Our Perfect Wedding!

Reflecting on my September wedding, I am filled with immense gratitude and joy. It was, without a doubt, the most magical day of my life, and it wouldn't have been possible without the extraordinary team at Rock Events, especially the incredible Lauren Jacks.

Our venue, the Madison Theatre in downtown Detroit, provided a stunning backdrop, and Lauren's expertise shone throughout the process. Her ability to work seamlessly with all our vendors, some familiar and others new to her, was remarkable. The synergy and coordination she displayed ensured that our special day was flawless.

Knowing Lauren was there, I vividly remember the feeling of absolute serenity and confidence. She was more than just a contact at the venue; she was like a day-of coordinator, handling everything with finesse and professionalism. Her attention to detail during the venue visits and the valuable reminders she provided were crucial in making our wedding day perfect.

Lauren's involvement made the entire experience much less stressful. Her calm demeanor and exceptional organizational skills gave me the assurance that everything would go according to plan. And it did! Not a single thing went amiss on our wedding day, a testament to Lauren's dedication and expertise.

In summary, Lauren Jacks and the team at Rock Events played an integral role in making our wedding the best day of our lives. Their commitment, skill, and passion for what they do were evident in every aspect of our celebration. I highly recommend Rock Events and Lauren Jacks to couples seeking a dream wedding experience. They are the dream team that can make your wedding day as perfect as mine was. Thank you, Lauren and Rock Events, for making our dream wedding a reality!

Vice President, Event Venues Team

Hi there! As Vice President of the Rock Events Venues Team, I’m fortunate to be working with the most talented and dedicated Event Managers and Facilities Technicians. Our team is laser focused on providing unforgettable experiences for clients and event attendees. Following my graduation from Michigan State University (Go Green), I moved to Florida to kick start my career in the hospitality industry, serving as an Event Manager for a Destination Management Company overseeing events in Miami, Palm Beach, and Naples. However, I took notice of the impressive developments in downtown Detroit and was drawn back home to oversee the Rocket Companies portfolio of venues. Reflecting on the past decade, standout moments include hosting my dream wedding on The Madison rooftop, embracing motherhood with the arrival of my beautiful daughter, and contributing to the growth and success of our extraordinary event venues. There is nothing more rewarding than helping others create memories that will last a lifetime!

Event Venues Team Coordinator

Hi there! I am Brittany Wenson! I am a graduate from Michigan State University where I received my Bachelor of Arts in Hospitality Business with a focus in Event Planning. I began my professional career out of college with an amazing opportunity working in New York for the New York Yankees. Yes, I know, unpopular opinion but I do love baseball. I was able to kick start this passion of events in the city that never sleeps, and boy was it awesome. Once I moved back to the mitten, I started my journey on the Bedrock Event Team and I can’t believe it’s already been 2 years. I thoroughly enjoy planning events of all kinds but one of my favorites would be weddings. There’s just something about a bride and grooms’ big day that gets me so excited! When I am not assisting with your event you can catch me on the sidelines dancing as the Detroit Lions Cheerleader or coaching a high school dance team.

Senior Event Sales Manager

My ideal world would be one filled with rescue cats & dogs, lots of chocolate (especially if peanut butter is mixed in), and the ability to teleport myself to amazing destinations around the world. Throw in some spectacular corporate events and I’m the happiest gal in Detroit! I started managing events over 20 years ago at Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC while also teaching Event Management at Duke University. Along the way I earned my CMP and CPCE designations. One of my favorite events was working with the over 40 national political leaders on a multi-day conference. Talk about a lot of moving parts & endless security meetings! I’ve been back in my home state of Michigan for nearly 4 years and just love it. I am a co-founder of the Detroit Events Council and am active as a national committee member in NACE. In my spare time, I volunteer at the Detroit Zoo hanging out with the penguins and polar bears.
