The Pine Knob Mansion is a beautiful, old, English manor that is actually located on the highest point of southeastern Michigan, 1221 ft in elevation. The mansion itself is filled with beautiful artwork and sculptures. It is a fantastic place for an intimate wedding. Just outside is a beautiful gazebo with a view looking over some rolling hills…a rare site for southeastern Michigan. Down the hill from the mansion is the Pine Knob Carriage House which has been renovated into a much more modern wedding reception location with lots of big windows and natural light. Ceremonies can also be held just outside the Carriage House under a large covered pavilion. The mansion has an old rustic charm while the carriage house has a more modern and spacious feel to it. Both can be great venues depending on what you are looking for.

We like to take the bride and groom around the grounds and find architectural elements as backgrounds for our photos. The mansion provides more opportunities for this than the Carriage House but both can be unique in different ways.
