Our Story

This beautiful farm has been in Lisa's family for generations and is home to innumerable memories and experiences. The connections made with the environment are memories that never fade and were taught by Lisa’s grandmother who was a dairy farmer. Her grandmother and mother helped to grow Lisa’s love of nature, gardening, farming, and preserving history. There was nothing quite like spending cold spring days with her grandfather tapping the maple trees for syrup, then witnessing the magic of an annual trillium wildflower bloom each spring, as well as fishing with her grandfather and her siblings in the creeks. As a curator, transforming the magical property into a place where others can make lifelong memories while preserving its historical, natural state, was Lisa's number one priority.

Trillium Creek Wedding and Event Barn sits on the land of Reinke Meadows just outside of Wausau, Wisconsin, but this particular barn hasn't always been there. In 2015, owner and founder Lisa Reinke saw the current barn at a nearby farm; this barn was nearly an exact replica of the original dairy barn on the farm, used by her grandparents. As a curator of craftsmanship, Lisa couldn't bear the loss of another iconic 1890s Pomeranian barn, to be sold for reclaimed lumber. She then began the arduous process of relocating the barn to its current resting place. Relocating a 100 ton barn in one piece is no small task and required the construction of a temporary bridge across the Trillium Creek and took the crew three full days to reach its resting spot.

With the relocation complete, construction and renovations to the barn and surrounding property began in 2016. Having hosted her wedding on the property, Lisa had invaluable insights into what is required for a wedding event to happen without a hitch, especially at a rustic wedding venue. Lisa wanted to keep the authentic farmstead charm while adding all of the modern amenities people have come to expect. She kept all of the original barn boards and metal roof to ensure the rustic exterior look and replaced the windows. Hot running water, beautiful indoor restrooms, an on-site catering kitchen, gorgeous changing rooms, and elegant lighting fixtures are just some of the things that set Trillium Creek Wedding and Event Barn apart from other barn wedding venues.

No detail was overlooked in making the Trillium Creek Wedding and Event Barn the ideal venue to host your dream wedding. From the barn's in-floor heating on the lower level, the elegantly designed bride and groom changing rooms, to the stunning landscaping and up-cycling of antiques, we are positive you will never want to leave once you step foot onto the property. There is even a fire pit behind the barn, with our signature up-cycled furniture, overlooking the lush Wisconsin fields, forests, and creek, perfect for a s’mores bar.

Other additions include a multi-functional covered pavilion adjacent to the barn perfect for the cocktail hour and outdoor games, with a bar made from lumber harvested from the woods and charming up-cycled benches for guests to relax. The covered pavilion is an additional option for the ceremony location. And there are endless specially curated photography locations around the venue—including a handmade bridge across Trillium Creek!

While our wedding season stretches from May to October, the work never stops at Trillium Creek. During the off-season, Lisa and her family are hard at work, making improvements based on customer feedback. Making your wedding day special is paramount, and your feedback is invaluable in doing so! Our motto is, “Honoring the Past, Creating YOUR Future!” We hope to see you soon!

    Accommodating!!!

    We got married on August 8th, 2020, in the middle of the pandemic. Lisa was BEYOND accommodating!! We worked together to make our day absolutely perfect. We loved having back up plans for rain: outside on the lawn, under the pavilion or inside the barn. To make sure we were socially distancing, 2 large tents were put up right outside the barn so tables could be spread out. It worked PERFECTLY! If you can't tell from the pictures, this place is GORGEOUS! We are starting to get pictures back and are so in love with them! Our guests are still telling us how much fun they had and how beautiful it was!
    I could go on and on about how Lisa made our day everything we dreamed it would be. We highly recommend Trillium Creek! Thank you Lisa for everything!
