The Grosse Pointe War Memorial is amazing! Cheryl was more than helpful anytime I had a question. If I ever had to leave a voicemail, Cheryl got back to me in a timely matter. I had my ceremony and reception at the Grosse Pointe War memorial and I couldn't have been happier with my choice. The views are amazing and all my guest complemented me for weeks about the overall quality and service at the GPWM. If you are going for an upscale, vintage theme, like myself, this venue is PERFECT! My husband and I couldn't have asked for a better wedding venue. I give the GPWM five stars.

I had always liked the idea of a lakeside wedding and the War Memorial proved to be the most beautiful setting. We worked with Cheryl and she helped keep us on track on making our day the most memorable day ever. Everyone that we worked with at the War Memorial was so very helpful. They are very organized and efficient. The food was great and the service was wonderful.

Beautiful, elegant, classy location! This was truly a dream wedding for my husband and I! We had our ceremony on the lawn and our reception in the ballroom. The food here is excellent, the views are amazing, and it lends such a romantic, classic vibe that is so perfect for all of the photography! We didn't have to take any off-site photos! Cheryl was very helpful for my husband and I, and also our families as we all had a lot of questions regarding preparations, deadlines, policies, etc. We couldn't have been happier with this venue's ceremony and reception package. We are so happy to know that we will always have our beautiful memories and photos from this venue. Wish we could do it again! We highly recommend this venue!

Our wedding at the GPWM was simply stunning. It was an elegant, classic yet fun event that was so perfect, my husband says he wants to do it again! If you qualify to get married here, don't hesitate to do it. You will not be disappointed.

We had our ceremony on the lawn overlooking the water and even though it was a bit misty, the staff wiped off the chairs and allowed us to still have the ceremony outside. Our reception was in the ballroom and it was so gorgeous, people's jaws dropped when they walked in. The service, from the bartenders to the wait staff to the chefs and cooks, was impeccable. We had a plated dinner of either filet of beef or cognac chicken for 150 people and our guests raved about the food. We also had enough room for a 13 piece band, a bar, a candy bar and a shutter booth.

Throughout the entire process, Cheryl and her staff were always available to answer questions and accomodate any request. They worked with my decorator, planner and all other vendors to make sure we had nothing to worry about on our wedding day. But what I love the most about the War Memorial is that it's unique. I didn't want to get married in a hotel or a banquet hall. The War Memorial is a magnifnificently maintained mansion that gives a wedding a storybook setting. I smile every time I look at pictures of our wedding and I wish the evening wasn't over in a flash.

Our experience at the Grosse Pointe War Memorial was simply wonderful. The entire facility is beautifully appointed and well maintained, and the atmosphere is just right for a classy event. In the case of our relatively small wedding (100 guests), the library provided a perfectly intimate setting for our ceremony, and the Alger House was an ideal venue for our evening reception. The food was delicious, and the service was excellent. Our captain and his crew were friendly, professional, and extremely helpful over the course of the evening--many of our guests commented on how impressed they were by the quality and generosity of the staff, and we couldn't have agreed more.

As soon as we expressed an interest in booking a date, we were greeted with open arms by everyone on staff, a feature of our experience which never wavered. Cheryl (our wedding coordinator) was on top of everything, and remained equal parts patient and flexible as she helped us through the planning process. From our first meeting with her to the moments before Meghan walked down the aisle, she was the consummate professional, and her support and guidance were an invaluable resource.

Needless to say, we would strongly recommend the Grosse Pointe War Memorial to anyone seeking a wedding venue in the metro Detroit area. We cannot say "thank you" enough to the amazing staff for the vital role they played in our special day.

I couldn't think of a more gorgeous location for our wedding. Growing up in Grosse Pointe, I always knew this would be a perfect place to hold a wedding reception. Its elegant Italian-style columns and architecture give it a regal look though it is not too overly ornate so it still has a "clean" look to it (especially the ballroom which is surrounded by floor to ceiling windows overlooking the lake).

The maize garden and fountain make the perfect backdrop for a cocktail hour and nothing compares to the sprawling lawn that runs right up to the lake - makes for gorgeous pictures.

Since this is not a "typical" wedding location (hotel, hall, etc.) it doesn't feel cookie cutter at all and rather you feel like you are throwing a party at a mansion from back in the day.

The service from Cheryl and Sylvia at the War Memorial was great and they did everything they could to make the day as perfect as it was. The food was also delicious and the servers fantastic! I couldn't have imagined my wedding day anywhere else!
