Lake view weddings are some of my favorites! Talk about the picture perfect spot for a Michigan wedding—you just can’t beat a wedding on Lake Michigan when it comes to amazing photo opportunities!

This gorgeous wedding in St. Joseph, Michigan was hosted on private property overlooking Lake Michigan, and it offers some serious eye candy. Can you really beat beautiful Lake Michigan as the backdrop for your head table?! If you’re thinking a tented wedding on Lake Michigan may be the right fit for you, read some quick tips for tented weddings, below!

A Few Things to consider when planning a tented wedding in Southwest Michigan:

1) Be sure to ask rental homes if they permit weddings—not all do

2) Consider parking arrangements and the cost of shuttle transportation if needed

3) If you’re having a hard time finding a traditional venue, hosting a tented wedding may be a great solution!

4) You’re literally building your venue, so secure a reputable rental company that specializes in events and consider a professional wedding planner to ensure you’ve remembered all of the logistics!
