Phenomenal Job
Silver Garden did an absolutely phenomenal job as our wedding reception venue! From the get-go, we were able to get all of our questions answered in a timely manner and were treated with nothing but kindness and professionalism. We worked primarily with Ann Marie and Kim, and both were super friendly and just awesome!

On the day of our wedding, Silver Garden was completely prepared for a snowy and rainy day (every pathway was shoveled and salted) and kept the party moving along right on time. The entire staff was helpful - I even had a staff member ask me if I was alright when I walked inside from the cold! Many congratulated us as well and were overall so nice!

The space was clean, absolutely beautiful, and very affordable for a winter wedding. Over the 12 months of planning our wedding, Ann Marie and Kim were there for us 100% - they answered emails in a timely manner, always made sure we were getting the most bang for our buck, and guided us through the reception process so that we could make the most informed decisions while planning. I can't say enough about finding people that you work well with, and Ann Marie, Kim, and the rest of the Silver Garden team were just fantastic!

Finally, we received so many compliments on the food! Every dish was amazing and delicious. I personally am gluten free and dairy free, and the team worked with me to have a TON of food options available on my big day! I ended up having the quinoa dish, which was so, so good! My husband had the champagne chicken and couldn't speak more highly of it! No matter what food you pick, it will be some of the best food you have ever tasted! (The tastings were also super fun! Getting to try all the food was one of our favorite parts of wedding planning.)

The team also gave us the sweetest gift at our reception! It was such a pleasure to have our celebration with Silver Garden!

Ariel - Bride, December 2018


On November 6th, my co-worker and I hosted an all-day professional development for educators at your facility. It was our first time putting on such a big event (a very long day) for so many people. From the moment we walked in, until the time we left, Frank was ever so helpful!! He was there to help us set up the tech portion of our training; he offered help with food, chairs, etc.; he checked in on us just to be sure we were okay.  He really helped in making the day a success! We wish you and your staff (who were ALL excellent, by the way) a very happy holiday season!
Anna Mason - ATS, December 2018

Thank you so much for playing such an integral role in making our 2018 Leadership Meeting a success yesterday at the Silver Gardens Event Center. Your staff was extremely attentive and responsive to our ‘game day’ changes and accommodated our needs from A/V to hospitality. The Events Center has everything we need to conduct the multiple meetings for Fifth Third Bank, both small and large, that we did yesterday. Our team truly enjoyed coming back to our ‘home’ meeting site and the feed back was universally positive.
My husband and I had our reception at Silver Garden Events Center last June and we enjoyed every minute of it. The food was great, the staff was responsive and they worked with us to make our day special and personalized. We would absolutely recommend this venue.
Jackie Wojewoda - June 2018

Kenneth - Groom, July 2018
This was a great venue for our wedding! We were able to rent out the entire building which allowed for us to have a plan B ready in case of bad weather (which happened!) Even though we were set on having an outdoor ceremony, everything was swiftly changed to accommodate for our indoor ceremony and it turned out more beautiful than I could have imagined! The Mystic Ballroom was stunning during our reception. Food and drinks were excellent and the staff was very helpful all throughout the night. Ann Marie was exceptional in helping us plan the night and very easy to talk to regarding various ideas we had. Thank you for helping us have a night that we will never forget!
Sarah - Bride, May 2018
Silver Garden Events Center does an outstanding job for its clients before, during and after an event. Ann Marie and her team are excellent communicators, who excel at nailing down the right details without being overwhelming. The food is always delicious and the support staff are tremendous. As a vendor who completes nearly 1,400 events annually, we always look forward to events at Silver Garden because we know that they will run smoothly and our team will be supported to do the best we can.
ShutterBooth – Preferred Vendor of Silver Gardens Event Center, July 2018
Kassie & Ann Marie – We would like to sincerely thank you both for working so hard with us and making our event such a success!! We could NOT have done it without you and your team; Amelia & Frank were great to work with on Sunday & Monday. There were a couple glitches that we ran into, but they were addressed and solved quickly and seamlessly. We even had an emergency room visit and you all were accommodating to them as well.

It was so great working with you all!

Lisa Peers - Director, Internal Communications Beaumont Health, February 2018
I had the winter wonderland wedding of my dreams at this venue on December 23, 2017. It exceeded my expectations in every way. Having a large wedding of over 270 people in the prime of winter, I wanted to make sure that everything took place in the same location. I had both my ceremony and reception there and everything flowed very smoothly and was absolutely beautiful. The venue was truly transformed into a winter wonderland, and the food was amazing! As a bride wedding planning from a distance, Ann-Marie was extremely accommodating and made sure we had everything we wanted and needed. I would highly recommended this venue, my experience working with them was excellent!

