Brambleberry is the ideal alternative to a courthouse wedding, providing warmth and charm a government office can’t. Bring your bride or groom and your Wisconsin marriage license application (purchased at least six days in advance) and we’ll take care of the rest.We offer elopements and small weddings Sunday through Friday. Peak season small Saturday weddings are only available with less than 60 days notice if no large weddings are booked that day.November through April Brambleberry can host small weddings or elopements any day in the inn or winery until the weather permits outdoor ceremonies in the spring. In many cases we are able to host a small wedding with as little as one week’s notice.

Short and sweet — $150 for a simple civil or religious ceremony without all the frills. Ceremony is in the Wine Garden or library. Up to eight guests. Allow 10 to 15 minutes. Officiant provided. We will file the marriage license at the Jackson County Courthouse.
