To our prospective Bride and Groom,
Our staff at Waldenwoods Banquet & Conference Center wishes to extend our sincere thank you for your interest in Waldenwoods for your “special day”. Waldenwoods is one of Michigan’s most unique wedding venues, nestled among 400 acres of beautiful rolling countryside and overlooking the scenic shores of a private, spring-fed lake. In a fairy tale setting complete with a 200 foot aisle way and a front porch that is reminiscent of "The Old South", you can step back into time and experience the wedding of your dreams.
When you select Waldenwoods for your special day, you and your guests will experience a blending of the historical feel of a time when life was slow and simple and the present, where quality, convenience and service are paramount. You’ll have no need to worry about hearing the party next door as you will receive exclusive rights to the entire first floor of our 10,000 square foot lodge which can accommodate up to 250 guests. You, your families and your guests will experience the highest level of planning, individualized attention, exceptional cuisine and outstanding guest service.
If you decide to book your wedding with us we can assure you that you, your families and your guests will experience the highest level of planning, individualized attention, exceptional cuisine and outstanding guest service. We realize that each bride and groom have their own dreams for their special day. Please know that we specialize in doing all the “little things” just right. Don’t be afraid to inquire if you have something unique or out of the ordinary in mind.
It is Waldenwoods’ commitment to providing you extra special service on your wedding day. The following services are provided to all of our couples as a courtesy to ensure that your day is a huge success.
- Professional guidance for wedding day timeline of events
- Qualified staff on-site for your wedding day
- Set up of cake table, gift table, guest book table, place card table, unity table and any other specially requested areas. This includes table and linen set-up only.
- Contact vendors one week prior to event to coordinate set up times.
- Preferred vendor list provided. We’ve compiled a list of vendors who are highly recommended by Waldenwoods including: florists, photographers/videographers, DJ’s, bakers, stylists, make-up artists, party rentals, etc.
- Banquet staff in attendance to direct guests from ceremony to reception to ensure smooth transition.
- Waldenwoods staff in attendance to ensure wedding party is gathered and prepared to walk down the aisle.
- Coordination of rehearsal (if held at Waldenwoods).
- Manager available during rehearsal to provide guidance, suggestions, etc.
We would also like to assist you in planning those other events associated with your wedding; bridal shower, rehearsal dinner, and after wedding breakfast (if you take advantage of the overnight lodging available we can arrange a delicious breakfast buffet for your guests the following morning). We offer our brides the following discount on these events: book one extra event and receive a 10% discount on that event, book two extra events and receive a 15% discount off both or book all three events and receive a 20% discount off all three extra events. The savings really add up!
Finally, if your choice is Waldenwoods Resort we will also be extending your special day by giving you a one year Social Membership to the resort (value $750.00). This membership will allow you to continue fond memories of this memorable event for one full year. With this day-use program you will also receive a two night stay at our Historical Sunshine Lodge. You might save this overnight visit for your anniversary weekend. Just think, the memories don’t have to end on your wedding day!
Picture yourself, walking along side the lakeside path hand in hand, enjoying our beautiful sunsets. Perhaps you’d like a mid-afternoon swim on a hot summer day. Keep in shape by hiking our spring fed lake’s three mile waterfront trail or enjoy canoeing across its crystal clear waters. Bring some friends and relax in our Bellringer lounge next to a cozy fire on a cold winter day. We have so many events, and activities to offer, and one whole year for you to participate.
What better way to start out your new life together than being part of our Waldenwoods Family, building your lifetime of memories with each passing day.
Thank you & our very best wishes!

Although we would love to see all the brides that visit Waldenwoods book their weddings with us, we know this is not always possible. Because of this fact, it is not a necessity if you should want to utilize our Bridal Consulting Services.
