Incredible wedding venue!
Our ceremony took place on the first tee of the Woods golf course that overlooks Lake Michigan - ENOUGH SAID! The views during the ceremony were breathtaking. Our reception area in the Main Dining Room of the clubhouse was also spectacularly elegant, with views overlooking the driving range. The entire setting was so impressive, our guests are still raving about it! Aside from the venue itself, Birchwood’s Banquet and Culinary departments were exceptional to work with - very professional and accommodating. The caliber of food quality and presentation for our reception was top notch as well. I can’t say enough about this venue and staff! Highly recommend this wedding venue!Sent on 06/26/2019

I absolutely loved having my wedding here. The wedding planner was so helpful from start to finish! The staff was well organized and made sure to accommodate all of my families dietary needs. My guests were talking about how amazing the food was weeks after my wedding day. I got married on the 1st tee of their golf course which was an amazing experience with a beautiful view. I HIGHLY recommend this wedding venue!Sent on 06/30/2019
