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.

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.
