As you search for the perfect venue to host your wedding, you’ll be faced with a big decision! Your venue is, of course, the setting for your day, and it can have a huge effect on the vibe of the wedding. If you’re hoping for natural scenery, and a place that combines rustic charm and modern elegance, look no further than Robin Hills Farm!
Along with weddings, Robin Hills Farm often hosts holiday events, sustainability workshops, and more. The farm is dedicated to environmental stewardship, and was designed to preserve the natural landscape surrounding the farm. The 129 acre estate uses solar power, and offers visitors, couples, and wedding guests a chance to explore three miles of trails through the woodland, wetland, and grassy meadow that serve as a habitat for birds, reptiles, and other wildlife! You can also get a visit from some of the farm’s sheep, goats, and chickens.
The idyllic setting, eco-friendly practices, and the peaceful, remote feeling of Robin Hills Farm make this a perfect wedding venue for any nature loving couple!
Robin Hills Farm is located in Chelsea, Michigan, less than half an hour west of Ann Arbor. Its peaceful location makes it feel far away from the hustle and bustle of the city, and the remoteness of this idyllic spot combined with the convenience of being close to town makes this the perfect place to host your wedding!
To rent Robin Hills Farm for your wedding day, it’ll be $12,000 (check out The Knot for the most up to date info), with the option to add amenities as needed. A 50% ($6,000) deposit is required to book the venue, with the rest due 90 days before your wedding.
With the rental you get a planning session with your event coordinator, access to the space for 2 hours for a rehearsal dinner the day before, getting ready spaces for the wedding party, parking attendants, a golf cart driver, and an outdoor ceremony site with an indoor backup plan. On the night of your wedding, the event needs to be over by 11pm.
Additional costs can include reception chairs for $3 per chair, table and linen rentals for $30 per table, an open bar package for $35 per guest, and bartenders for $50 per hour.
With a capacity of up to 250 people, Robin Hills Farms is the perfect wedding venue for medium sized events. You’ll have the entire farm to yourself, and there’s ample parking on site for you and all your guests!
This is the best part, Robin Hills Farm is actually a multi venue location! No matter what vibe you’re dreaming up for your big day, they have the perfect space for you. Here’s everything Robin Hills Farm has to offer when you’re ready to tie the knot!
There are several options around the farm for your ceremony location. The amphitheater provides a large stage with seating built into the natural landscape of the farm, creating a versatile space to say your vows! It’s surrounded by trees, creating a contrast between the greenery and the theater. If you’re envisioning an “au naturale” wedding, this might be the ceremony space for you!
If you’re dreaming of a modern greenhouse wedding, look no further! The Glasshouse offers a unique ceremony venue – the house is made of glass all around, with a patio extending the space outdoors. You can host your entire event here or hold your ceremony in the Glasshouse and move your reception to the barn. It also makes a great backup plan if the weather doesn’t cooperate for an outdoor ceremony.
In the middle of Robin Hills Farm’s 129 acres is the Prairie House; it has a commercial grade kitchen, private rooms, and a gathering space. With wood paneled ceilings, the building incorporates a hint of natural charm in its modern industrial design. Outside on the patio, you’ll have sweeping views of the picturesque Dragon Pond! It’s the perfect reception space for any couple envisioning a modern space surrounded by beautiful scenery.
The adorable rustic barn, made from sustainably sourced lumber, opens on three sides for a cozy, but open, space to host your reception. The second floor is complete with a room for the wedding party to get ready, with ample space and natural light, along with couches and big mirrors!
To ensure that everything goes smoothly, the venue provides an in-house coordinator who knows the space inside and out! They’ll be able to help you make your vision come to life, from finding the perfect spot for your ceremony to customizing decorations for your unique day. On your wedding day, your coordinator will be there to ensure that everything is running smoothly, so that you don’t have to worry about a single thing – other than getting married!
Want your furry friend to be a part of your wedding day? They’re part of the family, and if you can’t imagine tying the knot without your best friend, you’ll be happy to know that Robin Hills Farm welcomes dogs!
There are nearly three miles of trails on the property, along with 4 ponds, a creek, and forests, gardens, and wetlands to explore. You definitely won’t run out of opportunities for gorgeous photos, and because the folks at Robin Hills Farm thought of everything, they’ll even provide a golf cart to go between locations on the farm so that you don’t have to walk too far for photos!
