A few years ago, the City of St. Joseph was named “Michigan’s Most Romantic City” by the Detroit Free Press. Today, it’s a very popular destination not only for weddings and honeymoons, but for Valentine’s Day Weekend. With the 14th landing on a Tuesday this year, it opens bookend weekends (Feb. 10-12 and 17-19) to celebrate with your sweetie. Here are ways to share your love:

The event, which runs from February 3rd through February 5th, is a great way to explore this charming lakeside town and celebrate the winter season.

Bridge Winter Wedding 2

The best thing about a winter wedding is how unpredictably magical your photos can be. There’s nothing quite as beautiful as snow falling around a couple on a wooded path or lights twinkling in the background. Even the lakeshore is transformed as the ice builds up around the pier and off the beach. Southwest Michigan provides unlimited opportunities for capturing these naturally beautiful winter scenes by the lake, in the woods, or even along the twinkling paths of the many quaint downtown cities.
