Crystal River Inn & Cottages is the perfect wedding venue for a small beautiful outdoor wedding and reception for a maximum of 50 guests. The historic farmstead is in the quaint and charming village of Rural, just minutes from Waupaca, Wisconsin and the Chain ‘O Lakes.  The Inn sits on the banks of the Crystal River which winds throughout the village.  Innkeepers, Paul & Shayna Cappelle, married at the Crystal River Inn & Cottages in May of 2011 and had the wedding of their dreams.

Wedding ceremonies are held by the riverside gazebo with the Crystal River flowing by peacefully.  Wedding receptions are held in an outdoor white wedding tent.  Guests are welcome to explore the 11.5 acres of our grounds with paths winding throughout our property.   Capture memories of your special day with the Crystal River, the bubbling Artisan well, prairies of native flowers in bloom and the beautiful historic home and barns. We can accommodate up to 50 guests for outdoor wedding ceremonies and receptions.

Paul & Shayna Cappelle will assist you in creating the wedding of your dreams.  We work with a number of local businesses and coordinate the rental of the tent, tables and chairs, beverage company, etc.  We’re happy to provide recommendations on caterers, florists, photographers, etc.
