A Friend's House as an outdoor farm Wedding Venue in Fargo

A Friend’s House is the perfect spot for a small town wedding feel. Located north of Moorhead, MN, A Friend’s House has plenty of space for a beautiful outdoor wedding. The venue is intimate with a gazebo and small chapel on the land. It is perfect for an outdoor wedding with plenty of space for all of your loved ones. Not to mention, the fields that surround the venue, giving the perfect view for those summer sunsets!



Oxbow Country Club 

Oxbow Country Club is one of my favorite wedding venues in Fargo.  Although, I am biased because it is where I got married!  Located just south of Fargo, they have a beautiful new clubhouse with options for indoor and outdoor wedding ceremonies. The new clubhouse is surrounded by the beautiful green golf course and bridges over the water. Only a golf cart ride away, you will find the older part of the course with huge trees and beautiful greenery, perfect for romantic photos. You also don’t need a membership to rent the space!



The Pines Weddings & Events

The Pines is one of the newest options for local wedding venues and is a gorgeous addition to the area. Located just south-east of Fargo, The Pines offers a large indoor wedding venue for both ceremonies and receptions. It is one of the few venues in the area that holds up to 400 guests in an air conditioned and heated building! It is perfect for large weddings year around.



Hjemkomst Center for a unique Wedding Venue in Fargo

The Hjemkomst Center

If you are looking for a unique wedding venue, look no further than the Hjemkomst Center in Moorhead, MN. The Hjemkomst Center is one of my favorite indoor wedding reception options in the Fargo – Moorhead area. With features such as the full sized viking ship inside and the stave church outside, your guests will be amazed every direction they look! Not to mention, it is an affordable option as well!



Avalon Events Center

The Avalon Events Center has something for everyone.  They offer ballrooms that fit anywhere from an intimate 80 guests, all the way to a full party of over 500 guests! Whether your wedding will be big or small, they have space to fit everyone. The Avalon will give your wedding a high-end ballroom look, while still leaving plenty of room for your own personal touch! The Avalon also gets extra points because it’s one of the wedding venues in Fargo city limits. That makes it that much closer to hotels for your guests.



Courtyard By Marriott

The Courtyard By Marriott is a great hotel ballroom option for a wedding!  Their ballroom looks very high end and they provide some amazing decorations. They also have a bridal sweet that is perfect for getting ready. The biggest bonus of this venue is that your guests can book rooms and stay on site!  The ballroom has a separate entrance from the hotel, but they are attached by a hallway. Your celebrate with stay intimate while providing your guests a good reason to stay until the night is over!



Lakeside wedding ceremony in Detroit Lakes

Holiday Inn – Detroit Lakes – Lakefront

Fargo is part of North Dakota, which is a large farming state. However, Fargo is just across the river from Minnesota, and of course, Minnesota is known for its lakes! It may seem intimidating to pick from the 10,000 lakes in Minnesota, but there is an easy choice just outside of the Fargo area. The Holiday Inn Lakefront in Detroit Lakes, MN is the perfect lakeside wedding venue. You can get married on the lakeside dock and your guests rest their toes in the sand!



Summer Wedding at Carlos Creek Winery

Carlos Creek Winery

Carlos Creek Winery may not be located in the Fargo area, but it is worth the drive! Once you see Carlos Creek Winery, you won’t think twice about the drive from Fargo, ND. The winery has the perfect outdoor wedding ceremony site under a canopy of tall trees.  After enjoying the summer air, your guests can party the night away inside their reception hall.  This venue is worth the visit before crossing it off your list!
