Facilities and Capacity

The historic St. John’s Chapel is a romantic location for a ceremony, capable of seating up to 200 guests (168 on the main level with overflow room for 34 additional guests in the balcony). Outdoor celebrations can be held on DeKoven’s 11 lakefront acres, surrounded by colorful gardens and towering trees around the chapel. The Great Hall offers gorgeous stained glass windows, beamed ceilings, and hardwood floors for up to 225 guests. Receptions are a favorite in this location, due to the beautiful chandelier lighting and custom built-in bar. For couples with a smaller guest list, The Assembly Hall provides room for 150 people, featuring views of Lake Michigan and the inner courtyard. Guests may park on-site at Dekoven, and wheelchair access is also available.

Their dedicated event coordinator is committed to giving couples the wedding ceremony, reception, bridal shower, or engagement party they’ve always dreamed of. From simple events to large, elaborate celebrations, their experience allows couples to run wild with ideas. To help with the more detailed parts of the occasion, the venue also offers rentals for chairs, chair covers, and lighting. A dance floor is included, along with tables, banquet-style chairs, linens, china, flatware, glassware, and even event security! Licensed bartenders are included with your minimum beverage purchase, which is fully customizable with tap and bottled beer, house wine, a variety of rail, premium and top shelf liquors - you can even provide a customized, signature drink for your guests to enjoy!

  • We had our wedding ceremony here. Jenna was our coordinator. She was amazing to work with. She kept me in the loop along the way in regards to what changes were made for their COVID protocol and was very willing to work with us on everything. I highly recommend the DeKoven Center!

    Thank you so much for your kind review, Jeni! It was such a beautiful ceremony, and I'm so glad that you and Brandon were still able to carry out your wedding plans. It was such a pleasure to work with you both! Best wishes!
