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!
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!

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. The bartenders were very quick, friendly, and fun. We got a lot of compliments about the bar, and there was never a long line for it. We heard from so many people throughout the night how awesome the food was! The staff was quick getting it out, and clearing the dirty plates away. All of our guests loved the food and we did as well! It really was a perfect night and we want to thank you very much! We are not from Southfield and everyone kept asking us why we were having our wedding out there. Well after Friday they all know why we had it out there. We got endless compliments about how they loved the venue, they loved the room, and they loved the stain glass windows. There were even a few guests that said they were going to recommend it people they knew who were getting married. We could not be happier with our decision to have our wedding at Shriner’s Silver Garden and we have nothing but great things to say about it. We will be going on all of the wedding websites and giving you rave reviews and definitely recommending your venue to everyone. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our wedding the best day of our lives, and exactly what we wanted! You made one very happy bride & groom! Have a wonderful week!
Amanda & Marc Stankus
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!

Thank you so much! You and your staff were amazing for our wedding. The venue looked even better than we imagined. Your staff was so friendly and helpful. Our guests made many comments about how good the food was and how much they liked the room. Thank you for everything.

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 SilverGarden Events Center. I did send a note to Ann Marie and you to thank you and everyone for their assistance on the night of the wedding, but you got us to that night with no problems. Your suggestions were great about the food and everything else. Thank you again. I will look through the pictures we have and send some along.
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!
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!

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!

Thank you so much you were so kind and patient with us throughout this whole process. We enjoyed everything at the reception this past weekend and thought everything turned out wonderful! 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!
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.

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. One gentlemen in particular, I believe his name was Marcell (?) was just adorable. I met him Friday afternoon while setting up the candy table. On Saturday evening during the reception, he was so helpful and kind. A couple of the ladies whose names I did not catch were also great to work with as well. Family and friends alike complimented the facility and the food. A couple of them went as far to say the Tilapia was outstanding! I have to agree. Although Silver Garden Event Center isn’t exactly next door to our Sterling Heights address, I would not hesitate to recommend your venue along with you and your staff. Thanks again for making our day so special!
Mother of the Bride
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. The food was outstanding and I received many compliments from my guests regarding the food and the service. The wait staff was polite, professional and very attentive, always serving with a smiling face! The package deal I was given was very reasonable and included chair covers w/ sashes saving me so much $$! We held our ceremony and reception in the Mystic Ballroom (they should call it the Magnificent Ballroom). They turned over the room in an hour during our cocktail reception and our guests walked into a transformed room w/ tables ready for dinner! We were able to work with Denise using their on-site lighting truss to hang some of our own lighting to create a breathtaking ambience. The stage set up was perfect for the band and I loved the two tiered set up of the room. I can’t wait to attend or be part of another function at this great facility, a hidden gem. I want to spread the word to everyone to check this place out…you won’t be disappointed!
Mother of the Groom – March 23, 2013
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.

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. 🙂 Upon leaving the staff breaking down the tables & chairs were efficient in their responsibilities. I met Monica when I first entered the lobby in August 2013. Monica was so professional and was the reason that I even decided to take the next step and discuss arrangements with Erin. Erin took time, calculated a quote immediately and we went from there. Your prices were more that fair and compared to other locations, provided much more. Again, thanks to all of you and if & when I decide to throw another bash, I’ll be calling you.
