Husband and wife team. Very professional and easy to work with. They knew all the poses they wanted and got them done quickly and beautifully. They were very friendly to our guests, and took all the pictures we wanted and more. We do highly recommend them.

( 5.0 / 5.0 )
Stacy Sipes is truly a talented stylist. She was able to give me the style I wanted without me having to ask for it. The style lasted all night without fuss. She was easy to talk to and very friendly.

Gold & Silver Town Jewelry
 
( 3.0 / 5.0 )
Wendy custom created my rings and they are stunning. The price was very reasonable. Wendy is a pro at helping you create the ring of your dreams. My only complaint is that I have yet to get my appraisal after 3 months and when I call they never get back to me. Great job on the ring not so great on the service.

Men's Warehouse
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
It was easy to get them as the location was nearby and they do a good job of keeping it all organized for you. They even called to remind us to get the guys in! We worked with two other employees before finding one that actually had a great knowledge of how to help us pick what would work for us. The guys all looked great.

Gino's Surf
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
For my husband's bachelor party they headed to a Tiger's game at Comerica Park. Then they went out to party at Gino's Surf. They didnt rent a hall at Gino surf rather just enjoyed their tiki style bar. The staff was very friendly the drinks were a bit expensive but that was expected.

Brides To Be Shows
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
The shows had lots of samples and opportunities to speak to vendors and book them, if you want. They also had fun games and opportunities to win prizes. I won free tuxedos and my girlfriend won a whole wedding! The trick is to stay until then end you cant win if you leave.

Bridal Shower: The staff was easy to work with, and the shower went beautifully. The food was plentiful and delicious we had many nice compliments about it. The price was right and I wouldnt have it any place else if I could go back. I was very pleased.

Davids Bridal
 
( 4.0 / 5.0 )
The dresses were beautiful and well-made. The staff was a little pushy when it came to rushing and ordering sizes. However, in the end it worked out wonderfully and all the girls were happy, and looked stunning. Youll need to make an appointment even just to go look at dresses but that is actually nice because it keeps the store from getting overcrowded.

The Bank
 
( 1.0 / 5.0 )
Bachelorette Party: The bar was very over-crowded and the drinks were very pricey. The only bathroom they had you needed to go downstairs to use, and the staff was grumpy. The DJ told my girlfriends it wasnt his job to announce my bach. party (it isnt but it would have been nice and wouldnt have taken any effort on his part.) We ended up leaving to dance at a hole-in-the wall bar which treated us great!

4 stars: Reception Site: The hall was beautiful and the staff was super in helping us to organize the event. As I mention below, the food was great, the room was beautiful. The best part was how easy they made the planning. They truly kept me organized and on track. My only complaint was a crabby bartender! 5 stars: Catering: The food was one of the finer points of our evening. It was very tasty and looked beautiful. We had heard people rave about the food at this hall so it is one of the reasons we booked it. My only regret is that we didnt get to take any home! 5 stars: Cake: Our cake came with our hall reservation but it was Beautiful and delicious. The baker was willing to work with us to give us any kind of cake we wanted. This was definitely a bonus to our Hall site. 3 stars: Hotel Block: The rooms were very easy to block but a little on the pricey side. However, we got our room free so I cant complain. Beware if you have a group that is ready to party after the reception, as the security is very strict. My group was a just little loud but certainly not disruptive and security was at the door very frequently we felt harassed.

St. Blase Catholic Community Church
 
( 5.0 / 5.0 )
This is my family church so I wouldnt have had it any other way but to be married there. Working with the kind priest, Father Randall Phillips, was so easy and all it took was a call to the office to get any questions answered. He made the mass very special with his words and his presence. They require you to be registered parishioners and have specific rules for things such as aisle runners and flower arrangements so if you're not flexible this wont be a good choice for you. If you want a meaningful Catholic wedding this is a wonderful choice. I was able to pick out my music one-on-one with the director of music. He was very open to my ideas and even ordered a new song for the wedding. The musicians were wonderfully talented. We received so many compliments on how much the music enhanced the mass.
