Port 393 is a wonderful wedding and event venue located in Holland, Michigan. In 2019, Owners Candice and Brian were unable to find a venue that met their needs. This birthed the idea to build a venue of their own!
Port 393 is a 2-level event venue with an exceptional view of the lake, a relaxing rooftop patio, a luxurious lounge, a large event space, and an abundance of amenities for your event.
We love working with Candice and her team because they have an intoxicating energy and make the process very easy for their clients and vendors. We look forward to a growing partnership with our favorite venue in West Michigan.

Briar Barns is an incredible indoor/outdoor venue in Sparta Michigan. They have one of the most well decorated and functional layouts with their side - by - side barns that accommodates for moderate to large guest amounts comfortably.
Their outdoor ceremony site, just a short walk from the barns, is a beautiful place to say your "I Do's". If weather doesn't permit an outdoor ceremonies they also have a stunning indoor ceremony location underneath the main barn.
We love working Briar Barns because of their great facilities and layout that make our jobs, and your big day more enjoyable.

Black River Barn is a tremendous big barn venue designed for large weddings and has one of, if not the best, ambience and amenities to serve your wedding party and guests. Incredible outdoor lounge areas that have several fire fits and fairy-tail lighting for the cocktail hour, dinner, and dancing make for a night to remember.
Their outdoor ceremony site is surrounded by a wall of tall and beautiful trees, and their state of the art sound system makes for crystal clear audio for the "here comes the bride" song and your officiant as they speak your vows for marriage.
Black River Barn is one of our favorite venues to work at because of the stunning architecture and beautiful design of the outdoor lounge area make for one of the best places in Michigan to celebrate and dance the night away.

Tylee Shay is a photographer for the madly in love. We have constantly been impressed with her creativity and ability to capture joyous and emotional moments in a photo. While based in West Michigan, she travels all over the country freezing time for couples wanting to make a moment last forever.
A lover of ice cream cones with sprinkles and any type of wine, Tylee is by far the most personable photographer and planner (the best photographers help run the wedding day schedule) we've worked with!
