What’s Included

Starry Night Barn Wedding Weekends

 

We are committed to offering clients the time and space to create and experience your wedding.  Here at Starry Night Barn & Studios, clients get the whole place for the whole weekend (and you can add more nights if available too).  There is no rush to set things up and then tear it all down hours later. Couples, their families and friends have the opportunity to fully share their experience and be present.  There is an automatic feeling of calm and peace here, with nearly 30 acres of beautiful, natural grounds of forested hills, fields, grassy knolls, and orchards with just enough landscaping and planning to render a purposeful design without losing the farm feel. It’s gorgeous when it’s raining cats and dogs, when the fog rolls over the hills, when big clouds loom over our giant cottonwoods or when the sun warms the creek and illuminates the barn interior like a cathedral.  We encourage our guests to get out and experience Leelanau County and our local Suttons Bay shops and restaurants. A jaunt to Tandem Ciders is a must (it’s truly just a jaunt in a country-living state of mind) or visit our area trails and beaches to help reset the mind and body.  We’re all about embracing full, unrushed celebrations of love and commitment (and really beautiful and fun barn decor!)
