The setting was perfect!! Staff was extremely accommodating, easy to work with, and very responsive. Kristi from Aurora was always available and really made sure we had the best experience possible! She had a bottle of wine with a personalized note waiting for us in the farm house. Kristi even went to her house to get a Kitchenaid mixer so that our wedding cake could be made at the farm house the day before the wedding. Everything Aurora includes with their venue we could not find anywhere else. We cannot recommend and praise them enough!Sent on 06/18/2018

We had the most amazing day ever
Aurora is the best place hands down to have a wedding, Kristie, Ava and the rest of the staff literally go above and beyond and they made our wedding day so special. Me and my husband joe keep saying we would relive this day over again and not change a thing! The venue is perfect and so beautiful and the wine is so good! If your indecisive on where you should get married look no further.. this is your place. I am so thankful for everything they did for us to make it such a seamless and beautiful wedding. I have gotten so many compliments from so many people saying this was the most beautiful and fun wedding they have been to, thank you so much aurora cellars for creating so many beautiful memories for us. We also rented out the beautiful cottage on the vineyard and loved it so much and are definitely talking about renting it out again next summer!!!Sent on 08/10/2019

Miracle Under the Willow
The venue had us when we saw the beautiful willow tree nestled next to a landscaped brook of water over looking the estates gorgeous vineyard. The tent with concrete floors, twinkle lights and beautiful beaded chandeliers make for a lovely intimate setting for a reception . The team at Aurora is professional, passionate, and responsive. After a year of planning and every detail thought out with special care , the only thing we could not control was the weather . We had rain (pouring rain) hours before the wedding and back up plans in place to hold ceremony under the tent . Thirty minutes prior to the wedding the sky’s parted and our events planner Miranda from Sincerely Ginger walked in and asked us to make the last call. She said the team from Aurora were drying off every chair !!! Kristi was not going to have us be the first wedding not under the Willow.Sent on 09/11/2019
The team , the venue , the cottage for getting ready make for a magical place to be married .
Aurora Cellars is one of my favorite northern Michigan venues. The rolling vineyards, the romantic weeping willow tree as a ceremony backdrop, the idyllic cottage with well-appointed decor, the cozy bonfire pit, and the charming wooden farm tables included in the site fee make an ideal setting for a beautiful and meaningful wedding weekend. Kim and her team are delightful to work with--very attentive, responsive, organized, and passionate about providing a great experience for their couples and guests. As a wedding planner, I have worked in over fifty venues across two states and this is easily one of the best!
As a Photography and Videography team we (ILE Photography & Video) had the honor of capturing special "One of A Kind" moments at Aurora Cellars Estate in Lake Leelanau, MI. There grounds were immaculate and the scenery was breath taking. The sunsets are very moving and the vineyard is by far one of the most pleasant sights in Michigan. The couple that we were capturing came from the Detroit area just to partake of the Aurora Cellars eye candy and have it apart of their wedding that will last forever. They have super helpful staff that makes sure you have everything that you need and more. As far as venues are concerned Aurora Cellars is top notch and should be considered by anyone looking for an awesome outdoor wedding or event.
