SIMPLY AMAZING!!! I knew it would be a fairytale from the moment I looked at the venue. The Henry Ford was unbelievable. I worked with Jennifer during all of our planning process and she made the entire experience wonderful. She answered all of my questions (sometimes multiple times because I forgot the answer) and was quick. From the food tasting to making sure everything was delivered the week of the wedding, everything was flawless. I saw her the day of the rehearsal and the wedding day which made me feel so comfortable. Our guests LOVED the idea of being in the museum. Many were shocked when they found out they could walk around the entire museum for the night. The food was amazing, the staff was so helpful and nice. I could go on and on. We had an amazing wedding at an amazing location and we could not have been happier.Sent on 04/11/2012
