    Fairy Tale Wedding

    Simply Amazing!!!! If you are looking for a Fairy Tale Wedding with a rustic feel, look no further. This is your venue!

    My daughter's wedding was 3 weeks ago and I am still on a magical high. It was worth every penny. Honestly my family and friends can not stop talking about the wedding. We are all obsessed with every picture and every post about this magical day. The weather did not cooperate but it didn't matter. Rain or Shine this venue is perfect!

    The staff at Solitude Links are amazing!!! Jen, Jessica, Katelyne, and Dakota did everything in their power to make this special day extra special.

    The food was delicious. We had strolling appetizers. We served our dinner family style. Michigan salad, pasta, chicken parm, pork tenderloin, mashed potatoes, and roasted veggies.

    Dessert...Sarah and Tyler chose Pie instead of cake! They guest loved it. The pies were provided by ACHATZ. We had a pie station with ice cream. It was set up 2 hours after dinner which was perfect.

    The ceremony was supposed to be outside but minutes before it started we switched to indoors. The staff made the switch without missing a beat!!!!

    DJ...Elysium Experience...WOW...Nicholas Hardy....Amazing!!!!

    Photographer....Jacquelyn Genevieve Photography....The pictures we have seen so far could be in a magazine!!!!

    Videographer...JD Entertainment...Brandon...I can not wait to see the video!

    Florist....Vivianos...Beautiful

    VRBO...We rented the house on the property. OMG!!!! It was right out of a Hallmark Movie!!!! Honestly it couldn't have been more perfect for the Bridal Party!!! The boys were downstairs getting ready and the girls were upstairs. Dakota from Solitude Links picked the Bridal Party up with the shuttle bus and took them to and from the venue!!!!

    The "adults" stayed at the Double Tree Hilton in Port Huron. The hotel was great in every way!!!! The staff, the room, the view, the gift shop, the restaurant, and of course the warm chocolate chip cookies!!! They gave us a discounted rate plus included breakfast for our group!!!

    Transportation for our guest was provided by....Preferred Charters.
    Brad was our driver of a 56 passenger charter bus! He took us to and from the hotel to the venue. He made multiple trips!!!

    Calming Effect Salon and Spa...Gabrielle did an awesome job providing hair and makeup for our wedding guest.

    Writing this review is making me cry happy tears all over again!

    Fantastic! two wedding bands up!

    Katelyne at Solitude Links has been wonderful to work with! I am constantly contacting her about questions I have and she always has the answer or knows how to find it for me. The process of a wedding is fun but also stressful, Katelyne and the Solitude Links staff take that stress away! Their packages are reasonably priced and include almost everything you need to have the perfect special day, if you are unsure about who your extra vendors are such as DJ, Photographer, Cake decorator, ect. They have a list of vendors they know and trust to help you out in your descision process!! My fiancé and I can’t wait to have our wedding at Solitude Links!

    Memorable!

    Justin and I had such a memorable wedding, Solitude Links made that happen. They truly have the best staff and most beautiful venue. I can not thank Jen and her staff enough for putting on our amazing day. Jen and her staff were very attentive and kind. They were available for any questions or help that we needed. As a bride you have a lot of questions about your big day and how it will play out. My questions were always answered in a timely fashion. Any concerns were always put to ease! They have a beautiful bridal suite to get ready in and a seperate room for the groom, which was very nice to have space to get dressed in and do our hair and make up. Also can I just tell you that the food was amazing! We did the buffet style and had the chicken marsala, beef tenderloin, fettuccine alfredo , mixed veggies, rolls and garlic mashed potatoes. Our guest were still talking about the food weeks later. It truly was perfect!
    We picked Solitude Links because of how beautiful the grounds are they have a gorgeous large gazebo on a large pond, a beautiful rock waterfall, wooden bridges and beautiful greens. Inside is just as beautiful, they have a large hall with cathedral ceilings and an awesome large outdoor balcony that has a bar, fire pits and patio furniture. Solitude has it all!
    We would definitely recommend this place for your big day ❤

    Jennifer is amazing!!

    We got married at solitude links this past summer amongst the craziness of Covid. Jennifer was extremely helpful, flexible, and responsive to all the changes that happened throughout the phases of Covid shutdown. She was involved all the way and up to the day of when we had to change things again a couple hours before the ceremony. Would definitely recommend solitude for any event. They did a great job.

    Our Happily Ever After

    Solitude Links is an absolutely stunning venue for your special day! No matter what your theme your guests will be in total awe with how gorgeous the venue is from the lake front gazebo ceremony site to the rustic beauty of the hall. Our guest could not get over how beautiful it was. When it comes to event coordinators, Katelyne is amazing. Not only is she willing to work with anything your heart desires but is also a great help when it comes to ideas for what works best for her halls. She took a lot of the wedding stress off my shoulders when it came to venue stuff. She will always help in any way shape or form. When it comes to the day of our waitstaff was unreal. Everyone kept telling me how sweet and polite they all were. They even got our guests going on the dance floor. Everyone loved seeing them have fun while they continued to bus tables and help anyway they were needed. We loved sharing our day with them. When you come to Solitude Links you are welcomed by all of the staff and feel like family when you go and never want to leave. I would 100/10 recommend this venue to anyone looking for a place to have their special day.

    Best Day Ever

    We had our wedding at Solitude Links on August 9th & day couldn't have been better. From our rehearsal the day prior to the end of the reception, I knew we were taken care of. Katelyne, Jessica, & their staff went above and beyond our expectations. Katelyne was such a pleasure to work with through out the year as well. She was very prompt to answer emails and answered every question while putting an ease to our minds. We received so many compliments about how beautiful this venue is as well. Highly would recommend Solitude for your wedding.

