The Roostertail in Detroit Michigan Wedding Photography and Review

The Roostertail is a beautiful setting for wedding photography right on the Detroit river. The main dining room is surrounded by big glass windows allowing lots of natural light to come through. It is also right near downtown Detroit and the Renaissance Center where there are lots of great places to go for photos with the bride and groom. The word “roostertail” typically refers to the spray off a fast boat or a waterskiier and they have beautiful fountains that are lit up at night that shoot jets of water into the air like a huge roostertail.

Here’s the view of downtown Detroit, MI from the back of the Roostertail.

Inside, the main dining room has lots of room and with all the windows, it feels very open and bright.

The central location of the head table was perfect at the setup of this wedding. They were on a raised area where everyone had a clear view of the bride and groom and the wedding party.

Another unique aspect at the Roostertail venue is the dance floor that raises up a few feet during the bride and groom’s first dance.
