About Us

Southern Exposure is a barn and farm wedding venue located in Battle Creek, Michigan, which was originally built in 1839. An ideal choice for those seeking a countryside wedding, this setting is brimming with natural beauty and cultivated charm. With both indoor and outdoor spaces to host the festivities, you can truly enjoy the day here, surrounded by loved ones and romantic views.

Facilities and Capacity

Join together in matrimony with your significant other outdoors in the pretty gardens at Southern Exposure, as you celebrate two lives coming together. Out on the lawn, you can join arm-in-arm as you stand proudly in front of the floral pergola to say your vows. After the rings have been exchanged and you have both said ‘I do’, your guests can mark the occasion with flashes of light, clicks of their cameras, and rapturous applause.

Beautifully colorful petals can be strewn along the grass as your makeshift aisle, while your guests watch on with a mixture of pride, love, and heartfelt emotion.

Elsewhere outside, the couple of honor and some of their guests can pose for photos among the colorful, fragrant flowers or take a stroll around the property. Once you have preserved some of the memories to display on your mantelpiece in the weeks and months that follow, you can make your way to the gazebo/canopy.

Here, sheltered from the elements, your guests can sit on folding deck chairs as they chatter around linen-covered tables. Plants, flowers, and ornaments add splashes of vibrancy here and there as everyone settles in for the evening. In the adjacent canopy, a head table can be set up for the happy couple and some of the wedding party or family members to take a seat.

The red corn crib is another one of the spaces that adds to the overall appeal of this venue.

Services Offered

There are a variety of wedding packages available at Southern Exposure. Their standard option includes wedding party suites, tables, chairs, use of the sound system, champagne flutes, setup, cleanup, and a great deal more.

Additionally, they can offer bar packages where staff can serve a range of beverages such as wine, beer, cognac, and more.

The venue is also willing to arrange a number of consultations - both with the wedding coordinator and the culinary chef.


The wedding-day meal is surely one of the most important aspects of the day. That's why Southern Exposure pours a lot of effort into making it as good as possible. Honey-roasted chicken breast, scallops wrapped in bacon, and more can be made available to please a plethora of palates. That is why Southern Exposure offers a variety of wedding menu options such as hors d’oeuvres, served dinners, entree buffets, as well as combination buffets.

  • Due to COVID restrictions, we had to move venue locations 30 days before our planned wedding day. Lucky for us, Southern Exposure had our date open. The whole experience with them was an absolute dream and if I could give them 10 stars I would. The grounds look like they are out of a fairytale. The entire venue has so much charm! Dakota was super responsive/helpful at all times and Jennifer will forever be our fairy godmother. Whenever we needed anything at all our fairy godmother was there to provide it for us. Our guests were always taken care of and left happy. We cannot thank Southern Exposure enough for the most perfect weekend!
