Riverfront Wedding - An Eventective User from Detroit, Michigan

The DYC is an absolutely gorgeous venue and really created the perfect atmosphere for the day. There are two rooms, the Fountain Room and the Ballroom. We had our wedding in the ballroom, which is a large, open room with wood floors, white plaster walls, and dark wood frames. It was gorgeous. There are two women who I dealt with during the process, Julia and Jennifer (mostly Julia). They both answer emails quickly and are very helpful. Julia was there the day of as well as a head of ceremony guy. Of course, the DYC does have some major drawbacks. The first one is that the there is no A/C in the Ballroom. Thankfully, our wedding was in May on a day that the weather was in the 70s and didn't cause much of a problem. You are right on the water, have the large doors that catch a breeze outside, but I wouldn't chance it in July. The food was excellent. We got a duel plate, with salmon, braised short ribs, red skins potatoes, and veggies, and it was so much frickin' food. Huge. And delish. Again, I had a number of people coming up and saying how tender the meat was or how they never liked salmon so much before. Even months after, people are still saying it was the best food ever and how pretty the venue was. Last but not least, the pictures that we took came out amazing! Pictures can be taken on the docks by the water and by the marble water fountain in the middle of the park. It was a beautiful day and trust me when I say our pictures are breathtaking!!!
