Zingerman's Cornman Farms is a multi-award winning wedding venue, culinary destination and picturesque farm nestled in the countryside outside of Ann Arbor, Michigan. With sprawling fields, lush gardens and historic buildings set on 27 acres of pastoral beauty, our estate offers a warm and inspiring atmosphere for celebrations of all kinds.

Our Spaces
Whether the wedding of your dreams is indoor or outdoor, intimate or grand, our estate has stunning spaces that will provide the perfect backdrop to your celebrations.

  • The Farmhouse: Our stunning Greek Revival Farmhouse, built in 1834, was redesigned to create the perfect suite of rooms for the modern wedding. The Farmhouse is a warmly welcoming home away from home for your big day. Offering a spacious, serene space with all of the essentail elements for you and your wedding party to get ready, the upper level features a dressing room, lounge area, hair and makeup room and full bathroom. The lower level includes our exhibition kitchen, library with wood-burning fireplace, two gender neutral bathrooms, and adjoining dining and living rooms to welcome your family and wedding party throughout the day.
  • The Red Barn: An American icon, elevated. Our lovingly restored and modernized Red Barn, built in 1837, featured a stunning gabled roof. Nestled into the landscaped grounds, the Red Barn exudes rustic elegance. Features include heating and air-conditioning, wood-burning fireplaces, a built-in bar, elevator and restrooms. The lounge, located on the lower level, features leather seating, a double bar, men's and women's restrooms, fireplace and an outdoor patio. The rustic atmosphere provides an ideal space for cocktail hour, dessert and photos, as well as a getting ready area for the wedding party. The upper level loft features beautiful high ceilings with a gabled roof and large open area for dancing. This space also serves as your alternative ceremony location in inclement weather.
  • The Tent Pavilion: Every Spring we raise our gorgeous, white peak pole Tent Pavilion, adding an immediate sense of grandeur to the property. Nestled into our grounds, the tent features parquet flooring, ambient lighting, and optional windowed sides for an al fresco feel for your reception dinner and toasts.

Services Offered
Our venues offer both bespoke and all-inclusive wedding packages for 2 to 200 guests, always providing exceptional service to the couples hosting their celebrations and ensuring they have everything they need to relax and enjoy their special day. To make each couples’ vision a reality, our professional team of event producers will work closely alongside the couples throughout the planning process.

Catering
In addition to in-house farm-to-table catering for up to 120 guests, our venue works closely with three catering partners: Zingerman’s Roadhouse, Zingerman’s Catering and Events, and Forte Belanger. Our in-house catering team is led by Cornman Farms' executive chef and co-owner, Kieron Hales. Chef Kieron has traveled the globe having lived and cooked in 27 different countries. His posts have included the three star Paul Bocuse in France and Dal Pescatore in Italy, as well as cooking for the British Royal family and three U.S. Presidents.

Location
Just minutes from downtown Ann Arbor, Cornman Farms provides the beauty of the countryside that couples and guests can enjoy as a retreat from the toll of busy schedules. There are plenty of lodging options and local gems for guests to see just ten miles away, and the Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport is only 36 miles away, making traveling doable for all out-of-town loved ones.

    Phenomenal.

    We had an amazing wedding at the farm! We started planning this wedding from across the country before moving to the area. Everyone at the farm is a master of their craft. We were so taken care of.

    They had the fireplaces going (helpful for a mid January wedding), we had the most amazing flowers created by the florist and our photographers (provided through our package) were AMAZING. Check our Adore Wedding Photography (Loren & Mary Beth are a dream team). The best part- the food. We had the meal explained to our guests and it was so special to know the apples were from trees on the property, the kale was from their last batch of the season etc. 10/10 recommend getting married here!

    Also- They use a portal to communicate, make payments and plan the wedding. I never waited more than a few hours for a response. This truly was a one stop shop for me with wedding planning- everything/everyone I wanted to be there to help plan the day were specially picked by their team with no lack of detail or intentionality sacrificed.

    This was a dream. Easiest and most beautiful day. The planning process was easy/fun and had almost no stress surrounding the day. If you’re on the fence, don’t doubt a second longer. This is the place for you.

    Exceptionally Beautiful, Exceptional Service

    How do I even begin to describe the amazing experience that we had hosting an intimate wedding with Cornman? The property is beyond picturesque and the facilities are top notch, but that's pretty obvious through all of the photos. For us, what took the cake was the entire Cornman team. What a group of absolute pros. From inquiry to booking to planning and execution, the team completely exceeded our expectations at every juncture. We booked our day sight unseen, as we planned at short notice due to family member health. We also live across the country from the venue. One might assume that the time crunch would make planning stressful, but with the Cornman team, it was anything but. I genuinely looked forward to our email exchanges, and the team on site coordinated everything on our behalf from afar. On the day of, we felt so taken care of and are now looking back on a day of our dreams, which included the meal of our dreams! The Zingerman's brand is famous for its cuisine and if you're a foodie, this is a dream location to host a wedding!
