Nestled in the heart of Grape Country is Michigan’s oldest winery, renovated to become one of the area’s most unique places for your wedding ceremony and reception. The Lawton Community Center is built entirely of cobblestone both inside and out and accented with a variety of wine colors and decorations. Guests enjoy touring the Lawton Museum between the wedding and reception while sampling wines from area Wineries. Our museum also offers an ideal setting to your guest for hors d’oeuvres. While guests make the transition into the Main Banquet Room, our Brides and Grooms can take great advantage of our outdoor grounds for unique photographs of their wedding day. After formally being introduced to the guests a lavishly prepared meal from Premier Catering by Desserts Unlimited is served.
Lawton Community Center is a designated State and National Historic Site located in a country setting. This cobblestone winery was renovated by members of the Lawton Community and is owned by the Lawton Lions Club. The Lions Club motto is “We Serve” and the Lions Club took that to heart while undertaking the renovation. During the weekday’s many local youth organizations and senior groups use the facility for meetings and fundraisers. On almost any given Friday and Saturday night, Lawton Community Center is the chosen venue for couples to hold their wedding ceremony and reception.

Ryan and her staff do practically everything for you and it is completely worry-free. She set up and coordinated our wedding perfectly, we had nothing but compliments from our guests. The rustic charm of the venue is amazing and was really just a bonus on top of the great service we received.Sent on 08/05/2015

i cannot say enough about my experience working with Ryan planning my wedding. She was very prompt when responding to emails and if I needed anything she was there for me. She made sure my day was as stress free as possible. I am still blown away with candle display she did for me and it ended up being one of my favorite things. People still rave about the food and how wonderful the whole day was. Ryan and her team were fabulous!Sent on 11/27/2018
A beautiful facility with a staff that is on the ball. Every wedding i have played here has been exceptional.
I can never say enough about the Lawton Heritage Community Center! The building is gorgeous and has a great history, complete with a museum that I never tire of viewing. Numerous options available for your ceremony and/or reception set up. Ryan Kay and her team are the most enthusiastic professionals around. She anticipates a client's needs like no one I know. It is always a pleasure to work there, and my couples have always been extremely pleased with the venue choice.
Great place for your wedding or special event. They get high marks from Floral Creations by Sharon
