I just heard about this place and I thought it’d be a pretty cool location to have a Detroit wedding.  It’s called FLAT 151 and its located on the 6th floor of the Murphy-Telegraph Building at 151 West Congress, on the corner of Congress and Shelby.  With a panoramic view of the Detroit cityscape, it’s Detroit’s newest event space and photography studio.   It has 8,000 square feet of event space, 12-foot ceilings and can accommodate any corporate or private event – including wedding ceremonies and receptions.  If you do have your reception there, you will need to an outside caterer.  Check out the pictures.

Pricing is yet to be determined.

Pro’s: Brand new urban location.  Talk about a real Detroit wedding. 

Con’s: They do have thick pillars throughout the loft, so larger ceremonies may be difficult to accomodate.

In my opinion, a photographer is the most important vendor choice for your wedding.  You can pick a perfect place, but who cares if the food is perfectly cooked?  Ten years down the road, while you may remember if the food was good, you’ll definitely remember if you chose the right photographer.  (And, yes, I’m praying my food is perfect too!)  It’s the photographer’s job to capture every intimate moment… and the traditional one’s too.  Pictures are the things you can show your children and your grandchildren down the line.   

Let’s just say, this is one area where I wanted to splurge… but Kenny didn’t.  And he’s wonderful, don’t get me wrong, but I think this is something he won’t agree with me on until after the wedding.  But, by then, it would be too late… So, I guess you can say, I got a bit creative.   Actually – I’ll spell it out what I did.  He’s paying the price we agreed upon and I’m making up the difference.

I started scouting out photographers in mid-August.  One thing you don’t really think about is that this person will literally be in your face on your wedding day.  I don’t mean that they’ll be intrusive during your intimate moments, but they’ll be there asking you to do this or that.  Yeah – They really are part of your day, so there has to be a little bit of chemistry with you, your fiance and your photographer.  It makes sense, right? (The last thing I wanted was some squirrely photographer who made me feel weird on my wedding day!) 

So, you’ll never guess where I went to look for potential Detroit photographers?  The Knot.com… who woulda thought since I’m now obsessed with the site!  They have a ton of Detroit-area photographers to choose from.   And, I looked at every single site, through all of their sample wedding images, their pricing and services.  I started to differentiate the cookie-cutter photographers from the true artists.  The ones who I define as artists are the ones who evoke emotion – They not only capture the moment, but they capture the feeling.  (And, I was not PMSing when getting all teary-eyed over some strangers wedding pictures!)

I think it’s important to note, I was not looking for a traditional photographer.  I wanted someone modern, someone edgy and someone fun.  And, I wanted to stay away from those national-wide photographer vendors – I wanted someone who built their reputation themselves.  Here’s some photographers that matched my criteria:

 

Abbey Rose Photography – She is awesome.  Very edgy.  Very cool.  She was unavailable, but she did suggest Heather Saunders to me. 

Amanda Williams Photograghy – Her photography is stunning.  And, she has crazy-reasonable prices.  Seriously, I think I shed a tear when I found out she was booked for my wedding date.  (This is like a 13 months out!)  Check her out!  You might wanna book before you get engaged!  

Heather Saunders Photography – When I first saw her photography, I was blown away!  I had to have her as my photographer.  Initially, I didn’t look at her site on the Knot, because she had like a million dollar signs next to her name.  (Ok, maybe it was three $$$)  But, she is an artist.  And she WILL be so worth it.  Meeting with her cinched the deal.  I cut my deposit check and was on my way! 

Mike Greer Photography – My brother actually used him for his wedding photography in September of 2007.  He’s very creative and very edgy.  Very impressive, but his photographs don’t have the same emotion behind them as an Abbey or Heather. 

Sam Sarkis Photography – Ah, Sam.  The images on Sam’s website are a mix between traditional and edgy.  He actually has four other photographers who shoot wedding for him as well.  When I met with him, he showed my his work which leans on the more traditional side.  But, I did take a look at his associate Kathy’s wedding album.  Now she has some cool images. 

Wally Spice Photography – Wally is great. She and her daughter make up the Wally Spice duo.  She is very urban and captures some great Detroit city wedding images.  I was really impressed with her and she’s really easy to talk with on the phone.  Not as creative as a Heather, but still hits it outta the park.  

