Why Hold Your Wedding at Cedar Lake Ministries?


Beautiful Grounds

Our staff wants your stay with us to be a memorable one. Free time for your group might be spent lounging on cozy sofas and chairs in front of an inviting fireplace, or taking a moment of reflection surrounded by nature in one of the gazebos or benches…maybe even relaxing on a charming porch swing overlooking the lake. Find a more active recreational outlet with a match on the tennis court or a pick-up game of basketball.

Oaks Dining Hall

Oaks Dining Hall is located on the crest of a hill overlooking beautiful Cedar Lake in Northwest Indiana. The walks and terraces are designed with plenty of vistas for your viewing pleasure. Take a seat in the lower level deck chairs; listen to the waves lapping against the shore or just pause on the winding walkways to reflect.

Torrey Auditorium

Torrey Auditorium is one of the oldest buildings on site. Set just back from the bluff overlooking the lake, it is one of the original Monon Railroad structures.  Renovated in the fall of 2000 with a new foundation, windows, carpet, seating, lighting and sound system, heating and air conditioning, this building is full of history and has been listed on the registry of National Historic Landmarks.

“The location is beautiful–the dining room overlooks the lake, they offer linen service, and the food is incredible. The auditorium where we held the ceremony is also beautiful, with lots of windows that allow natural beauty of the outdoors in. It’s very open and clean and new without being too stiff. It can go towards a more formal or a more casual feel. The staff is easy to work with. Highly recommended.”A Happy Couple
