The state of Michigan is more well known in the Wedding Industry for Barn Venues and Open Fields… However, you have plenty more options than that that are rarely taken advantage of!
Michigan is the state I call home and (in my opinion) is one of the most diverse states in the country.. especially to get married in! To our West, we have miles of rolling sand dunes, lavender fields and light houses. At our center we have quaint Lakes and Ponds around every corner, and some of the tallest pines on earth! To the East we have the booming city of Detroit known for its elegant skyscrapers and beautiful historic architecture. And of course, to the North we have the Mighty Mack, Waterfalls, Mountains and miles of trails to hike!
And since I love my home state so much, lets get to the point of this blog post…
Here’s my List of Coolest Places in Michigan to Get Married:
1. Elope at the top of a Michigan Lighthouse - Yup, lighthouses and more lighthouses… I have seen a couple of elopements done at the top of a lighthouse and quite honestly, I stan MORE. This is such a magical and unique idea! Grab a bnb’ somewhere nearby for the weekend and have your own quaint and quiet mini-getaway. Picture a sweet morning getting ready with your fiancé and then make your way to the top of your hand-picked Michigan Lighthouse while you take in the crazy amazing views and exchange vows with each other in the (literally) closest and most intimate way possible. Most lighthouses have room for 2 people squeezed between the rails around them so you can see how this would (again literally) bring you closer together when exchanging vows. Here’s a list of Michigan Lighthouses you might consider when thinking about getting married at one!
