Our experience with The Silo was nothing short of awesome. Sam was very responsive to emails when I had questions. I knew we were on good hands when our wedding day was here. The day was smooth and I couldn't have asked for a better experience and day for our wedding. I would highly recommend them!!!Sent on 12/06/2018

The Silo was the perfect location for our daughters 5/2017 wedding! From the first moment we pulled up to this venue we knew we had found the perfect location. They Alison and Sam were very organized, always welcoming to our many question! Everything was perfect. Sam, the wedding coordinator allowed me, the mother of the bride, to relax and enjoy this very special day. I would highly recommend The Silo.Sent on 06/17/2017

Sam was an absolute dream to work with. She was so helpful, responsive, full of advice, and all around wonderful. Our wedding day was exactly what we wanted and we received so many compliments on the food. We were told it was the best wedding food ever! And it truly is. Everything on our menu was delicious and on point. The only thing I was a little disappointed with was we were told we would have appetizers and drinks waiting for us and the bridal party downstairs while we were waiting to be introduced in to the reception but when we arrived there were no appetizers or drinks. Everything else was beautiful and it all ran so smoothly. We even received a gift card from The Silo in the mail a few days after our wedding for The Grill House which was a really nice touch and we can't wait to use the card for a date night in the future!Sent on 10/10/2016

My name is Samantha but you can call me Sam. I've been with The Silo Banquets and Catering since January 2013.Born and raised in Allegan, I left for 5 years living in the Upper Peninsula where I attended Northern Michigan University (NMU) in Marquette. I graduated in 2011 with a degree in Hospitality Management. While living in Marquette I was the Event Manager and Joes’ Cake Office Manager at the Historic Hotel Landmark Inn. I never thought I would move back home that is until I was offered the position of Banquet Manager here at The Silo. If I had to move home for any reason running events at The Silo Banquets and Catering was the perfect reason. I have since moved into the position of Executive Manager overseeing the entire operation here at The Silo. I am here to help make your planning process as smooth and stress free as possible not only for the Bride and Groom but for their families as well. I have worked with a number of local and out of town Brides and Grooms from all types of back grounds. Here at The Silo you are not just another wedding. You become family and we love to take care of our family. I am confident that you will leave here more than impressed with the level of service myself and my team have to offer. I have been in the business for over 10 years and after planning my own wedding back in 2018 I am a fountain of knowledge and I would love to share that knowledge with you! Congratulations and happy planning!
The Silo Banquet and Catering is a wonderful venue with an outdoor gazebo for your wedding, or if the weather is not great, it could be set up in the Banquet area. The staff is great to word with, delicious food, and have always enjoyed all the weddings that have booked with them. Can highly recommend them for your wedding or next event.
I love working with the professionals at The Silo. They always do a great job for my brides and grooms.
It's always exciting to work at the silo! The grounds are gorgeous, the views from the hall are breathtaking, and the staff is always so helpful and friendly. A true gem!
