As a Lake Bluff Preserve wedding photographer, I get chills every time I visit this location. Standing on top of the bluffs while overlooking the expanse of Lake Michigan is truly an experience. A little gem nestled just 45 minutes from Traverse City, Lake Bluff is a private preserve perfect for brides and grooms looking for a scenic, northern Michigan wedding venue.

Ceremony Location

This unique location provides a dramatic northern Ireland feel and is the perfect backdrop for a truly memorable ceremony. Couples can have their ceremony overlooking Lake Michigan from the bluffs and have them and their guests stay in the vacation houses. If you’re looking for a northern Michigan elopement venue, Lake Bluff Preserve is perfect for couples with guest lists of thirty or less.

Photo Location Options

The views from the top of the bluffs are beautiful backdrops for photos on their own. In addition, you will also have access to the Point Betsie Lighthouse, Crystal Lake, Platte Lakes, and Sleeping Bear National Lakeshore.
