Summer Wedding



Summertime in Chaska, Minnesota is one of our sweetest seasons at The Outpost Center. Our fields are filled with green, natural light illuminates our wedding home beautifully, and the season also welcomes couples and guests alike outside! In honor of their first anniversary, we thought it was high time we shared more details from Emily and Matthew’s summer wedding day. 

Emily and Matthew each spent their mornings getting ready with their bridesmaids and groomsmen onsite. Their photographer, Danielle Lund Photography, started her day by capturing wonderful photos of both of their wedding parties, and she also photographed E+M during their lovely first look outside. Once guests were seated for their outdoor ceremony, Emily walked down the aisle toward Matthew with her parents. We especially loved the music this pair included in their ceremony – “Perfect” by Ed Sheeran and “The Luckiest” by Ben Folds were both wonderful choices. 

To celebrate their new union, guests were invited to mingle and sip on drinks during cocktail hour before being welcomed into our favorite location – our barn – for dinner and dancing. The space was filled with long tables for guests, and Emily and Matthew sat at a sweetheart table at the front. Our favorite detail was their custom wooden backdrop complete with their monogram! After dinner, the couple and their guests enjoyed cupcakes in between keeping the dance floor full. 

Emily and Matthew’s wedding was a night to remember, and we’re so honored they chose The Outpost Center as the site where they entered into their marriage together!

Minnesota starts to come alive with the sounds of summertime in May, and we look forward to this month all year long! It’s also when we welcome our warmest months of weddings at The Outpost Center, and Callie and Grant were one of the couples who kicked off the fun during their late May wedding day!

Getting ready at The Outpost Center means our brides and grooms and their wedding parties can enjoy leisurely mornings spent apart and together. Callie and Grant each opted to get ready on site, and if the photos of Callie and her bridesmaids and Grant and his groomsmen are any indication, we think it’s safe to say everyone had a wonderful wedding morning. 

Before their ceremony, Callie and Grant elected to see each other for the first time on their wedding day during their first look. These moments are always filled with sweet emotion, and we love that first looks allow couples to have the chance to spend a few moments together to capture photos and pray before they walk down the aisle. 

Callie and Grant invited guests to their outdoor ceremony, and we loved how they adorned our arch and cross with florals to create a rustic, garden-inspired look. The bridesmaids looked beautiful in their mauve gowns, Callie looked stunning in her illusion and applique wedding dress, and Grant and his groomsmen looked dapper in their suits. The pink bouquets and boutonnieres tied their color palette together perfectly!

After their ceremony ended and they had run through a tunnel created by their wedding party, Callie and Grant welcomed guests to their cocktail hour, which was also hosted outside. Guests enjoyed appetizers, drinks, and lawn games while they mingled together before being welcomed into our airy barn. Once in the reception, the dance floor remained packed all night long, thanks to C+G and their fun-loving wedding party. 

After dinner, speeches, and plenty of fun, guests departed with favors honoring one of the couple’s grandmothers. And, we have to say we were sad to these this celebration come to a close! Congratulations again, Callie and Grant. 



Late spring and early summer is a gorgeous time here at The Outpost Center. It also happens to be wedding season (hooray), where we love seeing couples make the ultimate commitment to each other, in the presence of God, on their wedding day! 

Miranda & Bryce created an inviting environment for their guests- it was a touch chilly (no surprise here in MN, right?!), but the reception was cozy and sweet! We loved seeing the pretty deep blue paired with crisp white- it was a traditional, classic color duo that worked great at our venue! 

We're so thrilled for the couple and wish them all the best in this new journey and phase in life. We have faith that their faith will carry them through many many years!

Chad and Allison's rustic elegant wedding here at The Outpost was amazing! These two took advantage of everything our venue has to offer and provided a wonderful experience for their guests.

The celebratory gathering was ALL about treating & appreciating guests. Everyone was welcomed with so much love. Every detail was carefully planned and considered. We loved all of the creative signage Chad and Allison used too- guests knew exactly what to expect and where to go.   

The newlyweds hosted their cocktail hour outside - The weather was amazing! They set-up a tent on the patio, so guests could enjoy the breeze and sunshine, or relax in the shade. Yard games were set-up on the lawn and wine + beer and light hors d'oeuvres were served just outside of the tent. 

The reception was fabulous inside too! the live band was set-up for lots of dancing and a plentiful spread of delicious food.  Guests with sweet tooths were extra spoiled from the brownie sundaes and pie!

It was a joy to host this family! We continue to be blessed by the most wonderful couples.

Our 27 acres of rolling Minnesota countryside is a little piece of God's beautiful earth and we're so very grateful to be able to hold weddings here at The Outpost Center.

It was an incredible blessing to host Kallan and Amanda on their wedding day. These two beautiful souls united on a glorious Summer day with so much laughter and uplifting prayer surrounding them. 

We know they have a strong and long future ahead of them as husband and wife. We're humbled and thankful to have been part of the beginning of their lifelong story!