Avery Snyder - Specs Howard School of Media Arts, September 2017
I just wanted to say thank you for a truly incredible evening!! Alli’s bat mitzvah was flawless (well just a broken dance floor for a few minutes) but other than that absolutely picture perfect. Your staff was exceptional, food delicious and plentiful. I couldn’t be happier with how things went. Everyone was raving about the facility.

Thank you.
Julie Feldman - September 2017

I have planned many events there and they always exceed my expectations. This recent event was very personal as it was my dad’s retirement. The staff was friendly, the setup was outstanding and the food, people are still talking about how good it was. Thanks for excellence!!!
LaTonya Spearman - July 2017
This venue is PERFECT for having your ceremony and reception all in one location. Carol and the other staff were extremely helpful with making sure that our day was perfect! There were no problems or issues the entire day. Thank you for making this day the happiest day of me and my husband’s life!
Laressa and Eric - 2016 Bride & Groom
I’m so glad I chose the Silver Garden for our wedding reception. The staff, especially Carol an Kali were very helpful throughout the planning process. Carol made sure we didn’t forget any details on our special day. The food was excellent, the seared salmon an beef tenderloin OMG!! The bar staff, waiters, everyone was just so wonderful. I can’t thank you guys enough for helping to make our day so special. Excellent staff and service, what more can ask for.
Danielle Westbrook-King - 2016 Bride
My husband and I were married at Shriners Silver Garden on March 19th – we could not have picked a better venue! We fell in love with the Mystic Ballroom during our first visit, which is where we had our ceremony and reception. Our ceremony was beautiful and elegant and our reception was intimate and fun – the room gave off the perfect vibes for each part of the wedding. The food was great! Ann Marie and her staff went above and beyond to make our day perfect! We could not be more happy with this venue, and would highly recommend it to any couple looking for a place to share their special day!k for.
Brooke - 2016 Bride
The staff at Silver Garden Events Center went above and beyond to make our day special. Ann Marie Mathews went above and beyond to make my daughter’s wedding day perfect! The food was delicious, the staff attentive and Ann Marie worked well with all the outside vendors (flower person, lighting guy, photographer, cake person and DJ). I would highly recommend Shriners Silver Garden Events Center to my family and friends. Thanks again Ann Marie!
Mrs. Cynthia Telep, Mother of the Bride Telep-Ely Wedding, March 19, 2016
We had our wedding there Friday and we just had to write to tell you how incredibly happy we are with everything.  Everything was perfect from the second I walked into the door until the second I left. The ceremony went well and I was very impressed that the staff was able to set everything up correctly. There was nothing that we needed to set up or worry about, and that was a huge relief! The flowers outside and hanging baskets were gorgeous and the whole gazebo area was kept up very well! The hall was set up beautifully and the napkin colors and chair sash colors were stunning with the stained glass window. The reception was a blast. We absolutely loved having the head table on the stage and being able to look out and see all of our friends and family. It really let us take it all in. The bar was phenomenal. 
I was lucky enough to use the Mystic Ballroom for my April 18th wedding! Everything was fabulous. The food is VERY tasty, and the entire staff is all very professional, I highly recommend this hidden gem. You will not be disappointment. There’s so much flexibility to have a different type of wedding than your typical banquet hall setup!
Dayna - 2015 Bride
The staff is phenomenal!!! Everything was great we could not have asked for a better day or venue!
Dreamai, Mother of the Bride - 4/18 Crenshaw/Ways

Chasity Woods - Crescent Academy
I wanted to let you know that we were very pleased with the assistance that you gave us in planning Kristina and Scott’s wedding. The process was new to us and it went smoothly in our workings with you and the staff at Silver Garden Events Center.
Thanks for all of your hard work that led to my retirement celebration being a huge success. I compliment the entire team that were involved in preparing for my retirement celebration celebration. I’m sure we’ll work together again. Since I’m retired, I’ll now have time to offer my services to others that want to host retirement celebrations, weddings, birthday parties, banquets, class reunion parties, etc. Again, thanks for your unselfish assistance! I’m sure I’ll work with you again!
Julie B.
I just wanted to thank you for hosting a wonderful event for us yesterday! I heard nothing but compliments about the food, presentation, service and facility. I also heard several comments from the guests about how they had not been in the facility in years, or how they had driven past it several times and had not been inside and how impressed they were with the facility as a place to host events. I do believe you made more than a positive impression with a very formidable group of folks! And, we are so very glad that we were able to partner with you! Let’s meet soon to discuss an event in 2012!

