Welcome to Sundance & The Secret Garden

Sundance is located in the village of Millburg, amongst the “Wedding Belt" of Southwest Michigan.

Just 1.5 hours from Chicago and 2.5 hours from Detroit…making it a perfect middle area for your out of town guests.

The owners Amelia & Kirby Briske are cutting edge Designers and Artist who met while Studying Fine Art in Chicago 18 years ago. This Husband and Wife team have taken an abandoned bank, a historical blacksmith shop and farm equipment station and turned it into a one of a kind Venue. You get a bit of Barn with a touch of Urban hip - all wrapped in a very unique venue … Truly nothing like it!

The Dining room itself offers a cement block/white washed walls…. with steel framed factory windows - This room is full of hand made chandeliers, an assortment of wood tables and vintage touches everywhere - just adjacent is the dancehall (once a blacksmith shop) has a rustic a framed ceiling - It is raw and cool!

The Ceremony site is located thru the Parlor door in the courtyard (outback) … yes it is a Secret Garden! Nestled in this area is the Bridal cottage and Grooms Garage - with stone paths that lead you to every magical spot. The courtyard is influenced by old European gardens - Roses, Lavender, Sage & Fern. Decorative white steel railings line the walk way to the arbor which is framed by Huge Arborvitaes. A Vintage bar is located just down a hill for the perfect Outdoor cocktail party.
