Congratulations on your engagement!



The Academy of the Sacred Heart is a Catholic Chapel. The only requirement is that either the bride or the groom must be Catholic. The only documentation you will need to provide is a certified copy of your baptismal certificate dated within six months of the wedding. We ask for this, as all Catholic churches do, because all of your sacraments are noted on the back of your baptismal certificate at your baptismal parish, even if you received your sacraments at different churches.

Our chapel is part of a school community. We do not have a resident priest. You are responsible for choosing and securing a priest or a deacon to marry you. If you do not have one in mind, I would be happy to refer you to one. There are several priests and deacons in our area who perform wedding ceremonies here regularly. You do not have to have a full mass for your wedding. You can choose to have only the marriage ceremony.

The rental includes a beautiful, formal parlor for the bride and her attendants and a wedding coordinator who is on-site for the rehearsal and the wedding. It also includes the grounds for picture taking. Rehearsals are included and are usually held the Thursday or Friday prior to the wedding. Read less

We had our wedding at The Academy of the Sacred Heart. We needed a large church for our very large families and it was simply beautiful too! The coordinator, Danielle, was very helpful every step of the way. It was great to have her there on the day of the wedding too! Everything was perfect.

The Chapel at the Academy of the Sacred Heart was a wonderful spot to have my wedding ceremony. I grew up in the area but no longer live there, and needed a church to host our catholic wedding. The coordinators at the Academy were extremely helpful and welcoming.

Sacred Heart was the best venue! it is a beautiful chapel and just the perfect size for a wedding of 150-250 people. The church felt full when I walked down the aisle which was great! They allowed pew lanterns, alter flowers, etc. so we were able to make it flow with the theme of the reception.

The Academy of the Sacred Heart Chapel is stunning, especially around the holidays. The Chapel manager was extremely helpful in all areas, including organizing all of the paperwork, making sure the Mass ran smoothly, responding promptly to all correspondance etc. The Chapel was also very accomodating for an out-of-stater like myself. Worth every penny.

The Academy of the Sacred Heart is a private chapel, with the beauty of a complete church - They were very accomodating and helpful with almost everything, a few hiccups on the way, but nothing major. My only complaint was not knowing the person I had been speaking with was not going to be the person I dealt with on the wedding day, but the other person was just as helpful.

Great experience. Danielle was very helpful and accessible and organized. For a Catholic Church they were extremely open to our ideas. The venue has limited availably (only Saturdays, and our first choice was taken 11 months out) but I still rated then as highly flexible because we were not able to find any other Catholic Church in Michigan (except St. Anne's on Mackinac Island) that would even let us get married there without being members. Because my husband was in the military we ended up working with about 5 different clergy to get our pre-cana finished and at this venue they were very understanding and flexible. As a huge bonus...we actually got to have the music we wanted, which not every church will allow.

We really enjoyed having our wedding in this chapel. They grounds are also beautiful for pictures. I didn't love that we had to pay so much, when any other parish church would be free. But that's the price you pay for beauty. Danielle was easy to work with and was very helpful anytime I had any questions.
