The Destination Wedding in Your Backyard
Those who have lived in the Great Lakes region for any period of time will recognize the magic in the phrase "heading up north." Everyone has that vacation spot that allows them to escape the hustle and bustle of the everyday and focus on what's really important: family, friends, and fun.
The Brule River Barn offers a way to bring this vacation magic to your wedding without leaving your guests behind. Join us on our turn-of-the-century dairy farm for the weekend (or more) to celebrate your love in the splendor of the outdoors.
Made by Family For Family
Settled via the Homestead Act in the late 1800s, the Barn originally served as frontier home then as dairy farm. In a time where modern buildings seem to come and go in a generation, the Barn is a testament to a bygone era of hard work and skill built with limited resources and technology.
Today, it continues to stand for the tenacity and sisu of the original Finnish settlers of the era. Fallen into disrepair over the years, Jill and Kirk Clemmer rescued it years ago to become their family home.
When their daughter was young, she sat in the willow tree dreaming of getting married there someday. When she got engaged in Deember 2011, her family came together with their many talents to transform the Barn into what it is today.
Jill and Kirk continue to invite couples to share in the charm of the Barn as if they were family.
