Astounding! Magnificent! Perfect. Our wedding on 5/21/2016 couldn't have been smoother and more perfect in our eyes. The Inn was an absolutely beautiful venue from the chapel, to the ballroom, to the hotel and grounds and everything in between. We have had endless compliments of the venue selection and I can't speak more highly of it. Kathy K., our chapel contact was super organized and helpful with all of our questions and always kept us in the know. Linda Johnson, our events manager was beyond pleasant and felt like one of the family by the end of our time with her. Shante Parks, our hotel contact for all our reservation needs was on point with everything and offered the very best she could to us. These three as well as others were truly superstars. The food was incredible! All of it; which was a lot. Another high point for compliments from our guests. Everything is just so well put together, organized, seamless. We could not be happier with our choice.
My husband and I were married at The Inn at St. John's this past April. First off the Chapel is absolutely stunning and any bride will feel like a princess walking down the beautiful aisle, where all of the pews face. Absolutely impeccable. We had not even considered getting married in a Catholic church until we walked in there. For our reception we didn't want a regular banquet hall, something different. Our reception was in the Atrium, which is impressive alone. All you need is your centerpieces, no fancy uplighting around our anything like that. It is guaranteed to takes your guests breath away when they walk through those doors after cocktail hour in the gorgeous gratto. Surprisingly affordable and worth every penny. The menu options are so difficult to choose because they are all amazing. Everything was perfectly cooked and the best food from any wedding I have ever attended. Not the usual beef or chicken options with steamed veggies. Every member of the staff was a delight to work with and easily reachable for any questions you have during the process. You also get comped an amazing suite for booking one of their halls. We were given the Presidential Suite, which had a full kitchen, dining area, living room, and entire upstairs loft, with 2 restrooms. Everything was absolutely top notch and I highly recommend.
I still still cannot get over how absolutely gorgeous our wedding was. I would recommend the Inn at St. John's absolutely anyone, without hesitation. From our initial meeting with Ella, you could really tell how much she cared about making our day the best it could be. Ella was constantly available by phone or email and always willing to help and offer advice when needed. She always had a way of calming me down with my crazy off the wall questions. The day of the wedding was PERFECT. My husband and I are still talking about how impressed we were with everything. The day of coordinators were a huge help with all of my decor and extra stuff like table numbers, place cards, guest book and bathroom baskets, etc....everything was exactly how I wanted it! Our guests are also still talking about the quality of service, how great the food was and how perfect their steaks were cooked, the drinks and how generous the bar tenders were, the hotel rooms, the staff, everything. I could go on and on. I could not be happier with our wedding and will continue to recommend the Inn to anyone looking for a beautiful reception venue. The Grande Ballroom is simply beautiful. - June 10,2017
When my husband and I first stepped foot in the Atrium, we knew our venue search was over. The indoor/outdoor feel was so beautiful and unique. Leading up to the wedding, the venue staff were phenomenal to work with. They mirrored our excitement throughout the whole process and made us feel that we were the only couple getting married that day. The food was excellent. With the the wide variety and the ability to accommodate any food restrictions we were able to make sure that everyone at our reception was happy and well fed. All our guests were raving to us about how amazing the hor d'oeuvres tasted. The bartending staff was great and even made sure to a set of our signature cocktails ready to hand off to my husband and I the moment we stepped into our reception. The Atrium was absolutely gorgeous the day of our wedding, it was everything we dreamt it would be and more. Once the sun set, the reflection of candles on the glass ceiling gave off this amazing, romantic vibe. Having accommodations for our guest to stay on site was really convenient, especially since we had many out of towners at our wedding. The rooms are very nice. I would highly recommend staying in the Presidential Suite. I was able to stay there the night before and night of the wedding. For the morning of the wedding--it was definitely large enough for my bridal party, my mom and I to comfortably get hair and make up done. It also has a full kitchen!! The day of our wedding--my husband and I snuck away from our reception to take a few night time photos on the balcony in the presidential suite and the pictures turned out so beautiful!!!
We had a Sunday brunch in May 2017 for about 70 people for our wedding reception in the Atrium and it was amazing. Delish food, beautiful floor plan and the chocolate fountain was a hit! They are very professional to work with and have nice spots for photos inside/outside with gardens. Highly recommended!
We are extremely happy with this venue! Our guests continue to rave that it was the best wedding they attended. The staff are excellent, the grounds are breathtaking, food is divine, and I can go on and on! I hear horror stories of brides extremely stressed on their wedding day. This was not the case for me and I attribute it the staff. Linda was on top of it! She pulled everything together for us. Janette V., Colleen, Jenna K. and Shante P. were all so helpful and very prompt with responses. Kathy K. helped tremendously with our ceremony as well as Cathy and Peggy. This was my dream wedding!
Refusing to permit gay weddings does not make this place 'timeless' - makes The Inn a place to boycott, a place of bigotry and intolerance. Send a message of love - do not do business here.
This looks like such a beautiful venue. I would love to have a wedding here, but recently they turned my gay friend and his fiancé away, saying they don't support gay weddings because they are Catholic. What happened to "Love thy neighbor as thyself"? I am heartbroken, but I will have to take my business elsewhere.
