Your Outdoor Wedding Venue

Nestled in the bluffs of the Town of LaFayette, between Eau Claire and Chippewa Falls WI, surrounded by nature's beauty and the quiet tranquility of forests and apple orchards, White's Wildwood Retreat is a one-of-a-kind destination for your wedding.

The possibilities are limited only by your imagination. Our lodge and cabin can comfortably accommodate 33 overnight guests — a perfect venue for your wedding party and out-of- town guests.

White's Wildwood Retreat is your blank canvas on which you can create your dream wedding. Our outdoor ceremony area is a natural, grassy amphitheater culminating at a rustic bridge that can be used as a picturesque backdrop or to hold your wedding party. We offer flexibility in all areas, from catering and beverages to decorations. You may choose to have your wedding in a grassy aisle under a canopy of blue sky and golden sunshine or a romantic walk through the wooded countryside — the possibilities are endless.

Our newly constructed pavilion was designed with you in mind and is large enough to accommodate the grandest of weddings. Beautifully finished both inside and out, you will feel like you are still outside as it is surrounded by forest and flowers. From your rehearsal dinner, ceremony, to reception, White's Wildwood Retreat is the setting to create the wedding of your dreams.

So what if it rains? There is an old saying that rain on your wedding day is a lucky omen. You are doubly lucky if your wedding is being held at this Wisconsin wedding venue. They will flawlessly transition your wedding ceremony to the pavilion.

A Wedding Reception Under the Stars

Liven up the night. Continue your outdoor wedding celebration with a reception held under a giant 48'x90' pavilion, or if you prefer, move indoors to the Wildwood Lodge.

After dinner, dim the lights and set the mood for the dance. There are 62 interior LED lights set up in eight zones, all on dimmer switches. The inside perimeter has switched outlets every eight feet if you would like to add accent lighting. The pavilion can accommodate up to 400 guests.

The great room of the lodge offers comfortable seating for your wedding guests who just want to relax in quiet conversation while others dance the night away outside.

And when the music stops, reserve the Wildwood Lodge or Cabin for your family or wedding party to stay the night. The Lodge offers accommodations for 21 people, the Cabin for 12. Your wedding guests will enjoy the charming rustic luxury of the rooms and thank you for your thoughtfulness. It's the perfect way to end your wedding reception.

Wedding Showers and Bachelorette Parties

The rustic ambiance of our Wisconsin retreat center is perfect for your shower, be it a traditional bride's or a contemporary couple's shower. Bring the outdoors in through the windows of the grand room or add warmth and comfort to your wedding event in front of the fireplace in the great room. Both the Lodge and Cabin have full kitchens stocked with all the cookware and dishes you will need to serve a luncheon, if desired. Both facilities have handicap accessible bathrooms.

Make the great Wisconsin outdoors your bachelorette venue. Skip the driving from one bar to the next. Escape with your friends to an afternoon of fun and games – ladder ball, croquet, dodge ball. Play like you were kids again! When the sun sets, gather around the fire pit to toast marshmallows. Remember s'mores? Reminisce about your past lives together and indulge in dreams of what the future holds for you.
