The Wildwood Barn & Cottage is a charming rural outdoor wedding venue nestled in the countryside of Waterloo, Wisconsin. Now in its third generation, this family-owned farm is an ideal setting for peaceful weekend weddings. With planning assistance and overnight accommodations, this lovely location is a well-appointed site for celebrations small and large.

Facilities and Capacity

This elegant venue was designed to host rustic, eco-friendly celebrations. The rich history of the farm adds a sense of unique authenticity to events. Hidden amid 35 acres of pastoral land, the farm offers couples a tranquil oasis to celebrate new beginnings. Over 6,000 square feet of indoor space means soon-to-be-weds can plan an extravagant event no matter the weather. The happy couple can exchange vows beneath an ornate brass chandelier in the traditional 100-year-old barn. Alternatively, there are plenty of enchanting spaces throughout the grounds suitable for open-air ceremonies. Tented receptions are possible against the backdrop of the inspiring farm, with a maximum capacity of 200 guests. A number of outhouses such as the milking parlor add to the unique offerings of The Wildwood Barn & Cottage. This antique building has been updated to include a 40-foot barrel bar, ideal for rustic celebrations. There are designated spaces for both sides of the wedding party to prepare. As well as a get-ready space, the cottage serves as a quaint honeymoon suite for the newlyweds on their first night as a married couple. This romantic property features lovely antique decor, cozy sleeping arrangements, and modern amenities.

Services Offered

The venue’s staff will plant a tree in honor of the happy couple on their wedding weekend. The rental of the venue includes three-day access so soon-to-be-weds have plenty of time to bring their vision to life. This includes two nights of accommodation in the on-site cottage for the happy couple. Other guest lodgings are available in nearby towns within a 10-mile radius of the venue. In addition to handcrafted bars and converted outbuildings, the farm has a range of event items to offer. The team can supply tents, furniture, lighting, and their range of vintage decor adds unique, historic character. The team welcomes outside vendors so couples can put their own individual spin on the celebrations. Soon-to-be-weds can bring in their own alcohol and have full use of the 10 cubic foot freezer to store ice and galvanized steel bins to keep beverages icy cold. On-site hair and makeup services are also available, further streamlining the planning process for couples.

    This place is a must to see. You will not be disappointed.

    This place is gorgeous. It is the perfect place to have a wedding. Everything all in one place. It's a photographers dream. The owners Nate and Tiffany are an absolute treat to work with. The entire experience was wonderful. The cottage for the girl's was perfect. The groom's garage was a hit for the men. The guests had such a fun time and it's nice they don't have to travel. You can't imagine the views they are stunning. We we were beyond pleased with the entire day.

    Best Outdoor Wedding Venue

    The Wildwood Barn and Cottage is a DREAM outdoor wedding venue!! I fell in love the moment we took our first tour. It is definitely a sight to see for yourself on how amazingly beautiful the venue is! Words cannot describe and pictures cannot do justice on how gorgeous Wildwood Barn and Cottage is. The venue has a charming characteristic with antique decorations all around. There are so many different areas guests can enjoy and games to entertain themselves with as they wait during the cocktail hours. I have to mention that the bathroom smells amazing, the bathroom!!
    Tiffany and Nate are absolutely amazing to work with! They are quick to reply to my endless questions during the wedding planning process and right before the wedding day. They made sure my wedding ran smoothly even with the unexpected early morning rain shower which changed the ceremony plans and transporting so many pumpkins outside to inside for the aisle. Tiffany and Nate has such a positive vibe and want to accommodate the bride and groom. Such as, the enjoyable the golf cart rides, which helps limit walking in heels (thank goodness!), to take pictures in many breathtaking locations around the venue!
    I had all of my guests expressed how beautiful the venue is and how welcoming Tiffany and Nate are as they arrive to the venue. Everything was perfect and I wouldn’t want to have my wedding anywhere else. I love their wedding tradition to plant a tree on their farmstead to honor our marriage. It just made everything so much more special.
