Our Magical Wedding at the Swan Barn Door

The Swan Barn Door was our venue from the moment we laid eyes on it. It is a magical venue that reflects the beauty surrounding it. The barn itself is draped in elegance and beauty - from the chandeliers made from the roots of trees down to the swan intricately designed into the wood floors this venue was whimsical, elegant and everything we dreamed it would be. It is family built and has a lot of heart, including in its team. Kari was prompt with communication and her daughter was also present and extremely helpful the day prior to the wedding when we had access to the venue to set up. We chose to have a Friday wedding that included the day before package which worked out splendidly for us. I emailed Kari the week prior to our wedding and received all the answers I needed regarding venue access and last minute final detail questions. The Swan Barn Door catering (Kamado Flo) was absolutely delicious. From all of our guests I heard nothing but praise for the venue and food. It was the easiest and one of the most impactful choices of our wedding and from the bottom of our hearts we are grateful to the Swan Family and their team.

Beautiful and amazing venue

We chose The Swan Barn Door for its stunning views (indoors and outdoors) but mainly due to the fact that the owners, Kari and Paul, are very easy going and great to work with. They are very accommodating and respectful of your wants and needs. We highly recommend this venue to anyone!

Magical wedding experience!

Right from the first time we visited the venue we knew this was the perfect venue! The barn is beautiful and unique and has such detail that really leaves you in awe.
We got married at the Swan Barn Door in August outdoors behind the barn and the reception inside the barn. The outdoor ceremony was shaded which left our guests comfortable and the sound system was fantastic allowing everyone to hear (rare in an outdoor setting). The Swan family and staff made the entire day run so smoothly that we didn't have to worry about anything. The food, service, venue, and amenities were all amazing!
Amenities: air-conditioned (huge plus for summer barn weddings!), indoor bathrooms, ability to move wedding indoors if weather is not permitting, second story balcony giving extra room for guests to mingle away from music, outdoor wrap around patio perfect for cocktail hour and before wedding hangout.
Food & Drinks: Affordable and delicious! Also offers pizzas for later in reception cooked fresh from their fire brick ovens.
Photos: Our photographer, Carmina Rose Photography, had so much fun with the rustic and elegant setting of the venue! All the photos turned out amazing.
Location: one mile from Chula vista resort and Wisconsin Dells that made this venue convenient for us and out of town guests.
Overall, all guests and wedding party really enjoyed their experience at the venue. Everyone has told us just how magical the entire venue and day was that we are extremely happy we went with the Swan Barn Door!
