Outdoor Wedding Ceremony Site

Outdoor Wedding Ceremony Site

De Novo Barn is the perfect setting for the outdoor wedding ceremony you have always dreamed of. Grounds designed for outdoor weddings surround our beautifully crafted, Amish-built barn for an intimate and elegant setting for your special day.

Starting at noon on the day of your wedding, you will have full access to De Novo Barn, the schoolhouse, and the grounds. As you are spending the morning relaxing before your big day, De Novo staff will already be at the barn, meeting your chosen vendors as they arrive, finishing final preparations and ensuring everything is set and on schedule for your wedding day. Spend the morning getting your hair and makeup done, and then make your way to the Barn using your own transportation, or let our authentic trolley pick you up and transport you to De Novo Barn in style.

Once at the barn, our authentic, circa 1900s restored schoolhouse will be available as a private preparation area for the bride and bridal party. The bride and her bridesmaids can relax, put the finishing touches on their makeup, and have lunch delivered or catered in. While the bride is enjoying the schoolhouse and all its amenities, the groom and his groomsmen are welcome to the lower level of the barn, which functions as the grooms' quarters during the hours before your wedding.

At De Novo Barn, a memorable photo opportunity waits for you around every corner. Our grounds are filled with rustic charm and elegant touches that are sure to be the perfect backdrop for each special moment captured on camera. Whether you're preserving memories of your first look, your wedding party or are taking pictures of you and your partner, De Novo Barn is a photographer's favorite - full of unforgettable and unique photo ops that will provide lifetime memories.

As your wedding time approaches, your guests will arrive at De Novo Barn and be directed to their seats ahead of the ceremony. As the sounds of music fill the air, the bride will follow her wedding party out of the schoolhouse and down the aisle to the platform overlooking the picturesque Oneota Valley. There, she will meet her forever.

The moment has arrived.
