EXPERIENCES

The Enchanted Barn is the premier rural wedding venue. Located in the pastoral Midwest, this primitive dairy barn with original fieldstone and timbers has been meticulously restored. The Enchanted Barn focuses on uniqueness and charm with the marriage of rustic and elegance. It maintains the atmosphere of raw romance while allowing individual expression and style to be created on a neutral canvas. As a full service venue, priority to detail creates fairytale weddings time after time with attention to every one of your senses.

WEDDING PACKAGE INFORMATION

Catering
We offer three styles of catering through our partner vendors. Choose our popular house caterer as reflected in our standard “Raw Romance” package. Or, for smaller intimate weddings, our ultra gourmet selection will capture the most critical palates. Or go back in time with the experience of watching our Chuckwagon chef’s cook over the open fire during cocktail hour.

Wine

We supply a bar area, complete with mismatched wine glasses, old stock tank to cool and façade beer kegs, and aged washtub tins for whimsical presentation of bottled beverages.

The Enchanted Barn was truly a dream come true in terms of a venue. I love that they worked with me on every idea I had to make it come to life. They don't push "cookie-cutter" weddings on you and are so flexible in truly making your day all about exactly what you envision. The venue itself is so unique and fun, my guests are still raving about the magical experience they had there.

The venue is beautiful: elegant, yet rustic. The staff was fabulous and accommodating to our requests and changes. The timing of the switch from ceremony to appetizers to dinner to dance was incredible: amazingly fast. I felt the value for cost was excellent and the organization exemplary.
We used the recommended caterer, and the food was fine. The appetizer, bruschetta, was superb, and the cheese and crackers were deli pick up, with the meal being ok. When using a caterer, I guess I expected a bit more than frozen peas and carrots for the "summer blend". Having said that, we were blessed to have found The Enchanted Barn.

The Enchanted Barn responded with the following comments:

We have decided to give our brides and grooms more catering options when it comes to picking out your wedding menu. We now have 5 different caterers which will allow you to choose from different styles and pick from one that will be just what you are looking for.

My fiance is from a small town in Wisconsin, and the typical places that people would choose for their wedding event were pricey and not that special. If you have been reading my reviews, I think it's pretty obvious that I wanted something special and different! Something beautiful!
The Enchanted Barn was suggested to us at a church dinner (!) when we mentioned that we wanted a place to celebrate that was out of the ordinary. She said, "Why not an Enchanted Barn?"
I giggled, thinking that she was joking. But as it turns out, the place does exist! The owner had the insight of taking a rustic barn, cleaned it out, and then added details that brought out it's simple beauty. On the website you can see the tiny little candle holders, but it's not until evening starts approaching that their romantic glow can truly be experienced!
Because of the time of year (July) there were beautiful flowers out around the barn in a gorgeous garden, but if you plan it carefully (like August) there are some amazing vibrant colors!

There is also facilities for your caterers to set up, and a DJ. We were a group of about 80, but you could easily fit twice as many. The only drawback is that there is no hotels right by the barn, and we were worried about people driving drunk (with good reason). We settled it by having the shuttle bus service! Safety for all!

For people who are in Minneapolis and are nature-oriented, I would highly suggest this place. It is very, very affordable, they can provide you with contacts for caterers if you don't already have them, and we felt that this was "our place" on the day of. We felt at home, and it was a great and beautiful place to have our family and friends.

This Venue WAS everything that you would expect and more. The staff and owner really know how to make your day special. Your vision WILL come true if you work with this barn and staff. I have had more communication with the staff to get ideas and really know how the day would go and as a bride that was something that helped put my mind at ease. Driving up to the barn, I will admit was not the most visually exciting, but once you walk past the doors, you are in awe of everything that comes to life. All the reviews from our wedding were amazing and I keep getting them. "This was the best wedding I have ever been too!" It is so nice to hear that with all the planning and preparation that went into it, the barn had an amazing way of providing the extra special touch that in no way could I have added at another venue.

Our wedding at the Enchanted Barn was the most amazing day of our lives, and the wonderful staff at the Barn made that happen. Communication leading up to the day of the wedding was great (especially once we were within a few months of the date). When we had dietary questions about the meal for a few of our guest, we were given the direct number of the chef. When we weren't sure how our table arrangements were going to work in their space and other miscellaneous questions, Barn coordinator Kimberly spent nearly an hour on the phone with us guiding us through things. We rented the space for a rehearsal dinner the night before (Friday weddings are great in that regard), and the staff allowed my mother-in-law to come out and set up outdoor decorations all morning. It rained the day of the wedding, but no one seemed to notice, they were having too much fun. Owner Lorin choreographed the movement between ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner, desert, and dancing beautifully, and not a detail was left unconsidered. Now we have great memories and beautiful photos of our wedding. Wonderful venue!

