We hosted our wedding reception at the DYC in May 2015. All was truly a dream come true... thanks to the beautiful, historic venue, excellent service, delicious food, and strong drinks! The DYC offered a unique reception option in Downtown Detroit without the worry of weather ruining our waterfront wedding dreams. Our 200 guests enjoyed cocktail hour on the covered, open-air veranda... so much so that the DYC staff had to work extra hard to rally them into the ballroom for dinner. Guests walked the docks, checked out the large yachts, and enjoyed views of the city skyline while smoking cigars on the patio. Dinner was delicious... and we are still getting comments on it! We served grilled chicken with a parmesan bacon cream sauce, garlic/lemon whitefish, and a mushroom stack (vegetarian/gluten free). I was surprised when my plate had 2 full chicken breasts on it! As many learned, the gregarious bartenders were not stingy with drinks either -- which was much appreciated by my guests who danced the night away. The DYC was also very flexible... allowing us to bring in cookies for dessert and our own appetizers (Cape Cod potato chips from where we got engaged). With regard to pricing, we found the DYC to be an excellent value!! They allowed us to remove/add things to packages as to best serve our needs/budget. Although the large ballroom is not air conditioned, the temp was perfect. It was a mid-70 degree May day. The large doors on the riverside were open through dinner/dancing. The venue required very little decorations - further keeping costs down. Lastly, Crystal, the banquet director we worked with, was truly a dear! She is professional with a calming demeanor! I highly recommend the DYC! and Belle Isle itself is also quite beautiful/cleaned up with the State of Michigan taking over now.

We had our ceremony and reception at DYC and there is absolutely no way possible that it could have been anymore beautiful. Emily was AMAZING from the very beginning right up till the very end. She certainly doesn't do her job just for a paycheck, She's a natural. We love you Emily!! We also miss you!! The DYC staff is so well trained and all so genuine. Everything was perfect from the food to the room to the workers. This is the ABSOLUTE best place in Detroit to have your wedding. They made my husband and I feel like family. Belle Isle is amazing this time of year. Our guests are still talking about how perfect everything was and how comfortable they all felt there. Thank You! Thank You!! Thank You!! We will be back to stay for our anniversary for many more years to come!

This venue is GORGEOUS! And the food is wonderful. However... If you are planning a wedding, GOOD LUCK with the staff!! Crystal is absolutely HORRIBLE to deal with! You will never get a response by phone of email. I had to leave multiple voicemails and multiple emails within a 2 week period before ever getting a hold of her. She didn't show up to our rehearsal and was annoyed by us requesting her presence. She is unprofessional and down right RUDE! She left multiple details of our wedding out until the very last minute. VERY nerve wracking for a bride.... Booking with this venue will add MUCH unneeded stress! But, it is beautiful! :)

My groom and I used the Detroit Yacht Club for our reception. Everything was beautiful and the managers there were very helpful. One thing to look out for is that the waiters were a little quick to clear the tables. Other than that, we had a ball and you can't beat that beautiful view! Also, the prices are very reasonable. We are talking about having my parents' 50th wedding anniversary there in two years.

The DYC is a beautiful place for a wedding. Emily B. is one of the wedding coordinators there, and she is amazing! Everyone was helpful, patient, and professional. Do not let the look of some parts of Belle Isle scare you. The DYC is a gem. Getting married in front of the grand fireplace made for great pictures.

Helpful tip-bring signs for your guests that direct them to the DYC. There are two ways to get there, and it can kind of be confusing to guests who have never been on the island.

The DYC was our dream venue, and in order to make that happen, we decided to DIY a LOT of other elements. Luckily, the staff was fantastic to work with through the process and all of my constant questions. Emily was incredibly helpful. All of my emails were answered fully and in a timely manner. They were also very accommodating for pre-wedding meetings on site.

The ambiance can't be matched. We had our ceremony outdoors and chose the ballroom for our reception, and were so happy. The veranda was incredibly charming for cocktail hour.

The food was very good, especially the short rib (other guests claimed it was all amazing, and may have had access to better potatoes in a later batch!)

The night went smoothly, thanks to the great staff. They handled delays, guests, and other issues with stride.

I can't imagine having our wedding anywhere else.

The DYC was amazing - it had everything that my husband and I were looking for when we were shopping around for a reception venue - this included a balcony and Oberon on tap :) We were in the grand ballroom and it is just beautiful. Our guests were in awe and loved the atmosphere during our reception. Alix was amazing. She answered numerous questions, promptly responded to emails (even on her day off), and overall was a pleasure to work with.

The Detroit Yacht Club is an amazing and beautiful location for a reception. All the planning up until the wedding was a breeze! Carly is an amazing person to work with at the Detroit Yacht Club and responds very quickly with any questions you may have (I asked question mainly through e-mail). The cost at the Detroit Yacht Club is pricey, but we were married on a Friday so the price included everything per person (meaning tax and gratuity). We had a smaller wedding of 120 people and were in the ballroom. We were worried that the room may seem empty because it was a large room, but the yacht club set up the room perfectly! The bar service was amazing, the food was to die for, and it is a very friendly atmosphere for a private club. I would HIGHLY recommend the DYC!!!!!!
