This is the best venue for weddings in the Fargo/Moorhead area. Rustic Oaks was so easy to work with and thought about all the details that I would have overlooked. The Wedding Weekend package was perfect for what my husband and I dreamed our wedding to be, family and friends surrounding us to celebrate. We rented out both the houses and had a party for 2 days. The staff out at Rustic Oaks was always there if we needed them but not over bearing on our event. David and Ann dream for Rustic Oaks made our wedding a dream come true. Thank you to Rustic Oaks, Emily, David, Ann and Neil for the amazing party!

We honestly cannot say enough about this venue and the wonderful people who run it. The venue itself is beautiful and charming. We had SO many compliments at our wedding. Our guests enjoyed the unique, beautiful, and relaxed atmosphere as much as we did! To be honest, I had never imagined my wedding a venue such as Rustic Oaks. I'm more of "traditional" church type girl...but after meeting with the owners and Emily and seeing how beautiful the venue was, it was no question this was meant to be the place where we would say our "I Do's!"

With the thought of eloping in the backs of our minds while venue hunting we came across Rustic Oaks. From that moment on that thought never crossed our minds again. From the tranquility of the natural surroundings of Rustic Oaks, to the most amazing staff you could ask for, we had found our ideal venue.

From late night emails to Emily with questions about random things, I was always pleasantly surprised to see how quickly she responded with just the right information (sometimes within the hour, she's that good!), to feeling like family members were in charge of our wedding venue because of Dave and Anne's kind hearts, warm hospitality, and easy going personalities. We could not have asked for more.

Overall our experience was more than perfect. Our day went just as we had pictured, if not beyond that. The birds chirping, river flowing in the background, and blue skies as far as one can see helped make our special day relaxing and amazing!

Thank you Rustic Oaks for everything! Words cannot express our gratitude!

Rustic Oaks is a truly authentic, one-of-a-kind and beautiful venue. The natural landscape is stunning, and we were so glad that the space allows for a reliable Plan B in case of bad weather. Also, the flexibility regarding vendors meant that we could customize our Rustic Oaks wedding to make it our own.

One of the best things about Rustic Oaks is that the owners and manager are absolutely wonderful to work with. No detail is too small and no question is too random - they are consistently on-the-ball and attentive. From our first venue tour to the last song at our wedding reception, they were always committed to making our wedding perfect!

Let me start by saying a limit of 200 characters is not enough to tell you about how wonderful Rustic Oaks is! From our initial point of contact through after our wedding, we have been so impressed by the attention to detail, willingness to help, and sincere nature that Lars and Anne (owners) and Emily (coordinator) exhibit. They truly want to go above and beyond to make your day as perfect as possible. Their passion for doing this shines through the minute you step onto the grounds. The lawn is beautiful manicured with flowers and greens and they are continuously improving, not that they needed to because it was fabulous to begin with. Not only do they offer a beautiful location, but they open their gorgeous home to you to use to get ready the day of the wedding, and it’s also available to rent to stay overnight. Lars, Anne, Emily, and all of the other staff treated us like family instead of like customers. A major flood was scheduled to crest right around the time of our wedding! We knew the Red River ran right behind the property and we began to panic, thinking that we’d have to somehow find another wedding venue. Little did we know they had already coordinated with a local theater to be “plan B” and arranged to take us on a tour! They also designed postcards and had them printed and stamped to alert our guests of a possible change of plans. We were able to have our special day at their extra special venue and the ground was dry – hooray! We are so thankful that we found the most beautiful wedding venue with the most wonderful owners and employees! They truly put their hearts into their work and it’s vividly reflected in everything that they do.

I don't even know where to begin. From the moment I drove out to Rustic Oaks, I knew with everything in me, that this was the place I wanted to marry my best friend. All I have heard since our wedding was how beautiful and perfect everything was. It was better than anything I could have imagined. It was truely the best day of our lives and we are so happy we were able to share it with our friends and family. Dave, Anne, and Emily were a blessing! :-) Thank you Rustic Oaks for making our dream wedding come true! Love you all!

