help!

I am really struggling to find a place to have my wedding reception. I am going to be having a large reception (350-400) and am looking for something kind of unique. I really wanted to have it in an old barn but all the ones I can find are too far away either in ann arbor or the southwest side of the state. I am also looking for a place where I can have a tent reception and hire my own caterer but I am also struggling with that. I love older restored buildings, especially ones with brick walls but I am having no luck with anything. I live between the Lansing and Grand Rapids area and any suggestions for either area would be greatly appreciated!

    Not sure you are going to find a barn that can hold 400 people but the closest I have found is in Ravenna. About 30 miles north of Grand Rapids. here is the link.

    Try Wildwood Family farms, just outside of Caledonia.  They have a big space next to a pond that could probably hold big enough tents for your size reception.  They have a super super cute barn with super cute landscaping! And the family is really nice! When you go to their website, click on photos and 'barn parties'- the pictures are awesome! Good luck!

    I went to a reception/wedding in Revena. It was LOVELY! I don't think it fits 400 people, but it great. You can bring in your own caterer as well (since my fiance and I catered there.)
