10. Mr. G’s Logan Creek Grille

Location: Door County, WI

Capacity: 400

Rating Online: 4.6 stars with 142 Reviews

A quaint and fun place to get married in Door County. Mr. G.’s is a historic supper club that’s been used for countless weddings and events. What makes this place special is undoubtedly the food! Mr. G.’s is well known for high quality food that everyone will enjoy.

It’s a bit more basic in the design and look of the event space so bring your creative mind when viewing. It can be customized to your liking, but it will take a bit more work to pull together. With space to host 400 guests though, this is a place to hold not just a wedding celebration, but a massive party for all your distant family and friends!

9. Sturgeon Bay Yacht Club

Location: Sturgeon Bay, WI

Capacity: 170

Rating Online: 4.5 stars with 66 Reviews

The Yacht Club is a wonderful place to get married right on the water. With a unique peninsula that stretches out far into the lake, your ceremony could feel like it’s floating in the water! And with the ability to host 170 people for an outdoor dinner on the water, this truly marks a unique experience for a wedding party.

The downside to the Yacht Club is the interior space leaves something to be desired. Feeling more like an old boat house, if your event gets pushed inside due to weather, it might feel underwhelming for your important day. It’s a slight risk-vs-reward scenario. The outdoor wedding would be breathtaking, but if you get bad weather it could turn sour for the overall look and feel of the space.

8. Woodwalk Gallery

Location: Door County, WI

Capacity: 250

Rating Online: 4.7 Stars with 80 Reviews

This beautiful “artistic barn” is actually a former barn-turned-art-gallery that can be turned into

a wedding venue! If that makes sense. It was bought by a couple who was married at this venue back in 2015 and they use it as an art studio for classes and rent out the space for weddings.

This charming rustic barn setting has a beautiful indoor and outdoor space to use how you please. With wooded trails, gardens and a September sunflower maze, this venue can be a real knockout for couples looking for something different and memorable. And with space to fit 250 guests, there’s plenty of space to host a solid wedding and party!

7. Bay Shore Inn

Location: Door County, WI

Capacity: 60

Rating Online: 4.8 Stars with 166 Reviews

The Bay Shore Inn boasts arguably the best views of any venue on our list. The outdoor venue space for the ceremony is directly on the lake and can mesmerize guests with tranquil beauty. The downside to this venue is the limited capacity for guests. Only 60 guests can comfortable be accommodated Bay Shore Inn due to their smaller size as a facility.

If you have a smaller wedding and are looking for a space that truly cannot be topped with the Door County outdoor feels, Bay Shore Inn might still be perfect for you. With built in coordinating and lodging built into the wedding package, it’s nearly a one-stop-shop for all things considered.

6. Donald and Carol Event Pavilion

Location: Door County, WI

Capacity: 120-200

Rating Online: 4.9 Stars with 60 Reviews

This wonderful pavilion (also known as the Kress Pavilion) is a great place for a slightly smaller wedding but lacks nothing in terms of charm and style.

4. Garden Gables

Location: Door County, WI

Capacity: 125

Rating Online: 5.0 Stars with 22 Reviews

This small-town outdoor wedding venue brings a lot of charm and elegance to the table for a great Door County venue! Originally just an abandoned barn and house, this space has taken years to revamp and restore by a local Door County couple. In fact, their original intention was just to build a space for their own wedding (which they did have in 2013), but it evolved from there as people began requesting the space for their own barn weddings.

The breathtaking photo opportunities on this property are endless, and with your design ideas this space can truly sparkle both in the day and night. With an outdoor stage to hose a band or DJ, this venue can be a one-of-a-kind experience for all to share.

The only real downsides to this space are the smaller capacity (only 125 guests), and the fact that it’s 4 miles away from the nearest lodging spaces. For most, these aren’t a big deal, but it’s what pushed the Garden Gables down slightly on our list.