AMAZING!! We had our wedding back in August 2012 and it was everything we dreamed of. I had booked Rustic Oaks without looking at. I knew after looking at the website and seeing the gorgeous pictures and buildings we had to have our wedding there. We were so welcomed by Anne, Dave, and Emily when we went out to visit. Anne and Dave are generous people, allowing couples and their families to enjoy their amazing house and farm. We loved that they stayed at the venue in the back just in case we needed them. It was raining and storming on the night of our rehearsal, but we didn’t have to worry about a thing. Anne and Dave made sure to keep track of the weather to keep us and our guest safe and dry. I was stressed that night worried if it would rain the next day on our wedding. Anne came up to me and explained rain or shine the wedding will be amazing. The day of our wedding came and was gorgeous. Everything was PERFECT. There was nothing to stress about because everything had already been done by Anne, Dave, Emily, and Alicia Weigel. Thank you for making our special day the best memory of our life!! The Walz

The minute we stepped out of our vehicles to tour Rustic Oaks, Adam and I knew that this was the place we were going to become husband and wife. It is a picture perfect venue to host an outdoor, rustic, intimate wedding. Pictures don't even do it justice! We couldn't have asked for a more relaxing day while getting ready in the Inn. The upstairs bridal suite was more than spacious for all the ladies to lounge in for the day. The guys definitely enjoyed their time downstairs in the "man cave" watching TV and shooting pool. Our ceremony was set in the backyard, surrounded by trees and looking out over a serene pond. It was exactly how we wanted to start our married life together. Every one of our wedding guests were entertained during the reception, whether dancing in the barn's loft, relaxing on the barn deck, hanging out by the campfire, playing yard games, taking a stroll down to the river, or just taking in the beautiful scenery everywhere you looked. Last, but not least, Rustic Oaks' owners were more like our family on our wedding day. They were beyond helpful and made every second of our day worry-free. We couldn't have asked for a better experience from the first day of planning to the second we drove away as husband and wife. Thank you Rustic Oaks for making our wedding day everything we imagined and more.

Rustic Oaks was the perfect place for our wedding and the owners and staff made everything so perfect! The space on the property is so beautiful and provided the perfect back drop for our wedding day! Leading up to the wedding, Emily was so responsive and right on the ball with answers to our questions. They were so professional and had an answer for every question we could come up with! Using the house to get ready on our wedding day was so great and it made the day go seamlessly to have everyone at the venue. The ceremony space is so lovely, the reception is picturesque and the barn loft for the dance was amazing! We have gotten so many compliments on Rustic Oaks and many have said it is the most beautiful space for a wedding they have ever seen! Thank you so much to all the staff at Rustic Oaks for making our wedding everything we wanted and more. You all exceeded our expectations in every aspect!

I can't say enough about our entire day. Rustic Oaks was ABSOLUTELY amazing. As we worked through the wedding planning process, I wondered when I'd find out that the staff and the set up at Rustic Oaks was "too good to be true"... I never hit that point. They were really just that good. All around, Rustic Oaks is ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC! With a wonderful "bad weather back-up plan" and bubbly staff to assist with every other need, I HIGHLY recommend Rustic Oaks. I could not have imagined anything better!

Rustic Oaks provided the perfect scenery for the kind of green, vintage inspired rustic wedding my husband and I dreamt of. There is a large yard (where we chose to have our ceremony), a beautiful house (where the entire wedding party stayed), and a large barn (where we had our reception). There is so much to do - a play set for the little ones, a fire pit where we had an impromptu sing along, and wide open space to go for a walk. Despite the anxiety that can accompany a wedding, it was impossible to be nervous at Rustic Oaks. The owners and Emily are such lovely, helpful people. They work tirelessly to make sure that all the bases are covered and that the couple has nothing to worry about. They made our dream wedding a reality.

