Brides and grooms from around the state and even the country are choosing Muskegon as their wedding location.
Muskegon has dozens of unique venues for weddings and many with lakefront views. These locations have seen a recent uptick in couples coming to Muskegon to celebrate their vows.
“The majority of the couples, with no family ties here, are coming from the east side of the state. They want to get married along Muskegon’s waterfront,” said Laurel Sass, Watermark 920 General Manager. “We have even had a couple travel from as far as Florida to get married here,” she added.
Ying Woellhaf, Event Coordinator at the Century Club Ballroom said they just had a bride from Detroit who found their venue online and chose Muskegon to have her wedding because of the unique vintage chic space and the friendliness of the vendors in Muskegon.
Darlene Witham, Director of Sales for the Shoreline Inn and Conference Center said, “People are becoming more familiar with the beauty of the water here and we have a growing potential to see the number of destination weddings increase over the next couple years.
