We feel like luckiest couple to have had the chance to be married at Apple Blossom Resort. We had a vision of having an intimate, small, family wedding where everyone could spend the entire weekend together in a location that was relatively easy to get to (from family both in-state and out-of-state), and provided us with an intimate but modern space. As soon we learned about Apple Blossom, we knew it was perfect!

Christine -October 2019

This was, above and beyond, the most spectacular and memorable weekend my family has ever experienced. The Apple Blossom has it all..and then some! We rented the property for a 3-day family reunion/wedding celebration. All 30-35 houseguests staying on the property for the weekend were ‘over the moon’ with the immaculate facilities, not to mention the impeccable service-level from the property owners, Meg & Jorge.

Beth -May 2019

We couldn't be happier with our stay at Apple Blossom. It was a great setting for us to have our smaller wedding. We had a beautiful outdoor space for dinner, dancing, and drinks. Throughout our stay guests were able to enjoy the relaxing pool and hot tub, play tennis or basketball, and warm up by the fire pits at night. The rooms and common areas inside were also very well done, spacious and comfortable for everyone. Everyday was a fun and unique experience at Apple Blossom.

Kate -May 2019

The Apple Blossom property is a hidden modern gem in Union Pier, near New Buffalo, MI. My husband and I booked the property for our small, intimate wedding and we could not have been happier with our choice. All guests who attended stayed on site – enjoying the beautiful bedrooms with on suite bathrooms (main house), gorgeous chefs kitchen, multiple fire pits, heated pool, hot tubs, tennis/basketball courts and beautiful surroundings (which made for beautiful pictures!).
