Wedding / Receptions Sites

Tucked into the rolling hills that line the shore of sparkling Lake Superior, it’s hardly surprising that Bayfield offers some of the most scenic and memorable wedding ceremony sites in all of the Midwest. What may surprise you, however, is that this small town offers such a variety of reception sites able to accommodate wedding parties of all sizes and budgets.

Perhaps you’ll choose to have the ceremony conducted in one of our several quaint country churches and chapels, then retire to a cozy little inn or restaurant for a more intimate dinner reception. Planning a larger event? Consider a lakeside setting such as Memorial Park or one of Bayfield’s scenic orchards with the wedding reception taking place at a nearby marina or the historic Lakeside Pavilion. Want something more out-of-the-ordinary? You can get married right on a chartered cruise boat amid the beauty of the surrounding Apostle Islands or hold your reception at an area golf clubhouse overlooking the azure waters of Lake Superior below.

With so many enticing ceremony locations and wedding reception sites in Bayfield and the Apostle Islands, the possibilities are just about endless.


Be sure to visit our sister site, for inspiration, tips and ideas for your own Bayfield wedding!
