As the snowfall gives way to sunshine, we’re already gearing up for the arrival of Spring here at Crystal Gardens! Elegant landscaping work is already underway, with the planting of a variety of stunning flowers and blooms to showcase the beauty of our outdoor spaces. 

Open-Air Chapel Weddings Begin Soon

Along with the arrival of spring comes the opening of our one-of-a-kind open-air chapel, as we host our first chapel wedding of the season on April 7th. We can’t wait to celebrate the bride and groom on their special day, and we’re all hoping for a delightfully warm spring day for their celebration.

Celebrating Prom Season

Starting in May, we’re thrilled to be welcoming prom season, as high schools from across the region will gather at Crystal Gardens for their year-end formal. We’ll be hosting Pinckney, Walled Lake, Catholic Central, Hartland, Howell, Fowlerville, South Lyon, and South Lyon East High Schools this year. 

Our talented Event Coordinator does a remarkable job helping these schools throw the perfect party for their juniors and seniors. And we love to see all of the kids in their beautiful gowns and tuxedos – the glitter is endless and the memories are priceless!
