I know I’m not allowed to have favorites, but this couple and this wedding are right at the top of my list for 2021. If you scroll down below, you will see the most joy-filled couple and a laid back celebration with their closest family and friends. Alayna and Nathan are so well loved and they planned the perfect day! Alayna designed all of the wedding details herself, check them out below! Michillinda Lodge was the perfect location for this couple’s wedding. The wedding party along with all of Alayna and Nathan’s loved ones, got to celebrate all weekend long at this “campy” venue. Guests were able to stay on site in the cozy cabins and enjoy a welcome party along with the wedding day. You cannot beat Michillinda Lodge’s lakefront view. The ceremony space overlooks Lake Michigan and it is the perfect spot for photos. Speaking of which, Ryan Gauper was amazing to work with! If you want a chill photographer who will bring out the best in you to capture all the candids along with dreamy poses, you have to check out Gauper Photo! See more of his work below.

“If you are looking for a day of coordinator… look no further! Emily and her team are simply THE BEST!!! I cannot recommend them highly enough. She had multiple meetings with us leading up to wedding to make sure we had every detail covered. Before meetings we would often feel stressed and behind about wedding planning and after we would meet with Emily we always left feeling SO relieved. Emily is very detail oriented and on-top of things! She handled so many small details, coordinated and communicated with all our vendors, handled last minute changes, and even smoothly handled a day-of catering issue. More than anything our friends and family so appreciated having Emily and her team there so that on our wedding day we could all relax and enjoy and have to stress, set up, clean up, or handle everything in between. Go hire the Best Day Details!!!” – Alayna 6/5/21
Michillinda Lodge is a beautiful spot for a wedding. But they are not very full service so you may want to consider a coordinator! At this particular Michillinda Lodge wedding, we laid linens, moved tables and chairs for the reception and ceremony, monitored the lighting and siding to the tent, set up all decor, cleaned up all used spaces, set the dinnerware, intercepted all vendors, and cued for ceremony along with so much more! Several of our coordinators have run weddings at Michillinda Lodge in the past and we would love to help you out! Reach out today to see if we are free for your date.