Thanks again.
Lori Tournay Liggett, Account Executive - Crain's Detroit Business

I wanted to pass on a note of thanks for all the effort put into last night’s event. The event management team is to be applauded for their coordination and attention to detail last night. The event staff were fantastic as well (and quite speedy too). Thanks so much for making this night so special for so many of our students. Thanks so much!

We got a lot of great feedback from our guests on how beautiful things were and how tasty the food was 🙂 You helped make our wedding perfect and we are so grateful for that! Thanks again!
Corina & Vio Herman
We would both like to thank you for being apart of our special day and bringing our vision to life. Both you and the staff helped make our wedding a joyous and memorable occassion that we will continue to talk about forever. Family and friends that attended the wedding mentioned that the venue was beautiful, the staff was beyond professional and will indeed consider the venue for functions in the future and we agree as well. Thanks again for your time, efforts, awesome teamwork, and patience. It was a joy to work with you all and we appreciate everything that was done.
Tarence and Shatarsha Jenkins
I can’t tell you how much your attentiveness and superior customer service has meant to me. This was the first time that I had planned a personal event of this nature. You made it so easy, and it turned out absolutely wonderful. The facility was beautiful, the food was delicious and the staff was gracious. I took guests into the larger rooms (ballroom, etc.) so that they could get a real sense of how great the facility really is. Many of them stated that they would like to have an event there, and plan tell others to use the Shriners Silver Garden Events Center, as well. You made Adam’s graduation truly memorable, and for that, I am truly grateful. I hope to do business with you again soon!
Carol M.
I want to thank you and your facility for assisting us in the most beautiful wedding on Saturday. I was impress with the professionalism of the staff and the food was fantastic. Everything was on point and timely. Erica made a presentation at the reception and she stated that “this is a dream come true”. As her father when I heard that statement by Erica it was worth all the time and effort and of course money. All of the guest were very impress with the facility and the food. Again I can’t thank you enough. When my daughter is happy then I am happy and she was ecstatic.
Claude Owens, MS, PHR Senior HR Client Partner - The George Washington University
I just wanted to take a few moments to formally say thank you for helping to make Christina Capoferi and Jake Dunlop’s wedding reception such a success. The first time my husband Jim and I met you, we knew we were in good hands. Your professionalism, patience and attendance to detail was remarkable. At the same time, you were very approachable which lessened our stress as the ‘big day’ grew closer. I have to compliment the staff you have employed too. Each was equally responsive to our questions and needs, no matter how seemingly insignificant at the time.
Thank you again for making Claire and Levi’s wedding so special. We received so many compliments on the venue and how wonderful it all was and how good the food was. You and your staff were so kind and helpful every step of the way – and we appreciate all of it!. Once again – thank you for your part in making last night so special. I do want to let you know – our server, Yessi – was absolutely fabulous – so kind, helpful and friendly. She went out of her way to make us all happy.
We would like to thank you and your extraordinary staff for making our Celebration Dinner a success. From the time we arrived on Sunday morning, Marcale saw to it that everything we needed was taken care of. He and Denise made sure every detail was handled with care and professionalism and all of your staff could not have been more accommodating. What a joy it was to work with each and every person at Shriners Silver Gardens. Our guests loved the venue and the food was outstanding! Thanks again for everything.
Terry and Charles Bailey
I am the mother of the groom and worked directly with Erin from Silver Gardens Events Center to create a spectacular wedding celebration! Silver Gardens Events Center is a fantastic venue and I would highly recommend this location for any function – weddings, anniversaries, corporate events and more! Erin and her staff were extremely accommodating to any request I had whether it had to do with the menu, the set up, the design, etc.
Thank you for your support during this event. Our client, ETS, was very pleased with the food and service you provided. The venue took this event up 100% from where they were last year and thanks to you and the Shriners, enjoyed the venue and event. Opal and I both felt good about this event. It was a lot of work, but it worked out fine. We will definitely recommend Shriners Silver Gardens to other clients in the future. Thanks again for all you did to make this a success.
Nellie LaGarde, NBL & Associates
I am taking time to send this email in order to be sure that your Management is aware that my event at the Shriners Silver Gardens was called by my family & friends as “The Classiest Retirement Party Ever”. The venue was top of the line, food was excellently prepared and presented beautifully; your staff neat, cordial, efficient, available if needed, attentive…and I can go on & on. The cocktails were perfect along with a pleasant bartender who made my guests happy. My slide show was a big hit due to Ann Marie assuring me everything was going to workout fine. 
Everything was spectacular!!! We had so many compliments on the food and the venue !!! Everything was truly amazing and could not have asked for a more perfect place and perfect staff!!! Thank you so much for all of your help and patience this past year!!!!
Thank you for everything,
