Perfect venue for your rustic wedding

We truly could not have had a better venue! We LOVED Iron Fish (as did our guests!) and most importantly Iron Fish really does have the most amazing staff. I had chosen the venue before my groom had seen it and when we went together for the first time a few months before the wedding, the owner and staff were all so excited to learn we were getting married at IFD. Then, working with Taylor was a breeze. We exchanged several emails to settle on the perfect cocktail menu and also had a phone call with her and my day-of coordinator to ensure everything ran smoothly. She was very helpful in securing a room for two of my guests who were new moms and needed space to pump. Taylor was around the entire evening and we felt so well taken care of. I highly, highly recommend getting married at IFD - you won't be disappointed!

Amazing Venue and Event Staff = Best Night Imagineable!

We live downstate, but my parents live in Interlochen, so we visit Iron Fish almost every time we are up - great place to have a drink and enjoy the day/night. When my fianc茅e and I learned we could use the barn for our wedding venue, we were locked in from that very moment. The place is like nothing else - sure there are other barns, but they aren't part of Michigan's first farm distillery!

We had a non-traditional wedding, and everything was done at the distillery/barn. We had a cocktail hour that preceded the ceremony, followed by our ceremony at the on-site spot/altar with seating - very cool, with the reception immediately following in/out of the barn. We had ~120 people, with a tent outside that butted up against the barn, and there was plenty of room (allowed for social distancing). We had a Cordwood BBQ's food truck serving food all night, and Iron Fish was very accommodating with letting them park right outside of the barn. The bar was hopping all night, and everyone was loving the Iron Fish spirits exclusive bar!

When we were planning, we decided on three MUST HAVES: Amazing venue, top-notch bar/cocktails, and a dance floor that didn't stop moving - we checked all of those boxes, and Taylor at Iron Fish helped make sure that happened. I couldn't have imagined a smoother planning process with Taylor. She was very accommodating to all of our requests (within reason, but limitations were shared up front - no open flames/candles, etc.) and the entire night was better than either myself or my fianc茅e could have imagined. Cheers to Taylor and all of the Iron Fish staff! They helped make sure we had the spirits/cocktails we wanted (and plenty of them), the setup we needed, and Taylor personally worked with us on numerous in-person visits, as we wanted to keep seeing the barn/location for planning.

Thank you again to Iron Fish for truly making this the best night ever. If you are looking for a one-of-a-kind venue, look no further!

The BEST Rustic Wedding Venue!

From the beautiful barn itself, to the amazing staff, this venue exceeded our expectations. The owners, wedding coordinator and every single other staff member were so accommodating and helpful. The ceremony site was perfect. The barn was gorgeous lit up at night. The beverages were tasty. The airbnb next door was perfect. Our guests raved about the location and set up. As an event coordinator myself, this was exactly what every bride wants when planning her wedding. We cannot thank the whole Iron Fish Distillery enough for providing such an amazing experience for us for our special day. THANK YOU!
