Three Reasons Why I Love Weddings at Dixon’s Apple Orchard in the Chippewa Valley

March 1, 2024



One of the most important wedding planning decisions you will make is selecting a venue. More than almost anything else you plan, your venue sets the mood for your entire day. There are so many things to consider when choosing a place to hold your wedding, so it can sometimes be helpful to get a professional opinion before finalizing your decision.

As a photographer, I have shot weddings at all kinds of locations. I love to nerd out and dissect the pros and cons of different venues and figure out what makes them unique. Through the years, I have definitely developed a few favorite locations that I always look forward to working at.

Dixon’s Apple Orchard in Chippewa Valley is a winner for me every single time. It’s a beautiful, operational orchard that is perfectly catered to host both large and small weddings. Every time I shoot there, I end up becoming a bigger and bigger fan. I’d love to share some things I love about this venue in the hopes that it helps you in your decision-making process.

Gorgeous Throughout All Seasons

Orchards are beautiful locations throughout the entire year, but Dixon’s takes beauty to another level. Each aspect of the property is intentionally crafted and regularly maintained, while still preserving the natural beauty of the location.

At a location like this, you get the benefit of stunning backdrops that vary based on the seasons. From bright blossoms in the spring to lush greenery in the summer and changing leaves in the fall, this location has everything. One thing I love about this location is that I feel like it really represents all the beauty and variety that Wisconsin has to offer.

Lots of Variety on The Property

If you’ve ever attended a wedding or taken a tour through this venue, you’ll know that it feels like a combination of several different venues in one. There are several different options for ceremonies to be held, each with a unique backdrop. Whether you choose the pond, woodland, or orchard location, you get a picturesque spot for your big day. You really can’t go wrong with any choice!

Booking here means you reserve the entire space, so your wedding will feel intimate and personal, despite the vast size of the property. Weddings at this orchard feel cozy, earthy, and rustic, but the background is open enough to accommodate any style.

Accommodating and Easy to Work With

When you’re searching for the perfect venue, it’s important to settle on one that makes coordinating details a breeze. I’ve only heard and experienced good things when it comes to this beautiful Wisconsin location. My couples love taking advantage of everything Dixon’s has to offer.

There are a lot of things to think about during your wedding planning, and it’s so helpful when your venue has amenities available to you. Dixon’s Orchard provides a bridal suite and a groom’s shack for couples to get ready in, an on-site reception venue, and the option to take engagement photos there before your big day.

From a photographer’s perspective, this orchard represents exactly what a venue should be. It’s beautiful, full of variety, and accommodates all of your needs. There are enough stresses that come with wedding planning, and choosing a venue with a perfect backdrop doesn’t have to be one of them.
