The Inside Scoop


FROM THE KNOT EDITORS

The First Look

Located on an old apple orchard, the Apple Blossom Chapel & Gardens in Fennville, Michigan is a bride and groom's dream come true wedding venue. The well-manicured property is overflowing with first-look photo opportunities. There are tall trees, colorful flower gardens and a delightful pond. Couples who choose this property will have the option of getting married indoors or outdoors and then having a reception immediately afterward. With so many packages to choose from, there's something to fit every budget.

The Chapel. To-be-weds who prefer a traditional wedding will love the on-site chapel. The aisle is carpeted with a floral pattern and the window panels are made of beveled glass. The room also has a raised altar area, a white podium for the minister and decorative silk flowers that almost look real.

The Garden. Take advantage of the beauty of the property by saying your "I dos" under the protection of a large domed gazebo. The soothing sound of the pond fountain will rest in the background and there's a stepping stone aisle for the bride to walk down to meet her groom. The surrounding grassy area is wide open and allows for as many as 200 of your closest friends and relatives to watch you wed.

Patio. Couples are welcome to use the patio between the months of May through October. The space is excellent for a cocktail-style reception with a few close friends.

The Lawn. The lawn is quite large and the bride and groom are welcome to rent a tent for a large reception of up to 200 guests. Friends and relatives will love the view of the luscious green grass, the quiet pond and the delightful flowering plants.

What You Should Know

The owners of the property are happy to serve as your wedding coordinators. They will make any vendor recommendations you require and take all steps necessary to see that your dreams come true. The property itself may be booked between the hours of 9 a.m. and 11 p.m. There are a great deal of wedding packages to choose from, however, all of them include the services of a pastor, all of the set-up and take-down of the ceremony chairs and decorations and the trash cleanup. If you don't have any witnesses, two will be supplied for you for a small fee. Dogs are also welcome to join in on the festivities. Rehearsals are scheduled sometime during the week on a Monday through Thursday evening.

Depending on the package you select, you may also choose between using the music system in the chapel or the portable system that can be used down by the gazebo. There are decorations for rent, such as artificial apple blossom branches displayed in a decorative vase, large potted flowers and a set of Boston ferns. Chairs for the reception that are adorned with sashes can be rented, a flower girl basket and ring bearer pillow are easily obtained and twinkling lights can be erected on the dome of the gazebo. A white unity table, cupcake stand and a punch bowl are also available if you need them.

We started our business after we planned our sons garden wedding. The garden gazebo and little white chapel we built overlooking the pond, were constructed while our son was deployed to the middle east. A labor of my love that never was planned to be a business. We strive to make couples wedding day as stress free as possible by handling all of the setup, coordinating and take down of everything in our packages. Our motto: We handle everything so that you can concentrate on what is really important on your wedding day - each other. We would be honored to take care of you.
