We recently held our wedding at the Masonic Temple and it was perfect!

We wanted to find a venue where we could host both our ceremony and reception and the Masonic offered a variety of options. We ended up getting married in the Chapel and hosting our reception in the Crystal Ballroom -- both spaces were beautiful.

Melanie helped us coordinate the event and she was outstanding. Throughout our two year engagement, I contacted her many times asking question after question and not only was she quick to respond but also was always helpful and willing to accommodate our requests. Before and during the event, her staff was prepared and easy to work with. The catering company (T&M) used by the Masonic did a fantastic job and the food was delicious -- our guests are still raving about the Chicken Picante!

My husband and I researched many, many venues, and I am so happy that we decided to host our wedding at the Masonic. If you’re looking for an affordable place to get married in the Detroit area, I highly recommend this venue.

This venue used to be run down but after some recent (2016) renovations it is a hidden gem. If you are seeking a glamorous breathtaking venue this is it. Prices are still reasonable, the staff is very accommodating and guests told it they thought the Colony Club was THE Detroit venue but not anymore. Nothing compares to the beauty of the Masonic. There is a hidden chapel in the building and we had both the ceremony and reception there.

Melanie and The Masonic made for an amazing wedding. We had our ceremony in the chapel which was beautiful and a great venue. All the locations for getting dressed were great and the photo opportunities were amazing. From the main theater to the pool to the roof, the Masonic allowed for a great environment. The reception held down in the Crystal Ballroom was phenomenal, everything was beautiful. Melanie was very accommodating to our requests and making everything personal. Even when our original officiant decided to crash the rehearsal, she helped us out a lot. The Masonic's caterer and service was amazing. We asked for Polish food for our reception and it was some of the best food I have had. Pierogies, stuffed cabbage and kielbasa. Everything was home made and delicious. I can't thank Melanie and The Masonic enough for their services and being an amazing venue/caterer/planner for our wedding.

I had used the Masonic Temple for my recent wedding and absolutley loved everything about it! Dorothy is the most fabulous woman to have helping you throughout the whole process. She makes sure you have all the details needed and is always available to answer any questions. Everything about the Masonic is wonderful! It was so breathtaking seeing everything come together in the Crystal Ballroom. I felt like it was right out of a fairytale. The caterer that works with the Masonic provided a tasting date and deliscious food, guests were complimenting on it all night. You are able to bring in any vendors, linens, centerpieces, photbooth, coney dogs, etc and they also are able to help you with finidng them. The valet with the package was a huge plus! I could not have chosen a better venue for my big day!

First of all, this place is a gorgeous venue at a great value. It is completely breathtaking. Secondly, Dorothy is fantastic - she knows how to plan an event, and is super quick on the email responses. We had a few little set backs - during the rehearsal, we were asked to take a look at the ballroom set up, and luckily we did, because they had completely forgotten 3 tables. Apparently, their printer had cut off the seating arrangement, so the tables just didnt show on up their print out. I was glad that we figured that out before the big day, or else we'd have approximately 30 people without a seat! Apparently though, they set the tables for 160 instead of 120 (I only know this because Dorothy told me that the caterers were 'freaking out' thinking they didnt have enough food, because the final count was 120, and that what they had planned for). Also, the beer selection wasn't correct, but we did make a change to the contract (that had nothing to do with the beer) so, I think when they re-did it, it set back to the default choices. It was not that big of a deal, really, but the whole contract shouldn't change if one unrelated part changes. Either way, it was fixed that night. The bartenders were all very fun, too! They seemed as happy as a lot of the guests, so that was pretty cool.
Overall, it was a lovely venue for a reasonable price. I suppose it's good habit to reread the entire contract when any changes are made, so I'll just count that as a lesson learned! Dorothy was wonderful, and truthfully, I'd recommend any venue that had her as the coordinator.

The Masonic Temple is a wonderful place to have a wedding. They are very flexible and willing to accommodate any special request you may have, and they are a lot less expensive than other venues in the area. They actually offer a lot more than what's listed on their website (and it's free of charge). They will even put you and your fiance's names on the sign in front of The Masonic if they do not have any other events going on at the time of your wedding. Dorothy, the event coordinator was very helpful and easy to work with. The only issues I had were that the fish dish did not taste nearly as good at dinner as it did during our tasting, and there was some confusion about when and how to serve dessert, but otherwise everything else about the venue was great.

The venue was beautiful and Dorothy was amazing. But a week before my wedding, it was put in the news that the Masonic hadn't paid their electrical bill and their lights were going I be shut off. Dorothy assured me they would still be on for my wedding ceremony. They were, but they have had many issues with closing and such. Not sure how long they will be open.

The chapel in the Masonic Temple in downtown Detroit was a gorgeous location for our hindu wedding ceremony. I loved the medieval feel of the chapel with the stain glass windows and gothic architecture. Dorothy, the coordinator at the Masonic, was very helpful and easy to work with, and did everything she could to assist us in making our wedding ceremony a success. They allowed us to have a covered flame that we needed for our ceremony. And, days before our wedding, the sound technician worked with us to get the acoustics perfect. We held the ceremony at the Masonic Temple and had the reception elsewhere. I would highly recommend this beautiful location for a ceremony.
