Bellevue Berry Farm - Buena Vista Barn
11001 S 48th St, Papillion, NE 68133
Bellevue Berry Farm has a great, convenient location. They also have several different wedding locations to choose from, including: the Western Barn, and the Frontier Room, but my favorite is the Buena Vista Barn!
MY FAVORITE THING: Their outdoor reception area is SO pretty! It is backdropped by trees just enough where you don't get a ton of direct sunlight so your photos will be absolutely gorgeous! They also have a cute little fire pit outside, too. You could have marshmallow roasting for the kids (and let's be real... the adults, later!)
Wishing Hills Barn
2218 260th St, Missouri Valley, IA 51555
This venue is well worth the drive from Omaha because it is absolutely gorgeous! It's nestled in the Loess Hills and has beautiful views and country charm!
MY FAVORITE THING: Their bridal suite! It is HUUUUUGE and so pretty. It makes the perfect backdrop for taking getting ready pictures with your bridal party. They have oodles of counter space, lots of beautiful light and mirrors galore!
The Barn at the Ackerhurst Dairy Farm
15220 Military Rd, Bennington, NE 68007
I'm from Bennington, so I may be a little biased, but The Barn is just THE most gorgeous! They have beautiful grounds and you NEED to see their chandeliers in person! This is such a great venue for both indoor & outdoor pictures.
MY FAVORITE THING:
This location is located right off 156th & State street, so guests aren't doing any gravel road driving!
Bodega Victoriana Winery & Wedding Barn
60397 Kidd Rd, Glenwood, IA 51534
Bodega Winery is one of my favorites, because it is absolutely beautiful, but still has a laid back vibe... plus, you know... winery! CHEERS! Their barn has a great patio, as well as a balcony in the reception area that the guests can use.
MY FAVORITE THING: They have not one, but TWO pergolas that you can choose from to get married under. One backdropped by their vineyard fields. The other is backdropped by a little pond with a fountain and a rock waterfall.
Lilac Hill Wedding & Event Center
14704 156th St, Louisville, NE 68037
Their name alone is just dreamy, right? Located in Louisville, NE, this pretty barn venue is conveniently located right between Lincoln and Omaha.
MY FAVORITE THING: Lilac Hill's grounds are just to die for! There are tons of beautiful outdoor areas to take pictures. They have beautiful gardens, stone steps, and a dreamy swing for bridal portraits!
4066 325th St, Shelby, IA 51570
This venue is a little bit of a drive, but is a super beautiful and fun location. They have trails and trails on the property (seriously... I'm not sure if they end!). Their barn is super cute, too, and they have the most adorable bridal suite with a spectacular mirror!
MY FAVORITE THING: They have a pretty outdoor pergola area where you can get married, but they also have a really amazing chapel with tons of windows if you'd like an indoor wedding (or in case of icky weather!)... also, again... cute swing for bridal portraits!

Roca Berry Farm - Creekside Event Barn
16531 S 38th St, Roca, NE 68430
This venue isn't super close to Omaha, but I have to mention it, because it is super cute! Roca Berry Farm is located right outside of Lincoln, NE. This venue boasts two barns for events, the Creekside Event Barn (my fave!) and the Pioneer Event Barn.
MY FAVORITE THING: This venue overlooks Salt Creek and has fire pits you can enjoy, too!
