Rustic barn backdrops are all the craze, and we might be partial but Pine Brook Farm has one of the most gorgeous barns to have your wedding at. Their beautiful 1914 barn has been redone to host the most magical of evenings. But, don’t just think the barn is your only option for wedding festivities at Pine Brook Farm, the hay barn up on the hill is a rustic option for a ceremony. Then, you can spend your evening dancing away at the Woodtick Lounge. Michele & the team at Pine Brook Farm will be sure your day goes off without a hitch - unless you’re hooking up the horse drawn wagon!  


And the venue that “takes the cake” for the Tying the Knot in the 2021 Best of WashCo is Heartwood Resort & Conference Center. Perfectly situated on 700 acres of northwoods beauty, this wedding destination is an expert at welcoming couples for their special day. With Hoinville lake as your backdrop for your vows, you & your guests will be in awe of the sun sparkling off the lake - it is so dreamy!
