Wedding Venues

86,500 square feet of indoor and outdoor function space provides ultimate flexibility in selecting the venue for your special day. Whether you envision a Midnight in Paris or a Moroccan Soiree, our wedding staff is practiced at bringing your vision to life.

While we can accommodate wedding parties as large as 500, intimate events for parties as small as five can be as beautifully orchestrated. And, in the case of inclement weather, all outdoor wedding events have alternative indoor function spaces reserved.

The Grand Lobby offers engaged couples an inviting preview of amenities and personalized services offered by Wedding Sales & Services Managers, Kendra Langham and Taylor Salonen and their dedicated on-site team in "I Do—A Wedding Destination Showcase."


For large weddings, Governors' Hall offers more than 20,000 square feet of barrier-free function space with 20-foot ceilings. The stately ballroom can also be divided into many combinations of smaller rooms. An impressive stairway leads guests to the pre-function area that is ideal for a cocktail hour. Governors' Hall can accommodate up to 2,250 people.

The Mackinac Ballroom and Peninsula Ballroom sit on the lower level of the Resort’s main property across from the Tower Ballroom. Both of these spaces are an excellent choice for an intimate reception where you and your closest friends can celebrate your nuptials. Both ballrooms are also a very private location for saying “I Do” and with some help from our Event Design Manager can be transformed into the perfect ceremony space. Each ballroom can accommodate up to 75 guests each for a reception and up to 180 guests each for a ceremony.
