We got married in exactly 1 year to the day we were engaged. We were always adamant about having a Detroit wedding but weren’t sure where where to start. We came across the Whisky Factory and fell in love with it immediately. Booking it was one of the easiest and best decisions that we have ever made.
Whether it was when we first secured our date, the constant communication and check-ins at certain points before the wedding to make sure we were as ready as could be, or the day of, there communication, insight, and efforts made for the perfect wedding. They have an amazing event team, but have to give a special shout-out to Bethany and Amelia for running the behind the scenes work the day of. Bethany was so helpful from the start with our tasting and helping us decide on which drinks would go best. Everyone is so kind and wants you to have everything you want and dream of on your special day.
We are speechless by how beautiful the ceremony and reception turned out. Without the Whisky Factory and their amazing staff, we would not of had truly the most perfect wedding.
You cannot beat this venue. If you book with them, they are also a distillery and make all of their spirits and cocktails in house. They also have partnered with two unique and we received so many compliments from our guests that it was the best food and cocktails that they had ever had at a wedding. We couldn’t have asked for anything better in a venue and we are so beyond happy that we chose them for our most special day.
Amazing Wedding Venue + Experience!
Thank you Whiskey Factory!