    Super Satisfied

    Working with Solitude Links staff has been an absolute joy for the entirety of my wedding planning process. Although the news of Jenn leaving instilled a small dose of anxiety, the transition to working with Katelyne could not have gone any smoother! There were absolutely no details lost in translation and she has been equally as lovely to work with. Her and Jessica (the assistant events coordinator) are so fun and have accommodated all of our needs so effortlessly! These two young ladies are such a beautiful asset to Solitude and they have been the perfect pair to help all of my wedding dreams come to life. I have full confidence that as our day comes and goes, no detail will be missed and no guest will leave dissatisfied.

    Wedding Review

    We just had our wedding here and it was the most amazing experience I could have asked for! All of the staff went above and beyond the entire day. Things that I was thinking needed to be done were already taken care of by the time I thought of them. It was the most stress free day, and I truly believe it was because of the amazing job of the staff. The venue is also stunning and has the most wonderful picture opportunities. I wanted to do an ice cream bar, and they took care of everything for me, and it was a huge hit with our guests. I highly recommend Solitude Links, as they truly made it the most amazing day of my life.

    Dream wedding

    On July 5, 2019 I had my fairy-tale wedding at Solitude Links. Honestly, I think it was more than I could have ever pictured. Jen & Katelyn were phenomenal!!! These ladies were extremely professional, super accommodating, and gave perfect ideas based on my style when I asked for opinions or suggestions. The waitstaff was a further reflection of these to wonderful women. The venue is one-of-a-kind. It has the rustic, yet elegant feel that I had always desired. I knew the moment I saw the place and spoke with Jen that we would have our reception there. We never even looked at another option! The only reason we didn't do the actual ceremony there was because I had always wanted a Catholic mass; although the stunning gazebo and walk-out porch had me reconsidering. The grounds provided gorgeous photos, especially during the sunset hours. Our food was absolutely spectacular! In fact, I have lost count on how many guests have complimented us on the delicious appetizers, dinner, and late night snack. They haven't been shy to mention that the drinks were quite refreshing too! Solitude Links surpassed my vision in every aspect and gave me the wedding of my dreams

    Breathtaking Venue

    After being the pickiest person I am, finding this venue was perfect for our ceremony and reception! Your 360 view is breathtaking from the inside to the outside! Staff was going through a change which I was very nervous about but it couldn’t have been more seamless! Being in such unknown of how things could or would flow so smoothly was a relief with Katelyne.

    So much to say for the inside and out, such beautiful woodwork, having your own suite, the option not only to have a bar inside but outside as well with you view looking over the water and landscape. The nice patio furniture and fire pillars for extended comfort, making memories and those romantic moments gave us every option thinkable!

    This venue has endless photography options. Photos was a huge part in considering a venue being when it pictures I wanted many different sceneries at one place and I got more than that!

    To be fair my guests enjoyed our menu options however my husband and I were so busy taking pictures, listening to guest rave about this venue and enjoying all the many views we forgot to eat!

    The location is very convenient, easy to get to and an awesome central location. I’m from more of the city Macomb area and my husband was from the Lapeer and more north area, couldn’t have asked for a better drive for our guests! Upon our arrival it felt like our little piece of paradise! Know main roads and express ways were so close yet never seeing or hearing any of this was perfect! This made enjoying time with friends and family in celebrating our wedding feel perfect!

    This venue is extremely recommended, Katelyne will make every step of helping you plan seem like a huge breath of fresh air and I was completely clueless with the whole who, what, when, where and whys. She did a wonderful job, I was never in wonder and if I was she responded or answered my call promptly. She is very accommodating and easy to work with, having unthinkable options just for your special day!

    Amazing Wedding & Very Friendly Staff

    Katelyne, Jennifer, Jessica & the rest of the staff at Solitude Links were amazing to work with. Everyone is so kind and they treat you like family! Katelyne, Jennifer, and Jessica are very knowledgeable when it comes to wedding planning and always made themselves available whenever I had questions. Solitude Links was the perfect venue for our Fall wedding & the views were absolutely breathtaking. We had many guests compliment how nice the seating and fire-pits were on the deck outside. A lot of guests also raved about the food and many said it was the best wedding they had been to. I highly recommend Solitude Links for your next wedding or event.

    A "snow" perfect wedding

    Is it okay to say that the staff at Solitude Links Golf & Banquet Center are so amazing... I'm pretty sure they made it snow on my wedding day?! Everything was as perfect as the snow I had been asking for leading up to my wedding. Jenn and Katelyn made us feel comfortable and were at our constant beck and call. The venue was gorgeous and the wait staff was "on point" the whole night! We loved working with (and laughing with) all of you! Thank you for keeping our drinks filled and making our day the BEST day, EVER! We love you guys! -Megan and Jimmy

    Oct 6 2018 wedding

    Jennifer is a pleasure to work with! All my questions were answered promptly, she is very knowledgeable with the whole wedding process. She had terrific ideas. The staff was also very great to work with; courtesy and hard working. The venue is gorgeous and the food is phenomenal. Our wedding was October 6 at 7pm. Leaves were just changing and the atmosphere at dusk was out of a dream. We chose to have two stations for food: slider and pasta bar. All of our guest loved it! I would highly recommend to have your wedding at Solitude Links Golf Course.
