Storybook romance meets rustic, industrial charm at the Packard Proving Grounds for an ideal, one-of-a-kind wedding celebration. The local automotive history site sits atop 17 acres of green lawns and impressive tree lined boulevards, which accentuate the charming buildings with original slate roofs expertly designed by Albert Kahn. Inside the architectural masterpiece, couples may choose to host their ceremony and/or reception in the Lodge Garage with its antique glass garage doors, cement floors, and natural lighting. String holiday lights from the rafters for a warm glow, or request to display up to three classic Packard automobiles as a unique picture backdrop. Instead of the industrial, lounge-like atmosphere of the garage, couples may opt to walk the grassy aisle of a tree-lined boulevard outside, exchange vows under a large black iron gate, or dance the night away in the paved center courtyard. Options are limitless in this romantic and unconventional venue! Visit
