Noelle Stockstad - I got married to my best friend on June 8th, 2019 at The Yard. When we visited the venue for the first time, we fell in love instantly. It was the only venue we looked at because we were so absolutely certain this was the place to celebrate our love. Everything about this space is a straight dream come to life.
Cliff Enns, the host, has a heart that is unmatched. His sole intention is to meet you exactly where you are and bring your vision to life, which he most definitely achieved for us. He is SO accommodating with everyone involved and makes it extremely easy for vendors, guests, and family to enjoy the day – stress free.
The Venue itself has the most romantic and love filled vibes. You can feel the love the moment you step foot on sight. The barn is PERFECT for a beautiful dance floor, dessert table, head table, and DJ.
There are endless options for setting up your big day exactly as you want it. We decided to rent out the on-site bed and breakfast for the bridal party to stay the night before and it was so perfect. It was a great way for all of us to bond together and share in memories. The groomsmen also got to use this space to get ready the day of so that they could cool off and stay hidden!
Cliff also has a incredible bridal suite that is full of mirrors and chair, perfect for getting the girls ready on the day of. It is like a girls beauty room on a bucket list kind of level.
We could not have asked for a more perfect venue and perfect day.
The weather was a little bit crazy on our day of but with the barn being so beautiful I had no doubt in my heart that even if we would have had to move things inside . . . we would have made it work and it would still be beautiful.
Luckily, God had other plans.
The storm came in hot, but as soon as I was getting ready to walk down the aisle . . . the clouds parted. LITERALLY parted and went AROUND us.
I am so grateful for this venue and would highly recommend it to any and all brides that are looking for a stress free, love filled, magical day.
There is no doubt that our Creator has a presence here.
I felt it every step of the way.

Brooke Meyer - I have nothing but positive things to say about The Yard! As a photographer (North Lea Photo), I can say with certainty this is one of the most gorgeous and vibrant locations for a North Dakota / Minnesota wedding.
The scenery is beautiful, inside and outside! The owner made the occasion that much more enjoyable, as he was friendly and helpful the entire day. Highly recommend!

Rachael Ochs - Cliff is amazing to work with. He makes himself available to you all day for whatever you may need, and helps. He even makes a sign with your names on it for guests to see when they pull up. Unfortunately, we had some rain on our day, but he had everything ready for that scenario.
Everything was set and ready for us. The work he has done to make it a great experience (from when we toured over a year ago) looks great. I almost wish I didn’t get married there yet, just to see how much more he is making it to be even more beautiful than it is.
He keeps the lines of communication open throughout the whole process. He sent me a last minute new seating arrangement that worked great for us and I am glad we changed.
It is an easy venue for days like mine when rain changes the plans . . . the transition was easy. At our wedding the guests kept complimenting us on how beautiful it was and the property (which it is). There are a lot of options to get beautiful pictures. I would choose Cliff and this venue again. Service 5.0 Location 5.0

Sonja and Nathan Stang - The Yard was an amazing venue. We were lucky to book it just a few months before our date! It is set right next to the Red River and has so many beautiful areas for photos to be taken. The reception hall is gorgeous. You would never guess that is what the building looks like on the inside from just seeing the outside.
It did not take much to decorate, as it was very classy to begin with. We had space inside for all of our guests for the reception and meal.
We brought in a live band and had our party outside on the lawn/outdoor dance floor. Lights on the trees and the cool grain bin – turned bar were unique touches.
The owner was very flexible and worked with us on our vision. He was responsive, available, and truly “in it” with us.
He was outside during the duration of the day, helping move items and transitioning from the ceremony to the party. Guests had nothing but compliments on the venue.
With the updates the owner is preparing to do, events at The Yard will only get better. We highly recommend The Yard!

Janessa Fillipi - The YARD venue has so much to offer and is able to accommodate many different types of events! Down Home nonprofit hosted their Hoedown fundraiser at this phenomenal venue, and it continues to be the topic of many conversations.
From the ease and flow of the evening to the gorgeous setting, layout versatility, and Cliff’s creative and innovative ideas, Down Home’s event was nothing short of a huge success. Check out the venue for yourself and start planning the possibilities for your next event.