The owner and chief coordinator were very down to earth and easy to work with. We lived overseas while planning our wedding and they accommodated us during our brief visits home. The Enchanted Barn as a whole offers a turn-key solution, which was ideal for our situation and makes it extremely convenient for anyone planning a wedding. The venue provided the ceremony, reception, bartenders, band/dancing area, outdoor tent, pasture and bonfire. The staff were also open to our ideas and transformed the barn to exactly how we envisioned it. On the day of the wedding, they were also very flexible when some guests had dietary requirements that were not brought to our attention beforehand. Overall, great people, great venue and the food was fantastic along with the ambiance of the whole evening.

The team at the Barn were amazing and so helpful in executing our vision for our special day. The entire day went off without a hitch which was just wonderful because we didn't have to worry about a single thing and I tend to be a micro-manager/perfectionist and really wanted to be able to relax on the day. Everything was magical, they added 2 extra horses to the 2 they already had wandering around which really made my heart sing, I love horses. We also had a campfire and were so glad we did- the most amazing food was the Cornish game hen... Soooo tender and full of flavor, I would highly recommend it. The barn also recently installed some great washrooms, very cute and in theme with the venue. Overall everything was absolutely perfect and we were glowing with happiness on the day and are still smiling remembering all the little details they took care of.

One of the best things about the barn was the fact that they took care of the flow of the evening- they organize the tables and rearranging everything so all you have to worry about is telling them where you want everything and then leave it up to them! It was such an intimate wedding and all our family and friends were raving about it and how beautiful everything was- we caught it at the peak of fall colors and on a perfect sunny day. I would highly recommend a fall wedding as the barn really retains heat and we had no issues at all with it being chilly out. When we visited the barn in the summer to see it, it was an oven! The last thing I will give them props for is their recommending vendors to use. Because I was planning from a across the country I needed all the help I could get and when I had several vendors fail to be professional, the barn team were right there to recommend some better ones and they ended up being amazing too!

We had the most amazing wedding at The Enchanted Barn. Shannon and her team made sure that everything flowed seamlessly on the day. We had not a care in the world but to enjoy our special day. The venue was gorgeous - the summer landscaping is beautiful and adds to the ambiance of the venue.

We had a few minor issues as you will with any large event. Just make sure you are on top of your event needs and finances in the planning process (they were in the midst of a system change so there were a few minor glitches that we needed to correct).

The team was amazing, the venue was gorgeous, everyone had a good time. What more could you ask for?

The Enchanted Barn was greater than any of our expectations. The staff went above and beyond. All of our guests commented how our wedding was the most unique wedding they had seen. They even commented that the ceremony was the most beautiful which I credit much of that to the feeling of the barn with the lit candles and door open behind us to the fields. Overall, we could not have asked for more for our wedding.

We loved having our wedding at The Enchanted Barn. We were impressed by the professionalism of the team and the organization as a whole. They were very flexible and able to put everything together in a short time frame. We loved the bridal suite for getting ready and for staying the night.

The only thing that I wish was different was that our guests later said that they were cold during the reception. Granted, it was unseasonably cold in April this year, but it seemed like the heat was turned off at some point during the evening. In the end, I liked having everyone down stairs in the parlor, it was warmer and more intimate.

Working with The Enchanted Barn team was great, although sometimes it took a while and a few follow up calls to hear back from them. Before working with the barn I read some reviews online stating that communication was sometimes lacking so as long as you are aware, it makes it easier waiting to hear back.

Overall, we loved our experience and we would do it over again in a heartbeat!

Our wedding at the Enchanted barn was perfect. Kimberly and the rest of the staff were absolutely amazing to work with....so helpful leading up to the wedding and the day of. The venue is beautiful and my guests had an amazing time. Many of them said "best wedding I've ever been to"! The property is beautiful and the transitions from ceremony to dinner to dance was seamless. My only feedback is regarding the food. The amount of food was good but taste was marginal. We had chicken and beef...the chicken was ok but the beef was very dry and I did hear that some guests had cold food. The service at the head table during dinner could have been better as well. I ran out of both water and wine and waited quite some time before receiving a re-fill. At the end of the day the food did not take away from how amazing everything else was. I would absolutely recommend the Enchanted Barn to anyone looking for a rustic outdoor wedding!

It was nice to have pricing itemized out ahead of time since we were trying to balance a budget and our preferences. I wish that we could have taste tested the specific meals we want to try first, but the food we had was wonderful (I might have chosen a more daring/expensive entree option if I could have tried it first).
Initially getting ahold of you for inquires/first contact proved a little challenging, but once we were signed up for our wedding it was a lot easier to get ahold of our event planner. The bridal profile was very thorough and made the wedding day pretty smooth.

