The Academy of the Sacred Heart




Tucked away on 44 wooded acres in Bloomfield Hills, the Chapel at the Academy of the Sacred Heart is one of metro Detroit’s best-kept secrets. A Michigan historical site, elegance and timeless tradition define this Catholic chapel and its surroundings. From the rose window to the attention to detail of each architectural element, the Chapel and its surroundings are a unique venue for your dream wedding. Traditional and inviting, the air-conditioned Chapel seats 250 guests comfortably in solid oak pews and all eyes will be on the wedding party as they gracefully walk down the smooth tiled aisle beneath the cathedral ceilings. Natural light pouring in through the stained glass windows illuminates the Italian marble floors and communion rail, creating a truly magical atmosphere in which to say, “I do.” The surrounding gardens are meticulously landscape and offer idyllic areas to serve as the backdrop to your wedding portraits.
