Our wedding was fantastic, we had the best fall day in Minneapolis, not a cloud in the sky. All of our family and friends that traveled far and wide to come loved Minneapolis, some of them had never even been there before. The day of the wedding went so quickly, but all of our planning and attention to detail really paid off, and allowed us to really enjoy the experience and now be worrying about the little things.
Alice-Lynn Olson, the owner was fantastic, friendly and affordable. She met w/ us only once, but I felt like we were friends after that meeting. Our flowers were beautiful, she personally set everything up for us, sh was creative and innovative.
Melissa and Bridgit were so professional and fun. The pictures turned out fantastic, they are a mixture of traditional and documentary. Everyone one of our guests raved about them, and how you never knew they were there. They were fun, and creative, and well worth it!
Instead of party favors we opted to rent a photobooth so our guests would have a real memory to take w/ them, and something interactive for the guests. Everyone loved the photobooth, and we loved the guest book that the they created w/ the pictures.
We had our reception at the Calhoun Beach Club, and D'omico and Son's does all their catering. The food was fantastic. We had guests that actually asked to take food home. They worked w/ us on customizing the menu, and created special vegetarian options for our special vegetarian guests. Everyone raved about the food!
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.
The rooms were okay, nothing spectaular. We really picked this hotel for it's location, which couldn't be beat. With Brits Pub right next door, and Nicolette Mall a block away, it gave the guests a really good feel of what Minneapolis is like.
We had such a great night, the food was fantastic, however it wasn't presented in the way that we were expecting it, based on our food tasting. But the room looked great, the extra touches like the candles, created such a great ambiance. A great bonus was having the Salsa night live band afterwards. All of our guests had a great time dancing.
