Prices and Packages

As only a romanticized thought in 2001
and with meticulous patience,
finally this lush whimsical dream has grown into
exactly what I imagined all those years ago
. . . a magical fairy-tale-like escape
that I'm happy to now share with our community.

"Josh and I looked at other wedding venues
and none of them
have really stuck out to melike yours."

"My fiance and I are going to book
our wedding at your venue.
Your venue is a dream
and there is nowhere else
I would rather book to have my special day."

-- Amanda

Wedding and Vow Renewal overview

As Coldwater Michigan's service oriented outdoor Venue, packages provide basic structural necessities for every Ceremomy and Reception. Mindful this is one of the most important days of your life, my husband and I work very hard all year to help make everything perfect and personally oversee every event.

As my full-time job, I artistically create new venue items through the off-season, making fresh projects for every new season. I consider that photo you'll hang on your wall the rest of your lives as a reminder of your Wedding on my Island to be filled with one-of-a-kind real-life images you've imagined your whole life and won't find anywhere else -- my goal is to help those dreams come true. I remember fairytale princesses being carried off by their knights in shining armour to marry beneath a secret lush private garden exclusively grown for their wedding one day; I've tried to recreate this mental image just for you and your memories which will live on for generations.

Often overwhelming, I assist as you plan and offer area vendors and helpful advice learned from previous Weddings; my goal is for everyone's experience here to be a relaxing and pleasant memory you enjoy talking about, sharing with others for years to come and recommending to others for their weddings.

We wanted to send this note with our last payment
as a Thank You for being so patient with us
and understanding that as two young adults
with a lot going on
that we would hold up our end of the deal.
So thank you so much for sticking with us,
being so helpful,
and just overall wonderful.
You can take pride in knowing
you have literally changed our lives
for the better
and we can never thank you enough.
Much love,

-- Anthony & Lea

This one acre private Island Escape has plenty of room for two gazebos surrounded by continuously-blooming flower gardens to interest your Wedding guests before they retreat inside your Reception tent. Our spacious and well-maintained grounds provide a large calming waterfall, melodious background sounds of huge chimes, peaceful soft grass for walking barefoot, encouraging guests to linger and relax in available chairs while inviting children to laugh and play together. Filled with natural splendor and sounds, we happily share our little hidden-away paradise with delicate butterflies and dragonflies, uninhibited singing birds and occasionally majestic swans or herons. Our normally calm lake is very often treated to a sky painted with an amazing late afternoon sunset or blackened and star-filled after darkness sets in.

In our often cluttered every day life today, when many rarely encounter the quiet peacefulness of the outdoors, how refreshing it is to escape, sit back and absorb this artistry as only nature is able to provide for a few stress-free hours. You are welcome to entertain your most treasured family and friends as you celebrate on our blissful little personal Island.

Our season is from Memorial Day weekend through the end of September; after that, I have a video tour made during the summer so you are able to have an excellent idea of exactly what everything looks like during the wedding season (ask for this video). We limit our number of Weddings per season to protect our Island's beauty and keep our high quality all season long to the very last Wedding.

"On top of their place being
just beautifully amazing,
they are always adding new decor.
Their heart and soul is in this business,
and you can tell
they not only truly enjoy what they do,
but they also care about
the couples booking their wedding with them
and help personalize each couples wedding day.
This is my favorite place to shoot at,
but not just because
it is a beautifully landscaped place on the lake,
but because of the service oriented
business that they run."

I hope to help you achieve your Wedding or Vow Renewal dreams.
