View All Venues Michigan Outdoor Wedding

An outdoor wedding ceremony is not for everyone. But if traditional weddings are not your style, if you’re one of those unique couples who has your heart set on having your wedding in a relaxed natural setting, the Bengel Wildlife Center is the place for you. Whether in one of our beautiful gardens or on the upper deck overlooking Priggooris Lake, we can provide a wonderful location for a romantic outdoor ceremony.

259 acres of nature are yours to enjoy! Give your wedding guests an "Up North" feel in the heart of mid-Michigan. A rustic, yet elegant setting among woods, ponds, gardens and wetlands. It will be a wedding ceremony to remember.


  • Access to restrooms within the Bengel Wildlife Center
  • Free Parking

Capacity: Dependent upon location

Price: $300 per day


Thank you very much for allowing us to have our special day at such a beautiful location. It was a perfect day and place for us to get married.

And thank you for all your assistance in making our day go smoothly.