Linda Johnson and her staff were wonderful to work with. The bride and groom as well as the wedding planner (mom) were all from out-of-state. Linda was instrumental in keeping us well informed, organized and calm in dealing with all the planning. Everything about this venue was wonderful from the chapel, to the staff, to the rooms, to the food and the ballroom. It was such a memorable day and a very fun evening. Thank you to everyone for making the wedding and reception so wonderful!
ABSOLUTELY the best place to have your reception! Linda is amazing to work with! My guests are still talking about their food and appetizers! I felt like a princess the whole night as the coordinators made sure we had drinks the entire night! I wish I could relive this night over a thousand times it was so perfect!
We just had our wedding at the Inn at St. John's and we could not be happier! All of their staff, especially Stacy Davis (event planning) and Kathy (chapel coordinator), are an absolute pleasure to work with. They are friendly, professional, and willing to accommodate literally anything you need or want throughout the entire experience. We stayed in the Presidential Suite and used it for the rehearsal dinner and for getting ready on the morning of the wedding. We took bridal party pictures in the waterfall garden and in the hotel. We had our ceremony in the beautiful chapel and used Fr. Tom from St. Kenneth Parish in Plymouth, MI (who was absolutely hilarious, by the way). And we had our reception in the Grande Ballroom. Everything went exactly as we had hoped, and we had ISJ staff around us practically at all times to make sure that anything we needed was taken care of. The Inn at St. John's checks all the boxes for a dream wedding. The grounds and every building/room are breathtaking, the music is classy, the service is impeccable, and the food is beyond compare. I am so glad we chose to have our wedding here, I wouldn't change a thing!
We had our reception at St. John's on September 4th, 2016 in the Atrium room. It was absolutely beautiful and I was so impressed by how smoothly everything went. The food was delicious and the service was impeccable. We loved the whole evening!
The Inn at St. John's is classy, meticulous and a well-oiled machine; you certainly get what you pay for here. If you'd prefer not to worry about a single detail on your wedding day, this is the place. A wedding coordinator is included in your package who goes above and beyond to accommodate your wishes and needs and ensures that the entire process -- from planning to execution -- runs smoothly. Linda Johnson is an absolute dream to work with and became like family to us! We couldn't have asked fora more positive and magical experience. Thank you Inn at St. John's for an unforgettable night!
There are so many positive adjectives I could use to describe our experience with The Inn at St. John's. If the venue fits your budget, it's WORTH THE MONEY! Our wedding coordinator, Linda, was phenomenal. The day of the wedding went swimmingly; the attentiveness and customer service was outstanding. Our guests had a good experience and were impressed with the venue (especially the food!). Plus, the Atrium is lovely. :) Thank you to the Inn for a wonderful experience!!
Loved having our reception at the Inn of St. Johns - it was beautiful!
The Inn at St. John's helped make our wedding the best day of my life. Stacy was absolutely wonderful to work with. She was so helpful every step of the way and made the planning process so easy and enjoyable. The grande ballroom was stunning and the food was awesome. I have received so many compliments from our guests on how much they enjoyed their meal. We also had a French fry bar for our late night snack which was a huge hit! Thank you to everyone at the Inn at St. John's for making our wedding day so perfect. Best decision I made in my planning process was choosing this amazing venue.
This place is a dream. Everything about The Inn at St. John's was perfect. Linda is incredible and was always prompt in helping and answering a million questions and just making sure the best day of my life was just that. From the complementary suite that had rose petals at the end of the night to the bridal suite to the incredible chapel to the beautiful ballroom- it was literally my perfect wedding. The food was great, staff excellent. I just got married on April 2nd, 2016 and I have referred so many people there already. They truly made my dream wedding a reality. Book them and don't look back!
Perfect is a word that is hard to use, yet the reception at St. John’s for our daughter's wedding on August 26, 2016 was as close to perfection as we have ever seen. First, let me say that I cannot imagine having anyone better to handle the details for us than Linda Johnson. Her caring and attention-to-details was unmatched and we always knew that she would make available all the special touches to make the evening truly magical. When we arrived at St. John’s and found her near the hall entrance waiting for us, it gave us a feeling of calm and relaxation that we knew everything had been taken care properly. And upon entrance to the ballroom, we were overtaken by the beauty and elegance that we were experiencing. In a world where quality service is often a surprising bonus, the service provided by the staff was by far the most impeccable we have ever seen! And don’t take our word for it – literally dozens of guests voiced to us that the service was unsurpassed, and they had never seen such commitment at any other venue. With that being said, our team captain Jennifer was not only efficient and timely, she was also a complete delight. She checked on us during every dinner course to make sure we were satisfied, and it seemed every time we turned around, she was there making sure nothing had been forgotten and we were please with their efforts. Again, scores of guests have complimented the service from the bartenders to the wait staff and everything in between. We, and our guests, felt overwhelmed by the extraordinary service of Jennifer and everyone else who worked that night. Thank you almost doesn’t feel like enough, but from the bottom of our hearts, we thank you for helping to make the evening such a memorable one.
