Large non-church ceremony venue in SE Michigan

My daughter just got engaged and we're struggling to find a ceremony venue.  Neither she nor her fiance are religious, so churches are out.  They're looking at October, 2014.  The place would have to accommodate 200-250 people. They would prefer indoors but would consider outdoors depending on what the backup for bad weather is.   They're open to the reception at the same place but it's not required.  Prefer Ann Arbor area, but open to anything in SE Michigan.  Budget, while not unlimited, isn't a big factor.  Any suggestions?  Thanks so much!

  • The Detroit Yacht Club on Belle Isle does ceremonies and receptions. Their ballroom can accommodate that many guests, too. It is indoor, but they have an outdoor terrace (plus the docks) available if the weather is nice.

  • ConCorde Inn in Clinton Twp - we had over 150 guests at the ceremony and there was plenty of room to spare.  They have a separate promenade area for the ceremony and it's gorgeous.   
  • For ceremony & reception in one location:

    It isn't cheap, but Zingerman's Cornman Farms (restored barn and historical house) will be open in 2014. They are booking dates now.

    If she is connected to U-M, the Michigan League or the Michigan Union Ballroom could work.
