Cana Island Lighthouse has been on the shore of Lake Michigan since 1869,and it's one of the only lighthouses in the country where you can climb to the top, get a glorious view of Door County and shout your 'I dos' the world.
Here's what you need to know if you'd like to have a unique Door County Lighthouse Wedding on Cana Island:
Whom You Need to Contact: Please contact the Door County Maritime Museum with the date and time of your event, and expected number of guests and/or participants.
Hours of Operation: Open May through October, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. The Island cannot be closed to the public, and activities must be held outside; the Keepers’ House and Tower are not available for ceremonies, preparations, or in-case-of-rain. All buildings close at 5:00 p.m. and cannot be opened after that time.
If you are planning a very small, stand-up wedding and don’t mind if other Cana visitors observe the ceremony, it may work just fine for you. If you are hoping for a large group and a private ceremony, Cana Island may not be the best choice. Check back next week when I'll share a real wedding held there and also an engagement session!
