Lochmoor Club and More Wedding Planner Tour Recap – November 14

This past sunday I spent the afternoon with several other wedding planners touring great venues of Detroit. Bill Lonskey of  The Quintessential Event Company planned our tour. We all gathered at Chair Covers and Linens in Madison Heights. DeVonna treated us to coffee, donuts, pastries and fruit. She has beautiful linens and accessories and here is a picture of something blue!

Of course we traveled in style in this pink hummer courtesy of Satisfaction Limousine.

Our first stop was at Lochmoor Golf Club in Grosse Pointe. They treated us to a delicious brunch and the tables looked spectacular. Yes more food ! What a treat for us to be the guest’s!
Here are a couple of simple centerpieces that I thought one of my May bride’s would like to see so I snapped a few pictures of them as we are currently working on her table design.
We then headed on to Western Golf Club in Redford. This place is really a hidden treasure and is so close to my home. I discovered it last month when I participated in a Bridal Show there. They are definitely ready for the holidays and winter weddings. They also served us bruschetta and a tasty mushroom strudel. A beautiful table design was also showcased for us.

Our next stop was the Detroit Historical Society. This is an interesting place to have a event! Check out Detroit’s first car.

 The Hard Rock Cafe downtown Detroit was another fun place to stop. Mary, the catering manager put together a fantastic tasting for us including a yummy salad, spring roll appetizers and my favorite was the twisted mac and cheese made with 2 cheeses. YUM! I think we all needed a nap after that! Everything was served in a beautiful martini glass for a classy presentation. Outside of the cafe there is an amazing Atrium space with a waterfall that extends from the ceiling. It is so unique and unfortunately my camera doesn’t show just how stunning it is.

Our last stop on the tour was the Inn on Ferry Street. This is a collection of historic homes that have been turned into hotel rooms. It is a top-ranked property by Expedia. A great place to host your guests instead of the typical hotel chain.  They also have some space for smaller receptions or showers. They book up super fast so it’s best to call early.

The tour is always a great day of fun away from the office. It allows us to be the best planners we can be by always seeing new and unique event space so we can plan awesome weddings for our clients. Can’t wait until January 30th for the next one! If you would like any additional information on these venues or would like to hire You’re The Bride to plan your event please call us today at 248-408-4602.
