Shawna was my everything while planning from North Carolina.
Planning a wedding is an exciting but, stressful time in a bride's life. Then life happens and you have a million other things going on all at the same time. After deciding to get married in Detroit, I did my research from a far and fell in love with the Roostertail - sight unseen. People thought I was crazy when I told them I booked a venue I hadn't seen in person. Outside of my diligent research and reading 100s of other reviews, there is one word that explains my final decision to sign on the line. SHAWNA. She is amazing. Not only did she understand my vision immediately- she understood me and my fiance as people. She was able to make suggestions that were exactly what I wanted even though I gave her a scattered description of what I thought I wanted after a long day of work. When my fiance and I decided we wanted to share how we like to eat with our guests and not have a sit down dinner but, do tapas and heavy hor d'oeuvres all night long- she rolled with it and made my dreams come true! She knows how to read people, and truly is an asset I never thought I would have the pleasure to work with. She is personable and professional, never pushy, and always responsive. Shawna consistently went above the call of duty and even listened to me cry about things completely unrelated when I was having "one of those days." It's not hard to find a beautiful venue (although few are AS beautiful as Roostertail)... there are so many. What is hard to come by is a venue with a reputation as outstanding as The Roostertail, few places have been serving the community as an event center as long as they have. I can't say enough great things about my experience and encourage every bride to do your research-- the options, packages, level of service, attention to detail, love and care that the Roostertail provides is unparalleled. If you want to know that you won't have to worry about a thing on your wedding day, and that someone has you covered on all the days leading up- you want to get married at The Roostertail.Sent on 03/19/2019

Our ceremony was at Sweetest Heart of Mary and many of our guests stayed downtown and really enjoyed this venue which shows off the best of Detroit with views of the marina, the river, and downtown with the Rencenter and Bridge... breathtaking at dusk and romantic at night with the fountains and lighting effects .. just awesome. The staff take nothing for granted .. great food and service all through the event .. tireless attention to detail.

Darnesha and her Dream Team!Sent on 02/05/2018
We were in the best hands the day of our winter wonderland wedding when we had our intimate wedding of 46 people in the Roostertail’s beautifully redone Club Room.
First and foremost, Darnesha and her Dream Team. Oh my goodness. This girl endured my constant calls and emails and handled my organization overload with ease! There isn’t a detail this girl missed on our wedding day…plus she’s super sweet and adorable and a joy to talk to! The same went for the rest of the staff that helped on our wedding day. I wish I could remember all their names because they were all SO nice and made sure that each and every guest was attended to. We received so many compliments on the location, the food, the atmosphere, but most of all, the staff and how friendly and how at home everyone felt! We cannot thank each of them enough for making our day so special!
The food and drinks – A++++. We had plated dinners with the option of chicken piccata, salmon or a spice rubbed sirloin with bordelaise sauce. All had ravings reviews. Appetizers were delicious too!! I have more to write here by Wedding Wire has a limit lol.
I could seriously rave on and on about the Roostertail, it’s staff and it’s service. We had the most incredible night and not one person at our wedding had a bad experience and raved about it being one of the best weddings they had ever been to. It was a magical evening and Adam and I felt like we were accepted into the Roostertail family and have never felt so loved and taken care of as we did on that day!
If you’re having a big or a small wedding, the Roostertail has the space you need in a beautiful location and a staff that truly goes above and beyond what is expected of them. I highly highly highly recommend it!
The Roostertail offers two charming wedding ceremony sites and we've had the pleasure to perform weddings at both of them. They have a phenomental staff that is able to personalize each wedding. No two ever look the same. The Roostertail is an icon in Detroit and they have decades of experience in this area.
