I can not say enough about Dustin and Ingrid, and the entire staff. Black Star went beyond for us and made our day very special. I wish we could go back and repeat the entire day. The venue is spectacular and clean. There are so many areas on the property for photos and different portions of the wedding. Our ceremony on top of the vineyard hill overlooking the water and hilltops, the cocktail hour within the Inn, the first look in a cobblestone tree house area, photos with horse barns, and the reception within Pegasus Barn. Love Black Star so much and appreciate the hard work, dedication, and professionalism of all staff members. They make your day so special and go above and beyond to make sure every detail is perfect as they can. I highly recommend Black Star Farms!!!
If I could give them a million stars, I would! Black Star Farms was literally my dream venue. I can’t put into words how much Ingrid and Dustin did to make our day perfect. The wine selection is one of the best in northern Michigan, and the food? PHENOMENAL! Our guests could not stop talking about how it was the best wedding they’d ever been to. Ingrid and Dustin were so helpful and made our vision into a reality; we did a small wedding of around 40 people, and they were able to pull off a feasting table set-up on the back patio that was SO dreamy and SO romantic. If I could re-do my wedding all over, I’d pick Black Star every single time. The pricing is very fair for the level of elegance the venue brings, and the planning process was seamless. Did I also say we literally planned this in LESS than 3 months?! All with the help of an amazing staff. I can’t wait to come back to stay for our anniversary, and I will ALWAYS recommend Black Star to all my friends and family getting married. In fact, I may beg them so I can experience a wedding there again 🙂
I cannot say enough wonderful things about Black Star Farms and the team they have assembled! We chose Black Star Farms because of the beautiful grounds and location, but we were absolutely blown away by the hospitality and service for our wedding weekend.
We rented out the 10 rooms for our bridal party & parents of the bride and groom. David, the Inn manager, made everyone feel so welcome the entire weekend. Check-in and out were a breeze, even with guests arriving at different times. He was very efficient and allowed early check-in for anyone whose rooms were ready early, which was almost all of them!
Dustin Schaub & Ingrid Olson were absolute ROCKSTARS! From meeting them initially at our catering tasting, throughout the wedding planning, and the entire wedding weekend, these two incredible coordinators were by our side, making things run like clockwork.
Every question you have, they have an answer for. Any snag you run into, they have a fix for it. Any idea you have, they help you execute it beautifully. They both have a great vision for what the wedding day and weekend should look like, and putting my trust in them was the best possible thing I could do for the success of our wedding!
We had about 120 guests, and every single person was raving about the staff, especially the always cheery and attentive Karen! She was a server/bartender/jack of all trades for our rehearsal dinner, wedding, and morning-after brunch.
Our guests were also raving about the catering provided by Black Star Farms. Rehearsal dinner, cocktail hour, reception dinner, and brunch the next day were absolutely exquisite!
The vendors we worked with for florals, cake, DJ, shuttles, and photography were unanimous in saying that they love working with the team at Black Star Farms when we booked them. This gave me peace of mind because professionals like to work with professionals.
The team at Black Star Farms made wedding planning an absolute breeze and helped us create the most beautiful memories with our closest friends and family members that we will cherish forever.

I couldn’t afford a wedding planner and really prioritized our venue and food above all, but that never ended up being a problem with Black Star Farms due to their incredible staff, who relieved all stress and coordination. Black Star Farms was not only the best choice for food, drink, entertainment space, and overall atmosphere, their staff, particularly Ingrid and Dustin, are the most helpful of all my vendors! They answered all my questions, even when I had massively long emails with very specific questions. On the day of, I expected to get constant calls from vendors about where to set up or what to do, and Ingrid and Dustin took it all off my hands and allowed me to truly enjoy my wedding. Beyond them, the service staff and Inn staff provided a friendly atmosphere and made each guest feel like the center of attention. I don’t know how they do it every week! I can truly say that Black Star Farms is the best wedding venue in all of Michigan!
Black Star Farms is amazing!! Not only is it the most beautiful wedding venue/winery in Michigan, the service and price were unmatched. Ingrid and Dustin made my daughter’s day better than we could have imagined. And the staff and food were top-notch. All our guests were raving about the venue, food, and service. We are so thankful to everyone at Black Star. I highly recommend Black Star Farms!!! Five Stars plus!!
Our Wedding at Black Star Farms was truly a magical day and experience!! We absolutely loved the fact that we could use different parts of the property for our Big Day! We had the ceremony outside on the breathtaking hill overlooking the vineyards and a glimpse of the water. The cocktail hour had a lovely inside/outside feel in the Arcturos Room. Guests were then treated to a wonderful dinner in the Aquarius Room. Finally, the night ended with dancing and dessert in the Pegasus Barn. Our guests raved about being able to see so many different parts of the Black Star Farms property. The food was also outstanding and not your typical ‘banquet’ meals. The staff the entire day was superb!! Everyone was so great to work with, and we can’t say enough good things about Dustin and Ingrid. They both made the planning process and the day an absolute dream! Black Star Farms also offers so much for the price that it can’t be beat! They also provided a list of preferred vendors who have all worked together and at Black Star for years, which just added to how special and seamless our day was!! If you are thinking about having your wedding at Black Star Farms, DO IT!! It will be one of the truly most magical days of your life!!
Black Star Farms is a 12-out-of-10 venue that I will forever recommend! Not only is the venue absolutely stunning, from the top of the vineyard to the Inn, to the Barn, but the team at Black Star was truly a dream to work with. My husband and I are from Florida, and Black Star was a destination for us. The team worked with us regarding our traveling dates to come visit, held meetings over Zoom, and every time they were so kind, welcoming, and paid attention to every detail and request. Dustin was incredible the week and day of the wedding, our guests raved about how kind he was and how smoothly everything flowed, and his calming energy helped ease any and all of our nerves. Everything was more than we could have dreamed of, and we can’t wait to visit again. 🙂
We absolutely loved having our wedding at Black Star Farms. Dustin and Ingrid were exceptional to work with, and they put in a ton of effort to make our day seamless and as enjoyable as possible. I appreciated that Ingrid and Dustin were always available to answer any questions. The venue itself is gorgeous, and I loved the ability to have the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception on the same property but in different locations. I highly recommend having your wedding at Black Star Farms.
We had our wedding at Black Star Farms this past weekend, and every single expectation was exceeded! We have been planning this day for over two years from four hours away, and the entire BSF team made the process seamless and enjoyable. From the manager of the Inn where our immediate family stayed, to the friendly staff and of course, Dustin Schaub, who helped from the early stages of planning all the way through execution, we were always supported by a helpful and positive team. Their support for the day of was top-notch and could not have run as smoothly without their flexibility and expertise. We placed all our trust in them, and the team at BSF delivered. Thank you to Dustin and the team for creating the most memorable and incredible wedding for us!
My husband and I got married at Black Star Farms this past weekend, and we can’t say enough how amazing everything was. From the staff to the food and everything in between, the staff went above and beyond! We stayed at the inn, and it was such a great experience. The food was so good, and the staff was even better. If I could get married all over again, there I would. Dustin made sure everything was perfect for our special day, and the waitstaff and bartenders were spectacular! All our guests commented on how great everyone was. I would definitely recommend it to anyone getting married!
