About Us

True to its name, our venue truly is a “hidden gem”, nestled in a culdesac within the lovely community of Holt, Michigan. Our facility is encircled by manicured landscaping overlooking a picturesque pond. Once guests are standing on the terrace taking in the gorgeous views, they forget there’s a busy road not too far away.

Our Story

The Hidden Gem Event Venue began as a dream over ten years ago when new owners, Ernest and Carmen Tisdale, were shopping around for their wedding venue. They began to discuss purchasing a venue of their own one day. More importantly, they aspired to build a legacy for their family. Just for kicks, they decided to write down their vision, including the name, “The Gem”, draft a business plan, then placed it aside. Fast forward to more than a decade later, and The Hidden Gem Event Venue has become a reality. What better time for a vision to come to pass than the year 2020?
