  • The grounds of Castle Farms are breathtaking! It was a dream! Guests were in awe and the staff was outstanding. Natalie B. was our venue coordinator and she was so sweet! With Covid, Castle Farms was so flexible to changes we had to make. From start to finish (and all the in between) it was perfect! And talk about a picturesque location!

  • My wife and I chose Castle Farms after a weekend of touring venues in northern Michigan. We quickly fell in love with the beauty of the grounds and the friendliness of the staff. Rebekah and Natalie helped us coordinate our special day and we couldnt say enough good things about their help and enthusiasm in ensuring our day went as planned. I would 100% recommend Castle Farms to anyone looking for a venue in Norther Michigan.

    I loved being able to help your dream come true! The joining of two families is one of my favorite things to watch, especially when they have a sand ceremony as fun and colorful as yours. Wishing you and Nick nothing but happiness for the years to come! - Alexandria

  • After hosting our wedding ceremony and reception at Castle Farms, I couldn't have imagined choosing anything different. The site is so beautiful, and the staff is equally amazing. I would recommend this venue to any and every bride!

    I truly hope you enjoyed the rest of your evening. I don’t think I have enough words to say thank you for letting me have the honor to be your wedding coordinator. The day was absolutely beautiful, from the heartfelt décor, and all of your personal touches. You both looked stunning, and your families were a blessing to work with- Dale Henning

  • The venue coordinators are absolutely phenomenal. When I had questions they emailed back within the hour, they verified everything with me every step of the way, and explained everything thoroughly (except the added cleanup cost for the pine needles on the boughs we had brought in; had I known, I would have purchased fake instead of real). They refunded some money for things I had thought I would need and didn’t, and worked well to coordinate with my other vendors.

    Samantha, thank you so much for the review and for sharing those beautiful photos from your special day. It was wonderful working with you on your wedding last December. I will never forget the amazing cake you made and decorated; you are so talented! Your room was also beautiful with the real pine; after discovering its difficulty to clean up, we began to inform couples there may be an extra cleaning fee or that they can bring in faux pine greenery. Happy belated Anniversary and cheers to many more years of marriage! -Brittany

  • Castle farms is one of the most beautiful venues I have ever seen. They worked with us through the whole two years of planning. Even helped my now husband purpose to me. We were even able to split our ceremony and reception up into two rooms so I could have the window in the kings great hall open during our reception. They gave us a day of coordinator - Angela and our day went so smooth because of her. It really was such a magical day. They do everything they can to make your dreams come true!

    Cynthia, you made such a beautiful bride and it was so special to see the love that you and Eric share. I especially enjoyed all your décor references to Mary Poppins and yours and Eric’s own story behind it. We wish you and Eric a lifetime of happiness! -Angela

  • Just the most beautiful place in the world to get married! Not to mention the personal service from every staff member employed there. Our venue coordinator, Angela, was only a call or e-mail away. She was so very attentive, answered every question, and during our big day had everything taken care of before we asked. She made our day go off without a hitch and make it the very best!!!

    Lesli, it was wonderful working with you! It was so beautiful seeing your daughters walk you down the aisle and witness the joining of two amazing families. Thank you both for your service, I was honored to play a small part in your big day. I wish you two many years of happiness! -Angela

  • For the cost of the venue you get a blank slate. I loved I could make the space mine and hire outside caterers, rent my own chairs and tables, etc... It's pricey but our wedding was ours. The high rental price includes a wedding coordinator, which I saw a lot of value in. However, I was coordinating with all our vendors, which we recommended by the venue and it was A LOT. Not only in the months of planning but on our big day. Then, I was extremely disappointed when the microphone ran out of batteries during our vows and nothing was done to remedy the situation. We spent too much money to have things like that go wrong. And when our caterers forgot to put a glass of champagne at every seat or closed one of our two bars by mistake it was my problem. THE BRIDE! Overall, beautiful place but I wish things had gone smoother. I loved our wedding but after all the time and money we put into it, the easily avoidable mistakes still irk me.

  • We had such a phenomenal wedding at Castle Farms! Everything was perfect from the venue. The setup was exactly correct, the coordinator was 100% on top of organization the day of, they accommodated our small extra requests for outdoor lights, patio heaters, lounge furniture setup (which we rented from Taylor Rental). The location is just so beautiful, especially if the weather cooperates. In the event of rain, there is a great pavilion which I'm sure would provide for great photos as well! The biggest plus to Castle Farms however, is their flexibility to allow you to bring your own liquor, beer and caterer. Once you price out your wedding, realize how much expense you save by shopping around on catering and buying your own liquor. Save that huge markup and spend it on what actually gets you something (photographer, DJ, etc)! All-in-all great place to get married. The only critique I would have is that you aren't assigned a "specific" coordinator to work with until 1 month before. In re... Read more

  • I would recommend Castle Farms to anyone wanting to get married in an unforgettable venue. The staff was friendly, Autumn was our coordinator and she was very understanding, flexible, efficient and helpful with getting our day together, letting us know what was okay on the grounds and what wasn't, I would definitely recommend her. Even the sprinkling of rain that happened on our wedding day wasn't enough to dampen the beauty and magic of the space.

    It was such a joy to work with you and your family! The ceremony was so unique and full of love. I truly hope you enjoyed your reception the following day!

  • Castle Farms was absolutely amazing to work with. We did not see it in person prior to our rehearsal, however it was more beautiful than I could have imagined. Autumn, our wedding coordinator, was extremely helpful both leading up to the wedding and the day of. No matter how many questions I asked she was always friendly and made sure everything went smoothly the day of the wedding. You can tell that Castle Farms is very used to holding events and they are excellent at it. Highly recommend!

    Emily, it was so great to work with you and your families. Your son walking you down the aisle was the sweetest thing and it was so cute to see him and Nick greet when you arrived at the altar. I hope you had an amazing time in Costa Rica! -Autumn

  • My husband and I are both local to the area and always dreamed of a Castle Farms wedding. We were thrilled when we booked the venue and happy with things until the day before our wedding. We were told we had the reception area starting the day prior to the wedding for set up/decorations. We had set out favors, wine/beer/liquor and decorations. Throughout our time decorating there were multiple groups of people on "self guided tours" wandering through our reception venue admiring our things. When we went to leave I asked if we could close up the room to protect our belongings but was told that this wasn't possible and it would be open to the public for tours the remainder of the day. If this was communicated to me from the start I would not have put our personal belongings in the room without protection. The day of the wedding we were told we would have a wedding coordinator. Throughout the day there was numerous times that as the bride, I had to call my bridesmaids significant others t... Read more

  • All there is to say is…WOW! My (now) husband and I had the daunting task of planning our wedding from out of state. I traveled to Charlevoix every summer as a kid and I knew I wanted to get married there. Castle Farms really appealed to us because they offer so many amenities and really know how to put on a wedding. We had our wedding in the Knight’s Courtyard and reception in the West Garden Room. Our coordinator was Autumn and she did such a great job of communicating with us via phone and email! Despite it being challenging planning our wedding from Texas, Autumn was very helpful and responsive. On the day of the wedding, everything ran so smoothly! I think one of the best things Castle Farms has to offer is your day-of coordinator and assistants. Autumn made sure our wedding day was perfect in every way. Even when it was threatening to rain, Autumn was so great at giving us options and guidance. Also worth noting, you do have to use Castle Farms’ wine, 1918 Cellars, if you ... Read more
