hi friends!!! happy Wednesday.


over the course of the last year and a half, I have had the sweet opportunity of traveling across Minnesota and Wisconsin exploring beautiful wedding venues. I have loved so many of them and would love to share some of my most favorites.




Cambridge, Minnesota



Pinewood seems to be a fan favorite, for sure in the Midwest! When I attended a styled shoot at this gorgeous venue, I loved the getting ready areas, as well as the cozy common space by the fireplace. I also admired the variety when it came to photo opportunity.



Villa Bellezza Winery

Pepin, Wisconsin



Villa Bellezza is so stunning! It is a winery along the river on the western side of Wisconsin. With the constant Italian music playing in the background and the stone on the building, I truly felt as if I was in another country. 



Woodhaven Weddings + Events

Cannon Falls, Minnesota



I visited this gorgeous venue back in March of 2022 and there was still some snow visible on the ground and nearby trees, BUUUUT it was GORGEOUS. I truly loved it and honestly gave me a similar feel that Pinewood does. I felt that there was a variety of photo opportunities but every where you turned was gorgeous. 


The Tinsmith

Madison, Wisconsin



WHAT A FUN LOCATION! I loved the Tinsmith. Being in downtown Madison, there was a lot to do nearby and a lot of photo opportunities both inside and out. 


Chankaska Creek Ranch, Winery, Distillery

Kasota, Minnesota



Chankaska Creek Winery was STUNNING. Like all the others, every where I looked it was AMAZING!!! In particular, everywhere I looked was more greenery. I loved all of the florals and the greens of the trees popping from every angle. The buildings are also just so stunning. 



The Wedding Shed on Button's Pond

Bloomer, Wisconsin



I loved this venue! Not only was I a huge fan of the ceremony space, BUUUUUT the owners. OH MY GOSH!! The owners were amazing. So kind and so helpful!


Abella Weddings and Events

Chisago City, Minnesota



Abella kind of reminds me of Woodhaven!! The reception space feels similar and the light and airy look is comparable. I love the natural light that is let in and the opportunity to explore the area within the venue.


Each of these venues vary in style whether that be a more outdoorsy location, a winery, or a more modern (light and airy) venue. The options vary, but I love them each for their own little reasons.


That's all I have for you today!! I would love to hear what your favorites are. Drop them in the comments below! Maybe my next post will be my local bucket list venue locations.
