Whether you are looking for the perfect wedding reception destination, an elegant party venue, or a quaint marriage ceremony, The Northfork Estate will provide an unforgettable experience. 

Marta Brown purchased the Eaton Rapids property in 2004 when it was only farmland. She later developed the property into what it is today.

Marta’s family and friends fell in love with the estate and held their weddings at her home. In 2015, she married her husband Nathan on the property in the Great Hall. Marta and Nathan quickly realized they had something very special to share.

“My husband and I hosted our wedding here and it was the wedding of our dreams. We want to provide that for other people,” said Brown. “We try to make everyone’s experience the best it can be.”

When you first arrive at The Northfork Estate you are greeted by “Harley”, a life-sized, bronze horse statue commissioned exclusively for the property. With numerous ponds and waterfalls, rolling hills, meticulous landscaping, a large pavilion and breathtaking statues and structures, there are endless options to ensure you have a standout celebration.

In addition to the property’s landscaping, the indoor venue is just as distinctive. The main building is 9,000 square feet with a foyer and hall. Inside hangs exquisite chandeliers. There are patios along the main building and all throughout the property. Every photographer that comes through captures a different picture due to the endless details around each corner.

“I have had brides bring in trailers of decorations and I have had brides bring in mason jars with flowers in the center and it looks just as beautiful either way,” Brown said.

Along with The Northfork Estate’s breathtaking views and unique location, Brown is no stranger to event planning. With 15 years in the business, you can spend your special day focusing on what really matters, while leaving the arrangements to the professionals.

“Our staff is great. I am here from when the couple signs the contract to the end of the event,” Brown said. “They can call on me 24/7 to give advice or answer questions. They become part of our family when they decide to get married here.”

Included in all their packages are white linens, tables and chairs along with golf carts to reduce the stress of parking. Brown’s staff will set up and clear the event. She also allows other vendors to come in to ensure your occasion is exactly what you envisioned.

Only one event per day is held on the property providing you with a private facility. While the weekends are filling up fast for summer weddings, the estate is the perfect location for large corporate events and galas during the weekdays. With 50 acres of sprawling land, The Northfork Estate is sure to be a distinct setting for your occasion.

At The Northfork Estate, Brown and her team are dedicated to providing a day you will never forget.
