If you’re like most girls, you’ve been planning your fairytale wedding since you were little. But one thing you didn’t realize when you were little was just how much work goes into planning that perfect event! The hustle and bustle of your daily routine keeps you busy as it is, and then adding all of the details of wedding planning on top: It can be overwhelming! But, just like your Fairy Godmother, the Innkeepers of Castle in the Country are here to help make every dream come true for your Dream Michigan fairytale wedding!
Our Bed and Breakfast in Michigan has been named “Top Ten Most Romantic Inns” by the largest bed and breakfast directory in the world for good reason, and when you choose one of our three unique and inclusive wedding packages, you can leave the “heavy lifting” to us. We’ll take care of every detail, but follow your wishes to add just the right finishing touches to make it uniquely yours.
“Castle in the Country was the perfect location for our truly intimate wedding. Ruth, Herb, and their team ensured we had the wedding of our dreams. The wonderful Camelot Suite, my beautiful bouquet, groom boutineer, and the cake were all beyond expectation. Our wedding could not have been more perfect!”
- Joel and Dawn Blakesley -”Enchanting Elopement” Wedding Package
The most intimate of our wedding packages is our Enchanting Elopement. Designed for just the bride and groom, this package will make you feel like a princess and her Prince Charming. We’ll take care of your flowers, cake, witnesses, officiate, and photography, and you’ll experience the most romantic ceremony and still be able to show off all the beautiful photos of your private nuptials. Then, after the wedding ceremony, you’ll choose one of our top three favorite restaurants for your first meal as husband as wife. Choose between Salt of the Earth in Fennville, Butch’s in Holland, or Food Dance in Kalamazoo.
For those looking for just a small, intimate gathering we have created our “Just our Closest Few” wedding and reception package. This magical weekday event (Monday- Thursday) for up to 25 people includes all the ceremony details that we offer, and it also provides a Plated Dinner reception following in our Midnight Sky Dining Room. Herb really pulls out all the stops when he creates a reception dinner fit for a Royal family, using local and fresh ingredients and making everything from scratch. Just like our other wedding packages, Ruth will shoot the photography session that is included in the package and send you home with the the raw proofs on a CD or Flash Drive. This lets you decide what photos you like best for your Facebook profile, photo album or digital picture frame! You have full creative control since you own the photos to commemorate your special day.
“We had our wedding & reception here at Castle in the Country and it was beautiful. Our family & friends really enjoyed themselves as well. Our stay after the wedding was wonderful and relaxing… This was the most romantic place that we have stayed in, and we can’t wait to come back. Thank you so much for an unforgettable time.”
