    Beautiful, charming, full of options/amenities, and an easy-to-work-with venue owner. Yes, please. I toured a handful of places in MN before I signed up for the Barn at Ballard Creek. Other venues were either too expensive for what you get, the people weren't as approachable or as communicative, or as beautiful location-wise. I love the big red barn, the cottage to get ready in, the cows, the flowers, the big tree where I was married, and more. There's plenty of parking. It's clean. Lindsey helped me figure out how to make the wedding work for my vision and budget. I like that I wasn't forced to pick a specific caterer too. 5 stars all around. Have your event here! It's perfect.

  • Great Venue!

    This was an amazing venue. Everything was super cute and beautiful. You could have your entire wedding out here or just the reception. There was plenty of space on the property, while also giving a close-knit, family environment feel. Pictures here turned out beautifully. They have a small suite for the bridal party where the girls can get ready. The owners were great and quick to respond. Tim and Lindsey were super easy to work with. She was always super energetic and willing to help me with last minute solutions. Would definitely recommend to anyone in the Mankato, MN area who’s looking for a wedding venue!!
