Hold your ceremony at the Troy Historic Village

The Troy Historic Village is home to lovely weddings of both intimate indoor ceremonies in Old Troy Church and beautiful outdoor ceremonies on the iconic Gazebo and Village Green. Our wedding package reserves the Village and buildings for a one hour rehearsal and for up to four hours on the wedding day. This provides time for the wedding ceremony to be completed and memories to be captured. To schedule a tour and meet with a Troy Historic Village representative, call 248-524-3571.

Payment Policy for Weddings and Wedding Photography

Reserving the Date:

To reserve your date at the Troy Historic Village for a wedding, the bridal couple or their representative must meet with a Troy Historic Village representative, sign a Wedding Facility Rental Agreement and provide a $200 security deposit. Deposits may be paid by cash, check or credit card. All checks are payable to the Troy Historical Society.

Rental Fees:

  • Church/Indoor Weddings: The Church may be rented out for a wedding. This provides the bridal party use of the site for a one hour rehearsal and up to four hours the day of the wedding. This cost cannot be prorated. The total rental fee is due 60 days before the wedding and may be paid by cash, check, or credit card, payable to the Troy Historical Society. If the Wedding Agreement is signed within 60 days of the event, both the deposit and fee are due at signing. See the link below to view our rental rate schedule.
  • Gazebo/Outdoor Weddings: If your desired wedding is an outdoor event, the Gazebo and Village may be rented for an additional fee over the church cost. This includes the church as back-up in case of inclement weather and the additional scheduling and coordination required by our staff with the bridal party and vendors for rental equipment such as a canopy, chairs, sound systems, etc. See the link below to view our rental rate schedule.
  • Holiday Premiums: There is a premium fee for weddings scheduled within any three-day holiday weekend, including Easter, Memorial Day, the Fourth of July, Labor Day, or the weekend following Thanksgiving and the five days between Christmas and New Year’s Eve. Additional custodial or staff time for holiday events is charged at an hourly rate. (Please note that events are not scheduled on Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve or New Year’s Day).
  • Security Deposit Return: The security deposit will be refunded after the event if no additional charges are incurred. Any custodial service or staff time (beyond the scheduled five total hours) will be charged against the deposit on an hourly basis. The rental party also assumes financial responsibility for any damages to buildings, furnishings, the grounds or artifacts, and these charges will be deducted from the deposit.
  • Other Information:
    • Rental parties who wish to use the Village for a longer event, or who schedule an outdoor reception, are charged an additional fee for each additional hour, including time for set-up and clean-up. Rental parties must use tents and furnishings from approved rental agencies and retain their own caterers.
    • The rental party forfeits the deposit and event fees if the event is cancelled within 59 days of the event.
    • There are no discounts provided to those living or working in the City of Troy.
    • Couples whose wedding is held elsewhere may reserve the Troy Historic Village for a photo session. Please see our Photography Rental Link for details.

General Wedding Policies:

  • We ask that all guests respect the Troy Historic Village as a unique site that preserves history and heritage, and refrain from eating or drinking (except water) in the buildings. The Village and buildings are smoke- and alcohol-free environments. Guests may blow bubbles outdoors, but are asked not to release balloons, throw rice, confetti, flower petals or bird seed.
  • The bridal party should expect to arrive at the Village fully dressed for the wedding, and the Parsonage building used as a holding area only. If a room for dressing is preferred, the Village has a separate room in the main building for the bridal party to change. There is an additional fee for the use of this room.
  • We respect your special event and to that end dedicate the Village to you for your wedding. We therefore do not schedule multiple weddings on the same weekend so that the bridal couple can relax and enjoy their event.
