Let me start out by saying that I am a romantic at heart.  I love being able to play a part in your marriage.  This is a multi-million dollar property that the public does not have access to.  Getting married here is one of only a few ways you can experience the 18 acres that surrounds almost a quarter mile of Lake Michigan waterfront, that makes up “Think Outside” Elope Up North.

There are seven (7) separate and different areas on the waterfront where your wedding can take place and there are almost endless ways the wedding can take place in each of those areas.  No two marriages here are ever the same.

There are volumes of reasons to Elope.  Most couples elope here because it is easy, simple, hassle free and cost effective for them.  But, there are still plenty of variables and choices to make even in a small wedding or an elopement.  For that reason we have several wedding packages and options that can be added to most of them.  If you need help figuring the options and if they are available in the weddings package you want please call me.  Here is my cell 906-643-6643.

More couples want to get married on weekends than during the week, so week day weddings are less expensive than weddings on Friday, Saturday or Sunday ceremonies.

Wedding times and dates are reserved only after a deposit has been received.  I am sorry we cannot hold a date without a deposit.
