When we first thought of having our wedding here, we thought there was no way we could afford it. Compared to other venues that would fit our size wedding (180 people), it was actually much more affordable than the area country clubs and wedding venues we looked at. They have great packages for off-peak days/seasons, and tons of options to make it customizable.

The thing that most impressed me was the staff. I was well aware that we were a much lower budget couple than most people they work with. They NEVER tried to push me to spend more. They gave us all the options, and then respected our decision. There was no pushing to upsell. But, if you are a high budget couple, there are some amazing things you could do. The best example of this was when we gave our final counts. We were just under the food and beverage minimum, so I suggested we upgrade the bar. Aileen told us exactly how much that would be, then gave us some other options that would help us meet the minimum without going over. It actually ended up being a better fit! I was so impressed with this attention to giving us the wedding we want without trying to make us go broke.

Plus, it goes without saying that the food is excellent, and they really take care of you on the day of. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

We had our wedding at Martha-Mary Chapel and the reception at Eagle Tavern. It was rustic enough for everyone to feel comfortable and exquisite enough to make it feel like a truly classy affair. If you are going for the "feel" of a barn without the cliche-ness of a barn, this is the right venue for you.

The food was amazing and the staff was very responsive. Truly, it was a perfect wedding day and I'd recommend the place to anyone.

The Henry Ford in general is a bit pricey, but the Eagle Tavern is much more reasonable. There are many ways to adjust the price of your event, and this is something else that I loved about the place.

When we walked into the Henry Ford, we knew this was the place for us and our wedding guests! We loved our planning experience at the Henry Ford. We ended up going out of their wedding package, and found that it was more suitable to our palettes. Our planner even helped us pick out the perfect linen, chair, and uplighting combination to set the tone of the reception! The finished product was breathtaking. The day of the wedding we had arranged for horse drawn carriages to take us out to the Village. It was so cool! Our guests are still talking about how we rode up in the carriages and how this was one of the best weddings they have EVER been too. The food was great, our guests had a fabulous time walking around the museum after dinner, and we can't wait until we have our photos /video back to relive the whole day again!

When we first went to see Lovett Hall as a possible reception location, we knew it was the place for us right away. Lovett Hall is a beautiful building, and we had a great experience working with the staff. Our coordinator, Jennifer, was so easy to work with and kept us up to date with everything we needed to know. Our banquet manager the night of the reception also did a wonderful job helping us out with anything we needed. Guests complimented the ambience, the food, and the service. You won't be disappointed with choosing Lovett Hall!

SIMPLY AMAZING!!! I knew it would be a fairytale from the moment I looked at the venue. The Henry Ford was unbelievable. I worked with Jennifer during all of our planning process and she made the entire experience wonderful. She answered all of my questions (sometimes multiple times because I forgot the answer) and was quick. From the food tasting to making sure everything was delivered the week of the wedding, everything was flawless. I saw her the day of the rehearsal and the wedding day which made me feel so comfortable. Our guests LOVED the idea of being in the museum. Many were shocked when they found out they could walk around the entire museum for the night. The food was amazing, the staff was so helpful and nice. I could go on and on. We had an amazing wedding at an amazing location and we could not have been happier.

We had both our ceremony and reception in Lovett Hall. The Henry Ford was great to work with. They definitely are pricey, but they are worth every penny. We actually saved close to $10,000 by having the wedding on a Friday - we weren't super excited about a Friday wedding, but we couldn't turn down that price! Our original planner was Carrie, but wound up being switched to Donna. Donna was great - she seemed willing to bend over backwards to accomodate anything we needed. The staff was also great, and everyone raved about the food. And the hall is absolutely gorgeous! Our guests are still talking about the Faygo Float Station that we had - I had no idea that red pop could make such a tasty float. As someone wrote anonymously in our guestbook, Lovett Hall rocks!

We got married at Lovett hall part of the Henry ford museum. It's the most beautiful hall and diamond in the ruff! My wedding was beautiful and the food was awesome! It's pricey but worth it. A first communication was tough but toward the end it got much better and they even made special arrangements for us. They ended up being super flexible with us! We did have to rent our own linens, chair etc so that can add up so be sure to ask up front what is and is not included as well as strict rules they have. They are great to work with though :) would get married here again. Our guests raved about how gorgeous and dream like our venue was :)

I am convinced that the Henry Ford Museum is the most unique venue to host a wedding reception in Southeast Michigan. Our reception was absolutely incredible, and left every guest in awe! We could not believe how many people told us that our wedding was the flat-out best they had ever attended. The food was unbelievable, and the Henry Ford staff balanced sophistication with downright fun and flair to make our reception just the best time ever. The staff worked with us to get every last detail right, and were attentive and caring in the process. We first looked at the Henry Ford complex because we were interested in Lovett Hall, and when they told us we could have a wedding actually IN the museum, we initally shrugged it off. After seeing just how cool the set-up would be, though, especially since we had a ton of out-of-town guests we wanted to 'showcase' Detroit to, we were quickly sold on the Museum. We couldn't have been happier with the experience. If you have the budget, book the Henry Ford Museum. I can practically guarantee you will be just as in awe with your own wedding day as your guests are!

We had a wonderful experience in planning and celebrating our wedding at the Henry Ford. The space was gorgeous, the event planner was responsive, and everyone had a wonderful time. The only drawbacks are that they had strict rules forbidding us from bringing in outside food or drinks, we couldn't even discuss details for the work order until six months before the wedding, and the tasting was limited to just a couple main course options.

