The Detroit Athletic Club Michigan Wedding Venues


Wedding Photography is not just a means of livelihood for me; it’s a deep passion that I’ve nurtured and grown for over thirty years. Throughout those years, I’ve been fortunate to work with amazing couples and families, and also in some of the most prestigious reception venues in Michigan. One venue in particular that I am very fond of, and have had the honor of photographing many weddings, is the Detroit Athletic Club.

Once a hub for businessmen, the club is also a popular venue for wedding ceremonies and receptions for couples who want a wedding bathed in beauty, class, and prestige. The Detroit Athletic Club-or DAC as it is popularly known, is a large and stunning structure. It offers amenities and services that make it perfect for a Michigan wedding ceremony.

Now, without further ado, let’s dive into this week’s amazing venue spotlight!


What is the Detroit Athletic Club most known for

Impeccable service and classic facilities. They have a lot more going for them of course, but these two things top the list. Everything at their club speaks of beauty and class… two things that should always be synonymous with weddings, in our opinion.


·       What is the most unique facility in the club?

Honestly, the entire structure itself is something to draw eyes and hold guests in awe, and that’s no exaggeration. They’ve been dubbed one of the ‘finest private clubs’ in the entire country.

And if you know your history, you’ll realize the club’s architecture is Italian Renaissance-inspired, with ornate details marking every section of it. So, if you’ve ever dreamed of having a wedding somewhere classy that’s aged like a fine wine, the DAC is what you’re looking for.

·       What’s a wedding at the Detroit Athletic Club like?

Stunning, romantic, and intimate. The rooms are comfortable and tinged with vintage beauty, and the reception space is literally the perfect place to say ‘I do’ to your partner-to-be and to celebrate the most important day of your life surrounded by family and friends.

We reiterate that the venue itself is an exceptional backdrop for any kind of wedding, big or small. The rooftop banquet rooms, the large indoor event space, the Pontchartrain room, and pretty much every other section of the venue is perfect for taking photos in and that’s why we love it.


·       What about the catering?

Catering here is always a fun affair. The Detroit Athletic Club Catering creates memorable experiences with comprehensive packages for every kind of couple. There is little need to hire a catering service because they have one ready for you.

From catering services to culinary creations and a professional banquet team, the food they’ll provide at your wedding is guaranteed to deliver an experience neither you nor your guest will soon forget.


To all engaged couples looking for a truly classy and elegant wedding venue in Detroit, I highly recommend the Detroit Athletic Club. Speaking of Detroit weddings, you’ll need an awesome photographer who knows the club, where the best lighting is and understands how to capture every moment perfectly.
