    A month away from our wedding we had a change in catering for our wedding. Working with Silo banquet & catering was such a smooth process. Sam was so accommodating to help us get what we needed. We had the pasta bar, breadsticks and salad; which we would say are some of the best we have ever had. Definitely would recommend and order again!

    Mackenzie!
    Thank you for the positive review! It was our pleasure, we are so happy you allowed us to be a part of your special day! We wish you and Stephen all the best!

    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!!!

    The Silo Banquets & Catering's reply:

    Heather & Jeremy!

    Thank you for this rave review! I truly enjoyed working with the two of you! You had a beautiful day which complimented your beautiful love story! We wish you and your family all the best!
    -Sam & the entire Silo Staff!

Executive Manager

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.
