Weddings Under the Stars
We want to help you make your dream wedding come true and our unique theater will provide a stellar start to your lives together! Your wedding ceremony can be performed in our darkened theater so you will actually get married "under the stars." Please be aware however, that the theater will be dark during your ceremony and most photography will not be possible.
See wedding guidelines for further information. Contact Garry Beckstrom at email@example.com or 989-667-2270 to schedule a date.
