The Roostertail is a beautiful setting for a wedding 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 wedding 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.
The main dining room is an amazing room for a wedding reception. It 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.
After the wedding ceremony we headed to downtown Detroit to get some urban style wedding photos using all the fun colored and textured walls in the city. One of the great things about the Roostertail is that it is located within quick driving distance from lots of fun locations for some creative wedding photography.
We love the urban style wedding pictures.
Detroit is full of interesting locations and fun textures and colors that provide an amazing urban landscape.

It was spectacular once the “roostertail” like fountains kicked on at the back of the building on the Detroit river side. This is one of my all time favorite wedding photos.
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.