Our wedding was exceptional! The service, food, and consulting was magnificent! Chef Terrance went out of his way to create the best menu possible. The salmon and filet were so delicious and many compliments on the taste. Ella did an amazing job organizing my event and went above and beyond to make sure everything was amazing! The venue decor is upscale and classy and the service is the best!! It definitely was our dream wedding! Highly recommended!!!
I had my reception at the Inn at St. John's on June 18. Overall, I would give the Inn at St. John's 5 stars. The service is exceptional and they really think of every last detail in the days leading up to the event. The food was great and was served very quickly. The bartenders were wonderful, always knew exactly what I wanted and had drinks ready for me. They truly treat the bride, groom, and other guests of honor like royalty. Shante Parks in the hotel was wonderful, she went so far out of her way to make sure all my out of town guests were accounted for and happy. The only reason I did not rank this 5 stars is because of some issues I had with my coordinator, Stacy. Although she asked about every little detail, it didn't seem that she did a lot with that information. I informed her of allergies and dietary needs, but I don't think this information as passed along. The biggest problem we had though was with timing. I had three friends acting as day-off coordinators. We were guaranteed to be able to get into the room (I used the Judea) by 4pm, but had been informed that the previous event was ending at noon and we could be in by 2. I was also informed that tables would be set up by 2pm so we could start decorating. Well, when the friends went to set up at 2, not only were no tables set but no one was there to set up the tables. When my wedding guests came down to check on the progress and realized what was happening, the men stayed to help set up the tables. 15 of my wedding guests missed me walking down the aisle because they were setting up tables!!! When they tried telling Stacy the urgency, they were told the wedding "didn't start until 6, so we have plenty of time." It was my guests that had to inform the venue that THE RECEPTION started at 6, not the wedding. Not what I would expect after spending hours with Stacy going over a timeline down to 5 minute increments. Luckily, I didn't know about any of this until after the wedding, otherwise I would have been devastated. Everyone else involved, especially our banquet manager Megan was amazing! But this one issue is the reason I cannot give a 5-star review. The only other complaint I have is that all the leftover desserts were to be sent to my hotel room and instead I never saw them, that was also disappointing considering all the money we spent and the fact that my husband and I were STARVING, but if I had to guess, I would imagine this is another detail I told Stacy that did not get passed along. Advice: If you deal with Stacy, make sure to follow up with your banquet manager or someone else!
I may be biased, but I think my wedding was absolutely beyond perfect. We utilized the Chapel for a full Catholic ceremony, then guests flowed directly to cocktail hour and reception in the Atrium Ballroom. I knew the site and the food would be awesome, but I could not believe how perfect the staff and service were on the big day. We had dedicated assistants for both the ceremony and receptions. They didn't miss a beat! I wouldn't change a single thing about the whole experience. Also - Friday events are the way to go if you want flow between ceremony and reception, plus there are added promos vs. Saturday events. Highly recommend!!!!
Appalling Management in wake of serious incident – AVOID AT ALL COSTS I stayed at St John’s… from 16 to 17 March 2016. Work was being carried out in the Hotel it should have been in full order of functioning. Part of the entrance hall floor had been uncovered to be resurfaced. Invisible glue had been put on the floor and left unattended, unprotected without any warning sign by careless and unprofessional management. I harshly slid and fell damaging shoes, bag and clothes in the glue. At the time I did not think I was hurt but this is now in question. After attempting to tell me that the incident was entirely my fault (yes really!) the management committed to repair the damages caused. Since then they have done everything in their power not to do so, including alleging that I should be in direct contact with the builder who was working for the hotel. Even at Group level, the best response you get is silence. Clearly they are using the fact that I am now far, back in Europe. Keep in mind that any trouble at the St John’s xxxxx will leave you with no other choice but to go to Court ! An immense shame. SO.
We loved our venue! We were in the Grande Ballroom, it was absolutely beautiful. The Chapel was gorgeous as well. The wedding and chapel coordinators make sure to have everything very organized and keep you on your time line. We were out of state and recommend to get in touch it was easiest to call- some emails were not returned. The food was delicious! Every thing tasted better the day of the wedding than at the food tasting! Everything was organized, cleaned and taken care of. We did not have to worry about one thing! All of our gifts, cake topper, veil- EVERYTHING was brought to our room by one of our wedding captains so we did not have to worry about a thing! We definitely recommend St. John's as a one stop shop- we had our ceremony, reception, golf outing and stayed in the hotel. This is an excellent location for out of town brides!!
GORGEOUS CHAPEL! It's breathtaking and irresistible. My husband was dead set on having the ceremony at The Inn at St. John's and I'm very pleased that we ended up doing so. However, if you are not also having your reception there, I'd strongly recommend checking out smaller Catholic Churches in the area. You're only able to have a Saturday Noon ceremony if you are not also having a reception there. For the amount of money spent for the use of the chapel (it is not like other churches where a donation is sufficient), there isn't any flexibility regarding times, bridal suite usage, photography times, ceremony personalizations, and so forth.
ISJ was a dream come true! The staff was extremely helpful, the food was exquisite and the whole event ran smoothly. My family and guests were very impressed with the ISJ from top to bottom. They are wedding experts!
