It's no surprise that The Whitney has been dubbed "Detroit's Most Iconic Mansion," so it's no surprise that it's a popular venue for weddings. This beautiful restaurant is known for its one-of-a-kind setting, flawless service, and impeccable food, and it hosts events of unrivaled elegance and sophistication. Exchange your vows in the vibrant Garden, a tranquil haven complete with stone fountains, lush trees, and wrought iron fencing reminiscent of a bygone era. Perfect for outdoor weddings in the summer! The restaurant, which is housed in David Whitney Jr.'s Woodward Avenue Mansion, also has a variety of private rooms for sharing your sacred union with your nearest and dearest. Dine amidst historic opulence, from rich wood paneled walls to opulent crystal chandeliers. Enjoy a luxurious dinner prepared by the restaurant's finest team of chefs, completing a truly one-of-a-kind wedding. Look no further than The Whitney for timeless elegance and historic beauty on your wedding day!

This one-time estate of lumber baron David Whitney, where no expense was spared, transports you to the Gilded Age. With a rotunda, arches, spires, 52 rooms, and 20 fireplaces, it's a pretty cool spot for a Gatsby-style wedding.

Their ceremony locations, whether indoors or outdoors, are breathtaking. A beautiful fountain can be found in the Whitney Garden, which is overflowing with seasonal blooms. And what will top the mansion's second-story landing's rich carved woodland and 4-panel Tiffany stained-glass backdrop?

You have a plethora of luxurious spaces, posh menus, and a historic ambiance to choose from for your reception. Include a High Tea or Dessert Parlor shower, a nightcap in the Ghostbar Lounge, or live the dream and rent out the entire property for your case.
