The Red Shed Reviews
"The Red Shed of Hudsonville, Michigan was the perfect rustic, romantic feel this couple ever dreamed of. From its big green grass fields to its gorgeous red barns, this venue was perfect. Not to mention these unique origami swans hanging from the shed ceilings. This place tells a story and it could be a chapter in your book. If you are looking for a place to have the best day of your life, check out The Red Shed!"

"Beautiful place for a wedding or other event! Jill & Rick and family are fantastic hosts in an idyllic farm setting. Very nice setup & farm/rustic decor in place already - just need to add your own touches to make for a fun party!"
"As the bride, I couldn't have pictured a more beautiful day for my wedding than here at the Red Shed. Ashley and her family were incredibly helpful in arranging and allowing ample time to set up the venue, answering any questions promptly, and really facilitating the event well. They're were many places to take unforgettable pictures, and many cute decorations that you can choose from to really make it your own. I'm really thankful for how smoothly everything went! Thanks Red Shed!!!"
"This venue is owned and operated by a family who really knows the true values of love and being a family. I photographed a wedding at The Red Shed this past Saturday and the experience I had with them was great! They really want the best for the bride and groom on their day and they aim to make everything feel relaxed and taken care of. The barn and getting ready room were beautiful, everything was clean and beyond well beyond put together. It was so elegant. They were very generous to let me take photos anywhere I wanted and even gave me a tour of the ceremony site so I could prepare and get my camera set up the way I needed for lighting. I can't recommend this venue enough. It's a great place to be married, and a great place to make some memories."

"Everyone at The Shed is amazing. From the first visit, they have been nothing but welcoming and will go out of their way to help you with every detail. We held our wedding and reception here, and they did such a great job flipping the room around for us quickly. They got everything put into place perfectly, and then during dinner made sure everything was stocked and going smoothly. Also sooo much decor for us to use, including table linens. Everything was handled so professionally and every single person there was the sweetest and most helpful I could imagine."
"The Lubbers' family- Ashley, Matt, Whitney, Jill and Rick were all outstanding to work with. Ashley was super organized, friendly and was able to instantly see my vision for the Red Shed. She made my day go off perfectly. She was a calming presence during the entire planning process and made me feel at ease/ excited instead of stressed and nervous! Matt, Jill, Rick and Whitney did so much behind the scenes to make the Red Shed look perfect. From cleaning to rearranging, to tear down they were wonderful.
I can't recommend this venue enough!! Thank you!"
"Beyond amazing!! The venue is not only gorgeous but this family owned business is full of nothing but love. Ashley and her family truly enjoy making every bride and groom's day nothing short of perfect! Thank you for welcoming our two families with open arms! You guys rock!!"
"Great family-owned venue! We couldn't have asked for more professional, personalized service for our daughter and
"We had an amazing reception here this past June. Everyone was so accommodating, and so eager to help us with setting up, and making us feel welcome. I would HIGHLY recommend this venue to anyone who is looking for a unique space and a fantastic experience."

We had our wedding at The Red Shed and absolutely loved it!! Not only is it a beautiful space but the owners are truly incredible and a joy to work with. They made the entire process easy and fun- they truly enjoy hosting and you will feel the love.
I highly recommend them!
"My husband and I got married here last spring and we cannot say enough good things about the Red Shed and the Lubbers Family! We planned our wedding in a little over 4 months and couldn't have done it without their help. The barn is absolutely beautiful and they had a lot of decorations that you could use. We were able to set up for our wedding earlier in the week so we could enjoy our rehearsal and wedding day. When we came to set up, Ashley helped with decoration ideas and set up - I felt like I had hired a wedding planner.
The Lubbers family went above and beyond! They helped with set up and tear down, refilled our drink containers, lit our candles, and much more so that we AND our guests could enjoy ourselves. The farm offers great photo opportunities as well! We recommend the Red Shed to all our newly engaged friends and we have two friends who have booked their weddings here for this coming year."
"The Red Shed was AMAZING, We LOVE the Lubbers!! I'm pretty sure we took the cake on having THE hottest wedding (97 degrees in September! Someone prayed too hard for a sunny warm day!). But despite the heat...the Lubbers crew was AMAZING with helping us plan, plan, and do more planning, leading up to the big day. To Ashley being ok with being my speed dial for the last couple months answering ASAP any and every question I threw at her. To helping us set up the days prior to the wedding, to ALL of them helping out the ENTIRE day of the wedding and being our sanity when we needed it most, to helping tear down and clean everything up. THEY. ARE. AMAZING. I would recommend this venue in a MINUTE! From the moment we first walked up to the barn my now husband and I knew right away that it was the place we wanted to celebrate with lots of family and friends and Ashley helped us make everything happen!
I would definitely message them today if you are looking for a venue, or at the very least if you know a friend looking for a venue be a dear and help them out!
WE LOVE THE RED SHED!"
