Not many people can say they got married at a castle, even if it is a replica. Brides could even look into hiring a horse-drawn carriage for a true princess-style walk down the aisle. Exchange your vows on the manicured lawns with the turquoise water of Lake Huron as your backdrop.
The interiors of the castle have been decorated following a palatial style decor and offer a charming escape from the ordinary. Couples can keep the wedding guests list small, and treat their near and dear ones to a couple of days in the country hiking and sightseeing.

It might be rustic on the outside, but the interiors are all warm and cozy. While someone people would love nothing more than planning a large fancy wedding, others would rather plan something small or much rather elope. This cabin surrounded by 83-ac (33.59 ha) of pure country living could be the setting for any wedding adventure you decide on. There are a couple of glamping options on the estate that can be booked together with the cabin for the exclusive use of the property.
Guests should plan on bringing bottled water, as the estate only provides well water and features a rain-water supplied outdoor shower.

The triple-story castle home is a great choice to stay in as well as host the wedding of your dreams. Get in touch with the host if you are looking to host a wedding of 50 or fewer guests, with the venue fee including event tents. While there are several excellent options available for events, it is best to visit the property once before finalizing details.
Past weddings at the property have used the front patio for both the ceremony as well the reception. But couples can switch it up by hosting an event in the landscaped gardens or even an informal luncheon by the barbecue grills. Most importantly the pergola is the perfect setting for the bar.
