No matter if your wedding is large or small, an outdoor wedding surrounded by a beautiful forest is the perfect mix of privacy and elegance. From a hidden manor to sprawling gardens and towering trees, here are some of our favorite forest wedding venues in Michigan.
The MillCreek Wilde
Nestled in the countryside of Southwest Michigan, The MillCreek Wilde is both secluded and romantic. You’ll say your “I do’s” in front of their beautiful fruiting trees, rolling fields, and orchard blossoms while your reception can be hosted in their on-site barn. Reservations are available from May through October on Friday, Saturday and Sundays. Your venue fee will also include a 12-hour rental of the barn, seating, wood bar, free parking, set up and more.
Not only will you be surrounded by beautiful, lush trees at Willowbrook Mill, the venue also overlooks the Northport Marina giving you the best of both worlds. Once your waterfront ceremony is complete, you’ll make your way to its reception hall that sits along a flowing creek leading to Traverse Bay. The venue also includes a double-sided fireplace, large ballroom, lower level patio, and more while you enjoy its rustic elegance.
Double K Estate
Located on nearly 30 acres of sprawling land in Northern Michigan, Double K Estate is a favorite for outdoor weddings. Walk down the aisle with towering trees as your backdrop before your beautiful reception on the lawn. You can also opt for a tented reception as well depending on the weather. Enjoy the rest of the night with your family and friends under the stars, by candlelight or in front of a roaring fire.
Hidden within the woods just outside Battle Creek, Michigan, Greencrest Manor will immediately transport you to a European château. Covered in cascading ivy and surrounded by gardens, the estate offers both single day wedding rentals along with an all-inclusive weekend package for up to 200 guests. Escape the hustle and bustle of city life with its secluded grounds and fresh air while enjoying a stress-free day no matter which package you choose.
