    Absolutely LOVED everything about The Veranda @ The Whitcomb. We had our wedding on the rooftop overlooking the lake and the lighthouse. Our reception was in the Veranda itself. My hubby and I were skeptical when we first walked in because it was a senior living community. But once you see the venue itself, and experience the bliss of St. Joseph (the shops, the lakefront, the community, the bars, the rooftob wedding site and the area rooftop restaurants, the sunsets, the vibe and the beauty) it is 100% exceptional! It truly allows everyone to feel the romance of a wedding day. I recommend this venue to anyone and ALL of my guests adored it and have claimed it is the "most beautiful wedding they have ever been to"

    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.
