Wedding Testimonials

Happily ever after starts at Grand Traverse Resort and Spa. Whether you are looking for a beach side wedding, a reception under the stars, or an intimate family affair, we can help make your dreams come true. Our staff is dedicated to giving you a unique wedding that you will remember for years to come. Here's what a few of our brides have had to say about their experience:

"My husband and I were married here this June and it was amazing. Our ceremony was held outside under the Yellow Pavilion and our reception was also outside under the plaza tent. The setting was perfect and there were multiple locations available for some beautiful pictures since it is on a very pristine golf course. There Pavilion tent really didn't need any decoration—the yellow glow does it all . We chose this venue because it was affordable, it came with a guaranteed backup space if weather was bad, and we got Liz as a wedding coordinator. It was a one stop shop kind of wedding and it was perfect. Liz worked with us every step of the way and was a joy to work with—she helped me feel at ease during the wedding weekend and is very trustworthy. I can't tell you how impressed i was with the staff who worked our wedding - everyone was friendly and amazing. The night was seamless. The rooms were also amazing. This resort is well oiled machine for weddings and it showed. If you choose this as your venue - you won't be disappointed!" —Alexandra K via TheKnot.com


"Grand Traverse Resort and Spa was so much more beautiful than I could have ever imagined! From the beginning planning stages to the very last detail, Liz Brooks (Special Events Manager) helped me with everything." —Rachel L via TheKnot.com


"My husband and I had our wedding weekend at the Grand Traverse Resort in June. We couldn't have asked for anything better or more beautiful! Liz and the staff did an amazing job to listen to what we wanted and help truly make it our special day!" —Kierstin L via TheKnot.com


 "Grand Traverse Resort did an AMAZING job with our wedding! From the day we booked our wedding at the resort to the last moment we were at the reception, everything went according to plan." —Kara B via TheKnot.com
