Gorgeous views and landscaping. The pictures were wonderful and the front lawn was the perfect location for our tent reception. Fantastic venue!Sent on 04/05/2012

We were very happy with our ceremony at Grosse Pointe Academy Chapel. The chapel was breathtaking. We used a string trio for our music, and it set the mood perfectly. The only things negative things i can say are that they can take a while to get back to you, but that is because Peggy (who handles ceremony planning) is only in the office 3 days per week, also they were a little stringent on getting us out of the chapel immediately after the ceremony, since it costs so much to use the space, we were expecting a little more time to take pictures with our families. All in all, it was the perfect place to get married!Sent on 06/26/2013
The Grosse Pointe Academy's reply:We are glad you enjoyed holding your ceremony in our chapel. It is truly a special place. Since your wedding took place in 2013 our staff has changed and we are in the office 5 days a week. We try to respond very promptly to requests for information and inquires via email and phone. The Academy allows 2 hours for your arrival, ceremony and photography on the day of the wedding. If one needs additional time it can be booked on a per hour fee basis. Thank you.
