If I could give them a million stars, I would! Black Star Farms was literally my dream venue. I can’t put into words how much Ingrid and Dustin did to make our day perfect. The wine selection is one of the best in northern Michigan, and the food? PHENOMENAL! Our guests could not stop talking about how it was the best wedding they’d ever been to. Ingrid and Dustin were so helpful and made our vision into a reality; we did a small wedding of around 40 people, and they were able to pull off a feasting table set-up on the back patio that was SO dreamy and SO romantic. If I could re-do my wedding all over, I’d pick Black Star every single time. The pricing is very fair for the level of elegance the venue brings, and the planning process was seamless. Did I also say we literally planned this in LESS than 3 months?! All with the help of an amazing staff. I can’t wait to come back to stay for our anniversary, and I will ALWAYS recommend Black Star to all my friends and family getting married. In fact, I may beg them so I can experience a wedding there again 🙂
I cannot say enough wonderful things about Black Star Farms and the team they have assembled! We chose Black Star Farms because of the beautiful grounds and location but were absolutely blown away by the hospitality and service for our wedding weekend.
We rented out the 10 rooms for our bridal party & parents of the bride and groom. David, the Inn manager, made everyone feel so welcome the entire weekend. Check-in and out was a breeze, even with guests arriving at different times. He was very efficient and allowed early check-in for anyone whose rooms were ready early, which was almost all of them!
Dustin Schaub & Ingrid Olson were absolute ROCKSTARS! From meeting them initially at our catering tasting, throughout the wedding planning, and the entire wedding weekend, these two incredible coordinators were by our side, making things run like clockwork.
Every question you have, they have an answer for. Any snag you run into, they have a fix for it. Any idea you have, they help you execute it beautifully. They both have a great vision for what the wedding day and weekend should look like, and putting my trust in them was the best possible thing I could do for the success of our wedding!
We had about 120 guests, and every single person was raving about the staff, especially the always cheery and attentive Karen! She was a server/bartender/jack of all trades for our rehearsal dinner, wedding, and morning-after brunch.
Our guests were also raving about the catering provided by black star farms. Rehearsal dinner, cocktail hour, dinner, and brunch the next day were absolutely exquisite!
The vendors we worked with for florals, cake, DJ, shuttles, and photography were unanimous in saying that they love working with the team at Black Star Farms when we booked them. This gave me peace of mind because professionals like to work with professionals.
The team at Black Star Farms made wedding planning an absolute breeze and helped us create the most beautiful memories with our closest friends and family members that we will cherish forever.
If you are looking for a great party, beautiful scenery, incredible food, a stress-free wedding day, a passionate wedding planning team, and a one-stop shop for an amazing wedding weekend, please look no further! The entire team is committed to making your wedding exceed your expectations and your entire experience at Black Star Farms one of a kind. I cannot say enough great things about this spectacular team! Thank you, Black Star Farms!
I would recommend Black Star Farms for any event! We had our wedding there in July 2020 and we were so happy with everything. We had a lot of external stress planning a wedding from downstate during Covid, but Dorothy and her team were exceptional. Our small wedding went beautifully – all our guests were blown away by how beautiful and nice it was. All our emails were responded to in a timely fashion and all of our endless questions were handled. Also, the chef went above and beyond to create a meal for me with my specific dietary restrictions (low FODMAP diet- it’s quite limiting) so that I could enjoy the wedding. I cannot say enough good things about them – everyone should get married here! 🙂
My wife and I attended a wedding at Black Star and we had an amazing experience. From the ceremony on the hill, to the dinner (which I had the best beef I’ve ever tasted) and finally to the “Barn” for dancing, it was truly the best wedding I’ve ever attended. The staff was amazing as well. I dare say it was a perfect day.
Dorothy and the entire team at Black Star Farms did an amazing job! They were incredibly flexible and accommodating with the evolving restrictions related to COVID. The wedding turned out beautifully, and we couldn’t have asked for anything better! Great views – ceremony site at the top of the vineyard with a view of West Bay. The food was delicious. The staff was attentive and courteous. Dorothy was so helpful with coordinating vendors, creating the timeline, and making sure the event went smoothly. We had zero-day of stress or worries. Highly recommend
I’m so thankful we decided to have our wedding at Black Star Farms. It’s such a beautiful venue, with a lot of options and a staff that really makes the planning process a whole lot easier. I felt like we were in good hands and taken care of the whole time – a stress-free bride! We loved every second of our day – the food was a hit; LOVE the late-night snacks.
Black Star Farms was a beautiful setting for our wedding. Still, we must say from start to finish, Dorothy DeBlasio went above and beyond, ensuring every detail of our wedding was perfectly accommodated. From our pre-wedding tasting event to ensuring that our toddler flower girls walked down the aisle, she didn’t skip a beat. She was kind, supportive, organized, and a pleasure to deal with every step of the way. If we could give her more than 5 stars, we would! The food was amazing, the venue was beautifully set up, and we honestly can’t say enough – get married here, and you’ll be as over the moon as we are!
I cannot recommend Black Star Farms enough! The venue itself is gorgeous, the food is amazing and locally sourced, and the staff is SO great. Dorothy was great to work with leading up to the wedding and in helping us plan our perfect event. Dustin was so helpful for the weekend on-site. Our guests are raving about how beautiful the wedding was. We are so happy we decided on this venue!
