Barns and BBQ at MSU Tollgate Farm

Updated: Jul 23, 2022

Wedding at Tollgate Farm. Music by Rondo String Quartet.

Dedicated to Michigan State University by the Americana Foundation, Tollgate Farm is a beautiful farm setting will remain free from the effects of the rapid development that is common throughout southeast Michigan. The farm includes 70 acres of open pasture land and hayfields, 40 acres of woods, a pond, an arboretum, beautifully maintained buildings and horticultural demonstration gardens.

Melissa and Eric chose this venue for their wedding day and exchanged their vows in the Sakura Cherry Blossom garden. Rudolph Makupson, a friend of the couple, officiated and introduced the newlyweds with a Star Wars quote followed by our playing the Star Wars Throne Room song for their recessional. It was a lighthearted moment that reflected their fun-loving nature.

The reception was held in the historic Tollgate Barn, built in 1850. Our friends the Slingin' Sisters were on hand with their bartending skills and Smoke Street BBQ put on a delicious dinner. Congratulations to Eric and Melissa!
