Facilities and Capacity
The inviting chapel accommodates 250 guests and has stained glass windows that allow the light to pour in and illuminate the Italian marble floors. It also offers a beautiful on-site formal parlor for the bridal party to prep in before walking down the aisle. The venue boasts manicured green grounds that are excellent for taking one-of-a-kind pictures, making it the perfect location for a historic and classic wedding ceremony.
Academy of the Sacred Heart offers a wedding coordinator that will assist in rehearsal coordination and the planning of your wedding. Their staff will make sure your event is unforgettable and will provide you with lighting, sound, and anything else you may need. The chapel only requires that at least one of the couple be Catholic, and they will refer you to several deacons and priests that can marry you in the chapel. They also allow you to have a full mass if you please, but that is not required.

We had our wedding at The Academy of the Sacred Heart. We needed a large church for our very large families and it was simply beautiful too! The coordinator, Danielle, was very helpful every step of the way. It was great to have her there on the day of the wedding too! Everything was perfect.Sent on 09/09/2013

Danielle and all the staff at Academy of Sacred Heart have always been very friendly, helpful, and courteous to us as wedding musicians. The chapel is stunning with great acoustics. It's always exiting for us to perform there, because we are motivated by the sound and the architecture.
The Academy of the Sacred Heart and the lovely wooded area in Bloomfield Hills makes a beautiful setting for a wedding ceremony. It is historical and elegant . With that said, the perfect match for a traditional ceremony and wedding reception at the Townsend. The staff at the Academy are accommodating and timely in providing available dates, which is so important for a bridal couple in the planning process. A really nice feature is the Academy doesn't require membership and provides their wedding day coordinator.
