Birch Hill Barn is the best of the best. It's affordable, clean, drop dead gorgeous, and comes with two of the most fabulous people I've ever had the pleasure of working with. Jacqueline and Russ went above and beyond to make our day special and one of a kind. Emails were answered within an hour (and there were quite a few!), and I felt special and valued, even though there were so many things going on during the weekend. The barn is a masterpiece. It's hidden back in the fields of Wisconsin, and the quiet helps create the ambiance of peaceful solitude for your wedding and the rest of the world. I never imagined how or why that feeling would matter, but it makes all of the difference in the world. The barn, as a venue, you just have to see for yourself. It's perfect. There's no other way to describe it. Jacqueline and Russ helped squash any fears I may have had about chaos, or things going awry. They felt like old friends by the end of day. Jacqueline made sure I had everything I needed, and made sure I didn't have an inkling of anything that may have not gone according to plan. Every bride needs a Jacqueline in their life.

My husband and I were overjoyed when we discovered this venue. The owners are creative, great at communication, flexible, and kind. I would recommend this venue to any bride looking for an outdoor/indoor wedding in the Twin Cities and Western Wisconsin. Not only is the barn gorgeous, and the property stunning, it was the best quality and value for our modest budget. This space includes a quaint bridal suite, on-site bathrooms that were nicer than our own, plenty of space for guests and vendors and acres of land for stunning photographs. But what made this venue perfect for us was the ease of working with the owners of Birch Hill Barn. They answered all of our questions, were available for multiple tours and made us feel at home! I have no hesitation in giving 5 stars!

We celebrated our daughter's wedding at Birch Hill Barn on September 26, 2015. Birch Hill Barn hosted the ceremony, reception, dinner and square dancing. The setting and facilities were exceptionally beautiful. Jacqueline and her husband had the barn in perfect condition and were completely prepared for us. Every detail was as planned and all of our expectations were exceeded. Our daughter and her fiancé noted often how attentive Jacqueline was with all communication prior to their event and during the wedding day. We booked Jacqueline for day of services and she was simply wonderful. Not one time did we wonder how things were going, were there any problems or concerns. She handled everything seamlessly. She is well organized, a great communicator and a delight to work with. Our family would very highly recommend Birch Hill Barn as the perfect venue to begin your married life. We were very Blessed!!

We can’t say enough positive things about not only the venue, but the owners as well! We discovered the venue as a fluke; neither one of us is from Wisconsin and we don’t have family there but we decided just to look around. We were absolutely HOOKED from the moment we arrived! Obviously, the property is beyond gorgeous. The barn is so unbelievably charming, the bridal suite is decorated beautifully, and the land is breathtaking. However, Jacqueline and Russ are what sealed the deal! From the moment we met, they went out of their way to make sure our wedding day was everything we envisioned. I don’t think I ever waited longer than two hours for responses to the (many) emails I sent Jacqueline, and she always had really helpful answers! Not only that, but they were also in contact with our caterer (without being asked) about tables, set up, etc. which took a ton of work off of my plate! When we arrived on our wedding day, we were greeted and congratulated right away. They checked in with us throughout the day without being overbearing. They were so attentive to little details!! Jacqueline moved my flowers out of the heat so they wouldn’t wilt before the ceremony, they did all of the set up and staging for the ceremony and reception, customized the bridal suite just for us, and drove us up on the hill to get some great pictures. They were both so extremely helpful and wonderful, we honestly could NOT have asked for better people to work with!! We consider ourselves truly blessed to have had our wedding there!

This barn is absolutely perfect for an elegant, rustic wedding. The beauty of the place does all the work for you. There's room for lawn games and an outdoor ceremony in addition to a fire pit that's ready for s'mores when the dancing is done for the evening. If you prefer an indoor ceremony, that's also an option. The lower level is perfect for a cocktail hour while the upstairs is set up for dinner. One recommendation if you decide to book this venue (which you absolutely should): Do not pass up on Jacqueline's help. The day-of planning package that she offers meant that absolutely everything was taken care of for a worry-free experience for the whole family. Jacqueline and her husband are there for everything you need and are wonderful people. If you're planning a wedding on a budget, local vendors near Birch Hill are a great way to save a few bucks. Ask Jacqueline for recommendations!
