Lodge Wedding Ceremony, Receptions and Additional Services



Indoor Ceremonies

The airy beauty of our wooden gazebo within the 3-story atrium Courtyard sets the stage for classic indoor weddings. Guests enjoy a spectacular wide-angle view of gracefully trimmed lawns and the banks of the peaceful Cass River. For the convenience of your wedding party and guests, our banquet rooms, guestrooms and main lobby are just steps away.

Outdoor Ceremonies

Recite your vows under a decorated lattice arch, surrounded by the natural beauty of our Terrace area, overlooking the Cass River. Alternate space for your ceremony will be reserved should inclement weather require Bavarian Inn Lodge management to move your ceremony indoors.

Wedding Ceremony Packages Include:

  • Sound system
  • Two 9-candle brass candelabras with white tuling and white satin bow
  • One 50-foot aisle runner
  • Center aisle bows of tuling and satin ribbon
  • Gazebo adorned with white silk flower and lush greenery (indoor ceremonies)
  • Lattice arch decorated with white tuling and silk flowers (outdoor ceremonies)

Please note: Wedding Ceremonies are available only to those whose Receptions will be held at the Lodge. To allow you adequate time to greet and seat your guests, the Courtyard pool closes 30 minutes prior to all indoor wedding ceremonies. The pool will remain closed for an additional 30 minutes after your ceremony.

Wedding Testimonials

Our friends were getting married at the Bavarian Inn Lodge. It was a wonderful experience. It was very clean and the staff was very friendly and helpful. It was an absolute pleasure. We will definitely stay again and would recommend it to others. Most impressive was how an actual member of the family that owns the lodge personally welcomed us at the reception and was there to oversee that every thing went well. Class act.
– Sharre W. – Adrian, MI – January 2015

“Wedding Venue” – My husband and I were guests at the Bavarian Inn lodge while attending a wedding reception. The service, venue and food were absolutely first rate. Old fashioned personal service , excellent food and comfortable rooms are hallmarks of the Bavaraian Inn. I would much rather stay here than any big chain hotel!

I would recommend them to families with young children as well as older couples looking for quality and comfort.

We had a beautiful ceremony and reception at the Bavarian Inn. They were very professional and communication was great during all of the planning. All of our guests loved the hotel and many of them made a vacation out of their stay. We were very happy with our Christmas wedding!
