The name might be a little cheesy, but this historical property is absolutely stunning for a sunset wedding. While 16 overnight guests can stay at the farmhouse, the rates are reflective for just 4 guests. Separate guest fees of 35 USD plus taxes are applicable for every additional guest on a per-night basis.
Get married surrounded by wildflowers in the garden or in the small backyard. Event tents with glittering lights can also be set in the large yard for a romantic reception dinner.

The best thing about small weddings is that they allow the bride and the groom to spend time with each guest. It also helps to lower the stress levels associated with planning and puts some fun into the event. This destination wedding venue is perfect for the bridal party to stay in and host the wedding from the tree-enclosed lawns. The post-wedding reception can be hosted in luxurious event tents for day ceremonies and under glittering lights for evening ceremonies. The 45-ft (12-m) wrap-around deck is another great spot for a pre-wedding function.

This house dates back to 1876 and is on an 80-ac (32-ha) pristine land. Moreover, it has been upgraded to offer modern amenities without letting go of its old-world charm. You can use the several spots on the grounds for the outdoor ceremony, including the 1900s barn for the reception, followed by some dancing. Couples who wish to use the historical property or the barn for their special day should get in touch with the host to learn about the pricing and additional services that might be provided.
If couples want to stay in Schoolcraft for a few days of countryside living, this property will make for an excellent base to relax after the whirlwind days leading up to the wedding. Additionally, there is ample to do on the property, and several lakes and golf courses are nearby.

If you love the outdoors, you will love this property with expansive multi-level decks that lead down to the lawn. You can also light a bonfire under the shade of a tree. Walk a little further from the tree, and the pond will welcome you. You can use this space to host your beautiful outdoor wedding with your closest and dearest family and friends.
Tables can be set on the deck for a formal dinner, or if you are thinking of a more informal reception, you can arrange picnic tables by the pond instead. Additionally, this property is available for private parties, but remember to contact the host before booking if you wish to have your wedding here.
