"What I love about weddings here at Grand Traverse Resort and Spa is that we can customize and accommodate any style. We have done everything from rustic to glitz and glam to simple and elegant weddings. No wedding is too small or too big, whether it's just the two of you at our Beach Club location on the Bay, or 250 guests under the Pavilion we can make your wedding dreams come true."—Liz Brooks, Special Events Manager
Offering memorable on-site amenities and a trove of regional excursions, Grand Traverse Resort and Spa is Michigan's premiere wedding destination. You'll experience a combination of wedding services and unrivaled amenities.
The expert hands of our spa professionals relax brides and attendants with lavish spa treatments and massages, and can fashion perfectly-styled hair and makeup for the bridal party. Groomsmen and guests may choose to enjoy a pre-wedding round of golf on one of our three championship golf courses, a tension-releasing game of tennis, or relaxing whirlpool.
Pristine beaches and exciting water sports are additional options that will make your wedding a memorable getaway for each and every guest. Winter weddings have a special allure with our crackling fireplaces, snow-covered views, and elegant lodge atmosphere. Your wedding guests can also enjoy on-property cross-country skiing, ice-skating or nearby downhill skiing and sleigh rides, plus other winter activities.
We've earned a national reputation as a premier wedding destination not only because of our select on-site amenities, but also our team's attention to detail and expertise in collaborating with various parties, including the bridal couple's parents, wedding planners, and outside vendors chosen by the bride and groom. This teamwork has guided countless themes, visions and exceptional photography to fruition.
A convenient, centrally located Midwest wedding location, Grand Traverse Resort and Spa is easily accessible for all of your wedding guests - only ten minutes by Resort shuttle from Cherry Capital Airport.

The Beer Artist:
Short’s Brewery exemplifies Northern Michigan in ways you can literally taste. Fresh chocolate mint from the river shoreline, local Blue Spruce trees and Michigan cherries are all key ingredients in his microbrews.
