The Stella Maris Parish in Baileys Harbor is situated on top of a hill overlooking Lake Michigan. It is large enough for 275 guests and the mosaic of St. Mary of the Lake above the entrance doors is a stunning piece of its architecture, perfect for those "just married" photos. Here's a bit more information about having a wedding here.
