5 Michigan Lakeshore Wedding Venues

Is your ‘baby’ graduating high school or college this year? Commencement season is right around the corner and now is a great time to plan the details for this milestone celebration. Never planned a large party at home?

 Alpine Events is here to help with with some planning advice from one of our Sr. Sales Associates, Amanda Wood!

We can all agree the Great Lakes region is home to some of the most beautiful vista views in the country. From Sleeping Bear Dunes (which was voted “America’s Most Beautiful Place” by ABC) down to South Haven, there is an abundance of venue options for those looking to tie the knot on the beach. Today, let’s take a look at just a few of what the Michigan lakeshore has to offer those in search of the perfect venue.

Mission Point Resort

Travel on up to the tip of the mitten and enjoy the wonderful sights of Mackinac Island. Mission Point Resort has the perfect view overlooking the straits of Mackinac. Incorporate your big day with our linens, table settings, and accessories. With spa services, various locations on-site for the ceremony and reception, and a helping hand with wedding vendors, Mission Point will have you covered! 

The Lakehouse Muskegon

Located in Muskegon right on the water you have access to catering, a cozy space, and views. Not only does this venue offer reception packages and size accommodations, but your party attendees can also hit the lake post-reception if they so choose. There is no opportunity better than combining your favorite beachfront accessories and additions to this nearly perfect setting. 

Saugatuck Center for the Arts

If you know a thing or two about this all-inclusive city, you know that it would be amazing for any couple to have their special day here. Enjoy a lively drink and social scene in the city of Saugatuck with the Saugatuck Center for the Arts. If you’re an artsy couple or a lover of the arts, this just might be your spot!
