Emerald Ridge Weddings & Receptions is a campsite with a barn and banquet hall for couples’ weddings in the greater Minneapolis, Minnesota area. This outdoorsy and rustic venue offers two indoor spaces with the option of hosting an outdoor wedding ceremony. This venue can be found in Menomonie, Wisconsin, approximately one hour and 20 minutes from downtown Minneapolis.

Facilities and Capacity
Couples can invite up to 400 guests to their wedding at Emerald Ridge Weddings & Receptions. On this 360-acre estate, couples have many options for outdoor ceremonies. The most popular is the Grandview Point Ceremony. Couples can marry on an overlook with a view of treetops and rolling landscape in the distance. Surrounding this overlook are a few mature trees and plenty of open grassy space. The space itself is paved with a low railing and a few columns. White chairs can be set up on the grass to form an aisle for couples, as the sun sets behind them on their wedding day. From there, couples can choose to host their reception in the Rustic Oaks venue or the Legacy Barn. The Rustic Oaks venue is a pavilion-style building of natural wood, with two walls and two open sides. A roof with criss-crossing wooden beams protects couples and guests from rain and other unpleasant weather elements. The floor is paved with concrete and expands out from under the roof, making a perfect location for a cocktail hour or for venue overflow. The Legacy Barn Reception Building is a large white wooden building, painted to add modern class and elegance to this country venue. The Reception Building has three walls and one missing, with just support beams in its place, giving couples and guests a great view of their scenic surroundings.

We have photographed two wedding here. One in September 2016, and one in July 2017. Both times we have witnessed the generousity, hospitality, help, kindness, and hard working spirits of Teresa and Bruce. They give everything they have and more to making days of marriage as special as possible for the bride, grooms, families, friends, vendors, and everyone involved. Thank you staff at Emerald Ridge Outdoor Weddings for being over-the-top-incredible. Your location is one of our favorite wedding photography venues.
