    We loved having our wedding at Motor City!

    My wife (to-be at the time) and I had a wonderful experience with Motor City Casino Hotel, starting with meeting Jennifer. She was our main contact and guide through the planning process. After having visited other venues and having conversations with lots of coordinators/managers there was a noticeable difference in how she communicated with us and how helpful she was with giving us an understanding of everything that had to be accounted for in the planning.

    And we simply fell in love with the Amnesia venue. For those of you who don't know it, it's on the 16th floor of the hotel, which is the same floor as their flagship restaurant, Iridescence. It used to be a night club, so it's multi-level, has a dance floor, professional lighting and a killer sound system built in. The perfect place for a party! Our DJ only had to "plug in" and didn't need to bring lights or speakers.

    They can set the lights there to any color you want during dinner as well. Our wedding accent colors were purple and silver, so we had a purple hue when people came in for cocktail hour, and throughout dinner. They offer basic linens/chairs/place settings. We opted to use an outside service to add some chair covers and table overlays, and we did the centerpieces ourselves, though I do believe MCC offers candle holders (which we didn’t use) and mirrors for underneath the centerpiece (which we did use). They made it easy to coordinate with other vendors. That’s a huge plus.

    We chose a package where they provided the reception space for 6 hours. They served hors d'oeuvres at a cocktail hour, served dinner and cake with a champagne toast. Coffee after dinner. The package came with bar time but we opted to pay for extra time--which is a nice option to have. We also added late night snacks which everyone loved. Jennifer helped us determine the right amount. I would have opted for more food, but she turned out to be right on with her estimate.

    There was ample room at the venue for our photo booth and it didn't intrude upon the dinner/dance/balcony space at all.

    Our ceremony (prior to reception) was brief and held in one of the MCC ballrooms. We opted for modest décor, but you have the freedom to hire vendors to fix it up any way you like.

    What I can't emphasize enough is how much Jennifer helped us with planning the ceremony and reception. I think we would have been lost without her. She kept us on track, coordinated and helped us through rehearsal, and even stayed the day of the event until we were at the dinner hour. Oh, and probably the most fun part of the planning was the tasting! You get to sample the hors d'oeuvres, salads, entrees, breads, and cakes! Yes, they make your cake. You can let the chef know what kind of design you want and he makes it come to life! Our cake was beautiful and delicious!

    Our wedding was not huge, 75 people, and I feel like the venue was plenty roomy for that size. Probably could've fit more.

    Again, we had our reception at Amnesia. You should definitely get a tour of it if you're considering MCC. The view is to die for—especially at night! With that and the lighting options, you don't need to add much decor. We will always love the memory of that night and we vow to someday have a celebration there again!

    Everything I hoped for!

    Jennifer and the team at Motorcity are top notch! So very easy to work with, very responsive to any questions or needs. The wedding package offered is quite inclusive, which took so much stress away. We did not have to look for or organize multiple vendors on our big day. Wedding food is not something I ever looked forward to, but the Chef and team prepared meals that our guests are still raving about! They even include your cake, and will design it however you want it. It was perfect, and the best cake I’ve ever had in my life. The view of the city is gorgeous, and unlike any other venue I’ve ever seen. It was just perfect.

    From the viewing of the rooms, the tasting, the rehearsal, our ceremony AND reception... I can’t thank them enough. We came back to celebrate our 1 year anniversary and were still treated as if it was our wedding day. I keep pushing my friends to pick this venue, because I so desperately want to be a guest here! I miss it so much! Do yourself a favor and call Jennifer. You will not regret it!

    The Soundboard inside Motor City is a reception venue for the couple that wants to be different without trying too hard. The food is great and the service is top notch! The room rental is high, but was totally worth every penny!
