Rustic, charming, and

Uniquely you.

Located on the scenic Wild Rice River between rural Colfax & historic Abercrombie, North Dakota, Crooked Lane Farm is an ideal country setting for weddings and celebrations. Our comfortable farmstead offers a rustic venue which lends a sense of purpose, joy, and peace for your perfect event.

Say ‘I do’

The Ceremony

Choose from two unique settings for your marriage ceremony. Each offers a private location that allows you to style your wedding as you choose.  For each setting we provide chairs, transportation, and an altar table.


Time to mingle

The Reception

After the ceremony, its time to celebrate! Chose one of three locations perfectly suited for whatever type of reception you have planned. Whether you choose to be indoors, outdoors, or both, your guest will find themselves in a setting that allows for movement, conversation and comfort. You can count on us to provide rectangular tables, chairs, and white tablecloths.
