Most incredible venue, EVER!!
We just hosted our fall wedding at Cornman and we cannot express how great it was to work with the Zingerman's team. The staff is absolutely phenomenal and the property is gorgeous. They're 100% committed to making sure you have the wedding of your dreams. We loved how the venue was prepared with things like linens, tables, cutlery etc. because it saved a lot of time and money not to research and rent each item separately. The barn is spectacular on it's own and you could even bypass decorating if you wanted to simplify. Mostly, the staff is completely incredible and helped us plan a day that was uniquely ours without stress or confusion. We couldn't be happier :)Sent on 11/17/2018

Idyllic Michigan wedding venue!
It's no secret that the venue is gorgeous. We were fortunate to have our wedding on a picture-perfect August day, and our guests loved exploring the grounds, playing cornhole, and meeting the baby goats (Fred & Ginger!) But what really sets Cornman Farms apart is the incredible staff. From our very first email, the team was incredibly responsive, infinitely helpful, and worked so hard to make the process as easy and enjoyable as possible. They are a JOY to work with, and everyone is committed to making your wedding unique and stress-free. The majority of our guests were from out of town and they couldn't stop raving about how much they enjoyed this fantastic Michigan venue! We cannot recommend Cornman Farms more highly and we're so grateful to the team for making our wedding so wonderful.Sent on 08/13/2019

A Blissful Intimate Wedding
My husband and I hosted an intimate wedding (26 guests) at Zingerman's Cornman Farms and are just in awe of how easy it was. It is very apparent that each vendor is carefully vetted and that only the best of the best are used for third party services. It was so lovely to be able to minimize the stress of coordinating things like cake, catering, photographer, etc. and just be able to show up knowing that every last detail would be tended to with care and perfectionism. We would choose this venue ten times over, and can only recommend it to others. All of our guests raved about the food and execution, which is a win in our books!Sent on 07/22/2019
