    If I could give this venue and staff 10 stars I would.

    If I could give this venue and staff 10 stars I would. My husband and I had the pleasure of having our wedding last weekend at Journeyman Distillery and it was unforgettable. It's a beautiful historic and sentimental space, both indoors and outdoors. Not only is Journeyman's Warren Hall gorgeous, the staff is exceptional. The entire planning process, start to finish, was so wonderful. Jasmine handled every question, request and change thrown at her promptly, with a smile on her face and complete composure. She is extremely attentive, responsive, accommodating and she went above and beyond coordinating with my mom and I to oversee all the details. We only had 100 guests, which is quite small for the Warren Hall space, but she provided me with so many great, creative layout options so that our guests would feel part of our intimate ceremony and still have a beautiful flow into reception and celebrating. My husband and I didn't want the night to end. The food and cocktails were amazing, but what made our night so memorable was the service and attention to detail we and our guests received. Special thanks to Angel, who took every ounce/hint of stress off my mom and I day of the wedding. She set up our tables, double checked all the minor details and made me feel so at ease. She is literally a gift from heaven. I have to brag about Rick and his wife Kerry, they are so phenomenal. Kerry treated every single one of our guests with VIP service. Rick made sure we had a fresh cocktail in our hand at all times and that my husband and I ate our dinner while it was warm. He even arranged a plate for us with all of our petite desserts and wedding cake so that we had a chance to taste everything. The bartenders treated each of our guests with the utmost attention and respect, we are still receiving so many compliments from everyone. The whole experience was 10/10. Many thanks to Jasmine and the entire team for making our wedding day so wonderful. Johanna & Bill, thank you for making this such a special place that we can return to and visit for generations to come. ;)

    A Perfect Wedding Destination

    My wife and I recently got married at Journeyman Distillery, and we could not be happier with our decision to have the wedding there! We originally visited Journeyman to try their spirits, eat a meal, and play on the massive putting green. Numerous hours (and drinks) later, we knew Journeyman would be a consistent stop when visiting Michigan. Fast forward a few months and we were engaged and decided we wanted our family and friends to experience this “hidden” gem in SW Michigan!

    The wedding planning process couldn’t have been easier. Rachael and Jasmine guided us through the process with professionalism, patience, and a can-do attitude. They made sure everything was in order well in advance of our big day and worked together with us throughout the planning. The day of the wedding couldn’t have gone smoother. Jasmine was on top of everything before, during, and after the wedding. Rick and the Journeyman staff could not have been friendlier and set the tone for a great evening of celebrating. The food and drinks got rave reviews from all in attendance. Our wedding of 100 was small for Warren Hall, but the ability to set up the room in different ways allowed for the space to still feel intimate while also allowing guests to spread out and be comfortable. The whole experience was top notch, and we couldn’t recommend more highly!
