A few months ago we had the pleasure of meeting Randy and Peggy over at the new Minnesota barn wedding venue, Rolling Ridge Barn in St. Joseph, MN. We may have begged for a tour of the event spaces before they were fully ready to show us, but it was so worth it! Rolling Ridge Wedding & Event Center is a gorgeous new event center opening in October 2015.
Randy and his team have thought through every meticulous detail of a wedding day to best build their venue to accommodate the smallest to the most extravagant events. They even recently PICKED UP AND MOVED the historic barn itself so that their wedding venue could offer MORE.
Minnesota Barn Wedding Venue: The Outside
The barn itself was picked up and moved to open up the property for events. Moving the barn created a brand new space on the old barn floor that is just right for a gorgeous rustic wedding ceremony.
Inside the Barn
We were in awe walking up to the barn itself, but weren’t even prepared for what we saw on the inside! The interior of the barn is all original and rustic wood from top to bottom. Chandeliers line the peak of the barn creating an unfounded elegance and glamour. There is a loft on either end of the barn itself that creates the perfect space for a DJ or an awesome angle for bridal portraits or to just take in all the activity on the floor below.
The grounds of Rolling Ridge include many highlights including a series of outbuildings, majestic oak trees, gardens and fountains. As wedding photographers, we were in awe with the opportunities this Minnesota wedding venue presents for photos!
It Gets Better! The Bridal Suite
Last but not least, maybe our favorite part of the tour was the custom-built bridal suite. This room truly accommodates everything a bride and her posse may need on a wedding day. Everything from a double vanity to full-length mirrors, a mini-fridge, ample seating and even a full bathroom with shower are included in this gorgeous suite for the bride.
If you are looking for a rustic – yet glamorous barn venue for your big day, Rolling Ridge Wedding and Events has what you are looking for (and probably more)! We are helping put together an open house for this venue on October 9th from 4pm-8pm. Not only will the barn be open to tour, but a list of local vendors will also be there helping us put on a styled photoshoot so you can see all the action of a real event first-hand!
We would love to see you there!
