Aurora Cellars Event Reviews

Gorgeous, peaceful setting

We held a Celebration of Life event at Aurora in mid-September, and Aurora really did an outstanding job! The venue is stunning, and we were able to be there when the grapes were in full color on the vines – it’s really just a gorgeous, peaceful setting and removed from some of the hustle and bustle of the larger wineries that get swamped with too many people. (Kristi Brown) was superb! Super professional, kind and went out of her way to ensure we had everything we needed. I really can’t say enough about this particular winery – from its delectable red wines (best in Northern Michigan!) to the talented and laid back staff… they’ve really done a great job building a wonderful business. I’ll be back to enjoy the wines and the peaceful atmosphere!

My Wedding Dream Came True

Kristi and Missy made my wedding dreams come true at Aurora Cellars. My husband and I wanted an outdoor, all-in-one place ceremony and reception, and Aurora Cellars delivered that and more. Kristi and Missy both communicated so well, and were always readily available to answer any of millions of questions. If you want beautiful pictures, a great event staff, delicious wine, and a great “bang for your buck” (you literally can stay on the property in the farmhouse) then get married at Aurora Cellars!

Beautiful and Amazing

The best way to sum up my wedding at Aurora Cellars was that it was beyond beautiful and amazing in every way. The support from Kristi and Missy during the whole process was truly great and I felt totally calm going into my day knowing that we had great support from them. Not to mention, the wine and willow tree were spectacular! I cannot recommend this venue enough and I re-live our wedding day here 10x over if I could.

The Most Perfect Venue

Aurora Cellars was the most perfect venue for our wedding, everyone couldn’t stop talking about how beautiful it was, and how good the wine was! Kristi and Missy are the greatest –  I’ve been planning my wedding for two years, and they were SO helpful and kind during the entire process. I seriously couldn’t recommend this venue any more!

Stress-Free Weddings

I’ve been working weddings for 10+ years and have been both a guest and vendor at Aurora Cellars. The property is phenomenal with vineyard views and an awesome ceremony location. The staff is incredibly hospitable and make weddings stress-free.

Recommended Corporate Retreat

The National Writers Series held its annual summer gala at Aurora Cellars in 2021. We could not have asked for a more perfect venue—the tent was spacious and welcoming, the lawn offered room for our guests to spread out, and the vineyard backdrop was absolutely gorgeous. The wine from Aurora Cellars was highly praised by our guests. Working with the Aurora Cellars team was easy and fun, and they went above and beyond to make our event special. I highly recommend Aurora Cellars for any sort of corporate event or retreat. We can’t wait to go back!

Going Above & Beyond

Aurora Cellars goes above and beyond in helping their brides. We booked this venue for our 10.10.2020 wedding because of the willow tree but Kristi made the entire process so easy, I would recommend booking this venue just because of her! This is coming from a Covid bride too! The venue is amazing, the farmhouse where the bride can stay is absolutely gorgeous, and their wine is hands down the best in the area – and I’m from TC so I’ve been to almost all the wineries! You will not regret booking them!

Magical Place to be Married

The venue had us when we saw the beautiful willow tree nestled next to a landscaped brook of water over looking the estates gorgeous vineyard. The tent with concrete floors, twinkle lights and beautiful beaded chandeliers make for a lovely intimate setting for a reception . The team at Aurora is professional, passionate, and responsive. The team, the venue, the cottage for getting ready all make for a magical place to be married.

Organized & Meticulous Staff

We had our wedding for 140 guests at Aurora Cellars Estate and could not be happier with the entire process and how everything turned out! Kristi is the events coordinator at Aurora and she is top-notch. No question or inquiry went unanswered, she was present for every site visit and was truly an expert on not only the venue, but on the entire Leelanau peninsula and local vendors. It’s because of her organization and meticulous planning that our day went over without a hitch!


Unreal Venue

THIS VENUE IS UNREAL AND THE STAFF IS UNBEATABLE! If I had an option to give them more than 5 stars I absolutely would. Throughout the entire process of planning the wedding we had constant contact and support with the Aurora Cellars team. They were able to assist in creating our dream wedding day while also giving us great recommendations for all other vendors needed. Cannot imagine getting married anywhere else, and trust me when I say, you will not be disappointed with anything if you decide to pick Aurora Cellars.

Magical From Start to Finish

It is a picture perfect venue, and Kristi and her crew helped make our day magical from start to finish! We planned our wedding for over a year, and Kristi was so incredibly helpful throughout the entire planning process. She is extremely knowledgeable and always quick to respond and come up with great ideas. If you are considering this as your venue, go with it. You will NOT be disappointed! Highly recommend.

Perfect Venue

A perfect venue for my wedding day. The entire weekend could not have been more seamless. Kristi was always checking in to make sure we had everything we needed at the farm house and the venue itself was well prepared and ready for guests. The entire experience, from choosing the venue to picking out wine, was easy thanks to their amazing communication. I wish I could re-live that weekend at Aurora over and over.
