Marquette Park Pavilion on the shores of Lake Michigan is a beautiful venue. It is so often overlooked by couples. It offers stunning indoor and outdoor venues for a ceremony and reception. It has great parking right by the main hall, thats a huge bonus in my book.
Surrounded by Nature
The natural setting is ideal for wedding photography. It sits on the edge of rolling dunes at the lake shore, surrounded by trees, dunes and water.
The ballroom is huge and can hold up to 250 guests. The natural light from the huge windows is a photographers dream. Add the high ceilings, balcony and columns and its just perfect for receptions.
Marquette Park Pavilion offers a sunken lounge area for cocktails with a bar and room for guests to mingle without bumping over each other.
One of my favorite things about weddings here is the close proximity of the beach for formal photos and sunsets you just cannot get anywhere else. There are concrete paved areas close to the hall for most formals with great views of the lagoon, but adventurous brides can go to the beach in a smaller group, or just as a couple and will be rewarded with amazing backgrounds and sunsets.
