like it had a story to keep telling and it was one full of laughter and love. A place where families would gather and memories could be made. As I looked through the dusty windows into the cluttered mess there was just something about this building and I couldn't shake it. So I decided to pick up my phone and make a call.
For the last two decades I've had the joy of accompanying couples into venues as a representative for them. Making sure to ask the important questions, find the hidden fees and to help compare apples to oranges for them. Now, it's my turn to host you here at The Collins Off Main. It's been a true honor to design a building with so much history and in a way that is guest centered. We have taken the time to think through all of the nuances that you and your guests will encounter and we have crafted the perfect venue for all generations. I'm proud to say that we have grandparents who stay till the end and college roommates from the past still dancing to the latest mix on our dance floor. Each one of our spaces helps to facilitate memories, comfortability and something different for every walk of life. I encourage you to look at how we do things differently and see that we truly have taken our decades of experience and have put it to use for you. So, book a tour today. I can't wait to meet you!
Hi, I'm Amy Collins and I've been at this wedding thing for over 20 years and every minute of it has been as rewarding as challenging.
Wedding venue shopping can be one of the most difficult times during the planning process. So many things to think about and uncover in your discovery of the perfect fit.
Being a Collin's couple is way more than just a one day affair. It's becoming a part of our family. We get to know you in a very special way through our planning process. Inside our private Facebook group you'll get to know other couples and start to create a unique bond. Our Alumni are here to answer questions that are relevant to our venue and carry a lot of value for our soon-to-be brides and grooms.
Taking care of our staff with high wages, w-2 salaries and time off is just one of the ways that we stand out among our peers. Our people make us great and we know that our clients feel the same. This helps us create a very strong team that feels as much ownership in this business as we do.
This is the woman you want on your wedding day and throughout your wedding planning process. As our Lead Planner, Kandi coordinates with vendors regarding venue specific details. She’s the one to discuss timeline management with our couples prior to wedding day. And the one to help our couples stick to their timeline on the day-of, allowing them to experience it all and not miss a beat!
Kandi is truly a jack of all trades! She always seems to have what our couples (and team) needs on hand. With decades of experience in customer service, she is full of valuable knowledge that contributes to the success of a seamless event.
In her free time, Kandi enjoys enjoying nature with her many animals, and making the BEST treats with her daughters.
If you have questions for Kandi, feel free to reach her via email—firstname.lastname@example.org.
Everyone meet our girl, Allison. As our Executive Assistant, Allie is our couples lifeline to The Collins Collective. If you’re booking with us, this is who you can expect to receive your contract from, and who will grant you access to our planning software. Additionally, Allie coordinates with our vendors to ensure they have their contracts and all information related to what to expect in our event space!
Fun fact about Allie—in case you couldn’t see the resemblance—she’s our owners little sister! In her free time, Allie loves to immerse herself in the arts—theatre being her fav! Currently, Allie + her husband are enjoying spending time with their new baby girl. 🍼🧸
So, while you may not see her on the forefront of events this upcoming wedding season, best believe she is behind the scenes making sure all of our couples + vendors are taken care of from the start.
Feel free to reach Allie with any questions via email at email@example.com ✨
Everyone.. meet Jessica! Our Venue Director + your girl for all things design. This smiling face has been with us for over a year now, and is the one behind all the beautiful tablescapes coming your way this season. 🤭
She’s the gal our Off-Main couples will meet with four months before their big day, to talk day-of design details with. And your point of contact for all venue specific + design related questions. Feel free to reach out to Jess via her email—firstname.lastname@example.org—to get your questions answered without having to wait for a meeting.
On her days off, Jess stays busy mom-ing and making magic with her tool belt! Check out her personal design page @styledbyj.smith on Instagram to get a glimpse of her creations.
As the Marketing Director and Event Coordinator, I’m the voice behind your screen! I‘ve been at The Collins for a little over a year now and I’m so happy I stumbled upon this beautiful place! I’m your go-to girl for photo location recommendations and your low-key tour guide on wedding day.
Here’s some things to note about me.
- My brain is mostly made up of music lyrics from the 90’s to now.
- I love to spend my free time dancing + trying out new restaurants.
- I have an unhealthy obsession with slushees + breadsticks.
- I also work for the @tigers + @detroitredwings, so if you’re ever coming to a game let me know!!
Oh. and one more thing. I will 100% cry on your wedding day. I just really love love. And I’m undoubtedly your biggest fan and hype girl.
If you ever have questions, I’m all ears! Reach out to me via email at email@example.com ✨ xoxo
Amy and her staff were wonderful! They literally did everything and I was able to have a stress free day! Amy had all these awesome ideas and I just let her do her thing and everything turned out perfect! All of our guests were so happy and we were even more happy with how it all turned out!
