Best Places To Elope In Michigan

  • Mackinac Island. Mackinac Island is known for being car free! That means not only will you have the choice of multiple backdrops for your dream elopement, you’ll also get to walk the beautiful streets and ride in a horse and buggy – giving you that true small town, romantic feel.
  • Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. The name kind of gives it away, but if you’re wanting the picturesque Michigan landscapes, Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore should definitely be at the top of your list.
  • Saugatuck. The perfect place for a little getaway, Saugatuck is known for being close to the dunes, on the great lakes, and full of unique bed and breakfast stays!
  • Downtown Grand Rapids. If you’re wanting those city vibes and urban backdrops, Downtown Grand Rapids has a ton of opportunities!
  • Charlevoix. Anywhere in Charlevoix has the potential for a beautiful elopement! Just like Saugatuck, this area has cozy stays and it’s on the water – plus it’s relatively peaceful yearround.
