Why You Should Have Your Wedding in #JacksonMI

Why have a wedding in Jackson? My reply, “Why Not?!” 

Jackson has a variety of gorgeous historic churches, beautiful parks, great reception venues, rustic barns, wineries and much more! 

My husband and I were married in Jackson, MI this past summer and I could not have asked for a better day, thanks to everyone who helped us put it together.

We decided to use local companies for our big day and we are so grateful we did. Jackson has an amazing group of wedding vendors to choose from. I highly recommend each wedding vendor we used.


Below is a list of vendors we went with:

Church: First Congressional Church in Jackson, MI; Pastor Kerry is friendly, kind and personable. The church seats up to 500 people and the architecture is stunning!

Reception Hall: Commonwealth Commerce Center was very helpful and attentive to detail, they helped make the reception a success.

DJ Service: Pro DJ they were very helpful, easy to work with, attentive to detail, and had a great music selection.

Local Musician: Ian Stewart played music during dinner and our first dance. He has an amazing voice and he’s great to work with.

Photography: Lindsey Anderson Photography is absolutely lovely to work with; we were given beautiful photos to remember our special day.

Videography: Gerweck Media Productions did a great job videotaping our wedding. 

Cake Decorator: For Goodness Cakes by Heather Watson, she listened intently to requests and made a delicious cake & cupcakes!

Wedding Dress: Brooklyn Bridal had a great selection to choose from, very helpful and supportive, great to work with!

Catering: CCC Catering’s food was delicious, everyone who attended raved about how good the dinner was!

Decorator: Envious Events did a great job decorating the church and reception hall. They have a wide variety to choose from!

Hotel: Fairfield Inn & Suites was clean, comfortable, easy to work with, and has breakfast in the morning for you and your guests! 

Alterations: Jeanne Merrill Alterations did a great job altering my dress. She is wonderful to work with, very kind and extremely helpful!

Florist: Designs by Judy is an amazing florist to work with. They pay great attention to detail along with delivering to the church and receptionist hall. You can even go the day before and look the flowers over to make sure you are happy with them! We highly recommend this company!
