For an elegant, elevated affair, look no further than Daxton Hotel in the heart of Birmingham’s downtown district. The hotel, a reflection of the cosmopolitan, energetic spirit of the Birmingham community, has become a premier location for beautiful weddings with unique touches.
This fine art-filled venue pays tribute to tradition with its modernized ballroom called Salon. The space can hold about 260 guests and features a soaring ceiling and a minimalist color palette to provide a backdrop that is refined and caters to the personalities of the bride and groom.
For pre-wedding festivities such as showers, rehearsal dinners, and brunches, its on-site restaurant Madam (our sister magazine Hour Detroit’s Restaurant of the Year 2023) serves farm-to-table fare with a global twist. With rotating local and seasonal catering menus, elegant tableware and linens, a detail-obsessed event staff — plus beverage curator Cosimo Bruno’s specialty cocktails, customized menus, and speakeasy concepts, a wedding at Daxton is sure to impress every guest.
The Parlor’s I and II are ideal for intimate events with plenty of natural light from high windows, and a lounge-like feel. These rooms are ideal for rehearsal dinners, wedding showers, and pre-wedding cocktail hours. Parlor I features edgier, more mysterious décor with dark woods and metals, while Parlor II creates a warm glow with its coral and cream textiles. The two rooms can also be opened and combined to create a larger event space.
For guests and bridal party members who want to stay overnight, Daxton Hotel offers 151 guest rooms, including 21 suites. The onsite’s stylish Geode Bar & Lounge is also a great place to hang out with new and old friends and people-watch through the floor to ceiling windows. Just outside, Old Woodward Avenue offers an abundance of Best of Detroit-winning salons, boutiques, coffee shops, eateries, and movie theaters to visit.
“At Daxton Hotel, we pride ourselves on curating your dream wedding reception or engagement party,” says Brittany Ling, social catering and sales manager. “Our team of experts is ready to create the ultimate event for you and your loved ones, so all you do is show up and make the memories that will last you a lifetime!”
