Barn Wedding Venues in Wisconsin | Wisconsin Barn Weddings

Barn weddings are among my favorite.  I just love the contrast of elegance and casualness that inevitably develops.  And, let’s be serious – any couple willing to get a little dirty on their wedding day is a couple willing to have fun!

It seems though that finding a barn venue for a farm style wedding is an exhaustive search with very few resources.  So, I’ve compiled my list of favorite barn or barn-like venues throughout Wisconsin.  I’ll add to this as new ones come to my attention (so comment below if you know of one!) I hope it helps those of you planning!

And, I hope it goes without saying that I would be THRILLED to shoot at any one of these wedding venues!

    Hi, The Still Farm, barn venue for weddings and receptions, is located in Downing Wisconsin. Our 1920′s barn sits in a valley of farmed fields and pastures. My husband and I purchase the farm in 2011 and were married there. Our guests enjoyed our rustic wedding so much, that we have opened our doors to other couples wanting the same experience. We are open May through the end of September.
    Thanks,
    Cindy Kahut
    Owner,
    The Still Farm
