The weather in Northern Michigan can be very unpredicable, relax on your big day and don't worry about the weather. We have over 30,000 square feet of indoor space, enough for any wedding!
The Ellison Place even has enough space for an indoor wedding & reception area setup, so you don't have to worry about moving tables & chairs around in the event of inclement weather.
At The Ellison Place we have a huge patio area attached by massive garage style doors, you can either enjoy a fully outdoor wedding, or bring the outside air in by keeping the huge bay doors open.
Whichever configuration you prefer, you can enjoy the beautiful environment of Northern Michigan, while knowing that your guests are comfortably enjoying your special day.
The welcome area of your wedding is often times the first impression you make on your guests. Don't settle for a crowded closet or a small foyer to invite your guests to your special day.
At The Ellison Place there is an extraordinary amount of space and beautiful welcome areas can be designed right as guests walk in, giving them a place to drop their cards & gifts, while feeling welcomed into the event!
Every bride has their own personal preference and every bride has spent hours determining their guest list and table seating assignments.
The Ellison Place can accomodate all of your special requests. Need a long rectangular table setup? We have the space for that. A hundred round tables? We can do that too. You worry about the guest configuration, we have the space to make it work.
Give your guests a place to congregate and mingle during the time between the wedding ceremony and the reception.
This is generally a time for the wedding party and the families to take photos, but the guests are left waiting. The Ellison Place can accommodate large groups in its bar and hors d'oeuvre service area, giving the guests something to enjoy during the in-between time before the reception starts.
Everyone enjoys dancing to celebrate the special wedding, don't make your guests feel crammed and like there is no space to move!
