Wellers is located just outside of downtown Saline, MI. It is a site with lots of historical significance dating back to Henry Ford.
They have a few beautiful outdoor wedding ceremony locations. One is an uncovered location with stone benches for the guests which I personally feel is the most intimate. They also have a 30’x60′ covered pavilion which can also hold weddding ceremonies or be used for an outdoor dance floor later.
One of the most unique aspects of Wellers is their nighttime moonlight wedding ceremonies.
The grounds themselves are spacious and provide ample opportunity for people to stroll and relax.
Dinner can be served at the Carriage House or the Raisin Room. Here are a few photos of the Carriage House at Wellers.
The rooms for dinner at the receptions in the Carriage House or Raisin room are part of the old historic buildings that have a historic charm to them. The rooms are not huge and the decor is a bit dated, but these are old historical buildings so that should be expected. You can still have a very elegant wedding reception there.
Here are a few images showing Wellers’ pavilion on the west grounds being used for an open air dance floor.

With Wellers being so close to downtown Saline, MI, there are some opportunities for taking some more urban style wedding pictures as well.

The moonlight and candlelight weddings can be very intimate and unique. Anyone booking them should fully understand the challenges for photography for a nighttime, candlelit ceremony, but that shouldn’t deter you from doing it because they can be very unique and romantic and provide a wedding experience that nobody will forget.

For the ceremony we did introduce a little bit of additional light to make sure we could capture the event.
I just love candlelight at wedding ceremonies.
The moon!! Unfortunately the moon was behind a cloud during most of the ceremony but it did come out later in the evening.
