Gorgeous Outdoor Weddings in Red Wing

We may be in the midst of our summer wedding season now, but that is precisely what makes it a great time to start planning your upcoming wedding! Wedding weekends at our Red Wing venue tend to be booked out well in advance, making this the perfect time of year to discover why we’re one of the best-rated outdoor wedding venues in Minnesota.

A central component of our Red Wing wedding venue is the historic round barn that stands on our property. It’s the perfect place for your wedding dance and cocktail hours – with our modern pavilion next door playing the perfect host for your reception dinner. Before the festivities commence, though, let’s talk about the ceremony location.

If you’ve been dreaming of a gorgeous outdoor ceremony, you won’t find outdoor wedding venues in Minnesota more beautiful than ours. Our venue sits on the outskirts of town, amidst the fields, woodlands, and bluffs characteristic of southeastern Minnesota. The natural beauty of our venue is only one part of the puzzle, though. When you choose to get married here, you’re also choosing to rely on our dedicated staff to bring your dream into reality.

We love working with couples around the country to help make their dream a reality and we look forward to celebrating your special union, too. If you’d like to tour the property and learn more about what makes us one of the best Minnesota wedding venues, book a tour today!
