Calhoun Beach Club was the understated location I was looking for. They did it all and made the process effortless. I like in New York and grew up in Minneapolis and needed to do all of my planning long distance, they were extremely efficient and helpful. They did it ALL, decor, cake and food.
We had our ceremony on the big balcony (seats 200+), and it was a picture-perfect day. If it does rain, the CBC has a plan B, which involves moving everyone to their tables inside. We wouldn't have minded that (the inside is gorgeous, too), but it was definitely ideal to savor the fresh MN summer air.
The only thing some brides & grooms might find a bit annoying about the balcony is the traffic noise below, but if you have good amplification, you'll be more than fine.
The CBC knows how to host a party! From the service to the food (D'Amico) to the ambiance, this venue is wow-worthy. I'd highly recommend it... if you can snag the date you want (they go quickly).
The room looked so stunning! It took our breath away as well as our guests. We loved having the outdoor patio that overlooked the lake. It was such a beautiful day! The room was so classy and elegant, everyone had a great time.
We worked with Jason, who is no longer there, but CBC was very accommodating to our budget and personal needs. We were thrilled with the outcome - the meal, the decor, the set-up - all class.
