The Immanuel House of Prayer is a pretty nice venue for wedding photography. It is located on East Grand Boulevard just a block north of Jefferson and the Belle Isle Bridge.
Interior – The church has a nice lobby with grand chandeliers. The church is a large bright room, wider than it is deep with stadium styled seating.
Exterior – The exterior is blue stucco with white and red trim. There are six big white columns at the entrance and steps leading to the front doors. E Grand Boulevard is just a few feet away from the steps so there is not much room for gathering or photography. The steps make a great place for photos of large groups. The church is in a residential and commercial area on a busy street so there is not much in the immediate area for photography
Rooms – There are many rooms for the wedding parties to get ready in the basement. The guys had a series of wood trimmed rooms with bathrooms and mirrors. The girls had a much larger purple room to get ready in. There are many hallways, stairs and mirrors that make for interesting photography opportunities.
Parking and Loading – Parking is either on the street or in the small gravel lot next to the church. Loading is simple if you are able to park near
