Traverse City is a fairy-tale destination for a wedding -- no matter what the season!
Spring brides may opt for a romantic ceremony among the millions of cherry blossoms that flower along the gently rolling hills of Old Mission and Leelanau counties. Or choose a vineyard setting on one of our two world-class wine trails.
Summer is, of course, the perfect time for a one-of-a-kind beach wedding. Ditch the dress shoes for a comfy pair of flip-flops -- or just go barefoot in the sugar sand beach! And you won't find a more beautiful backdrop for your wedding photos than the sapphire blue and deep turquoise waters of Grand Traverse Bay.
Fall brings a riot of yellows, crimson reds, and bright oranges to the hills and valleys in and around Traverse City. Couples might choose a rustic setting in the woods, or enjoy the panoramic views at one of our full-service resorts.
Traverse City becomes a glittering white fairyland in the winter. Gather with friends and family at the historic City Opera House or the Village at Grand Traverse Commons for a memorable ceremony. Then take a sleigh ride with your wedding party and head inside for an elegant and cozy dinner.
Traditional weddings are at home here, too! In the Traverse City area, there are 32 denominations representing more than 100 churches and synagogues -- from tiny country chapels to large, contemporary places of worship. And the area's large array of restaurants and reception spaces ensure you will find the perfect spot for your perfect day.
