About the Pines

Nestled in the North Dakota countryside just a short drive from Fargo, our unique property is home to two remarkable award-winning venues; Pines White and Pines Black. Surrounded by trees and farmland, the Pines offers a tranquil and inspiring environment for your special event. The property includes vast open spaces, ample parking, outdoor gathering areas, and two unique event centers for your wedding or special event.

This stunning and unique rural setting is a premier host site for weddings, elopements, and events ranging from 25-400 people in the Fargo area. Whether you’re looking to host your wedding reception, your entire wedding day, or your next corporate event, we’d love to host you at the Pines.

Our custom-built, barn-inspired, event venues were thoughtfully designed to offer a timeless blank canvas for your event. The Pines venues feature everything you’ll need to create a memorable event experience; a wide-open floor plan with a welcoming reception area, elegant bathrooms, an expansive great hall, dedicated event prep suites, designated ceremony areas, and an on-site bar.

 

Pines Mission

Provide exceptional and memorable event experiences that cultivate life’s biggest moments.

Pines History and Creation

In 2018, The Pines was founded with a passion for design and unique social experiences. The Grain Designs team had been renting the property’s “farm shop” for years prior and fell in love with the tranquility and rural freedoms that the property offered. A decision was made to purchase the property in early 2018 and the team immediately began envisioning what The Pines could become. Months later, the Pines Weddings & Events was formed and Pines White was completed, hosting the first wedding in September of 2018.

The Pines property has an optimistic future but also a storied past. Dating back to the late 1800s and early 1900s, the property was previously the Kennedy Bonanza Farm. This farm was home to two massive horse barns, a workshop, the main house, worker lodging, and even a general store. “The Kennedy Bar” inside Pines White pays homage to the property’s past. “The 120 Bar & Lounge” in Pines Black is a nod to the massive 120’x120’ draft horse barns that were once on the property where Pines Black sits today. Years later the property became a family farm which passed down for generations until it was reimagined by Grain Designs to host unique weddings and events!

It is truly our pleasure to share this property with you. The Grain Designs team has designed and crafted unique furniture and moments all over the property including many pieces in the farmhouse, Pines Black lounge, tables for both Pines venues, sliding doors, custom signs, and more. We hope you enjoy the property as much as we have!
