Whether you’re looking for beachfront views or a rustic barn for your special day, Michigan is full of amazing wedding venues across the state. Not only does the southwest region sit along Lake Michigan, but it’s also home to a variety of beautiful venues for you and your guests. Here are some of our favorite wedding venues in Southwest Michigan that we think you’ll adore.
The Morris Estate
Hospitality is the main focus at The Morris Estate. From your ceremony and reception to lodging for you and guests, this venue does it all. Located along the St. Joseph River, The Morris Estate is a family-owned establishment that provides full service for your wedding day. Their venues are both indoor and outdoor including the chapel, tent, supper club, or river house. You’ll also have access to their exclusive and preferred vendors, specialty rentals, and decor. Lodging is also available at the River House and Red Horse Inn with gorgeous suites and outdoor activities such as onsite massages, a poker table and more!
Blodgett Wedding Barn
For those looking for a more rustic venue for their special day, the Blodgett Wedding Barn is the perfect setting. Located on a 200-acre farm, the barn has been owned by the same family for 20 years. They’ve kept the grounds as original as possible, with Edison-style lighting, the same 40′ doors and more. It also opens up to a beautiful orchard view, but their windowed tents can also be closed if you experience inclement weather on your wedding day. The barn can hold up to 200 guests, along with a dance floor, family gathering room, and suites for both the bride and groom.
Just minutes from St. Joseph and Lake Michigan, Stonegate Manor is “where classic elegance meets country charm”. The estate sits on 27 acres and is made up of both indoor and outdoor spaces including the Fairy Garden, Front Lawn Pergola, and Bridge to Forever. It was also named as the top pick for Wedding Wire’s “Couple’s Choice” award and The Knot’s “Best of” for two years in a row. The manor can hold up to 160 guests, and more if a tent and outdoor dance floor are added. It’s also pet-friendly if you’d like to have your furry friends there too on your special day!
Shadowland on Silver Beach
As its name suggests, Shadowland is located along Silver Beach in Southwest Michigan. Whether you’re planning a destination wedding or already reside nearby, you can create lifelong memories against a beautiful backdrop of sandy beach. Shadowland can accommodate up to 275 guests with tables, audio and visual, lighting and other additions available. Shadowland Catering works with you to create the perfect menu for you and your guests along with a liquor license for all beverages.
