For all the newly engaged couples out there, here’s your guide to all our favorite wedding venues in Cottage Grove. From large ceremonies to small, traditional décor to extravagant, we have a memorable space for you!
Hope Glen Farm – Most Unique Experience
Hope Glen Farm’s restored Civil War-era barn and picturesque farm offers a gorgeous location for a wedding. The expansive farm and its unique amenities like the peaceful pasture for a ceremony, the large pavilion for a reception under the stars, the complimentary luxury couples suites and more make for a truly unforgettable wedding. Couples can spend their wedding evening in the treehouse suite, a 1,200 square foot suite situated in an enormous oak tree, where they can wind down in front of the fireplace or the jacuzzi, hunt for the secret, hidden room or gaze at the stars through the rooftop telescope.
John P. Furber Farm – Most Elegant
If arched ceilings, natural landscapes and rustic elegance is your style, then Furber Farm is the place for you. With enough room for up to 500 people, indoor and outdoor spaces, and a game room for the kiddos (or fun-loving adults), your wedding is sure to be the talk of the town. The staff at Furber Farm will be right by your side from the start of planning to the end of
your special day to make the experience as stress-free as possible.
River Oaks Golf Course and Event Center – Best Overall Package
River Oaks is always a great option for a wedding during any season. Their packages for food, decor, refreshments, activities and more make it easy to plan out and put on your wedding. With stunning views of the Mississippi River, your guests are sure to have a great time. In the warmer months, you can even set up bocce ball, corn hole and an outdoor par on the patio area just outside the clubhouse.
Ravine Landing – Most Intimate
From April through October, let Ravine Landing in Cottage Grove Ravine Regional Park host your wedding. With space for 80 people standing or 50 seated, you can have an intimate ceremony surrounded by the beautiful scenery of the park. Take your photos in the nature of the trails or the lake next to the building. Cater in your dining from your favorite restaurant or have a food truck attend for a fun alternative.
VFW – Most Affordable
The rental hall at the Cottage Grove VFW is a great space for weddings both large and small. With a capacity of about 200 and the ability to decorate the space however you would like, the flexibility of the VFW is an added bonus. This rental space even comes along with some added social service – supporting Veterans! Just look for the big red barn.
