About Dekoven Center

Situated on 10 breathtaking acres overlooking Lake Michigan, DeKoven offers a quaint chapel for religious & civil wedding ceremonies, as well as beautiful grounds for an outdoor ceremony. Our two air conditioned reception halls are just a cobblestone path away, with seating for up to 250 guests.

The DeKoven Center's Team has over 15 years in the Event Coordination business. We are passionate about providing each client with a level of customer service seldom found elsewhere. Our attention to detail, flexibility, and competitive pricing give couples the freedom to plan their day, their way.

Adam has a BFA in Fine Art, and before entering the Events Industry, was a Stylist and Creative Consultant working with noted fashion photographer Greg Kadel and H&M. This creative background is the foundation The DeKoven Center staff uses in coordinating your dream wedding.

"I feel like, in some small way, I am adding to the rich 165 year history of the DeKoven Center with each wedding we host. Creating life long memories for couples to share is what I would call: a dream job."

--Adam Koenig, Event Manager

    I recently got married here in September 2018. I can rave a thousand times over about how beautiful their grounds are. They take good care of their property to ensure they preserve the beauty of these buildings. However, my review will not be concentrated on just how beautiful The Dekoven Center is, but I will focus on how helpful Adam Koenig the event manager was during a very difficult situation. The beginning of the ceremony we were told, what no couple would like to hear on their special day, that our officiant was not going to make it to the ceremony. It was easy to fall into despair in the thought that the day that I had planned for for a year and a half was ruined. However, despite the difficulty and the panic this caused, Adam was able to stay level headed and along with some of our loved ones that sprung to action, were able to achieve what seemed like an impossibility by that point; they go us married!!!! Adam went above and beyond what any event manager is tasked to do on a wedding day. He even helped sweep up the flower petals at the end of the ceremony, which is the task and responsibility of the wedding party. I cannot say how thankful I am to Adam for assisting us on our special day. What makes this place a go to, is that not only is the chapel and grounds absolutely beautiful, but the staff that you work with directly are amazing and are there with any questions, concerns, and are ready to spring into action when things don't go the way you planned, as that was my experience. You cannot go wrong when booking with the TheDekoven Center.
