About

On WeddingWire since 2024

Located in the historic Main St. East Building in downtown Kalamazoo, Michigan, The Desenberg is a newly renovated event space perfect for hosting your dream wedding. Constructed in 1886, it is the last remaining building designed by legendary Chicago architect Louis Sullivan in Michigan. Originally built to accommodate the Desenberg Grocery Company, the building has since housed banks, supply stores, sporting goods stores, tenants, and more, giving it an unmatched, storied history. With 17-foot-tall exposed beam ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows, The Desenberg combines classic features with modern sensibilities, creating a trendy, industrial vibe.

Facilities and Capacity

With a beautiful venue that can suit all sizes and aesthetics, The Desenberg can seat up to 180 guests. Fully equipped with an integrated sound system, atmospheric pendant lighting, and customizable uplighting, the space allows couples to choose the color palette and playlist that best encapsulates their dream wedding. A private lounge offers a luxurious space for the bridal party to relax and get ready prior to the celebration, with the option of a fully stocked bar and light snacks.

Services Offered

The team at The Desenberg is determined to make the planning and execution of your big day as stress-free as possible. With extensive event coordination available, their wedding specialists can plan your budget, book vendors, create a day-of timeline, and more, ensuring that you can relax and enjoy the moment. Tables and chairs are provided, and the catering kitchen is available for use by your chosen caterer. The Desenberg will also provide a recommended vendor list that they have worked with in the past, taking the panic out of planning.
