    Great Location

    Such a beautiful venue! Entire staff was great with handling everything despite the terrible weather. We ended up having our ceremony in the tent due to wind and rain, but it was cozy and intimate which was great. We stayed at the farmhouse for the weekend and it was absolutely lovely. The vineyard and venue grounds are breathtaking and everyone enjoyed the location. Also received many compliments on the wine!

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.
