I LOVE barn weddings! I am slightly biased, that is what we did for my own wedding and I know they have become super popular, but I see that as a good thing. That means we have a lot of barn options for wedding venues in Minnesota and some REALLY cool ones at that! Here is a list of some beautiful barn wedding venues in Minnesota. I’ll let you know how far away they are from Willmar and give you links right to their website and their Instagram to check out all of their pretty photos.
You will definitely see yourself having your wedding at one of these places! If these photos don’t make you want to have a barn wedding, I don’t know what will!
First and foremost on my list is the family farm! If you are getting married in your families barn or on the farm I want to be there to photograph it! There’s nothing more special than getting married on the family farm that’s been around for generations. The one downfall is all the work you have to put into the place for one day but I wouldn’t trade my experience for anything. In the end, the results and the memories are worth the extra work!
