We had our wedding in 42 Degrees North which offers 180 degree views of the Detroit River and Windsor skyline. It was absolutely beautiful from beginning to end, which made the less than awesome service worth it. Throughout our nine months working with this venue our event planner was changed three times which made planning with the venue very difficult. Our first two coordinators did a less than great job but luckily our third event coordinator actually cared and was good at her job. They do not go over the planning process in the beginning so a lot of it was a guessing game for us and many times we felt like an inconvenience to the event managers. When our wedding day came they served completely wrong appetizers, which was so disappointing because our original choices were delicious and the ones they served were not so great. We had also paid an extra $600 toward our wedding cake so we had an extra layer of cake to take home to our elderly family to feel included in our wedding that was mysteriously lost/stolen/eaten/who knows. There were also full bottles of wine which were used as our seating cards that went missing. With all that being said, we have pictures that are worth a million dollars because of this venue and our wedding was beautiful! The food (aside from the appetizers) was phenomenal, we are still getting compliments on how great the filet and salmon dishes were. I would recommend this venue, just use caution and make sure you spell everything out that you want and have some sort of written communication to prove it. The views and food are worth your trouble!! Read less

They did a fabulous job, especially the event coordinator who helped track down our band when they were late setting up.

Overall, the place was amazing. The view was gorgeous and I don't think we could have asked for a better location. Simply beautiful! The negatives are that I really didn't get what I paid for. The wedding coordinator was so distracted by everything else, she had no time for us. I would ask her questions and get vague answers. On the day of the wedding, she was no where to be found. Come to find out, she was showing another couple my reception room in hopes to get another sale. The room wasn't set up in time because the staff didn't know what was going on. My centerpieces were completely wrong (and I paid a lot of money for them). Everyone saw me before the wedding because I could not find the wedding coordinator to show me where to go. Overall, I had a great time at my wedding, but I wouldn't recommend them. Read less
