  • Dear Sonshine Barn Family, I wanted to take a moment to thank you all for the amazing job you did on Megan and I’s wedding on 01 August 2020. We could not have been happier with the overall turnout. Sarah did a wonderful job with overall planning, décor, and vendor recommendations, and Amber did an impeccable job with planning, organization, and day of coordination. The amount of detail that Amber put forth on the day of the wedding, definitely impacted the overall success of the night. To keep my group of groomsmen in line and ensure everything went flawless was no easy task, but she was able to handle it perfectly. Between the two, they made the wedding of our dreams a reality. I was very skeptical of moving the reception from inside the barn, to splitting it inside and outside, but your team made it possible to eliminate any doubt that I may have had. The safety precautions that were implemented, as well as the dual reception areas, removed any doubt that our guests he... Read more

  • Sonshine Barn won our hearts over the minute we stepped foot on the property. We are so glad we chose this place to host our wedding. It’s been about 2 months since we got married and people are still constantly talking about how fun our weekend was! We had a great experience with all of the women that worked with us and having a day-of coordinator made our day flow so nicely! We wish we could go back and relive it all one more time.

  • This venue was perfect. The barn, farmhouse, and clubhouse had everything we needed for an amazing wedding weekend. All of our guests raved about how beautiful and fun the venue was too. Not to mention, the staff is wonderful. Veronica did an amazing job with decorations- she captured my vision perfectly and was so nice. Amber was very organized and took so much stress of our shoulders as our “day of coordinator”. She was always available for questions while planning and kept our wedding day going smoothly!

  • This venue is absolutely amazing! We could not have asked for better venue to have our wedding! We loved everything about it! The farmhouse and clubhouse were so convenient, our guests loved the barn and we got multiple compliments saying it was the best wedding they had ever been to! Of course, we could not have done it all if it had not been for Veronica! She went above and beyond to make the weekend exactly what we wanted and we are so grateful for her! I would recommend this venue 1000% of the time!

  • Sonshine Barn was the greatest find in our wedding planning! I happened upon an article in a Northern Michigan magazine and immediately called to schedule a visit. From that first call through our wedding weekend, they have been amazing to work with. The venue is spectacular! The people are amazing, from the cleaning crew to the wedding planners to the family owners! We rented the farmhouse and clubhouse from Wed- Sun, which I would highly recommend. The farmhouse is so charming and has a lovely wrap around porch, beautiful deck/yard, game room, plenty of beds and baths, and can fit the whole family or wedding party! The clubhouse is a great place to have some fun with the pool table, basketball court and video games. We hosted a lovely welcome party on Friday night on the clubhouse/farmhouse decks and yard. The wedding barn is stunning and was so comfortable for our guests. The barn amazingly has heat and air, so it can accommodate any weather issue. The wedding planners in... Read more

  • The MOST AMAZING experience, everything went perfect. We had zero issues on our wedding day. We used all preferred vendors. Sarah was fantastic with the entire process from planning to decorating to executing. I have yet to hear one negative thing or one thing that went wrong from anyone at our wedding (which was large). Best venue!

  • My whole experience with the Sonshine Barn was a dream! Sarah Freeman made my wedding so easy to plan and really gave me a wedding at 18 years old one I have always dreamed of! The venue is absolutely gorgeous perfect summer day for a ceremony outside and then the inside barn reception was stunning! We also rented the Farmhouse which was such an amazing experience to spend with all of your wedding party and family. It really made us all become one big family. I would 10/10 recommend this wedding venue to anyone! All of my guest said it was the most beautiful wedding they have been to and I would have to agree my wedding was a dream come true. I could go on and on about this place and the amazing staff they have but to keep it short, they’re absolutely amazing.

  • Our son & daughter in law were married at Sonshine barn in May 2018. From our first meeting with Veronica, one of their wedding coordinators included with the venue, we knew the owners amd staff @ Sonshine had spent a lot of time and attention making sure their guests would have everything they needed and more. The barn is absolutely amazing, the bridal suite for the bridal party to get ready the day of the wedding is nothing short of elegant, the grounds are breathtaking, the farmhouse included with the package is so beautiful. The clubhouse where the groomsmen can get ready is a perfect distraction for the guys while the ladies are busy getting ready all day!! We were able to rent the air bnb right next door for the groomsmen to stay with us for the weekend so they didn't have the added expense of hotel rooms. You can rent decorations, I cannot say enough about our perfect experience at Sonshine Barn! I promise you will not be sorry you made the choice to venture to beautiful Gaylo... Read more

  • I cannot speak enough about this venue, their staff, and the passion they have for ensuring you have the day you envision/deserve, AND THEN SOME! Aside from marrying the love of my life, hosting our wedding weekend here was one of the best times of my life! Almost a year later (still married btw ;)) and my family and friends still tell us how much they enjoyed everything from our rehearsal BBQ we held at the Farmhouse the night before (almost 150 people!!!!) to the ceremony and reception.I am still so smitten over our experience here, I think you'll find it tough to top Sonshine!Apart from having the entire weekend to get settled, and setup (which is wonderful!) I think the best part about the venue in its entirety is how it can accommodate anyone and everyone in your guest list. The kids spent a ton of time playing basketball and pool in the clubhouse, the farmhouse provided us a place to house out of town guests where they can store their belongings safely with peace of mind and comf...
