Planterra Conservatory, Zingerman’s Cornman Farms Named by Brides Magazine as ‘Best Venue’ for 2017


Two Southeastern Michigan venues—Planterra Conservatory and Zingerman’s Cornman Farms—have been singled out by Brides Magazine as being among the “Best Venues in America for 2017.”
Planterra, located in West Bloomfield, Mich., joins Dexter, Mich.-based Zingerman’s Cornman Farms in earning the distinction. Only one other Michigan venue, the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island, made the Brides list, which appears in the February/March 2017 issue (and online at

Judging for the “best venue” distinction was done through a survey of some 1,697 recent brides, according to the magazine.

Stellar views, creative cuisine and “above and beyond service” were the primary qualifications for selection on the list of winning venues.

Shane Pliska, president of Planterra, said being selected for the prestigious list by Brides magazine is a recognition of the world class experience he and his team achieve at the Planterra Conservatory. This is the first year the botanical garden venue was included on the list.

“It is a great honor to be listed among the finest and storied wedding venues nationally. It is beyond my expectations from when Planterra first opened the Conservatory to weddings seven years ago,” said Pliska. “What is particularly heartwarming is to realize that so much of what we have aspired to has been recognized by the national spotlight.”

At Zingerman’s Cornman Farms, Kieron Hales, Executive Chef and Owner, said being named to Brides magazine list for a second time was a welcome nod to its staff.

“We love what we do here at the farm and hope our sense of family is shared with each of our brides. Our goal is always to provide the warmth and coziness of a friend’s home while offering the service and amenities of a full-service venue. It is genuinely rewarding to see the results of our efforts.”
