Leelanau Wedding Barn open for Biz!

It’s official!  Starry Night Barn & Studios is open for business! The sign is up, we passed inspection and our first wedding is this weekend – can’t wait!  We are thankful to so many folks for helping us get this far – from Leelanau, Traverse City, downstate, Chicago and beyond.  We are still waiting and watching grass grow, moving dirt, woodchips and never-ending piles of barnwood and awaiting the finishing touch of a new silo roof, complete with a rooftop lookout!  But, we are grateful and so in love with this barn!


First Starry Night Event in the Books!

True to our name and honoring the inspiration and talent of Vincent VanGogh, it was truly a magical, starry night.  The community came out in full force to support our Leelanau Montessori and share in “An Evening of Art.”  The collabortative student renditions of the Starry Night were nothing short of amazing (and I was totally outbid!) It was a humbling and fitting honor to start off our first season celebrating with our community and sharing love and support for this school, our teachers and kids.  The barn was a huge hit and sparkled in the clear (and cold and windy) night sky.  It certainly feels good to have saved this big ole Starry Night Barn and we can’t wait to share it again and again as we host weddings and events and just welcome folks to stop by and tour.  Starry Night is a huge old barn, but she is welcoming, warm, and I think, happy.