The Enchanted Barn is such a unique venue to have a wedding! My husband and I loved it, family loved it, guests loved it! The barn itself was built in the 1880's and has retained all the unique characteristics, details, and beauty from when it was first built. My husband and I appreciate the simplicity and elegance the Barn displays and it just took my breath away on the day of our wedding! Everything was set up so beautifully and the workers really kept things running smooth! I am so thankful that we went with The Enchanted Barn as the place that we got married! Wow, it was so fun!!!

Ohmahgawd...what can I say about The Barn? After getting engaged and seeing the barn, I KNEW I needed to get married there! We ended up lucking out and booking the last Saturday they had available. The wedding. was. fabulous. Seriously, it was honestly above and beyond everything I thought it could be. People are still RAVING about it, and the day went off without a hitch--seriously. Lorin and Kimberly and their staff know EXACTLY what they're doing, and they have it down to an art form.

The barn is insanely gorgeous, the land is beautiful, the drive in is so scenic and Wisconsin-y, it's just perfect. Their new bridal suite is beyond perfect--it's SO worth it to stay on-site, and it's so enjoyable because it's so nice/new/fancy! Lorin and Kimberly will seriously work with you to make whatever ridiculous bridal vision you have work--they're seriously miracle workers!

I did vote lower on responsiveness, as it does tend to take awhile to hear back from Kimberly via email, HOWEVER, it's TOTALLY WORTH IT. DO NOT let this scare you off at all. It makes it a little tough if your a total anal control freak like myself, but seriously, they know what they're doing and it SHOWS the day of--they're fabulous. I'd recommend this place over and over and over again.

Thank you!!! :D

When we first started looking for a venue for our wedding we knew we wanted something unique- we definitely found that with The Enchanted Barn!! This venue is gorgeous and is the perfect place to have a wedding!! You don't have to do very much for decorating because it is already beautiful, just a few things here and there. And, it is the perfect place for photos because it is in a beautiful location. I would not have wanted to have my wedding anywhere else!

This venue is one of a kind. Your guests are sure to remember your special day! Lorin & Kim are always available to answer any questions or concerns you may have. The initial pricing is a bit misleading, but overall worth the price.

The thing I was most impressed with is how the Barn kept the event moving. I was concerned that the guests were having such a good time that they wouldn't leave, but the transition from the barn to the waiting coach buses was very smooth.

The Barn was beautiful!!!!! It was the most amazing day of our lives and the Enchanted Barn made that happen. The whole atmosphere was enchanting! There were a few things that did not get done, which were a little frustrating but all together it was a great experience. One suggestion I would make is to get a wedding coordinator and to respond to the couples in a more timely fashion.

The enchanted barn was amazing for our wedding. W got married in 2010 so the new addition to the barn was still under construction which was our only complaint, and only because it was not disclosed to us that there would be any construction at all and the construction was not complete by our wedding date. There also was no indoor plumbing. I have seen pictures of the new construction and the barn looks amazing. I have a feeling that with every wedding the enchanted barn becomes more amazing. We will renew our vows there some day! Our wedding guests, to this day, tell us it was the best wedding they have ever been to!!!

The Enchanted Barn responded with the following comments:

We apologize for any miscommunication regarding the construction that was taking place during your wedding day. Our goal was to have all construction complete before any weddings. The good news is that yes, we have updated our venue. The construction is now complete with amazing bathrooms for guys and gals, a bridal suite with 3 rooms so you have on-site lodging, the milk shed which is for guys only, a more formal platting kitchen, as well as a commercial kitchen, and a staging area for our caterers. We hope that you will return someday to see the additions that we have made, and for the inconvenience of our construction project not being complete before your wedding, we would love to offer you a free night stay in the suite, whenever you decide to renew your vows, or just come for a visit.

My idea of a wedding was a simple, stressfree, no frills wedding in a natural setting. My husband and I are both easy going and totally the opposite of bridezilla. However, working with the barn staff was unbearable. The lack of communication showed completely disrespect for the bride and groom. Gathering simple information like typical table layout for dinner, table size, typical timeline of turning over the venue for dinner, typical ceremony seating layout, etc. was like pulling teeth. Emails and phone calls to gather this standard, and seemingly straightforward, information were never returned (it would take weeks for a response). And when communication was successful, information trickled in at such slow pace the planning process was practically on hold until two months before the wedding.

In addition, the barn provides an "inclusive pricing package" but in reality they just nickel and dime you any which way they can to earn an extra few bucks. Not ok for a couple trying to pay for the wedding themselves.

My husband and I almost cancelled our wedding with the barn twice as the stress of working with them was overwhelming.

Many other reviews tout how wonderful their wedding was the barn. Don't get me wrong, my wedding day was beautiful. However, it was my wonderful family and friends that made my wedding day so special, not the barn.
