TRAVERSE CITY WEDDING AND EVENT VENUE
BlueBridge is a beautiful property offering some very unique event venues. In fact, this 10 acre parcel represents some of what makes Northern Michigan one of the most incredible places in the world. But we also want you to know that one of the things that also make us unique is the fact that we don’t just want to serve you on your event day. We hope that the event itself is just the beginning of an ongoing friendship with you. You are always welcome to return to have lunch in the BlueBridge park on a picnic table or under the gazebo, walk the trail down to the water, or sit and have a cup of coffee with us. Once you have an event at BlueBridge, you are a part of our family.
Beyond the beauty of this Traverse City property and the three sites with a distinctive up-north feeling, we offer several things that we believe you’ll find important as you consider the best venue for your big day, whether it’s a wedding or another type of corporate, family or social event.
We are Chris and Stephanie McCrumb and have been married for 21 years. We have five children between the ages of 6 and 19. We have a passion for marriage and family life and we have both been involved in numerous weddings over the years serving as officiant, wedding coordinator, flower and centerpiece designer and decorator. We would be truly honored to partner with you whether it’s for a wedding or any other special life event.
The name BlueBridge was initially inspired by the two small bridges on the property. But the bigger meaning has to do with the fact that we want BlueBridge to be a place of connection just like a bridge connects one place to another. Weddings, company retreats, family events, and so many other events are all ways we connect. BlueBridge is also a wonderful place to connect time through phases of life and big life events and a place to connect the past to a better, brighter future.
Why the color Blue? Because it symbolizes loyalty, calm, peace, and trust that are the pillars upon which BlueBridge is built. When it comes to the really important events of your life, we believe this is the type of environment that you’re looking for and definitely what we are striving to create.
