Weddings may be scheduled at the Bridgeview Gazebo from early May through October. Your rental includes up to two consecutive hours for decorating, rehearsal, wedding ceremony, pictures, and clean-up.
Up to 50 wedding chairs are provided and set up an hour before the scheduled start time. Additional chairs are available for $2.00 a piece if your confirmed guest count is larger than 50, two weeks prior to your event.
A Mackinac State Historic Parks representative is available throughout the ceremony. There is no clergy provided. You must make arrangements with clergy on your own. If the wedding is scheduled AFTER 5:00pm, we can hold Ste. Anne de Michilimackinac as a guaranteed weather backup. There is no weather backup for weddings during operating hours of Colonial Michilimackinac.
If you wish to view the gazebo, please call to schedule a visit. The gazebo is open to the public, and so you may visit without an appointment.
Parking for your guests is available at either Old Mackinac Point Lighthouse or the Visitor’s Center at Colonial Michilimackinac.
