Windmill Island Gardens Honored by The Knot as best Wedding Venue

Holland, MI - For the fourth year in a row, Windmill Island Gardens has been named Best Wedding Venue by The Knot Best of Weddings, a special section in The Knot Michigan magazine. Holland's historic Windmill Island Gardens was lauded as a top venue for 2014, continuing a four-year streak and showcasing the Gardens as a venue beloved by hundreds of brides.

"We're so pleased that Windmill Island Gardens has received this award again," said Sally Laukitis, Executive Director of the Holland Visitors Bureau. "Windmill Island Gardens is a beautiful place and an incredible venue for weddings and other special events."

Windmill Island Gardens is a 36-acre park, home to DeZwaan, a 260-year-old working windmill from the Netherlands. The windmill is backdrop to many bridal party photos, but the Island also offers a reception pavilion that seats approximately 200 guests and a beautiful gazebo for wedding ceremonies.  Windmill Island Gardens overflows with more than 100,000 tulips that bloom every spring; thousands of annuals and perennials are in bloom throughout the summer and fall. The Gardens are open to the public, including windmill tours, from April-October each year.
