolutely loved the Food! I still dream about the food it was that good. We had Cesar Salad to start off, then the amazing Chicken Florentine, Beef Tenderloin Tips, Fettuccine Alfredo which was delicious. And for sides we had the Parmesan Redskin Potatoes and Fresh Green beans with Butter and Garlic which are mouth watering!! I Highly Recommend the pizza for a late night snack it was so yummy! The Venue was very spacious and clean. There were plenty of beautiful places inside and outside to take lovely pictures that made our day even better! I absolutely love the Italian American Cultural Center and I definitely plan on going back for some of my Events in the future! I recommend using the IACS for any of your events! You guys are Amazing!!
I had my wedding shower Feb 2016 and wedding reception 4/30/2016 at IACS and it was a dream come true. The hall and lighting was beautiful. I was able to drop almost everything off before the event and Lindsay made everything so seamless and perfect, I can not thank the staff enough. Even though the wedding was a few months ago, our family and friends are still talking about how AMAZING the food was! I could not have asked for better service before or during the event. Thank you so much IACS. Marie & Neal Diebold
The IACC was a beautiful location for our June wedding, complete with a beautiful building and grounds, delicious Italian food, and great service. Alex and Lindsey were wonderful to work with and were willing to accommodate our specific requests without a problem. The IACC really made sure our day was special and ran smoothly. I also love that the many windows gave us natural light, which I really wanted in a venue. I would definitely reccomend this venue - actually, a friend is getting married there this fall!
The Italian American Cultural Society was absolutely perfect for our wedding day! My husband and I got married their in June. The whole staff was awesome. Alex, Brittany and Lindsey did an amazing job, constantly checked on us to make sure things were going great. The wait staff did a great job as well. We had so many compliments on the food! We had no left overs everyone loved it
My husband and I loved having our wedding at IACS! It is such a beautiful location with all of the windows looking out onto the patio and pond. The food was also amazing! We kept hearing about how great it was from our guests. The event coordinator Lindsey was wonderful to work with. She made the planning really fun and stress free. She had wonderful ideas and was always so accommodating. The staff went out of their way to make sure we were happy with our selections, including our menu, linens, chair covers, seating layout, etc. I would highly recommend this venue!
My husband and I got married a few weeks ago and our reception was held at the Italian American Cultural Society. Everything was absolutely perfect! Alex and Lindsey were great to work with- very flexible and accommodating. The night of the wedding I didn't have to worry about a thing. Although Lindsey wasn't the manager that evening, the manager who was there was awesome. She checked in with my husband and I frequently to make sure everything was going as planned and to see if we needed anything. I would highly recommend this venue to anyone!
My husband an I were married in May. Our reception was held at the Italian American Cultural Center. Everything was beautiful. Alex and his staff went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect. Working with them was easy and stress free. They were very accommodating and flexible. I always felt confident that we were in the best of hands. Two months later my guests are still talking about how incredible the food and experience was. The cultural center itself is beautiful inside and out. I would highly recommend them. They helped make our wedding perfect! My family has also been to the IACC for other events such as graduation and anniversary parties. All were also wonderful experiences. Everyone should check them out!
Our wedding was in November 2015 and we can't say enough great things. Every single person that was involved in our wedding planning and our wedding day were amazing!! Our day was perfect, food was amazing, and the room was beautiful!!! Everyone who worked had a smile and was happy to be there for us and our guests. We still have friends and family talking about our wedding each time we go to a family event. Thank you so much Lindsey and Alex and all of your staff!!!!
