    Amazing personalized experience from start to finish

    Working with Jeremy and the Jacobs Farm team was hands down the best part of my wedding. They were incredibly accommodating, flexible, and attentive. Everything was amazing. People are still talking about the beautiful setting, incredible food (seriously, Eric is so good at what he does), and the drinks. Couldn’t have dreamed of a better place to get married. I’m so grateful to Jeremy and team for their patience and partnership. If you want to work with the nicest, coolest people, pick Jacobs Farm!

    Micro Wedding Review

    Our wedding at Jacob’s Farm was everything and more I dreamed our special day would be! We were married in the “Cathedral of Trees” which provided the perfect backdrop for our photos. Our reception was in the barn and was absolutely perfect! Jeremy and his staff were amazing and extremely accommodating. Our day went on without a (non-controllable weather) hitch and I owe it to Jeremy and his staff who were prepared for everything! While our wedding only had around 50 guests, the venue can definitely hold much more. This place is GORGEOUS and I cannot recommend it enough! THANK YOU!

    PERFECT Northern Michigan Wedding Venue

    My husband and I got engaged March 2020 and were hoping to get married that summer, but with all of the craziness of COVID we were concerned that planning the wedding of our dreams would be a logistical nightmare. I had been to Jacob's Farm annual summer corn maze before and always loved the vibe...so when I heard they were doing events I reached out. Jeremy, the primary event coordinator for Jacob's, was extremely easy to get in touch with, friendly and flexible about finding a time to meet. From literally THE MINUTE we first met Jeremy and saw the place we knew that would be the spot for us!! Jacob's property is a stunningly gorgeous setting with orchards stretching out in every direction, surrounded by a lush forest of trees. We were married in "the cathedral of trees", which is an area just into the woods that was cleared and leveled by Jacob's staff to create a serene, natural chapel with sunlight streaming through the branches.
    Our wedding day was TRULY perfect, and we could not have asked for a better staff! Jeremy and his event staff at Jacob's work with an impressive combination of laid back flexibility and fast-moving competency....any issues that came up the day of were met swiftly with solutions, allowing us and our family members to enjoy every minute of the day and feel taken care of.
    ****also, they have an INCREDIBLE food and beverage team, led by Eric and Ronan respectively. These guys sat down with us ahead of time and helped us create an awesome menu that fit out budget, not to mention our own signature drinks!

    Jacob's Farm is truly an idyllic and remarkable place to have your wedding. To this day, we have compliments pouring in from all of our guests! We will cherish our day at Jacob's for many years to come!