All the above photographers have two photographers shoot the wedding. 

Yeah, Heather Saunders is going to ROCK!  Kenny and I have our engagement session next month, so I’ll post the images when I get them back!  Stay tuned!

Tonight, I had the most incredible and intense chocolate craving.  I tried to counteract it, but I think I made it worse!  Thank God, I stashed a Godiva chocolate Santa in the kitchen cupboard. 

I can attest, the Godiva chocolate Santa tastes just as fabulous in September!  No joke, this crazy sweet tooth thing runs in the family…

Ohhh, that was good!

While the Knot.com is an awesome resource to find Detroit vendors, I didn’t get the detail that I was really looking for.  Since I spent hours researching all this stuff, I posted a comprehensive list of all the site details, including pricing and contact info on a a new page of my blog.  Check it out: Detroit Ceremony Site Guide.  If you want to add a Detroit location, post me a comment and I’ll look into it!

I called about 30 locations and visited most of them to check out the site.  I couldn’t keep all the details to myself!  I’m still waiting on specific pricing on a couple locations, but I’ll update when I get the call back!

So, in my search to find the perfect ceremony location I called just about every potential ceremony site in Detroit!  Seriously, no joke.   Whatever I liked, Kenny hated!  I must’ve dragged him to Detroit more than a dozen times! 

Here are some of the locations we’ve already checked out:

Belle Isle– I called them and I’m not sure I want to have my ceremony there. They seem so unorganized. Also, they really don’t have an indoor alternative in case it rains. The conservatory has standing room only, and to be honest, I only want the bridal party and the minister standing.

Campus Martius – I love this location. But, for one, it’s very public, they don’t know their 2009 event schedule yet, and there’s really no indoor alternative. Parking might be an issue… I’d have to have guests take the People Mover from Greektown. (That would be kinda cool – but they might not think so!) I could get a tent in case it rains… it’s been done.

Coach Insignia at the Ren Cen – Located on the 72nd floor of the Ren Cen, this would have an awesome view of the river and the city. With floor to ceiling windows, this would be IDEAL. We’ll see if they’ll allow a ceremony only… But, do you think it would be tacky if we didn’t have drinks or appetizers there for guests… it is a restaurant???

The Atrium of the Compuware Building in downtown Detroit.

Compuware HQ – Sounds strange, but I had to check it out. I love the Atrium. It has kites hanging down from skylights and there’s a cool fountain in there… But, it’s so public. Hard Rock cafe has a little patio out there and anyone could walk in. Also, it’s kind of loud in there because of the fountain…

Detroit Historical Museum – Inside would be really cool, but I haven’t seen it yet, ‘CAUSE they didn’t CALL back yet. And, the outside of the building isn’t very attractive… More to come…

Detroit River Walk – Really? How would this even work. I haven’t really explored it, but it’s such a public venue…

Detroit Zoo – Yeah, this one’s not even in Detroit, but it would make for a unique location. They don’t allow ceremonies until 6p.m., which is kinda late. Kenny really likes this location if we could get an earlier ceremony time. I would prefer something in Detroit and closer to Greektown.

DIA – This was my DREAM location. This is my CHURCH. I would love to have the ceremony at Detroit Industry mural exhibit by Diego Rivera exhibit with the (wouldn’t that be AWESOME), but for some strange reason, they don’t hold ceremonies there, I think only receptions…. Big, big, BUMMER.

The First Congretational Church of Detroit in Midtown Detroit.

First Congregational Church of Detroit – The church is two blocks away from WSU Welcome Center. The church itself is beautiful, but right across the street is an ugly blue building with a large gravel parking lot and next store is a Churches Chicken – which Kenny does NOT like. Inside the church is beautiful. It’s not too ornate… I think it’s perfect. But Kenny’s not thrilled with it. What I love is that it’s more than a 100 years old and was part of the Underground Railroad! How cool, right? Oh, another cool thing is you can bring in your own minister…

The Edsel and Eleanor Ford House – How beautiful would this be? While it’s not in Detroit, it’s right down the street and has history. But get this, they don’t do wedding ceremonies. They do all types of showers and other events, but not weddings. Strange. Big disappointment.

