A Wedding Story

We’ve all been to weddings where there are several receptions at the same venue. Multiple brides are walking around the venue, along with people not knowing which wedding party belongs to them.

But not on your wedding day.

On your wedding day, your wedding will be the only story told at Harvest Moon Pond.

On your wedding day, you’re the only bride in the entire venue.

You’ll have plenty of time to gather and make memories as you prepare for your big day.

It’s easy to feel relaxed at Harvest Moon Pond, even when you’re getting ready for your wedding. Maybe you throw out a blanket in the shade and have all your bridesmaids and groomsmen meet for a quick picnic lunch? Maybe you take the half-mile hiking trail and clear your mind. It’s up to you.

The entire farm is yours for the day.

The instant your friends and family arrive, they become part of your story.

A group of weeping willow trees has stood proudly for decades in this 165-year-old farm.

They are the perfect backdrop for your ceremony.

We’re not afraid of a little rain here at Harvest Moon Pond, but if you’d rather not deal with it, we have you covered.

If it rains or you’re planning a winter wedding or you’d just prefer an indoor space, it’s fine. We have that, too. And it’s yours.

 

This is Wisconsin, after all. We can’t control the weather, but you have options when you book an entire farm.

 

Our indoor venue is fully temperature-controlled and handicap accessible and available should you want it. (And you don’t have to pay extra for it.)

There’s no limit to the options your photographer will find to capture the beauty of you and your day on this unique and very special 18-acre farm. From the original Town Hall where, a hundred years ago, couples just like you came to get their marriage licenses, to the old sheep barn and pasture where long ago, cows and sheep once grazed, to the two whimsical willow trees that serve as the perfect canvas and backdrop to your outdoor ceremony – where your love story as Mr. & Mrs begins.

An old windmill overlooks the spring-fed pond and the fields where Mr. George Stevens and his family once harvested their crops. They used horses in the 1860’s, not tractors. And Lincoln was President.

That’s history that can’t be replicated in modern venues.

That’s part of the story your guests will remember.

After the ceremony, your little cousins have ditched their dress-up shoes and are playing tag in the vast open field. Your guests are catching up in the courtyard, strung with lights, fire roaring. There is no one shuffling your guests out of the courtyard for the next wedding party. The courtyard is yours for the entire night.

When it comes to amenities, this fully renovated barn has everything a modern venue has.

But a modern venue doesn’t have everything this barn has.

You glance up and see the bell that rang over 125 years ago to let farmers know dinner was ready. Instead of hard-working farmers coming back to eat, your friends and family are there, celebrating your love.

Before you cut the cake, you look around the barn full of people you know and love and see them relaxed, having fun, happy – just what you envisioned.

You know that your story wouldn’t be complete without them.

And as you dance the night away, your guests linger, not wanting to leave this magical wedding – your magical wedding.

And as you finally say goodbye to your guests, they all tell you they’ll never forget the amazing time they had at your wedding. And you believe them. You’ll never forget this day, either.
