Want an outside venue feel with the insurance of a roof? The veranda offers stunning views, open air, wonderful staff and the security of ceiling! It's such a classic space that can be dressed up to be black tie, or decked out for a fun party vibe and everything in between!
What an amazing and beautiful venue for SW Michigan brides! This venue overlooks the bluff and you can see gorgeous views of the Lake as well as downtown St. Joseph. The coordinators at The Veranda are professional and we've worked with them for several events in the past.
I have worked with the Veranda on several occasions. Everything is always well organized and beautifully set up. As an officiant, I am able to step and and do my job very comfortably. I can recommend the Veranda to any couple looking for a unique setting for both their ceremony and reception.
