Just Awesome. We love the staff, the food and the space. Highly Recommended! Party Pros Detroit
I have been blessed to perform many ceremonies at The Masonic over the years. I love just being in the temple. You see, I am a Mason and in this same temple I was raised to the 32nd Degree and entered the Scottish Rite and also became a Shriner. (Yep. I've cleaned up around the elephants and washed pots and pans at the circus!) Anyways, back to why I'm writing. For the past 10+ years I have interacted with the Event Management Team. They handle everything from concerts to weddings to banquets and they know the facility inside and out...literally. Under their guidance, rehearsals, weddings, and receptions happen flawlessly. A cathedral-like chapel setting, proficiently managed. You have to see it to believe it!
