Jane at the Michigan Union helped our dreams come true. She kept track of all the details very carefully even though we were mostly communicating on email or phone (since we're in a different state). She provided very thorough information. The rest of the staff at the union were also very helpful on the day of the wedding, which was a Sunday. Some last minute furniture needed moving and added and everything was taken care of immediately. The food was great. It was also very reasonably priced. They showed great flexibility with the menu, i.e. even though our vegetarian option wasn't vegan they agreed to provide one or two vegan plates for guests who were vegan. The food tasting was great too because we got to sample a lot of food and choose from all the options available instead of a few select things we may like. All in all we recommend this venue.Sent on 07/16/2017

I was one of those brides when it came to last minute changes and swaps. Ken Knell at the Union was so great to work with--he made everything I wanted happen. The staff the night of were amazing. They made us a to go box of food, carried everything out to the cars, and took care of us like were family. I'd highly suggest a trip to the Union if you're looking for a great venue for your wedding.Sent on 06/26/2014

Great Venue! We love using our up-lighting here. The staff is so easy to work with. It takes a pro team to come together and serve you so well! Great job Michigan Union!
