Wickwood Inn Weddings - Saugatuck

Your Romantic Wedding Begins With Wickwood Inn

Saugatuck is legendary as a wedding destination. Of course it is: Nestled along the rolling dunes between the shores of Lake Michigan and the banks of the Kalamazoo River, a spot where art, wine and a mellow vibe rule the day, the picture-perfect town drips romance. With countless options to plan an unforgettable wedding, we decided to create a primer.

Start your day by waking up in the Wickwood Inn on a Vispring mattress made of hand-tufted British wool. Your morning, a nonstop pamper-fest involving velour terry cloth La Bottega robes, plush Matouk towels, a hot cup of Wickwood’s house blend coffee; and our locally sourced New American breakfast, will set a special-occasion tone for the day.

For your rehearsal dinner, you might consider Bowdie’s Chophouse, a Sinatra-era charmer with a quaint private room and reliably professional service. Or look into the “mini-Versailles” of The Belvedere, boutique inn sitting on more than five acres of beautifully landscaped gardens—the locally sourced ingredients and genteel setting make for an unforgettable private dinner.

We wouldn’t be speaking out of turn by saying that the Wickwood Inn is an ideal location for your reception. Though we are capped at 22 overnight guests, we can hold up to 28 for a cocktail party on our outdoor terrace. On a temperate evening, there is no more bucolic spot in Saugatuck than in our beautifully landscaped gardens, toasting under the twinkly lights of the arbor sanctuary. You can customize the experience to your desires, whether with a customized dinner menu courtesy of chef Rose Duong or a brunch for Wickwood guests.

Photo opportunities abound in Saugatuck. Take your bridal party to Mount Baldhead, hike up the 302-step stairway to heaven, and you’ll have a breathtaking backdrop of Lake Michigan. Or get a romantic shot on the impossibly picturesque Oval Beach nearby.

For the main event—the ceremony itself—there are few sites that make a bigger impression than The Felt Mansion, the century-old former summer home of millionaire inventor Dorr E. Felt. More modern but equally elegant, Ivy House is a polished greenhouse with a lush-yet-bucolic new event space that is quickly becoming a beloved wedding site.

No wedding weekend would be complete, of course, without a farewell brunch. Pumpernickel’s, an irresistible modern spot where the mimosas flow just a couple blocks from the Wickwood, knows its way around everything from a crab cake Benedict to an honest Reuben sandwich. And Pennyroyal Cafe & Provisions, which leans on West Michigan farms for its ingredients, specializes in down-home options like grilled cheese and johnnycakes.
