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.

    Outstanding service!!!

    My experience with Lovett Hall/The Henry Ford was nothing short of amazing the whole entire process. From my very first meeting with Samantha Saylor, I knew we were in the best hands for our wedding planning! She was so prompt in her responses, genuine in her excitement for us, very helpful with tips and ideas of decor and food and so, so easy to work with. I absolutely could not have asked for a better Event Manager for our day -- an absolute DREAM. On the day of our wedding, we had a chef different from our tasting, a last minute change we were not even aware of (THANK YOU!) and everything was PERFECT!!! Our guest's raved about the food all night long and some even asked for seconds of the dauphinoise potatoes -- they are to die for!!! Everything ran smoothly from the moment we arrived at the clock tower for pictures, our Model T transportation on the grounds (highly recommend), to the end of night clean up and that was a big thanks to Pat (Banquet Manager). She was on top of everything, very attentive to my husband and I, but not overbearing at all. I truly cannot say enough great things about the staff at Lovett Hall/The Henry Ford -- they made our big day the absolute best!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

    Beautiful Piece of History with Incredible Staff!

    We absolutely loved our experience working with The Henry Ford! We had both our ceremony and reception at Lovett Hall and the day was nothing but perfect, and a lot of that perfection can be attributed to the thoughtful and detail-oriented staff. From the moment we walked into the ballroom at Lovett, we knew that we wanted to have our wedding in such an incredible and well-preserved piece of history. We were then paired with our awesome event coordinator Aileen who worked with us throughout our year-long engagement to make sure all of the details of our day were taken care of. She had great advice and used her experience to ensure our wedding was the best it could be. On the day of our wedding, Aileen worked with our vendors to ensure our vision was executed perfectly and our banquet manager Jason was completely on top of all of our guest's needs. I could not have asked for a better team of people to help make our wedding day amazing!