We LOVE Rustic Oaks!! I can't imagine a more perfect place to get married. We had looked for somewhere that was slightly off the beaten path and felt like "home" ~ somewhere that would bring to people's mind the way weddings used to be - at home, without all this wedding industry craziness and hoopla... and when we found Rustic Oaks, we knew that it was the perfect place to spend our wedding day with our family and friends. After contacting several local venues, I was used to waiting around several days for an email or phone call, but with Emily and the Rustic Oaks staff, I always heard back right away, sometimes within hours! The staff feels like family ~ even going over our wedding contract in their beautiful farmhouse kitchen. :) The facility is absolutely gorgeous ~ especially the renovated barn and the view of the beautiful Red River of the North. We loved getting ready in the farmhouse and having the whole place to ourselves for the day. We had SO many family and friends gush over our wedding venue and my favorite was: "this wedding changed what I thought my dream wedding was"... not because of our decorations or my dress or our cake or anything else, but because RUSTIC OAKS created a setting that made for amazing memories. We look forward to renting out Rustic Oaks in the future for anniversary BBQs, and who knows, maybe even family pictures once we start having babies!! :) LOVE, LOVE, LOVE.

My husband and I spent months searching for a venue. Everything was just a little bit off. Everything, that is, until we toured Rustic Oaks. You know how people say things like, "it'll feel right?" We felt immediately at ease on the grounds. It was apparent the staff cares about the couple's opinions and does very little to get in their way. Quite the opposite in fact; they were excited about our ideas and helped us to run with them to create an event that reflected us.

There were two factors of particular importance to us: to save money and time on food and decorations. They let us bring in our own wood fire pizza oven and liquor, which is a tremendously budget friendly option. Minimalism ruled the decor. That was possible because of the natural beauty of the grounds and the tasteful restoration of the buildings.

The staff is charming and efficient and works hard to make the couple feel relaxed and ready to experience a day of meaning and beauty.

Many thanks to Rustic Oaks!

We didn't have our wedding here, but we did our Rock The Dress/Newlywed photo shoot here! It is incredibly gorgeous! Our pictures look great, and I wish I would have known about this beautiful place before our wedding! :) I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a beautiful, quiet place to have a rustic wedding! The owner was very nice and didn't mind at all that we took our pictures there!

Absolutely awesome place to have a wedding!!!! Everything from a Friday grooms dinner to a Saturday wedding/reception/dance to a Sunday AM opening gifts can be done at the same place. The house is beautiful. The flowers/scenery are awesome. They set everything up and are there for you when needed ... but then give you your privacy when that is needed. I would recommend Rustic Oak highly.

I got married at Rustic Oaks in June and it turned out absolutely wonderful! I couldn't have asked for more!! The owners and wedding coordinator are so easy to work with. They are probably the nicest people I have met. They were all full of ideas and reccomendations. They gave us a list of all kinds of vendors, which was very helpful. They did all the set up and take down of tables and chairs. They have linens you can use for the tables. The place pretty much sells itself. It is so beautiful and easy to find. The barn is beautifully redone and over looks the river. Attached to the barn is a huge deck, that does have a tent over top. A really neat option that we did for (stealing of the bride and groom) was pontoon rides up and down the river. That was a lot of fun. You can also rent the pontoons by the hour and have them going through out the night and take guests out for short rides. They also have nice handicap accessable bathrooms right next to the barn. You really get your money's worth and alot of wonderful memeories made! I would absolutely recommend this place to anyone, if you want a nice/fun outdoor wedding!!

Absolutely fabulous site! A beautiful rural property on the river that has been recently renovated to be an event center--perfect if you are envisioning a day out in nature! The owners and event coordinator are wonderful--truly passionate about what they do. My favorite part? The fire pit--we had s'mores at my wedding!