Marti Hoekstra - Having our wedding at the Yard was a dream come true. Cliff takes his weddings and events PERSONAL and puts his WHOLE SELF into your day. It was amazing to see it all come together- to seeing the set up for the ceremony and reception - to seeing the personalized sign at the end of the driveway.
He puts the LITTLE details into the work that make it personal and extra special!!!
This is a GEM of a spot, and we feel honored to be the first couple to dance in the barn! The entire spot captures, rustic, nature’s natural beauty, yet ELEGANT all at the same time.
We created so many memories throughout the entire planning process, from our first visit to tour, to the wedding rehearsal, to me and the girls getting ready on site to our ceremony and reception.
Our guests had nothing but POSITIVE feedback, and all commented about how much fun they were having as well as how different and beautiful it is out there.
ALSO – BRIDES – the photos. SERIOUSLY so many options – trees, field, river, grass – it is PERFECTION. Go with the DREAM package on his site – I promise you will NOT be disappointed.
Cliff puts his heart into every event, is SO accommodating, and made it our BEST DAY EVER.

Kelly Brown - What can I say about The Yard . . . We were married July 27, 2018. It was the most perfect day. I couldn't have wished for better!! The scenery was beautiful, the ballroom was perfect for our dinner, everything was just wonderful down to the last detail.
I would highly recommend The YARD to anyone who is looking for the perfect outdoor wedding!
We were even lucky enough to use the outdoor dance floor, which had outdoor tables and chairs close by and very close to the Bin There Bar. We were the first wedding out there, and thanks to Cliff Enns we had the perfect day!!
Cliff Enns is very accommodating. He asked my opinion on everything down to the smallest detail, and was a huge help when we had a dress malfunction, he was there with safety pins and a scissors.
I honestly couldn’t recommend a better venue for your perfect day! We had such a wonderful time at our wedding at The YARD!! I hope that this beautiful property gets used many times over and over!! Thank you Cliff Enns for being so helpful with our wedding day!!

We had chance for rain all day, but had a plan b in place if needed. It was really nice to not have Cliff or Angie ask me to make decisions regarding what we “would” do if we had to.
They did everything behind the scenes and pulled off our ceremony exactly as we had imagined! Cliff and Angie were amazing and made me feel so confident with all of my choices.
I am so glad I went with The Yard and would recommend it to anyone.

Hannah Torgerson - The Yard really got us out of a pickle by allowing us to book only 6 weeks out from our wedding date after our previous venue fell through due to the pandemic.
Considering all of the adversity that had to be overcome in the current COVID-19 climate, our wedding reception went off without a hitch.
Everything was set and ready for us. The work he has done to make it a great experience (from when we toured over a year ago) looks great.
Safety precautions were Cliff’s number one priority, and we were able to collaborate well so as to navigate these uncharted waters of increased need for sanitation and hygiene.
He sent me a last minute new seating arrangement that worked great for us and I am glad we changed. It is an easy venue for days like mine when rain changes the plans, but the transition was easy.
My husband and I received myriad compliments on our reception venue, a number of which remarked that it was far better than the venue we originally booked.
It truly was a perfect evening that made a lasting impression on our guests. You would be hard pressed to find a more beautiful place to celebrate your wedding!

Great idea to use pews for seating – and they were painted white – how clever. And had a pond in the back where the bride and groom stood to say their vows.
Definitely would recommend this place to others.

He allowed us to use his PA system, microphones and screen which were high quality. The grounds are lovely and well groomed. Great fun and learning was had by all!

Casondra Duckworth - I have to start this by saying CLIFF IS THE BEST! When looking for a wedding venue, I was looking for an outdoor space, but I was amazed by how beautiful The YARD was!
Cliff was absolutely amazing to work with from day 1.
From showing us around the property in the dead of winter and helping us envision what it would like without the snow, to customizing table layouts and helping us find the best way to walk down the aisle, Cliff made us look GOOD!
Everything was well spaced out to allow for adequate social distancing and he was always available prior to our event to answer questions regarding COVID impacts on our event.
I can’t thank Cliff enough for the absolutely stunning ceremony and reception space and the gorgeous bridal parlor.
Nobody could stop talking about how gorgeous the venue was.
Everything about The YARD was absolutely perfect and better than I could have ever imagined.

Most importantly Cliff and Angie genuinely care about you and your wedding.
We planned our wedding at The Yard all from 800+ MILES away and during a PANDEMIC.
As you can imagine this brought many challenges but The Yard was incredibly accommodating and continuously addressed all concerns and worries.
The atmosphere is wonderful and a beautiful space to start your marriage.
