Venue Review - Kensington Court, Ann Arbor, MI

On May 20th, I had the honor of DJing for Ashley & James's wedding reception at Kensington Court.  I've been here quite a few times in the past, but I've never reviewed this venue so I figured this would be a good time to do so.

Located right off of State Street and I94 in Ann Arbor, it's an easy location for guests to find and perfect for out of state guests needing a place to stay.

If you've ever been to a wedding reception at a hotel before, then you already know what Kensington Court looks like.  It's a little nicer than most, but still very much the same in the ball room.  The decor is nice and and the room looks elegant.

The food is usually very good here, but where they really shine is when they have a cheesecake dessert bar and also their phenomenal coffee bar with all the bells and whistles.  The staff is friendly and very efficient at attending to guest's needs.

The weekend of bad potatoes...

This past weekend was pretty busy.  Thursday was another great night at Bennigan's in Howell.  If you live in Livingston County and you don't already know, I DJ every Thursday from 9-1 for their dollar beer night.  Friday morning I left early for Tappan Middle School's (Ann Arbor) graduation day celebration.  It was pouring down rain and the festivities had to be moved indoors, but I think everyone had a good time regardless.

After the school function, I was off to Canton for Terri and Keith's wedding.  Unfortunately, the rain forced their outdoor wedding indoors.  Their reception was at Summit on the Park in Canton, MI.  The Venue was very nice and the staff were both friendly and professional.  The food was very good with one exception... the potatoes were way over cooked.  Keith (the groom) is in a band called Spy Radio and they played a great set for one hour of the evening.

Saturday came and it was time for a barn wedding.  The Ellis Barn in Oakland County had never hosted a wedding until Saturday.  Sarah & Dennis' wedding was both simple and beautiful.  The unique location created a memorable day for all.  The caterer provided a pig roast with all the sides you'd expect... mac n cheese, baked beans, salad and... potatoes that were pretty much raw and uncooked.  Regardless of the food, both the ceremony (I did the music for it) and the reception were great!
