I just couldn't understand how it was all going to come together the day of wedding without rehearsal, but Mary and the rest were amazing. They knew what they were doing and they got it done!! Perfect wedding ceremony! Fox photography was amazing too!! Can't wait to see pictures!!!
My wife and I got married 10 years ago at the court house and even though she never complained, I knew that she missed out on the wedding of her dreams.
So I decided to surprise her and booked a wedding package at Victoria for us to renew our vows. The ladies that work there are amazing. They gave me all kinds of referrals for everything we needed to make our day special.
When I went home and told my wife what I did, she cried (happy tears(?) and then booked an appointment at Victoria's bridal store to find a dress and all the girly stuff that goes with it.
A few days before the renewal I went over to their tux shop and picked up my tux.
On the day of, the victoria ladies took care of everything. The music was great, the photographer next door came over (nice girl) and the flowers were delivered ahead of time to make things easier for us.
I also have to give a shout out to the minister! His ceremony was amazing and I will never admit to possibly shedding a tear or two.
Great job, ladies! Thanks so much. I couldn't have done it without you!
The outdoor ceremony location here is admittedly beautiful and the reason that we booked our wedding here but outside of that fact this is an absolutely deplorable excuse for a chapel. The staff is confused, greedy, rude and unprofessional. The hidden fees you've read of are all too real (charges for using outside vendors, charges for having attendants over the age of 6... the list goes on) and the owner herself was the only stressful part of my wedding day, even with family relations that border on the Hatfields and McCoys. I was harassed the DAY OF my wedding about inconsequential details which I had previously called and had approved, details we had settled on months in advance were suddenly unknown to the "professional staff" and I was made to feel like I was crashing my own wedding when I asked to have outdoor pictures taken before the ceremony since I knew that we would be rushed out afterwards. Even my photographer was surprised and disgusted at how poorly I and my husband were treated by these women. I never had a wedding consultant but rather had to work with whomever answered the phone and, apparently, some of them don't know a whit of what they're talking about. When I told them that I had read a very negative review from a customer on their suggested photographer's FB page and would be uncomfortable using that vendor they shrugged it off (the photographer had posted pictures of a client insulting her body and the way that she looked!) and moments later the post was deleted. Just as the review my husband left on their own page was deleted... These women are more concerned with making money and making their job easy for themselves than they will ever be with making a bride on her WEDDING DAY happy in any fashion. I was harassed by the owner while preparing for the ceremony, berated, belittled, called a liar in not so many words and was even treated to photographs with none of my hand-made decorations in them because the employee was tearing them down before the guests were even inside. Directions to the reception, which I very specifically asked to be set out, were lumped on a table with all of our possessions which guests walked past on their way out ... I had asked if my purse would be in a secure location since I was warned they would move my property out of the bride's room during the ceremony. In a pile on a table by the front door is most assuredly NOT secure. Also, despite having a groom's room, they put my husband in the BATHROOM to get ready...WTH? We were treated horribly and would highly recommend to anyone considering using this location to find somewhere else, anywhere else. Michigan is filled with lakes, find another and save yourself being treated like a leper on your own special day. The only part of this company that is exceptional is their ability to hide the fact that they are nothing more than a wedding mill and will go to any extreme to further their own lazy and selfish interests.

Victoria Wedding Chapel was a perfect choice for my wedding. They took care of all of our planning and set us up with a photographer (Fox Portrait Studios). We were very happy with our over the phone information; our visit, consultation, and the amount of time they put into answering our questions.
We had our ceremony inside and took pictures inside and outside on the lake. The consultants are wonderful and the minister was very nice. This was a perfect day, and as a bride, you need to be worry free on this day!
