Laura and Jim, Thank you so much. It was our pleasure to be such a part of your wedding day. Congratulations on your marriage, and we wish you many years of love and happiness! God Bless, Kathy Doornbos
This was wonderful, very affordable and just beautiful. Loved it !!
I recommend this chapel to everyone wishing to have an intimate wedding ceremony.
They did an amazing job! They were very accomodating and flexible to what we wanted for our day! She was on top of all our communication always, and she was SO pleasant and informative:).
Kathy is a lovely hostess and incredibly professional! I appreciated her time and dedication to our event very very much.
Apple Blossom Chapel & Gardens is AMAZING!!! It's such a beautiful place and the staff are wonderful!!! They helped me make my special day perfect! In fact, it was like a fairytale dream come true!!! Kathy was so helpful and a pleasure to work with!!! She made all of the planning and preparation painless...she was so reliable and on top of things, all i had to do was tell her what i wanted & then just show up & enjoy my day, i didn't have to worry or stress about anything!!! Words cannot express how extraordinary my experience with Apple Blossom was!!! Everything about it, the people, the place, absolutely GORGEOUS!!! It's a shame that i can only marry my husband once because i would go back to Apple Blossom in a heartbeat!!
On the day of my event it was raining and cold. Kathy and her staff made sure everything went as smoothly as possible with the weather. A few changes were made but overall the venue and event turned out beautiful.
We highly recommend Apple Blossom Chapel for your wedding! From the beginning Kathy was the greatest from organizing to keeping me (the bride) calm. Everyone knew what to do and where to be standing because of Kathys skills. The chapel was perfect! Everything about it was wonderful. The grounds were beautiful! Perfectly manicured, beautiful with flowers and arrangements and very warm and welcoming! I'm still getting great compliments from our guests. The event, our wedding, was a wonderful and magical day. Everything went perfect! Thank you Kathy and Apple Blossom Chapel and Orchard! We will never forget you and how special you made our day!
This was a beautiful place. The photos have turned out great due to the grounds being kept so nice.

We strive to give the very best quality of service we can. Could you please let me know what you were not pleased with regarding our service so that we can correct for future brides? Kathy
We had both our ceremony and reception at Apple Blossom and every one of our guests told us how beautiful the venue was! The pictures were done on site which made things easier and gave us A LOT of options for different photos. Kathy does a great job at helping you with before and on your wedding day!
Apple Blossom is a full service venue which makes planning a breeze! I would recommend them to anyone looking for a garden wedding, or small chapel wedding. Everything is taken care of for you, so it is completely stress free and something you wont have to worry about on the big day. All the details are taken care of for you and Kathy and the staff are very friendly and ready to help with your every wedding ceremony wish!
Kathy is just wonderful! She runs an unbelievable business! She is very attentive to the bride and groom to be sure the big day goes smoothly! I just can't say enough good things about Apple Blossom Chapel & Gardens! I cant imagine getting married anywhere else and we are both so happy we found this little piece of "Heaven"! It's well worth the drive and just minutes from Lake MI to get in beach and sunset pictures! Kathy's daughter Holly is a gem also! I can't thank you both enough!
Kathy (owner) is very sweet and helpful throughout the whole thing.
Apple Blossom Chapel and Gardens is a beautiful place any time of year! Our wedding was outdoors in May, and we loved having the chapel available as a backup in the event it rainy/cold. One less thing to worry about! Kathy is amazing! She is very helpful offering suggestions and options to make your day perfect. Our wedding couldn't have gone any better. It was a wonderful experience, and we would highly recommend Apple Blossom Chapel and Gardens!
Kathy went above and beyond everything that we expected! It was amazing being able to walk into the venue and have everything looking gorgeous and ready to go! I never had to worry about a thing! She always responded to my emails right away and everything ran so smoothly! Would recommend her to anyone!
We had a beautiful intimate wedding with our parents, siblings and our children. There was an awesome double rainbow right before I walked into the chapel...it could not have been anymore perfect!!
A beautiful setting and a warm and flexible staff made our wedding a breeze to plan and a memorable occasion for us and our guests. Apple Blossom's "Instead of the Courthouse" package was a thousand times more romantic and personal and almost as affordable!
My daughter was so excited to have her wedding at this beautiful outdoor facility. The owner was professional and the prices were reasonable.
My Husband and I had a winter wedding at Apple Blossom Chapel & Gardens this past December 23rd. It was PERFECT! Kathy continuously went above and beyond to make our day perfect. If I needed ANYTHING she was right there offering to help. She made things so easy and stress-free that I was able to plan my entire wedding (in Michigan)from over 1,000 miles away in Florida. She offered help in finding a florist, a videographer, a photographer, and even our reception venue. She worked with us on music choice, our vows, and even hand made a beautiful aisle runner for us and sent us home with some homemade fudge...twice! (We're still all raving about the fudge!)
