Lindsey, 2017 Bride

Our wedding was held here on June 3rd, 2017 and it far exceeded any expectations we had. Keith and Linda are delightful people to work with and genuinely cared about making our wedding a success. The venue itself is beautiful; there is a lot of open space to utilize, the 2 story barn is rustic yet kept up very well, the brides’ room and grooms’ room are gorgeous, and the silo where our bartenders worked out of was unique and beautiful. The indoor bathrooms are adorable and the bonfire pit offered entertainment after the sun set. I cannot imagine finding a better venue or better people to have celebrated our special day with.

I cannot say enough about Keith and Linda Cooper and Coop’s Event Barn. Our wedding was absolute perfection and I’m so happy we chose to have our big day at Coop’s. From the very first visit, everything was fun and easy. They helped me with ideas of what’s been done before and sometimes who had been out there previously, to start my vendors searches. Keith and Linda really facilitate everything you could want or dream for your big day and will always help to make it happen. We visited a few times between first choosing the venue and our wedding, because I am a pretty detailed planner 🙂 But that really helped to organize all of my thoughts and what I was dreaming of doing, and they roll right along with it! I’ve never met two people so thrilled to see other’s dreams come true and start out their new path in life, on the best foot. Our guests have been raving for the past 2 weeks about how great our wedding was. A lot of them keep saying, the venue, the venue, the venue! It was so beautiful, unique, and made our wedding truly one of a kind. The ceremony, the cocktail hour, dinner, and dance were all perfection. And on the big day, Keith, Linda, and their diligent workers made sure everything went off without a hitch and so smoothly. I was truly present throughout my day and able to enjoy everything because I had no worries or concerns. Everything was exactly how I wanted it and I trusted Coop’s to get it done, boy did they deliver! I’ll miss Keith and Linda so much, so happy we were able to have our wedding here. They are truly a pleasure. We love Coop’s!

We have had the opportunity to setup for 2 separate events at the barn. What a wonderful setup! The space is well cared for and the owners are a pleasure to work with. Very attentive and also very accommodating. Would highly recommend booking events at this venue!

Lori, 2017 Mother of the Bride

This is the most beautiful venue in Southern MN!! It was a joy to work with Keith and Linda Cooper. They are so accommodating and helpful and made sure our special day was all that we had dreamed!! Our daughter’s wedding was absolutely perfect and was held at the most beautiful and perfect location! Thank you Keith and Linda for the use of your barn! 

Shelby, 2016 Bride

HANDS DOWN – the BEST venue! K&L are incredibly helpful and the sweetest people I have ever met! They helped fuel + create the barn wedding of my dreams for one of the most memorable days of my life! Thank you can’t even begin to cover everything you did for me, my bridal party, and family during our wedding weekend! Xo!!

Mike, 2016 Groom

My wife and I got married there just under a year ago can not say enough good things about our experience there. Keith and Linda were excellent and their property is absolutely beautiful. Our day was better than I ever expected.elsey, 2015 Bride

Kelsey, 2015 Bride

My husband and I got married here June of 2015. Everything was absolutely perfect. We worked with Keith and Linda for over a year getting everything planned and boy did they make it easy! They were honest with ideas, reachable, and you could tell they LOVED their jobs. Linda is very creative and can help with any decorating questions you might have. Keith did so much more than we ever anticipated. You don’t expect the venue owners to help with set up and take down but he went above and beyond to help, and make sure we had everything we needed. I love that Coop’s allows you to bring in our own caterer. It really allowed us to find a place not only within our budget, but one that had food we wanted. Coop’s has several decor items that you can rent from them which made the planning and decorating process even easier. Last, but certainly not least, Coop’s allowed us to have the romantic, intimate wedding we dreamed of whilst still enjoying the outdoors. I could go on and on about all the wonderful things Coop’s has to offer. If you are looking for an outdoor venue, look no further!

Abi, 2015 Bride

My husband and I went to visit Coop’s when we were looking at venues for our wedding. It was love at first sight! Keith showed us around the property and his passion and excitement to share his place with others was contagious. After we toured all the buildings and saw the items that were available for rental, Keith even sat down with us and provided us with ideas and resources for caterers and other wedding-related things like that. He was so kind and helpful! When we got in the car to leave I told my (at the time, future) husband that I didn’t think we needed to look anywhere else. Coop’s had the perfect rustic feel that we were looking for and I knew we’d found the one. Keith and Linda are extremely active in finding new ways to make Coop’s an even better venue. From the time we first visited to the time of our wedding they added a whole new building with a bridal suite and restrooms, built an absolutely gorgeous, big deck off the back end of the barn, and much more. We love how everything is made with recycled barn materials. It really gives the place an authentic feel. We also love how we had ample time to be able to set things up exactly how we wanted. Coop’s allowed us to rent out the place for the ENTIRE weekend of our wedding. How many venues do that?! It took so much pressure and stress off of everyone. As the bride, I was expecting to feel stressed and nervous, but with everything that Coop’s was able to provide and do for us, I can honestly say that I never felt that way! Our wedding was perfect and we can owe that, in large part, to Keith, Linda, and their incredible venue. Highest of recommendations!

Melissa, 2014 Bride

We wanted an outdoor venue that allowed for indoor/outdoor options in case of inclement weather without having to pay for expensive tenting and the like. Choosing Coop’s as our venue was the best decision that we made during our entire wedding planning process. It set the stage for everything else to fall into place and these venue owners were absolute gems of the rarest sort. Keith and Linda were consummate professionals from beginning to end, always organized, fast to respond (within an hour, usually) accommodating of our schedules, and Midwest hospitable on top of it all. You can’t find finer folks in the world, much less in the wedding business which we found can often be a mess of ego, attitude and chaos. There was not a single detail astray when it came to our venue. They knew all of our family, greeted us with hugs, got excited about our ideas, and offered many of their own that were immensely helpful to our planning. They gave us more than enough time to decorate and tear down and worked flawlessly with our vendors. You can tell they have pride in their business and carry it out with kindness and favors you would never expect. They became like family to us and we even invited them to join in on the festivities during the evening. They chatted with our guests that night and popped in to say hello from time to time, but for the most part, they were still making sure that everything was humming along perfectly. I cannot imagine having had our wedding at a more wonderful place. The customer service is just the cherry on top of a beautiful venue. Many guests had s’mores by the fire pit, some danced the night away in the upper level, couples stole time away alone to relax in the quiet of the granary, while others took walks after dinner around the gorgeous manicured property. There was a spot for every mood. If you’re on the fence about whether this is “the” place for you and your significant other — don’t be. You will not regret choosing Coop’s!

Cynthia, Mother of a 2015 Bride

My daughter and son-in-law were married at Coop’s Event Barn in late May 2015. We were exceptionally pleased with everything! The barn, grounds, and surrounding buildings are lovely, and they allowed us plenty of time to decorate. Keith and Linda were so kind and pleasant to deal with, and they always responded quickly to our questions. For most of our guests, the wedding was their first time to visit Coop’s, and we heard over and over that we had chosen the perfect spot.

Kelly, 2014 Bride

We got married at Coop’s Event Barn Sept. 6th, 2014, and it was nothing short of MAGICAL!! Keith and Linda went above and beyond to make sure our day was PERFECT!! Still to this day I would change nothing about the venue I chose to spend the rest of my life with my husband! Our guests were overly satisfied with the accommodations and that was BEFORE they added their new addition this year! Thank you again Keith and Linda for providing us with an extraordinary venue!!!! 🙂