Gem Theatre – I thought this location would be cool. But they only do wedding ceremonies in conjunction with the reception. Too bad, right?

Greektown Hotel and Casino – Hey, why not have it here? There’s a couple different options I can puruse with this venue… and it’s definitely a possibility. What I really wanted was to have it on the 14th floor balcony of the hotel (they have an outdoor balcony overlooking the Detroit River and the city) but I think the city won’t allow them to have events out there. Who knows, maybe the wind or something…) Once the hotel is competed in Oct. 2008, we’ll be able to take a better look. (Do you think we’ll go to hell if we have our ceremony at the casino?)

Martha Mary Chapel at Greenfield Village in Dearborn, Mich.

Greenfield Village – Not in Detroit, but nonetheless, a cool location. The only place they allow a ceremony here (all other locations you have to have the reception there) is the Mary Martha Chapel. So quaint! But, already booked… GRRRRR.

Guardian Building – The lobby is beautiful – it’s tiled with Pewabic tile in bright colors. Still haven’t received a call back from them. More to come…

Max M. Fisher Building – The lobby is cool – it’s open and has a lot of windows… Still haven’t heard back from them yet either. Sheesh!

McGregor Memorial and Conference Center – This is located on Wayne State University Campus. It’s kind of cool looking from the outside, but even cooler on the inside. The lobby has all glass windows. Kenny doesn’t really like it… And, people would have to walk a ways… not cool for the older folks.

Ren Cen Winter Garden – This is truly a beautiful location, but it’s open to the public. This would be a great place, if only I could keep the general public out for an hour tops! I have to call Hines Management! More to come…

The Whitney Mansion on Woodward Avenue in Detroit

The Whitney – The Whitney Mansion on Woodward is a gorgeous place and it’s right down the street to Greektown…But, the entrance is hard to find since condo’s are blocking it. The surroundings aren’t as pretty as we’d like – though it’s right by WSU, and parking is limited… I do have to say, the people there are great to work with…

Check out our dj – Anne Carlini!  Never thought I would have a female dj – actually – always assumed my dj would be male!  Hold on – Never really thought about it before! 

Honestly, I didn’t go dj shopping.  I didn’t peruse the Knot.com to check out local dj houses.  All I did was call Mike Staff Productions in Troy, Mich., and they had us from Hello.  Yeah, they’re a little bit more expensive than other local djs but it’s because they have it down to a science.

Let me back up…There were a couple things I wanted to have nailed down right away – the ceremony and reception locations, the photographer and the DJ.  The one thing we wanted to avoid with the dj was… we wanted to avoid hiring a tool. We’ve both been to too many weddings where the dj came across as over-the-top, fake, ingenuine or just plain corny.   In my search for for a Detroit ceremony location site, I came across this message board that talked up Uncle Buck who’s a Detroit radio dj and who also works with Mike Staff Productions.  

So, I called over there and set up an appointment.  First of all, when I called, they were awesome to deal with and asked what kind of dj I was looking for – A behind-the-scenes kinda dj or a crowd booster?  I told them we wanted someone who could read the crowd and get people out on the dance floor.  We’re NOT going to dictate each and every song the dj’ll play and in what order!  Can you believe some people do that!  That’s just ridiculous.  Hello, Bridezilla!  Good-Bye FUN!   They did say, Uncle Buck was available for our date, but they would show us several dj’s so we’re absolutely positive about our pick. 

Anyway, when you get there, they sit you down on this plush oversized couch and in front of this huge flat screen tv and go through the djs with you. Basically, each dj has a video showcasing their personality, style and what they like about their jobs.  They have about 30 djs to choose from, depending on what kind of atmosphere you want to have.  Based on our criteria, they showed us five djs: Uncle Buck, Mike Dembs, Dave L, Andew Neer and Anne Carlini. 

