North Star Farm is a fantastic barn wedding venue in Le Sueur, Minnesota. Located less than an hour from Minneapolis (25 minutes from Mankato) this rustic owner-operated event space is a perfect spot to tie the knot. And although it’s out in the beautiful country, all the roads are paved, making it an easy place to access for your guests.

North Star Farm has been hosting weddings for almost a decade and their online reviews are just glowing. My awesome couple here, Danielle & Mike also agree, as the wonderful owners Rebecca & Scott were amazing to work with and you could tell they really cared about every single detail.

The wedding photo opportunities here are just awesome and endless too. Here’s a short list of some of my favorite spots to take your wedding photos at this century-old farmstead that overlooks the Minnesota River Valley:

Great Photo Opportunities:

  • Shaded Wedding Ceremony Area
  • Sweet Old Broken Down Car
  • Inside of the Old Rustic Wooden Barn
  • Ivy Covered Shed
  • Cool Corn Fields
  • Weathered Barn Wood-Slat Shed
  • Old Shed by the Corn Field Decorated in Tiki Lights
  • Beautiful Country Roads with Expansive Views
  • High Ridges Overlooking the Gorgeous Valley
  • Beautifully Manicured Flower Gardens by the Outdoor Tub and Old Well
  • Many Shaded Areas, Great for Formal Photos During Harsh Midday Sun
