Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • An excellent example of rustic elegance, this vintage Gothic dairy barn is just minutes from the Twin Cities, and surrounded by woods, pastures, and fields blanketed with flowers.
  • Al fresco ceremonies enjoy beautiful sunsets and valley views. Or exchange vows inside the 8,000-square-foot barn, which features a vaulted ceiling and stunning wooden interior with a hayloft and wraparound mezzanine.
  • Huge dressing suites suites let you get ready with ease—and stay comfy year-round in the all-weather barn. Plus, they offer a choice of three different catering packages.
