We landed on Gale Woods Farm in Minnetrista, MN. I actually had called sometime in February or March to see what they had left for the fall and there was really nothing. I finally scheduled a day to meet with the 'wedding lady' and check it out. We immediately fell in love... Set the date and gave them a check that day!
May 7, 2011 will be the big day!
There are so many great things about the place. The ceremony will be out back of their pavilion, which is a big red pole barn, and will look over the lake there. The inside is basically a blank slate and we can really do whatever we want (I already have some good ideas). It's quiet and private. They also have a volleyball net set up and a fire pit. They even have some farm animals! Hopefully it will all go well and the skies will stay clear for some fun outside.
I really wish I would have taken some photos while we were out there. Maybe we'll get out there again sometime this summer. It's not the longest drive, but it's about 40-45 minutes away.
A bonus... next door is one of our favorite places, Big Stone Mini Golf! Hopefully we can sneak over for some amazing wedding photos!
