16 Oaks is located on a 40 acre family farm in Southwest, Iowa located on the East edge of the city of Fontanelle. The Venue's spacious architecture provides a climate controlled area for up to 400 guests.
Our staff is dedicated to make sure each and every customer is happy and taken care of. We take pride in the versatility of our venue; no two events are the same because each customer is able to personalize their vision.
We wanted to provide a venue with modern conveniences but not to lose our country feel so we salvaged as much of the original barn as possible recreating it inside the new structure exactly 100 years later.
The restrooms, commercial kitchen and the full-services bar sit on the first level of the barn. The second story of the barn is finished as living quarters and can be used by the the bride to get ready if your ceremony is on-site.
The grounds surrounding the building have many areas for photo opportunities including two acres of vineyard, a walnut grove rimmed by a tree covered, natural amphitheater.
The other outdoor ceremony sits on top of the hill just West of the venue. This area is perfect to catch the breathtaking Iowa Sunsets.
In the unfortunate event of acclimate weather, we always have a back-up plan for an indoor ceremony.
