Incredible Staff, Incredible Venue

We had a May 2023 Wedding, our ceremony was held outside in the stunning Rose Garden overlooking Lake Michigan. Cocktail hour was also held outside under the veranda, while the reception was inside the H.O. Rose Room. I can’t say enough positive things about Stafford’s Perry Hotel Staff. Angie and the Team who work alongside wedding couples go above and beyond in every step of wedding planning to make sure you have a problem free, seamless, perfect wedding day. This is exactly the day we had. The food was perfect, the timing management is taken care of by the staff at the Perry Hotel. They give every ounce of care they have and put it towards your wedding day. I can’t recommend this venue enough, mostly because of the staff, but also because of the gorgeous garden views. The inside of the Perry is quite old, some elements I did not care for but with enough interior design elements (linens, candles, charger plates, florals, etc.) the place can be transformed into whatever you dream.

Amazing Venue!

The best thing we did was book our venue with Stafford’s Perry! Everyone there was so helpful from the very beginning, and were phenomenal to work with. Angie and Jill were fantastic to work together with, responsive with everything throughout the process, and more than willing to help. Everyone there was kind, welcoming, helpful, supportive, and we couldn’t imagine a more perfect place for our wedding. The location, food, and everything was perfect!! Stafford’s Perry is without a doubt five stars and the true definition of class and professionalism.

Wedding Venue of my Dreams

The Rose Garden Veranda was the absolutely the most gorgeous and picturesque venue I could have ever imagined. The backdrop with the sunset and the colorful flowers is like NO other. Angie was so helpful throughout the entire process. She is extremely knowledgable and her experience is unmatched. I was able to fully trust her recommendations. She is direct, smart and knows exactly what she is talking about. The food was delicious, the staff was very polite and our guests were so impressed. It was truly the wedding of my dreams. Everything about the Perry exceeded my expectations.
