Hey! Look at some of the Washtenaw County parks! Also some of the Metroparks as well! There are a few that have nice shelters that you can rent for almost nothing. My Darling Husband and I almost did that, but we ended up opting to rent the Belle Isle Casino instead. I can’t specificlally remember anymore which ones though…  (Which is also dirt cheap, beautiful, and vintage but I wouldn’t really call it rustic ; )  

I also seriously looked at some of the rental options at the Umich Botanical Gardens as well – also seemed super nice, but I’m not sure that’s what you’re looking for. 

Keep in mind, though, that a lot of the cheaper spaces you can rent also means that you have to bring in your own chairs, tables, food, heaters etc. It CAN still save you money, but it won’t necessarily. (For us, it ended up being really worth it but we DIY’ed pretty much everything.)

@jlk2014:  

I was in your same position, and I ended up going with Cobblestone, pretty much for the convienence of it. However, here are some other places I found.

http://www.threecedarsfarm.org/index.asp    as I recall they don’t allow alcohol.

There’s a place called Octagon Barn somewhere too, I don’t have the link handy though.
