Woman Getting Married Says

I love the idea of getting married in a conservatory. Its’ glass ceilings and lush surroundings offer the best of indoor/outdoor weddings, but without the fuss of needing a tent or having to worry about weather. You feel like you’re getting married or dining under the stars, and the built-in greenery or flowers help add gorgeous, natural decor. The wedding planning team here gets great reviews from brides, and guests rave about the food. This is a beautiful, unique venue for all you Detroit brides!