I’m telling you, we were really leaning towards either Buck or Andrew… Then Anne Carlini came on.  I thought Kenny was going to have a heart palpatation.  He was enamored with her!  She’s a dj on the WRIF and he listens to her all the time. (Yeah, didn’t know about that l’il crush!)  She was so genuine sounding and fun.  No fake, talk show announcer voice – She came across as someone who was genuinely happy for you on your day.  She wowed us!   Oh, man, Kenny is happy with this pick!  (And he wanted to shop around for other djs… What Ev!) Anne is a $200 more than the other dj’s because she’s the only one who works with an assistant – but we think she’ll be so worth it! 

The DJ: Anne Carlini of Mike Staff Productions

Mike Staff Productions Details 

  • 6 hours of entertainment – that’s all I need
  • Coordination of events
  • Back-up equipment
  • Back up emergency dj on call – they really pay people to stay home and be on call for the night…
  • Money back guarentee

Nailin’ down a date is pretty easy when you’re planning a year in advance.  A year’s a good amount of time when you’re paying for most of it on your own.  Don’t get me wrong, our parent’s are both contributing a generous sum.  But, we’re not about to break their bank for a wedding.  And, these days, with food and energy prices rising, everything is so expensive.  From what I hear, it’s not what it used to be.  That’s all right, we’ll still put on a nice l’il soire.

Know What’s Goin on Locally
Last year my lil bro got married on Sept. 1, in downtown Pontiac, Mich.  Needless to say, it just happened to be the same weekend as Arts, Beats and Eats, which is an annual festival that draws in thousands of people each year.  And, to my sister-in-law’s dismay, the festival just happened to draw in all the local porta johns.  You know the ones!  All lined-up in a row.  There was even a single porta john on the corner right next to the church.  It was odd.  Not only was this a visually disturbing sight, but it also made for a logistical nightmare.  Yep, this was a big LESSON LEARNED!  Know what’s going on locally, before you decide on a date.  Annual festivals and any other events that draw in the crowds and the porta johns need to be avoided at all costs.  Serioulsy, just check your local vendor listings to see what’s goin’ on! 

Seriously, When?
I’ve always wanted to have a Fall wedding.  It’s always been my favorite time of year with the color change, the cooler temperatures and the general feeling in the air.  I love it!  There’s no way in hell I could marry in the Springtime.  Spring = Tornado season.  I would show up to my own wedding with a football helmet on.   “Hell No!”  (That’s a quote from Sophia from the broadway musical The Color Purple.”)  Winter’s too cold and summer’s too hot.  A hot, sweaty bride does NOT sound appealing to me.  And, the fiance likes it too. So, Fall it is!  

My beau and his deer trophy.  That thing yielded so much meat - UCK.

My beau and his deer trophy. That thing yielded so much meat - UCK.

The only problem with Fall is… Hunting Season.  And my beau is quite the l’il hunter, which gives me a narrow window of opportunity to nail down a date in timeframe that he won’t grumble is interferring with his manhood!  I really liked Saturday, Oct. 3, until I remembered that Oct. 1, is the opening day of bow season in Michigan.  I might get ’em for Oct. 3 of 2009, but after that I’d end up being a Hunter’s Widow on every anniversary till Death Do Us Part!  And he said something about his friends probably won’t show up at the wedding, cause they’ll be hunting.

Needless to say, we decided on a date in mid-September.  And, we steered clear of Arts, Beats and Eats, other Labor Day festivals in downtown Detroit and avoided hunting season!   

 

As the old saying goes - Where there is a roostertail, so must there be a cock.

As the old saying goes - Where there is a roostertail, so must there be a cock.

Holy Prom Night!  That’s what comes to mind when I think of our experience at the Rooster Tail.  Well, a stark white, Miami Vice suit comes to mind too.  

This past August, when I was perusing the Knot.com for potential wedding reception/ceremony locations, I came across the Rooster Tail.  The pictures are awesome.  I could not wait to get someone on the phone and book my date.  When I spoke to “Tom” on the phone, he was absolutely fabulous!  He talked about wedding packages and how linens were included and on and on.  He told me to come on Thursday of that week, but not to come in before 8 p.m.  Then, he lowered his voice and told me he shouldn’t tell me this, but that TNT was filming a reality tv show.  Tom said to come in, grab a drink, if I wanted to be an extra I could (that was a NO. But, I did accept the drink offer…) and that we could tour the place and talk about details. 

