    Great Experience

    Allison and I had a wonderful experience with having our wedding at Aurora Cellars! Kristi and her team did a great job of making our day so special. Plus they have great wine, so we will be back on our next trip to Traverse City! :)

    Aurora Cellars was the perfect venue for our wedding! They truly went above and beyond my husband and my expectations. Not only is the venue gorgeous, but Kim was great to work with and met our every need. The staff also made sure everything was in tip top shape and was on top of everything from start to finish. And on top of that, we were able to stay in the beautiful farmhouse on the property, which was the perfect place to get ready with my bridal party. I could not have imagined a more beautiful and perfect place to get married and we cannot wait to come back to visit for our anniversary next year! I would recommend this venue to anyone looking to get married in Northern Michigan!

    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.
