Please tell us about your business. What services are you able to provide for brides and weddings?
The Northfork Estate is your Elegant~Distinctive Wedding Venue. Located in the only Eaton Rapids on Earth, The Northfork Estate is as unique as the town itself. We host only one event per day. This ensures private use of the entire 50-acre Estate for each couple and their guests. Tables, chairs and white linens are included for up to 300 guests. We also include golf cart shuttle service, set up and tear down services. At The Northfork Estate, we specialize in making your wedding day Elegant~Distinctive and Yours! Therefore, you can hire your own caterers and additional vendors or we can help assist you in selecting some of the most reputable companies in Mid-Michigan . We have wonderful vendor recommendations and are glad to assist in any or all of your planning.
Why does your business like working with brides, or at weddings?
At The Northfork Estate, our number one goal is for the couple to have the wedding of their dreams. Our philosophy is that we have had our wedding and we feel all our couples should get the wedding of their dreams not our dreams! It is wonderful to be involved throughout the process of planning and especially on the day of the big event! It thrills us every time to see the new couple announced and take the dance floor for the first time!
What can your business provide to brides or weddings that is unique from competitors?
Our entire venue is Elegant~Distinctive. From the life sized commissioned bronze horse and the wrought iron gates, which was commissioned exclusively for the Estate in Virginia, to the winding road that leads to the Grand Reception Hall, each and every section of the Estate was created with Love. The seven natural ponds perfectly positioned throughout the property, a pavilion and several Flagstone patios are just some of the beautiful additions to the 50 acres of sculpted landscaping.
Do you have any bridal, group, or special wedding discounts?
We offer Sunday to Friday pricing along with Saturday pricing. We offer two incentives per year following each of the bridal shows we attend in September and January.
What else do you want to share or want brides to know about your business? What kind of message are you looking for brides to understand about your business?
The Northfork Estate is a family run business. At the Northfork Estate we love seeing the light in the eyes of the newly married couple and knowing that we are a part of that very special day.
