Barn 1888 offers a Picturesque, Rustic and Elegant Experience
About Barn 1888
The former dairy farm turned wedding venue is a breath of country charm and perfection. Owners, Danielle and Bryan, have made it their mission to, “leave as much rustic and antique as possible”, while maintaining the best standards of modern day service. From initial renovations just 3 years ago, Barn 1888 is a hot commodity to book for your wedding; boasting an average of 50 events for two consecutive seasons from a total of 9 the first year.
Not only is Barn 1888 one of the most beautiful barn venues found in West Michigan, it is centrally located 30 minutes from Grand Rapids, Kalamazoo and the Lakeshore. This venue is just far enough away from the busy traffic of downtown to provide a delightful experience and charm for your guests.
Unforgettable Outside Ceremony
Barn 1888 offers a complete access to 20 acres for couple’s ceremony and reception. Danielle suggests clients use the newly renovated Chapel Gardens for ceremony and the beautiful Gambrel barn for reception. The Main Barn includes use of the lower level area for cocktails, or even a alternate location to hold your wedding in case of rain.
*Also included: Bathrooms, Bridal Suite (with its own private bathroom), and a prep area for the Caterer’s can also be accessed from the Lower Level too.
Set Apart from the Rest
Adding new features each year that bring “a fresh experience to each season,” owners Danielle and Bryan want nothing more than for each bride and groom to leave happy and boasting with love. From offering an open door to Barn 1888’s full decor stock for no extra charge, to cutting the grass 3 times a week, the team at this venue truly go the extra mile to serve you the best experience. Danielle shares that the work is deeply personal and relationship based with clients,
“My husband and I are the first ones to greet the couple when they arrive and the last ones to send them off. We are always available to help and want their day to be perfect.”
