    Beautiful Wedding Venue

    Our wedding experience was phenomenal! I would highly recommend The House for their excellent planning and prompt follow up (thank you Sarah Tufts). The value, location, plentiful and delicious food (and I'm an Italian who knows food) gorgeous atmosphere in ballroom and cleanliness was top notch. The covered canopy is ideal for a perfect wedding ceremony. In addition, the night of the wedding the added bonus was the professional serving staff; every one of our needs was catered to by the entire staff. I would HIGHLY recommend this hidden jewel in the Detroit Metropolitan area! Thank you again to our planner, Sarah Tufts!

    Nothing Short of Amazing

    We cannot say enough nice things about The Community House and our coordinator, Sarah Tufts. The Community House itself created amazing photo ops; from the beautiful tent, to the courtyards, to the reception hall, to the hallways with the staircase and chandeliers. The food was amazing (We had steak, chicken marsala and eggplant parm), the drinks were well mixed and the staff was friendly and efficient. Every waiter stopped us both to say congrats and made the day feel even more special. And we cannot speak highly enough of our coordinator Sarah who executed on our vision flawlessly. We kept expecting something to go wrong, as you always hear, but that moment never came. Sarah juggled every vendor fantastically and coordinated the "day of" perfectly. Any wedding day jitters or concerns were for nothing! If you are a couple who feels the slightest bit of anxiety about planning your big day, you should do so through Sarah and the Community House. They will take amazing care of you.

    Perfect Wedding Venue!!!

    I am so happy I chose the Community House as my wedding venue! They did an exceptional job in making the planning process run smoothly, and made sure our day was perfect! My guests loved the food and the staff is so accommodating and friendly! Sarah made planning easy and was there to help with anything we needed. We are very grateful for all of her help! The professionalism from the staff was top notch and our guests even made comments to us on how great there severs were that night. The space is beautiful and there is some great opportunities for photos right outside the building! We used the patio tent for our cocktail hour which guests really enjoyed. I have only good things to say about the Community House and I would highly recommend to anyone!

    Great service, great staff, great food

    What a wonderful and memorable place to hold an important event! Sarah is great to work with--responsive, great suggestions, available, kind--I cannot say enough about how wonderful she was. The staff was great, and I definitely appreciated the fact that Leon knew French and was able to speak with the French grandparents who knew no English. The venue is beautiful, the amenities are great and the service is the best you will find. All our vendors (DJ, florist and photographer) were familiar with the venue (we found the vendors on our own, it was just a coincidence they were all familiar with the venue), so they needed nothing from us except a date and time, which relieved us of some of the details. The food was wonderful and the price was great compared to so many other venues. I look forward to the next opportunity to host an event at the Community House. They make it easy and fantastic!

    Best Decision Ever!

    The Community House was the best decision we made for our wedding day! My wedding was June 8, 2019 and not only was the weather perfect, the level of service we received from The Community House was perfect as well! Sarah was our POC for our wedding; she was very helpful, responsive, professional and she even had a few ideas/suggestions for our big day! The food was excellent and our guests raved about how timely and elegant our wedding and reception turned out. I would definitely recommend The Community House for your wedding!

    Dec Wedding

    The community house is a wonderful place to have a wedding. Sarah, the event coordinator was amazing!!! I didn’t have a wedding planner and I asked her tons of questions. She was always super responsive and even let me know about things I hadn’t thought of. All the guests said the venue was great and they enjoyed the food. Definitely recommend!

    The venue is perfect for an outdoor ceremony and indoor reception. Sarah Tufts was the most helpful and accommodating ‘organizer’ we could have ever asked for! The drinks and food flowed all night and everything went perfectly!!

    Tim made every bit of this experience pleasant, easy, affordable and worked with every question/whim/solution that we came up with. Ultimately while we were over budget, it was worth every cent for what I 'put up with' so they say, which honestly if it wasn't for Tim i'd have lost my head already. They not only provide most of the in house services such as set up/tear down (which from my understanding not everyone does this) But he provided me permission to store wedding decorations the day before without a fee, they provided not only a giant room for us to get ready in (which also included a bathroom) and a mens room for them to get ready in (On campus) But they also provided food/tables/chairs/flatware/booze/accessories for the ceremony/access to their in house sound system/etc so it was a basically one stop shop. They even allow outside vendors if you so choose. While we used the suites upstairs for the ceremony we also used the ballroom for our reception. They have actually updated their lighting in the suites and planned to be updating them further throughout the building. Honestly the only out sourced thing I did with my wedding was the dj. I DIY'ed all the decorations and they provided the bird cage for cards. There is so much more I could say but give them a call if you're truely thinking about it. It never hurts to ask/look ;)

    Sarah Tufts and the rest of TCH staff were absolutely outstanding. From my first interactions with Sarah to departing our amazing wedding reception, they went above and beyond to make sure every request was thoughtfully fulfilled. In addition, they ensured that my meal was strictly gluten free, as I have Celiac Disease, and they even prepared special gluten free hors d'oeuvres for me. Tim and the serving staff, including Leon, were also exceptional. Thank you for such a magical evening all of us will never forget.

    The Community House is a beautiful venue for a wedding. Even though the weather did not cooperate, the staff made a seamless transition from outside to a beautiful inside location. Our guests have told us it was the best food at a wedding they have ever had. The filet was outstanding! Sarah was a joy to work with as well-very patient and accomodating. Highly recommend!

    Our strolling wedding reception hosted at The Community House was nothing short of amazing. The event manager Sarah took care of our every need, question, idea, and input in planning our event. Together we joined minds and planned a phenomenal affair. We wanted to spare no area of detail and opted to offer complimentary valet service & coat check. The attendants were so pleasant and prompt; we received many compliments after! The entire service staff was wonderful...from the bar to the servers. The food (we had tray-passed hors d'oeuvres) was delish; many many compliments!

    In all, I cannot say enough good things about the service we received from The Community House. From the first phone call I made to inquire about the availability to us closing our car door headed home, Sarah and the staff of The Community House made us feel as if we were the most valued customer. With high regards I would recommend TCH to anyone who wants to have their wedding dream come true!! :)

    The event coordinator at TCH was incredibly helpful and very responsive to all of our inquiries. The food was fantastic and TCH even made our custom signature drink from a recipe that we provided...we received compliments all night from our guests for food and drink! The terrace and ballroom were a perfect combination for our ceremony and reception, and one of the main reasons we picked this venue was because it was unique and intimate. Our wedding was beautiful and exactly how we envisioned.

    What a great venue. Event manager, Sarah, was a pleasure to work with as was all the staff on the event day. The outside ceremony tent, garden cocktail hour & dinner in the main ballroom couldn't have been any better. All three entree choices were delicious and the Bates Salad presentation was wonderful. Thank you Birmingham Community House for making our daughter's wedding so wonderful.

    When my husband and I first saw The Community House we knew it would be the perfect place to host our white wedding ceremony. Unfortunately we thought we couldn't afford it and kept looking. The other places just didn't leave us with the ah factor and didn't feel quite right. So we researched The Community House again and realized we could afford it and it wasn't anymore expensive than the other venues we were looking at. We quickly put down our deposit and worked closely with Sarah Tufts in setting our plans in action. Sarah was great to work with. She would promptly respond to emails and was willing to work around our schedule since we were out of town and we were primarily available on the weekends. It was a bit tough getting enough time to decorate but Sarah was able to get us a little bit of additional time in the morning and it helped us out tremendously to store some of the items there ahead time. We loved the experience there and our guests loved the venue as well. It didn't take much decorations as The Community House has a beautiful atmosphere. Thank you for the great customer service and flexibility!
