Wedding-in-Leelanau-County-MichiganYou are welcome to host your event at our unique property, Black Star Farms. Whether you are planning a meeting, a small gathering or a big celebration, we have the venue at our Suttons Bay farm to fit your needs.

The Inn boasts a large colonnaded room that can accommodate up to 140 for sit-down dining. Plus, a dance floor can be added. The Inn also has large reception spaces both indoors and out.

Our Tasting Room is available for private after-hours functions and can host your group from 8 to 80.

Hearth & Vine, our vineyard café, can also be selected for your group’s pleasure, especially during the late autumn to late spring months while the café is not open to the public. It seats 22 inside and also has a large flagstone patio for outdoor seating if the weather allows. Its wood-fired oven makes this a welcoming spot.

Planning a small gathering in Traverse City? Our Tasting Room - TASTES - in the Mercato at the Village of Grand Traverse Commons is also an available venue. With a capacity of 50 and sit-down space for 30, this casual spot might be just what you’re looking for. Or, you could choose our Old Mission Tasting Room for groups up to 50.

Our professional staff will walk you through every step, including the decor, catering, and all the small details. Custom labeled wine makes any celebration more festive.

Jill, Kellie, Teddy, and the entire incredible Blackstar staff,
How could we ever adequately express our gratitude for giving us the wedding of our dreams on Sunday?  It was, without question, the most amazing and beautiful day of our lives.  You guys all went so above and beyond to make our vision come true and we truly felt like the most important people in the whole universe on our big day.  I can’t believe you even made pizza happen for us at 12:30 on a Sunday night.  SO AWESOME!!
Our guests keep telling us it was the most gorgeous wedding they’d ever been to and we have to agree (though we may be a little biased!)
Thank you so so so much!! – Kelly and Paul Boone
