Colony Club: Where Classic Weddings Take Life in Downtown Detroit

Updated: Mar 6

The Colony Club, on Park Avenue in downtown Detroit, provides the perfect backdrop for an elegant wedding. Soaring gold-leaf ceilings, glittering chandeliers and beautiful historic detailing make this wedding venue a popular location for the discerning bride-to-be. But, if the details aren’t captured with a skilled and creative eye, the character of the Colony Club fades into the background.


We have documented a number of weddings in the Grand Ballroom, mezzanine, and 4th floor settings to create wedding films to remember the day forever. Our unobtrusive style mixes the intimate details with the monumental moments, capturing the emotion and meaning of the day.

We loved working with Niki of Niki Marie Photography to document Menali + Scotty’s wedding at the Colony Club, which was a uniquely beautiful Indian/Christian ceremony and reception.

We partnered with Breanne Rochelle Photography for Maryam + Kaveh’s Persian wedding. I feel right at home filming weddings at the Colony Club, and I like highlighting the elegance of the building and the beauty of each unique couple.

We know the lighting and best angles throughout the building. I love capturing the newlyweds being introduced on the gilded balcony above their surprised guests. The gorgeous 30-foot windows give pictures and videography soft natural light and elegant styling.

The Colony Club offers versatility and convenience for wedding parties of any size. The Grand Ballroom on the 3rd floor can accommodate parties of 400 with plated entrées and dancing, and for a more intimate setting, the Petite Ballroom on the 4th floor accommodates 150 for dinner and dancing. A premium bar and ample parking make the Colony Club convenient for both the wedding party and those in attendance.


With all-inclusive packages, you can rest easy knowing your wedding day will lack nothing, will stand out as an elegant and classically styled event, and will be remembered forever with 97 Films capturing it all.
