VENUE AMENITIES – Harvest Moon Pond has heat and A/C so guests will be comfortable no matter what the weather is like.  We have restrooms on the main level with a baby changing station and additional restrooms in the lower level. Find more information about our Wisconsin wedding venue cost.


​PARKING/OVERNIGHT VEHICLES We have ample paved on-site parking plus an overflow parking area.  We want everyone to be safe, so we do allow guests to leave their car parked overnight at the property.  All vehicles must be removed by 9am the following day or could be subject to towing. 


ALCOHOL – ​No Client (s), guest, vendor or other person (s) is permitted to at any time bring alcoholic beverages onto the Harvest Moon Pond property (venue/parking lot/etc) as this is a direct violation of Wisconsin Law.  Violations of this law subject Harvest Moon Pond to having it’s liquor license suspended or revoked so we take this very seriously. 


BAR SERVICE –  Harvest Moon Pond holds a beer, wine & liquor license and provides all bar services for guests.  Enjoy the beverages provided by the couple, or purchase from our wide array of other beverages to enjoy.  We accept debit/credit cards and cash for purchases.  Sorry, there is no ATM on site.


VENDORS – While Harvest Moon Pond does operate the bar services, all other vendors providing services during an event are contracted by our clients. If you really enjoyed your experience with or have feedback about a specific vendor, we would love to hear about others’ experiences. The best way to let us know is to email us at

SMOKING & VAPING – Designated smoking & vaping areas include out the main building entrance and on the north side of the barn near the silo.  Smoking and vaping are prohibited on the back deck or patio.  Smoking and vaping is not permitted anywhere inside the venue, including but not limited to the dressing rooms and restrooms.  

PETS  We are pet lovers here at Harvest Moon Pond, however to ensure a clean venue, kept grounds, safety and comfort to all your guests, we do not permit guests to bring pets in the venue, on the grounds, or to be left in vehicles. Special exceptions are made for wedding couples to bring pets once approved.

OUTDOOR CEREMONIES – Harvest Moon Pond is known for our outdoor ceremony locations we offer May-October. If the couple chooses an outside ceremony, please be prepared to bring an extra layer if the temperature is a little cool. Our most popular ceremony locations are held in the grass, so please be prepared with proper footwear. In the case of inclement weather, the ceremony will be moved indoors and can be held in our upper loft area.

NURSING/PUMPING – If you have a little one you’d like to feed or pump for in private, please discuss with your host about using one of the dressing rooms in our lower level.  Please come prepared with your own insulated storage for milk as we cannot store this in our beverage coolers.

LOST ITEMS – All items left at the venue are sent home with the event hosts at the end of the evening, so please check with your event host for any missing items.  If any items are found after the conclusion of the event, we reach out to the event host to notify them the following morning. Left items that are not picked up within 7 days will be donated to a local Goodwill/St. Vincent de Paul.
