Welcome to the Longacre House in Farmington Hills!
24705 Farmington Rd, Farmington Hills, MI 48336
The outdoor space that the house has makes a perfect location for an outdoor ceremony. The grounds surrounding the house is full of beautiful tree lines and gardens for photos.
One of the coolest parts of this venue is that it has a variety of different rooms that give couples the opportunity to spread out all of the different wedding elements. While having a large open space is more of a traditional layout, there is something so much more personal when a couple has a venue that allows for vignette design in each space. It is like giving your guests an opportunity to walk through a museum versus booth to booth when setting up banquet style tables. I mean look at this room in this photo? Can't you imagine amazing dress, or groomsmen or any type of photo being captured here?
SO.... the is the first stop on my venue tour, The St. John INN! 202o has been one hell of a weird year so that means my tour has been no different! Normally by the middle of the summer I have already been to a few places, but this year my tour was postponed. However, it hasn't stopped me from visiting as many places as possible now ( safely of course ) so that I can continue to refer my couples to the venue that fits their vision!
Let's get started!
This space above....YES you guessed it is the beautiful courtyard. I am so lucky to have a couple using this space. We have so much opportunity to make it their own but honestly....it's stunning even without much added.
Their wedding is in December and I think that, especially with the beautiful installation of holiday decor that St. John already does, their vision of a romantically lit space will easily come to fruition.
This space accommodates round and banquet style tables perfectly which I really think is a stunning spatial layout, not to mention you have a ton of great options for where and how to do all of the amazing things on your list.
I really am drawn to that type of backyard, bistro, outdoors concept for events. This space allows for all of that BUT ALSO gives you the security of being indoors (no rain worries WOOP WOOP). The natural light during early parts of the event shines in and creates this welcoming atmosphere, and at night the lantern artificial light ( in combination with bistro ) shines on the variety of architectural details that makes this space one of a kind.
Thank you to Linda, who took the time out of her busy day to walk us through the space, for having us. You were was so accommodating and treated us with outstanding hospitality. This assures me that you and your team go above and beyond for your couples.
Till Next Time..
Cheers! Slainte! Salud!
