    Beautiful Wedding Venue

    Our wedding experience was phenomenal! I would highly recommend The House for their excellent planning and prompt follow up (thank you Sarah Tufts). The value, location, plentiful and delicious food (and I'm an Italian who knows food) gorgeous atmosphere in ballroom and cleanliness was top notch. The covered canopy is ideal for a perfect wedding ceremony. In addition, the night of the wedding the added bonus was the professional serving staff; every one of our needs was catered to by the entire staff. I would HIGHLY recommend this hidden jewel in the Detroit Metropolitan area! Thank you again to our planner, Sarah Tufts!

    Nothing Short of Amazing

    We cannot say enough nice things about The Community House and our coordinator, Sarah Tufts. The Community House itself created amazing photo ops; from the beautiful tent, to the courtyards, to the reception hall, to the hallways with the staircase and chandeliers. The food was amazing (We had steak, chicken marsala and eggplant parm), the drinks were well mixed and the staff was friendly and efficient. Every waiter stopped us both to say congrats and made the day feel even more special. And we cannot speak highly enough of our coordinator Sarah who executed on our vision flawlessly. We kept expecting something to go wrong, as you always hear, but that moment never came. Sarah juggled every vendor fantastically and coordinated the "day of" perfectly. Any wedding day jitters or concerns were for nothing! If you are a couple who feels the slightest bit of anxiety about planning your big day, you should do so through Sarah and the Community House. They will take amazing care of you.