Kathy also saved us a lot of money by offering a rental service for items like flower girl baskets, silk flower petals, aisle runners, and even decorations and their set up. This alone probably saved us hundreds which we would have spent buying all of these items. They were rented to us by Kathy for as little as $5 for some items. It was awesome! :) As far as the pricing goes...you will NOT find a better deal for your money. I spent months shopping around the entire state of Michigan and BY FAR there was no competition. Apple Blossom is you're best bet! Not to mention that the Chapel is perfect and the grounds are beautiful.
Kathy made an extra effort to make the day OUR day and to make it about the BRIDE & GROOM. This did not go unnoticed and was greatly appreciated. Kathy always wanted our input and wanted us to have things the way WE wanted them. She was even kind enough to sneak us in for a couple visits to go over details that were not part of the wedding package. Working with kathy, for me, was like working with someone I had known for years. It was very relaxed, effortless, and a lot of fun!
I really cannot say enough about Kathy and Apple Blossom. I feel overwhelmed when writing these reviews because I know I only have so much room and so many great things to say. Our day was truly perfect. Family couldn't stop saying what a hidden treasure Apple Blossom was and we agree. Whether it's a summer wedding, a winter wedding, an anniversary, a renewal of vows, or any special event for that matter we highly recommend Apple Blossom Chapel & Gardens. Not only will your day be perfect but you will have the opportunity to work with one of the most accomodating, kind, and thoughtful hosts out there. Kathy is so sweet! :)
We will remember the special day that you made possible for the rest of our lives! We love you Kathy! Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I would recomend this venue and Kathy's services to everyone. If you want peace and perfection on your wedding day book early because word is going to spread she should be booked out years in advance!
This is a great place to get married. The costs are a little higher than I would have thought though.
Where do I start! When I started my wedding planning, I was overwhelmed. The first call I made was to Kathy at Apple Blossom Chapel. We set up the appointment to see her facility. Once I saw her chapel and gardens I knew right away that it was the place for me. She handed me a whole packet of materials to help with our wedding planning. Kathy defintely goes above and beyond! Kathy full of energy and an eagerness to help. She is containgous! Her facility is definitely worth checking out!
On my wedding day, Kathy was there overseeing everything. My wedding at her facility was definitely my dream wedding. The gardens, gazebo, fountain are absolutely beautiful. I couldn't imagine getting married anywhere else.
I would recommend this place to anyone who is getting married! She puts a lot of thought and energy into each wedding to make it special for the couple!
I just got married on Saturday and couldn't wait to write reviews about Apple Blossom! Kathy was just unbelievable- the site was absolutely amazing, simply beautiful. She took such great care of us, helped us with everything we could possibly need. She tried her best to accommodate any request we could come up with (although we didn't have any bizarre requests, really) and always came through with a laugh when we were in need. I hope that other brides can discover her and have the wedding of their dreams on her property- it surpassed all of our expectations. All of our guests can't stop talking about how beautiful our wedding site was. My other vendors have commented on how sweet, easy, and what a joy Kathy was to work with. I would recommend a wedding and reception on site to absolutely anyone who is interested in a simple, elegant outdoor event.
We have worked with Kathy for many years and her level of customer service and attention to detail is outstanding! Apple Blossom Chapel and Gardens is a beautiful setting to host your special day.
Apple Blossom Chapel is a gorgeous place for any wedding! Kathy is a pleasure to work with! I would highly recommend Apple Blossom to anyone!
One of the most fabulous places for a garden wedding!
Apple Blossom Chapels is one of the most beautiful and well maintained wedding locations I know.
The white chapel is lovely and charming along with the gorgeous gazebo built on the property.
Kathy takes meticulous care of her beautiful property as you can see in photo's on her web site.
Kathy is an absolute joy to work with and has a great attention to detail and truly cares about making your wedding day a dream come true.
She also really tries to work with the brides with their individual needs, budget and circumstances.
I highly reccomend Kathy and Apple Blossom Chappel as a beautiful and unique location for your wedding.
The Apple Blossom Gardens is a country breath of fresh air in more ways than one - you will love it! From the beautiful grounds - attention to details - to their commitment to the Bride & Groom, Kathy and her staff really know their stuff and are a pleasure to work with. You cannot select a better venue for your outdoor celebration.
What a blessing knowing Kathy and work with her! Kathy is one of the most passionate people weve ever met; she is very detail in everything that she does till last detail. The Apple Blossom Chapel and Gardens is a wonderful place to get married; we would highly recommend the place to all brides who would like to have not only a wedding but a magnificent experience.
