|General Information About WeddingsThe Barn
The barn serves as a unique place to have your wedding dance, along with the ceremony if you choose. Many choose to have the ceremony outdoors, but if the weather is not looking so good, this is a good back up to have a covered ceremony.
The farmhouse, also located on the property sleeps up to 10 of your guests; whether it's your wedding party, or out-of-town family and friends. The house also serves as a place for the wedding party to get ready for the wedding as well as a place to relax.
Whether you wish to have your ceremony inside the barn or outside under the beautiful maple trees, it is up to you. There are plug ins available by the more popular ceremony places located around the property allowing you to plug in microphones, speakers, etc.
You must hire a licensed caterer for your event, cooking for your guests in the farmhouse is not allowed.
You need to contact a bar with a catering liquor license so they can serve the liquor/alcohol per Minnesota law. Bringing alcohol for your guests is not allowed. Our list of recommendations has a couple options for you.
We have built a 40' x 100' farm theme shelter that will eliminate any need to rent a tent. The shelter holds hold up to 300 guests comfortably for a sit down dinner.
Tables & Chairs
Tables and chairs are included in your rental fee. We have some 6 foot rectangular tables and lots of 5 foot rounds. Our chairs are white padded resin. We also have cocktail tables.
Beginning in 2017 we are adding permanent fully functioning restrooms!
We encourage you to decorate with your own style to make your even truly one of a kind. No open flame of any kind is not allowed in the barn. Anything that you put up that was not there before must be taken down at the end of your event. We have lots of decorations for rent to help save you money and time. Contact me for a detailed list.
