About Us

Emerald Ridge Weddings & Receptions is a campsite with a barn and banquet hall for couples’ weddings in the greater Minneapolis, Minnesota area. This outdoorsy and rustic venue offers two indoor spaces with the option of hosting an outdoor wedding ceremony. This venue can be found in Menomonie, Wisconsin, approximately one hour and 20 minutes from downtown Minneapolis.

Facilities and Capacity
Couples can invite up to 400 guests to their wedding at Emerald Ridge Weddings & Receptions. On this 360-acre estate, couples have many options for outdoor ceremonies. The most popular is the Grandview Point Ceremony. Couples can marry on an overlook with a view of treetops and rolling landscape in the distance. Surrounding this overlook are a few mature trees and plenty of open grassy space. The space itself is paved with a low railing and a few columns. White chairs can be set up on the grass to form an aisle for couples, as the sun sets behind them on their wedding day. From there, couples can choose to host their reception in the Rustic Oaks venue or the Legacy Barn. The Rustic Oaks venue is a pavilion-style building of natural wood, with two walls and two open sides. A roof with criss-crossing wooden beams protects couples and guests from rain and other unpleasant weather elements. The floor is paved with concrete and expands out from under the roof, making a perfect location for a cocktail hour or for venue overflow. The Legacy Barn Reception Building is a large white wooden building, painted to add modern class and elegance to this country venue. The Reception Building has three walls and one missing, with just support beams in its place, giving couples and guests a great view of their scenic surroundings.

  • CANNOT RECOMMEND THIS PLACE ENOUGH. Teresa and Bruce are amazing. Literally brought our day together. They do all the little things that a bride and groom don’t want to worry about on wedding day. The venue is beautiful. Great that the ceremony is in a barn. Then the reception is in the building right below. Their staff is super helpful and professional. You can really tell they’ve been doing this a long time and love it. They stayed all night to ensure everything was running smoothly. Some of the accommodations they offer (for little to no fee) are things I have never seen or heard of another venue doing. This place is every thing you need/want and more.
