Beautiful Outdoor Spaces
I am so happy we decided to host our wedding at Vennebu Hill! The views are amazing, the reception space is beautiful, and the staff was incredibly helpful. Katie was quick to answer our many (many) questions, and made sure the whole event went off without a hitch. The highlight for me was our outdoor ceremony, which was visited by a butterfly, squirrel and deer that bounded through the fields behind us! This venue is a very special place.Sent on 08/16/2019
Vennebu Hill's reply:Your ceremony was magic! The readings, the duet, the bluegrass music, the love & support, and Mother Nature's little details. It was a perfect day! Congratulations and thank you for this wonderful thank you note.

best decision we ever made
There are not enough words in the world to explain how perfect Vennebu hill is. When we say perfect, we mean ALL of it is perfect. From the view, the staff, the chandelier, the tables, the décor, the bar... ALL of it!
We booked Vennebu hill in the beginning stages of it being built. When we booked, it was back in January where Katie had met us in the cold with a binder of what the vision was. I knew INSTANTLY that this is where I was going to be married – many people laughed at me asking, “you got married somewhere that you didn’t even see?” I will admit, it was a big leap of faith but it was the best leap we have ever taken and one that has turned into a memory that will last forever.
From the beginning stages, to the middle, to the final stage, Katie was there for the ride supporting us and answering all and every question a bride and groom have to ask. Katie is every bride’s dream as she is there to reassure, support, and answer all that you need leading up to your day as well as the day of. On the day of, she was there ready to go ensuring that our day was perfect. It was evident she wanted our day to go as perfectly as we did! The next day, we met Katie back at the venue to pack up and as she helped us finalize and pack everything up, she was also getting ready for another event (she is truly wonder woman). It took us about 20 minutes to say goodbye and leave the venue as we got THAT attached to her, her staff, and the venue!
We still have guests asking us about Vennebu Hill and how we got so lucky. The views were breathtaking, the venue and details inside and outside are unbelievable, and the staff made all of us feel so welcome and taken care of. For a side note for all couples, our dream was to have a wedding outside (which we did end up doing due to great weather!). We loved the views of an outdoor ceremony but what we even loved more was the fact that if the weather didn’t cooperate, the inside was just as beautiful. I do not know any other venue where you can say your plan A and plan B are JUST as good! They were both amazing! I still don’t know how we got so lucky to have this amazing venue on our wedding day and we also don’t know how we got even luckier to work with Katie and her staff at this venue. We truly and whole heartedly hope that every couple gets as lucky as we did and gets married here. It was the best decision we have ever made.

Where do I even begin. We toured Vennebu in March 2018 before the venue was complete and fell in love. The facility, the views, and the character were everything we wanted. To top it off, Katie and the management team are out of this world amazing. Throughout the planning process Katie was there for us every steep of the way. We live out of state and she always tried to make herself available when we wanted to make last minute trips to see the facility. If she wasn't available she would send someone else. She understood my nervous out-of-state bride vibes. On our snowy April 27th wedding day, Katie and her team found time to check in and make sure our bride-tourage was doing okay. Katie even found a frame for a poster that was gifted to us the night before! My heart skipped a beat when she showed me. The thought and heart that has been put into Vennebu is unreal. We knew as soon as we saw the property Vennebu was the perfect place for our "Wisconsin" wedding but to hear our guests talk over and over about how breathtaking the venue was yet how comfortable they were is priceless. Thank you Katie and the Vennebu team for being apart of our perfect day. We cannot wait to come back for one of your public events! - Mitch & HeatherSent on 08/01/2019
