The Collins at the Clocktower AMAZING VENUE!!!

Enzo's Catering was honored to be the Caterer for the FIRST event ever at the beautiful Collins at the Clocktower! What an amazing Venue! Enzo's Staff was truly impressed with the dedication and preparedness of Owner Amy Collins and her Coordinator Callie Simpson! The Clocktower is such an incredible historic site for the community and using it as a Wedding Venue is simply Visionary! Enzo's Staff has worked in many different types of Venues all over SE Michigan and The Collins at the Clocktower simply one of the most unique!
Highly recommend for all Brides and Grooms marrying in the area to consider the Collins locations in Chelsea as a go to for an "any season" experience.
Of course, using Enzo's Simply Delicious Menus is the way to to for Catering needs. It makes your day even more unique and well rounded! Owner and Chef, Vince Sencich is highly talented in assessing a "room" upon arrival to make every Wedding unique and beautiful. Working with the Collins staff has been a true delight. They stayed in close contact with Enzo's to communicate how the Clocktower works, logistics, planning and working future events. Enzo's Staff from Planners to Service staff couldn't be more pleased with the level of professionalism of The Collins off Main AND The Collins at the Clocktower!!
Looking forward to planning many more beautiful events there!

Happy Bride

We just got married and had our reception at The Collins at the Clocktower, and it was everything I could have dreamed of! Y’all, let me just say that you can not believe what perfect timing and providence it was. My original venue had just fallen through on me when I saw an ad for the Clocktower on facebook 45min after it was posted, and I contacted them immediately. It was a brand new, up and coming location, so the ad only had a picture of an artist’s rendering of what it would look like, but I was already sold! I fell in love with the open space and those WINDOWS! Amy quickly got back to me and we set up a tour right after. I got the Clocktower booked about a week later in January for my wedding at the end of April, just 4 months later. We had the very first wedding reception in this space, and all the necessary renovations were completed in time to make for the most perfect day.

Now wow, what a location it is! This is an iconic building, and the fact that it has been renovated to be an event space is just brilliant. The space fit my 220 guests comfortably, with a dance floor and a large head table!
Their vendor list was fundamental in our search for a caterer within our budget, and we used their sister company, Blue Sky Event Rentals, for our table settings and linens. It made for the perfect middle ground between an all inclusive venue and a total DIY.
Amy Collins was upbeat and easy to work with, ready to roll with whatever wrenches come up on a wedding day, as they always do, without making me, the bride, aware of any of them. We had periodic phone calls which were helpful for keeping each other up to date and making sure that everything was on track.
All of my husband and I’s guests have raved about what a good time they had! Everyone loved it, I had several people tell me that it was the best wedding that they had been to in years. Not to mention that Chelsea was the perfect central location for all of our surrounding guests, and near hotels for the out of towners. I would recommend The Collins at the Clocktower to all future weddings!

hi, it’s me—CALLIE! 🤭

As the Marketing Director and Event Coordinator, I’m the voice behind your screen! I‘ve been at The Collins for a little over a year now and I’m so happy I stumbled upon this beautiful place! I’m your go-to girl for photo location recommendations and your low-key tour guide on wedding day.

Here’s some things to note about me.
- My brain is mostly made up of music lyrics from the 90’s to now.
- I love to spend my free time dancing + trying out new restaurants.
- I have an unhealthy obsession with slushees + breadsticks.
- I also work for the @tigers + @detroitredwings, so if you’re ever coming to a game let me know!!

Oh. and one more thing. I will 100% cry on your wedding day. I just really love love. 🥹 And I’m undoubtedly your biggest fan and hype girl.

If you ever have questions, I’m all ears! Reach out to me via email at marketing@thecollins.co ✨ xoxo
