I know we’ve done a post on the Detroit colony Club before, but after booking a 2016 wedding here, it renewed my obsession with this venue. This venue HAS IT ALL.

colonyclub2Located in downtown detroit, close to the fox theatre and comerica park, is the colony club. with two grand ballrooms to choose from, this venue is perfect for a wedding with up to 400 guests. besides CHANDELIERS, newly refinished wood floors, and BALCONIES, this space also comes with antique gold chiavari charis {which is always a bonus!}.
