The Best Wisconsin Wedding Venues

Since 2011, we’ve actively compiled a list of great, accessible, unique wedding vendors and venues in and around Wisconsin – including Wedding Barns, Camps, Vineyards, Art Galleries, Parks, and a Lighthouse! We’re always connecting with more great people and places that cater to weddings in their own unique ways. While we absolutely love backyard, one-of-a-kind wedding venues with awesome tents, we know that it’s not an option for everyone. So here are a few of our other favorite venues and vendors to help you in your planning! And if you are dreaming of a Camp Wedding Location or here for an Intimate Wedding Location (less than 75 people), click those links!

OUR THREE wild + wonderful KIDS,

we're inspired by...

the outdoors, deep conversations, farm-to-table dinners, evenings under market lights, creeking with our kids, local/organic foodie culture,  slow travel, deep blue lakes, rooms with natural light flooding in, discovering hidden gems, coffee shop culture 

we are ray + kelly.

This is our crew. We've been raising them up right alongside this business of ours. Each one has been along with us to weddings and sessions - just in Kelly's belly. Don't worry, we won't actually bring them with - they're a little louder now. ;)
