Facilities and Capacity
Sugarland can accommodate up to 300 guests throughout their two event spaces — one indoor and one uncovered outdoor. The Wedding Oak Tree is over 150 years old and stands at the center of the estate. The branches of this tree provide ample shade for your guests while they watch you exchange vows beneath a majestic canopy. The 400-square foot Barn is Sugarland’s indoor location with an open-air feel. Perfect for couples who want a rustic style wedding, the Barn has grand sliding doors, a breathtaking view of the Wisconsin countryside, a custom bar made from barn floor planks, and custom wrought iron chandeliers with dimmers to make your wedding even more romantic. It also has some modern amenities, like a licensed commercial kitchen and air-conditioned bathrooms.
The farm house and the cottage on Sugarland’s property can accommodate up to 18 guests comfortably, creating a perfect space for the couple and their wedding party to stay and get ready.
Sugarland can provide couples with space for bridal showers, ceremonies, engagement parties, and receptions. Chairs and linens are available for use during your event, and the staff at Sugarland is happy to provide you with services that include accommodations, cake, event planning, and event rentals. Sugarland’s wedding coordinator, Nancy, and her team are there to help you every step of the way — from day one ‘til the minute you say “I do.” Set-up, take down, and clean-up are available, as well, so you won’t need to overstress about whether or not the decorations will look nice or who will handle them once the reception’s over.

Incredible venue, exactly what I had always dreamt of. Effortless elegance are the only words I can use to possibly convey how amazing our wedding was here! Nothing extra is needed to beautify the space, it's gorgeous all on it's own. Nancy was amazing to work with and so incredibly accommodating. A beautiful, rustic venue that lends itself to whatever theme you have in mind.

An amazing venue! It is such a beautiful property and was perfect for our rustic barn wedding. Nancy was great to work with. She is so knowledgable about the process of planning a wedding and other vendors who are familiar with Sugarland, which was very helpful!

Our wedding was held at Sugarland in Arena,WI in July. It was a beautiful setting! We were married under the giant oak tree where the branches reached out and gave shade to our guests. Our reception was held in the newly renovated barn a few steps from the ceremony. The inside of the barn was awesome because there weren't any posts in the way, just a huge open space with rustic chandeliers. The ceiling of the barn was like the bottom of a ship flipped upside down. We were able to decorate the space to our liking and the staff and Nancy were very helpful and great to work with. I would definitely recommend this venue for those brides that like unique spaces with personality! Heidi
