The Croix-View Farm is a historic wedding barn for couples looking to get married in the greater Minneapolis, Minnesota area. This vintage country venue features an authentic barn space with wooden interior and chandeliers, in addition to an outdoor ceremony location. Couples can find this venue just across the St. Croix River in Wisconsin, approximately an hour’s drive from downtown Minneapolis.
Facilities and Capacity
As many as 300 guests can join couples in celebrating their wedding at the Croix-View Farm. Couples can host their wedding ceremony in the scenic outdoor site on this farm’s property. The setting is a quaint wooded area, with grass underfoot and mature trees all around. Sunlight filters in through the leaves of the trees and shines down upon couples as they begin their lives together beneath the white structure of a wedding arbor. Guests look on from hay bales or benches as the ceremony takes place. From there, couples can take pictures along the banks of the scenic St. Croix River, located only a mile and a half from this venue. They can also stage wedding portraits on the beautiful farm property, or with the historic barn in the background. This authentic barn, now used for events, is over 100 years old. Although the interior has been renovated to accommodate weddings and other celebrations, it still maintains many original features and all of its timeless charm. Wooden beams support the cathedral ceiling and sparkling crystal chandeliers hang down from the rafters. The floors are a polished hardwood, updated to keep everyone’s shoes and feet safe. This barn also features a built-in bar and a cozy country sitting area outside of the private bridal suite.
Couples can relax in the country chic bridal suite while preparing for the exciting day ahead. Event staff at this venue help to take care of setup and cleanup. They also offer event planning services before the wedding arrives. Other services offered by this venue to couples include:
Bartenders provided by the venue can tend the bar at a couple’s reception. The bar is built of wood and tin, adding to the rustic and vintage style of this barn. These bartenders serve outside alcohol provided by the couple or caterer, which ensures that couples are drinking what they love on their wedding day.
Any wedding event can be hosted at the Croix-View Farm. The staff welcomes couples for ceremonies and receptions, but also for bridal showers, elopements, engagement parties, or rehearsal dinners. The barn has a built-in dance floor for couples’ events, and additional items can be found through this venue for a wedding. These items include:

Must see venue
We have watched Sara & Jerod put a lot of sweat and dedication into creating Croix-View, turning it from a working farm into diamond in the rough type Wedding Venue. The owners are fabulous to work with, easy going & aim to please. We love our long days at the farm. It has become one of my favorite places to work! As a photographer, this place has the dreamiest light, all day long. The Getting Ready Suite is the perfect size for a mid-size wedding party. The ceremony site has HUGE beautiful trees. The venue itself has lots of room to spread out, yet intimate enough that you can visit with everyone & have fun with your family and friends.Sent on 01/14/2019

Our wedding was the best day of our lives, in large part because of Croix-View Farm and Sara. The barn is breath-taking. Guests were raving how much they loved the venue the entire night, and weeks after too. It was the perfect place to have fun, enjoy games outdoors and close the night on an incredible dance floor. Sara was extremely helpful and did everything in her power to make the day perfect. Her number one focus throughout the entire experience was making the day as fun and stress-free as possible for the bride and groom, which is exactly what she delivered. We couldn’t recommend Croix-View Farm more!Sent on 08/27/2019
