We’re excited to share with you an absolute favorite outdoor wedding venue: Mayowood Stone Barn, nestled in the picturesque Rochester, Minnesota. If you’re on the hunt for a breathtaking location to capture those special moments for your clients, look no further.
Mayowood Stone Barn is a Treasure Trove of History and Craftsmanship
Every stone and the meticulous design put into this century-old gem are evident from the moment you step foot here. The venue offers a perfect blend of natural beauty and thoughtful architecture. The arches and windows exude charm, making it an ideal setting to capture those intimate moments. The wide-open spaces surrounding the barn create a sense of seclusion and rural charm. Your clients and their guests will have access to award-winning restaurants, accommodations, and the airport. This ensures a smooth and enjoyable experience for everyone.
The Most GORGEOUS Part of the Property
One of the highlights of this venue is the majestic 305-year-old Oak Tree. Its long-reaching branches form a perfect arch over the grass, providing a romantic setting for outdoor ceremonies. With garden chairs beneath its shade, you can be sure that your ceremony will be one to be remembered.
Inside the main barn, known as the Carriage Way, you’ll see the exquisite stone arches that stretch across the ceiling. The barn’s first level features original flooring with stone bricks, designed to create a smooth surface for carriages back in the day, while wood bricks on the sides offered softer footing for horses before their rides and races.
