I’ve performed as a wedding dj at many nice places and Grosse Pointe War Memorial is no different. It’s truly a classic amongst the estates on Jefferson Avenue off of Lake St. Clair. The landscaping is something off HGTV and the reception site out back is movie material with a wide expanse of Michigan Water as a backdrop. Like most places i play the biggest strength – it’s beauty is also one of the dj’s biggest hurdles. Hurdles because getting people (my dancers) off the terrace on a beautiful night or from walking over near the lakeside can prove a challenge. The food and wait staff are great and the way it’s set up with huge window views makes you almost feel like you’re on the water. The cocktail/receiving area just outside the ballroom doors is size-able enough to hold an average size wedding with enough spillover room throughout to accompany an even bigger crowd. I’ve done weddings in both the larger ballroom and the “library” (I think they call it the library) when the crowds were smaller. Either is a great choice especially for those that want a water view.

I’ve played the Inn at St. Johns many many times. Though the Atrium is their hallmark room, the other reception rooms are beautiful as well. Like many nicer facilities, this one has areas “garden areas” for brides and grooms to get married, to have their wedding ceremony at. In addition it is a full service church and a beautiful one at that.<br>
The drive up is gorgeous and the fact that you can stay overnight on the premises make this place an extremely attractive Michigan wedding ceremony and reception facility. The Inn at St. Johns is pretty easy to get to as it is located off a major interstate and is very close to Detroit’s Metro Airport. The staff is very friendly and professional as well. A few years back they did build a huge grand ballroom and I have played in there before as well. Anyway, check it out and expect to pay for the setting. It is a top shelf facility.
