Lafayette Grande is a historic wedding venue based in Pontiac, Michigan. This banquet facility serves as a distinctive venue that is in Oakland County. A landmark in Downtown Pontiac, it provides couples and guests with an atmosphere of grandeur for their wedding celebration.

Facilities and Capacity

With several event spaces available to make use of, there are ample choices available for the couple’s once-in-a-lifetime event. Exuding a vintage charm that comes across in almost every corner of the venue, Lafayette Grand offers a breath-taking setting. The Crystal Ballroom is a truly chic and eye-catching space. With its Chiavari-style chairs, colorful florals, and tall 1920s’-style centerpieces, there is much to admire. Here, up to 350 people can be accommodated to bask in the light from the crystal chandeliers. Elsewhere, the Grand Ballroom is another majestic area on the property. When decked out with round tables, a head table for select guests, and tasteful decor, it looks truly resplendent. The wood floors gleam underneath the glow of chandelier light, as everyone relaxes in this era-defined space. Up to 500 people can be seated for the reception meal here.

The Lafayette Ballroom is another one of the areas available to use. Suitable for a smaller, more low-key gathering, it looks just as polished as the other rooms. Round tables with decoration can be laid out for the meal as terrazzo floors shimmer elegantly beneath guests’ feet. Another space available at Lafayette Grand is the Pontiac Lounge. A luxurious space, it is as tied to a bygone period as the rest of the building. Akin to the speakeasies of the 1920s, the rich mahogany, marble flooring, and bar make it a remarkable place to gather.

Services Offered

A variety of wedding packages are available to choose from, meaning that many preferences and requests can be accommodated. To minimize the stress of preparing for such a big occasion, an event planner can assist with some of the details. They can also provide couples with a plethora of event rentals such as furniture, chair covers, decor, lighting, and a dance floor.

Cuisine

In terms of food, Lafayette Grand can provide a number of options to serve the newlyweds and their guests. A buffet can be laid on, including gourmet dishes to please a number of palates. Family-style catering can also be provided, perfect for an intimate celebration. Of course, those wishing for a sit-down option are also in luck.

History

Originally constructed in 1923, Lafayette Grand has been restored and refurbished over the years. A historic building with a rich past and a great deal of opulence, it has a noticeable presence on the Oakland County landscape. Today, it hosts special occasions and weddings.

    An Absolute Dream

    I could not have asked for a better venue! The Crystal Ballroom is such a unique and beautiful room and I was so happy to find a place that held the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception all in the same place. The tiered seating was absolutely perfect, my husband and I were able to see every single guest from our table, which was very important to us. Friends and family are still talking about how good the food was! There is plenty of space for the bridal party to relax and many spots to take pictures inside the historic building - including sunset photos on the roof! I was so excited to show off this venue to all our friends. I am so grateful for Lauren, Ryan and the entire staff for all their hard work and being so accommodating and kind. Thank you for everything!

    The most unique and beautiful setting for a wedding!

    Just had our daughter's wedding in the Crystal Ballroom at The Lafayette Grande in Pontiac. It was beautiful and unique setting. Have to see it to understand! The staff there led by Lauren and Ryan are first class. From our first encounter to the day after the wedding as we picked everything up, they could not have been more professional, accommodating and easy to work with. The food was wonderful - the staff who worked the event were incredible. We're still getting comments about the food and the setting from family and friends. Thank you Lafayette Grande for making our daughter and son-in-law's special day just that - special!
