The First Look
The Enchanted Barn is a special events venue located in Hillsdale, Wisconsin. As the name suggests, this wedding spot has a mixture of rustic and elegant features that create an enchanting ambience. It is located on a 160-acre plot of land that makes it feel quiet and isolated, though it is just minutes away from the heart of Hillsdale. The grounds make the most of the natural beauty of the region, highlighting towering trees and lush green hills. The Enchanted Barn has multiple event spaces and can accommodate small or medium sized ceremonies or receptions.
The Hayloft. The Hayloft is the most popular reception spot at this venue. It is located on the second story of the barn and is constructed of wooden timbers recovered from a barn built in the 1800s. It offers views of the surrounding countryside as well as a view of the lower level of the barn. This space can accommodate up to 220 guests.
The Milking Parlor. The Milking Parlor is located on the ground floor of the barn. The space measures 58 feet by 34 feet and it has a functional fireplace where guests can gather for drinks. It can accommodate up to 80 guests on its own or it can be used in conjunction with the Hayloft to increase the total guest capacity to 300.
The South Patio. The South Patio is an outdoor ceremony site that can accommodate up to 300 guests. It is on the south side of the barn and affords views of the rolling hillside that is home to a herd of horses. Couples can choose to have the barn as the backdrop for their ceremony or use a bridal arch and have the natural greenery behind them.
The Hilltop. The Hilltop is another outdoor ceremony site. It is a flat clearing located on the top of a hill. This raised perspective gives guests a 360-degree unobstructed view of the barn and the surrounding acres. It can accommodate up to 300 guests.