I was really excited.  It was between Greektown and Rooster Tail and the latter would be a little more pricey, but we could swing it.  I told Kenny about it, showed him the pictures and he was in.  Since I had a work-related meeting in the “D” that night, he would just meet me there at 8 p.m.  

Driving up to the Rooster Tail, I was a little surprised that leading up to this gorgeous facility was this very narrow, one way street with some very interesting looking houses.  (Basically, the Detroit nay-sayers – yeah, I have some of those in the fam – would want a police escort to the facility).  Kenny and I pulled up and I could tell he’s not so impressed with the drive in, but once he caught site of the building and the river, I could see that he was still interested.  

When we walked in, I thought (we’ll call her Anne, cause I don’t wanna use her real name) Anne would meet us at the door, like Tom had mentioned.  When we walked in, the place was pure chaos with people wearing headsets and holding clip boards were bustling around the place.  There was a makeshift bar right at the front door and a table with a picked-through food spread in the hallway.  We told one of the tv crew people we had an appointment to talk about a wedding,… people looked confused and we looked and felt uncomfortable.  In any other situation, I would’ve bolted.  I don’t need that.  But I wanted to see the place… A couple minutes later, out emerges a disheveled looking Anne.  She said that she had NO IDEA that Tom had booked any appointments, but that she would be more than happy to show us around. 

She offered us a drink, and of course, we obliged!  She then proceeded to pour me a half a bottle of wine – seriously, no joke – and Kenny the largest screwdriver I’d ever seen.  Then she poured herself a generous cocktail.  Once we all had our drinks in hand, Anne was going to take us out to the patio to take a look at their ceremony location site.  As we’re walking through the room, some TV chick stopped Anne and told her we couldn’t be in there.  Anne was seriously pissed.  When we turned around, toward the front door to go up stairs and look at the one of the ballrooms, in comes another couple.  Apparently, they had talked to Tom and he gave them the same story.  And, poor Anne had not a clue!  Now I’m thinking, what the hell are these people doing?  Are you for real?

Anne pours another couple drinks for our new couple and takes us all upstairs to show us the room and to talk about wedding package options.  And, YES, this was an awkward situation.  The first question I asked the other bride-to-be was when she was planning on having her wedding.  The last thing I wanted to hear was that we were looking to book on the same date!    She was looking for an August date.  Phew!

Anyway, we’re all around this table looking at albums and talking wedding shop.  All the other bride girl could say was that she wanted a Starry Night wedding and that she had to have a Starry Night wedding.  As she was saying this, she was bouncing up and down on her chair.  I thought Kenny was going to kill her.  But Anne, was cool with that stiff drink she had, and she told Starry Night girl that the Starry Night theme was more of a Prom thing.  It could happen, but that was their specialty for proms… It was the most hilarous exchange we’d ever seen.  “Starry Night, Starry Night.” Bounce, Bounce. OMG!  Thank  God for the wine!  I wanted to toss this chick into the river! 

Oh, and, Anne dropped the bomb that in order book, the minimum you had to spend was $18K.  That’s the STANDARD package with no upgrades!  WTF!  Kenny almost fell off his chair!    

Yes, it was a suit like this!  And, I'm pretty sure an identical shirt...

Yes, it was a suit like this! And, I'm pretty sure he had an idential shirt... And forget the badge, he was holding a cocktail.

Anyway, after the film crew finished taping, we were allowed to tour the main floor.  This is where we had a nice convo with Tom the owner – who just happened to be decked out in a white Miami Vice suit and a cocktail.  He started talking about how business was booming, despite the fact that Michigan was in a serious economic slump.  He said that he could still charge top dollar because most of the weddings at the Rooster Tail were destination weddings.  People would come from the East or West coast to have a Detroit wedding because they could get more for their dollar here.  And he said, the people who booked at the Rooster Tail were sports celebrities, etc.  Ok, Tom, I believe that one,… but, you were talkin’ to two Detroiters here on a budget.  Maybe it was the alcohol talking — or maybe it was just a sense of entitlement… I did like Anne though…

The end result: Kenny’s feathers were ruffled and he was not at all interested in the Rooster Tail.  And, I didn’t blame him.