We had our ceremony and reception at Lovett Hall at the Henry Ford. As soon as we saw Lovett hall we fell in love with it. It is so beautiful, elegant and perfect! The staff was very professional and accomodating. They made our wedding run smooth and timely. The staff, food, venue and decor was wonderful...we couldn't have asked for everything to be more perfect!

We highly recommend Lovett Hall!

I had my wedding recently inside Greenfield village at Martha-Mary chapel and Eagle Tavern. It was so beautiful and amazing for pictures. My wedding coordinator and banquet manager were amazing. Everything at the facility went perfectly. They made sure everything on my wedding day ran seamlessly.

We had the most beautiful wedding! The staff was really great about meeting with us to hash out the details. Everyone was very nice. The only thing about picking a historic site for you wedding is that there are restrictions on things such as blowing bubbles, or handing up twinkle lights or anything that might degrade the integrity of a historic building.

The Henry Ford Museum was absolutely amazing! The food is unbelievable and the service is top notch. We had many out of town guests come and they could not believe a wedding could be held in such a unique location. 3 months later and our guests are still raving about everything!

We had an absolutely beautiful wedding at Lovett Hall. We chose this venue for the historical significance and overall feel, as it really fit with our vision. Ultimately, everything came together and our guests were happy with the food, drinks, service, etc. However, during the planning, we found that the venue was incredibly inflexible when it came to customizing the menu or changing things - it's really the type of venue that is best for someone who does not care about details and is fine to accept the package the way that it is. If you want to change anything or negotiate it is very difficult and if they allow you to make changes they will likely charge a lot of money. It ultimately costed a lot more than we anticipated originally, but the venue is absolutely gorgeous and we could not have had a more beautiful wedding. If your budget is open ended and you are ok with the basic packages offered, go for it!

We fell in love with Lovett Hall upon the first time looking at pictures online. When we took our first tour, we knew this was where we'd be married. Aside from being beautiful it its own grandeur, the hall has limitless opportunities to personalize your event. Both our planner and food/beverage manager were extremely helpful along the way and helped make our wedding turn out as wonderfully as it did. Lovett is not the place for the budget-conscious bride to get married though, food and beverage costs are very high as are their restrictions on bringing in outside favors/food.

Lovett Hall was the perfect place for our wedding. I love the chandeliers and the ballroom of Lovett Hall. The wood floors are great, no carpet !! The food was great and taking pictures instead of the musuem added a special touch, although we had to make arrangements to take pictures within the bldg before they closed - so there were people walking around the bldg - but we got the shots !!

We were disappointed with the Henry Ford Museum. We loved the space & private access to the entire museum for the night. Our greatest frustration was from our event coordinator who responded with indirect answers leaving us unsure & confused. We would have appreciated a more honest relationship from her. Issues: Price quotes-when requested she would answer what the price will probably-most likely-pretty sure-be, take time to contact vendors, then respond w/ a different price, i.e the chairs: The materials quoted chairs at one price, she verbally quoted a different price, 10 days before the wedding we got a third, much higher price. No apologies. We felt we didn't receive great service from her bc our budget wasn't high enough. Neglectful/disinterested service the day of. Waitstaff & bartenders were great. Our day-of coordinator was awful. My MOH had to find her after we were outside for an hour, she never introduced herself to me or my husband, and once inside she disappeared. We finally asked a bartender where to go for bridal party into & never saw her again. Food- don't expect a full tasting (only 2 entrees). I get their reason but would have appreciated upfront honesty. Food was great at the tasting, but our beef was overcooked & dry the night of our wedding. Lack of transparency with charges- final invoice was difficult to understand. No-show guests were charged for their bar package, our coordinator responded that we would not receive a refund, no explanation. The mgr admitted that we should be refunded the bar charges, was sympathetic of our bad experiences & told us she would call us back in a few days- months ago. Never heard from her again. I loved that the museum brought a piece of my childhood to my wedding now that I live out of state. Nothing else was exceptional.

The Henry Ford/Lovett Hall is a beautiful venue. Everything about the building says romance. We are just now receiving pictures of the wedding and the background of Lovett Hall is stunning. We were very pleased with the venue.
Where I was not happy is with the staff. They are courteous but very hard to work with. Do not use this venue if you want to negotiate any type of pricing. THEY WILL NOT NEGOTIATE! I spent 35000.00 and they refused to give me a 182.00 break on glass wear. That simply is not good business.
I purchased a super premium bar and they had no scotch at the bar. They told my guest he could have it after the reception bar opened. That is not acceptable because I payed for it. They also didn't have the reception bar open when I requested so people entering the receipt open hall came in to closed bar. I didn't request that on my contract.
I had to baby sit them for the first hour. I was not happy.
We have not received any follow up call from the staff. My advice to anyone wanting this venue is to get every dollar amount you will be paying before you sign the contract.

The Henry Ford responded with the following comments:

I am so sorry to hear how unhappy you are with your son's reception! Please give us a call, I would love to talk to you about your experience and clear up any miscommunication. The bride and groom did not express to us your negative feelings, so I am sorry this hasn't been addressed! As a museum and non-profit, we do not have any flexibility in our accounting practices (it would effect our tax-exemption status,) but we try to find the best deals for rental items and pass that cost along to our clients. In the planning the bride and groom decided to close the bar for a short time while wine was served with dinner, we believe it is a great way to use the bar time and is a nice touch to serve the guests while they are having dinner--I am sorry to hear that some of your guests didn't feel that was hospitable. We really appreciate all feedback so that we can help advise future brides, grooms, and their families. Again, I am sorry you weren't happy with your son's wedding and please let me know if there is anything I can do!
