Special and creative venues to hold weddings are continually being sought. In Michigan, officials of the Port Huron Museum offer the Fort Gratiot lighthouse as an alternate romantic venue. The preservation of the light station’s vintage ambiance, together with modern renovations, makes it an ideal wedding spot, says this feature from the Times Herald.
“Officials want to increase the romance of the Fort Gratiot Light Station.
Susan Bennett, executive director for Port Huron Museum, said a proposal to lower costs for events at the light station — including weddings — will go before the St. Clair County Parks and Recreation Commission Feb. 12 for final approval.
Bennett said the museum wants to attract more events to the site.
The museum opened the light station property to weddings last year. Bennett said officials want to increase the number of events and ceremonies on the property this year by providing more space and lower costs.
County parks and recreation finished renovating the inside of the building in the fall, Bennett said. Crews added an Americans with Disabilities Act-accessible bathroom and door, replaced cement approaches, fixed the heating system and painted, Varty said.
“It is beautiful,” Bennett said. “It was like it was in the ’30s.””
