    I voted barn, once past the outside its stunning and would fit with the colours ideas you have already. If you’re not “Golf Club” people, don’t do it, incorporate chandeliers in your centerpieces or something like that ๐Ÿ™‚

    Larson’s Barn or Withrow Ballroom.  Love the chandeliers too, but it just doesn’t fit as well with your rustic look.  Actually although you like it the least, I bet the ballroom would be easily transformed with what you have planned.

    @soontobehisbride:  I would say either the first option because it is right by the lake and would make for some gorgeous wedding pictures! But then if it rains, it could be really messy, wet, and muddy. But the resort looks absolutely gorgeous especially the ceremony area, that is so beautiful with the lake behind you! The trees would look gorgeous too along with the lake. And the lodge could still be used for that rustic look you are going for. Not to mention that the lodging is right where your ceremony and reception will be. Depending on how many people you are inviting, that is awesome! ๐Ÿ™‚ Does the lodge do their own catering too? 

    The barn is also beautiful and would probably be the best fit for you in regards to your theme. From the pictures, the barn looks like it is really well taken care of beautiful with all the woodwork! In regards to lodging, is there a town nearby with reasonable lodging? And does the cost include catering? I wouldn’t want to get married at a place if there isn’t reasonable lodging nearby that doesn’t cost too much!

    If you aren’t sure of any of these, I would keep looking. I love lakes and being near water so I vote for the lodge, but the venues you have looked at so far look like they are decent. It just depends on what you and your FI want. Good luck! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I voted barn – I inititally thought it was a bit heavy on the darker colours in the interior, but reading your description of rustica combined with fall colours the barn really is perfect. I could picture it!

    Torn between the barn and the resort due to the lodging… Eventually, I voted on the barn as it’s so romantic, but I think the resort would work just as well (love the fact that they’re both by water)!

    And while the chandeliers are beautiful, I wouldn’t pick a venue just based on that!

    Based on your decor choice, I went with barn.  I did rustic, we had a log cabin, because there were no barns available.  Your decor reminds me of mine, so barn!

    I would pick the barn. Depending on where you are from, Duluth could be a long drive for your guests.

    @soontobehisbride:  I voted for the barn because I think it would go well with your theme.  Based on the pictures you provided, it looks like it could very easily be transformed into a gorgeous wedding venue … I especially love the lighting in the first picture of that venue.

    The resort is a close second (so pretty!), but I think with a rustic/shabby chic theme you really can’t go wrong with the barn.

    @soontobehisbride:  Based on your vision, I voted barn, but personally, I like the 3rd choice the best–that ballroom is just stunning!

    I love the barn but if lodging is an issue that could be very problematic!
