Rustic Oaks Barn Wedding Venue Open House

Minnesota Barn Wedding
Venue Open House

Rustic Oaks is a wedding venue located on 40 acres of riverfront property. Their historic barn and inn is an ideal setting for couples who want to blend modern amenities with the charm of history and space to roam. If you’ve read my blog for a while, you’ll remember a few weddings that I’ve shot there — check out Samantha & Cade or Brady & Brianna!  One of my favorite things about this venue is the way the owners and staff take care of their couples. No detail is overlooked and their hearts are amazing! Every year on Valentine’s Day, Rustic Oaks opens their doors for an intimate, cozy open house. Smaller wedding expos like these are an ideal place for couples to gather wedding inspiration and talk to vendors at greater length, a welcome relief from the overwhelming chaos of larger wedding shows.

The barn was full of creative energy and beauty! The White House Co. and Love Always Floral created the perfect setting for a Valentine’s Day event. Blush pinks and reds mixed with twinkle lights and balloons, and let’s not forget the Sandy’s Donut wall.
