The Henry Ford is Michigan’s most award-winning event destination.

Three awe-inspiring experiences:

  • Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation makes a dramatic first impression for your guests. Start with the grandeur of timeless architecture, before moving to museum surrounded by national treasures that provide a one-of a kind backdrop for your wedding. Imagine dancing the night away under the outstretched wings of a soaring DC-3 airplane. Serves up to 400 guests for a wedding and reception.
  • Lovett Hall is Michigan’s most beautiful ballroom, built by Henry Ford who lavished attention on the facility, from Burmese teak floors, crystal chandeliers, two garden courtyards, ballroom balcony, surrounded with grand windows and enormous paired fireplaces. This remarkable 1930’s gem serves up to 300 guests for a wedding and reception.
  • Greenfield Village – if your dream wedding is traditional, yet unique and timeless, you’ll love Greenfield Village. Martha Mary Chapel is a picturesque New England Style Chapel, ideal for an intimate wedding. Followed by a candle lit dinner in Eagle Tavern where you are enveloped with a warm glow that sparks magic and invites your guests to stay all night. Serves up to 135 guests for a wedding reception.

    Elegant historical venue

    The Henry Ford is the perfect venue for anyone who is looking to host an elegant and beautiful wedding! Our wedding ceremony and reception were both located in Lovett Hall, which is a stunning ballroom located behind the main museum. Lovett Hall is a gorgeous venue, with marble floors, large fireplaces, and crystal chandeliers hanging over a wooden floor. Donna was our wedding coordinator, and she did a wonderful job helping us plan our wedding, from picking out linen colors and tableware to helping us organize a room layout and timeline. All of the guests loved the venue, and everyone was raving about the food. I particularly loved the extra touches that The Henry Ford offers, such as a champagne toast, customized signature drinks, and a pretzel bar snack bar. We were able to take our wedding photos throughout the museum, which led to some incredible and unique photo opportunities. Booking our wedding during the first quarter saved us thousands of dollars, which made this venue affordable for our budget. Overall, the staff at The Henry Ford helped bring my wedding vision to life, and I couldn't be more grateful for all of their guidance and support.