Kenny and I decided we’re getting married in the “D.”  Why go anywhere when you have Detroit, right? 

Ok, honestly- Detroit wasn’t top of mind when we decided to have the wedding somewhere around here, in Metro Detroit.  I looked into a ton of places… Clarkston, Commerce, Birmingham, Troy, and the list goes on. Either I was overwhelmed by the price or underwhelmed by the banquet hall or location.  Or, all of our friends had already had their wedding there.  I wanted something new… something fresh.  And, I needed some place with WINDOWS.  I’ve been trapped in too many window-less conference rooms for work-related events.  Just can’t do it on my wedding day! 

Big Rock Chop House in Birmingham, Mich.  This place has the best food and service!

Big Rock Chop House in Birmingham, Mich. This place has the best food and service!

Some of the places we looked at were Big Rock Chop House in Birmingham, Mich.  They have a really beautiful banquet hall, called The Reserve.  The owner Norm LePaige went to Ecuador and bought silver place settings and silverware.  Simply gorgeous!  And, the Reserve has custom lighting to accent the theme of your wedding.  It’s really a top-notch place.  Vera Day-Rizer is wonderful to work with!  (Oh yeah – I put myself through college working at Big Rock… and here’s another little tidbit, my ex and I worked there together for almost four years.  Not someplace I think I want to get married.)  So, scratch The Reserve.  Also, it’s a little pricey, but if you can afford it, it’s a great place to say “I Do” and have a snazzy reception.  

Some other Metro Detroit Wedding Ceremony/Reception locations I looked at were:

The Pine Knob Mansion – Clarkston, Mich. – They offer both an indoor and outdoor venue (with windows).  Very beautiful!  They have a couple different locations for both the ceremony and reception.  I think this place would be perfect!  But, there was no where to go afterwards for an afterglow party.  I want my wedding to be a party.  It’s the first party Kenny and I are hosting as husband and wife and I want it to be a BLAST. 

Meadow Brook – Rochester Hills, Mich. – This place has history.  It’s beautiful, elegant and EXPENSIVE!  Since, Kenny and I paying for our wedding ourself, we have to be a little modest with reception prices.  But, if you can swing it, they offer both indoor and outdoor ceremony and reception locations.  Also, it doesn’t have the atmosphere Kenny and I want.  We would rather have laid-back elegance, with a hint of debauchery.  (Yeah, we like to gamble and have a good time!) 

Wabeek Country Club's outdoor patio.  Makes for a great evening wedding.

Wabeek Country Club - This is the outdoor patio - At night it's gorgeous.

Wabeek Country Club – Bloomfield Hill, Mich. – This place is awesome!  But, our friends had their reception here a couple years ago.  They had an outdoor cocktail and passed appetizer hour.  It was impressive.  The wedding was well done.  Great flow to the evening.  The hall has windows overlooking the golf course and had an outdoor patio. 

The Rooster Tail – Detroit, Mich. – Ok, I was so excited to see this place.  It’s located right on the Detroit River, with Canada across the way, it’s a striking location.  They have floor-to-ceiling windows, a couple different outdoor ceremony locations and a beautiful fountain show.  They also have the custom lighting – but they offer a variety of table linens, as well.  I felt really good about checking this place out.  And, while I knew it would be a little pricey, I was convinced Kenny would LOVE it.  

Tom, Owner of the Roostertail.

Tom, Owner of the Roostertail.

But, let me tell you, our visit was a debacle!  And, Tom, the owner,  happened to ruffle my fiance’s tail feathers.  Way to go, Tom!  (Look for my Starry Night Debacle post later to read about the Rooster Tail incident!)  

I was starting to think that I needed to hire someone to scout locations for me, when my mom called me up and told me she had talked with someone over at Greektown Casino.  The new hotel is scheduled to open January 2009 and they were already booking events.  One of the first dates Kenny took me on, was to Greektown.  We had flaming cheese, lamb and then hit the casino.  It also happens to be the location of our first kiss!

After talking with my mom, I just knew Greektown was the ideal place for us to have our wedding reception!  How fun would that be?  The only question is: Do they have windows?
